Biggest Wins in NFL History

Throughout history, the NFL has been one of the world's biggest and most exciting sports leagues. It’s famous for big hits, high scoring, and some of the world’s greatest athletes performing at their best. While every fan loves a hard-fought game between two evenly-matched sides, there’s something incredibly historic and exciting about a vast blowout victory. It’s fascinating for fans of the winning team, although perhaps not as much for those on the losing side.

This season, there haven’t been many significant blowouts, as most teams in the NFL are of similar quality. You can bet on this season’s NFL games at Betway, with odds on all games and futures. The NFL can be unpredictable, but that’s part of what makes betting on it so exciting. Here are some of the biggest wins in the history of the league.

Jacksonville Jaguars 62 Miami Dolphins 7

This playoff matchup from the year 2000 is the biggest blowout in the history of the NFL playoffs during the Super Bowl era, with the Miami Dolphins being embarrassed by their local rivals. In addition to being the largest rout in NFL playoff history, this 2000 AFC Divisional Round game also served as the final contest of Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino's storied playing career for the Dolphins.

It started badly for the Dolphins and only got worse as the game progressed, with many Dolphins fans presumably turning their TV sets off halfway through. The Jaguars, who were the AFC's top seed then, scored 24 points in the first quarter, highlighted by Fred Taylor's 90-yard touchdown run. Before Marino completed his first pass of the game, Jacksonville had already scored 38 points and started their backup quarterback, Jay Fiedler.

The Dolphins made seven turnovers, with Marino accounting for four of them. Miami just gained 21 rushing yards compared to Jacksonville's 257. While the Jaguars went on to play in the AFC Championship game, they were defeated 33-14 by the Tennessee Titans.

San Francisco 49ers 55 Denver Broncos 10

In 1990, the San Francisco 49ers met the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl, with the 49ers starting the match as heavy favorites. This was when the NFC dominated the league, winning 13 straight Super Bowls, and they proved the sportsbooks right as they routed the Broncos. Legendary stars Joe Montana and Jerry Rice made seven passes for 148 yards and three touchdowns.

Montana recorded the second-highest passer rating in Super Bowl history with 297 yards and five touchdowns. This was all, even though Denver’s defense was the best in the league then. In 1989, the Broncos allowed the fewest yards and points per game in the league, but they were no match for the 49ers.

New England Patriots 59 Tennessee Titans 0

Although the Titans had the best record in the league in 2008, they began the 2009 season with five consecutive losses. Things went from bad to worse for them as they were embarrassed by the New England Patriots in week six. At that time, the Patriots had the talent of Tom Brady in the quarterback position and were coached by Bill Belichick.

Six touchdowns were scored by the Patriots in the first half alone, including an NFL-record five thrown by Tom Brady in the second quarter. Another record would be set by New England, this time for the most significant lead at the half in NFL history (45-0). Brady started the third quarter of the second half with another touchdown drive before being replaced by backup and rookie Brian Hoyer.
