1 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 11-0
▲ 1
After winning their last two games by a combined 47 points, the Panthers have a legitimate chance to go unbeaten. They close with four division games in the final five weeks, but perfection is within reach. Wanna know who predicted that in the preseason? No one.
2 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 9-2
▲ 1
Carson Palmer rushing eight yards for the game-winning score? You got to feel happy for this guy. Unless you’re a Niners fan
3 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 9-2
▲ 1
Much-needed win over the slumping Rams to stop the bleeding. A first-round bye is still very much a possibility.
4 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 9-2
▲ 1
The Broncos snapped the Patriots’ 13-game winning streak and spoiled New England’s bid for an unbeaten season. Quarterback controversy? Don’t count on it. Brock Osweiler may have won himself the job.
5 New England Patriots New England Patriots 10-1
▼ 4
The AFC road to the Super Bowl will still go through New England, but perfection has been cast aside, and, with injuries mounting, so has the aura of invincibility.
6 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 8-3
▲ 1
Adrian Peterson (187 total yards, two touchdowns) broke into the top 20 of the NFL’s all-time rushing list Sunday. Peterson has five touchdowns in his last four games, and the Vikings have won six of seven overall.
7 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 6-5
▲ 2
After throwing seven touchdowns in his previous seven games, Russell Wilson has thrown eight in his last two. The Seahawks won both. Make no mistake, though: Losing Jimmy Graham hurts. A lot.
8 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 6-5
▲ 3
First Charcandrick West, now Spencer Ware. The Chiefs have won five straight – by an average of 19.8 points.
9 Houston Texans Houston Texans 6-5
▲ 5
The Texans have allowed exactly six points in three of their last four games – all wins. In fact, they’ve allowed just two touchdowns in their last four games. That’s unheard of, especially in today’s NFL.
10 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 6-5
▼ 2
Four turnovers and conservative coaching were too much to overcome, especially in Seattle. Let’s just hope Big Ben is okay, especially with a tough stretch upcoming (against Indy, at Cincy, against Denver).
11 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 7-4
▼ 5
The Packers were held scoreless in the second half against Chicago. Green Bay has now lost four of five, including back-to-back home games. Jordy, where art thou?
12 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 6-5
▲ 1
Yes, Matt Hasselbeck is 4-0 as a starter, and yes, I’m just as shocked as you are.
13 New York Jets New York Jets 6-5
▲ 3
A four-touchdown day from Ryan Fitzpatrick kept the Jets’ season alive. The New York teams will square off against each other Sunday, both desperate for a win.
14 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 5-6
▲ 4
The Redskins, who are 5-1 at home and 0-5 on the road, are atop the NFC East. There are no words.
15 New York Giants New York Giants 5-6
▼ 5
A three-interception day from Eli Manning was too much to overcome. Five of the Giants’ six losses have come by six points or fewer.
16 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 5-6
▲ 5
The Bears have suddenly won three of four – all on the road – during which they’ve allowed just 15.5 points per game.
17 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 5-6
▼ 5
Sammy Watkins was brilliant in the first half (158 yards, two touchdowns) but shut out in the second. The Chiefs’ defense adjusted. The Bills’ offense did not.
18 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 6-5
▼ 3
The Falcons have lost four straight and five of six, with three road games upcoming. The playoffs ain’t happening, and if they do, it won’t matter.
19 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 5-6
▲ 4
Mature performance from Derek Carr, who drove 90 yards for the game-wining score at Tennessee. A tougher test awaits this Sunday against Kansas City, but Raiders fans have to be pleased.
20 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 5-6
▼ 3
Jameis Winston has thrown one touchdown or fewer in seven of 11 games this season.
21 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 4-7
▼ 2
The Jags scored a touchdown on just one of four trips to the red zone against San Diego. That’s not getting it done.
22 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 4-7
▲ 5
The Lions scored 45 points against Philadelphia, this after scoring 46 points in their previous three games combined.
23 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 4-7
▼ 3
The Dolphins’ last five games: a one-point win against the woeful Eagles and four double-digit losses. Ouch.
24 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 4-7
▼ 2
The Eagles lost 45-17 at home to Tampa Bay and 45-17 at Detroit – in the span of just five days. Things won’t get any easier this Sunday, with a trip to Foxboro upcoming.
25 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 4-7
▼ 1
The Saints failed to score a touchdown for the first time in 155 games, which was the second-longest streak in NFL history. New Orleans has lost three straight.
26 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 4-7
▲ 3
All four wins have been decided on field goal attempts. Amazing.
27 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 3-8
▲ 3
After six straight losses, a win. Good times.
28 St. Louis Rams St. Louis Rams 4-7
▼ 2
Another quiet game for Todd Gurley (nine carries, 19 yards), who simply has no room to run. The Rams have lost four straight
29 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 3-8
▼ 4
You don’t have to feel bad for Jerry Jones, but you have to feel a little bad for Tony Romo. It just wasn’t meant to be this year.
30 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 3-8
▼ 2
Credit the Niners for keeping it close, but a two-game losing streak could become six in a hurry. At Bears, at Browns, against Bengals and at Lions. I’m not sure I see a win.
31 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 2-9
Another tough loss for Tennessee, which has lost nine of 10 and is 0-6 at home.
32 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 2-9
Of course the Browns lost like that. Of course they did.
