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. 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.

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

The browns are the defacto lolcow of the league

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

When you think of the jaguars, one thing comes to mind: laugh out loud! Who even watches the jaguars? The only time you watch them is when your team is playing the them. The only good thing about the jaguars is that they let your team win when the jaguars play them.

I’m not a Jaguars fan, but to be fair, they made the playoffs at 10-6 in 2017 and nearly won the AFC Championship.

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. more.

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.

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.

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

The lions aren’t a bad team. Stafford is a solid QB, their defense Is OK, and they have a handful of offensive talents as well. They aren’t going to he super bowl any time soon because of teams like the packers and Seahawks

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?

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

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

I don’t know, I’ve just heard bad things.

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

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.

This team will be great again some day.

6 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

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

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 anyone

V 20 Comments
7 Patriots 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 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!

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!

Lol... triggered Atlanta and Seattle fans much? I’m from New England and the pats are so good that we get furious when we don’t win a Super Bowl. PS: We have won 5 and Brady is the GOAT

8 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

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.

9 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. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

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

Bills can't even win one Superbowl because the "Wind all ways takes it " said a bills fan they are pathetic because they lost 4 superbowls in arow

10 Buccaneers Buccaneers

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

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

I'm surprised they aren't first! - railfan99

The Contenders

11 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.

Hey...They are doing pretty good this year

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 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.

V 21 Comments
12 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

My dad hates the Seahawks so I guess I hate them too._. - PokemonRPGbro

13 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 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.

14 49ers 49ers The San Francisco 49ers are a professional American football team located in the San Francisco Bay Area.

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

The guy with one like is garbage the Seahawks are one the best teams in the nfl!

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

15 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 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.

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

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

Michael turbesky is rocking it

16 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.

Somebody take eagles off this list they won super bowl 52

17 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

V 22 Comments
18 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

They can play good sometimes

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

19 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.

I am a Panthers fan hence the name. But 2001 was BAD! - PanthersFTWpatriotsFTL

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

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

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

Brandyn sucks

21 Chiefs 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.

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

Chiefs suck without Alex Smith

THE KC Chiefs are the greatest NFL football team ever

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

I am a huge Miami fan, and they have no reason to be on the worst team list. Seriously, you idiots are putting the only undefeated team in NFL history on the worst team list? Smarten up, the 72' dolphins are the best roster in football history, so take them off the list. Sure they aren't too good now, but they are a young team at the moment, with a lot of potential.

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

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

23 Texans 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.

Only positive is Watt, Dallas will always rule Texas.

Excuse me! The Texans are way better than a lot of football teams. JJ swat!

The only way how to be good is to go to a superbowl. I mean the Titans always sucked, and they still lost in a superbowl, better than us then.

The Texans suck they will never even play in the super bowl jj watt sucks and the Texans will never be good

24 Vikings 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.

Vikings may suck at times but man can they kick butt, they have been winning this season haven't they?

As someone from Minnesota I can easily tell you that the Vikings suck. Yes they have been to a couple Super Bowls but whenever they do they get steamrolled by the other team.

The Vikings are a horrible team. They haven't even won a super bowl. They don't have the greatest team but one day I bet they will win a super bowl.

The Vikings, Saints, Steelers, Patriots, Giants, Packers, Ravens and Eagles don't belong on this list. - PokemonRPGbro

25 Broncos 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.

Who says the Broncos suck, they beat the Pats TWICE, the Panthers, the Packers, and the Bengals. And those are all playoff teams

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.

There amazing

26 Bengals 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.

I used to say choking at the end of games was pulling a dallas cowboys. But after the steelers - bengals game, I call it pulling a cincinnati.

How are bengals not the best at not being the best at being the best at not being the best.!

The Bengals are the best they are doing really good

27 Colts Colts The Indianapolis Colts are an American football team based in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Colts compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

Without Luck, they are nothing, remember the Jaguars game, what was the score again 51-16

Do not agree. This is the worst ranking ever

What You are dum for thinking the Colts are better tan the Steelers!

28 Steelers 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, COlts, Chargers, Broncos, Lions, Buccaneers, Packers, and Seahawks don't belong on here. And why don't you have the Jaguars on here? They are the worst team ever. - Alpha101

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 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

Awful line they get lucky for being in a weak division

29 Saints 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).

Why are the Saints up here, they are just SO BAD, I mean 7-9 common you're as good as the Raiders, I mean who cares if you face a hard division, you has to does better

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. - PokemonRPGbro

30 Packers 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.

When you first start typing it says share your OPINION and my opinion is ya the Packers are a good team but so are the Vikings and do you people think that the people that pick the teams would pick the teams that aren't the best if they didn't think they had talent?

The packers rule man they won the first and second super bowl and the super bowl vs the steelers in 2010

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

Glad the Packers are #30 rather than in the top ten. Remember this if you think the Patriots are better than the Packers however.
Championships: Packers- 13 Patriots- 5

31 Cardinals 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

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

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 suck and it paine to say that

Hate Matt Ryan, love Julio Jones, Panthers could win them any day.

BO Falcons, so what if my mom used to live in Atlanta and was a Falcons fan, the Falcons still suck.

They have a terrible quarterback

Falcons suck
