Rank   Team Record   Change   Comment
1 New England Patriots New England Patriots 6-1
▲ 1
At this point, there’s New England, and there’s everybody else. Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and LeGarrette Blount have this offense clicking on all cylinders.
2 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 5-1
▼ 1
Sam Bradford has exceeded expectations, but this is not a team that can get behind by two scores.
3 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 5-1
▲ 1
The Cowboys will go for their sixth straight win Sunday night in a battle of the best rookie quarterbacks in football. Should be a good one.
4 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 5-2
▲ 1
The Broncos weren’t going to let Osweiler beat them, especially in Denver.
5 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 4-1-1
▼ 2
The Seahawks were lucky to escape with a tie. If Russell Wilson can’t run – he has three rushing yards in his last four games combined – this offense is much easier to defend.
6 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 4-2
Aaron Rodgers throwing 56 times a game hardly seems like a recipe for long-term success, but for now, that is what Green Bay must do. Put the ball in your best player’s hands and let him win the game.
7 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 5-2
▲ 4
The Raiders are off to their best start since 2001.
8 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 4-3
▼ 1
The Steelers didn’t stop the run, and they didn’t stop Tom Brady. That one was never in doubt.
9 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 4-2
▲ 3
The Chiefs slowed the Saints’ potent passing attack and have won three of four overall.
10 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 3-3-1
▲ 3
A tie is better than a loss, but the Cardinals let that one slip away. On the flip side, they’ve allowed just nine points in their last two games combined.
11 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 4-2
▲ 4
Nice bounce-back win for the Eagles, who have won all four of their games by double digits.
12 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 4-3
▼ 2
A defense that was riding high allowed Miami to rush 41 times for 256 yards (6.2 yards per carry) and two scores. Not a great tune-up for Tom Brady and the Pats, who will be thirsty for revenge this Sunday.
13 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 4-3
▼ 5
Atlanta pulled a San Diego against San Diego. Oh, the irony.
14 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 4-3
▼ 5
Tough way for a four-game winning streak to end. Let’s see how Washington responds in Wembley.
15 New York Giants New York Giants 4-3
▲ 3
Certainly not a pretty win, but the Giants will take it. New York will have two weeks to rest up before a pivotal divisional game against Philadelphia.
16 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 4-3
▲ 6
Another interception-free day for Matthew Stafford, another Lions win. Crazy how that works, huh?
17 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 3-4
▲ 2
Jeremy Hill’s 168 rushing yards – on just nine carries – were a career high, while A.J. Green’s Hail Mary touchdown was just filthy.
18 Houston Texans Houston Texans 4-3
▼ 4
Perhaps Brock should have stayed in Denver. Especially since the run defense stayed in Houston.
19 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3
▲ 5
Jacquizz Rodgers went five seasons without a 100-yard rushing day. Now he’s done it two games in a row. Impressive.
20 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 3-4
▲ 6
The 34 points were Indy’s most since Week 1. Big win for the Colts to stay alive in the AFC South.
21 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 3-4
▼ 5
The Titans have already won more games this year than they did all of last year, but they have lost 15 of 16 to the Colts. Tennessee must solve the Indy mystery.
22 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 3-4
▲ 3
Hats off to Jay Ajayi, who became just the fourth player in NFL history to rush for 200+ yards in back-to-back games.
23 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 3-4
▲ 4
With three more scores Sunday in Atlanta, Melvin Gordon now has 10 touchdowns (eight rush, two receiving) on the season.
24 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 3-4
▼ 7
Twelve rushes for six yards? Frankly, it’s amazing the game was as close as it was.
25 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 2-4
▼ 5
Allowing 27 points is a success for this defense, but two turnovers and 10 penalties doomed the Saints in Kansas City. They’ll need to be much sharper this Sunday at home against Seattle.
26 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams 3-4
▼ 5
It’s tough to win when you don’t score after the first quarter.
27 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 2-4
▼ 4
The offense just isn’t there. That’s 17 points or fewer in four of the last five.
28 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 1-5
If the Panthers beat Arizona this weekend, maybe they’ll have some life in the second half of the season. If they don’t, they won’t.
29 New York Jets New York Jets 2-5
Dear Ryan Fitzpatrick: Get over yourself. You are not good at football.
30 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 1-6
The Bears have been held to 17 points or fewer in six of seven games this season. What do you think the Vikings are going to do to them next Monday night?
31 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 1-6
Six straight losses. Can we all agree it’s time for Chip Kelly to return to college?
32 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 0-7
Well, at least the Browns had a lead at one point…
