29.) Cleveland Browns (0-1)

It wasn’t too much a surprise to see that the Browns started the season with a loss. Going up against the Steelers, it would have been a big upset if the Browns were able to beat their division rival. Even though they lost, the Browns were competitive in the game. If they play like they did against the Steelers in the weeks to come, they likely will be able to get a win sooner rather than later.

28.) Chicago Bears (0-1)

One of the near upsets in Week 1 featured the Bears putting a big scare into the Falcons. On what could have been a game-winning drive, Jordan Howard dropped what would have been a potential game-winning touchdown pass. Even though it was a tough loss for the Bears, a close loss is encouraging.

27.) Buffalo Bills (1-0)

With a new regime running things in Buffalo, the Bills were able to get a Week 1 win against the Jets. While beating the Jets isn’t much of an accomplishment, a win is a win in the NFL. LeSean McCoy had a very good game as expected, as he totaled over 100 rushing yards. To truly see what type of team Buffalo is, we will have to see them against some better competition.
