The NFL season is in full swing.
Although it seems like a long season, 16 games doesn't leave teams too many opportunities. Getting ahead or falling behind early can be detrimental to a team's playoff chances.
Week 3 is very important, a "make-or-break" of sorts.
Making the playoffs after starting the season 0-2 is difficult. In fact, teams that go that road have only a 12 percent chance of making the postseason. And starting 0-3 makes it virtually impossible. Since the NFL adopted the six-team-per-conference playoff model, only three have gone into the postseason after starting 0-3, and none have won the Super Bowl.
There is a sense of urgency for the winless teams this week. A "win or go home" mentality that leaves fans, coaches and players alike feeling the panic.
According to the predictions, some teams will sink to the bottom of the ocean this week. Let's take a look.
