NFC Championship Game W-L Records of Every Team

Hakeem Nicks Celebrates The New York Giants' Fifth NFC Championship Game Win (To Zero Losses)

Hakeem Nicks Celebrates The New York Giants’ Fifth NFC Championship Game Win (To Zero Losses) In 2011

Time for part two of Sports List of the Day‘s look at the NFL‘s Conference Championship Games and every team’s W-L records. Yesterday, we saw that the Pittsburgh Steelers led the AFC with eight wins.

The same goes for their NFC all-time nemeses, the Dallas Cowboys. The ‘Boys have eight NFC titles of their own.

Neither, though, will be going for their ninth in 2014, having both been bounced from the postseason.

How about W-L percentage?

The Cincinnati Bengals are 2-0, the only undefeated AFC team. The NFC has three undefeateds, including the Seattle Seahawks, who have a real shot at going to 3-0.

And how about the New York Giants? Wow: 5-0 in the big game before the Big Game. Nobody tops that record, NFC or AFC.

UPDATED LIST: Through the 2014 NFC Conference Championship (played on Jan. 18, 2015), adding another win to the now 3-0 Seattle Seahawks and dropping the Green Bay Packers to .500 (3-3).

AFC Championship Game W-L Records of Every Team

Tom Brady And Bill Belichick Have Nine AFC Conference Championship Game Appearances

Tom Brady And Bill Belichick Have Nine AFC Conference Championship Game Appearances

The New England Patriots, once an AFC franchise frequently mired in seasons-long slumps, could reign supreme (or tied, really), if they take this Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Since the Bill BelichickTom Brady combo took over in 2001, the Pats have gone to the AFC Championship Game a crazy eight times for a record of 5-3. Folks, this is their ninth together. Not even Chuck Noll and Terry Bradshaw can claim that (they had six), and only three whole franchise histories have more.

Overall, New England is 7-3 in the Conference Championship in 44 seasons.

One more win and it’s eight AFC titles, to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers.

UPDATED LIST: Through the 2014 AFC Conference Championship (played on Jan. 18, 2015). The New England Patriots have now tied the Pittsburgh Steelers with the most AFC titles, eight. The Pats’ W-L PCT is a stellar .727. They are arguably the best performing team in AFC Conference Championship history. But the Denver Broncos are not far behind.
