The 'not quite as bad as the teams in the cellar' tier

Finishing just ahead of the bottom-feeders are the teams who qualify as not being quite as bad but still pretty tough to watch. Look friends! We have already mentioned two Eagles rivals, the Washington Commanders AND the New York Giants.

28. Washington Commanders (-9.3)
27 Carolina Panthers (-9.0)
26. Tennessee Titans (-7.3)
25. Cincinnati Bengals (-7.0)
24. NY Jets (-6.3)

The 'we didn't expect anything from these guys anyway' tier

No one expected much from the teams on this list. The Pittsburgh Steelers, at 2-1, might be the cream of this crop despite owning a season point differential of -14. The Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Vikings, New England Patriots, and Houston Texans have a combined record of 3-9 and have collectively been outscored by a 289-244 margin.

It's hard to win games when you consistently give up more points than you score. How's that for some estute analysis?

23. Jacksonville Jaguars (-6.0)
22. Pittsburgh Steelers (-4.7)
21. Minnesota Vikings (-4.3)
19. New England Patriots (-2.3)
19. Houston Texans (-2.3)
