Who Has the Worst Offense in the NFL?

Which team has the worst offense in the NFL?

The best offenses run like well-oiled machines. Quarterbacks like Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers utilize precision accuracy to tear apart even the stoutest of defenses. Receivers like Calvin Johnson and Roddy White catch touchdown after touchdown. Backs like Arian Foster and LeSean McCoy tear through lines and are always a threat to take it the distance.

Bad offenses, not so much.

When an offense is bad, the beautiful savagery of football becomes unwatchable. Mistakes pile on top of mistakes as linemen blow assignments and players at the skill positions showcase very little in terms of actual skill.

A lot can contribute to a bad offense, but a team truly has to stink to take home the title of the worst offense in the NFL.

The Cleveland Browns invested heavily in rookie offensive talent this offseason, and the fanbase is clearly excited. However, as National Lead Writer Dan Levy points out, with so many rookies and so many moving parts, there are going to be rookie mistakes. While Brandon Weeden and the Browns may have a bright future, their present is awfully bleak.

The Miami Dolphins have just as many moving parts as the Browns. Ryan Tannehill has all the tools to be a stud in the NFL but may not make the immediate impact fans are hoping for. Reggie Bush is the only real weapon on that team as the rest of the offense is, well, offensive. Legedu Naanee isn't keeping anyone up at night, and neither is Anthony Fasano.
