The season is already over for some NFL teams — here are the teams that won't make the playoffs

The NFL season is only six weeks old, but for some teams, the season is already over and it is time to start looking towards the 2019 NFL Draft.

Here are the eight teams that won't make the playoffs, ranked by the chances to receive the first pick in the 2019 draft. We will update this list each week as more teams are sent packing.
