The NFL Title Belt was inspired by a thread on Reddit.
When the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl I, they started the belt. The next team they lost to in the '67 season took the belt from them, and the next team that team lost to took it, and so on. The belt was not lost during ties, and if the team failed to make the playoffs but won their last few games since getting the belt, they keep the belt going in to next year.
- Every team has held the Title Belt at some point during their existence.
- The Title Belt is active any week where an NFL game is played, regardless if the current Title Belt holder plays. This means the current Title Belt holder can keep the Title Belt on a bye week, or during a playoff week when they are not playing or did not qualify. Bye weeks and weeks where the Title Belt holder is not qualified to play are indicated by a faded logo.
- The Title Belt is inactive any week where no NFL game is played. This means during the offseason or during a strike.
- Title Belt statistics stay with a franchise, regardless of location.
- The Arizona Cardinals were the St. Louis Cardinals prior to the 1988 season, and the Phoenix Cardinals from 1988 - 1993.
- The Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens are not the same franchise. The Cleveland Browns were active from 1967 - 1995, and again from 1999 - present. The Baltimore Ravens began play in 1996.
- The Indianapolis Colts were the Baltimore Colts prior to the 1984 season.
- The Los Angeles Chargers were the San Diego Chargers from 1961 - 2016.
- The Los Angeles Rams were the St. Louis Rams from 1995 - 2015.
- The Oakland Raiders were the Los Angeles Raiders from 1982 - 1994.
- The Tennessee Titans were the Houston Oilers prior to the 1997 season, and the Tennessee Oilers from 1998-1999.
