With just three weeks of football in the books, it’s never a good thing to overreact to a few bad games that currently have these teams at or near the bottom of their respective divisions.
After all, everyone’s sat next to that guy at a baseball game who overreacts to every fly ball and starts cheering like it’s a home run even though the shortstop only had to take five steps onto the outfield grass to make the catch.
But at the same time, there’s a reason why these potential playoff contenders have their fans feeling a little queasy and whether it’s a tough schedule, poor play, or just bad luck, these six teams aren’t where they want to be after three weeks of play.
This list won’t include teams like the Lions, Bills or Browns, who have gotten out to tough starts as well, but let’s be honest, there’s no one panicking in Detroit because the Lions have started 0-3.
Rather, the teams who will be highlighted in this list are those who were expected to play well and thus far haven’t really gotten going. Not to say that these teams can’t rebound from their slow starts, but some of them are certainly in more trouble than others and may be in need of some serious intervention.
