Most wins in NFL history
Most wins in NFL history. The National Football League (NFL) is a very popular professional football league in the United States. There were 32 teams in the league by the end of the 2021 season.
These teams are split evenly between the National Football Conference (NFC) and the American Football Conference (AFC). Each conference has four divisions, and each division has four teams. Since 1920, when it started out as the American Professional Football Association (APFA), game results for the NFL have been kept track of. There can be a winner, and a loser in an NFL game, or the two teams can tie. When determining the win-loss percentage, a tie counts as half a win and half a loss.
Wins and Losses – Here are the most interesting facts.
- As of the end of the 2021 NFL season, the Chicago Bears have played the most games (1,435), won the most games (783), and tied the most games (42) in NFL regular season history. In addition, they are one of only two original NFL teams that are still around.
- Their rivals in the NFC North, the Green Bay Packers, have a record of 782–581–38 through the end of the 2021 season, which is a win-loss percentage of .572.
- The Arizona Cardinals, the other original team that is still in the league, have lost the most regular-season games (777) as of the end of the 2021 season.
- With a record of 291 wins and 433 losses in the regular season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the lowest win-loss percentage (.402) through 2021.
- Since they joined the NFL most recently, the Houston Texans have played the fewest games (321), won the fewest (139), and lost the most (182). In addition, as of the end of the 2021 NFL season, they and the Jacksonville Jaguars are the only teams that have never had a tie.
Who is in charge of these official counts?
The American Football League (AFL) teams’ statistical records are officially part of NFL history and are counted by the NFL. So, the win-loss records of these teams before they merged are taken into account. But the NFL does not count official stats from the All-America Football Conference.
