Which NFL Quarterback Has Been to the Most Super Bowls?


Quarterbacks might be judged by Super Bowl victories more than anything else. Reaching multiple Super Bowls—and ideally winning at least one—is the type of feat that earns you a place in football lore. 

Twenty quarterbacks have made multiple Super Bowl appearances, including two quarterbacks in this year's playoffs: Tom Brady (9) and Russell Wilson (2). Brady's nine appearances are the most ever by a quarterback and the most all time by any player.
