Top Ten Worst NFL Football Teams

The Top Ten
1 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. more.

The Cleveland Browns haven't won the NFL championship since 1964, they haven't been to NFL championship game since 1969 (Remember, before the merger between the AFL and the NFL each league had separate championship games), they haven't been to the AFC championship since 1989 and when they made it that far in 86', 87', and 89' they lost to the same team, John Elway's Denver Broncos, the original team ended up moving to Baltimore in 1996 and within five years that team had won a Super Bowl. To further add insult to injury the Browns last playoff appearance was a wildcard game back in 2002, during which they gave up the lead to Tommy Maddox late in the game and lost, in 2007 they barely missed the playoffs to the Steelers and since they returned in 1999, they have been consistently at the bottom of their division and they have gone through 26 different starting quarterbacks, only further showing the fact that this team hasn't had a franchise quarterback since Bernie Kosar and he left the ...more

This team is now my least favorite team for two reasons. One: They suck and they are the worst. Two: Someone who treated me like crap her dad is a Browns fan and that's the reason why I hate the Browns so much. The Browns should burn. I hate this team I wish the person whose name shall not be spoken as it is the most evil name in the world shall vanish and be wiped from people's minds. Their logo is ugly it's just a stupid brown helmet. Let's just say if the NFL folded one team it would be the Browns.

When Robert Griffin III takes his first snap, he'll be the latest in a long line of starters to try to end the Browns' 13-season playoff drought. LeBron James may have broken the Cleveland Curse, but he had more to work with than Griffin will: Backs Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson Jr. aren't yet 24 years old, and rookie receiver Corey Coleman, while a smart pick-up in the draft, is too inexperienced to be a go-to target. If the offense falters, Cody Kessler could become starter 26.

I quite surprised to discover they missed the playoffs every year since 2003, I don't follow the NFL much so I wanted to see when Browns were last in the playoffs. According to football they last were in the playoffs in 2002.

2 Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.

You're gonna tell me that over one in ten people thought this was the worst?
FIRST OFF the jaguars in the late 90s to the mid 2000s was powerhouses and honestly was and still is fun to watch. SECONDLY the jags are a good fight and bring a special spark to the stadium " but, ya know, let's just make fun of them cause they was a few points off HAHA YOU GOT SMASHED WE ARE THE KINGS JAGS ARE TRASH! 1! 111! ". THIRD I am only 11 and am not very invested in football, but the jags just became a pastime that turned into a hobby that evolved into a lifestyle, I can say that in my eyes the jaguars are winners, even though they fell from the statue of liberty and are still recovering. I love the jags and how they get more shade than the browns will forever confuse me.

The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida. The Jaguars compete in the National Football League (NFL) as a member club of the American Football Conference (AFC) South division. The team plays its home games at EverBank Field.

The Jaguars and the Carolina Panthers joined the NFL as expansion teams for the 1995 season. Since their inception, the Jaguars have won division championship in 1998 and 1999 (as members of the defunct AFC Central) and have qualified for the playoffs six times, most recently in 2007.

From their inception until 2011, the Jacksonville Jaguars' majority owner was Wayne Weaver. The team was then purchased by Pakistani-born businessman Shahid Khan for an estimated $770 million. In 2015, Forbes estimated the team value at 1.48 billion.

Better than the browns... I see everyone going, "The browns were good back in the day! " Yea back 40-50 years ago. The Jaguars were established in 1993 whereas the Browns were established in 1946 and have barely anything to show for it... The Jaguars are a pretty Mediocre team who although doesn't win too often give up a great fight. The Browns are like the Javale Mcgee's of Football. A lot of talent just executed horribly and just a waste of talent

I can't blame the Jaguars but they have rarely made the playoffs and have won zero or one playoff games. To truly be the worst you must have no franchise titles, including pre-super bowl and NFL and AFL championship games form 66-69, despite only existing in the Super Bowl era the Jaguars have not had any titles. Thus they are the worst.

3 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. more.

0-16 season. Second longest playoff win drought. Waste of hall of fame player talent over the years (Sanders, Johnson, etc). Always finding new ways to lose games and new rule changes made (Calvin Johnson rule for example). Cursed is the only way to describe this team.

Along with the Cleveland browns, this team has to be the worst team ever! What have they done of any great note?...are there any lions fans outside of Michigan?...not even sure that Les gold would be able to save this team, as someone previously mentioned.

You guys need to get over their 2008 season! They have recovered with Ziggy Ansah, Calvin Johnson, Matt Stafford, Suh, and DeAndre Levy! Stop saying they suck, because they are getting good! Their tight end may be horrible, but every other position is in good hands.

No I'm for the loins. Cause I'm a Detroiter and Loins football team is awesome and the person who is saying they are terrible they shouldent in anyway. What if your team got on this list and what ever team you say is terrible got on the best list. Would you call your team terrible?

4 Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

I'm not gonna lie the patriots won over 5 Superbowl championships. Everyone literally thinks the patriots are just cheaters and calling them everywhere while Tom Brady literally has a really great concept to win the super bowl, so its just skills.

Are you serious? They are not the worst team.Brady and Belicheik have 5 Super Bowls. So they are the best team in the league now. If you mean worst as in disrespectful then yes they are the worst for spy gate and deflate gate.Ironic how the best team is the most disrespectful.You'd think that the most disrespectful team would be Cleveland or San Deigo. So that is why NOBODY outside of Boston or New England wants the Evil Empire of football to win.

Screw that! The patriots are the greatest team ever! And I'm saying that as a Broncos fan, I don't give a crap. They are better and in the end, the whinny fools who say the patriots are a bunch of losers, are losers themselves!

Pats are the BEST TEAM EVER! So what if they cheated that ONE TIME! They're gonna be the best team this season! People just need to get over the deflation! It happened TWO years ago! I mean Geez! But Patriots are THE BEST TEAM EVER!

5 Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

They're already 0-6 this season, and they are 13 point underdogs against the Bills and 22.5 POINT UNDERDOGS against the Chiefs. I know those are good teams but that's just ridiculous.

How are they not in the top 5? After Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez arrived in NY, this team has been nothing but a pathetic circus. Those two AFC title games were thanks to your defense and don't get me started about the Tebow fiasco. Its sad that the last franchise QB for this team was Joe Namath. Ever since those days the Jets haven't sniffed a SB. Get ready for Teddy Bridgewater or Johnny Manziel in 2014.

There's only room for one team in New York... Literally. There's a team of giants there we can't have a whole other team. The Giants have all their banners there hanging up and so the jets have even one?

The Jets are actually doing pretty good this year. Let me compare the scores to the Giants. Jets 3-2, Giants 0-5

6 Raiders The Las Vegas Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Las Vegas. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger. more.

Say one thing. The Raiders are pretty much the worst team to ever play in the NFL. Few playoff appearances since the 80's, and only beats the Chiefs when the Chiefs have bad luck. They can't find themselves an actual stadium to play in, and now they have to play out of Vegas. Derek Carr is absolutely a jerk to anyone, and sometimes doesn't even shake hands after a game. So more then one thing, but it takes this long to sum up how bad the Raiders are. And I live in Oakland.

I love the raiders, but this makes no sense, they have a foundation in Carr Mack and cooper, an amazing staff, arguably the best o-line, and a up and coming defense, also a f this is the 10 worst teams 1. Why are jags 1 and Browns 2. And 2. Why are the patriots on the list

Raiders really suck I mean back a few years ago they were two and 14 losing to my favorite team I also think that the seahawks are the best with richard Sherman and more defensive guys they are one of the greatest players ever.

They are the worst team in my head, are the Broncos rivals and they beat the Bengals just to get Bo Jackson cursed by Boomer Eision. They are dumb according to Denver fans.

7 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.

Cowboys by far are the worst team of all time. They've never won a super bowl. For the people that think they won a super bowl it was an illusion or a rigged game. They sure Do suck. They won four games this year. Boy they stink hiring wife beaters and still can't win. Go eagles. Eagles the best. Eagles won 100superbowls. Cowgirls are the worst even worse than browns they are the laughing stock of the league, zero super bowls for these losers. They have to buy wins. Ask Mr Jones he'd know

As a Cowboys fan I will always remain loyal to my team. I will say though that we will not be great again until we are rid of Jerry Jones. To those of you who say Romo is the problem then you do not watch or see his true talent. I think Romo is a very talented and underrated quarterback who rarely seems to have luck on his side. Plus he has lousy offensive coordinators to listen to. In 2015 we were 3-1 with Romo and 1-13 without him, need I say more?

For all of you who are voting for the Cowboys this poll is asking which team is the least successful, Even if I was a Washington Redskins fan I would not vote for this team. If you hate the Cowboys the most you should vote for them in that kind of list that is about your least favorite team not who you think is the least. successful

Cowboys have won 5 super bowls. 21 division tittles. 30 playoff appearances. Highest winning percentage in regular season since 1960.574 in the NFL. Most consecutive winning seasons 20 by the cowboys 1966-1985. NFL record. How are the cowboys in the top 10.

8 Chargers The Los Angeles Chargers are a professional American football team based in Los Angeles. The Chargers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

As far as the playoffs goes, they choked every time they made it. I mean the Jets beat them twice in the playoffs in San Diego.

Chargers are better than any other NFL team. The only team who comes close are the Giants!

This dumb team always finds a way to win these days but I still like them

I as a raider fan must say also because It's true the chargers suck.

9 Buccaneers The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a professional American football franchise based in Tampa, Florida. The Buccaneers currently compete in the National Football League as a member team of the National Football Conference South division.

The Buccaneers can't even win with a #1 pick who's supposed to be great. Jameis Winston is a mediocre quarterback. Does he deserve to be a Pro Bouler? Maybe! But the team around him is awful.

Lovie Smith? Are you kidding me? Amongst the worst ever. Worst record in the league and he survives to coach another season.

The Buccaneers are bad. I only know one game they won in. And it was definitely not a super bowl

Can't believe they almost went into the playoffs, they deserve it one day don't they

10 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.

Bills sucked at everything (except for the 4 SBs, but here's the real question, how many did we win? ) and they always will be that way.

The Bills are crap, even though they beat the Jets. Me being a Giants fan Dallas shouldn't be so high, they are one of the best nfc east teams.

4 Times! After 4 times in the super bowl and they still haven't won it yet. That's pretty bad if you ask me

Think about this. The bills lost to the Redskins in the Superbowl. And haven't been back since.

The Contenders
11 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.

As a Dallas Cowboys fan I didn't vote for this team. However they are ONE of the worst of all time as they haven't been a Super Bowl team yet. This team has three NFL championships however the way they are after is bad.

But for real I feel bad for this team when they haven't won a super bowl and has been a team for a long time not like the panthers or the jaguars that have been a team for not even 20 years.

I'm a Eagles fan and I still have to admit there a bad team. Murray left, we sucked. The Eagles team is going downwards. I would personally think that they could get into the playoffs.

I payed no attention to them until my brother became an Eagles fan, then I noticed something; The Eagles are really bad.

12 Redskins The Washington NFL team are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. In 2020, Washington after 87 years got rid of the Redskins trademark due do to it being labeled racist to native culture. It is unknown what name they will be given at this time.

I am so weak at the people saying that the name and logo is racist lmao first of all the American Indians are all dead, second of all, the Indians or "redskins" settled in the state of Virginia.

At least they have 3 titles, and the 91 super bowl winners were recently ranked the top super bowl winners based on stats and toughness of schedule.

They not that bad. Better than the cardinals. At least they won a few Super Bowls. Go skins

Guys. They are in playoffs 2015-2016 be quiet. They earned it fair and square. They don't suck. You do.

13 Titans The Tennessee Titans are a professional American football team based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

I generally do not watch football, but a bandwagon fan I am not. I support my home team! So annoying seeing a Tennessean patriots fan.. Yeah the titans haven't been good for almost 15 years but ya know I still enjoy watching them play and shrug off all the upsets. Its just a sport

They are the poster child of a bad franchise. They were the number 1 seed a few years ago, but they lost their first playoff game. Now they just suck completely. This team is bad when it's bad and bad when it's good.

The Titans had their only chance at a Super Bowl win when they played the Rams. So this means that that yard cost them their history, because they will NEVER go to another super bowl ever again.

I'm a Jaguars fan 2017 (At Least the Jags Are good), And the Titans are Garbage. They can't defeat the Browns without going into overtime! Good thing thet're in the AFC South.

14 Ravens The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division.

Ravens sucked last season but have always been great. They have only been around 20 years and have had so many playoff appearances and ended up winning 2 super bowls. Go ravens!

I like Edgar Allan Poe, but I hate the Ravens. Even though the Browns are worse than this team, that stupid rivalry ruined our lives.

The stupid rival of the Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals. Thanks to that Baltimore for beating Denver last year.

The list is about the WORST NFL team, not the most hated. I'm a ravens fan. but I voted for them because I could type this under them

15 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

San Francisco Forty-WHINERS! You guys should entertain me with another story of one of those ancient Superbowl rings you got and also the one you stole from the Seahawks.

The 49ers are garbage. A 5-11 team and they got smashed by the worst team the 3-13 browns and lost twice to the weak Seahawks.

Who said 49ers suck! They won 4 times more than any team except Steelers who won 6 times.

First off the Seahawks suck as a franchise 49ers are a good historic franchise

16 Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

The Dolphins suck, Jarvis, Wake, and Ndamukong should go to another team that doesn't have a choke quarterback!

Hope Dolphins could go undefeated, even if its 3-0. But, the Pats and Jets always stop them big time.

Dolphins should not be in the worst team in thesis list because they yousto be one of the best teams in the NFL!

I'm a Miami fan and it's hard having dumbass Ravens fan saying "Ravens are better"

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

I love the Cardinals, they are my 4th favorite team after Panthers, Raiders, and Broncos. I hope next season Palmer could lead them to at least 10-0

I live in Nevada, and I think of the cardinals, and next year the Los Angeles rams and possibly the chargers, as my home team.

The Cardinals play well in the regular season except against the Seahawks, but are simply mediocre in the playoffs.

I live near buffalo and I love 2 teams; Bills and Cardinals. Anyone who says the cardinals suck deserves to get shot.

18 Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.

"They haven't won a single Super Bowl" So what? Awesome players? Check! Amazing coach? Check! Fun, friendly mascot? Check! People doing good things? Check, check, and 1,000,000 more checks! They give footballs to young children and support breast cancer awareness! Really, the worst team would actually be the Patriots, considering that they spied on the young team just for a Super Bowl win!

Seriously, I think we are a great teams, better than the patriots or cheatriots. Even though we lost some superbowls, we are still a great team in NFL. Their mascot is so cute and friendly. We will have a superbowl some day.

I despise the panthers and all their bandwagon fans. They will always be the worst team in the nfl. And scam is nothing more than egotistical self absorbed douche.

The panthers lost two games all of last season and blew out the Seahawks in the conference finals. It seems like everyone overlooks that

19 Steelers The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Football League. Pittsburgh Steelers have won the most Super Bowls with 6 which currently stands today.

The steelers have won so much. Despite the loss to the Jaguars in January of 2018, they still live to be in the top 3 greatest NFL team. Leading the NFL superbowls with 6 wins. Especially Le'Veon Bell, Ben Roethlisberger, and Antonio Brown are the most likely to compete as a game player. However, due to the fact that they all are very professional, they may not get picked as much as the terrible people. Like Tom Brady, because he cheated few times. Once they deflated they're ball so Brady could throw further, then they increased the amount of time until they had a flag. The only reason they lost the division to the Jaguars is because Ryan Shaizer got paralyzed during the throw. Luckily Brady loxt the superbowl. So did the Jaguars. They had a terrible game. Except for the Steelers versus Jaguars game. Unnecessary for the Steelers to lose to such a terrible team. I still believe that the Pittsburgh Steelers are the greatest team the NFL has got playing in those stadiums. Like if you ...more

How the heck are the Steelers number?!?! I am a huge Steelers fan and I agree that they should be on the list, but totally not number 1. I also don't agree that the Colts, Cowboys, Broncos, and Packers should be on this list.

Steelers have won 6 super bowls. 19 division tittles. 25 playoff appearances. Most regular season wins since 1970 in the NFL. 15 AFC conference championship appearances. The most. How are the Steelers in this list.

The steelers are the best team of all time why are they on here since 1933 the have been good terry, mean joe, lambert, jack ham, lynn swann, john Stallworth, mel blount, big ben, hines ward, antonio brown, levion bell and heath miller the steelers are awesome talk about legends and future hall of famers

20 Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

I look forward to the post-Cutler era. Defense needs tremendous work. Defense wins championships!
Jay Cutler is not a good enough QB to bring the team back from 3+ touchdown deficits.
It's asking a lot but it would be very cool if the Bears could be a kick-ass team for their centennial season in 2020...

I really think Jay Cutler is doing better than usually, but really every year he does it where he gets us all believing we can do it! Then... Showing us not to keep our hopes up.

You guys know that the Chicago Bears were the first season ever to get a perfect season. They even blew out the patriots at the super bowl 46-10

Jay Cutler needs to move on and pursue the Miami Dolphins, wish him all the best. It's unforunate he didn't work out in the windy city. -LOYAL BEARS FAN.

21 Seahawks The Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football franchise based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference West division.

No, actually nobody agrees with you. I saw that you were flying the plane of attempt-at-popularity and shot it down with an AA gun I got from Richard Sherman. Next thing you know, the plane crashed in Loner Island where your mortal soul is forever tormented by the angry screams of pissed-off Bronco fans and the Bronco players. "Where was your oh-so-special quarterback then? " Asks a man from Seattle? You are now on the ground crying in despair, waiting for someone to join your side. 47 years, it has been since you ever brought this up, and yet, nobody has liked your comment or tried to save you from Loner Island. I have made my point. -A Seattleite.

By being a Broncos fan, I hate the Seahawks, and to me they're the luckiest team in the Nfl because they were down 16-0 at halftime against Green Bay, and they should've lost big time, but no. Then the Vikings down 9-0, then they got so lucky that the Vikings missed that field goal so they could win.

The Seahawks are not a bad team. They crushed the Broncos in Super Bowl 48. And the only reason they lost Super Bowl 49 is because the Patriots cheated. And they even made it to the playoffs in the 2015-16 season. A bunch of their players even made it to the pro bowl in 2016.

Ok, first of all, I know, this team has stupid amounts of luck. That luck dropped when the lost to the Patriots. I hate the Patriots by heart, and will forever hate them so I completely think that that win should have gone to the Seahawks. I completely disagree that this is a bad team.

22 Broncos The Denver Broncos are an American football team based in Denver, Colorado. The Broncos compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

I love Peyton Manning and that entire team because they are a defense that Brady can't face, and remember the Packers at Broncos game during week 8, I went to that game and everyone thought that the Packers were destined to win, but we destroyed them, and the Packers lost as many games as they had won when undefeated. So its safe to say that the Broncos are awesome.

Broncos are awesome and super bowl 48 was a mess up and we had 8 points by the way. Besides we can just beat all your favorite football teams. We have Peyton Manning, Emmanual Sanders, Demaryius Thomas, Owen Daniels, Louis Vasquez, C.J. anderson, Evan Mathis, DeMarcus Ware, T.J. ward, Von Miller, the other Brandon Marshall, Danny Trevathan, Chris Harris Jr., Aqib Talib, Bradley Roby, Shane Ray, Brandon McManus, Britton Colquitt, Wes Welker, and David Bruton Jr. Once we lose Peyton Manning our scout John Elway will just go out and get some awesome QB and we will be a super bowl team AGAIN!

Nothing but a media team! This team has many ignorant fans, so what they beat the Panthers in Super Bowl 50, they beat the pathetic Falcons, and beat the Packers by the skin of their teeth. Overall this team sucks with five super bowl losses, which were all blowouts, after having "good" seasons.

Yes, while I would like to point out some highlights about Superbowl 48 on their part:... sorry, couldn't think of any. What was that big fat 0 supposed to mean on the broncos score? Oh, yeah, FAILURE! AHAHA!

23 Rams The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team based in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Rams are my favorite in that division, they beats the Seahawks 2 times and mesa hates SEAHAWKS

This is wrong. The rams are actually pretty good.

The Rams are the best my favorite team go rams!

This is a weird team they beat the good tems but lose to the bad teams

24 Giants The New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

I am a true Giants fan the Giants definitely do not suck, without Eli Manning Tom Brady would have won 6 super bowls and the 2016 Dallas Cowboys would have been probably 16-0 instead they are probably going to go 14-2.

They are going to go 11-5 and will lose the division to the eagles, and will lose in the playoffs to the eagles. Lets go eagles

True this team beat the Patriots twice, but other than these two lucky years they have nothing to show for.

I love the New York Giants.I have only been a big fan for 4 months and I have a jersey and a hat of them.I am from New York and my cousin and uncle love them.So I disagree on this.But they rule that's all.

25 Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

That stupid madden curse ruined there chance in the super bowl but they are not the worst team the game vs the packers the y were missing all the good players and all that matt guy threw too is tyreek hill they lost so many people I had some hope but that backup is trash

You might be a bad team if you haven't even appeared in a super bowl since 1969

The chiefs might not be the best team but there doing really good

WHAT Alex smith cannot throw the deep ball a lick
