Longest Streaks

Here’s a look at the longest overall winning streaks (including regular season and the playoffs) in NFL history. The Cleveland Browns, who began in the rival All-America Football Conference, recorded an 18-game winning streak in the late 1940s prior to joining the NFL.

    On Dec 11, 2011 - This web site needs a lot of updating. The Packers move into 3rd place behind the 2008/09 Colts and the 2003/04 Patriots. The Packers can tie the Indianapolis Colts when they win their first playoff game this season.

    Please note that the date line is Dec. 9, 2009. The information was current at that time. The record winning streaks include regular season and postseason. We'll work on updating the page so as to include the 2010-11 Green Bay Packers. Thanks for visiting Profootballhof.com and keep the comments coming.

    I'm not sure I follow, Lombardi. This article claims NE and the Colts are tied at 21 for most regular season wins. But in that the article is both out-dated (the Colts, of course, eventually went to 23, punctuated with a post-season loss) and confused -- NE's streak included post-season, but only encompassed 18 regular season games. So, if we're talking regular season only, it's the Colts at 23; the Packers, currently at 15 or 16, will need regular season wins through at least game five of next year to overtake. But this article includes post-season. Therefore, it's NE at 21(*), with GB currently in 2nd at 19 (finally breaking that 19th game curse). GB will surpass NE if they finish out the regular season undefeated (seems likely, given their remaining schedule). Either way, GB's post-season won't affect standings. Assuming they go 16-0, they will already have passed NE including post season; if we're talking regular season, then of course playoffs don't count, and the Colts' record will stand well into next year. (*)NFL only, of course. The 1947-49 Cleveland Browns had a 29-game winning streak, but they were playing in the AAFC.

    Hold off on that, Jim. Pencil GB in at the top. Packers just moved into sole possession of 2nd longest streak and in 3 weeks (GB *should* win its remaining games) the Packers will have the new record.

    Time to add the 2011 Green Bay Packers. They ended the 2010 season winning 6 in a row and the 12 wins in 2011 season make 18.
