2. Indianapolis Colts: Even at 5-2, the Colts have wins against the Seahawks, 49ers and Broncos. That’s a fairly impressive resume. When Andrew Luck is on, the offense is difficult to stop, and the defense doesn’t allow a lot of points. The loss of star receiver Reggie Wayne, but I think the points will keep coming. Week 14: Colts @ Bengals could decide the No. 2 seed in the AFC.
3. Green Bay Packers: Aaron Rodgers is…well, the guy’s good. And when Rodgers is playing like Rodgers, the Packers offense can be the best in the NFL. Eddie Lacy is providing a much-needed running game to the picture, and barring a catastrophe, the Packers will be playing come January.
