Most of them. Out of 42 chances to defend their title, only 8 teams did and only 3 teams tried and failed. Although the Packers, Dolphins, 49'ers, Cowboys, Broncos, Patriots and Steelers (twice) had consecutive victories, none even got a chance for a third. Only 3 times did a team win one Super Bowl, then lose the next one. * The Dallas Cowboys won Super Bowl XII, then lost Super Bowl XIII * The Washington Redskins won Super Bowl XVII, then lost Super Bowl XVIII * The Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl XXXI, then lost Super Bowl XXXII Only twice did the loser of a Super Bowl win the following year, and they were consecutive : * Dallas Cowboys lost Super Bowl V to the Colts, won Super Bowl VI over the Dolphins * Miami Dolphins lost Super Bowl VI to the Cowboys, won Super Bowls VII and VIII (see related question for all winners to date)
Through Super Bowl XLIII, that has happened three times: 1) The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII and lost Super Bowl XIII to the Pittsbugh Steelers.
2) The Washington Redskins defeated the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XVII and lost Super Bowl XVIII to the Los Angeles Raiders.
3) The Green Bay Packers defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI and lost Super Bowl XXXII to the Denver Broncos.

1999 - Broncos and Falcons were in Super Bowl XXXIII (1998), both teams failed to qualify for the playoffs in 1999.

The Cleveland Browns have not won a Super Bowl or even been to a Super Bowl. Have not even been the AFC champions.
All teams that have won the Super Bowl have become world champions. Since the 1970 merger of the National Football League and the American Football League, the Super Bowl winners have been considered NFL champions.
I'm pretty sure its both. I've heard them call it world champions and super bowl champions on sportscenter but i couldn't figure out which one it was. But i just call it super bowl champs but.... i have heard it on sportcenter called world champions.
The Indianapolis Colts.
