Top 10 snakebit franchises

   The Music City Miracle is bad enough, but four straight trips to the 
  [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47) without a victory is something 
  [Bills](/teams/buffalobills/profile?team=BUF) fans are still reliving. 
   Sure, the 
  [Chiefs](/teams/kansascitychiefs/profile?team=KC) played in the first Super Bowl and won the title three years later, but Kansas City hasn't played for the Lombardi Trophy since. 
   The 
  [Jets](/teams/newyorkjets/profile?team=NYJ) have one of the biggest upsets in 
  [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47) history, but a return to the big game has been more than 40 years waiting. 
   With just one playoff win since claiming the title in 1957 and an 0-16 year on the books, it's easy to understand why there's talk of a curse in Detroit. 
   Before the 
  [Saints](/teams/neworleanssaints/profile?team=NO) broke through with a landmark victory in 
  [Super Bowl XLIV](http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/2010020700/2009/POST22/saints@colts/recap), the franchise's struggles earned the club the 'Aints nickname. 
   Questionable calls and giving up big leads in the playoffs are tough to swallow. But when the Oilers left town, things didn't get any better. 
   The 
  [Eagles](/teams/philadelphiaeagles/profile?team=PHI) went to five NFC title games in an eight-year span, but made just one 
  [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47), which resulted in a loss to the 
  [Patriots](/teams/newenglandpatriots/profile?team=NE). 
   Not only did the 
  [Bengals](/teams/cincinnatibengals/profile?team=CIN) lose two Super Bowls to the 
  [49ers](/teams/sanfrancisco49ers/profile?team=SF) in the 1980s, they fell against a coach (Bill Walsh) who got his start in Cincinnati. 
   The 
  [Vikings](/teams/minnesotavikings/profile?team=MIN) have dropped four 
  [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47)s. Just when the streak of coming up short looked like it would end, heartbreak returned. 
   The Drive. The Fumble. Painful memories of being so close. Then, to top if off, the 
  [Browns](/teams/clevelandbrowns/profile?team=CLE) left for Baltimore and won a 
  [Super Bowl](http://www.nfl.com/superbowl/47) as the 
  [Ravens](/teams/baltimoreravens/profile?team=BAL).
