Sports Stats ‘on Tapp’ is a biweekly blog published every Wednesday and Sunday with a bonus “SIX STATS…” posting every Friday.

Five NFL teams have not had a win in the playoffs since 1995 and beyond. But the interesting thing about these teams is that three of the five teams have winning records after Week 9 of this season and are right in the hunt for making the playoffs and possibly ending their playoff win drought. (Plus the Kansas City Chiefs are tied for first place with a 4-4 record.)

The five teams with the longest drought for a win in the playoffs (and their current record in 2011)

Team (current record)        Last season they won a playoff game

Cincinnati (6-2)                                            1990

Detroit (6-2)                                                  1991

Kansas City (4-4)                                          1993

Cleveland (3-5)                                             1994

Buffalo (5-3)                                                  1995

Here are the remainder of the NFL teams and the last year they won a playoff game. (Note: The Houston Texans franchise began in 2002; they have never won a playoff game)
