Quarterbacks with the most Super Bowl wins ft. Tom Brady, John Elway, and others
It's difficult enough to make it to the Super Bowl; conquering it is even more challenging. In the long history of the NFL's largest event, 36 different quarterbacks have won Super Bowls, but which of them has taken home more than one championship overall?
#5 - Quarterbacks with Two Super Bowl Wins
Eight quarterbacks have acquired two championships each, completing an elite group of passers who have won more than one Lombardi Trophy. The Manning siblings, Peyton and Eli, are part of this group.
With the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos, Peyton Manning won a Super Bowl, while Eli won with the New York Giants. John Elway, Bob Griese, Jim Plunkett, Roger Staubach, Ben Roethlisberger, and Bart Starr are the quarterbacks for their respective teams: the Denver Broncos, the Miami Dolphins, the Oakland Raiders, the Dallas Cowboys, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Green Bay Packers.
#4 - Troy Aikman - 3 Wins – Dallas Cowboys
The gentleman you see every weekend whenever a big game is on FOX, Troy Aikman is the first footballer on our list of players with more than two victories. He steered the Dallas Cowboys to 3 Super Bowl victories in four seasons. Aikman triumphed with the Cowboys in 1993, 1994, and 1996, after his first victory, he was awarded the Super Bowl MVP award.
#3 - Terry Bradshaw - 4 Wins – Pittsburgh Steelers
Terry Bradshaw is almost without equal when it comes to Super Bowls. He led the Steelers to four Super Bowl appearances in six seasons, winning each one. He now ranks second in Super Bowl victories along with Joe Montana. He was named MVP in two of those four games.
Bradshaw's 73.7% playoff win rate ranks second all-time among quarterbacks with at least ten career postseason starts. Tom Brady is the only player with a higher postseason win rate.
#2 - Joe Montana - 4 Wins – San Francisco 49ers
Joe Montana's resume is the ideal synthesis of stellar Super Bowl supremacy and excellent career-throwing statistics.
He played in four Super Bowls, winning three of them and earning MVP honors in three of them. Montana held the record for the most Super Bowl touchdowns in a career with 11 until Tom Brady surpassed it in 2015. He was selected to the Pro Bowl eight times, twice as league MVP, and three times as First Team All-Pro.
#1 - Tom Brady - 7 Wins – New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Brady, perhaps the greatest quarterback in history, has appeared in 10 Super Bowls, a milestone in the NFL, and has won five MVP honors, the most ever for a player.
Tom Brady guided the New England Patriots to a Super Bowl victory by beating the St. Louis Rams, 20-17, during his first year as the club's starting quarterback in 2001. He later won consecutive championships in 2003 and 2004, and in 2014, he ultimately won his fourth Super Bowl. Two seasons later, he broke the record for most victories in a Super Bowl, and in 2018, he added a sixth championship.
In his first year with the Buccaneers, he improved his record by winning his seventh Super Bowl.
