    Other than the Patriots, there is only one other AFC team in the post-merger era that has been undefeated in AFC Championship games. Can you name the team without looking it up, and how many they have won.

    For a bonus, there is one team in the NFC that has done the same. Who and how many wins? (I'm not counting Seattle, which is 1-0 in the NFC championship game, but lost its other championship game appearance in the AFC.)


    Edit: I suppose there actually are two others in the AFC, since the Ravens are a new franchise, so I should have counted them, since they are 1-0. So there are 3 AFC teams that have done it. The Pats, the Ravens, and who?

    Right -- Bengals are 2-0. We're 5-0. The other best records would be the Bills at 4-1, Denver at 6-2, Miami at 5-2 (I think?), and the Steelers who have played in far and away the most and are something like 6-6.

    If the Patriots can find a way to eek out a win and go 6-0 in championship games, I think it would be a pretty amazing accomplishment, although I'd put it second behind the Steelers' superbowl record of 5-1, which is pretty amazing.

    Pittsburgh, Dallas, and Denver, I think.

    SF49ers.....................
    4 with Montana 1 with Young

    3 with Walsh 2 with Seifert. the cast changed from 81 to 84 big time, except the QB and Coach, sorta like another team I know.

    ANd they won 4 of them in in 8 or 9 years with the Young one coming almost 11 after the first. Not a bad stretch but I'm being greedy and looking to top it.

    I always thought we were 5-0 in AFC Championship games but this morning I saw 5-1 . I'm assuming if this was correct it was way before my time. Anyone know when and who we lost to from the post merger days?

    It's 5-0. If somebody said it was 5-1, they are wrong.

    I wonder if they are considering AFL championships as well as AFC and throw a loss to SD back in the early 60's.........

    Booo! Throw the flag if that's where the loss is being counted.
