Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Bucs didn't play this week, but still found a way to lose. At the beginning of the day, the Titans and Rams provided them company as winless NFL teams. Now, the Bucs are all alone as the target of ridicule.

Detroit Lions. The Bucs can thank the Lions for leaving them alone in the Winless Club. They lost to the Rams ... you know, that football team in St. Louis. This is what can happen, Rams, when you let Steven Jackson do some of his running when he's near the other team's endzone.

Jacksonville Jaguars. This is the other team that lost to someone winless. It's hard to be that fired up about it, though, because it's not completely unexpected from Jacksonville. Really, nothing they could do would surprise me. I fully expect them to lose to the Chiefs by 65 next week, then beat the Giants by 40.

New York Jets. Admit it, Jets fans, that one hurt. The Manchize threw for 265 yards and 2 TDs, Thomas Jones(notes) broke the 100-yard mark, you bottled up the Dolphins run game, Chad Henne(notes) was Chad Henne, and you outgained the Fish 378 to 104 ... and you still lost. Oof. That would hurt even if it came against some random NFC team you didn't care about, but to the Dolphins? After all that trash-talking? That's got to feel like a good, solid kick to the pancreas.

Cleveland Browns. After the game, running back Jamal Lewis(notes) announced that he was retiring at the end of the season. Here's what I'm wondering: Why freakin' wait? What's the plan, to squeeze a couple more months of enjoyment out of your career? Good luck, my man. Hope you like getting drilled at the line of scrimmage.

Oakland Raiders. It wasn't an all-together terrible performance by the Raiders today, but it was the 13th straight time that they've lost to the Chargers, which can't feel good. It's the longest active such streak in the NFL.

Buffalo Bills. The Bills had been building a little momentum with consecutive wins, but that all ground to a halt today when the Texans drubbed them. There is good news, though. Terrell Owens(notes) scored his second touchdown of the season, so that investment is really starting to pay off.

New York Giants. Remember Week 5, when everyone thought that the Giants were really good? Man. we were so young and naive back then! Everyone's got to grow up sometime, though.
