Some less-than-flattering distinctions:
–The Cardinals currently possess the longest championship drought in pro football, dating back to 1947. They also have an appalling 716 losses to their credit, almost 100 more than the next most losing team: the Detroit Lions.
–The Vikings, Bengals, and Falcons are the only teams that have existed 40+ years and are still without a championship. In addition, the Lions, Titans/Oilers, Chargers, Browns, Bills, Jets, and Chiefs have waited over 40 years since their last championship.
–The Buccaneers are the only team with sub-.400 all time win percentage (.392).
