Notes
  • BOLD indicates game won
  • Starr was also 3–1 in NFL Championship games (1960, 1961,1962, 1965) before the NFL and AFL met in the first Super Bowl.
  • Dawson was also 1–0 in AFL Championship games (1962) before the NFL and AFL met in the first Super Bowl.
  • There have also been three instances of quarterbacks facing off multiple times in the Super Bowl. Staubach and Bradshaw, Aikman and Kelly, and Brady and Eli Manning all faced each other twice. In each case the same quarterback (Bradshaw, Aikman and Manning) won both matchups.[21]
