NFL Championship: All You Need To Know

Regarded as the highlight of the sporting calendar in the United States, it does not get any bigger than the NFL Championship game.

Here’s a look at everything you need to know about the spectacle that is known as 'The Greatest Show on Turf':

How long does the NFL Championship game last?

The game typically lasts between three to four hours, including the analysis shows before and after the game, as well as the main event itself. 

A regulation NFL game consists of four 15-minute quarters, although due to breaks in between plays and time outs, each quarter usually far exceeds 15 minutes.

After the game's first two quarters, there is also a 12-minute intermission. However, in NFL Championship games the break is longer to allow for the halftime show.

Who won the last NFL Championship?

The Kansas City Chiefs produced an exhilarating second half comeback to overcome Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 in the 2023 Championship game in Arizona. 

Patrick Mahomes claimed the MVP award as he helped turn the game on its head and secure the Chiefs a third world title.

Who has won the most NFL Championships?

The New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers are tied for the record of the most NFL Championship wins. Both franchises have been crowned world champions on six occasions in their histories. 

Which player has won the most NFL Championships?

Legendary quarterback Tom Brady is the player to have won the most world titles with seven rings in his possession.

Brady managed to bring six titles to the Patriots during his time in Boston, while he proved he could achieve the feat away from “Title Town” by guiding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to glory in 2020.

How much is an NFL Championship ring worth?

While the exact cost of each world title ring is unknown, the NFL typically contributes between $5,000 and $7,000 per ring for up to 150 rings per team.

However, the value of the rings after they have been awarded can be much greater than this. For example, the rings of 2015 victors New England Patriots were reportedly worth $36,500 each, while owner of the New England Patriots, Robert Kraft, sold his ring for just over $1 million.
