We've put another Sunday in the books. Here's how the race for the first overall pick in the 2014 draft is shaping up after a day in which the Cleveland Browns put one in the win column, and in doing so, got themselves off this list, at least for now.
The Jacksonville Jaguars took their latest beating from the Seattle Seahawks, losing the game 45 to 17. Even though the Jaguars mustered 17 points, the game was never even remotely close, and the Jaguars never looked like a team that could hang with, well, anyone.
The best line from the commentators went something like this: "The Seattle Seahawks are expecting to compete for a championship, while the Jaguars are just looking to get better week in and week out." The good news here is yes, the Jaguars are probably getting better each week, but then again, it's hard for them to get any worse than they currently are. At this rate, this team will be drafting first overall next offseason.
After a pair of heart-breaking losses, the Minnesota Vikings have a long, tough battle ahead of them to make it back to the playoffs. Christian Ponder has been mediocre, Adrian Peterson hasn't been able to carry the whole offense, and the Vikings' defense simply isn't good enough to hold opponents' point totals down.
The Vikings don't look like the worst of the worst right now, but their inability to win games may spell doom soon. Coming off a playoff appearance, the Vikings had hoped to improve upon last season's effort, and with Minnesota circling the drain, head coach Leslie Frazier may lose his locker room if they lose a couple more games.
New York Giants
I hate to put a team sporting a two-time Super Bowl winning quarterback on this list, but after an embarrassing 38 to 0 hammering at the hands of the Carolina Panthers, it's impossible to ignore just how bad Eli Manning and the New York Giants have been so far this year.
To put the Giants' offensive woes into perspective, Eli Manning has thrown seven interceptions after just three games. He leads the league in completions to the wrong team by a whole three picks. That's not the mark of a great quarterback, and he's the single biggest reason the Giants are making an appearance on such a dubious list.
