Rank   Team Record   Change   Comment
1 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 11-1
It wasn’t pretty, but the defense stepped up when it had two. Dallas is 6-0 on the road.
2 New England Patriots New England Patriots 10-2
The Patriots passed their first post-Gronk test with ease, beating the Rams in Foxboro, but they’ll need more from Martellus Bennett (two catches, four yards) over the final month of the season.
3 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 10-2
The Raiders trailed the Bills 24-9 in the third quarter but responded with 31 unanswered points. That works.
4 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 8-3-1
Earl Thomas will be missed, but the offense finally looks explosive.
5 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 9-3
You have to feel good for Eric Berry. Even if you’re a Falcons fan, you have to feel good for Eric Berry.
6 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 8-4
▲ 1
Devontae Booker found the end zone Sunday, but the Broncos need to get their ground game rolling. Booker rushing 18 times for 35 yards against Jacksonville ain’t scaring nobody.
7 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 8-4
▲ 2
If you hold the Saints to 13 in the Superdome, you’re doing something right. That’s four straight wins for Detroit.
8 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 7-5
▲ 4
Le’Veon Bell is averaging 146.4 total yards in nine games this season. Pittsburgh has won three straight.
9 New York Giants New York Giants 8-4
▼ 3
The Giants may have been exposed a bit in Pittsburgh, but they’ll have a chance to prove us wrong soon. They have home games against Dallas and Detroit over the next two weeks.
10 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 7-5
▼ 2
The offense is explosive, but it’s tough to overcome a double-digit fourth-quarter deficit against the Chiefs.
11 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 7-5
▲ 2
Joe Flacco’s four touchdown throws were his most since throwing five against Tampa Bay in October 2014.
12 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 7-5
▼ 2
Miami mustered just six points in Baltimore and saw its six-game winning streak come to an end. The margin of defeat (32) almost equaled the margin of defeat of the Dolphins’ previous four losses combined (37).
13 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 6-5-1
▼ 2
Washington has lost back-to-back road games, albeit against solid competition. The Eagles should provide less resistance in Philadelphia this Sunday.
14 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 6-6
▲ 1
The Titans have alternated wins and losses for six consecutive games. A win against Denver would give Tennessee its second two-game winning streak of the season.
15 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7-5
▲ 1
With four straight wins, the Bucs are suddenly in business in the NFC South.
16 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 6-6
▲ 3
Not the prettiest game from Aaron Rodgers, but a win is a win. Another W over Seattle on Sunday would be enormous.
17 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 6-6
▲ 3
T.Y. Hilton moved the sticks, and Dwayne Allen was money in the red zone. We’ve got a horse race in the AFC South.
18 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 6-6
▼ 4
For as good as the Bills’ defense can be, it’s also looked helpless at times. In fact, Buffalo has allowed 31+ points in four of its six losses.
19 Houston Texans Houston Texans 6-6
▼ 2
The Texans are 5-1 at home and 1-5 on the road.
20 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 5-6-1
▲ 2
Another big day from David Johnson (175 total yards, two touchdowns), another win. That’s a simple yet effective strategy.
21 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 6-6
▼ 3
The Vikings have scored 16 points or fewer in five of their last seven games. That’s why they’re in free fall.
22 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 5-7
▼ 1
Drew Brees’ Superdome touchdown streak ended at 60 games, and New Orleans has lost three of four.
23 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 4-7-1
▲ 3
With a home win over Philadelphia, the Bengals beat a non-Browns team for the first time since September. Riveting.
24 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 5-7
▼ 1
The Chargers were outplayed in the fourth quarter (again) and lost (again).
25 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 5-7
▼ 1
The Eagles have lost seven of nine overall and three straight by double digits.
26 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 4-8
▼ 1
In a game it had to win, Carolina gave up 40. That’s about all you need to know about the fight this team has – or lacks – at this point in the season.
27 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 3-9
▲ 2
Nothing like a visit from the Niners to snap a three-game skid. The losing should resume in Detroit this Sunday
28 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams 4-8
▼ 1
The Rams have lost seven of eight, and the honeymoon is officially over.
29 New York Jets New York Jets 3-9
▼ 1
Has there been a more embarrassing prime-time performance this season?
30 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 2-10
Let’s see: 1-5 at home, 1-5 on the road, losers of seven straight. That about sums it up.
31 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 1-11
If you lose by 20 to the Bears, you may want to consider forfeiting the rest of the season.
32 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 0-12
Cleveland managed to avoid a loss during its bye week. Ah, progress.
