DVOA: -20.1% (28th)

Weighted DVOA: -19.0% (26th)

This is a team that is not nearly as good as their record, but record is all that will matter when the season ends and the playoffs start. They have 9 wins right now and an easy game against the Chiefs to give them 10. In fact, in the AFC, 9 would probably get them a playoff spot. I don’t give them much chance in either of their two games against the Texans though and I don’t think they’ll win a playoff game.
