And then there were three…
With the Vikings win over the Cardinals they fell from 4th to 9th and now appear to be a longshot to earn the No. 1 pick due to the fact that they currently own the most difficult strength of the schedule in the league.
The Colts and Rams, thanks to playing in two of the weakest divisions in football, remain the favorites.
The Dolphins are still in the mix, but will likely need to win the top pick outright due to their SOS. With the Patriots, Jets and Bills all looking like playoff contenders, the Dolphins figure to end the season with one of the more difficult schedules.
Tonight’s Bears-Lions game has no impact on the winless teams, but with a Lions victory the almighty Philadelphia Eagles would fall into a tie with the Jaguars for the 5th pick.
