Which of the remaining winless teams has the best chance to finish 0-16?

Tough call, but after giving away a game to a Jets team that was supposed to be TANKING this season, I'd say the Browns have the best chance not to win a game the rest of the year.  Their schedule:

Its the giants with their injuries and that schedule. I like the browns over the titans in london. Niners will beat the rams or cardinals.

I had by mistake had the Tennessee game in London.  It's obviously the Vikings game the following week that is their lone NFL Network appearance.

Unfortunately

Ehh....it's not as if there are always competitive games on Thanksgiving. Most of the time, they're lopsided blowouts

Its a division game, so it could still be somewhat close

Think they can only flex certain 1/4pm Sunday games into the prime time Sunday night slot.  I think it’s normally late in the season, though I’m not sure if those rules have changed.  

Some absolutely terrible Thanksgiving games this year.  

Vikes @ Lions is decent at best  

Chargers @ Cowboys yuck

and Giants @ Redskins puke

Don't think any team will actually go 0 and 16 but if it's going to be anyone it's going to be those mighty Browns. 

I think the Giants will probably end up winning 4-5 and SF will win a couple.

In fact if Hoyer wasn't so useless the Niners could be 2-3 if not 3-2! He's been that bad but they have been competitive in pretty much every game.

Vikings at Lions could have Wild Card implications.
The Chargers were I think scheduled against the Cowboys because every team (except the Jags & Browns) has to play one Thursday game.
No one thought Giants-Redskins would be THIS bad (and you've got Redskins-Cowboys the following Thursday).

Why don't they have to play a Thursday game?

The Giants were bad and now they're full of injuries. I don't think they have a winnable game left at home and they're going to have a hard time on the road. I pick Giants.

The Browns missed an opportunity last week, but the Jets are playing competitive this year. I think the Browns still have several winnable games left.

49ers are a last-second FG or TD from winning a couple of their games. I think they get a win sooner or later.

And if that's the case... That football team should get ready for a few down and tough years! And that's a great satisfying thought.

There was a scheduling quirk because unlike past seasons, there is no Thursday night game in Week 16 due to a calendar quirk of Christmas falling on a Monday.  That week, NFL Network has games on Saturday and Monday (4:30 PM ET) and NBC had to move their normal Sunday night game to Saturday night (8:30 PM ET).  That was why.
