Which NFL team has the most championship rings including conference championships and super bowls?

Since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970, that would be the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers with 13 each. The Cowboys have won 8 NFC championships and 5 Super Bowls and the Steelers have won 7 AFC championships and 6 Super Bowls. --------------------------------------------------- If you are talking about rings, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Dallas Cowboys are indeed tied, but the record is 8 rings. Pittsburgh: six Super Bowl rings, 2 AFC rings. Dallas: five Super Bowl rings, 3 NFC rings. 13 would be the answer if you were talking about just titles, not the rings themselves.

I'm not sure how decisions are made as to which conference new expansion teams are placed in. i belive the league just comes up with it I know it has nothing to do with location.
