2014 NFL Season

See the Latest Odds


In honor of the Oakland Raiders FINALLY snapping their 16 game losing streak last night (knew they could do it), we’re going to take a look at the top ten longest losing streaks in modern NFL history. As far as today is concerned, "modern" means since the merger in 1970. We’ll take a look at the longest streaks ever later this month. 


Top Ten Longest NFL Losing Streaks Since 1970


1. In 1976-1977, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost 26 straight ballgames. Ouch. 


2. The 2007-2009 Detroit Lions lost 19 games in a row. I recall that one vividly, as I’m sure you do. 


3. The 1972-1973 Houston Oilers had an 18 game losing streak over the course of two seasons. 


4. A decade later, from 1982-1983, the Houston Oilers had another bad run of it, losing 17 games in a row.  


(4*) 5. The 2008-2009 St. Louis Rams also lost 17 games consecutively. Too bad they didn’t play the Lions during those years. At least one of them would have gotten a W. 


6. The 2006-2007 Miami Dolphins lost 16 games in a row. 


(6*) 7. The pre-dynasty 1969-1970 Pittsburgh Steelers also endured a 16 game losing streak. 


(6*) 8. The 2013-2014 Oakland Raiders (you might’ve watched them last night) just broke their own 16 game losing streak. 


9. The 1970-1971 Buffalo Bills lost 15 games one after another. 


(9*) 10. The 2001-2002 Carolina Panthers also dealt with a 15 game losing streak.
