21. San Diego Chargers (21)
It’s going to end up being too little, too late for the Chargers, but they can hang their hats on the fact that they are a good football team.
The Chargers have outscored their opponents by 22 points on the year. The Texans team they just beat has been outscored by 42 points on the year.
Unfortunately for the Chargers, they have very little hope to make the playoffs, and the Texans are leading their division. NFL stands for “Not Fair League.”
22. Houston Texans (16)
Things are beginning to fall apart for the Texans. Brock Osweiler has officially become a bust. The Titans are right on the Texans heels, and it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Colts pass them by years end.
The Texans have the scoring margin of a 4-7 or 5-6 team. It would be shocking if they held on to their division lead at the level they are playing.
23. Green Bay Packers (26)
You didn’t count the Packers out of this did you? With a nice win to end the skid, the Packers are now two games back of the Lions. They have already beaten the Lions once, meaning if they can take the second game, they would only need to tie them to beat them.
If any 5-6 team is capable of catching fire, it is this one. Aaron Rodgers is still an elite quarterback, and has weapons around him. It should be an interesting 5 games.
24. Carolina Panthers (18)
This is likely the nail in the coffin for the Panthers. Every game they won in close fashion a year ago, they have seemed to lose this season.
The best they could possibly finish is 9-7, which likely won’t get it done considering the way the Falcons, Bucs, and Saints are playing.
