1) Los Angeles Rams
The best teams win games when they do not play their best and the Rams did just that in a hard-fought win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Next up is maybe their biggest test of the season at New Orleans.
The Saints went to Minnesota and got a huge win, which was led by an ever-improving defense. The Saints are a serious Super Bowl contender because they are a complete team.
The Patriots do what the Patriots do, which is win and they do it in seemingly a different way every game.
The Chiefs offense continues to roll and now the defense seems to be playing a little better each week.
Nobody in Los Angeles seems to care but the Chargers are becoming a serious Super Bowl contender and when Joey Bosa returns they will only get better.
Cam Newton is starting to look a lot more comfortable in Norv Turner’s offense and it shows. This is a team that is starting to get some serious consideration as a team that could make a run in the playoffs.
The Redskins surprisingly sit atop the NFC East and nobody seems to believe it’s real. Heck, I don’t even believe it’s real, but you can’t deny this team is playing well at the moment.
A huge showdown in Baltimore looms and while the Steelers look to be shifting into high gear, they did just beat the Bengals and Browns so let’s not jump all in on their chances just yet.
The Texans are in control of the AFC South because of a stingy defense. If they want to do more than just win the division the offense must step up.
The Vikings played with no sense of urgency on Sunday and right now the defense has to be one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL.
Quarterback Mitch Trubisky seems to improve a little bit each week and if that continues the Bears could win the North.
For all of the Andy Dalton haters, Dalton marked his 4th game-winning 4th quarter drive of the season on Sunday. For all you Marvin Lewis haters, you’re right!
The Ravens lack of a run game could be their undoing this year, not Quarterback Joe Flacco.
The Seahawks are a surprising 4-3 and that should show everybody just how good Russell Wilson is.
I keep waiting for the World Champion Eagles to show up and I am starting to believe it may never happen.
The Packers literally fumbled away a golden opportunity to beat the Rams on Sunday. With a difficult schedule looming things could get rough in Title Town.
Will Amari Cooper put the Cowboys over the top? Probably not! But they have enough talent to stay in contention.
No team needed a bye week as bad as the Falcons. Will a few more healthy players help turn the Falcons season around?
The Lions had a chance to put themselves in the playoff mix on Sunday and they blew it.
Andrew Luck is a great quarterback and he is dragging the Colts on his back.
After a 3-1 start, the Titans have hit a skid that is threatening to end their playoff dream early.
The Broncos need a more consistent offense and I don’t think that is going to happen this year.
The record says 4-4, but when you watch them play they look like a bad football team.
Blake Bortles is taking down a very talented team.
Winston is a bust so it looks like Fitz Magic time again.
They are still a bad football team. On the bright side, Hue Jackson is gone.
The Jets are not very good, but they didn’t really expect to be.
Larry Fitzgerald is still a bad man.
The Bills play hard, it’s just hard to win games in the NFL with no offense.
Actually, the Giants and the next two teams all deserve to be last.
32) SF 49ers
