Updated! MLB Misery Index

Want hard, quantifiable proof of the pain your NFL team has caused you since ESPN appeared in 1979? The numbers are here, with overall winning percentage, playoff appearances and Super Bowl trips.

For cities that have hosted multiple NFL franchises, we have combined the records -- so Houston gets the Oilers and Texans, Baltimore gets the Colts and Ravens and St. Louis gets the Cardinals and Rams.

For the Raiders, even though they've moved between Oakland and Los Angeles, we included their overall franchise totals.
