Indianapolis Colts, St. Louis Rams, Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars:
Three of these poor teams had no wins coming into this week, so I wouldn't really say that one more winless week dashed their hopes, but not having a win six weeks into the season pretty much seals the deal.
The Vikings snagged their only win against the Arizona Cardinals and play in the toughest division in football. The Jaguars aren't faring much better—their only win was in Week 1 against a Titans team that didn't seem to know what it was doing. They've now lost five in a row.
The Colts have proven themselves to be a one-man team. With Peyton Manning out for the season, the Colts are going to miss the playoffs. This will be the second time that has happened since Manning was drafted.
The Rams have had some unlucky injuries this season, but even so, no wins is something to be deeply concerned about. To make matters worse, Sam Bradford has suffered a high ankle sprain. Even with Brandon Lloyd in the lineup now, they might get only two or three wins.
The Dolphins may be the worst team in the league. Their 24-6 loss to the Jets on Monday night dropped them to 0-5. As bad as they were before the season started, the loss of Chad Henne for the year has made them even worse. They should at least be happy they'll get Andrew Luck as a consolation prize.
Of all the one-loss teams out there, maybe the Jaguars had the worst chance of turning it around. Blaine Gabbert has been far from impressive in his first few games and he obviously isn't going to be a difference-maker for the rest of the season.
