Hump Day: The second to last Loser Rankings of the season

1. Detroit Lions- Once again, they came close but fell short against the Colts. They have New Orleans at home on Sunday and go to Green Bay for the final game of the season. I still think the Lions are going to win a game this season. It just isn't possible to go 0-16 in the NFL. I could be wrong, but we'll see.

2. Kansas City Chiefs- A fourth quarter collapse caused this team to move into second place for the week. Also, Carl Peterson announced that he will resign at the end of the season.

3. St. Louis Rams- The other Missouri team has moved up a spot after losing as well. They lost to the Seahawks.

4. Cincinnati Bengals- The Bengals beat the Redskins. Here's something for you to digest: The Bengals have given up 358 points this season. The NFC West champion Arizona Cardinals have also given up 358 points. That's a crazy stat now!

5. Oakland Raiders- They've won more games on the road than they have at home. The question of the hour is, who will be the next coach of the Raiders?

Now the regular season standings:

1. Detroit Lions- 63 points

2. Cincinnati Bengals- 41 points

3. Kansas City Chiefs- 31 points

4. St. Louis Rams- 27 points

5. Oakland Raiders- 12 points

Analysis: The top four teams have all clinched a spot in the loser rankings. Detroit's clnched first place. Cincy has second place. The battle for third continues between KC and St. Louis. The Raiders don't have fifth place wrapped up, but they could after this weekend. The Raiders have Houston. Seattle is still in sixth place and they get the Jets and Arizona for their final two games. The Jets game will be tougher.

The Lions still have a chance to fall out of next week's rankings with a win.

Enjoy your Wednesday
