The Texans are the team to beat as far as I’m concerned as long as everyone’s healthy. Their offense is impossible to contain, and J.J. Watt is a star in the making, as Bengals fans found out the hard way.

On the opposite end, the Dolphins are terrible with a capital T. They traded away their best offensive player in Brandon Marshall, and one of their best defensive players in Vontae Davis before the season, signaling to everyone that they are in full rebuilding mode. If they can’t beat the Raiders this week, it may be a while before(if ever) we see them get a win this season.

Who do you think should be #1? And do you like where we put the Bengals? Let us know your thoughts in the comments sections. We love hearing back from you guys.
