With the NFL season underway, we have a whole new series of topics to discuss, and Nerdy Football’s Community Tailgate is designed to address those topics. What’s the Community Tailgate all about? Well, it’s pretty simple. Every weekday, we’ll highlight one of the top stories going on in the NFL. Then, in the comment section below, we want you to weigh in and let us know what you think.
Of course, while the debate may get spirited, we ask that it all stays respectful. If you need a reminder of our rules, please check out our commenting policy.

Two weeks into the season, we have many teams who have yet to grace the win column. Of course, it’s very early, and those clubs have another 14 regular season games to right the ship. We want to know which of the following 0-2 teams you think are going to wind up making the playoffs:
When the Nerdy Football writing team made predictions for the 2015 season a couple weeks ago, all of us picked the Colts to win the AFC South. However, after losses to the Bills and Jets to start the season, many of us would probably like a re-do. On Monday night the Colts’ offense line was rather porous and reliable veteran Frank Gore coughed up a costly fumble near the goal line. Quarterback Andrew Luck stands as one of the brightest young signal callers in the game, but it won’t mean much if the rest of his offense is slumping.
The Colts aren’t the only contender stumbling to start the season. Chip Kelly‘s Eagles were a sexy pick to win the division but there are issues on either side of the ball and Kiko Alonso‘s injury won’t help matters. The defending NFC Champion Seahawks have also been a disappointment and their defensive struggles have only strengthened the case for Kam Chancellor as he continues his holdout.
Of course, plenty of teams have gone 0-2 to start the year and wound up with a playoff birth. Of the teams that are winless so far, which ones do you think are headed to the postseason? Let us know in the comment section below!
