1. FALCONS – looking like a team that is ready to win now … and in the playoffs.

2. GIANTS – could be the most complete team in the league right now.

3. TEXANS – the best team in the AFC by a decent margin. Ready for stretch run.

4. 49ERS – for two straight weeks they demonstrated NFC West supremacy.

5. BEARS – Jay Cutler isn’t helping them score. But their defense is. And they win.

6. PACKERS – they are on a run and looking more like the 15-1 team from last year.

7. PATRIOTS – apparently the New England Patriots offense is still better than the old.

8. RAVENS – let’s see what team comes out of the bye. Time for Flacco to carry them.

9. STEELERS – may be starting to make their run & the defense is returning to form.

10. BRONCOS – Peyton’s revenge for the SB loss was enough to give them first place.

11. VIKINGS – for some reason that loss on Thursday night at home was predictable.

12. SEAHAWKS – thought they would steal another one on the east coast. Was not so.

13. DOLPHINS – we all slept on Joe Philbin and Ryan Tannehill. We are now awake.

14. COLTS – they are only two games out of first in the AFC South. Think about that.

15. CARDINALS – their run at the top of the NFC West is probably over for good.

16. LIONS – the worst part for them is that there are 3 teams above them.

17. COWBOYS – watching them lose is painful and fun at the same time. It’s confusing.

18. EAGLES – total chaos has set in. Putting Vick on the bench will signal the end.

19. RAMS – a much better team at home. Too bad the NFL called home “London” this week.

20. REDSKINS – note to Kyle Shanahan-sending RG3 out as a WR is dangerous!

21. BUCCANEERS – the offense has been on fire the last 2 weeks. How long will it last?

22. CHARGERS – the ugliness has officially started. Start the clock on Norv Turner.

23. BILLS – all those improvement in the off-season better start showing up.

24. RAIDERS – back to back wins. And now only a game out of first place in AFC West.

25. JETS – fans will look at the last 2 divisional games in the last 2 weeks and wonder.

26. BENGALS – the 2 teams ahead of them have problems & that will keep them in it.

27. TITANS – they used to be a tough team to beat at home. Not anymore.

28. SAINTS – Joe Vitt & Jonathan Vilma coming back didn’t help. Didn’t think it would.

29. BROWNS – not only out of the cellar, but out of the “30s” in the HZPR! Celebrate!

30. JAGUARS – showed a lot of heart hanging with the Pack with no MJD. Still no “W.”

31. PANTHERS – at least the lost respectable and Cam Newton didn’t pout publicly.

32. CHIEFS – Cassel. Quinn. Cassel. Does it matter? Not when you score the second fewest points in the league.
