Top Ten Worst NFL Teams
Heading into Week 6, now is a good time to take a look at the bottom of the NFL power rankings. These teams have virtually no chance of making the playoffs. In fact, they may as well look toward next year because their 2009 NFL season is basically over.
1. St. Louis Rams
The Rams are just horrible. Their defense showed some signs of improvement early on but they’ve regressed in recent weeks. Their offense? It’s offensive.
2. Oakland Raiders
The Raiders don’t have a horrible defense but their offense is so bad that they earn this spot in the NFL power rankings. JaMarcus Russell has been putrid and makes it almost impossible for Oakland to win.
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
When it comes to the offensive side of the field, the Bucs have decent talent. But add in poor coaching, poor chemistry and a bad defense and this team is embarrassing.
4. Cleveland Browns
Even though the Browns pulled out an ugly win last week, they are still a very bad team. Don’t expect this team to win more than a handful of contests all year.
5. Detroit Lions
A year after not winning a game, the Lions are still bad. But compared to last year, there are definite signs of improvement.
6. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs don’t have much talent — and it shows on the field. Their rebuilding project is immense.
7. Tennessee Titans
A year after making the playoffs, the Titans are 0-5. Their team isn’t horrible but their defense has been exposed and their offense is much less explosive.
8. Carolina Panthers
This Panthers squad could still possibly turn it around but it needs its star players to play better.
9. Buffalo Bills
Why is this team so bad? They have very good talent offensively. Their defense can play. But for whatever reason, they can’t put it together.
10. Washington Redskins
The only reason the Redskins are 2-3 is because they’ve had a very easy schedule. Once their schedule toughens up, expect the losses to mount.
