Even when a team's not that good, there's usually some reason to watch them play, be it a promising rookie, a retiring veteran, or a new head coach. But to kick off this NFL season, there are teams are just plain unwatchable, and that's a problem, considering we've managed to sort out FIVE of them.
5. Denver Broncos
On paper, the Broncos aren't terrible. They have former Super Bowl MVPs at quarterback and linebacker, plus a a new defensive-minded head coach. But somehow they're 0-4 and haven't showed a semblance of life. If a team can be two games back of the post-AB Raiders in the standings, they're probably really really bad.
4. New York Jets
Before the season started, this team looked like it could actually make some noise in the AFC East. However, losing Sam Darnold to mono just put them on a downward spiral, especially considering backup Trevor Siemian immediately went down with a season-ending injury. This team has been rolling with a third-string QB and might run Le'Veon Bell into the ground by Week 8.
3. Cincinnati Bengals
When the Bengals led in the fourth quarter in Seattle Week 1, there was a very strange feeling of hope in Cincinnati. It went away pretty quickly though. The Seahawks won by a point, the 49ers blew them out the next week, and Andy Dalton reverted to his old self. A.J. Green isn't playing, which is a good excuse for the losses, but the Bengals really showed how terrible they are when they were blown out in Pittsburgh on Monday night.
2. Washington Redskins
This team is clearly rebuilding, but the expectations were probably a little higher than an 0-4 start. Getting embarrassed by the Giants is not something of which to be proud, even if Daniel Jones looks that good. Dwayne Haskins had an abysmal first game, Case Keenum has looked just as bad and was benched as a result, and there's absolutely nothing positive about this team right now.
1. Miami Dolphins
There's no excuse for this one. The Dolphins are just plain awful, and there's no nice way to put it. They're 0-4 and losing their games by an average score of 41-7. This team has struggled for the most part ever since Dan Marino's retirement, but this is a new low. They should probably go up against the University of Miami because they won't be able to defeat any NFL team this year.
