31. New York Giants

At this point, you kind of have to feel bad for Eli Manning.

A former two-time Super Bowl champion, it’s abundantly clear that he wants to be on the football field about as much as Jon Gruden wants to be on the sidelines.

To be abundantly honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if he retired mid-season.

With his team essentially eliminated from the playoffs less than 10 games into the season, an accomplishment in its own right, New York Giants fans received a much-needed reprieve from G-Men football as the team doesn’t actually play until Monday night, in a fight for the worse record in the league against the San Francisco 49ers.

However, even though the team doesn’t technically have the worst record in the league at the moment, that honor belonging to the aforementioned Oakland Raiders, they will once more sooner rather than later. So for now, the Giants are our second worst team in the league, with that arrow trending downward if that’s even possible.

Maybe in hindsight selecting Saquon Barkley second overall was a mistake, even if he’s probably going to win Offensive Rookie of the Year and maybe be a rare 2,000 all-purpose rusher the likes of which are seldom seen in the modern NFL.
