Three Teams Are Undefeated; Many Teams Are Unwatchable PDF Print E-mail
Sports

As the Saints polished off the Dolphins, a graphic on Fox noted that it’s the first time in an N.F.L. season that three teams are undefeated after Week 7: the Saints, the Colts and the Broncos.

It also seems to be the first time in N.F.L. history that so many teams look so utterly helpless.

The roll call today included the Bucs, the Rams, the Chiefs, the Browns. The Panthers and the Raiders have two victories each, but after their performances today, they deserve to be on the list.

Which team’s season deserves to be euthanized?

The bottom line from Week 7 in the NFL: It was the best Sunday to be a bettor, and the worst Sunday to be a bookmaker.

”I can’t remember an NFL season with this many bad teams,” said Las Vegas Hilton sports book director Jay Kornegay, who has been in the business for 22 years. “No doubt, it was the worst day ever for the books.

“‘We can’t attract money on these poor teams. We keep losing on the same teams. They are not even close to covering.”
