THE UN­LUCKY NUM­BER

Inside Sport - - THE NUMBERS -

The NFL prides it­self on par­ity (our codes are sim­i­larly de­voted). Yet 13 of the league’s 32 fran­chises, or 40 per­cent, have never won the Su­per Bowl. Of that 13, an­other four have never even played in one. While the NFL does ex­hibit some turnover in suc­cess­ful teams, it’s worth not­ing that only 12 teams make it to the post­sea­son ev­ery year, com­pared to eight of 18 in the AFL and eight of 16 in the NRL.
