Was there ever an Major League Baseball team or teams that never won a single game in there season If there was please list them?

The team with the worst winning percentage in the history of MLB -- the 1899 Cleveland Spiders -- still managed to win 20 games out of the 154 they played that year. This dismal .130 winning percentage is so bad that it is extremely unlikely that any MLB team will do worse. The 1916 Philadelphia Athletics -- the third worst team in MLB history -- had a .235 winning percentage, 100 points better than the Spiders.

Who has the winningest record in the NFL?

Depending on specificity of the question (ie. overall record or winning percentage) the answer will vary. Overall wins would be the Bears (712), winning percentage all-time is the Bears as well .575. The Bears hold combined regular & post-season wins, and the Bears and Cowboys share combined winning percentage (.575). Single regular season is Patriots at 16-0 followed by the undefeated Dolphins team of '73 at 14-0 (obviously both 100% but Pats with two more wins). Complete season (including playoffs) is the Patriots at 18-1 followed by the '73 Dolphins with a record of 17-0.
