Rank   Team Record   Change   Comment
1 New England Patriots New England Patriots 3-0
Check out that schedule. The Patriots should be 8-0 when they face the Giants and possibly 10-0 when they face the Broncos. At this rate, it’s not a matter of winning the division; it’s a matter of hosting the AFC Championship.
2 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers 4-0
The Packers are the rare NFL team that can score 40 and win pretty or score 17 and win ugly. The two-touchdown win in San Fran wasn’t as close as the final score indicated.
3 Denver Broncos Denver Broncos 4-0
Denver is winning with defense, toughness and timely throws from Peyton Manning. That’s a winning formula now, and it’ll be a winning formula come January.
4 Cincinnati Bengals Cincinnati Bengals 4-0
▲ 1
Andy Dalton threw for 300+ yards, and Jeremy Hill and Giovani Bernard combined for four touchdowns. The Bengals are 4-0 for the first time since 2005.
5 Atlanta Falcons Atlanta Falcons 4-0
▲ 2
That’s 342 total yards and six touchdowns in two games for Devonta Freeman. With Julio Jones out wide, this offense is scary, scary good.
6 Arizona Cardinals Arizona Cardinals 3-1
▼ 2
The Cardinals committed three turnovers and had to settle for five field goals, including three in the red zone. That was too much to overcome, even against St. Louis.
7 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers 4-0
▲ 4
The Panthers forced five Tampa Bay turnovers, returned two for scores and got solid play from Cam Newton. Carolina doesn’t face Atlanta until December, but it appears those two teams will be battling all season.
8 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks 2-2
▲ 2
You have to wonder how long Russell Wilson’s magic show can continue behind a shoddy offensive line, but Kam Chancellor may have made the play of the year.
9 New York Jets New York Jets 3-1
▲ 3
The Jets brought the ground game to London, rushing for 200+ yards. They’re going to win a lot of games that way.
10 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills 2-2
▼ 4
The Bills have to start faster. They’ve trailed at halftime by double digits in each of their two losses.
11 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers 2-2
▼ 3
If you miss four field goals in four games, that’s what happens. So long, Scobee.
12 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys 2-2
▼ 3
The Cowboys led in the fourth quarter against Atlanta and forced overtime against New Orleans. With a backup quarterback – and with no Dez Bryant – that’s all you can ask for.
13 Indianapolis Colts Indianapolis Colts 2-2
▲ 1
Yes, it came against Jacksonville, but anytime you win without your all-world quarterback, it’s a big win. Well done, Mr. Hasselbeck.
14 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings 2-2
▼ 1
Minnesota gave the Broncos all they could handle – in Denver, no less – before losing on a late field goal. There’s no shame in that loss.
15 New York Giants New York Giants 2-2
▲ 8
That’s back-to-back wins for a team that could easily be 4-0. Don’t sleep on the Giants, especially in that division.
16 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders 2-2
▼ 1
The Raiders were a play or two away from three straight wins. No worries. For a team this young, it’s all a learning experience.
17 San Diego Chargers San Diego Chargers 2-2
▲ 3
It’s early, sure, but the Chargers are averaging 31.5 points at home and just 16.5 on the road. That can’t continue.
18 St. Louis Rams St. Louis Rams 2-2
▲ 3
So the Rams beat the Seahawks and Cardinals but lost to the Redskins. Okay.
19 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens 1-3
▲ 5
Finally in the win column. Browns and 49ers upcoming. Things are looking up.
20 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs 1-3
▼ 3
That’s three straight disappointing losses to arguably the three best teams in football. If there’s a better 1-3 team, I don’t know who it is.
21 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles 1-3
▼ 5
The Eagles have been held to three points or fewer in three of four first halves this season. They are 0-3 in those games. Chip, you got some explaining to do.
22 San Francisco 49ers San Francisco 49ers 1-3
▼ 4
The 49ers have lost three straight and scored just 10 points in their last two games. Colin Kaepernick has three touchdowns and five picks on the season.
23 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins 1-3
▼ 4
The offense (16.3 points per game) just wasn’t clicking. Sorry, Joe. It was time.
24 Cleveland Browns Cleveland Browns 1-3
▼ 2
Another close loss, this time in San Diego. Fourth-quarter games usually come down to quarterback play. As a result, Cleveland will be on the short end of the stick more often than not this season.
25 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints 1-3
▲ 6
It’s going to be tough sledding in the NFC South, but Sunday night felt like old times in New Orleans, with the magic of Drew Brees winning the day against Dallas. The next two (at Philly, against Atlanta) are must-win for the Saints to remain relevant.
26 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans 1-2
▲ 2
The Titans have several winnable games upcoming and play their next three at home. If Tennessee does anything this year, now is the time.
27 Washington Redskins Washington Redskins 2-2
▲ 2
The Redskins are at .500. D.C. should strongly consider a victory parade.
28 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears 1-3
▲ 4
Jay Cutler returned and the Bears got a win. I’m just as shocked as you are.
29 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars 1-3
▼ 4
Jason Myers went Josh Scobee, and Jacksonville lost to Indy despite not facing Andrew Luck, winning the turnover battle 2-0 and out-rushing Indy 142-60. Ouch.
30 Houston Texans Houston Texans 1-3
▼ 4
Awful day all around for Houston, which trailed Atlanta 42-0 through three quarters. But hey, at least Arian Foster is back.
31 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers 1-3
▼ 1
The mistakes continue for Jameis Winston, who has seven touchdowns and seven picks on the season.
32 Detroit Lions Detroit Lions 0-4
▼ 5
Based on talent, this isn’t the worst team in football. Based on record, it is.
