That's going go be a tough ask. Trying to think who might be the teams most likely outside of those (who may not necessarily even be bad given how many are on the above list). Hawks, Packers, Lions, Giants, 49ers going off last seasons records?

Looking at the previous poll, I am shocked that the Bucs/Panthers/Ravens received one vote combined while the Cowboys/Dolphins/Seahawks received five. I'm assuming the latter received joke votes or out of spite.

This got me thinking... is it possible for a team to go 0-16? Would Madden eventually just give any team a win no matter how bad they are

Good question. I remember being pretty much certain that we were going to lose to the Patriots last year because they were still winless at 0-9 when we first played them. I also figured we had a better than usual chance to beat the Dolphins the following week because losing to the Pats was our 3rd straight loss to drop us to 5-5. We beat the Dolphins the following week, and then beat the Pats in the rematch the week after.

Anyway, all of that is to say my guess is it's probably possible, but insanely unlikely based on the RNG of the game. My assumption when a team has horrible stats in comparison to their opponent but still wins is the game is making the wins/losses for teams balance themselves out or something.

Like despite having a pretty decent record given the disparity in player ratings in Bills/Dolphins match-ups, I'm pretty certain the Bills have never come close to outperforming the Dolphins statistically in any of those games, and it has instead been very much the opposite even when the Dolphins lose.

It's possible but unlikely. Just think how infrequently 0-16 and 16-0 happen in real life.

Extremely unlikely in B8NFLL thanks to our inaugural season fantasy draft. I have brought this up several times before, but no team has risen above a team rating of 91 nor fallen below 83. The original rosters for teams had multiple in the 60s and upper 90s. Having the talent levels much closer than people probably realize makes the prospect of going winless virtually impossible.
