List Rules Vote up the best, most electric, and highest scoring offenses in NFL history

The old saying is that defense wins championships, and offense wins games. This might be the case, but the adage goes out the window when you field one of the best NFL offenses of all time. Take a nostalgic trip down memory lane as you rank some of the most electric NFL offenses ever, featuring teams from all different eras of football.

You'll find many of the best NFL offenses are led by some of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, such as Tom Brady, Steve Young, Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Kurt Warner, and John Elway. It's nearly impossible to have one of the best offenses in NFL history without an great quarterback.

Go ahead and enjoy highlights from each team as you rank the best NFL offenses of all time, and when you are finished, head on over and vote on the best football players ever.

Led by Peyton Manning and his NFL records of 55 touchdown passes and 5,477 passing yards, the 2013 Broncos also set NFL records with 606 total points and 76 touchdowns.

Unfortunately, as the adage goes, defense wins championships. The electric Broncos offense was stuffed in the Super Bowl 43-8 by the No. 1 defense of the Seattle Seahawks.

The 2007 Patriots scored 589 points thanks in part to Tom Brady's 50 touchdown passes. Both statistics were NFL records until being broken by the 2013 Broncos.

The '07 Patriots have the dubious distinction of producing only the second 16-0 season in NFL history. The more memorable number is 18-1, as the Patriots were unable to overcome the New York Giants in the Super Bowl to complete the undefeated campaign.

The 1998 Vikings were something special. They destroyed the NFL record for points in a season by racking up 556 on their way to a 15-1 season before losing to the Atlanta Falcons in the NFC Championship.

Randall Cunningham, Cris Carter, and Randy Moss combined to form one of the most prolific attacks the game has ever seen.
