There are two 0-7 teams in the NFL, Miami and St. Louis. The Dolphins are playing with a first-year head coach; the Rams are not. As a result, it's not surprising to see that it is Scott Linehan who is taking more heat for his team's performance. Linehan has plenty of excuses- his offensive line is in shambles, his star running back has missed most of the season, his second receiver hasn't played much and his quarterback is gutting it out with a smashed-up ribcage. No NFL team is going to function in that condition. Even so, it looks increasingly possible that Linehan will be fired before the season is finished.

Bill Connelly takes a look at the early-season S&P+ outliers and whether his eyeballs agree or disagree with the stats. Spoiler: Alabama is underrated. Alabama! Underrated!
