Through three weeks, almost every NFL team has managed to find a way to muster up a win. That's every team except for the Arizona Cardinals, the Oakland Raiders and the Houston Texans. Each team has a matchup this weekend with the potential to pull out a win, but let's rank who has the best chance of getting a W on Sunday.

The Texans are easily the most surprising winless NFL team. There were people who had them as potential Super Bowl contenders coming into the year, but they have disappointed on both sides of the ball so far this season.


The Colts aren't much better though, with only one win on the year themselves. Despite this game being on the road, it's a good opportunity for the Texans to get a win against a team that isn't much better than they are. Andrew Luck has shown flashes, but overall doesn't seem to have fully returned to his old form. If Deshaun Watson can stay upright and make plays with his legs, the Texans can come out with a road win.

The Cardinals are not only winless, but they are also have the NFL's worst offense through three games. These two things have caused the Cardinals to make a change at quarterback, setting up rookie Josh Rosen for his first NFL start.


Despite this being Rosen's first start, it's at home and against a depleted Seattle defense. Divisional games are typically closer than others, and if the Cardinals can stay in this game maybe Rosen pulls of a Baker Mayfield-esque comeback win.

The second Jon Gruden era with the Raiders hasn't gotten off to the start everyone was hoping for. Oakland's defense, after trading Khalil Mack, got noticeably worse (shocker) and the offense hasn't been anything to write home about either. 


This week, the Raiders take on the Browns, coming into town fresh off their first win since Christmas Eve of 2016. Mayfield Mania began in Cleveland last week, but there's no guarantee he can go on the road against a hard-nosed Raiders team and get a win in one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. 


Gruden has to win a game eventually, and what better time than now, at home against a team you should beat?
