Bill Belichick, Tom Landry and NFL Head Coaches with the Most Postseason Wins

Most Postseason Wins For An NFL Head Coach: Tom Landry And Bill Belichick (For Now)

Most Postseason Wins For An NFL Head Coach: Tom Landry And Bill Belichick (For Now)

What a game today between the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens! Wow.

And wow for Bill Belichick. He’s now officially tied with Dallas Cowboys legend Tom Landry with the most postseason wins for an NFL head coach, a sleek 20.

And Belichick isn’t done this season or certainly (has to be) next season. No one has any idea how long, though – his contract is shrouded in mystery! This guy.

Don Shula is real close with 19 playoff wins.

The loser today, John Harbaugh, does make the top 20. Harbaugh has won a mightily impressive 10 playoff games out of 15 in a relatively short time at the helm.

New York Giants head coach Tom Coughlin and Kansas City Chiefs skipper Andy Reid are the other actives.

Five of those six coaches mentioned have won Super Bowls – as did most below. Only Reid, Marv Levy, Dan Reeves and Bud Grant did not (but they did all make it to the Big Game).
