The NFL title belt is a fan-created trophy that is an awesome alternative to the traditional honors that the NFL has to offer. And a new way (on top of wearing their colors) to support your team.
The idea is that a fictional title belt was awarded to the Packers after they won Super Bowl I, and after that, pro wrestling rules were in effect. You would hold the belt until another team defeated you, and they would take the title.
If you won the belt at the end of the season, but didn’t make the playoffs, you would own the belt until the following season. You would also maintain it throughout your bye week or if you were involved in a tie.
The belt has been tracked through 940 weeks and every team has held it at some point.
The Broncos and Packers have held it the longest. The Broncos from their 1997 Super Bowl win until week 14 of the following year and the Packers from the 2010 Super Bowl until the following week 14. The Raiders have captured it the most times, at 22, and the Patriots have held it for the most total weeks, at 70.
The current holder of the belt is the Seattle Seahawks, who took it off of the Arizona Cardinals last week, and they’ll put it on the line against the Rams this week. You’ll find everything you could possibly want to know about the NFL title belt RIGHT HERE.
