The Baltimore Ravens enter the 2013 season with a big fat target on their back signifying the champions from last season. What do the Ravens and their fans have to look forward to after another Super Bowl? Here’s a look at how the previous 46 Super Bowl champions did the season following their title.
1. Only seven Super Bowl champs increased their win total the following year after their Super Bowl win. (The New York Giants won the title from the 2011 season. They won nine games that year; they also won nine games in 2012.) Six teams had the same number of wins as their Super Bowl winning season. That means that 72 percent of the Super Bowl champions had fewer wins in the regular season the year after their Super Bowl win. Last Time: The last time a Super Bowl champ did not increase (or tie) their win total after a Super Bowl title was in 2011 when the Super Bowl champion New York Giants saw their win total stay the same from nine wins in 2011 to nine wins in 2012.
