As Week 9 comes to a close in the NFL, there were some surprisingly bad performances from top teams.
The parity in the league this season is astounding as no team looks overly better than the rest.
That was once again the case in Week 9.
While many teams suffered tough defeats on Sunday, here are three teams who disappointed.
1. Buffalo Bills
It is rare to find the Buffalo Bills on a list of the most disappointing teams, but here we are.
In a game where Buffalo entered as a double-digit favorite, the Bills lost 20-17 to the New York Jets.
This was an abysmal loss for a team that many thought was the best in football.
Quarterback Josh Allen played one of his worst games of the season.
Stunning loss for #Bills
Josh Allen with his worst game since Jacksonville last year
Defense got pushed around all day
Coaching staff did not have team ready
This one is massive. Division loss. Conference loss #BillsMafia

Allen threw two interceptions and zero touchdown passes but was effective on the ground.
His two rushing TDs were the only thing keeping the Bills in the game.
Buffalo continues to struggle running the football, with Allen’s scrambles being their most effective runs.
This was a bad loss for the Bills and one that might haunt them later in the season.
2. Green Bay Packers
Another week, another loss for the Green Bay Packers.
This time it was on the road to the now two-win Detroit Lions.
Green Bay is a mess right now, and there does not seem to be an easy fix.
The Aaron Rodgers-led offense looks terrible.
They managed to score only nine points against the worst-scoring defense in all of football.
Now with a record of 3-6 on the year, Green Bay would be lucky to make the playoffs.
Things do not get easier for them next week as they host the Dallas Cowboys in Week 10.
3. Los Angeles Rams
What is there even left to be said about the Los Angeles Rams?
They have fallen to 3-5 on the year with a 16-13 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
This time choking away a four-point lead with only 44 seconds left in the game.
Both sides of the ball are not making enough plays in key moments.
Rams have been outscored 71-10 in the 4Q this season.
Not a typo.

The Rams offense only scored one touchdown in the game and punted the ball nine times.
Wide receiver Cooper Kupp is the only player on their offense consistently used.
Quarterback Matthew Stafford is also having one of the worst years of his career (seven TDs to eight interceptions).
Playing in a tough division with the Seahawks and 49ers, the Rams seem like a good bet to miss the playoffs.
