These NFL Teams Look Terrible, And It's Only Week 5

A handful of NFL teams are off to rough starts this year and may want to start thinking about next season.

We're entering week five of the NFL season, and some teams are looking forward to it more than others. 

The list of teams in total disarray certainly involves some of the usual suspects, but there are surprises in the list, too.

"From trading LeSean McCoy, letting Jeremy Maclin walk in free agency, trading quarterback Nick Foles for Sam Bradford. And everyone is resolute in believing that Chip Kelly has a plan — even though they're not 100 percent sure what it is," ESPN's Ashley Fox said in May.

After bringing in Sam Bradford at quarterback and DeMarco Murray to lead rushing efforts, the Eagles are off to a 1-3 start. And Murray is none too happy about his role in the whole thing.

And much of it comes back to quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who is struggling mightily. He's thrown two touchdowns and five interceptions through four games and has eclipsed 165 yards through the air in a game just once.

"His performance is, I think, dragging down the rest of the team. It's infecting the rest of the team. They don't believe he can do the basic things," Sports Illustrated's Phil Taylor said.

"How much blame goes on this coaching staff? He had a lot of success under Jim Harbaugh," another analyst said.

In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs came in looking for their third-straight winning season under head coach Andy Reid, but some unfortunate timing is putting that in jeopardy.

"Looks like the Chiefs season is in shambles right now. They're 1-3, but their season's not over. First of all, their three losses came to teams that are combined 12-0," KSHB's Frank Boal said.

Now, this isn't to say these teams are down and out for the 2015 season already — there's still plenty of football to be played. Plus, the 2011 Super Bowl-winning New England Patriots started off 1-3.

But that won't be easy for these teams to replicate. According to, the Chiefs and 49ers have just a 2 percent chance of making it to the Super Bowl; the Eagles sit at 1 percent.
