The Top Ten

1985 Chicago Bears
The one loss that year was to the Dolphins and the delusional boaster, Don Shula, who always fails to point out that the Bears were without their starting QB, Jimmy Mac. From 1984-86 the Bears were 35-3 when Mac played. Name one QB in history with a 38 game streak near that. One may also, and rightly so, say that the stubborn Buddy Ryan single handedly lost that game when he failed to admit making a major mistake by covering the slot back and 4th WR Nat Moore with LB Marshall all game. Hey Shula, if you guys were so great that year how come the wildcard Pats destroyed you in Miami in the A.F.C. championship game 31-14? Had the Bears not fumbled on their first possession, New England actually led 3-0 in that S.B. , and had they not put their second and third stingers in for most of the 4th quarter, the final score could easily have been 53, or 60-0. As it was they still set the record for most points scored, the biggest margin of victory, and 3 defensive yardage and sack records that may never be broken (-18 yards from scrimmage in the first half, a total of 123 total yards given up for the game, and 9 sacks, I think the 9 sacks may have been equaled since then). Like I said, they're the last team to go 18-1 and win the S.B. , ( the only other team to equal that is the '84, 49'ers, whom the Bears routed in '85, 26-10 ). The Bears are the last team to shut their opponents out on their way to the S.B. , and outscoring their opponents 91-10 for the playoffs. That an average of 30.3 to 3.3. I doubt any team will come close to that in the next 25 years, if ever. Think about that Donnie.
72 Dolphins had an easy schedule. Only two of the teams they played during the regular season ended up with a winning record, and their opponents had an aggregate win percentage below 40%.

In 86, passing teams were able to beat the 85 Bears, but we're not talking about the 86 Bears. In 86, the Bears' had a new defensive coordinator after Buddy Ryan left, so it's rather hard to draw comparisons between the two seasons with regard to defensive prowess.

The 72 Dolphins failed to win in the playoffs by more than 7 points in any game, whereas the Bears beat their opposition in the playoffs by an average of 27 points. Marino was able to help the Dolphins win in 85 because Marino had a legendarily quick release, so he was able to stay in the pocket longer than other quarterbacks, on top of the fact that McMahon was hurt. The only thing keeping the 85 Bears from winning NFL defensive player, offensive player, AND coach of the year was Marcus Allen's career year for the Raiders, which left Walter Payton with the NFC offensive player of the year award instead.

Plain and simply, the 85 Bears dominated strong opposition in a way not seen before or since, and in a way that is unlikely to reoccur anytime soon.
Just to prove how amazing we were I'll name off the bears that made the hall of fame or that should of been there: Walter Payton, Dan Hampton, Wilber Marshall, William Perry, Mike singletary and just about everyone on the 1985 Chicago bears team because everyone pitched in.

21972 Miami Dolphins
17-0 says it all! Not only that but this is also the only team that had the #1 offense AND #1 defense. This team scored more points than any other team that year and ALSO allowed the fewest points that season. Only team in NFL history to do this.

People also get confused when they say that this team played close games. In their 14 regualr season games, they won 11 of them by more than 8 points.

As for the playoff games, Dolphins were not on their game against Browns or Steelers, yet they managed to beat Browns when other great teams lose.

1985 Bears were not on their game against 1985 Dolphins and Dolphins destroyed them 38-24. I could say the same thing about each of the other great teams on this list.

Let me also say that Dolphins were not on their game against Steelers and won 21-17 AT Pittsburgh. This is the same Pittsburgh team that would go on to win 4 Super Bowl titles, yet the Dolphins were not on their game, were at Pittsburgh and still won 21-17.

Let me also add one other thing. People like to talk about a soft schedule, and I do agree with this. However, the schedule is not as soft as most people suggest. The fact that Miami beat EVERY team on its schedule, made their opponents look worse than they really were. For instance, the Jets were 7-7, but without playing Miami, they were 7-5 and a good team.

A team's strength of schedule should be measured against all other opposition. In other words, 17 losses and 0 WINS should be backed out of Miami's strength of schedule.

I will admit when you do this, Miami's strength of schedule is still weak, but not NEARLY as weak as some people would have you believe.

I also think that Miami's dominance on both sides of the ball, outweigh the weak strength of schedule.

Miami beat a great Pittsburgh team at Pittsburgh (This team went on to win 4 Super Bowls. ) Miami also beat a great Washington team in the Super Bowl 14-7.

Two things must be said about this 14-7 victory:

1) This was perhaps the most dominating 7 point victory in NFL history. Washington could not score on offense and needed a blocked field goal and return to score. Final score should have been 14-0. This would also be the only shutout in Super Bowl history.

2) This is the same Washington team that destroyed the defending Super Bowl champion Dallas Cowboys (A very good team again that season) 26-3 in the NFC championship game.
VeryThis was probably the smartest team in NFL history. A team that did not many mistakes.
This team did so many things that no other team before them or after them has done and it all starts with going undefeated and untied. Make Until another NFL team can do that, 1972 Dolphins have to be #1.
The 85 Bears weren't bad, but no they were not the best team. Why? Because the 1972 Miami Dolphins were so good they could win 11 straight games w/ their backup Quarterback! The 1985 Bears couldn't beat the 1985 Dolphins with their backup just playing one half! PLUS, Shula was smart enough to figure out how to beat the Bears. Gee they try to rush everybody and their mama, so throw the quick pass. 31-0 was the Shula versus the 1985 Bears score in the first half! Yes the Bears creamed a lot of teams they played, they were all running teams and New England had a rookie QB who just choked in the Super-Bowl. ( He beat them the next year! ) The 86' Bears got beat by passing teams like Elway's Bronco's and never made it back to the Super Bowl, cause a great coach, Don Shula, gave everybody the blueprint on how you beat them... He beat Buddy Ryan's Eagles w/ his 3rd string QB at Philadelphia for his NFL record setting win! The 71', 72' and 73' Dolphins all made it to the Big Dance. The 72 team was perfect and beat lots of teams that won or got to the Super Bowl. KC Chiefs 68, NY Jets 69< twice, Unitas Colts 69&70
I hate to say it to you Bears fans, but the 72' No-name Defense was better than the 85' Bears defense. Why? It didn't have the flash of the 85 Bears, but as far as run and pass defense it was better. The Bears looked prettier because they played their playoff games against running teams in the snow. The 85' Dolphins exposed their huge weakness in their pass defense. That explains why the Bears were a one-year wonder, passing teams that used the short pass beat them every game the next year. The No-namers won another Super Bowl in 73 and lost on the last play against the cheating steroid laced Raiders the next year. They may have also won in 75,76, etc. Had it not been for the WFL (now defunct World Football League) buying their 3 top players. The 70's Dolphins had a winning record over the Steroid Steelers in the 70's. The 72' Dolphins had a much better offense than the 85 Bears, Walter Payton in his prime was arguably better than any of the Dolphin runners, but in 85 Payton was old and tired and nowhere in the league of Csonka, Kiick and Mercury Morris all in their prime with a great line in front of them. Griese/Morrall were much better than McMahon/and whatshisname... Remember this is a TEAM poll not just starters... Starters get injured in games don't they? Warfield and Gault were close.. But I give the edge to Warfield because he had more guts. Sure the team that rushes everybody looks great against running teams, but Marino showed they were vulnerable. The 1972 Dolphins won on the road against a better defense Pittsburgh Steeler team in the playoffs w/ their backup QB starting... End of story. Polls will be Polls but Undefeated is Perfection.

32007 New England Patriots
You have one of the greatest defenses ever featuring Samuel thomas vrabel seau warren green brushci harrison wilfork seymour and a good ellis hoobs year there weakest position (2nd corner) was considered above average by every other standard and the dominated the offense was lead by a line that has and is one of the greatest led by one of if not the greatest quarterback in brady and a great receiving core of welker and THE FREAK the only knock on this team is they couldn't but for god sakes did they even need to
New England was honestly the best because... Lemme think - They had arguably THE best QB of all time, arguably THE best offense in history, and they finally had a above-average defense at that time. If this team doesn't make it to the top 3, it would be a crime. Go Pats!
Giants got very, very lucky. That Super Bowl was just the most disappointing game I've ever watched. If the pats had played like they normally did, the giants would have gotten destroyed.

41989 San Francisco 49ers
Some of the best players ever on this team (Craig, Taylor, Lott) and THE best quarterback and receiver ever to grace the game (Montana and Rice, respectively) with a strong offensive line and THE best coach ever, the late, great Bill Walsh, who led his team to 7 playoff appearances and 3 super bowl victories. They had the most productive offense, the 3rd strongest defense, and the second best turnover ratio.
This is simply the greatest team of all time. Montana was the best. Rice was the best and they had to play against great teams.

Forget the rest, they were the best.
montana, rice, craig, taylor, lott... the west coast offence when nobody could defend it...

51979 Pittsburgh Steelers
14 hall of farmers, Blount was the creator of the Blount rule, having The Steel Curtain as a great name, a fan club for just about every player on the team, Joe Greene and Blount came from small colleges to belong into the NFL, 4 Super Bowls, greatest center of all time (mike Webster), THE DEFINITION of POUND IT FOOTBALL. All contributed to their success, Two of the best coaches of all time Chuck Noll head coach and Tony Dungy as a player. All time team: mike Webster, joe Greene, jack lambert, jack ham, and Mel Blount. Killed the raiders frequently and the Vikings (in first Super Bowl they held the Vikings to 12 rushing yards and less than 200 total! ) THEY HAD THE LARGEST ATTENDED SUPER BOWL AND GAME OF ALL TIME IN NFL HISTORY. Why the HECK would you pick any other team to be #1?
The Steelers in the 70's were a true nightmare for any NFL team, they were like walking into hell itself. If you tried to pass the ball you would get sacked. If you were lucky enough to get the ball off then it was picked or swatted. If you tried to run then let god have mercy on your soul cause you were about to get crushed. The Offense was great to. I mean come on Terry Bradshaw and Franco Harris, and don't forget Lynn Swann. This team may be one of the best teams that will ever exist. Along with the Bears(WALTER "SWEETNESS" PAYTON) and the 49ers(JOE MONTANA^^JERRY RICE).
4 Superbowl wins in one Decade... Sending 14 NFL Players to the NFL Pro Bowl, and a defensive unit comparable only to the 85' bears. Quite certainly one the best teams of all time.

I think the should be number one we do have the most appearance go cowboys win lose or tie I'm a cowboys fan till I die
By far the best team ever.. Would have destroyed any of these teams.. Best offenseive line of all time and one of the best and deepest Defensive Lines of all time.. Aikman was accurate and you had the greatest rusher of all time.. Jimmy Johnson coaching along with all that--No one beats this team..
#1 most rushing yards Emmitt smith #2 passing rating Troy Aikman #3 most receiving yards Michael Irvin in the 1992 season. Great offensive line. #1 defense of that year

71984 San Francisco 49ers
The team was a missed field goal (Steelers) from a perfect record. It was ranked number 1 on defense and number 2 in offense. The team did not have Jerry Rice. It rolled through the playoffs including a 23-0 beating of the Chicago Bears (the same team that would win the next year Super Bowl) and crush the Dolphins in the Super Bowl.
This was the best of the best of the 49ers. any questions?
I am a die hard fan of the 49ers. Who's hot it better than us? Nobody,

Good quarter backs nice uniforms great receivers and the defensive team is great
Terrell Davis, john Elway, Shanon Sharpe, rod smith, ed mcafery, Steve atwater, garry zimmerman etc. And also they're the only team to beat the packers at the super bowl, even with they're precious favre
The zone blocking scheme was tailor made for T. Davis as they wore opponents down. The running game took the pressure off Elway, allowing him to play in his comfort zone. Under-rated defense swarmed to the ball and they came with vengeance as some of the hardest hitting DB's and LB's took many options away

91999 St. Louis Rams
Averaged almost 33 per game, surrendered only 15 points per game. The greatest show on turf put up video game numbers all season as evidenced by Kurt Warner's 41 touchdown passes and a 109.2 QB rating.
I was a season ticket holder during that year. I remember when Trent Green went down. We all tailgated saying at the best 8-8. There is not at fan during that time that ever expected more! I to this day think it was one of the best seasons ever! I am now stuck in Houston were I have season tickets also, hope one day they will do the same!
Half of this team's offense is or will be a Hall of Famer. And let's not forget that they had one of the top 5 defenses.

101962 Green Bay Packers
how are the CHICAGO BEARS the best team?!?! They only won 1 superbowl, last time I checked the Packers won 4/5. Vince Lombardi, one of the greatest coaches of all time if not the greatest served the Green Bay Packers for almost 10 years. Yeah the Bears have won more games against the Packers but the Green Bay Packers have 13 championship titles, 4 superbowl wins, the atmosphere when you go to one of there games is phenomenal! If you support the other team, yeah we give ya a little crap but we still treat you nice. In Chicago you get booed outta the place. The Chicago Bears should NOT be #1, but the freekin Green Bay Packers baby should!
The Perfect team. Clutch Quarterback, amazing running backs, great offensive line, and a great defense. #1 team.


Yeah, they are a #1 team. I have a Bears fan friend who said they won 4 super bowls, even though they really won 5. They won the first 2 superbowls! They also won one last year (2011)against the Pittsburgh Steelers (who I hate, not because I'm a Colts and Ravens Fan).

The Contenders

111991 Washington Redskins
14-2 Regular season with a dominating Superbowl win over the Bills.

Best offensive line of all time. (Only 9 sacks all season.. ) (Though the Raider's early seventies line must not be ignored, they were amazing. Debate between whose was better continues to this day. )

Darrell Green and Charles Mann ran the second best defense in the league that year.

Joe Gibbs, One of the greatest coaches and game planners ever. (Common knowledge as he is almost always listed in the top 5 best head coaches ever. )

4 Hall of Famers were on this team: Monk, Green, Grimm, Gibbs. They were the backbone to a very talented team.

#1 offense #2 Defense for that year. This team dominated all opposition.

Definitely one of the all time greatest teams.
Not only did they after 15 games prior to taking out starters allow only 6 sacks(! )they led the league in scoring, barely missed leading in points allowed, but they also nearly finished 15-1 and had several shut outs by wide margins at home to start the season 11-0. Kicker outscored an entire team by himself, special teams, turnover differential, running game and receiver corps were stellar. SB score was deceptive, it was not even close. This Redskin team is easily one of the best in NFL history...
"HAIL TO THE REDSKINS". One of the last years of the incredible hogs. One of the best lines of all time. Plus the last superbowl for gibbs with yet another QB. Only coach to bring 3 to a victory. So underated and yet what a beautiful franchise tradition those skins have. BOO cowboys! GO SKINS!

With the defense this team had, it could have beaten ANY of the teams listed above. You can't run on them, and their secondary will create turnovers like crazy. Tom Brady and Peyton Manning would have gone home and cried in the fetal position after playing these guys.
Oh come on... these guys showed the NFL that you just need to have a good defense to win the Super Bowl. They worked so hard for it and they did not need anything but a defense!


This has to be the best defense ever I believe that the offense didnt score a touchdown in 3 games

141978 Pittsburgh Steelers
85 Bears #1, seriously? Lets break down how bad the 74, 75, 76, 79 or in this case, 78 Pittsburgh Steelers would beat them down!

The 85 Bears struggled against the pass if they faced an o-line that could protect their qb, reference Danny Marino taking it to them that year. Mike Webster and that Steelers O-line would have given Terry Bradshaw enough time to find open receivers. Those receivers were Swann and Stallworth, they would have been wide open. Franco would have got his fair share on the ground too. Steelers Offense scores a few times on the Bears D.

85 Bears offense vs the Steel Curtain. Give me a break! Walter Payton would have got a few yards vs Mean Joe, Jack Ham and Jack Lambert, but he's not breakin 100! Bears gotta pass, who do they got? Jim McMahon? Wide Receviers nobody can remember? Yeah that's gonna work well vs the Steelers pass rush, Mel Blount and Donnie Shell. Bears get into the redzone once or twice the whole game.

Final Score: Steelers 24-3
The Superbowl that year was a match up between the 12-4, defending Champs, Dallas Cowboys and the 14-2, winners of 2 of the last 4 Superbowls, Pittsburgh Steelers. This was as big as the Superbowl could get and in a match up of the two heavy weights, Pittsburgh dominanted, going up 35-17 with just minutes to play in the game. Dallas scored two touchdowns in the last 2 minutes to make it look close, but these Steelers were the VERY BEST.
I think they are the best franchise in all of football, and I can easily back it up. They don't change coaches every other year. They keep their players and develop them. I have heard many players and coaches they are the best run franchise in all of football. And almost any football player would love to play for the Steelers because it is an honor.

161996 Green Bay Packers
Reggie white is the best defensive player of all time. He was a monster on the field and not even Erik Williams could beat him he had 198 sacks through his career second most in history. Brett Favre has the most passing yards, passing touchdowns, and was the toughest player ever he has the record for the most consecutive starts in a row. And you might say the reason he had so many yards and touchdowns because he played for so long but he broke both records long before he retired.
The best offense and the best defense in the NFL during the 1996 season. Had an average margin of victory of over 17 points through the playoffs and the Super Bowl
They had Favre in his prime. Farve man.

171998 Minnesota Vikings
Cunningham's best year as a pro, Randy Moss's coming out party, and old reliable Cris Carter made this team dominant 9n 1998, but poor coaching and decision making in the 1999 NFC Championship game cost them a trip to the Super Bowl and to be one of the best teams of all time you have to have great players, great coaching, and that ring, gotta have that ring! Boo to anyone who votes for the 2007 Patriots.
Should be much higher than this. Lost two games by a TOTAL of sic points. I don't understand how they could placed this low on the list. It's almost ridiculous to me how they are 13 and others are ranked higher who did not win the super bowl.
Team of 1999 best record. Great receiver, Moss, Carter, and more divisional championships
the 1998 season, when they made the best record in its history with imposing 15-1 record of 556 points scored this season.

192005 Pittsburgh Steelers
If the 05 steelers, who barely made it to the Super Bowl, are on here... The 2013 Seahawks, who soared to the Super Bowl and won against one of the best offences of all time with a near blow out, should be on here... I'm not saying the hawks deserve a position on this list, I'm saying the steelers definitely DO NOT DESERVE A POSITION ON THIS LIST (at least the 05 steelers)
I fee for someone like Big Ben who was SO young to win a super bowl is AMAZING! It was all about Jerome "The Bus" Bettis being able to not only finish off where he started, but to win a super bowl as well. As an added bonus, not only did Willie Parker have the longest run from scrimmage, but Antwaan Randle El was the first non quarterback to throw a touchdown in the Super Bowl.
After barely getting into the playoffs, this team simply was on a mission to shut up the naysayers. With a young Ben Roethlisberger, and an aging Jerome Bettis leading the way, this team won three playoff games as a #6 seed, all on the road. After destroying Seattle in the Super Bowl, which we all saw coming, this was a team of destiny and although their record was "only"
11-5, they had just the right pieces for just the right puzzle at just the right time

Greatest season of all time by a QB (Dan Marino) Just so untimely that it was also the greatest season for the 49ers. Best offense (Dolphins) vs. Best Defense (49ers) and it just goes to show you that Defense always wins even when God (Dan Marino) is throwing the ball.

This team should be way higher. It destroyed all its playoff opponents. They knew the run was coming and they not do anything about it. The greatest offensive line in history. 2 in the Hall of Fame. 1 should be and all 5 were pro bowlers. Defense was underrated. They gave up very few points.

This is a joke. All but 2 of the top 20 teams are from within the past 15-20 years. Cleveland Browns of the early 1950's made the playoffs 10 straight years, won 7 championships and have 10 players and a coach in the Hall of Fame and no votes? Green Bay Packers of 1961-1966 won 5 NFL championships and the first 2 Super Bowls, have 9 hall of fame players and the greatest coach ever (whom the Super Bowl trophy is named after) and they get no top 15 respect. The people who voted this must all be under 30 years old and/or "hittin the crack pipe a bit too much"...

Wow, the 2007 Oakland Raiders are ahead of the 1994 San Francisco 49ers. Why are the 2007 New England Patriots number two? They didn't win the Super Bowl so they can't be one of the greatest teams ever. The greatest teams finish the deal and they couldn't. Why are the 1984 San Francisco 49ers so low as well? I have three 49er teams in my top ten, yet I only see the 1989 squad.


best team ever. nothing to be said about it it was nfl's dream team. they had it all. if god made his allstar team it would have been the 94 niners

Eight hall of famers on that team;A. Davis, J. Madden, W. Brown, T. Hendricks, A. Shell, G. Upshaw, D. Casper&FreddieB. Also four that should be;K. Stabler, C. Branch, R. Guy. &J. Tatum. Their are awards still given out due to members of this list. They are the Ray Guy Award, The Freddie B. Award & The Jack Tatum Award. This team was just Voted Best NFL team ever... See NFL Network for details.
The Raiders only lost 1 game that year -the Patriots came back and beat them in the playoffs beat the steelers also killed Minnesota in the super bowl for a single season and the talent level at that time the Raiders are the best of all time
This team was unstoppable going 13-1 and winning the Super Bowl. Ken Stabler at QB, Fred Biletnikoff and Cliff Branch at WR, great secondary and defense overall, and last but not least coached by THE John Madden.

I loves the Eagles when I was a baby. It's because my father scream at Eagles when they playing against the Giants. And He uses play semi-football. Eagles rock put the Giants, Redskin and Cowboys out of this World. Eagles all way to the Super Bowl.
Philadelphia eagles should be lower

432012 Denver Broncos
THat impossible the 2012 Denver Broncos Are Great they have a 11 game winning streak since they lost to the pats and are #1 in the AFC they should be way higher
Peyton Manning! Woot woot!
Best team I've ever seen

442002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers


They blew out every team in the playoffs including the raiders in the Super bowl. They scored a total of 9 touchdowns as a defense and thats not even including all the interceptions they had as a defense. In the superbowl they had 5 total and taking back 3 for touchdowns. Decent offense but probably one of the top 5 defenses of all time.

451958 Baltimore Colts
58 colts! I've listened and watched NFL football far longer than many of you so-called authorities most of you clowns probably never picked up a football. 50's had the browns, lions, and the rams. Packers in 60's steelers 70's the 49ers, were the most overrated, Oakland was Avery good team. Who ever rated these teams in that order... ARE ROOKIES! Stay with your game.. Ping pong, golf or cards and stay close to your mommy for protection
One of the best teams ever and run by the best QB ever in Unitas and whats more, they came back and did it again the next year even better.


Unitas, Berry, Marchetti, Parker all on short list of best ever at their position.

462011 San Francisco 49ers
Sanfransico 49ers is the best team in the histery of teams I love the 49ers
I Love the 49ers

471997 Denver Broncos
Would beat each of the top 8 teams listed here. Can't stop the run and one of best qb's of all time.

481957 Detroit Lions
The best team of the 50s.

491963 San Diego Chargers
They had everything, offense, defense, special teams and were the first glamor team of pro football.
They should be number 5 what the hek!

502012 Houston Texans
Good year for the texans, just need a lil more back then
Beast team I should know I was born there
They are the best

512001 New England Patriots
Tom Brady was absolutely amazing he will surpass many records for the years to come.

522003 New England Patriots

ball hawking secondary, underrated team.

531999 Jacksonville Jaguars

Wow, Great season. Just lost to the Titans 3 times..

541968 New York Jets
Ya Go jets! I love this team they just need to win a couple more super bowls to be considered very good. They are just underrated. That's the problem.
My dad cherishes his Namath jersey. I love the Jets. Why aren't they higher? I'm sure I saw the same two teams twice somewhere.
Jets are underrated. Give them a chance.
Best team of all time. New York Sack Exchange.

They should be higher in the list we are talking about one of the most popular sports teams of all time.

571965 Cleveland Browns
Here we go brownies here we go the browns were amazing especially with Paul brown at their side

582007 Dallas Cowboys
It is the best team there is ever going to be. The new england patriots are nerver going to be as good as them.

592007 San Diego Chargers

601949 Philadelphia Eagles

612009 New Orleans Saints
This team won the super bowl!
They MUST be higher on the list

622010 Green Bay Packers
With 16 players on the IR list, Aaron Rogers and his squad dominated in the playoffs and went on to win the Super Bowl. This team should definitely be ranked in the top ten of greatest teams of all time.
Belong higher on this list... Sad

631990 New York Giants

641961 Green Bay Packers

652010 Pittsburgh Steelers
This team was so explosive. They had so much talent that you knew you had to be careful around them, offense or defense. Plus they brought home ring #6 to Pittsburgh

662009 Minnesota Vikings
Who ever won that NFC title game was going to win the Superbowl.

671990 Buffalo Bills
Out coached in the Super Bowl but definitely had the talent.
Greatest team to never win Superbowl. 4 straight, back to back seasons, 4 Superbowl appearances in 4 years. 0 wins.
Buffalo (0-4) losses:
SB25: 20-19 NY Giants over Buffalo
SB26: 37-24 Washington over Buffalo
SB27: 52-17 Dallas over Buffalo
SB28: 30-13 Dallas over Buffalo

682012 Seattle Seahawks
Easily could have made the Superbowl if The falcons didn't make that last second field goal.
Yes, the would have won against if Pete Carrol wouldn't have made that dumb call and tried to ice the kicker! 2014 Super Bowl Champions!

691984 Oakland Raiders

701982 Washington Redskins
This team was truly INCREDIBLE! People forget... Riggins right/Riggins left. So simple and yet so unstoppable! Simple and you knew what was coming... stopping it? Was another matter altogether! Go Hogs!

712011 Cincinnati Bengals

Best bengals team ever but trust me they are going to get way better because andy dalton and aj green are just getting started


First of all how are the 2011 bengals better than the super bowl bengals of the 80's

722011 New York Giants
The patriots lost to the giants, and there in the top 15!

732002 Atlanta Falcons
This should be one of the top 20 at least!

742005 Seattle Seahawks
Probably the best Seattle team of all time. Dominated all year with a 14-2Superbowl season. Only to eventually lose a very controversial game in The Superbowl to the Pittsburgh Steelers. They were clearly the better team.
Seattle's team could not have been better. Lead by the power running attack of Shaun Alexander.

751969 Kansas City Chiefs

762003 Carolina Panthers
They went to the Super Bowl in 2003 and played a good game against the New England Patriots. I think that they are a good team! :-)

781984 New England Patriots

792009 Arizona Cardinals

Cool team in the NFL
They are the best team in the NFL

862013 Carolina Panthers
Been rooting for them and the Seahawks all the way! I am glad seahawks avenged them by knocking out the 49ers.

872008 Pittsburgh Steelers
Five of the greatest linebackers in NFL history. FIVE! That's more than they can even have on the field!


Hardest schedule in nfl history. #1 defense in almost all catigories. Best defense against the tuffest opponents every week of the regular season. Even with all the rules favoring the offense.

882008 Detriot Lions

891975 Minnesota Vikings

901987 Cleveland Browns

971934 Chicago Bears

981986 New York Giants
This team should be ranked in the top 5 look at how they dominated on both sides of the ball. I will give you the 85 bears an
The 72 dolphins and the 71 cowboys and the 62 packers that is it... Remember that team beat a great 49 team 49-3 and during their march knocked countless qbs out of games.
Lawrence Taylor and Phil Simms with the highest Superbowl QB rating ever. Plus Harry Carson, Leonard Martin, Joe Morris, Mark Bavaro. Oh yeah, and two future hof coaches named Bill.
Two letters - LT. The most feared and important linebacker of all time because he changed the position forever. All hail Alpha dog #1.
