NFL teams that still have a chance to go 0-16:

Oakland.

The Raiders play Kansas City at home on Thursday. I’m a little nervous about this one.

And in other news, Philadelphia is the only team that has a chance to finish the NBA season 0-82. (Currently, the 76ers are 0-9.)

For the record: Will Muschamp out as coach of the University of Florida Gators. The Miami Herald is representing this as a resignation; reading between the lines, it sounds like he jumped before he could be pushed.

On this date in history, 40 years ago, the Minnesota Vikings beat the L.A. Rams 28-24 on Monday Night Football.

Of greater historical significance, my younger brother was born during halftime of this game.

Happy birthday, Doug.

Sorry this is late. Sunday was busy (but fun) and yesterday was a travel day.

Anyway, NFL teams that still have a chance to go 0-16:

Oakland.

And in other news, Philadelphia is the only team that has a chance to finish the NBA season 0-82. (Currently, the 76ers are 0-7.)

Musical interlude that has nothing to do with this week’s TMQ. We just needed a musical interlude right about now, and we find this particular version of the song haunting. Yes, we’re in a mood.

For various uninteresting reasons, we actually caught the last few minutes of the London game featuring loser favorites, the Detroit Lions. Rarely has “clown shoes” been a more accurate description.

TMQ’s football gods will be insufferable this week.

The Bears were outclassed, outplayed and outcoached. They had no business being on that field. They offered the most compelling argument favoring a mercy rule. They are the local team most in need of hiring Joe Maddon.

Tell us how you really feel, Steve.

Sounds like the Texans played well. And the Browns somehow managed not to be a factory of sadness this week. As much as I hate Buffalo, the game against the Jets filled me with glee, mostly because watching them struggle makes me even happier than watching Buffalo lose.

I like the Raiders’ chances. Their next three games are against Seattle, Denver, and San Diego, none of whom should lose to Oakland.

Edited to add:

Heh. Heh. Heh.
