Rank   Team Record   Change   Comment
1 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 10-1
Another week, another win. That’s 10 straight.
2 New England Patriots New England Patriots 9-2
▲ 1
Yes, Brady was without Gronk for basically the entire game, and yes, it was on the road, but the Patriots shouldn’t need late-game heroics from the offense and defense to beat the three-win Jets. New England has looked off in back-to-back road games against subpar competition. Let’s see if a home game against the Rams can change that.
3 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 9-2
▲ 1
The Raiders had control, then lost it, then regained it. Derek Carr overcame a gruesome injury to his throwing hand, but Amari Cooper, who has been held under 60 receiving yards in three of four, needs to get rolling again. Still, it’s hard to be angry about five straight wins.
4 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 7-3-1
▼ 2
Six sacks, two picks, two fumbles and five points. Not a great day for Russell Wilson and the offense.
5 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 8-3
▲ 2
Big win for Kansas City. The Chiefs have won six of seven, including four straight road games. Impressive.
6 New York Giants New York Giants 8-3
Eli and OBJ torched the Browns. Shocking.
7 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 7-4
▼ 2
Even with a nine-point safety, that’s a game Denver should have won. The defense deserves a mulligan for the game-tying drive given up at the end of regulation, but when it comes to the playoffs, the Broncos, as of now, are on the outside looking in.
8 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 7-4
In his last four games, Taylor Gabriel has five touchdowns (four receiving, one rushing) on just 16 touches. That’s absurd.
9 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 7-4
▲ 1
The Detroit Lions enter December atop the NFC North. Mind. Blown.
10 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 7-4
▲ 1
Ryan Tannehill has seven touchdowns and one interception over his last three games. The Dolphins have won six straight.
11 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 6-4-1
▼ 2
Kirk Cousins has thrown for 813 yards in two games against Dallas this season, and Washington lost both. That’s rough.
12 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 6-5
▲ 1
Ben, Brown and Bell were more than enough against the Luck-less Colts.
13 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 6-5
▲ 3
The game ball goes to Justin Tucker, but the offense must be better. Joe Flacco has thrown for just six touchdowns in nine games against non-Cleveland opponents.
14 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 6-5
▲ 3
The wins over Cincinnati and Jacksonville were nice. Let’s see what happens in Oakland.
15 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 6-6
▲ 5
The Titans may want to consider giving Derrick Henry even more carries down the stretch. Defenses are starting to wear down, and those rookie legs are going to be mighty fresh.
16 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 6-5
▲ 6
After stunning the Chiefs in Kansas City, the Buccaneers held the Seahawks to five points in Tampa Bay. Dirk Koetter’s bunch has won three straight.
17 Houston Texans Houston Texans 6-5
▼ 5
After Sunday’s three-pick day against San Diego, Brock Osweiler has thrown for 12 touchdowns and 13 interceptions on the season. That’s not what Houston had in mind this past offseason.
18 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 6-5
▼ 4
The Vikings have averaged just 13.8 points in their five losses.
19 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 5-6
▲ 2
A running back scored a touchdown and the Packers won. This is serious stuff.
20 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 5-6
▼ 2
Given the circumstances, Scott Tolzien played about as well as one could reasonably expect. Indy, however, must be better in the red zone.
21 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 5-6
▲ 3
Drew Brees accounted for five touchdowns, and the Saints rushed for 200+ yards. Yup, that’ll do it.
22 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 4-6-1
▼ 7
The Cardinals have allowed 30+ points in three of their last four games.
23 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 5-6
▲ 4
The playoffs remain a longshot, but Philip Rivers has thrown at least two touchdowns in four straight games.
24 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 5-6
▼ 5
The post-September swoon continues. The Eagles have lost six of eight.
25 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 4-7
▼ 2
How do you score 25 unanswered points and lose?
26 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 3-7-1
▼ 1
The offense simply refuses to break 20. Cincy remains the Browns’ best shot at a win.
27 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams 4-7
▼ 1
The bad? The Rams lost by 28 points. The good? Jared Goff wasn’t the problem – at least not the main one.
28 New York Jets New York Jets 3-8
Credit the Jets for hanging tough with the Patriots, but in the end, New England had Tom Brady and New York didn’t.
29 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 2-9
I’ll say this for Matt Barkley: He was better than Jay Cutler would have been.
30 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 2-9
Six straight losses.
31 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 1-10
Ten straight losses – and a tough final play for Colin Kaepernick.
32 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 0-12
Where would the Browns be without Terrelle Pryor? Probably still 0-12, but hey, Pryor’s been good.
