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.

They seemed cursed since they always seem to miss the playoffs ever since 2003 - trains45

On the 2018 - 19, they were doing good - ArcticWolf

Used to be a model franchise in NFL's early days. But since then, they have gone through numerous draft busts and starting QBs. - Apples23

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. - Randomator

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. - htoutlaws2012

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. - Apples23

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. - Apples23

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. - AGK

The curse is over, but it lasted 108 YEARS, PEOPLE!

Hey the curse is finally over, so therefore they should be lower. - htoutlaws2012

They won the 2016 world series - WorldPuncher47592834

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.

Have they ever been good? - Randomator

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).
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. - Apples23

Philadelphia Eagles

They finally won a super bowl - Randomator

They won a super bowl! - WorldPuncher47592834

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. - Apples23

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 - Randomator

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. - Apples23

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. - Apples23

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 - Randomator

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 - Apples23

Chris Paul went to the rockets. - WorldPuncher47592834

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. - Apples23

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.

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. - Randomator

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. - Randomator

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.
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.

Oilers some reason seemed cursed missed playoffs lots then had a good 2019-2020 season then the Coronavirus stopped the season - trains45
