Top 10 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. The Detroit Lions are one of the four teams to have never been to a Super Bowl, and also one of the two teams in history to go 0-16.

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.

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. The Cleveland Browns are one of the four teams to have never been to a Super Bowl, and one of two teams to go 0-16.

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.

As of now the Browns chances of winning this years Super Bowl are so hilariously bad, it's amazing that they haven't fired their coach yet. They have a 1000/1 chance of winning the Super Bowl. How bad is it? The second worst team, Chicago Bears has a 500/1 chance.

If they losing all their games if they keep up like this plus their preseason games then this could be the worst team the NFL has ever seen, possibly worse then the 08' Lions!

3 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

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

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

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?

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?

5 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.

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.

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

6 Las Vegas 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. In 2020, the Raiders relocated from Oakland, California to Las Vegas.

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

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 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.

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.

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

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

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 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

9 Los Angeles 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.

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!

10 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.

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!

The Contenders
11 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.

Awful. Fewer playoff wins in their entire franchise history than Ben Roethlisberger. That's one player in their division that has had more success than their whole team.

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.

Why are we this low? As a Bengals fan, I admit that we suck. 27th worst though? That's 6th best! 0 Super Bowl Wins. Worst Management in NFL. Longest Playoff Win Drought. Never Won a Playoff Game under the ownership of Mike Brown. We are wasting AJ Green and Joe Mixon. We suck and, apparantly, are proud!

12 Washington Commanders The Washington Commanders 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 to it being labeled racist to native culture. It was named the Washington Football Team until February 2022, when the team was renamed the Washington Commanders.

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.

I love these guys, but we haven't made it to the semifinal since the 90s. We might not be as bad as the Browns, Jaguars, Buccs, or Jets, but we suck.

The Re-Skins have a terrible field and ownership cares more about the money then winning.

13 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.

How come half of the people that say they hate the cowboys don't know how to use correct grammar? Also why are all of their insults "The cowboys SUCK" or "Hey look it's the COWGIRLS". I mean why can't they come up with something original. I know you're 10 year old sitting behind your computer but you can still at least look up how to use correct spelling and sentences. Also don't say the cowboys suck just because their stadium is bigger and more people show up to their games.

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?

14 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.

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.

15 Baltimore 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.

16 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!

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.

17 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.

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.

The team that no one really remembers about cause they don't have fun games other then being owned by Aaron Rodgers.

18 San Francisco 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.

An amazing football history here. Some of the best players to ever play the game came from San Fran.

19 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.

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.

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

I'm only cheering for them to win the Super Bowl because the Patriots suck. Overall, their team isn't all that bad this year. But once again, they could go back to being 2-14 like 2009 all over again.

This is wrong. The rams are actually pretty good.

The Rams are the best my favorite team go rams!

21 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.

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!

22 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.

Chiefs deserve to be #1 worst team next year.

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

23 Pittsburgh 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 agree. By the way, like if you dislike the Patriots.

24 Green Bay Packers The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. The Packers have won 4 super bowls and 13 NFL championships.

This team is baller swag. If you hate the Packers, I have a pamphlet for you for a mental illness hospital. And 1996 Super Bowl, and Super Bowls 50, 51, and 52

They're success over the last 50 years is all luck. No skill. There is magic in that snow because their teams suck.

Even though I like the Packers, they kinda suck, I mean the Packers lost as many games as undefeated.

25 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.

Really? The Vikings would have lost against the Colts in the Super Bowl, and that tired Vikings fan knows it. The bounty stuff has been going on for years. Yes, the Saints invented the bounty system (sarcasm). The Saints were the first team to get nailed for it. You would have to rescind a lot more SB trophies if you're going to take New Orleans trophy. idiot

For everyone talking about the bounty scandal, it was proven that the bounty scandal didn't even exist. It was just John Vilma and the defensive coordinator (whose name I can't quite remember).

You saints fans are probably disappointed the saints are on the list, but lemme explain something: there are 32 teams in the NFL. The saints are #29. There we go, I hope that makes your feelings better.
