Trivia of the Day – Saturday, November 3rd

.

Philip Rivers not pictured.

On Sunday, Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger will meet for the first time since Manning picked up his second Super Bowl ring. The game will be the 9th such matchup between two teams whose starting quarterbacks have each won multiple Super Bowls as starters.

This is the third straight year where we have such a game on the heels of a 25-year drought. In each of the last two seasons, the Steelers and Patriots have played, with Roethlisberger and Tom Brady starting both games. But prior to 2010, the last NFL matchup between two starting quarterbacks with multiple rings was in 1985, featuring the San Francisco 49ers (Joe Montana) and the Los Angeles Raiders (Jim Plunkett).

But today’s trivia question wants to know: which two quarterbacks starred in the first NFL game between two quarterbacks with multiple Super Bowl rings?

    I think this was the first trivia question I managed to get right; it’s easy once you start listing out the Super Bowl winners. Bart Starr won it in ’67-8, but there wouldn’t be another two-time winner until 1973, and the Packers wouldn’t have played the AFL in the regular season before the merger.
