Top 10 Most Cursed Sports Teams

These teams have not had much success in the past, whether it might be countless playoff heartbreak, or just being plain bad.

The Top Ten

Cleveland Browns The Cleveland Browns are a professional American football team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Browns compete in the National Football League as a member team of the American Football Conference North division. ...read more.

Until this team wins the championship, the Browns will forever be haunted by words that hurt a lot to the Brwons fans: The Retirement (Jim Brown), Red Right 88, The Drive, The Fumble, Bottlegate and worst of all The Move.

Used to be a model franchise in NFL's early days. But since then, they have gone through numerous draft busts and starting QBs.

They seemed cursed since they always seem to miss the playoffs ever since 2003

They’ve had a lot of bad luck over the years but something tells me Baker will be different. He may finally give that team something to celebrate besides just a win.

Detroit Lions The Detroit Lions are a professional American football team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Lions compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. ...read more.

In the past last few years sure we made two playoff appearance only to lose go figure it's the Lions, anyways since then we have lost big major pieces of our team like Ndamukong Suh, Calvin Johnson, & Stephen Tulloch in a way. Now entering this new season I am approaching it with an open mind as if I know what will happen no need to overreact the result will be the same to me and hope for better of this team. If I'm correct in the future, If Stafford incredibly under performs to his expectations this year combined with terrible coaching then they should be considered top 5, If not top 3 I have suffered with this team for quite a long time of losing seasons and typical results over and over.

Yes, you guys will say they are "too low". But they have been a little bit better recently, that doesn't save them from being on this list, though. Twice superstars have retired in their primes and are one of four teams not to have appeared in the Super Bowl.

Toronto Maple Leafs The Toronto Maple Leafs, officially the Toronto Maple Leaf Hockey Club and often simply referred to as the Leafs, are a professional ice hockey team based in Toronto, Ontario. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a member of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference.

Like the Browns, was once a model franchise. But they haven't won the cup since 1967 and since then have been a doormat of the NHL.

Chicago Cubs The Chicago Cubs are an American professional baseball team based in Chicago, Illinois. The Cubs compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the National League Central division.

Another reason why I hate voting just to express my opinion. Also, change the name of this list to 'Most cursed North American sports teams' it would suit this list a lot better.

Hey the curse is finally over, so therefore they should be lower.

They won the 2016 world series

No championships since 1908. enough said.

New York Knicks The New York Knickerbockers, commonly referred to as the Knicks, are an American professional basketball team based in the borough of Manhattan, in New York City.

Yes they've been good and at times great BUT since 1973, never won the NBA Championship. Among the key curses we're signing Spencer Haywood, Bob McAdoo (even though he still had good seasons even in New York), Marvin Webster, The injury of Scoring sensation Bernard King in 1985, The Bulls of the late 1980s and into 1993, Larry Brown as head coach and even Lenny Wilkens as head coach, John Starks' awful 1994 nba finals Game 7 performance and finally Phil Jackson as General Manager.

Have they ever been good?

Buffalo Sabres The Buffalo Sabres are a professional ice hockey team based in Buffalo, New York. They are members of the Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The perfect team to be cursed, here's a few reasons, the Broad Street Bullies beat the Sabres IN Buffalo in the 1975 Stanley Cup Finals, "No Goal" in the 1999 Stanley Cup Finals, the breakup of the French Connection, the tragic death of Tim Horton, the 1992-93 Canadiens in a 7-game heartbreak loss, the Non-Goal that counted in the Flyers ellimnating the Sabres in the 2000 playoffs, 6 head coaches since 2013, the firing of Ted Nolan despite being named the NHL Coach of the Year, and so on

Texas Rangers The Texas Rangers are an American professional baseball team based in Arlington, Texas located in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex.

A lot of you guys will be against me, but I decided the Rangers are haunted enough to deserve a spot on the list. Made it to two straight World Series, but lost them both, the latter in agonizing fashion.

Philadelphia Eagles The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

I still can't believe they made it to the NFC Championship game four straight years in a row, yet made the SB only once, losing to New England. Their fans will tell you that as successful as they have been in the regular season, they are almost guaranteed to choke in the playoffs.

They finally won a super bowl

They won a super bowl!

Minnesota Vikings The Minnesota Vikings are an American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1960, and first took the field for the 1961 season.

Not a Vikings fan but the 2017 postseason was a perfect example. They had a Minneapolis miracle against New Orleans and then they followed that game with an absolute meltdown against Philadelphia who won the super bowl

Being a Vikings fan myself, it was very painful to put them on the list. They're probably the "best" team to be on the list, but they have been ripping fan's hearts out for years and years.

Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

This one speaks for itself. Went to four straight SB's, lost them all. Only sports team that hasn't been to the playoffs in the century.

They have made the playoffs in the 21st century finally but going to 4 straight Super Bowls and not winning 1 is a sign you’re a cursed team

The Contenders

Los Angeles Clippers The Los Angeles Clippers, often abbreviated as the LA Clippers, are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles.

Recently became good, but that doesn't erase their early years of being a doormat. They are one of three teams that have yet to make it to the Conference Finals

Chris Paul went to the rockets.

San Jose Sharks The San Jose Sharks are a professional ice hockey team based in San Jose, California. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

I'll admit it, I had a tough time deciding who should have taken #10, but the Sharks are one of those teams that will do really well in the regular season, only to choke in the playoffs.

Utah Jazz The Utah Jazz are an American professional basketball team based in Salt Lake City, Utah. The Jazz compete in the National Basketball Association as a member club of the league's Western Conference Northwest Division.
Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
Washington Capitals The Washington Capitals (colloquially known as the Caps) are a professional ice hockey team based in Washington, D.C. They compete in the National Hockey League (NHL) as a member of the Metropolitan Division of the Eastern Conference. The Capitals are owned by Monumental Sports & Entertainment, headed ...read more.

Washington Capitals--Sharks joined the NHL in 91, Caps have been breaking their fans hearts since 74

They finally won the cup!

Edmonton Oilers The Edmonton Oilers are a professional ice hockey team based in Edmonton, Alberta. They are members of the Pacific Division of the Western Conference of the National Hockey League.

They had a good season and still missed the playoffs again it sucked

Oilers some reason seemed cursed missed playoffs lots then had a good 2019-2020 season then the Coronavirus stopped the season

Detroit Pistons The Detroit Pistons are an American professional basketball team based in Detroit, Michigan. The Pistons compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Central Division.
Cleveland Indians The Cleveland Indians are an American professional baseball team based in Cleveland, Ohio. The Indians compete in Major League Baseball as a member club of the American League Central division.

They blew the World Series to the Cubs a few years ago. And being in Cleveland doesn’t help.

Arizona Cardinals The Arizona Cardinals are a professional American football franchise based in the Phoenix metropolitan area.

They haven’t won any championships since 1947.

Atlanta Falcons The Atlanta Falcons are a professional American football team based in Atlanta, Georgia. The Falcons compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

After witnessing them blow a 28-3 lead in the super bowl I'd say it must have been a curse.

Toronto Raptors The Toronto Raptors are a Canadian professional basketball team based in Toronto, Ontario. The Raptors compete in the National Basketball Association, as a member of the league's Eastern Conference Atlantic Division.
Florida Panthers The Florida Panthers are an American professional ice hockey team based in the Miami metropolitan area.
St Kilda

What team is this?

Dallas Cowboys The Dallas Cowboys are a professional American football team based in the Dallas–Fort Worth metroplex. The Cowboys compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.
Arsenal Arsenal Football Club is a professional football club based in Islington, London, England, that plays in the Premier League, the top flight of English football.
