Baltimore and Jacksonville play tonight on Monday Night Football and while the Jags aren't scaring anyone (well, except you, Tennessee), they're currently out of the hunt for Andrew Luck. Three teams are currently winless in the NFL: St. Louis, Miami and Indianapolis.


The most surprising of these may actually be St. Louis, who probably expected more out of Sam Bradford and a core of talented recievers. Indy, on the other hand, knew it was headed for a long year once Peyton Manning went down and Miami, well, Miami has been in the basement since you-know-who retired.
In the absence of Luck pulling a John Elway, who will likely end up with the Stanford star?

Unfortunately for Colts fans, I'm giving them the least likely chance of going 0-16. The Colts still have two matchups against the Jags and two against the Titans. They're bound to win one or two of those.

Similarly, the Rams have two meetings with the 1-5 Cardinals plus Seattle at home. No way they lose all three of those matchups.

At the moment I'm leaning toward Miami "winning". It should be no surprise that the Dolphins have the toughest remaining schedule: every other team in the AFC East currently has a winning record. Miami still has to play both NY teams, the Patriots, the Bills twice plus a hot KC team. There's no conceivable game left on their schedule where they would be favored; their easiest opponents left are 0.500 Dallas and Washington and near-0.500 Philly. There's a really good chance Miami doesn't compete in a game the remainder of the year. Which would certainly be ironic.
Of course, in the ensuing weeks, other teams may join the contest, so we'll return to this next week. In the meantime, Go Dolphins?
