Time and again, insane winning streaks happen in every sport. A team or an athlete goes on a run that drives their fans into a frenzy. Everybody knows that they’ll lose at some point, but the question is when? Meanwhile, these victories often have consequences for their team’s season.
So today we took a look at 25 teams that went on wild winning streaks. We’ll also break down what happened next. Some won championships while others fizzled out. Check the list out below via Sportskeeda.
25. Indianapolis Colts (2008-09)
Peyton Manning appears twice on this list because two of his teams had glorious winning streaks. The first one came for the Indianapolis Colts across two seasons. After they won the Super Bowl in early 2007, Manning’s Colts started 2008 in patchy form, going 3-4. But they rebounded and went on a great run with eight straight victories.
They lost to the Chargers in the playoffs, but their run wasn’t over. Indianapolis started 2009 with a 14-0 run before a loss to the Jets (via NBC Sports). In total, their regular-season winning record stood at 23 games. The Colts made it to the Super Bowl but lost to the Saints.
