Do the 2017 Steelers belong anywhere on this list? They were 13-3 and had a first round playoff bye, so they definitely fit the profile of a lot of the other teams that are on the list. They were behind pretty much the whole way too, not really waking up until down 21-0.

Worth considering...

I say no to the 2017 Steelers. One reason being that they lost to a team in the postseason that had already beat them at home in the regular season. They have also had a very suspect defense all year that became even more so after losing Shazier.

Going back to that 2008 Cardinals team, I didn't realize they went 9-7 that year for some reason i thought they squeaked in at 8-8 or 7-9. Now that I see they went 9-7 no way I could say they are anywhere close to one of the worst team to make the playoffs.

The best one and done team in recent years (let's say since 2000) would be the 2010 Patriots that went 14-2 and suffered a bad loss at home to the Jets.

Arizona played in an awful division, which inflated its record. The next-to-last week they were losing 47-0 to the Patriots (the 11-5 Bradyless version who amazingly missed the playoffs despite the lofty record). It was an embarrassing display, clear lack of effort in snowy conditions. There are worse I agree, but they still stand out given the team's notoriety with the near Super Bowl win.

As for the Steelers, no way they are a great one and done example. They looked like garbage in about 2/3rds of its games this season.

#12: 2012 Broncos, 13-3, #1 seed. In Manning’s first season with the Broncos, he led the team to 11 straight wins after a 2-3 start and secured the top seed in the playoffs. This team had it all: an explosive offense, solid special teams, and a dominant defense that did just about everything well. It looked inevitable that the Broncos would reach the Super Bowl again. Then in a frigid double OT game with the Ravens, the Broncos waved the white flag with two timeouts and 38 seconds remaining in regulation. That came on the heels of a 4th down hail mary bomb by Joe Flacco that will forever more define Rahim Moore to Broncos and Ravens fans alike for his near miss on defending it. A Peyton Manning pick seconds into the second OT period set up the Ravens for the winning FG, and a dream season ended in spectacular disappointment, 38-35.
This is my personal #1 choice. That team was loaded with talent on both sides of the ball and it was all for not thanks to some bad officiating, a p***y of a head coach, and one of the worst defensive plays (both in the actual playcall and execution) I've ever seen in professional football.
