When Joe Flacco is calling the offensive coordinator conservative… WOW.

25

The Chargers lost in spirit against Chicago, but found a win against a total mess.

20

It’s Miami. Still, the Steelers are now back in the race to a degree.

Last rank: 18th

The Raiders almost pulled off a season-altering win. Almost.

18

Tennessee Titans 4-4

Last week: W, 27-23 vs. TB
Last rank: 20th

Ryan Tannehill should have been the Week 1 starter.

17

Time to bring Cam Newton back.

16

Jacksonville Jaguars 4-4

Gardner Minshew rebounded from two poor performances to dominate the woeful Jets.

Detroit saved its season with a win. Now the Lions have to get rolling.

The Bills aren’t going anywhere until the offense steps up.

13

Philadelphia is about to get healthier, and that’s a problem for the Cowboys.

12

Beating the Falcons and Bengals doesn’t tell us much, but it’s a start.

11

Houston Texans 5-3

Last week: W, 27-24 vs. OAK
Last rank: 13th

Winning is good. Losing J.J. Watt is very, very bad.

10

Baltimore Ravens 5-2

Last week: BYE
Last rank: 11th

Huge test on Sunday night with the Patriots coming to town.

9

Dallas Cowboys 4-3

Last week: BYE
Last rank: 10th

The Cowboys have to find consistently coming out of their bye week.

8

Kansas City Chiefs 5-3

Last week: L, 31-24 vs. GB
Last rank: 7th

The Chiefs basically played half their team and almost beat Green Bay. Oddly impressive in defeat.

7

Indianapolis Colts 5-2

Last week: W, 15-13 vs. DEN
Last rank: 6th

Can’t let Denver hang around like that. Still, the Colts made the plays and escaped.

6

Seattle Seahawks 6-2

Last rank: 9th

Seattle got right against the Falcons.

5

Minnesota Vikings 6-2

Last week: W, 19-9 vs. WSH

Minnesota has ridiculous playmakers. Kirk Cousins is also looking like he’s turned the corner.

4

San Francisco 49ers 7-0

Last week: W, 51-13 vs. CAR
Last rank: 4th

The 49ers are for real. What a killing of Carolina.

3

New Orleans Saints 7-1

Last week: W, 30-9 at AZ
Last rank: 3rd

Arguably the best team in football. So impressive all across the board.

2

Green Bay Packers 7-1

Last week: W, 31-24 at KC
Last rank: 2nd

The Packers found a way to beat Matt Moore. Not a huge endorsement. Then again, Aaron Rodgers. My God.

New England Patriots 8-0

Last week: W, 27-13 vs. CLE
Last rank: 1st

Undefeated, but playing absolutely nobody.
