When it comes to professional sports, it’s all about winning. Not just winning games, but coming out as the only team left standing at the end of the season. Teams try to acquire the best players so that they can win trophies, but this can be challenging, particularly if you do not have a history of winning. Some teams have never experienced what it is like to emerge as champions in their existence, whilst some teams have tasted glory but spend decades re-chasing this success to no avail. For many of these teams, you shouldn’t hold your breath.
10. Tennessee Titans – 54 years
The Titans started out life as the Houston Oilers in 1960, and things got off to a flying start. They won the first 2 AFL Championships ever (1960 and 1961), and they would appear in the third but fell to the Dallas Texans in a historic double-overtime game. They joined the NFL as part of the merger in 1970, but these would prove to be more challenging times. Fast forward to 1997, the team relocated to Tennessee and would play a season in Memphis before settling in Nashville, where they became the Tennessee Titans in 1999. This fresh start appeared to work for them, as that year they posted a franchise best 13-3 record and then marched to Super Bowl XXXIV. Here they fell to the St. Louis Rams after Kevin Dyson was tackled one yard short of the end zone at the end of the game.
