28. Atlanta Falcons, 1-6 (26)

Has there ever been an NFL team this proficient at losing painfully? I thought the Chargers had this locked up for years, but the Falcons have taken the mantle ever since, well, you know… 28-3. Is it a curse? No, probably just horrendous defense and weird happenings on offense.

27. Dallas Cowboys, 2-5 (24)

Remember when people were optimistic about this team? Remember when they had Dak Prescott at quarterback and people were wondering if he should get paid? He should. But I’m not so sure about their front office (they will).

26. Washington Whatchamacallits, 2-5 (31)

Their defense is legitimate, with a front that is downright frightening. They hammered the Cowboys into submission, and though they are offensively challenged, they remain dangerous because of the violence and skill of that front seven on defense. Still, they have no name.

25. Minnesota Vikings, 1-5 (27)

They climbed during their bye week, but they also lost a good share of their pass rush this week through injury or trade. They are here because of what other teams around them did this week. There is no guarantee they will be this high next week, folks.
