    Since the merger of the AFL and NFL, how many teams went to more than 3 superbowls in a 10 year span and who were they?

    How many teams went to 3 or more consecutive superbowls in a 10 year span and who were they?

    since 1970, these teams have gone to more than three SB in a 10 year span since merger (6)

    Dallas, 1970-1978 (70,71,75,77,78)
    Pittsburgh, 1974-1979 (74,75,78,79)
    Washington 1982-1991 (82,83,87,91)
    San Francisco 1981-1989 (81,84,88,89)
    Buffalo 1990-1993 (90,91,92,93)
    New England 1996-2004 (96,01,03,04)

    I think that`s all of them. I wouldn`t consider Buffalo a dinasty (no titles) but you just said teams that WENT to the SB. the 90`s cowboys are considered a dinasty, but they only went to three SBs

    as for the second question, only two teams have gone to three or more straight SBs and those are Miami, 1971-1973 and Buffalo, 1990-1993.

    how is buffalo not a dynasty? no other team has done (or in all liklihood will do) what they did.

    I find it odd that you consider the Pats 10 year dynasty from 96-04 instead of 01-07.

    No doubt is it impressive, but they were never the best and I think that is very important when considering dynasties.

    The Vikings went to four Super Bowls in the 70s.

    69-70 vs. KC (Super Bowl IV)
    73-74 vs. MIA (Super Bowl VIII)
    74-75 vs. PIT (Super Bowl IX)
    76-77 vs. OAK (Super Bowl XI)

    Going to 3 SBs in a 10 year span is not a dynasty.

    71, lost to Dallas
    72, beat the Redskins
    73, beat the Vikings

    Well essentially you've got the years right since the Super Bowl is played at the beginning of the new year, but we played the Redskins in Super Bowl VII and the Vikings in VIII.

    What? Lose FOUR Super Bowls in a row? You're right. That will probably NEVER be done again.

    because many believe the steelers with their "steel curtain" defense were the dynasty of the 70s.

    realize this is a bit of a thread necro, but i thought it was a cool topic, so, my 2 cents.....

    the definitive list (as far as I can tell) of teams who have made it to 3 Super Bowls in any given ten year span:

    Buffalo Bills XXV, XXVI, XXVII, XXVIII

    Dallas Cowboys (Twice) V, VI, X, XII, XIII;XXVII, XXVIII, XXX

    Denver Broncos (Twice) XXI, XXII, XXIV, XXXII, XXXIII;

    Miami Dolphins VI, VII, VIII

    Minnesota Vikings IV, VIII, IX, XI,

    New England Patriots XXXVI, XXXVIII, XXXIX, XLII, XLVI

    Pittsburgh Steelers (Twice) IX, X, XIII, XIV; XL, XLIII, XLV

    San Francisco 49ers XVI, XIX, XXIII, XXIV

    Washington Redskins XVII, XVIII, XXII, XXVI,


    Obviously, not all of these teams are considered dynastys. For me the dynasty's in the NFL have been the following teams:

    Pittsburgh Steelers 70's
    San Francisco 49ers 80's
    Dallas Cowboys 90's
    New England Patriots 00's

    I wouldn't consider the Bills a dynasty....coming close doesn't make you a dynasty. I doubt any team will ever again go to four straight SB's, but they lost each time they got to the Big Game. I was born in 1966, same year the Superbowl started and to me the dynasties have been -

    1960's - Green Bay
    1970's - Miami, Pittsburgh
    1980's - 49ers
    1990's - Cowboys
    2000's - New England

    What Miami did was great but how do you have co-dynasties when one won 4 SBs and the other 2? The dynasty of the 70s was Pittsburgh w/o a doubt- it's not really debateable.

    Miami has never been a dynasty. Period.

    The Hurricanes were the only dynasty the city ever saw.

    I don't know I mean is a dynasty a decade?

    Why can't there be two (or three) dynasty's in a decade?

    Why cant the Steelers encompass 74-80 but the Dolphins encompass 70-74? The Dolphins 3 straight Super Bowl appearances had never been done and their win loss record at that time was unreal. Let alone the talent level of the 72 and 73 teams. Griese, Langer, Csonka, Morris, Kiick, Warfield, Little, Anderson, Scott, Buoniconti, Fernandez - THOSE were great teams, and as great as any other dynastic team.

    Granted I'd say yeah absolutely the Steelers WERE the team of the 70's, and infact the Dolphins probably ranked behind the Cowboys in that category also (5 SB appearances).

    Well, I thank the WFL for Miami not doing more in the 70's, after losing Csonka, Kiick, and Warfield to the Memphis Southmen. I watch the 1974 "sea of hands" game but try to blank it from my mind. Especially after Oakland only manged 29 rushing yards against the Steelers. I really would have liked to seen the Steelers limit Csonka, Kick and Morris to 29 yards.

    A very good point Robert. The Dolphins who won the '73 Superbowl were relatively young. Had the WFL not come along and offered our stars money they could not refuse, we may have gone to and won a few more Superbowls with that dynasty.
