About This Quiz

Vince Lombardi is considered by many to be the greatest to ever coach the game of football. He once famously said, "Winning isn't everything; it's the only thing." True or not? That's a harsh reality for some, perhaps, but it's nothing short of the truth when it comes to the NFL.

Consider the case of the New England Patriots. Yeah, yeah, we know, Patriots "fatigue" is a real thing, but think about this: In 2007, the team that everyone loves to hate was stacked. We're talking Tom Brady, Randy Moss, a little help on the line from Logan Mankins, a defense with the likes of Mike Vrabel and Vince Wilfork ... stacked with a capital "S." The team blew through its 16-game schedule to emerge undefeated – the first team, in fact, to achieve that level of success since the 1972 Dolphins. They were poised to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl XLII.

Except ... they didn't. They were upset 17-14 in the title game by the pesky New York Giants. While its undefeated regular and playoff season record stood, the Pats ended the 2007 campaign with a lone blemish (the biggest blemish!) on its record. 

For many, the Super Bowl victor is all that's remembered from a season of great plays, thrilling victories and edge-of-your-seat two-minute warnings. Which leads us to this quiz. (You knew it all tied together, didn't you?) What kind of championship sleuth are you? Can you identify the team in question based on the number of all-time championships gathered by the franchise? We're talking AFC and NFC division winners and Super Bowl victors here. Gather the trophies and titles ... it's time to celebrate the NFL's big winners!
