Top Ten Worst NFL Football Teams


The Top Ten

1 Browns 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 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

The Browns actually were pretty good way back when. Back when they didn't have super bowls, the browns would make it to the playoffs all the time. But then they brought their team to Baltimore and created the Ravens. Now the team sucks really badly. - Icantbelieveitsnotbutter

I think the Cleveland browns are the worst team in the NFL other worst NFL teams is the Tennessee titans and the Miami dolphins and the Tampa bay buccaneers and the Jacksonville jagewiers and the Atlanta falcons good teams in the NFL are the Houston Texans the New York jets the New York giants my opinion a percentage of people don't have to agree my name for who type this comment typing is Christine Kelly

The browns have not won a championship sense 1955.they have more losing records than winning in the past 30 years.trash team right guys.

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

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.

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 wouldn't be surprised that in 1000 years, the Jaguars will still remain the worst team. - Rocke4

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.

3 Lions 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.

They are my favorite team they are beast but calvin is gone next year lions fans will miss you calvin you're the bomb we lost to much suh now calvin wish we had every good players on their team next year then barry sanders can lead them to the play offs or even the super bowl

Three postseasons and only one playoff win in 58 years. Only team to never win a game for the entire season. Most importantly the outlook for this team remains the same as their history suggests.

This is Christine Kelly again another worst team in the NFL too I forgot to type down is the Detroit lions the Detroit lions is another worst team in the NFL my opinion again

I am by far one of the Detroit Lions' biggest fans and their current record right now in the NFL as of 2016 season is 8-4! We're the first in NFC North and we have a good lead! With Justin Forsett on the team, and Tate III and Eric EBron and Darius Slay Jr. and Stafford, we're doing amazing! By far, Browns are the worst team, let's be real

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

This dumb team always does poor with Rex Ryan. Should Ryan be fired?

Those afc games were not because of defense sanchez was great his first two seasons and he had good receivers those seasons

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?

Giants will defeat the jets every time. How many Super Bowls do they have? Oh yeah. NONE

5 Raiders Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. 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.

The raiders might not be the number one seed but they went from a 3-13 team to a 7-9 team so there getting there. Go raiders

The raiders aren't that bad their my second favorite team

This team will be great again some day.

The Oakland raiders suck, their quarterback broke his leg and the coach had a tear rolling down his cheek, that should tell you something

6 Patriots Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region.

I'm a Giants fan. I hate the Patriots. But are you kidding? The Patriots are NOT the worst team in the league. - Inart

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!

BOO Patriots. They cheat and don't love their country like regular patriots are supposed to.

Thank god tom Brady is going to retire soon

7 Cowboys Cowboys

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?

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.

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

Actually the poll is titled The Top Ten Worst NFL Teams. I have hardcore Cowboys fans for friends and are a source of extra income. They have the same sad chant they had for the past 20 years "There's always next year". All I have to do is tell one of them the Cowboys will lose. They say the Cowboys will win, I reply "bet you 20 bucks they will lose" I then walk away with 20 extra dollars - Johnnyt800

Because F@&% the Cowboys

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

A good team, but they don't always win

The Chargers, the worst team in the NFL. Why? Because every year is a year where the Broncos, Raiders, or the Chiefs win the division. The Chargers are always at the bottom. This team, cannot get ANYTHING together. They made the Raiders, Jaguars, and even the Titans look good. Now, all of the fans are bandwagon LT veterans who just left for the Panthers or the Raiders. - Tacocheese

I love the Chargers the reason why we may be losing is because our lineman don't know the proper way to block so poor Philip Rivers gets sacked

5 playoff wins in the SuperBowl Era

9 Buccaneers Buccaneers

The longest losing streak in the NFL despite winning the Super Bowl in 2002

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

The buccs in 2011 where an a amazing team. But they changed the coach and cost the list and hasn't did good since but 2016 season has changed you never know guys
I'm a buccs fan

10 49ers 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

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

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

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.

They are awesome 5 superbowl wins

The Contenders

11 Bills 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.

People forget about this team when voting... That's how bad they are

This team needs more vote, they're terrible.

This is Christine again another good team in the NFL is the buffalo bills my opinion on all the NFL teams I think is good a percentage of people don't have to agree

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

12 Redskins Redskins The Washington Redskins are a professional American football team based in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area.

I'm a Reds fan, but I have to admit, they are terrible.

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 like that team and they made it to the playoffs I hope they go to the Superbowl at least they are better than the Cowboys

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.

13 Titans 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.

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.

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. - Hajj

I'm sorry Titans fans but your team is in fact the worst team I've ever seen.

If their teens then I can shout teen titans go

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

This team is actually pretty good

The Rams are the best my favorite team go rams!

They can play good sometimes

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

15 Eagles

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.

You were somehow worse with Murray than in 2014, when you were cheated out of the playoffs. But then again, that may have been because of injuries. Also, you look like a team on the rebound so far. - JackMM

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

16 Seahawks 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.

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.

This is a truly good team. This team is the greatest fear of Broncos fans and a team that can reliably push the Patriots to the limits. Seattle should be the number one ranked team in the league.

This list was made a long time ago because this team is the best - Eminem50CentFanForLife

The seahawks are the best team in the league

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

Come on, even if the Panthers didn't win Super Bowl 50, we were still one of the best NFL teams that season.

"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! - tiffanyfrozen5110

Panthers are a great with great players. I know they haven't won a super bowl yet but their a really young team. Cam Newton is a beast.

All I am going to say is, I HATE GLORY HUNTERS, yes I know now EVERYONE is loving the panthers because they are winning every game now...

18 Ravens 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.

The ravens have a powerful defense and are so better than those stupid steelers

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!

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

The ravens are the best team ever

19 Bears 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 hate the Bears, I'm a fan of Packers and Lions, and the bears suck. Cutler is a piece of crap, he even plays like crap

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.

Cutler has brought this team to a sucking streak and not to dis the head coach but lovey smith was the only coach to take the bears all the way and the buccaneers used to suck but thanks to lovey smith they could go all the way

I hate the Bears well its not really there fault it's there couches there just not comfortable GO Broncos

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

All I want for Christmas is for the Giants to be in the Super Bowl, the super bowl, the super bowl, all I want for Christmas is for them to go to the super bowl, and that is all I want for Christmas

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

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.

The Giants were pretty good this year! I mean they beat the Dallas Cowboys TWICE! And Dallas is the best! - sabrinacorbrinajoshaya

I am a big fan of the giants cause of odell beckham jr eli manning victor cruz and jason pierre paul come on like who does not like them
