How many Super Bowls has Pittsburgh lost?

The Steelers have competed in and won six Super Bowls, including four in the last six years, and lost two.

It’s not simple to win the Super Bowl. There is a 16-game regular season plus a 4-game preseason before a team has a chance to make the playoffs if they are lucky or good enough.

The National Football League’s postseason begins with the wild-card round and continues through the divisional round, the conference championships, and, ultimately, the Super Bowl.



Between the months of August and February, a lot of things can occur. Key player injuries, locker room conflict, and coaching staff changes can all add extra stress to an already demanding season.

Each player must be physically and mentally spent by the time the Super Bowl rolls around. The two remaining squads are barely hanging together thanks to nothing more than sheer determination and some trainer’s tape.
