Worst Seasons by an NFL Team

The Top Ten
1 2008 Lions

By far the wosrt season, losing every game and along the second most points all time, however jdsoaresfamily2 you are wrong, they actually won their full pre-season and were considered early playoff favorites.

The worst of the worst. Possibly the worst franchise in all pro sports since 1960 sunk to an all-time low in 2008 (0-16). And the stench of the Matt Millen era will linger for a couple more years.

To lose a majority of games is one thing, it becomes one hell of a feat to lose every single game in the season and setting a new record in the progress.

I just don't get how you can vote otherwise... Worst record ever pretty much speaks for itself in my opinion.

2 1976 Buccaneers

Even know this was the start of this team they almost lost 2 seasons in a row yeah it's badd I think it's worse than the Detroit Lions team

They were a first-year expansion team, so I guess they have an "excuse", unlike the Lions.

For 2 consecutive seasons they only won like 2 games

I'll never forget that team...

3 2017 Browns

(Sarcasm alert) Congrats Cleveland you have completed a perfect season! You’ve made history! Congrats on joining the other elite team known as the 2008 Lions! This has to be one of the biggest accomplishments in the last decade for you guys. You should hang a banner to honor your accomplishment!

Horrible QB situation, weak offense, mediocre defense, and a horrble coach. Every week, it wasn't whether they would lose or not, it was by how much. It doesn't get much worse than this.

The journey to joining the 08 Lions perhaps this time without Joe Thomas its very possible.

After a promising draft Cleveland has joined the 2008 Lions on being 0-16.

4 2007 Dolphins

It was kind of funny just listening to guys ask "is this the week the dolphins finally win a game? "

I still have respect but this was bad.

Never seen them that much.

*cough, cough* Let's not say anything about that.

5 2016 Browns

They haevn't won a game in a year and a half...Something has to be wrong with theh management,it's that simple.

Fire the lot of them and start over,Couldn't do any worse then they are doing now. - They did better when they first started back.

As a Browns fan I am a bit shocked to not see them on here at least three times

At least they had one win

6 1942 Lions
7 1990 Patriots

Oof. The Non Brady Era

8 2009 Rams

Don't remember.

9 1980 Saints

Ain't being the Aints ever again hopefully for them.

That's when the Saints became the Aints

They are called the "Aints" for a reason

10 2000 Chargers

Ryan Leaf as QB. Jermaine Fezande leads the team in rushing with only 368 yards... I think that's enough to qualify this team as the worst team ever. I don't think any team in NFL History has ever shown as much offensive inepetness as the 2000 San Diego Chargers

This time just started getting fans they were so bad

The Contenders
11 1960 Cowboys

Long before they we're America's Team. They we're just an expansion team. Oh yeah, Tom Landry was the head coach along with players like Eddie LeBaron, rookies Don Meredith and Don Perkins. The Cowboys only bright spot in their winless season was a exciting 31-31 tie against the New York Giants at Yankee Stadium. Otherwise this team gave up 48 points in a game against the Cleveland Browns, and yet this team we're never shutout but didn't win a game either (0-11-1).
Its Joeysworld

12 1991 Colts
13 1989 Cowboys

Cowboys suck

14 2001 Panthers

the panthers were the only team to lose 15 straight in one season, until the lions, they deserve to be much higher on this list

15 2006 Raiders

Raiders are my favorite team even they won four games

They play like this every season

Even if record wise they arent the worst that team was a trainwreck full of egomaniacs and a guy who hadnt coached since the early 90s

16 1973 Oilers

This is a hockey team not a damn football team

Houston Oilers, not Edmonton Oilers

17 2002 Texans
18 2012 Chiefs

Let’s not mention that season.

19 1995 Jets

Led the Eagles late in the fourth quarter and blew the lead and lost,

20 2008 Rams
21 2014 Raiders
22 1971 Bills
23 2005 Saints
24 2004 49ers
25 1982 Colts
