We are only two weeks into the NFL season and already we have seen an incredible amount of parity. Few teams have given consistent performances, good or bad, in the early going.
There are exceptions to that, of course. In particular, there are three teams that have looked consistently bad so far this season.
Kansas City Chiefs
Even in a historically bad season, there are always silver linings, but I'm not sure there is one so far for the Chiefs. Just about everything that could go wrong has gone wrong.
For starters, they have been outscored by a combined 89-10 margin in their two losses. In neither game were they competitive for a single second.
Adding literal injury to insult, they've also lost star running back Jamaal Charles. The Sporting News passed along the report from ESPN that Charles is done for the season. I know the practice is generally frowned upon the NFL, but it might be time for the Chiefs to start thinking about next season.
Few thought the Seahawks were going to get back to the postseason in 2011, but at the very least, most figured they would be around the .500 mark. With the way they have played early this season, it doesn't look like they're even going to be that good.
In Week 1, they lost 33-17 to the 49ers, a team most assumed would be far inferior to the Seahawks. In Week 2, they were trounced 24-0 by the Pittsburgh Steelers.
I personally felt the offense had a shot to grow into a fairly dangerous offense has done nothing of the sort. The defense hasn't been a whole lot better. Letting Pittsburgh put up 24 points is understandable, but no defense should let the 49ers score 33.
It was tough to include the Bengals on this list because they have a win this season, but I just can't imagine them having too many more wins when it's all said and done.
The Bengals dropped their Week 2 game against the Broncos, a team that nearly made this list and neither side of the ball has looked solid.
The Bengals have a clear opportunity to get themselves out of the cellar next week when they play San Francisco.
