The New York Jets are 0-8. They are this NFL season’s embarrassment.

But if there’s any consolation for the Jets, it’s that Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence is likely to be available at the top of the NFL Draft in 2021. Also, it’s not like the Jets don’t have company. They are far from the first team to go winless through half of the regular season.

Many predict that the Jets will end 0-16, which would make them only the third team to do so since the league went to 16 games in 1978. But, if you are feeling optimistic, here is a look at teams that started 0-8 since that schedule switch. Rejoice, Jets fans! Nearly all of them recorded at least one win.
