4. Seattle Seahawks (5-1)
4. Seattle Seahawks (5-1)
Russell Wilson hasn’t rushed for a touchdown all season. He’s also failed to throw for a touchdown in two of his last three games, and he threw for just one in two others. Hmm... (Photo by Steve Dykes/Getty Images)
5. New Orleans Saints (5-1)
5. New Orleans Saints (5-1)

The Bengals continue to play up or down to their competition – there’s no way that game should have gone to overtime – but still they sit atop the AFC North. (Photo by Tom Szczerbowski/Getty Images)
7. New England Patriots (5-1)
7. New England Patriots (5-1)
The Patriots are 33-3 in their last 36 home games, but they stole one on Sunday. They’ve also won three games by three points or fewer. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)

16. Cleveland Browns (3-3)
16. Cleveland Browns (3-3)
Cleveland led Detroit 17-7 but got shut out after halftime – at home, no less. That can’t happen. (Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images)
17. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3)
17. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3)
Wow, four touchdowns (three pass, one rush) and no turnovers for Nick Foles. Granted, they came against Tampa Bay, but in hindsight, the preseason quarterback competition with Michael Vick makes a whole lot more sense. (Photo by Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)
18. San Diego Chargers (3-3)

The nine points were the fewest allowed by the Chargers since Week 8 of 2012, when they allowed seven in a losing effort against the Browns. (Photo by Kevork Djansezian/Getty Images)

21. Tennessee Titans (3-3)
21. Tennessee Titans (3-3)
In two starts since taking over for the injured Jake Locker (hip), Ryan Fitzpatrick has one touchdown and four interceptions. He’s also, as you might expect, 0-2. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)
22. Houston Texans (2-4)
22. Houston Texans (2-4)
The Texans have lost four straight, including three by 21+ points. Still, the cheering after Matt Schaub’s injury was uncalled for. (Photo by Bob Levey/Getty Images)
23. Carolina Panthers (2-3)

Carolina’s two wins have been by a combined 73-10 – against teams (Giants and Vikings) with a combined 1-10 record. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)
24. Oakland Raiders (2-4)
24. Oakland Raiders (2-4)
It was still a game in the fourth quarter. That’s what Terrelle Pryor has to keep telling himself. Well, that, and don’t get sacked 10 times and throw three interceptions. (Photo by Peter Aiken/Getty Images)
25. Atlanta Falcons (1-4)
25. Atlanta Falcons (1-4)
If the Falcons can’t beat the Bucs at home following a bye, Tony Gonzalez might want to consider early retirement. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
26. Washington Redskins (1-4)
26. Washington Redskins (1-4)
RG3 looked much more mobile, but the offense mustered just one touchdown against the Cowboys despite having two weeks to prepare. Oh, and Dallas had just given up 51 points to Denver. All in all, not a great night. (Photo by Tom Pennington/Getty Images)
27. Minnesota Vikings (1-4)
27. Minnesota Vikings (1-4)
Trailing 35-3 at home to a 1-3 team is the definition of an uninspiring performance. It might be Josh Freeman time. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)
28. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4)
28. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4)
Ladies and gentlemen, the Pittsburgh Steelers actually forced a turnover. In fact, they forced two! Thus, a win over a rookie quarterback. (Photo by Mitchell Leff/Getty Images)
29. Buffalo Bills (2-4)
29. Buffalo Bills (2-4)
The NFL isn’t a moral victory kind of league, but given the circumstances (Thad Lewis starting at quarterback, no Stevie Johnson), forcing overtime against a winning team is as much of a moral victory as you’ll see. (Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty Images)
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5)
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5)
Looking at the schedule, I’m still not sure when that first win is coming. Nov. 11 at home against Miami? Maybe? (Photo by Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)
31. New York Giants (0-6)
