Whether you have a zero to start your won-loss record or to end it perfect is perfect. Until last Sunday (October 20, 2013) the Denver Broncos had a zero (6-0) on their won-loss record, but the Indianapolis Colts took care of that by beating the Broncos (in week seven) 39-33 in a thriller. The New York Giants had a zero appearing in a bad place (0-6) entering Monday night's game against the Minnesota Vikings and they also took care of that by beating Minnesota, 23-7. Eli Manning who owns two Super Bowl championship rings and his brother Peyton Manning quarterback of the Broncos ended their streak of perfection on the same weekend. Eli now needs to put together a long streak of positive achievement to even make the postseason; brother Peyton, on the contrary, is comfy but he still wants that first round bye which comes with the league's best won-loss record.
Three perfect zeroes
The Kansas City Chiefs are the first of the trio of teams I alluded to in this story's title. The Chiefs are perfect (7-0) and are the only unbeaten team left in the National Football League now. The Chiefs beat the Houston Texans in week seven, 17-16. Two perfect zeroes in the NFL are from Florida and they are about three hours apart from each other by car. The Jacksonville Jaguars are a zero (0-7) and head to the United Kingdom for the honor of being crushed by the San Francisco 49ers in front of a foreign audience. Jacksonville lost to the San Diego Chargers in week seven, 24-6; they're considered the home team in this game at Wembley Stadium in London, England. The Jags are as much as a seventeen-point underdog. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are a perfect zero (0-6) and will host the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night. The Bucs lost to the Atlanta Falcons in week seven, 31-23. Tampa Bay has rookie quarterback Mike Glennon in charge of the Bucs offense that has been struggling to score points.
