I'm going to narrow the list down, most were runners-up, but some weren't.

1998 Vikings: 15-1 Set the league record for points scored
2001 Rams: 14-2 w/ #1 O and #3 D
1990 49ers: 14-2, lost in NFC Ch. after Montana got annihilated and Roger Craig's Fumble.
1990 Bills: Clearly the better team. Lost the TOP battle 2-1, but still had a chance to win on Norwood's missed figgie.
1978 Cowboys: Closest to beating the curtain, #1 on O, #2 on D
1988 Bengals: 15-1 Beat by the greatest drive in NFL history, IMO, and one crackhead.
1992 49ers: 1 on O, 3 on D, 14-2. Lost to Dallas at home in the NFC Ch.
1984 Dolphins: 1 on O, 7 on D, but lost to an invincible 49er team in the Bowl
1967 Baltimore Colts: 11-1-2, 2 on O and D, lost to Namath's Jets
1983 Redskins: 14-2, 1 on O, got pounded by the Raiders in the bowl, the last NFC team to lose for 13 years
1997 Chiefs: 6 on O, 1 on D, Cheated out of the game by the eventual champs

1978 Cowboys. Defending champions, loaded with HOFamers. That SB was like Ali vs Frazier

I said 1978 Cowboys..followed closely by the 1990 49ers..they would have blown the Bills out in SBXXV

They lost because Marty is a ****ing moron when the playoffs come around.


Elvis Grbac.


Oh, by the way, they lost to a much better team.

That was hands down the WORST COACHING I have ever seen in the last 2 minutes of that game..how can you run out of time??they were over the 50 yd line with over 2 minutes to go?

Don't you pay attention to the talking heads?

Where are the 2005 and 2006 Sandy Eggo Chargers?

1996 Broncos?? Lost at home in huge upset to upstart Jax

1997 Packers...lost in SB to Broncos....Holmgren made a few coaching blunders in that game.

1998 Vikings...15-1....kicker missed 1 kick all year....unfortunately it was the only one that truly mattered....

1990 Bills.....wide right....

1994 Cowboys....probably would have won 4 titles in a row if not for Switzer...

Yep, that Christmas Day loss was the beginning of the end for that great team.
