How I Met Your Mother - Monday Night Football (2007)

The Good Place - Team Cockroach (2017)
This episode isn't about the Super Bowl per-say, but it features this hilarious moment between Jason, a die-hard Jacksonville Jaguars fan, and Good Place creator Michael. Jason wants to know if his fave team and player, Blake Bortles, will ever win this (or any) Super Bowl. "I can't predict the future Jason, but no" Michael replies cackling. The series mentions the team on numerous, hilarious occasions. Adding salt to the wound, the Jags blew their first-ever opportunity to play in the Big Game to the New England Patriots just last week. In other words, The Good Place is a prophetic series that knew the Jags would choke... and Michael IS psychic.
Married With Children - Damn Bundy's (1997)
Al's makes a deal with Lucifer in exchange for a spot on the Chicago Bears. However, the deal only allowed him to lead the team to Super Bowl victory and when time's up, the Devil sends him to hell where he's forced to spend eternity with his now-dead family and the D'Arcy's. Let this be a lesson: nothing is worth a deal with the devil — not even a Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Family Guy - Death Has a Shadow (1999)
