1. New York Giants
The Giants are playing like the best team in the NFL. The clutch catch by Victor Cruz is an indicator of just how good this team truly is down the stretch.
2. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons are still the lone undefeated, and one of the most complete teams in the NFL.
3. Houston Texans
Houston’s blowout win against Baltimore was a great way for them to bounce back after losing to Green Bay
4. Chicago Bears
The Bears’ Monday night victory showed that their defense is still one of the most dominant in the NFL right now.
5. Green Bay Packers
Green Bay should still only have two losses, and they are playing great football right now. Things are clicking again.
6. San Francisco 49ers
San Francisco got a tough win against Seattle, but what was up with no targets for Vernon Davis?
7. New England Patriots
The Patriots eeked out a win against the Jets. What is up with this team? They look dominant one week and average the next.
8. Denver Broncos
Denver has a big test against the Saints this week, but they played great in that second half against San Diego.
9. Baltimore Ravens
Baltimore’s losses on the defensive side of the ball are going to hurt badly.
10. Minnesota Vikings
Minnesota’s playing as well as most any team in the league right now. They are dangerous.
11. Seattle Seahawks
Seattle’s inconsistencies offensively could be killer if they are going to compete in the rough, tough NFC West.
12. Pittsburgh Steelers
Pittsburgh doesn’t win pretty, but they got a big road win in Cincinnati, where Big Ben is still dominant.
13. Philadelphia Eagles
Philadelphia has a lot of issues, but a win this week could cure a lot of things.
14. Washington Redskins
This Redskins team is tough. RG3 has to be an MVP candidate. He put his team in place to beat the Giants and the defense messed it up.
15. Dallas Cowboys
Dallas was able to get a win against Carolina, but it was extremely close. They need DeMarco Murray back.
16. Arizona Cardinals
Arizona is falling fast. Their defense is still pretty tough, but the Cardinals’ offense is really rough.
17. New York Jets
The Jets are competitive, I have to give them that. That alone is surprising to me.
18. San Diego Chargers
San Diego got a much needed bye week this week, and they have to come back against Cleveland to get a big win this weekend.
19. Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati has lost two division games in prime time. This is not the same team as last year, and Andy Dalton is struggling a bit.
20. Miami Dolphins
Miami is a surprise team. They have a chance this weekend against the Jets to move to 4-3.
21. New Orleans Saints
The Saints are hot on the rise. We get to see Drew Brees go into Denver this weekend and take on Peyton Manning.
22. Tennessee Titans
Tennessee now has three wins after their comeback against Buffalo. This team can be really exciting at the end of games, can’t they?
23. St. Louis Rams
St. Louis has hit a bit of a rut, but this is still a solid team. I’d like to see them come back.
24. Detroit Lions
Detroit is reeling. They are 2-4 in one of the best divisions in football.
25. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts have won some tough games, and now they need to show they can string together a couple in a row.
26. Buffalo Bills
Buffalo lost a heartbreaker this weekend to the Titans, but Ryan Fitzpatrick played really well.
27. Oakland Raiders
Oakland finally won a close game. Unfortunately it was to one of the worst teams in the NFL right now. Still unsure about this team.
28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay almost completed the comeback against New Orleans, but fell just short. They are capable of scoring a lot of points.
29. Carolina Panthers
What happened to this team? This is a really tough start for them. They also just fired their GM, so hopefully something changes.
30. Cleveland Browns
Cleveland lost a tough game to Indy, but I think there are brighter days ahead.
31. Jacksonville Jaguars
With Maurice Jones-Drew out, what does this team have?
32. Kansas City Chiefs
Brady Quinn just replaced Matt Cassel. Things are not great right now for the Chiefs.
