Every week on Gunther and I do the NFL Top Five Bottom Five, we break down the five best and five worst teams in the NFL. It’s not purely based on record, but injuries, momentum, and general feeling around the teams.
The playoffs are here, and all four teams with a bye week made it in the top five, however not every team making up the top five picks in the NFL draft filled out the bottom five.
With that said, here’s the final regular season edition of the Top Five Bottom five.
