Tuesday Night Trivia O/T: Who was the first post-merger expansion team to make the Super Bowl?

 24 replies

Arrowhead Guys talk about anything.

Unlike other leagues, virtually every team is technically an expansion team. Only 2 modern teams were a part of the NFL’s inaugural 1920 season (which would make another good trivia question now that I think about it), so talking about expansion teams in general isn’t interesting.

But what about post-merger expansion teams? Of the NFL’s current 32 teams, 26 were around in the first post-merger season in 1970. But of those 6 who were born after 1970, which was the first to reach a Super Bowl?

Is that just today or has it been under maintenance for a while? There hasn’t been a new Fanpost in 4 months and I don’t see a way to post a new one.

That’s the usual process, BTW. Not the best system, but we’re still kinda running on bubble gum and baling wire in these here parts. Especially right now.

You can see the stars but still not see the light.

I got the answer but it’s none of your business
Considering both the Bucs and the Seahawks joined in 76, that is a LONG time for the expansion teams to not make it to the Super Bowl. Then the Seahawks make it 3 years later. And then the Ravens make it twice in the next decade. The Jaguars and the Titans are the only ones to not make it to the Super Bowl. Though they have made it to the AFC Championship recently.

Titans made it in 99, famously fell 1 yard shy of winning it
