28. Arizona Cardinals, Worst winning percentage of all time

There are a few franchises that have been known as perennial losers. The Houston Texans have some ridiculous lows since joining the NFL 20 years ago, but they also have a pretty good stretch where they made the playoffs every season. The Jacksonville Jaguars looked absolutely awful for long stretches. Right now, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers own the worst all-time winning percentage despite boasting two Super Bowl wins, including the last of Tom Brady’s career. Still, the Bucs all-time own a 40.4 percent winning percentage.

The Arizona Cardinals haven’t been much better than the Buccaneers, but they don’t have the Super Bowl wins to lean back on. This season could be one of the Cardinals’ worst. Since moving to Arizona in 1988, the Cardinals found a way to win at least three games every season. This season, we predict they will fall below that total. That would give them a 40.8 winning percentage.

Meanwhile, the Buccaneers are coming into the season with low expectations, but this is still the dreadful NFC South. The Bucs could post a .500 record pretty easily. Despite Baker Mayfield being the QB, there’s a lot of talent here. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin could carry the offense by themselves. Rachaad White is an up-and-coming running back option. If they go 9-8, the Bucs will have an all-time winning percentage of 41.5 percent.

This Cardinals team is going to stink. Colt McCoy looks like he’s going to be the QB of note. Kyler Murray won’t be able to save them, and he will likely sit out the season as he watches the tire fire from afar. Jonathan Gannon might be a one-and-done head coach. And, the Cardinals will finish the season with the worst record of any franchise.
