Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions losing streak counts to 9 playoff games consecutively since 1991, against the Dallas Cowboys they won their last playoff win with a 38-6 score. The losing run is yet to break and the streak is still active.

The history of the Lions in the Playoff is quite long but with sadness, the result that they have produced in that long history could have been much better. They went through some harsh periods and some painful defeats in the playoff games.

In 1957, against the Green Bay Packers in the NFL, they lost the match and a loss against the Washington Redskins in 1991 was a difficult one to take as well.

The Lions have one of the most fervent fan bases in the NFL, despite their playoff difficulty. Their home ground Ford Field, is still renowned for its loud crowd noise and passionate supporters.

Cincinnati Bengals

Kansas City Chiefs

With the same number of longest NFL playoff losing runs as the Cincinnati Bengals, the Kansas City Chiefs finally were victorious after around 22 years of winless runs in the playoffs in 2015 since 1993.

They have played in 25 playoffs so far including the American Football Conference. From 2015 to 2022 they have played consecutively for 8 years. Having managed to win 12 playoff victories, they have been into the Super Bowl five times with the victory coming on three occasions.

In Super Bowl LIV, which they won with a 31-20 score over the San Francisco 49ers to claim their second title, the Chiefs made a comeback to the big game. Patrick Mahomes, the QB who won the Super Bowl MVP award, was their captain.

The Kansas City Chiefs dramatically left out the Eagles with a 38-35 score to win Super Bowl LVII in 2023.

In 1948, the Cardinals qualified for the playoffs but fell to the Eagles in the National Football League match. When they went on to lose against the Minnesota Vikings in the Divisional Round in 1974, they wouldn't qualify for the playoffs again until then. In 1975, 1982, and 1994, the Cardinals would go on to lose in the playoffs.

The Cardinals didn't end their playoff winless streak until 1998. Their victory over the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card Round was made possible by Greg Davis' game-winning field goal in overtime.

Despite going on to lose to the Minnesota Vikings in the divisional round, the Cardinals' playoff victory marked a significant turning point for the team.
