There wasn't an undefeated or winless team in the NFL in the 2021 season, but there was a way to guarantee that your team would lose this season.

The Manning Cast Curse continued in Week 18, as Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers lost to the Detroit Lions. That sealed an 0-7 record for active players that joined the Manning Cast on ESPN's Monday Night Football the week prior.

Rodgers and the Packers didn't need to win in Week 18, as they had already wrapped up the No. 1 seed in the NFC, but losing to the Lions was certainly unexpected, as WynnBET had Green Bay as the favorite coming into this game.

The Lions finished the 2021 season 11-6 against the spread despite going just 3-14 overall. More importantly, they kept the Manning Curse going in the final week.

Truly the people's team.
