Since the first Super Bowl in 1967, the Super Bowl has showcased a history of winning streaks by both the AFC & NFC.
Super Bowl: The First Super Bowls
In 1967, the Green Bay Packers made history as the first-ever Super Bowl champion after defeating the Kansas City Chiefs inside Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum in California. The following year, fans with Super Bowl tickets witnessed the Green Bay Packers' repeat as Super Bowl winners, this time notching the W over the Oakland Raiders inside Florida's Miami Orange Bowl. In both Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II, Green Bay Packers QB Bart Starr was named MVP.
Super Bowl: AFL & AFC Rule the Game
The AFL New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs tallied Super Bowl wins in 1969 and 1970, respectively. From 1971-1980, Super Bowl tickets featured the Miami Dolphins and Pittsburgh Steelers (both of the AFC) combining for six Super Bowl titles within the decade. During the 1973 season, fans with Super Bowl tickets witnessed the Miami Dolphins make NFL history as the only team to complete a perfect season, even to this day. The Dallas Cowboys became the only NFC to break the AFC's winning trend, capturing Super Bowl victories in 1972 and 1978.
Super Bowl: NFC Makes a Comeback
After the AFC dominated the 1970s, the NFC bounced back, winning 16 of the next 20 Super Bowl games between the early '80s and late '90s. From 1984 through 1996, Super Bowl tickets featured the NFC reeling off 13 consecutive Super Bowl wins. Fans with Super Bowl tickets enjoyed the dominance of Joe Montana and the San Francisco 49ers, the most successful NFL franchise of the '80s with four Super Bowl victories. Super Bowl tickets also featured wins by the 1985 Chicago Bears, and two Super Bowl wins apiece for the Washington Redskins and Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders.
To kick off the 1990s, the New York Giants and Washington Redskins were crowned as Super Bowl winners. It wasn't until 1993 that the Dallas Cowboys triplets - Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin - helped catapult the Cowboys to Super Bowl titles in 1993, 1994, and 1996. With Super Bowl tickets in 1995, fans saw the San Francisco 49ers make history by winning their fifth Super Bowl championship. After the 1996 NFL season, fans with Super Bowl tickets watched QB Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers emerge as Super Bowl winners in 1997.
Super Bowl: AFC Back in Power
The Denver Broncos - led by QB Jon Elway - powered the AFC's surge back to Super Bowl prominence starting in 1998 to snap the NFC's 13-game winning streak. The AFC would go on to win eight of the next 10 Super Bowl match ups, crowning the AFC's Baltimore Ravens (2001), the dynasty-forging New England Patriots (2002, 2004, 2005), Pittsburgh Steelers (2006), and Indianapolis Colts (2007) as champions. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and last season's New York Giants were the only two teams to bring home Super Bowl titles back to the NFC.
Super Bowl: 2009 Season
Super Bowl 43 will kick off on Sunday, February 1, 2009, inside Tampa, Florida's Raymond James Stadium, and already Super Bowl tickets are in high demand. The last time the Super Bowl was held inside Raymond James Stadium, fans with Super Bowl tickets watched the AFC Baltimore Ravens walk away with an easy 34-7 win over the New York Giants. While the reigning champion New York Giants are picked as a favorite to win it all, the Super Bowl Championship is up for grabs as there is no clear-cut winner in 2009.
