Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: The_Sponge: NFC Least: 5 wins

Seattle after their bye week:  5 wins

Hey, an NFC East team WILL win tonight. (Offer void in event of a tie.)


We could end up with an NFC East that ends up 3-3 vs their division. Oh, and it is the Iggles turn to win a division game.

Per the article, the Steelers were at least .500 at the time reported and ended up 9-7.  Maybe the overall percentage was worse, but at least one team was even.  I would argue that that's better.

The Steelers also had more wins than the bottom three teams in the divisions combined, both in 1984 and in 2020.

Marcus Aurelius: There may be other divisions that are occasionally worse, and other teams that are occasionally worse, but no other sports teams are as perennially bad as Philadelphia sports teams.  I grew up not knowing an Eagles team over .500.  My earliest memory is of the 1964 Phillies, who were going to win the World Series.  First professional team to make 10,000 losses, the Phillies.  That's quite an accomplishment.


Yo, Rip Van Winkle Von HairShirt, may I draw your attention to Super Bowl LII?

I dunno.  Bad teams playing each other sometimes will lead to high-scoring shoot-outs that are kinda fun to watch.

But it's entirely possible you end up being right.


Browns v Bengals was skated to such and was quite good.... tong should suck thoroughly though.

It might go full fractal Busey on the Fark Football Scale.
