Which Quarterback Has Won The Most Super Bowls?

Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady is in a class of his own when it comes to Super Bowl success. He won his first Lombardi Trophy in the 2002 Super Bowl, upsetting the “Greatest Show on Turf” Rams to bring the Patriots their first-ever Super Bowl title and claiming the game’s MVP award. He would add additional titles in 2004 and 2005 before a lengthy hiatus. Ten years later, in 2015, Brady’s Patriots overcame the Seahawks’ legendary “Legion of Boom” defense for his fourth ring, tying Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw for the most all-time. In 2017, Brady led a record 25-point comeback in the Super Bowl to defeat the Atlanta Falcons and claim his record fifth ring. He padded his lead with a sixth and seventh championship in 2019 and 2021, except his last one came with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, not the New England Patriots to cap off the most Super Bowls in the history of Super Bowl QBs.

How Many Quarterbacks Have Won Multiple Super Bowls?

In the history of Super Bowl quarterbacks, there have been 12 different quarterbacks who have won multiple titles, accounting for almost half of all Super Bowl wins (24). 9 are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame—Starr, Griese, Stabler, Staubach, Bradshaw, Montana, Young, Aikman and Elway while two more (Brady and Peyton Manning) are surefire first-ballot inductees when they finally become eligible.

Eli Manning is far from a guarantee but his two Super Bowl wins against Brady’s mighty Patriots ensure that he has a puncher’s chance. McMahon and Simms are conspicuous outliers, and Aikman and Eli exist around the fringes of true greatness, but winning multiple Super Bowls is a nearly guaranteed way to put yourself on the shortlist of all-time greats at the position. While Hall of Fame inductee and seven-time Pro Bowler Steve Young won a total of three Super Bowl rings, only one of those rings came with Young as the starting quarterback; he won the other two rings as fellow Hall-of-Famer Joe Montana’s backup.

  • Tom Brady (7 wins)
  • Joe Montana (4)
  • Terry Bradshaw (4)
  • Troy Aikman (3)
  • Peyton Manning (2)
  • Patrick Mahomes (2)
  • Eli Manning (2)
  • John Elway (2)
  • Phil Simms (2)
  • Jim McMahon (2)
  • Roger Staubach (2)
  • Ken Stabler (2)
  • Bob Griese (2)
  • Bart Starr (2)
  • Steve Young (3) (*1 as the starting QB)

Of the 14 men to win multiple Super Bowls, 9 are enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame—Starr, Griese, Stabler, Staubach, Bradshaw, Montana, Young, Aikman and Elway. Two more (Brady and Peyton Manning) are surefire first-ballot inductees when they finally become eligible. Eli Manning is far from a guaranteed induction thanks to a precipitous drop in play in the latter half of his career, but his two Super Bowl wins against Brady’s mighty Patriots ensure that he has a puncher’s chance. McMahon and Simms are conspicuous outliers, and Aikman and Eli exist around the fringes of true greatness, but winning multiple Super Bowls is a nearly guaranteed way to put yourself on the shortlist of all-time greats at the position. While Hall of Fame inductee and seven-time Pro Bowler Steve Young won a total of three Super Bowl rings, only one of those rings came with Young as the starting quarterback; he won the other two rings as fellow Hall-of-Famer Joe Montana’s backup.

Has Any Quarterback Won the Super Bowl with Different Teams?

Peyton Manning was the only player to start and win Super Bowls with two different teams, doing so with both the Colts (2007) and the Broncos (2016). After his second Super Bowl, he announced his retirement—a fitting end for possibly the best to ever play the position. However, Tom Brady joined Manning in yet another amazing NFL quarterback Super Bowl stat. After winning six with the Patriots, Tom Brady won a seventh but with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021. Despite a new team, Brady's Bucs became favorites and remain there.

A few other quarterbacks have come close. Craig Morton played in Super Bowls with both the Cowboys and Broncos but lost both. Kurt Warner came close, winning one Super Bowl with the Rams in 2000 and coming up just short with the Cardinals in 2009. Former MVP Earl Morall also lucked his way into this feat, winning as the backup quarterback to Johnny Unitas in Baltimore and Bob Griese in Miami. Current 49er and former Patriots backup Jimmy Garoppolo could put his name alongside Morall with a win this year. He won rings with the Patriots in 2015 and 2017.

How Many Quarterbacks Have Won the MVP and the Super Bowl in the Same Year?

Only seven quarterbacks in Super Bowl QB history have ever won both the NFL MVP award and a Super Bowl in the same season: Patrick Mahomes with the Kansas City Chiefs (2023), Aaron Rodgers with the Packers (2011), Kurt Warner with the Rams (1999), Brett Favre with the Packers (1996), Steve Young with the 49ers (1995), Joe Montana with the 49ers (1989), and Terry Bradshaw with the Steelers (1978). A total of 13 more quarterbacks have lost a combined 16 Super Bowls during MVP seasons.

Who Are The Youngest Quarterbacks To Win The Super Bowl?

Bovada Super Bowl BettingJust like there is an elite group of quarterbacks who have won a Super Bowl at an old age, there is another elite group of Super Bowl winning quarterbacks that have won a Super Bowl at a young age as well - more specifically, under the age of 25 years old. In the history of the NFL, there are just three quarterbacks that have won a Super Bowl under the age of 25. Of the three, Ben Roethlisberger is the youngest of the group, as he was just 23 years old at the time that he won his first Super Bowl. However, Patrick Mahomes (24) and Tom Brady (24) could have the boost, as they also won a Super Bowl MVP at the time, while Roethlisberger did not.

How Many Super Bowl Winning Quarterbacks Threw For 4 Or More Touchdowns?

Looking back on how many quarterbacks have thrown for more than four touchdowns and won the Super Bowl, the list is not as long as some might think. Only six quarterbacks have thrown for five or more touchdowns in the Super Bowl and won. Leading the way is Steve Young, who went for six touchdowns in Super Bowl 29 and led the 49ers to a 49-26 final score over the then San Diego Chargers. At the bottom of the list is a four-way tie of those who threw for four touchdowns in the Super Bowl. The most recent to do it is no other than Tom Brady, who went for four touchdowns in Super Bowl 49.

Quarterbacks To Win A Super Bowl Without A Passing Touchdown

When people think about Super Bowl winning quarterbacks, they usually think about those QB’s that go for multiple touchdowns and light up the scoreboard. However, there is a short list of quarterbacks that have gone on to win the Super Bowl despite not throwing a single touchdown. What is surprising about this stat, however, is not only that they were held to zero touchdowns in the game but six of the eight saw their teams put up more than 20 points. The first quarterback to not have a passing touchdown and win the Super Bowl was Joe Namath who went for just 206 yards. Namath is also the only quarterback on this list that actually won the Super Bowl MVP of the game as well.

SB40: Ben Roethlisberger 9 123 0 2
SB32: John Elway 12 123 0 1

Quarterbacks Who Won The Super Bowl Without Being Sacked

Taking a sack, especially in the Super Bowl, is something that would sting any quarterback, with that said, there are actually eight total quarterbacks in the history of Super Bowl QBs that have not taken a sack in the Super Bowl. However, it has occurred nine times, as John Elway won two Super Bowl without taking a sack. One thing to take into consideration when thinking about how these quarterbacks did not take a sack in the game could be the defenses that they went up against. Sticking with QB sacks in the Super Bowl, Super Bowl 58 QB betting odds also allow you to bet on the total sacks the QB will take in the game.
