The Bears breezed through their playoff games, allowed just 10 points total in three contests, while scoring 91, en route to the lone Super Bowl in Bears history.

8. 1927 New York Yankees
> League: MLB
> Record: 110-44-1
> Run differential: 2.4 runs per game

The batting lineup of the 1927 Yankees was so fearsome, it was known as Murderer’s Row. Babe Ruth hit a then-record 60 home runs that season and the team’s 110-44-1 record still stands as the best in Yankees history by win percentage. The Yanks swept the Pittsburgh Pirates to complete one of the greatest baseball seasons of all time.

> League: NBA
> Record: 67-15
> Point differential: 11.6 points per game

After posting the best regular season record in NBA history, but losing in the NBA Finals the year before, the 2016-17 Golden State Warriors came back with a vengeance. The Warriors again had the NBA’s top offense before sweeping all three Western Conference opponents they faced in the playoffs and beating the Cleveland Cavaliers 4-1 to win the NBA Finals.
