1. 1985 Chicago Bears (won Super Bowl XX)
This Bears team is dominant and historic that there’s almost too much to say about them. The Bears were on offense by Jim McMahon and the legendary Walter Payton, who were both excellent in this season. However, the Bears defense was so superlative that they often get overlooked on this team.
Coached by two legends of the game Mike Ditka and Buddy Ryan, the Bears defense had strength and speed, but also the intangibles of swagger and meanness. They knew they were going to crush you, and you knew they were going to crush you. Never was this felt more than in the postseason where the Bears outscored their opponents 91-10. Dominant. The 1985 Bears the best team in NFL history.
