Top Ten NFL Regular Season Blow-Outs and Play-Off Rematches

USA TODAY Sports

1. In 1965, the Buffalo Bills lost 34-3 to the San Diego Chargers during their regular season match-up. In the play-offs, though, the Bills got their act together and blew-out the Bolts 23-0. 

 

2. In 1990, the Houston Texans crushed the Cincinnati Bengals 48-17 in the regular season. When it mattered, though, the Bengals took the W, 41-14. 

 

3. The 1976 Oakland Raiders lost 48-17 to the New England Patriots during the regular season. The Raiders, though, celebrated a narrow victory in the post-season, winning 24-21. 

 

4. The Houston Texans skewered the Kansas City Chiefs 30-0 during the 1993 NFL season. Once the play-offs rolled around, though, KC managed a win, 28-20. 

 

5. The 1977 Los Angeles Rams beat the Minnesota Vikings 35-3 in their regular season contest. Come play-off time, however, the Vikes apparently found some D, beating the Rams 14-7. 

 

6. The 2006 Seattle Seahawks lost badly to the Chicago Bears during the regular season. Like, 37-6 bad. The Seahawks gave Da Bears a run for their money in the post-season, though, losing by just a field goal, 27-24. 

 

7. The New York Jets lost 31-0 to the Buffalo Bills during the 1981 NFL season. In the play-offs, the Jets still lost, but put-up a valiant effort. The final score was 31-27. 

 

8. In 1981, the Dallas Cowboys scored 14 points to the San Francisco 49ers’ 45 during the regular season. The ‘Boys almost managed a win in the post-season, losing to the Niners by a single point, 28-27. 

 

9. The 1979 Houston Texans beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 38-7 during their regular season match-up. In the play-offs, the Steelers still lost by a couple of TDs, but managed to score 13 points to the Texans’ 27. 

 

10. In 2009, the Cincinnati Bengals were shut-out 37-0 by the New York Jets when the teams met in the regular season. Their post-season contest went only slightly better for the Bengals, but they at least kept things within a couple of scores. The Jets won 24-14.
