Lucky Number 12: Nearly One Third of Super Bowl Champion QBs Have Worn the Magic Number

Super Bowl LVII is quickly approaching, with the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Philadelphia Eagles today at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

While neither squad sports a starting signal caller wearing a No. 12 jersey, NFL teams that have had one with 12 on his back have won the Super Bowl almost one third of the times.

Tom Brady has captured six titles with the New Egland Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Terry Bradshaw has claimed four championships with the Pittsburgh Steelers, Roger Staubach earned two with the Dallas Cowboys and Bob Griese picked up two with the Miami Dolphins, all while donning the No. 12 jersey.

The New York Jets’ Joe Namath, the Oakland Raiders’ Ken Stabler and the Green Bay Packers’ Aaron Rodgers round out the No. 12 success rate with one Super Bowl victory each. (A Season in the Sun: Bruce Arians, Tom Brady, and the Inside Story of the Making of a Champion Kindle Edition).
