1979 LOS ANGELES RAMS 9-7 (2-1 in the playoffs) - lost Super Bowl 14

2008 Arizona Cardinals 9-7 (3-1 in the playoffs) - lost Super Bowl 43

1979 Rams


The Rams were a powerhouse for most of the '70s under Chuck Knox and had six straight seasons of 10 or more wins from '73 to '78, so it was a surprise this 9-7 team was the one that finally reached the Super Bowl (with the worst record ever for a Super Bowl team). The Rams led the NFL in interceptions thrown in '79, with four different QBs contributing. Pat Haden was the starting QB most of the season, but Vince Ferragamo had replaced an injured Haden by the playoffs. Although they led at the half and at the end of three quarters, they lost to the Pittburgh Steelers 31-19.

2008 Cardinals

Led by QB Kurt Warner, who had won Super Bowl 34 with the St. Louis Rams, Arizona reached the franchise's first ever Super Bowl. The team had been in the NFL for 89 seasons, playing in Racine, Chicago, and St. Louis. The Chicago Cardinals were the NFL Champions in 1947. In 2008, the Cardinals were the 6th seed in the NFC playoffs. They beat the Atlanta Falcons in the Wild Card game, the Carolina Panthers in the Divisional, and the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship. Leading in Super Bowl 43 with less than a minute to play, they lost 27-23 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

2007-'08 New York Giants in Superbowl 42 as the NFC wild card had the worst regular season record as a winning Superbowl team while the 9-7 1979 Los Angeles Rams lost in Superbowl XIV after winning their first- and second-round playoff games.

I was shocked by this answer. I figured it was the 9-7 Buccaneers in the 2001. However, I was found out to be completely incorrect. The real answer is the 2009/10 Detroit Lions, who managed to make the playoffs in a terrible NFC with a 4-12 record. Once they managed to make the playoffs in incredible fashion, they started to shock the world, winning their first game against the New Orleans Saints 27-24. They went on the superbowl, but they lost to the Buffalo Bills 17-10 in overtime. Psyche, I don't know or care, what kind of question is that anyway? Just look it up!!
