Top Ten Worst NFL Franchises
The Top Ten
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.
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.
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.
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.
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. - AnimeSportsFan619
They are actually not that bad. They were a really good team when the franchise was created. They be at least the 10th worst.
There front office must be on drugs. All these top draft picks and they can't get anything right - SOX3005
The Cardinals have at least been to a super bowl, unlike the Lions.
2015 super bowl champs!
Arizona is #1 because Detroit actually has good football history. The Cards do not!
Two playoff wins in 88 seasons. - mikeman317
This team is just garbage.
MY DOG LOVES THE BILLS I LOVE THE PACKERS
Lost 4 Super Bowls in a row. Need I say more?
16 and counting
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.
I know folks like to pile on the Browns but they won championships while the Bengals never have.
Founded by Paul Brown to replicate Cleveland and they are a sorry Franchise just like Cleveland!
Just need new ownership... Paul is rolling over in he's grave!
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!
They suck they only won the super bowl for 2013-2014 is because the referees Refed the game wrong and they even admitted that
One super bowl doesn't mean any thing and this is all time the seahawks have built a losing reputation.
Doesn't mean anything?...okay...12 of 32 NFL teams have never won a Super Bowl. Houston Texans (0-0), Jacksonville Jaguars (0-0), Detroit Lions (0-0), Cleveland Browns (0-0), Arizona Cardinals (0-1), Tennessee Titans (0-1), Los Angeles Chargers (0-1), Atlanta Falcons (0-2), Carolina Panthers (0-2), Cincinnati Bengals (0-2), Buffalo Bills (0-4), Minnesota Vikings (0-4). - liquidswords03
May be good currently but as a franchise not so much
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!
Butt fumble says it all. No explanation needed
Come on this team is way better than the horrible bills.
Should not be on this list. Not bad not good, still in the middle.
Didn't make the superbowl since 1969
THEY SUCK.. TAKE AWAY A GOOD PLAYOFF POSITION FROM A TAM THAT ATUALLY INTENDS ON WINNING. MOHOMES IS A CRSS BREED FREAK. #MAGA
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!
I'm A SAINTS FAN THIS IS MY RIVAL
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.
Cheap version of a Panther, so they rightfully should suck.
Suck so bad. Always bad never good. I feel bad for Jaguars fans. - jaguars
The Texans have struggled quite a bit in their short history, but their future is starting to look bright.
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
They suck and in from houston
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
They have only been in the playoffs once
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.
What a laughing stock the Eagles are. Chip the dip Kelly is a bust. All philly sports are a joke at best.
They were started by the government and like everything else that the government does, they are sub-par.
Philadelphia is a sad sports city.
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!
How do Raiders fans teach their kids to count?
Oakland sucks. They will suck from here on out. The Denver Broncos should be ranked at most 25. This is the dumbest list.
In five years they only made it once to the playoffs but they're getting better by the minute
I though they taught their kids 4-12,1-15, 3-13, and 2-14. That's the raiders every year.
they one once big deal like seriously you were in for so long and that's it
They have crap in important positional players
This team is good
One conference title game appearance in 41 seasons. - mikem
Dabbing, the only notable this team will ever be known for.
16-0? That mean anything?
They have never won a superbowl and they average only 6 wins a seasons
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.
No Superbowl for these choke artists, I would put them in top 5
Only good thing they had was...well I don't even know.
Consistently suck...serial choke-artists
Have a history of coming up short
THEY'RE NOT IN ST LOUIS ANYMORE!
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?
This man clearly forgot Elway, Sharpe and Davis ON THE SAME TEAM!
The only good thing they had going was Peyton Manning and Wes Welker.
They have had so many good seasons. Why are they on this list
Denver is a good team but however they loss 6 superbowls.
Dude, the Dolphins last championships were in the early 1970s.
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...
KILL IT KILL IT WITH FIRE.
Also not to mention they've cheated to get to the super bowl on at least one occasion. - Incontrollable9_YT
"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." - AlGalaxy
I'm not a hater of the pats but they basically cheated in all there superbowls and they have a awful history
Pathetic more and more each year. Riches to rags story. What a mess!
The most inept team since 1990. Dan Snyder is the worst owner in sports. Total mess.
Hands down the worst run NFL franchise in the last 10 years
Super bowl shuffle!
They are horrible lately
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. - Hajj
The team that no one remembers because they never do good ever
What is this? This franchise should easily fall in top 10.
They get a massive amount of media attention despite being mediocre for the last 20+ years.
The Cowboys have ruined football forever for their mainstream attention and America's Team gimmick. They care more about putting on a circus than winning. I hate all of them: players, coaches, owner, fans. Please! GO AWAAAYY!
I only like their cheerleaders, but the cowboys are #1 at being the supreme choke artists.
At least the cheerleaders will give fans something to watch at games nowadays.
An amazing football history here. Some of the best players to ever play the game came from San Fran.
They're success over the last 50 years is all luck. No skill. There is magic in that snow because their teams suck.
How are they one of the worst!?! They have the most NFL titles, but not the most Super Bowl titles.
