The NFL has been around for nearly a century with the league beginning in 1920. Over the last 94 years, many teams have come into the league and some of the organizations who started out so long ago have piled up a ton of wins along the way. Many of the most notable franchises in the NFL make this list of most regular season wins in league history.
The list only covers the regular season and not any playoff action. The greatest teams and players in NFL history have helped some of these franchises make the list with multiple ten-win seasons along the way. There are other teams that simply haven’t been around long enough to have enough wins to break this list. Those teams will always be behind the others unless they reel off a ridiculous streak of 12-win seasons. A great example would be the New England Patriots, who have been very successful over the last decade but fall short on this list because the franchise only began in 1960.
There are some other teams like the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins who aren’t on this list either for the same reason. The Cowboys entered the league in 1960 as well, while Miami didn’t have a franchise until 1966. A team like the Cleveland Browns would have made this list if they would have had a team from 1996-1998, as they fall just nine wins short of the top ten. Here are the top ten NFL franchises with the most regular season wins in league history.
10 San Francisco 49ers: 507 Regular Season Wins
9 Arizona Cardinals: 511 Regular Season Wins
8 Detroit Lions: 517 Regular Season Wins
7 St. Louis Rams: 527 Regular Season Wins
6 Philadelphia Eagles: 531 Regular Season Wins
5 Washington Redskins: 565 Regular Season Wins
4 Pittsburgh Steelers: 569 Regular Season Wins
3 New York Giants: 661 Regular Season Wins
2 Green Bay Packers: 698 Regular Season Wins
1 Chicago Bears: 730 Regular Season Wins
When you think about the NFL franchise that has the most wins ever, the first thought would be the Bears who started out in 1920 as the Decatur Staleys. The team moved to Chicago in 1921 as the Staleys and changed their name to the Bears in 1922. The first four seasons of the franchise saw the team go 37-7-4 including a title win in 1921. The Bears went undefeated at 13-0 in 1934, winning another title and added another undefeated 11-0 championship season in 1942. A seven-year stretch from 1984-1991 saw the Bears win at least ten games on six different occasions including their lone Super Bowl title. They have been around as long as the NFL has existed and with that comes the most wins in NFL history and the best winning percentage in league history as well at .577 with an overall regular season record of 730-534-42.
