Sport Of the 4 awful winless NFL teams, which will be last to win a game?
Six teams on upset alert for Week 4 in the NFL
Here we identify six teams on upset alert in NFL Week 4. Tennessee Titans at Atlanta Falcons (-3.5)Falcons QB Matt Ryan has thrown six interceptions in three games. If Tennessee’s edge rushers can bring the heat Sunday in Atlanta, then the secondary should benefit from one or two more.What this game may boil down to is whether Titans QB Marcus Mariota can get on the same page with his receiving corps. He opened the season with three touchdowns against Cleveland but has just one since.
Usually there is one team every few years that looks like it could go 0-16. This season, there are four.
They can’t all go 0-16 because they end up playing each other. Theand play twice. The Dolphins face the on Sunday. The have dates left against the Dolphins and Jets.
Through the first five weeks of the season, all four teams look shockingly bad. A team like the, which had an 0-4 start before a win last Sunday, didn’t look like the type of team that could go two or three months without winning a game. They lost two games on last-second field goals. The Broncos at least looked competitive. The four remaining winless teams look hopeless.
Bills’ Jordan Phillips responds to trash talk from ‘bum’ Taylor Lewan

The biggest shot was fired by Bills defensive lineman Shaq Lawson, who was not impressed when asked about Lewan and the Tennessee offensive line after the game.
It’s too early to talk about 0-16, but it’s not too early to wonder which of these teams will be the last one in the winless group. If any of these four teams don’t score a win against each other, it might be a while.
Bengals have almost won twice
The Bengals already had a shot at two wins, so perhaps they’re in the same category as the Broncos and a little better than their record. But only a little. The Bengals outplayed the Seahawks but lost by two points on the road, then led at the Buffalo Bills until Buffalo took a lead in the final two minutes. But the three losses are troubling. There were absolute blowouts against the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers. Losing at home last Sunday to an 0-3-1 Arizona Cardinals team, and looking awful most of the game, was really disheartening.
Six teams on upset alert in NFL Week 7
Week 7 offers plenty of intriguing matchups, and these six teams are on upset watch.We’re putting six teams on upset alert heading into Sunday’s NFL Week 7 action, and chances are at least a few of them will succumb.
The Bengals seem capable of beating a team better than them, so maybe it happens soon. Otherwise, a Nov. 24 matchup against the Steelers might be their first good shot at a win. Then again, the Bengals were already blown out by the Steelers once. They might be waiting until those games against the Jets and Dolphins in December.
Jets have missed Sam Darnold
Presumably, the Jets will look a lot better when quarterback Sam Darnold returns this week. They won’t be good because they’ll still be poorly coached, and who knows how much a bout with mono took out of Darnold, but they won’t look as bad as they have to this point. They had 39 straight drives without a touchdown. Their defense and special teams has scored three touchdowns and the offense has only two. Darnold will change that. Still, games against the Cowboys, Patriots and Jaguars are coming up. Nov. 4 against the Dolphins might be the first win. After that first Dolphins game the Jets play the Giants, Redskins, Bengals and Dolphins again, so they shouldn’t be winless into mid-December.

Can coaching change help Washington?
Washington has a new coach after firing Jay Gruden, but the same owner, front office and roster so this thing isn’t going to get a lot better. After competing against the Eagles in Week 1, Washington has four double-digit losses in a row. Each loss has been worse than the last one: 10, 16, 21, 26.
Of course, Washington plays at Miami this week so that’s a great chance for a win. If they don’t win that one,for a while. The Jets game on Nov. 17 is at home, at least. Interim coach Bill Callahan might want to win at Miami this week, or Washington could go a long time before scoring a victory.
Dolphins have been horrendous
Even with many teams looking horrible this season, let’s not forget that the Dolphins have been worst of all. Their minus-137 point differential through four games seems impossible. They’re entirely inept on offense and defense. It’s a total mess. Their plan to tank worked too well. The Dolphins turned themselves into perhaps the worst non-expansion team in the Super Bowl era.
Yet, if they win one game nobody will remember them. We’ll remember the 0-16 teams forever but nobody recalls who went 1-15. The Redskins game this week is at least winnable. An Oct. 28 game at 1-4 Pittsburgh would seem somewhat winnable, but probably not for Miami. There are two games against the Jets and one against the Bengals. The Dolphins are ridiculously bad, but if you give them five winnable games, they should get one win. Maybe.
Despite hopes from Jaguars owner, Jalen Ramsey unlikely to play vs. Saints
It looks like Jaguars owner Shad Khan was mistaken. Khan, who has seemingly been overly optimistic about the Jalen Ramsey situation ever since his trade demand became public, said earlier this week that he expected Ramsey to play in Week 6. That was apparently news to Ramsey, and his camp soon put out word that he hadn’t committed to playing this week. Indeed, it “would be a major surprise if he plays this week,” tweets Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.
The Dolphins still look like the team most likely to be the last to win a game, simply because in a land of horrendous teams they’re clearly the worst. But if the Dolphins win on Sunday, Washington takes the lead in the race nobody wants to win. So tune in to Redskins-Dolphins to see what happens. Or don’t. Please don’t.
