Maybe it's just because the season's early, but it feels like the entire NFL has somehow gotten worse.
The two best teams are the Patriots minus just about their entire starting secondary from last season, and the Jordy Nelson-less Packers. Two of the four conference championship game participants from last year are 0-2. The popular dark horse picks from each conference (Ravens, Giants, Eagles) are winless as well. The Saints have forgotten how to play offense. The freaking Brandon Wheeden led Cowboys genuinely look like the best NFC East team. Even the surprise teams haven't looked that good, to be honest.
