This is a list of professional football champions per season as recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

The Green Bay Packers have won the most professional football championships with 13 (nine NFL Championships and four Super Bowls).

HistoryEdit

Throughout its history, the National Football League (NFL) and other leagues have used several different formats to determine their league champion, including a period of interleague match-ups determining a true world champion.

The NFL first determined champions through end-of-season standings from 1920-32, but switched over to a playoff system in 1933. The rival All-America Football Conference (AAFC) and American Football League (AFL), which have since merged with the NFL (three AAFC teams in 1950 and all ten AFL teams in 1970 respectively), began using the playoff system since the creation of their respective leagues.

From 1966–1969 prior to the AFL-NFL merger, the NFL and the AFL held a "World Championship" game. The game was first called the AFL-NFL World Championship Game later renamed the Super Bowl. The Green Bay Packers won the first two of these World Championship Games (Super Bowl I and II).

Since 1970, the modern era NFL has become the only major professional football league in the United States, and its current league championship game is called the Super Bowl. The Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most with six Super Bowl wins. However, the franchise trails the Packers in the number of overall NFL league titles with 13. The Packers defeated the Steelers 31-25 at Super Bowl XLV to win their most recent world championship.

Championships by franchiseEdit

These are the championships of professional American football leagues that are recognized by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and the National Football League (NFL) official record books.

After the 1970 AFL-NFL merger and the emergence of the Super Bowl, all AFL and NFL league championship games prior to merger are listed along with the AFC and NFC conference championship games, respectively, in the NFL's official records, but are recorded as league titles for each victorious franchise between 1920 and 1969. The Super Bowl victories for each franchise between 1966 and 1969 are looked upon as "World Championship titles" not league titles so they are not included in most NFL lists due to their short time span.
