This season there seems to be a serious "Suck for Luck" campaign going around the NFL.  There have been so many teams that just haven't lived up to expectations this year—case in point, the Indianapolis Colts. 

The Colts are normally such a powerhouse team backed by Peyton Manning, but with him out for neck injuries the team has plummeted to last place in the league. Even Reggie Wayne has been unproductive for the team.

Then there is Miami, which really hasn't done well in a while because it has had QB struggles, and Matt Moore has certainly not been the answer there.  Reggie Bush brought a little spark to South Beach but he isn't turning the season around anytime soon.

The Rams are another team that just can't get all of their parts to work.  Sam Bradford could be a great QB but he has no one to throw the ball to. 

Next up for hopeless teams? The Minnesota Vikings.  Adrian Peterson is the only thing they have going for them. 

The Carolina Panthers have had trouble actually getting a win, they have been playing four quarters to the fullest every game (with the exception of this past weekend), and still can't convert to a W.  This one is a combo of special teams and defense problems, but I wouldn't consider them completely hopeless.  They have a tough schedule left, but Cam Newton is definitely driven for a few more wins.
