As you know the NFL enters its 100th season this year, and although there haven’t been 100 Super Bowls, there have been 100 champions. Relax; we aren’t going to go through the merits of all 100 champions. Although, if you want to discuss the qualifications of the 1920 Akron Pros or any of the other Pre-Super Bowl era champions, drop a line in the comments below.
Instead, we’re going to give you the list of the top 25 teams in NFL history. In this list we’ll be talking about Lombardi era Packers, Montana era ‘49ers, and maybe even some teams that didn’t win a championship. Flip through this list and see how your own list stacks up with ours.
25. 1968 Colts (lost Super Bowl III)
If this team hadn’t run into Joe Namath and the Jets in Super Bowl III, we could be talking about the greatest team of all time. Even as such, the NFL champions went 13-1 in the regular season and won their games by an average of 20.6 points per game.
In the playoffs, league MVP Earl Morrall led the Colts past the Browns and Vikings by a combined score of 58-14. Talk about domination. Then they came up against “Broadway Joe” who famously guaranteed the win, and backed it up. What a shame.
