Asking what NFL team has the best home-field advantage can be quite a loaded question. There are so many variables, including weather conditions, current team makeup, scheduling quips, and so much more. With that said, football is a game of winning and losing, and the scoreboard doesn’t care about any of that.
We’ve taken the liberty to break down what NFL teams have the best all-time home record. This is accurate as of publishing and the ranking is by best winning percentage.
Best Home Record In The NFL All-Time
Baltimore Ravens 149-69-1 (.683)
Surprise! If you guessed the Ravens as having the best home record in the NFL, I salute you. The franchise has only been around since 1996, but has been led by the likes of Joe Flacco, Jamal Lewis, Derrick Mason, Justin Tucker and the legendary Ray Lewis in that time.
Green Bay Packers 462-234-20 (.659)
One of the most storied franchises in the history of sports, just so happens to play their best football on the frozen tundra of Lambeau Field. Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Ahman Green, Donald Driver, Mason Crosby and Reggie White have all contributed greatly to Packers history.
Dallas Cowboys 308-172-4 (.640)
Feels hard to lose when your stadium was built so that God could watch your games. The Cowboys haven’t had a lot of postseason success in the last few decades, but they’re consistent regular season winners, save for a few down years bridging the Tom Landry/Jimmy Johnson years.
Miami Dolphins 282-158-3 (.640)
I’d wager most young fans don’t think of the Dolphins as a storied franchise, considering they’ve only won double-digit games in a season six times since 2000, but this franchise has been fantastic at home over their history. Bob Griese, Dan Marino, Larry Csonka and the list goes on — these boys weren’t letting you leave South Florida without a fight.
Minnesota Vikings 304-172-4 (.638)
Speaking of regular season darlings, welcome in the Vikings. One interesting fact about their home-field dominance is that they’re the only team on this list who play indoors (they moved inside in 1982). They’ve had a laundry list of great players move through, including Fran Tarkenton, Adrian Peterson, Cris Carter, Randy Moss and the Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller.
Kansas City Chiefs 302-179-4 (.627)
Arrowhead Stadium is not for the faint of heart…well not recently, at least. The Chiefs struggled mightily in their first few decades in the NFL, making the playoffs just twice from 1970-1989. They’re making up time quickly, though, having won their division seven straight seasons behind Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Andy Reid.
New England Patriots 301-178-6 (.627)
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, what else needs to be said? Save for a few Raymond Berry-led squads in the mid-80’s, the Patriots weren’t much to write about until 2001, when Drew Bledsoe went down and Brady stepped up. They’d win six Super Bowls and post no losing records from 2001-2019.
Pittsburgh Steelers 388-230-10 (.626)
The Steelers — then the Pirates — struggled out of the gate in 1933, winning their division just once until 1972. Then they’d transform into the most dominant team of the 1970s, winning four Super Bowls under Chuck Noll. Terry Bradshaw, Joe Greene and Franco Harris led the way for one of the most ferocious two-way teams we’ve ever seen.
Denver Broncos 300-187-7 (.623)
The altitude is real. Much like the Packers have taken advantage of their climate, the Broncos quite literally deplete you of oxygen. Of course it doesn’t hurt to have talent like John Elway, Terrell Davis and Rod Smith in your organization, either.
