In the Sport of Kings, horses often experience sharp declines in performance after a career-best race.

They call it the Bounce Factor, and the theory applies just as well to Super Bowl champions.

For a variety of reasons, NFL teams rarely duplicate championship performances the season after they hoist the Lombardi Trophy. More often, there’s a significant drop in performance the next season, especially when the Super Bowl season tends to be an outlier.
