In Week Eight, the 0-6 Rams shocked the NFC South-leading Saints. In Week Nine, the 0-7 Dolphins toppled the AFC West-leading Chiefs.

In Week 10, the last of the winless teams could have their best chance to get their first win. To make it happen, the 0-9 Colts don’t have to beat a team with a winning record. Instead, Indy will host the 2-6 Jaguars.

Of course, the Jaguars have shown that they’ve still got some bite, beating the Titans and the Ravens this season. Plus, the Jags are coming off their bye week.

Of course, the prospect of the Colts winning a game and moving to 1-9 presumes that they actually want to win. The Colts’ players surely do; they simply don’t have the horses to compete. Ownership and the front office realize that, if the team sinks deeply enough to get Andrew Luck, one horrible season would be the chipped piece of rancid ham between two huge 10-plus-season runs of success.
