1) Nobody can question the 49ers anymore

In the last 3 weeks, the Niners have blown out the Packers, lost by a long field goal in Baltimore, and now they can add beating the Saints in New Orleans to the list. Not a bad three weeks worth of work. Jimmy G. is the real deal and if not for terrible weather they would have beaten the Ravens! This team can win on the road or at home, they are physical and now that Jimmy G. is back to his normal self, there is not a better team in the NFL as of right now.

2) The Ravens are the best team in the AFC

The Ravens have beaten the Patriots, Texans, Rams, Niners, and Bills since their bye week and have won nine games in a row. Not a bad streak for a team that looked like they needed a defense a couple of months ago. That may be the biggest thing with the Ravens: Sure Lamar has played well but the biggest story has to be the improvement of the defense in a short amount of time.

3) The Texans cannot be taken seriously

The Texans just can’t get pressure on the quarterback and the offense is just not the same when Will Fuller is not out there. Can this be saved? In a word, NO! They have DeShaun Watson which gives them a chance in any game but that will not win you a Super Bowl. They will be lucky to hold off the Titans in the AFC South.

4) Andy Dalton will make some team very happy when they have him under center next year

Considering the front office in Cincinnati, the coaching and the injuries, the longtime Bengals quarterback still kept them in the game. Sure he missed some passes, but this is a much better team with him taking snaps. Dalton has played well the last few weeks and mark my words, he will play in another playoff game some day and it won’t be in Cincinnati. Since it won’t be in Cincinnati he might even win a playoff game… You never know, Carson Palmer did it after he left.

5) The Steelers defense could take them to the playoffs

The Steelers defense intercepted Kyler Murray 3 times and quarterback Devlin Hodges was efficient and effective. Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin has to be one of the favorites to be the NFL’s Coach of the Year. Has any coach done more with less?
