4 of 4

25. Green Bay Packers (5-6)

Last Week: 28 (+3)

I'm a bit lower on the Packers than a lot of people, but I just don't get what there is to like. Is Jordan Love good? Meh. Are their receivers good? Meh. Is the defense good? Meh. It's just a lot of meh for me to consider.

26. Chicago Bears (4-8)

Last Week: 29 (+3)

The Bears accidentally stumbled into a victory over the Vikings after a debacle of a game from Josh Dobbs. The Bears have a glimmer of hope for the future. It will come down to how their next couple of offseasons go.

27. New York Jets (4-7)

Last Week: 23 (-4)

There was a time when the Jets were still being viewed as legitimate contenders for playoff seeding. Now they are hoping a 40-year-old man who believes in chemtrails to bounce back from an Achilles tear in record time to take them to the promised land. It's honestly the saddest thing in football.

28. Tennessee Titans (4-7)

Last Week: 26 (-)

Vrabel keeps fighting, but what do you do with this conglomerate of nonsense on the roster? The Titans are a quarterback away. Will Levis is not it. A win over Carolina still counts, I guess.

29. Arizona Cardinals (2-10)

Last Week: 27 (-2)

Kyler Murray is back, but I am not sure that it is making a huge difference. Arizona was everyone's pick for the NFL's worst team at the beginning of the season. At this point in the season, they are still fighting for that honor.

30. New York Giants (4-8)

Last Week: 30 (-)

I hate having to write about the Giants each week. Like, what do you say? Daniel Jones is out for the year and they have problems at almost every position except running back. It's a chore to watch them and it's a chore to write about them.

31. New England Patriots (2-9)

Last Week: 31 (-)

The Patriots are to the point in which they are playing two quarterbacks. This might work for a few high school teams, but in the NFL, you will get rolled. I think we are on the Patriots' darkest timeline.

32. Carolina Panthers (1-10)

Last Week: 32 (-)

Frank Reich is gone, but the heap of nonsense that the Panthers call a roster remains. I would not be surprised to see them play better in the coming weeks, but I can't imagine it will turn into more wins. I honestly can't believe that they even have one win.
