As we enter week eight of the 2011 NFL season, there are still three winless teams remaining in the league.

The Indianapolis Colts, Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams are a combined 0-19 so far this season.

Unlike most years, there is one huge positive about finishing the season winless or with the worst record in the NFL.

That positive is Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.

There is no such thing as a sure thing in the NFL, but the closest you may ever get is with Luck.

The chase for Luck has become so popular, that the painful road has been dubbed with the title "Suck for Luck".

At this point, the three winless teams lead the race.

One, however, is already being counted out.

The St. Louis Rams have their franchise quarterback in Sam Bradford. Despite the slow start, they are still expected to pull away from the Dolphins and Colts as the season progresses.

Indianapolis and Miami, on the other hand, could both very well go 0-16.

The Colts, without Peyton Manning, have been a joke offensively and defensively all season.

This weekend they were embarrassed on Monday Night Football by the Saints, falling 62-7.

The Dolphins just can't catch a break. Whether it's Matt Moore or Chad Henne at quarterback, the offense is lacking.

Following this weekends collapse against Tim Tebow and the Broncos, it looks pretty hopeless for Miami.

The Colts are now 0-7, while the Dolphins sit at 0-6.

If you compare the rest of their seasons, things look pretty equal.

Indianapolis will likely be crushed by every opponent excluding their two games against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Miami faces a similar fate. Their best chance for a win came last week against the Broncos. They face divisional opponents and the entire NFC East.

Their best opportunities will likely come against the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins.

Things are not looking good for either team.

The Colts look like the worst team, but the Dolphins face a much more difficult schedule to close the season.

Right now, the race is tight enough to result in a coin flip. That's something that could happen if neither of these teams get anything going.
