NFL Picks Week 4: Jacksonville Jaguars Among 3 Teams That Don't Stand a Chance

1 of 4

    Every week the NFL features great games that go down to the wire. Week 3 was no exception as 12 of the 16 games were decided by seven points or less. 

    I'm sure there will be plenty of games like that in Week 4, but I'm not here to talk about that. What I'm interested in is the games that will be blowouts. Games where one team doesn't stand a chance. 

    Looking at the Week 4 schedule, there are quite a few potential teams that fit that bill. 

    Read on to find out which three teams don't stand a chance of winning in Week 4. 

Jacksonville Jaguars

2 of 4

    The Jacksonville Jaguars somehow managed to squeak out a win in Week 1, but have looked putrid in their past two games and now the New Orleans Saints come to town on Sunday. 

    The Jaguars haven't played pretty football the past two games. They surrendered a safety in both games and their only touchdown came off a Hail Mary pass at the end of the half. 

    Blaine Gabbert might be a good quarterback one day, but that day isn't now. The Saints have scored at least 30 points in all three of their games and I don't envision the Jaguars defense keeping them in check. 

    With the Saints offense hitting on all cylinders, expect this game to get out of hand early. 

Denver Broncos

3 of 4

    The Denver Broncos face a tough task this week as they travel to Lambeau Field to take on the defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. 

    The Broncos have looked pedestrian in their first three games, struggling on both offense and defense. On the offensive side, they haven't gotten much out of the running game and Kyle Orton is turning the ball over too much. On defense, they are still adapting to John Fox's 4-3 defense and could be without one of their best defenders, Champ Bailey. 

    The Packers are one of only three teams that are still undefeated and yet, they haven't really dominated any team. That will change this week as they pummel the Broncos at home. 

Indianapolis Colts

4 of 4

    The Indianapolis Colts put together a great effort at on Sunday night, nearly shocking the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, don't expect to see a repeat of that performance this week.

    Last week was the Colts' "Super Bowl." With their backs against the wall at 0-2, the Colts knew another loss would all but put an end to any slim playoff chances they had. So the Colts gave it their all, playing in front of their fans and on national television. They nearly pulled off the upset, but came up just short. 

    You have to imagine the Colts will be deflated after that loss. They're now 0-3 and with the news that Peyton Manning is unlikely to play this season, that just about ends their season. 

    Expect to see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take advantage of that and dominate the Colts on Monday Night Football.
