This year in the NFL, there are six 0-3 teams so far. The most surprising team though, is the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Buccaneers suffered two devastating losses in the first two weeks. One of those being against the Jets?!!? The game came down to a game winning drive by the rookie QB Geno Smith. The first play of the drive was a long run by Geno Smith followed by a hit out of bounds call on Tampa Bay. It put them into field goal range which eventually was the game-winning kick.
In Week 2 the Buccaneers were at home against the New Orleans Saints. This one to came down to a game-winning field goal. Drew Brees was able to find Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham on back-to-back plays over the middle to put them in field goal range. With six seconds on the clock, Drew Brees spiked the ball. Garret Hartley kicked the winning field goal, and the Saints just squeaked out a win to eventually beat the Cardinals next week to become one of the only 6 undefeated teams remaining in the league. Clearly, the Buccaneers are the most surprising team that is 0-3.
