Top Ten Worst NFL Franchises

The Top Ten
1 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.

I have been a Packer fan my whole life, I always ask myself, "Ooh the Bears might be good this year, I don't know about the Vikings." I don't even have to think about the Detroit Lions. Detroit is among the four teams that have never even been to a Super Bowl, along with #3, #5, and wait one sec... The Jags are all the way down at 12? God this list is messed up, Anyway, The Lions aren't only bad, they have awful luck! 0-16! That's like impossible! So that's why Detroit is the worst.

The Jaguars have won 7 playoff games since their inception in 1995. The Lions have won only 1 playoff game in the Super Bowl era. The Jaguars have played in 3 conference championship games since 1995, and the Lions have only played in 1 since the Super Bowl began after the 1966 season. The Jaguars, often considered a terrible franchise, have accomplished far more in their short existence than the Lions have accomplished in the last 50 plus years.

When the Lions lost to the Cowboys in the 2014 playoffs due to a miss pass interference call, my first response was "who cares it's the Detroit Lions! If it was the 49ers, Packers or Giants then it would be a controversy. A week later, a no catch that cost the Cowboys a possible win in Greenbay is still a topic today because both Franchises mean something. Point is Detroit sucks and should relocate with a new complete name and uniform.

I have cheered for the Lions since I was 10 years old in 1957, when they won their last championship in the pre Superbowl era. As one of the oldest NFL franchises, they have just plain damn stunk. I will continue to be a Lions fan because I simply don't know any better.

2 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.

The Cleveland Browns who did anything are now the Baltimore Ravens, this Browns franchise has had 2 winning seasons in 20 years, they are the undisputed worst franchise in the NFL.

At least Detroit has good seasons (rarely) and the Best Running Back of all time. This? I bet McDonalds could win a SuperBowl before this team.

They are actually not that bad. They were a really good team when the franchise was created. They be at least the 10th worst.

Year in and year out embarassment of the program. Cleveland is the factory of sadness. Our motto is "just wait til next season"

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

Arizona is #1 because Detroit actually has good football history. The Cards do not!

The Cardinals have at least been to a super bowl, unlike the Lions.

At least they have Hopkins now.

Two playoff wins in 88 seasons.

4 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 team is a total train wreck that's not going anywhere anytime soon.People forget about the team. That is how bad they are.Everything is messed up about this joke that the city of Buffalo calls their NFL team even the name of the franchise is confusing as hell.Name is referring to Buffalo Bill Cody who has nothing to do with the city of Buffalo itself but they did not take advantage of the Browns mistake of naming after a person.

They need to work on their QBs. I think Manuel is horrible according to Dad. Will these brats get in the playoffs?

Lost 4 Super Bowls in a row. Need I say more?

This team is just garbage.

5 Cincinnati Bengals The Cincinnati Bengals are a professional American football franchise based in Cincinnati, Ohio. The Bengals currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference North division.

In the late 1960's, an ownership group led by Paul Brown set about the create a new football team in the image of the Cleveland Browns. Unfortunately, they succeeded, and thus, the Bungals were created.

Founded by Paul Brown to replicate Cleveland and they are a sorry Franchise just like Cleveland!

I know folks like to pile on the Browns but they won championships while the Bengals never have.

They did make two super bowls, but not historically good, Burrows bound to be an improvement.

6 Seattle 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.

You don't beat a team that bad and it be a reffing error sorry but that's just not a legitimate claim! Although they aren't usually good, they definitely aren't the worst! I think that title goes to the Jags! They are consistently terrible!

Theyve gone to the playoffs pretty much every year since '76 (their first season), have won two NFC championships, and dominated a Super Bowl against statistically the second best offense of all time. AND, they are still 20 to 70 years younger then 4/5 of the NFL...

One super bowl doesn't mean any thing and this is all time the seahawks have built a losing reputation.

Wonder where this franchise will move to?

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

Best thing this franchise has down in a long time was firing that blowhard Rex Ryan. What an embarrassment he was/is. Better question - why did Buffalo ever sign this buffoon to coach their team?

Jets! Mets! Two 2nd Class, 3rd World Franchise that will never equal the Giants & Yankees. To give them a chance change the name to the New Jersey Jets, Newark Jets, Garden State Jets or Turnpike Titans!

Come on this team is way better than the horrible bills.

Butt fumble says it all. No explanation needed

8 Kansas City 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.

Should not be on this list. Not bad not good, still in the middle.

They are good now.

9 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.

I'd rather crap my pants than watch Matt Ryan throw picks all day. They've really never been good. 1 super bowl appearance that's about it. Vikings should of gone that year anyway.

In 1998, I personally placed a 50 year curse because of the annoying dirty bird dance. Definition of beating a dead horse!

Super Bowl 51. Enough said

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

Please don't hate the Jags they have the best mascot ever. His name is Jaxson de Vile and he is really funny. Go to a Jags game now. I love the Jags they are one of my favorite teams. They have the best logo in the NFL. I really hate it like hell when people hate my team. It makes me sad. Every Jags fan is a good person. Our team will rebuild and get revenge on all of the teams that beat us. They are going to win a Super Bowl. They are going to win the rest of the Super Bowls. In 2050, everyone who is an NFL fan will be a Jaguars fan. GO JAGUARSSS #JAGUARS

This season was the best in Jags history. That really says something about this sorry ass franchise.

Suck so bad. Always bad never good. I feel bad for Jaguars fans.

Cheap version of a Panther, so they rightfully should suck.

The Contenders
11 Houston Texans The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

A couple years ago, I wrote the comment about the Texans' future starting to look bright. Back then, I didn't imagine that they would go on to dismantle their roster and alienate their all-star quarterback. They could have been a contender for years to come, and they threw it all away.

This is possibly the most mediocre team I have ever seen. Barely ever making the playoffs, and when they do make it, they suck all hope their fans had. Every time they made the second round, its because they either played the Bengals or an injured raiders teams. When they do make it, they get completely curb stomped by teams like the patriots and the ravens when Flacco didn't suck. Oh and their quaterback trail of tears is funny as all hell

The Texans have struggled quite a bit in their short history, but their future is starting to look bright.

12 Tampa Bay 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 bucs ruled the late 90s and early 2000s with the best defense in the league but their worst enemy was philadelphia they have been to the playoffs multiple times.

With the exception of a 5 year span in late 90's-02 this franchise has always stunk since their first season.

They almost went two full seasons with no win. And those two years were there first two. They suck

13 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.

You have Joe Frazier Mike Schmidt, Chuck Bednarik, Dr. J and so many other sports icons in Philadelphia, but these morons have a statue of a fictional character Rocky Balboa. Simply because of this, the Eagles will never win a Super Bowl.
Whats more disturbing is that the Eagles and their Fans are always flapping their gums and haven't won Jack! Redskins won 3 Super Bowls, Giants 4, Cowboys 5, Philadelphia until you win, shut your pie hole!

There are three things in this world that you can ALWAYS count on.

1. Death
2.Taxes
3. Philadelphia Eagles not winning the Super Bowl

After the CUBS won the World Series, I said "We'll just maybe they could win" however we are taking the Eagles here...LOL Love it.

They were started by the government and like everything else that the government does, they are sub-par.

What a laughing stock the Eagles are. Chip the dip Kelly is a bust. All philly sports are a joke at best.

14 Oakland 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. ...read more.

Oakland sucks. They will suck from here on out. The Denver Broncos should be ranked at most 25. This is the dumbest list.

I though they taught their kids 4-12,1-15, 3-13, and 2-14. That's the raiders every year.

How do Raiders fans teach their kids to count?
0-1
0-2
0-3
0-4
0-5
...

The raiders are good!

15 Carolina Panthers

Dabbing, the only notable this team will ever be known for.

They have never won a superbowl and they average only 6 wins a seasons

16-0? That mean anything?

16 San Diego 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.

Never won anything in post merger NFL. Number one draft picks do not want to there (remember Eli manning), San Diego doesn't want them, Los Angeles doesn't want them, even London does not want them. Can't win, won't win ever. It is a developmental team for NFL they never pay their players examples Seau, Tomlinson, Brees, Sproles, Rodney Harrison, and the list goes on and on.

17 New Orleans Saints The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

The Saints are like smoke and mirrors. The success in 2017-2018 isn't real. The Defense is possibly the worst in the NFC.

One conference title game appearance in 41 seasons.

This team is good

Too bad this team had too cheat to win a super bowl, they should take away that SB trophy and give it to the vikings

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

They can't make it up to first place, they don't have an good QB, and they loss 2 superbowls.must I say more?

19 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.

Only good thing they had was...well I don't even know.

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

The owner puts minimal in and pulls out a profit each year. Great from a R.O.I business standpoint, but awful from a winning or fan standpoint.

Garbage franchise... They should be regulated out of the league- as long as the owner makes a profit he will continue to operate like this...
Garbage franchise!

Dude, the Dolphins last championships were in the early 1970s.

21 Washington 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.

The most inept team since 1990. Dan Snyder is the worst owner in sports. Total mess.

Pathetic more and more each year. Riches to rags story. What a mess!

22 Denver 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.

The only good thing they had going was Peyton Manning and Wes Welker.

23 New England 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.

"Basically cheated in all their Super Bowls." Please explain this comment, as I'm having trouble determining truth with my bull radar going "bing bing bing."

24 Chicago 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.

They are horrible lately

Super bowl shuffle!

25 Tennessee 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.

They have bad seasons, mediocre seasons, and good seasons. In the good seasons, they lose in the playoffs in the first game. They are awful. Stuck in a loop of mediocrity. No hope for the future.

What is this? This franchise should easily fall in top 10.

The team that no one remembers because they never do good ever
