Buccaneers QB Josh McCown got extremely emotional after Sunday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons – he has yet to win a game as the team’s starter this season.

Despite how almost historically bad the Buccaneers are playing right now – and that is saying something for a franchise that lost its first 26 games as a franchise – the NFC South is just plain bad. With losses by the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers (last year’s playoff representatives from the division) not a single team in the NFC South has a winning record. As terrible as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are, all they need to do is get hot against a trio of fairly cold teams: the Bengals, the Bears, and Washington, and Tampa Bay could actually be in the division title hunt. That says one of two things: 1. There are a lot of terrible teams in the NFL right now, 2. The NFC South is this year’s worst division in football.
Here are the five worst teams in the NFL heading into Week 11:
5. Chicago Bears – Last year the Bears set a franchise record for points allowed – but they made up for it by scoring more points than any team in franchise history besides the 1985 Bears. But at the rate they’re going now, they will break the record for points allowed again. Heads will roll if that happens.
4. Tennessee Titans – RB Shonn Greene fumbling at the one-yard line is basically the story of the Titans season: Just when things start to look positive for even a moment, everything crashes and burns in the most interesting ways possible.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars – At home, on the road, overseas, nowhere on planet Earth can the Jaguars find a place to avoid getting embarrassed week after week after week.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – If the rest of the team played with as much emotion on the field as QB Josh McCown displays off the field, this wouldn’t look like such a hopeless team.
1. Oakland Raiders – Last week I asked which number would be higher: Raiders wins at the end of the season (?) or Peyton Manning TDs by half-time (2). With only two of the final seven games against non-playoff teams, it will most likely be the latter.
