With their loss to Detroit on Saturday, December 16, the Bears saw their record this season drop to 4-10. It gave them their fourth straight season with double-digit losses, the longest current streak in the NFL.
The Jacksonville Jags had lost 10 or more games for six straight years, but at 10-4 this season, they have qualified for the playoffs and no longer hold the current streak for the most consecutive seasons with 10+ losses.
Here is the number of 10-loss seasons for each NFL team since 2000. As you might expect, the Cleveland Browns top this list with 14 10-loss seasons this century. Four teams, Denver, New England, New Orleans and Pittsburgh are at the other end, each with only one double-digit loss season this century.
10: Detroit, Jacksonville, Oakland
8: Arizona, Buffalo, San Francisco, Washington
7: Chicago, Houston, L.A. Rams, Tampa Bay
6: Dallas, Minnesota, New York Jets, Tennessee
5: Atlanta, Cincinnati, Kansas City, L.A. Chargers, Miami, New York Giants
3: Baltimore, Indianapolis, Seattle
2: Green Bay, Philadelphia
