Top 10 Best NFL Offenses of All Time


The Top Ten

1 2013 Denver Broncos

There have been many great offensive teams, but the 2013 Broncos are the ONLY team to have score 600 or more points, so no team had a better offense than they did. Sorry, delusional Patriots fans, it's true.

Wins/losses aside, highest scoring offense ever. Holding over 80% of the single season records for an offense. Hands down.

I don't have much to say. Look at the numbers. They actually got bored, they rolled outta bed and were already up by 28.

Clearly the best of all time from all statistical view points.

2 2007 New England Patriots

Wes Welker, Randy Moss AND Tom Brady on the same team for one of the highest scoring NFL offenses ever? There should be no question about it.

As patriots fan, duh I believe there the best, but 16-0 is enough to make even any fan of the game to believe it was the best team ever.

Shattered every record and went 16-0 in the regular season! Just Awesome!

Did it against good defenses. broncos played one of the easiest schedules in league history.

3 2000 St. Louis Rams

#1 - The 2000 Rams. (No, I'm not a Rams fan at all, I'm a Raiders fan) was the best offense I've ever seen. Great O-line. A QB playing as good as any QB ever has. A great running attack. Fast and reliable wideouts, running the West Coast Offense better than anyone ever has.
#2 - 1987 49ers.
#3 - 1998 Vikings.
#4 - 1992 Cowboys.
#5 - (not even mentioned) 1990 Buffalo Bills. (You know I'm not biased as they beat my Raiders 51-3 in the playoffs).
This years Viking? If anything this year's Saints should be in the top ten.
The 83 Redskins were great too, despite losing horribly in the Superbowl. - corebare

The rams were such a great offense that they didn't need to cheat like the Pats in 2001. But the Rams were so good that the Patriots needed a field goal to win. But even though the Patriots thought they could win by spyware the Rams still showed that even if you try to cheat they're gonna make it hard for them. The only way they could win was to cheat and they should admit it. That's why the Rams are truly the greatest offense of all time.

The 2007 Patriots was a better TEAM but the 2000 Rams was a better OFFENSE. I feel like the only reason the 2007pats are number 1 is because they were more recent.
I mean come on Kurt Warner at the helm, Issac Bruce on one side Tory Holt on the other side and a top 5 running back of all time running back who also acted like a star receiver getting 1,000 receiving yards... Come on.

Just read what espn says,Rams #1

4 1998 Minnesota Vikings

Randy Moss's rookie season sums up how good the Vikings were that year not to mention the total points record shattered until 2007 Patriots who again had Randy Moss!

I'm not being biased, but I have been a Vikings fan since the mid 80's in a Midwest town that was screaming out about the '85 Bears. But, the 1998 Vikes were the Rams even became the "Greatest Show on Turf". They had the same offensive set up. Robert Smith could run and catch the ball out of the backfield, Cris Carter was the veteran WR who could always catch any ball thrown to him. Then Jake Reed was on his game, and then the "Freak" Randy Moss! I have never seen a WR at his height and length have ridiculous speed. So Rams fans remember that no one have never put up numbers like the Vikings until the 2007 Patriots.

Definitely the first best offense in my opinion they had Chris Carter Randy moss Jake reed and Matthew Hachette 4great wide outs followed by a great rb from Ohio state buckeyes Robert Smith followed by one of the great qbs Randall Cunningham avg 42 points a game that's unbelievable handsdown

5 2011 New Orleans Saints

Underrated and should be top 3 all time. One of the most dominant offenses in NFL history terrified opposing defenses and was one of the most fun to watch. Drew Brees was unstoppable and guaranteed his first-ballot Hall of Fame induction.

Brees was robbed of the MVP award in 2011. There is no reason he should not have won it after this season. He also put up over 900 yards and 7 touchdowns in 2 playoff games, one of those games was against the top defense that year.

Most yards gained ever in one season

Brees won MVP

8 2016 Atlanta Falcons

Statistically, yes. Realistically, yes. This team has been able to outrun a mediocre defense and virtually decimate any and every team they play. Oh, and they played the toughest defensive schedule of all 32 franchises

High flying attack see you in Houston!

This offense has so many weapons and well balanced. If you can't score 30, you in trouble.

9 1992 Dallas Cowboys

Dallas was the best offense ever, emmit, aikman, Irvin, and the best offense of line in football, how more can you ask for?

They ate the best!

I say they are closer to the top because you have the greatest cowboys QB and most likely the greatest WR in history... One of the greatest and a RB who if has the slightest hole he finds it gets through it and he's gone.

The Triplets... that's is all. Troy Aikman handing the ball to Emmitt Smith and tossing it to Michael Irvin from behind one of the best O-lines in the history of the game. A great tight end named Jay Novachek and another great wide out in Alvin Harper. 3 rings in 4 years says a lot. The only playoff loss came from Steve Youngs 49ers in 1994 NFC Championship game. That's the caliber of team it took to outshine these guys. While I agree that the 07 pats where great, they will always have a couble *'s during the Tom Brady years. Spygate and Defategate, true or not, really hurts the reputation of the team... Namely the offense.

The Newcomers

? 2007 Indianapolis Colts

Arguably 2 of the best receivers of all time in Reggie Wayne and Marvin Harrison, Peyton Manning in his prime, a reliable running back in Dominic Rhodes, one of the best tight ends of his time in Dallas Clark, and a very good offensive line led by Jeff Saturday. 2nd in the league in scoring. Sounds like a pretty good offense to me.

? 1994 San Francisco 49ers

Steve young Jerry rice... Deion occasionally in the slot.. Ricky walters was Marshall faulk that year! Ended in most points ever in the Superbowl and dominanted the unstoppable cowboys that year easily top 5 all-time

The Contenders

11 1983 Washington Redskins
12 1987 San Francisco 49ers
13 2004 Indianapolis Colts

2004 colts are number 2 offense of all time right behind 2013 Broncos.

Manning, edgerin james, harrison, and Wayne were a lethal combination. Manning broke the record for most touchdown passes by a qb with 48 and were one big ben tackle away from potentially going to the sb.

14 2011 Green Bay Packers

They went 15-1 and had the worst defense in the league. Aaron Rodgers broke the record for single season passer rating.

Best statistical offense ever

3rd highest scoring offense EVER, 560 points. How is this not near the top?

15 1984 San Francisco 49ers
16 1962 Green Bay Packers

I think they were awesome that year, I can't remember but I think they won the superbowl that yaer

There was no Super Bowl that year - Danmarino4

17 1999 St. Louis Rams

As good as offense as the Broncos have today or any team of that matter, the Rams have showed and proved that they are truly the greatest and without any hesitation proved that Patriots are no match for this Rams offense.

18 1990 Buffalo Bills V 1 Comment
19 1981 San Diego Chargers

Man what an offense that was. And all others copied pieces of it

I've been watching football since 1970 I have never seen a football Kings score at will they had Pro Bowl Talent at every position on offense and a genius at coach Don Coryell or air Coryell he did the same thing with the st. Louis Cardinals

Never saw a team that had so much talent that never won a Superbowl! 😳

20 2009 New Orleans Saints

This 2009 New Orleans Saints team averaged an impressive 32 points per game--only one point behind the 2000 Rams--while also racking up over 400 yards of offense per game. Not only that, the quarterback, Drew Brees paved the way to the championship with a 109.6 PR, having over 4300 yards of offense, while the team managed to combine another 2100 rushing yards. The 2009 Saints team earned the reputation of possessing such a capable, multi-dimensioned offense that could rip apart opponent's defenses through alternating and executing the pass and run throughout the entirety of the season--despite the three game skid starting 13-0.

The best of the Saints and a Super Bowl
