0-fer watch 2008: Stayin' Alive!

Today is one of those days we can be thankful to jokers like Dan Orlovsky who help to make these great 0-fer watches possible. Without lousy players like these, the NFL is a more mundane place.

Before jumping into Detroit's game, let's review the Bungles' attempt at 0-16...

In Cincinnati, the Bungles were overmatched from start to finish. The Steelers dominated, 38-10.

Now, let's go out to Houston, where the Lions met the previously winless Texans. It started off badly enough, where the Texans jumped to a 21-3 lead. Then, the Lions kept holding on the ball. Calvin Johnson contributed with a big reception to get the Lions into scoring range. The Lions managed to cut the lead to 7 with a field goal late in the 4th quarter, but in the end, it was Houston who kept the Lions on their path to oblivion!

Next week, Detroit will be at home to play the Redskins while Cincinnati will be at Houston to keep the dream alive! For the Texans, no rest for the weary! Houston plays both winless teams back to back, while in Week 6, they were winless themselves. Whew!

Stay tuned for more updates as we travel the Road... to 0-16!
