Which 0-2 NFL team has best chance of winning in Week 3?

Nine teams started the 2015 NFL season with 0-2 records.

Some weren’t huge surprises, such as the rebuilding Chicago Bears. But no one forecasted the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts, Baltimore Ravens, Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles to all be without a win after two weeks.

Which teams will finally get into the win column in Week 3?

We ranked the probability of every 0-2 team winning this week, from least likely to most likely:

Chicago Bears (at SEA): Once again, the Bears can’t stop anyone on defense. Jay Cutler probably won’t play. Seattle is 0-2 but heading home. Chicago’s trip to the Pacific Northwest isn’t going to end well.

New Orleans Saints (at CAR): The Saints offense lacks punch and Drew Brees has a bum shoulder. The Panthers defense isn’t going to make either problem any better in Week 3.

Philadelphia Eagles (at NYJ): A struggling, run-starved offense meets the NFL’s most disruptive defense of the first two weeks. What could possibly go wrong?

Detroit Lions (vs. DEN): Facing Peyton Manning isn’t the problem. Detroit keeping Von Miller and DeMarcus Ware from shattering Matthew Stafford into little pieces is.

Baltimore Ravens (vs. CIN): Baltimore looks like a team capable of both beating anyone and losing to anyone. Cincinnati swept the Ravens in 2014.

New York Giants (vs. WAS): New York was just a few fateful minutes away from starting this season 2-0. Has back-to-back fourth quarter collapses sapped any and all confidence from the Giants? Washington can play some defense.

Indianapolis Colts (at TEN): The Colts haven’t lost to Tennessee since 2011. In fact, Indianapolis is 11-1 against the Titans over the last seven years. Can Marcus Mariota finally provide parity to the rivalry? With Andrew Luck reeling, now is the time.

Houston Texans (vs. TB): There’s very little to like about Houston’s quarterback situation, but you’d have to believe J.J. Watt and company will make life very difficult for rookie Jameis Winston.

Seattle Seahawks (vs. CHI): As Week 2 proved, no win in the NFL is a lock. Just ask the Ravens, Saints and Dolphins. Every win must be earned. The pissed off Seahawks will get theirs against a really bad Bears team. It’ll be DEFCON 1 in Seattle if the Bears spoil the Seahawks’ home opener.
