With seven Super Bowl wins, Tom Brady is the all-time winningest quarterback in Super Bowl history. His seven Super Bowls are also higher than any franchise's win count, and he has won more rings than 17 NFL franchises combined. Tom Brady is also one of the two quarterbacks, along with Peyton Manning, to have won a Super Bowl with two different franchises. He won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Joe Montana is tied for the second-most Super Bowl wins among quarterbacks, with four. Before Tom Brady started breaking NFL records, Joe Montana was the winningest quarterback in the Super Bowl. The Notre Dame graduate led a legendary 49ers team to four Super Bowls in eight years from 1981 to 1989, winning in all of their appearances. Joe Montana topped off three of those Super Bowls with the Super Bowl MVP Award.
With four Super Bowl titles, Pittsburgh Steelers legend Terry Bradshaw is tied as the second-winningest quarterback in Super Bowl history. He is tied with Joe Montana as the only quarterback to have played in at least four Super Bowls without losing one. Drafted in 1970, Bradshaw took a Steelers team that had never made it to the Super Bowl to legendary status, bringing four Lombardi Trophies to Pennsylvania in six seasons. Furthermore, Bradshaw won two of his four Super Bowls against the Dallas Cowboys, establishing one of the fiercest rivalries in the league.
Troy Aikman’s three Super Bowl wins make him the fourth-winningest quarterback in the Super Bowl. Aikman wrote his name in NFL history after he brought a Super Bowl title back to Dallas in 1992 following a 15-year drought. The UCLA legend played in and won three Super Bowls, leading a legendary offense with Emmitt Smith at running back and Michael Irvin at wide receiver. His wins came against the Bills in 1992 and 1993 and against the franchise’s biggest rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers, in 1995.
