Last playoff game win for each of the 32 NFL teams
NFL training camps have begun and that means the 2019 NFL season has unofficially started.
Each team has a 0-0 record and a number of the teams have Super Bowl aspirations. All teams are focused on a successful camp and getting off to a good start when the regular season begins. After that, a playoff spot is certainly a goal of every team. Once that playoff spot is secured, winning a post-season game is the next step.
Winning a playoff game, however, is not always an easy task. In fact, there are four NFL franchises that have not won a playoff game this century. The four: Cincinnati, Detroit, Cleveland and Buffalo. If we add Miami, Oakland, Tampa Bay and Washington, these are the eight NFL teams that have not won a playoff game in more than 10 years!
The Bengals have played in eight post-season games since their last playoff victory in 1990; they are 0-8 in those playoff contests. The Lions are almost as bad… they are 0-9 in playoff games since their last post-season win in the 1991 season. The Browns are 0-2 since their last playoff win in 1994 and the Bills are 0-5 in playoff games since their last post-season win in 1995.
