New England Patriots

Former Patriots cornerback Brandon Browner pulled off a rare feat three years ago. He became just the fifth player in NFL history to win back-to-back Super Bowls with two different teams when he and the Patriots beat the Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX, one season after Browner won his first ring with Seattle in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Now, ex-Patriots LeGarrette Blount and Chris Long have a chance to do the same.

New England will find those familiar faces in Philadelphia Eagles jerseys when the teams square off in Super Bowl LII. If Blount, Long, and the Eagles can upset the favored Patriots, they’d become the sixth and seventh players in the Super Bowl era to win two straight for different franchises.

Besides Browner, only four other players have actually pulled this off, according to research by Football Perspective.

Back-To-Back Super Bowls With Two Different Teams: The List

— Defensive back Derrick Martin got a Super Bowl ring for both the 2010 Packers and 2011 Giants
— Guard Russ Hochstein got a ring for his brief time with the 2002 Buccaneers, then won with the 2003 Patriots
— Cornerback Deion Sanders won for the 1994 49ers and 1995 Cowboys
— Linebacker Ken Norton Jr. won for the 1993 Cowboys, and then for the 1994 49ers along with Sanders

It’s a rare accomplishment for sure, but also largely a matter of luck and circumstance. Still, that’s not to diminish the performance of Long and Blount in the Eagles’ NFC Championship win over the Minnesota Vikings. Long recovered a fumble in that game, while Blount rushed six times for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Patriots cornerback Eric Rowe is one ex-Eagle facing his former team. So is safety Patrick Chung, who played for the Eagles in 2013 before returning for his second stint with the Pats. But it’s Long and Blount who have a chance to really do something unique against their former team when they take the field in Minneapolis.
