NFL Teams That Never Won A Super Bowl

My 7-year-old asked a question the other day: Which NFL team has never won a Super Bowl before? Although I could name a few, I was surprised to find out that 14 of the 32 NFL clubs are still fruitless in the pursuit of a Superbowl victory. And, four of them never even made it … Read more
