There has been a lot bad football played so far this season. We have witnessed more blowouts than we're used to seeing, and we have a heated race on our hands for the worst record in the league.

There is still a lot of football to be played, and some of those bad teams will turn things around. For some, that turnaround may even begin in Week 4. For the following three teams, however, the losses will continue this week.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs actually played pretty well last week for a change. They took the Chargers down to the wire before losing 20-17. Unfortunately, that is about as well as they can play and they still lost. It can't be easy for the team to handle that realization.

Their Week 4 opponent, the Minnesota Vikings, aren't serious playoff contenders, but they are starting to come together. Adrian Peterson is rounding into form after a little bit of a slow start and Donovan McNabb is looking better with each passing week.

This Sunday, the Chiefs' season will continue heading in the wrong direction.

Seattle Seahawks

Like the Chiefs, the Seahawks were a 2010 playoff team that was expected to be at least a competitive team in 2011. Like the Chiefs, the season hasn't gone according to plan for them.

They have managed a win this season, which is more than some other teams can say, but it doesn't change anything about their outlook.

The Seahawks' defense was gashed by the 49ers in Week 1 and the Steelers in Week 2. Their offense has been every bit as bad. Their are finding out what any Vikings fans could have told them before the season. Tarvaris Jackson is not the answer at quarterback.

Indianapolis Colts

Any Colts fan that continues to invest time and money into this team should be given some sort of medal. Their offense is anemic, their defense that was masked by a good offense is being exposed as a bad defense and most of all, they just aren't fun to watch.

Things were bad enough when Kerry Collins was running the team, but now they've gotten worse. Collins suffered a concussion in their game last week and Curtis Painter is expected to start in his place.

Their Week 4 opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, got a big win last week against Atlanta. Their quest to break through to the postseason will continue with an easy win over Indianapolis.
