Rank   Team Record   Change   Comment
1 New England Patriots New England Patriots 4-0
Brady vs. Weeden? That one was over before it started.
2 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 5-0
Aaron Rodgers actually threw a pick at Lambeau – in fact, he threw two – and the Pack still won by two scores. This team is making it look easy.
3 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 5-0
Another underwhelming game from Peyton Manning, another overwhelming game from the defense. There’s cause for unease here, but there’s also cause for optimism.
4 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 5-0
Easily the most impressive win of the Andy Dalton era. The Bengals are 5-0 for the first time since 1988, and if Mike Nugent’s banked-in field goal is any indication, the ball may finally be bouncing their way.
5 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 5-0
It hasn’t been pretty at times, but check out that schedule: 9-0 is a distinct possibility.
6 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 4-1
Another 40-point game for the highest-scoring team in the league.
7 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 4-0
The Panthers are off to a good start, but we’ll see in the next month if they’re legit. Opponents include Seattle, Philadelphia, Indianapolis and Green Bay.
8 New York Jets New York Jets 3-1
▲ 1
Sheldon Richardson is about to be unleashed.
9 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 3-2
▲ 1
A depleted offense did just enough to beat Tennessee. The Bills have allowed 14 points or fewer in all three of their wins.
10 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 3-2
▲ 1
Gutty call, gutty win. That was a season-changer for Pittsburgh, especially with Arizona upcoming.
11 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 2-3
▼ 3
The Seahawks are 0-3 on the road following a historic collapse in Cincinnati. Something just feels off here.
12 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 3-2
▲ 1
The Colts have won three straight, albeit against weak competition, but at least they had an Andre Johnson sighting in Houston. Andrew Luck needs to play this Sunday.
13 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 2-2
▲ 1
Chiefs, Lions, Bears, Rams. We’ll see what happens, but the Vikings have four very winnable games upcoming.
14 New York Giants New York Giants 3-2
▲ 1
Eli Manning (932 yards, eight touchdowns, two interceptions) has carried New York to victory in three straight games. The Giants are the safe pick in an NFC East full of uncertainty.
15 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 2-3
▼ 3
There’s just no offense. Dallas has lost three straight since Tony Romo’s injury.
16 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 2-3
A bounce here, a bounce there, and the Raiders could very easily be 4-1 with their only loss coming against the Bengals. The playoffs won’t happen this year, but the foundation is being set.
17 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 2-3
▲ 4
The Eagles overcame another sluggish start to hang 39 points on the Saints.
18 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 2-3
▼ 1
Heartbreaking loss for San Diego, especially with a trip to Lambeau upcoming; 2-4 is almost a certainty.
19 St. Louis Rams St. Louis Rams 2-3
▼ 1
Four Nick Foles interceptions, including a pick-six, would be too much to overcome against anyone, especially the Packers. St. Louis has been up and down – mostly down – since its season-opening stunner against Seattle.
20 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 2-3
▲ 4
Finally, a win for Josh McCown. In other news, Gary Barnidge is a beast.
21 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 2-3
▲ 7
Jay Cutler has saved the Bears twice in as many weeks. That deserves a (slight) tip of the cap.
22 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 1-4
▼ 3
Stunning loss to the Browns. Baltimore is off to its worst start in franchise history.
23 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 1-3
Well, let’s see if those Oklahoma drills paid off...
24 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 2-3
▲ 3
The Redskins have been a punching bag – and deservedly so – but you have to admit: they’ve looked a lot better than many could have predicted, even in defeat.
25 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 1-4
▼ 5
Jamaal Charles’ knee injury is absolutely devastating for a team that has lost four straight. Season over.
26 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 1-4
▼ 4
That season-opening win feels like a long time ago.
27 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 1-4
▼ 2
The Saints rank 21st in football in scoring offense (20.6 points per game). It doesn’t seem real, but it is.
28 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 1-3
▼ 2
The Titans have blown two straight double-digit leads at home and have lost back-to-back games by a combined three points. That’s the difference between 1-3 and 3-1.
29 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-3
▲ 2
Forty rushes and 19 passes were just what the doctor ordered. Tampa Bay’s win over Jacksonville ended an 11-game home losing streak.
30 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 1-4
▼ 1
Three straight losses, all on the road. Sunday’s home game against Houston will be the Jags’ best chance at a win for quite some time.
31 Houston Texans Houston Texans 1-4
▼ 1
The run-pass balance just wasn’t there. If you can’t beat the Luck-less Colts at home, you’ve got problems.
32 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 0-5
Matthew Stafford (six touchdowns, eight interceptions) just isn’t getting it done. Like it or not, the Lions have a decision to make.
