24. Chicago Bears
The Chicago Bears might have their quarterback of the future in Justin Fields, but man does he need some help. Chicago's offensive line remains a trainwreck and head coach Matt Nagy is somehow still clinging onto his job.
The offense remains a major work in progress while Fields is obviously still a rookie who makes rookie mistakes. But the Bears have talent and have a legitimate gripe with the referees for their loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday night.
The Bears are a fine 3-6 team. If Fields and the offense continue to show improvements, they could make some noise in the second half of the year.
23. New York Giants
For as much negative attention as the Giants bring upon themselves, they aren't a bad football team. Daniel Jones, even with his costly turnovers, is a much better quarterback than most give him credit for and he's working with a talented enough roster.
The defense has some playmakers, they have no shortage of talent on offense, and even the offensive line has shown improvements.
This is a Giants team that has beaten the Saints and Raiders, blown out the Panthers, and hung in there against the Chiefs. They deserve some credit.
Unfortunately, the schedule-makers did them no favors this season and injuries have been killer.
