Worst Seasons by an NFL Team

The Top Ten Worst Seasons by an NFL Team

1 2008 Lions

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. - howie115

This team was terrible in every phase of the game. How are the 07 Fins number 2. If it wasnt for the injurys they might have been respectable - gocanes52

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

they had more fumbles, less points, and less field goals than the 08 lions - olhrocks

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

think about it. even though the lions had 0-16, the bucs were just... worse.

For 2 consecutive seasons they only won like 2 games

3 2017 Browns

It crazy that they lost all games in 2017, I remember seeing it on google they had a 16 game losing streak and a 0-16 record

The journey to joining the 08 Lions perhaps this time without Joe Thomas its very possible. - htoutlaws2012

0-16 is a perfect record

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

4 2007 Dolphins

It was kind of funny just listening to guys ask "is this the week the dolphins finally win a game? " - crazyeyes56

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

I still have respect but this was bad. - alexx3

5 2016 Browns

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

It crazy that they had a 1-15 record - trains45

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.

6 1942 Detroit Lions
7 1990 Patriots
8 2009 Rams
9 1980 Saints

They are called the "Aints" for a reason

That's when the Saints became the Aints

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

RYAN LEAF - Tacocheese

The Contenders

11 1960 Dallas Cowboys
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 1973 Oilers

This is a hockey team not a damn football team

Houston Oilers, not Edmonton Oilers - ThePerson

They had an nfl oilers team? - trains45

16 2006 Raiders

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 - Chris-1

Raiders are my favorite team even they won four games

They play like this every season

17 2002 Texans
18 2012 Chiefs

Let’s not mention that season. - Randomator

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 Buffalo Bills
23 2005 Saints
24 2004 49ers
25 1982 Colts
26 1996 Jets

Rich Kotite was horrible

27 2011 Colts

They are pretty much just god awful seriously, even without peyton manning you with think they would win at least one game but no they are basically gonna be the the laughing stocks of the NFL for a long time. Seriously guys 0-12? Give me a break.

This season showed us exactly how good Peyton Manning really was. - Incontrollable9_YT

Sure, they had no Manning, but its clear that the rest of the team can't operate without him. That horrible record says it all, I mean how can you be in the Superbowl 2 years ago and no be worse the the St Louis Rams, a historically weak team? Infact, how can you be the worst team of 2011? - nic1997ps3

Well actually Andrew Luck Replaced him greatly

28 2014 Titans

This should be up there -_-

29 2013 Texans
30 2015 Redskins

Whoever made this is an idiot. They were 9-7, won the division, and made the playoffs.

Wait, the 2015 Redskins made the playoffs - PackFan2005

31 2014 Rams
32 2012 Eagles

I'm glad this isn't high

33 2015 Chargers
34 2013 Steelers
35 2019 Dolphins

They tanked. No offense. They got a lucky win 26-18.

36 2013 Browns
37 2017 Giants
38 1999 Colts
39 2013 Jaguars
40 1973 Chargers
41 2009 Buffalo Bills
42 2014 Buccaneers
43 2015 Titans

They were right with the Browns, as they both went 3-13 in 2015. - PackFan2005

Had no defense or offense

44 2005 Texans
45 2016 Panthers
46 2016 Bears
47 1994 Oilers
48 2017 Dolphins

They had Jay Cutler as QB. 'enough said - kindertorch

They had Jay Cutler as QB. enough' said

49 2008 Patriots

50 2012 Cardinals
