The Patriots Are Always Doing The Most
The Patriots’ name pops up all over Super Bowl trivia, and they have a history deeply steeped in controversies that have stuck to their name like super glue regardless of their innocence or guilt. They’ve taken advantage of loopholes in the rulebook, made questionable plays that lead to rule changes, and found themselves in the middle of Spygate and Deflategate, but we’re bringing them up for another reason.
The New England Patriots hold records for doing the most. They hold the record for the most Super Bowl appearances, making it to the championship game 11 times. They’ve won six of those games, earning them a position alongside the Steelers for the most victories. Their five losses tied them with the Broncos for the most Super Bowl losses.
