The NFL now has closed the books on 50 Super Bowls. And in a 32-team league, only 19 of the teams have ever won a Lombardi Trophy.
Which means that (abacus engaged) 13 teams have never won a Super Bowl. That’s nearly half of the entire league.
The non-champions are the Bills, Browns, Bengals, Jaguars, Texans, Titans, Chargers, Eagles, Vikings, Lions, Panthers, Falcons, Cardinals.
Since the Buccaneers exited that list in Super Bowl XXXVII, only the Saints in Super Bowl XLIV and the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII have joined the ranks of the Lombardi owners.
So as the NFL embarks on the next 50 Super Bowls, the question is how much smaller this bizarro baker’s dozen will be after the NFL plays what likely will be the next championship game that ditches the Roman numeral C for 100.
