26. Seattle Seahawks

We were all shocked to see the Seattle Seahawks take out the Denver Broncos in Week 1, handing Russell Wilson a loss in his debut with his new franchise. Since then, they’ve lost two games including a 27-7 defeat at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers.

They were much closer in their Week 3 game at home but still couldn’t hold off Marcus Mariota and the Atlanta Falcons. In a quick-scoring game for 45 minutes, neither team could put up any points in the fourth and Geno Smith was intercepted by Richie Grant on a fourth-down play to close things out.

Not many were expecting Seattle to make much noise this season and that’s been the case ever since their surprise opening weekend win.

55. . . Previous: 16th. Pittsburgh Steelers. 25. team

25. Pittsburgh Steelers

It’s time for Mike Tomlin to seriously consider starting Kenny Pickett. The rookie might not be 100 percent ready to be a franchise quarterback in the NFL but Mitch Trubisky looked lost in the Pittsburgh Steelers’ loss to Cleveland on Thursday Night Football.

What was most frustrating for Steelers fans was seeing players open throughout the night, but the ball wasn’t always delivered accurately — at least not in the second half. For the first two quarters, the ball was getting there and Pittsburgh was leading 14-13. Then the accuracy issues popped up and Cleveland ran away with this one 29-17.

Even with T.J. Watt out for another month or two, the Steelers have enough talent to compete but Trubisky might hold them back too much.
