32 – Cleveland – They had their chance against Green Bay, but managed to blow it. 0-16 is a real possibility.
31 – New York Giants – The Giants will be in full rebuild mode this offseason. Lots of questions to answer.
30 – Indianapolis – The Colts may have an entire new look next year, which is exactly what Andrew Luck needs.
29 – Tampa Bay – It doesn’t get more disappointing than what Tampa has produced this season. They should have been real good.
28 – Houston – The Texans fell apart after losing DeShaun Watson, but at least they have the main piece of the puzzle in place.
27 – Cincinnati – The Bengals are beat up and look like they quit against the Bears, which is why they get the big fall this week. Maybe they finally get the chance to rid themselves of Marvin Lewis.
26 – Denver – The Broncos were on a free-fall and were able to finally beat a team after knocking out Josh McCown. They will have a lot to do this offseason.
25 – Chicago – After losing to the 49ers last week, the Bears bounced back in a big way and embarrassed the Bengals at home.
24 – San Francisco – The 49ers have won 3 of their last 4, are playing their hearts out with the league’s most beat-up roster (25 players on IR) and they have found their new quarterback.
23 – New York Jets – The Jets were actually playing pretty well and now it will look ugly without a capable quarterback like Josh McCown.
22 – Washington – The Redskins’ season was already over, but they still have to be as disappointed as Josh Norman is right now.
21 – Oakland – The Raiders are much like Tampa. A huge disappointment. Yet they’re somehow still alive for a Wild Card.
20 – Arizona – The Cardinals won an ugly game against the Titans.
19 – Green Bay – This is 2 weeks in a row Green Bay played terrible against a horrible team and somehow got the game to OT and won. This team just isn’t good.
18 – Kansas City – The Chiefs snapped their losing streak, but they still look bad.
17 – Tennesee – Right now, the Titans look more like a 5-8 team and now Mariota has injury concerns.
16 – Miami – The Dolphins shocked the world and beat New England with Jay Cutler. What a year this is!
15 – Buffalo – The Bills won a difficult game in the snow, but they have real questions at quarterback as they head into the stretch run for playoff contention.
14 – Detroit – Matthew Stafford overcame injury to lead the Lions past the Bucs, but you have to wonder how much the injury will affect him.
13 – Dallas – The Cowboys need a lot to happen but if they can keep this up and get Elliot back, you never know what they’re capable of.
12 – Baltimore – The Ravens showed they still have life at offense and could be a problem in the playoffs.
11 – LA Chargers – The Chargers look poised to win the AFC West and do damage in the postseason. They have a real pass rush and Philip Rivers can still play.
10 – Seattle – The Seahawks aren’t going away and Russell Wilson continues to make his case for MVP.
9 – New Orleans – The Saints took a step backwards this week, but they could bounce right back.
8 – Atlanta – If Atlanta gets to 10 wins, they could make the postseason regardless of what other teams do.
7 – Jacksonville – The Jaguars almost blew that lead to Seattle, but they hang on and could be a force in the postseason.
6 – LA Rams – The Rams played the Eagles very tough and had their chances. Now the NFC West title is up for grabs this Sunday against Seattle.
5 – Carolina – I know they beat the Vikings, but that was a super close game. I’m not convinced Carolina makes that jump this week. Let’s see them keep Aaron Rodgers out of the playoffs on Sunday and we’ll talk.
4 – Minnesota – The Vikings had every opportunity to win against the Panthers but couldn’t get it done. They should be able to lock up the NFC North this week against the Bengals.
3 – Pittsburgh – The Steelers have an issue on defense, but they are amazing right now on offense.
2 – New England – What a stunning loss to Miami. The scary thing is, this could be the last time Brady and Belichick lose this year.
1 – Philadelphia – Because they won, they get to keep the top spot this week. Losing Wentz is just awful for them and the league.
