At the halfway point in 2010, here is the Titan Sized power rankings of the bottom teams in the NFL.
32. Buffalo Bills (0-8) – No quality wins (no wins at all actually) and have been outscored 83 points by opponents. At least Ryan Fitzpatrick and Fred Jackson look good.
31. Carolina Panthers (1-7) – No quality wins and have been outscored by 96 points. If the Bills had a win, the Panthers would easily be ranked last in the league.
30. Dallas Cowboys (1-7) – No quality wins and have been outscored by 71 points. Tony Romo’s medical insurance must have also covered the heart removal operation for the Cowboys.
29. Denver Broncos (2-6) – Defeated the Tennessee Titans (26-20), but have been outscored by 69 points. Is there anyone harder to cover than Brandon Lloyd, right now?
28. Arizona Cardinals (3-5) – Inexplicably defeated the New Orleans Saints (30-20), but have been outscored by 68 points. How in the world did this team beat the New Orleans Saints?!
27. San Francisco 49ers (2-6) – No quality wins and have been outscored by 41 points. Troy Smith could be the catalyst that turns around the 49ers’ season and saves Mike Singletary’s job.
26. Cincinnati Bengals (2-6) – Defeated the Baltimore Ravens (15-10), but have been outscored by 23 points. This team shows a lot of grit, but is ultimately one of the biggest disappointments of 2010.
25. Detroit Lions (2-6) – No quality wins, but have outscored their opponents by 15 points. After all the hype and first-round additions, this team cannot seem to shake the identity of lovable losers.
24. Jacksonville Jaguars (4-4) – Defeated the Indianapolis Colts (31-28), but have been outscored by 61 points. This team rises and falls on the inconsistent shoulders of David Garrard.
23. Seattle Seahawks (4-4) – Defeated the San Diego Chargers (27-20), but have been outscored by 51 points. Back-to-back blowouts are a troubling sign for this young team.
22. Washington Redskins (4-4) – Defeated the Philadelphia Eagles (17-12) and Green Bay Packers (16-13), but have been outscored by 15 points. Forget the playoffs without Donovan McNabb.
21. Houston Texans (4-4) – Defeated the Indianapolis Colts (34-24) and Kansas City Chiefs (35-31), but have been outscored by 33 points. Another 8-8 season seems inevitable.
Honestly, it is difficult to see any of these teams making it into the playoffs. However, the Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks or San Francisco 49ers still have an outside shot to make a run and win their divisions. The wild card is not an option for any of these teams after their poor starts.
