New York Giants and Super Bowl Champions that Failed to Make the Playoffs Following Season
Oddly, three out of the four times Big Blue won it all, they were a no-show the following year.
The Pittsburgh Steelers, also, dropped the postseason ball three times after being crowned.
In sum, 14 of the 46 Super Bowl champs didn’t follow it up with a playoff appearance. That’s 30 percent of the time.Follow @VinGetz
