1

Broncos

6-1

They may have lost, but I still don’t see a team I believe is better (including Indy).

1

2

Saints

5-1

Bye week sees the Saints staying put.

2

3

Seahawks

6-1

A good road win in Arizona, but nothing too impressive.

3

4

Chiefs

7-0

I like this team, just not enough to move them to the top (even with their 7-0 record).

4

5

Packers

4-2

With losses by the Bears and Lions, the Packers are back atop the division – to stay.

5

6

49ers

5-2

After a rocky start to the season, the 49ers seem to be back on track.

7

7

Bengals

5-2

An impressive road win in Detroit. When Dalton protects the ball, the Bengals are tough.

9

8

Colts

5-2

Impressive wins over Den, Sea and SF, but losses to SD and Mia keep the Colts from climbing higher.

10

9

Lions

4-3

A loss to the Bengals is not a bad loss and this Lions team has a potent offense.

15

10

Patriots

4-3

Iffy call aside, the Patriots played poorly and lost an 11 point lead to Geno Smith.

6

11

Cowboys

4-3

The teams they have beat (NYG, Wash, Phi, StL) are a combined 9-18.

12

12

Panthers

3-3

At 3-3, I may have to start eating crow on Newton.

18

13

Ravens

3-4

They aren’t the team they were last year. But they aren’t as bad as they have played.

11

14

Chargers

4-3

If Phillip Rivers is back, this is a decent team…not a playoff team.

19

15

Bears

4-3

The healthy Bears are better than 15 – but they aren’t healthy. Peppered with big injuries, the Bears are trying to tread water.

8

16

Cardinals

3-4

A decent team in a tough division. They will get better.

14

17

Titans

3-4

A big surprise in 2013. A good defense and respectable passing game.

17

18

Eagles

3-4

If Vick is healthy, they are higher than 18. I don’t think Vick can stay healthy.

13

19

Dolphins

3-3

After starting 3-0, the Dolphins are being welcomed back to reality.

16

20

Bills

3-4

Thad Lewis looks pretty competent.

21

21

Redskins

2-4

Moving up simply based on big injuries on the teams below them.

25

22

Falcons

2-4

2-4, Jones is out for the year, White and Jackson are still out = trouble for the Falcons.

20

23

Steelers

2-4

A big win against the Ravens shows the Steelers are not dead.

24

24

Jets

4-3

Take away the questionable Patriots game, and the record of the other 3 teams they have beaten is 5-14.

23

25

Raiders

2-4

Pryor and the defense have been much better than I expected and they are still just 2-4.

27

26

Browns

3-4

Jason Campbell may be better than Weeden, but this team is still not a good football team.

22

27

Texans

2-5

They have had a lot of injuries, but not sure I recall a worse preseason Super Bowl contender.

26

28

Rams

3-4

Kellen Clemens = QB. Zac Stacy = RB. Rams = Bad

28

29

Giants

1-6

The winning team of a disgraceful game.

29

30

Vikings

1-5

Freeman is not as bad as he was on Monday, but this team still is not good.

30

31

Buccaneers

0-6

The first NFL seat will open in Tampa Bay and will open soon.

31

32

Jaguars

0-7

The 2008 Lions are starting to get nervous.
