Championship Rating equals Super Bowl Victories + 0.5 x Super Bowl Losses + 0.25 x Conference Championship Losses
Championship Rating ties are broken by number of Super Bowl victories, then by number of Super Bowl appearances, then age of team.
Super Bowl Record is ranked by win/loss differential, ties are broken by win percentage, then by Championship Rating.
Super Bowl Victories ties are broken by number of Super Bowl appearances, then by Championship Rating.
Note that pre-Super Bowl championship games are only worth 0.5 for a victory and 0.25 for a defeat.

The Elite
The Steelers, Cowboys, Patriots, 49ers, and Packers. All have 4+ Super Bowl victories, winning records in the Super Bowl, and Super Bowl appearances over 20 years apart. The Cowboys have seen the least success recently, and the 49ers are looking down after their recent implosion. The Patriots are the dominant team of the 21st century, while the Packers have seen three separate major peaks. The Steelers are just always good and often great, with twice as many Super Bowl victories as they have had head coaches during my lifetime.

The Champions
The Raiders, Broncos, Giants, Colts, Redskins, and Dolphins. All have multiple Super Bowl victories, 4+ Super Bowl appearances, and Super Bowl appearances over 10 years apart. The Redskins and Dolphins have fallen on hard times in the 21st century, while the others have all had their moments, adding to the legacies they built decades ago. Legendary head coaches, hall-of-fame QBs, impenetrable defenses, and unstoppable offenses are common in these team's histories, even without the sustained success of the Elite. The Dolphins are still the only undefeated Super Bowl champions, though.

The Fallen Legends
The Rams, Bills, Vikings, Bears, Chargers, and Browns. All have at least been to a Super Bowl or won a pre-Super Bowl championship, but none have won a Super Bowl in the 21st century. The Rams at least made it to one, but the promise of the early 2000s has faded to their current low of leaving the city they won their only Super Bowl for. The Bills and Vikings each went to four Super Bowls in a short period of time, but could never win even one. The Bears had arguably the greatest team in NFL history in 1985, but only one Super Bowl appearance after that. The Chargers have had teams with dominant offenses in both the 20th and 21st centuries, but their lack of an equivalent defense has limited them to single Super Bowl appearance. And then there are the hapless Browns, who at their last peak had their hearts ripped out by Elway's Broncos, and whose pre-Super Bowl greatness is just a faded dream.

Good But Not Great
The Ravens, Eagles, and Seahawks. All have multiple Super Bowl appearances, and have had some sustained success over at least a decade. The Ravens made the most of their two Super Bowl appearances, winning both, and are easily the most successful of the younger teams. The Eagles haven't won a Super Bowl, but have had excellent teams in multiple eras. The Seahawks are two plays away from three Super Bowl victories and appear set to contend for more.

Gloriously Flawed
The Jets, Oilers/Texans, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Falcons, Panthers, and Saints. These teams have all had moments of glory, even though they are all flawed franchises that seem doomed to never have sustained success. The Jets had their epic Super Bowl upset, but nothing more. The Oilers/Texans had Warren Moon and Earl Campbell, but could never make it to the Super Bowl (partly because they were on the losing end of the largest comeback in NFL history). The Chiefs won a Super Bowl long ago, but have also had team after team with great records flame out in the playoffs. The Buccaneers rode a dominant defense to victory in their single Super Bowl, but that remains their only claim to fame. The Falcons have been to two Super Bowls, but have had little success otherwise, and lost a Super Bowl that they had a 99% chance of winning in the second half. The Panthers got to a Super Bowl surprisingly early in their existence, but ran into Brady's Patriots and then could not handle an unblockable Von Miller against the Broncos a decade later. The Saints have mainly been known for hosting Super Bowls in their stadium, not playing in them, but with New Orleans still recovering from hurricane Katrina, a magical season brought them a championship in their only Super Bowl appearance.

Dreaming of Glory
The Bengals, Lions, Cardinals, Titans, and Jaguars. These teams have never had much success. Even the Bengals, with their two Super Bowl appearances, feel like they were just the foils whose role was to highlight Montana's greatness. The Lions had Barry Sanders and Megatron, but never even felt like contenders. The Cardinals lost a Super Bowl once, but rarely make the playoffs, let alone have success in them. The Titans had their one moment, but came up a yard short and faded away. The Jaguars are a forgotten team, struggling to just be relevant, the least successful team in NFL history.
