For the 18th straight season, the NFL will not have a repeat Super Bowl champion. Since the New England Patriots won back-to-back titles after the 2003 and 2004 seasons, only three teams have won multiple times. The Pats alternated with wins in Super Bowls 49, 51 and 53; the Pittsburgh Steelers prevailed in Super Bowl 40 and 43; and the New York Giants won Super Bowls 42 and 46.
