30.) Baltimore Ravens (0-3)

After being a playoff team just one season ago, the Baltimore Ravens find themselves winless after three games. The schedule to start the season didn’t do the Ravens any help with back-to-back weeks on the West Coast.

In a must-win game against the Cincinnati Bengals at home in Week 3, the Ravens’ defense let them down late in the game, and they lost 28-24. Starting the season 0-3 makes it nearly impossible for the Ravens to make the playoffs in 2015, especially with the hot start by the Bengals in their division.

29.) Detroit Lions (0-3)

The Lions’ disappointing 2015 season continued on Sunday Night Football against the Denver Broncos, as they were handed their third loss of the season. Matthew Stafford and the Lions’ offense struggled against the Broncos’ defense.

Stafford totaled 282 passing yards, but his two interceptions were very costly. As expected, the Lions’ running game never got going against a talented Broncos’ defense, as they totaled just 28 rushing yards.

28.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2)

Week 3 was a pretty lackluster game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as they were only able to total nine points. One of the bright spots in the loss was the chemistry that Jameis Winston and Mike Evans are developing.

Evans was able to total seven receptions and 101 receiving yards in the loss. The biggest downside for Winston so far is that he once again had a low completion percentage, which is something he needs to work on.
