First Overall Pick Watch – Week 9

A new weekly feature where college and pro football meet, the NFL draft. 10 of last 11 teams who got the first overall pick have finished with 2 or fewer wins. There is no reason to think this year will be any different.

Say Good-Bye

These teams got their third win this past week:

  • Washington Redskins

Somethings Gotta Give

No games feature two teams with exactly two wins this week.

Still Alive

8 teams still have two wins or less. Wins are in parenthesis. Games listed are against other teams on this list.

  • Atlanta Falcons (2) – @TB
  • Houston Texans (2) – JAX, @JAC
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (0) – @HOU, HOU
  • Minnesota Vikings (1) – none
  • New York Giants (2) – none
  • Pittsburgh Steelers (2) – none
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0) – ATL

The Front Runner

The state of Florida continues to just own these rankings. Now Jacksonville and Tampa Bay are the only two teams with no wins, the Vikings are the only other team with one win. All seven of the remaining teams are playing this week. Minnesota plays on a short weak against the just eliminated Washington Redskins. So they have another chance to add some distance. Houston is at Arizona, giving them a chance to get off this list. Pittsburgh is hosting BaltimoreBuffalo [ed- B-Bo pointed out that it’s Buffalo, not Baltimore] and the Giants are hosting Oakland, so those two teams also have decent chances to exit this week.
