The Top 20 Biggest Shutouts in NFL History
A score like that is very rare today, despite the NFL’s continuing evolution to a game of high-scoring air assaults. Perhaps that is why it is difficult to pin a team down to a goose egg.
Most of these regular-season blowouts below occurred back in the 1920’s and 1930’s.
For a look at the most points scored by a team, shutout or not, including playoff games, take a look at a previous Sports List of the Day post: Top 20 Teams with the Most Points Scored in a Game.
Note: These below are all regular season. In the postseason, there was also a 73-0 game – the biggest shutout ever. You can see that result and others in: Top 20 Teams with the Most Points Scored in a Game.Follow @VinGetz
