The Jacksonville Jaguars have never played in a Super Bowl, but they’ve come close three times. One of those times was the 1999 NFL season, when the Jaguars went 14-2 and lost to the Tennessee Titans in the AFC Championship game.

That 1999 team made Sports Illustrated’s “Top 15 Teams To Not Win The Super Bowl” as well as The Athletic’s Most Dominant Teams of the Last 50 Years.

29. 1999 Jacksonville Jaguars (85.83)

They went 14-2 and blew out the Dolphins 62-7 in the divisional round, but they fell in the AFC Championship Game to the Titans, who also handed them their two regular-season losses.

Folks, it still hurts.

Mike Sando and Zak Boyer think that team was better than 12 Super Bowl winners and on the same level as the 1992 Dallas Cowboys and the 1999 St. Louis Rams.

Better than The Purple People Eaters.

Better than the Titans team that beat them three times that year.

Go Jaguars.
