The New England Patriots
Tom Brady is an American football quarterback for the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). He is one of only two players to win five Super Bowls (the other being defensive end Charles Haley), and he is the only player to win them all playing for one team. Brady has also been selected to 14 Pro Bowls, more than any other quarterback in NFL history.
Bill Belichick is an American football head coach who is currently the head coach of the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). He is widely considered to be one of the greatest coaches in NFL history.
The Pittsburgh Steelers
At 6’5” and 240 pounds, few quarterbacks in the NFL can match Ben Roethlisberger’s size. That size, along with his strong arm, makes him a difficult quarterback to sack. In fact, Roethlisberger has been sacked an average of just 2.36 times per game over his career, which is the best mark in NFL history.
Mike Tomlin is the current head coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is the 19th head coach in franchise history, and has led the team to a Super Bowl victory and six playoff appearances since he took over in 2007. Tomlin is also one of only four African American head coaches currently in the NFL.
The Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league’s National Football Conference North division. They are also the third-oldest franchise in the NFL, dating back to 1919, and are the only non-profit, community-owned major league professional sports team in the United States.
Aaron Rodgers is an American football quarterback for the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the California Golden Bears, and was drafted by the Packers in the first round of the 2005 NFL Draft. Rodgers led the Packers to a Super Bowl title in 2010. He was named the Super Bowl MVP that year, and has been selected to seven Pro Bowls.
Mike McCarthy is the head coach of the Green Bay Packers. He has been the head coach since 2006, and has led the team to nine playoff appearances, including six consecutive appearances from 2009-2014. He has also led the team to four NFC Championship games, and one Super Bowl win in 2010.
The Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team that competes in the National Football League (NFL). They are a member club of the league’s National Football Conference (NFC) East division. The Cowboys were founded in 1960 as an expansion team.

Dak Prescott is an American football quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys of the National Football League (NFL). He played college football at Mississippi State University. As a senior in 2015, he was unanimously selected as the SEC Offensive Player of the Year. In the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Prescott was chosen by the Cowboys with the 135th overall pick. He became Dallas’ starting quarterback during his rookie season after Tony Romo was injured and led the team to an NFC-best 13–3 record. For his performances, he was named Offensive Rookie of the Year by the AP, and was also named to the PFWA All-Rookie Team.
Jason Garrett is the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys. He is a former professional American football quarterback who played for four teams in the National Football League (NFL). Garrett was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and attended Princeton University, where he was a member of the university’s football team. There, he set several school passing records and won the Asa S. Bushnell Cup as Ivy League Player of the Year. After being undrafted in the 1993 NFL Draft, Garrett spent two seasons as a member of the New Orleans Saints before being released. He also spent time with the San Antonio Riders of the World League of American Football (WLAF) and the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League (CFL).
