Which Team Is the Worst in the League?
With six teams fighting for this awful title, which team will get another win or two by the end of the season?
Playing eeny-meeny-miney-moe with quarterbacks has not fared well for the Browns. Their only win came against the Bills in a 6-3 ugly game. The Browns face the Lions, Raiders, and Chiefs, so they may get one or two more wins this season.
After going 0-16 last season, the Lions can only get better, right? Well, they do have one win and may get another one. Their only chances for wins are against the Seahawks and Browns.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen! The Rams have only beaten Detroit this season, which is not much of an achievement. Their only chance for another victory is against the Titans later this season.
Can we see another 0-16 team? The Buccaneers are 0-7 to date and have the toughest part of their schedule remaining. They face Miami, Green Bay, Carolina, New York Jets, Seattle, and New Orleans and Atlanta twice. You tell me who their win will be against.
The Titans are by far the most underachieving team with one win against division-rival Jacksonville. Let's not forget when they forgot to play in England against the Patriots. The Titans have a chance for some more wins when they face Buffalo, St. Louis, and Seattle.
Which Undefeated Team Will End the Regular Season 16-0?
Yes, that sounds weird to say the Saints will remain undefeated, but they have faced some tough competition and have a bit of a coast the rest of the season.
Their only tough games come against New England and Dallas at home, and on the road in Atlanta. Other than those, they face St. Louis, Washington, and Carolina and Tampa Bay twice.
On the other hand, the Indianapolis Colts host New England and Denver, while travelling to Baltimore to face a tough defense. The rest of their games include Tennessee, Jacksonville, New York Jets, Buffalo, and Houston twice.
If both teams remain undefeated during the regular season, the Colts have the best chance to finish the season without a blemish. Manning has the playoff and Super Bowl experience.
Midseason Super Bowl Prediction
The All-Manning Bowl. Yes, the Indianapolis Colts will beat the New York Giants in Super Bowl XLIV.
