Denver broncos

The top ten teams of the 1980 NFL Regular season by record were:

Atlanta Falcons 12-4 Philadelphia Eagles 12-4 Dallas Cowboys 12-4 Buffalo Bills 11-5 Cleveland Browns 11-5 Houston Oilers 11-5 San Diego Chargers 11-5 Oakland Raiders 11-5 Los Angeles Rams 11-5 New England Patriots 10-6

However, the New England Patriots did not make the playoffs as the Oilers and the Raiders were the Wild Card teams from the AFC. The Minnesota Vikings compiled a worse record (9-7) but made the playoffs.
