1. Patriots (+0)
Pats clean up the Redskins, continue to dominate.
2. Panthers (+2)
Big wins over Seattle and Green Bay propel Carolina to the two-spot.
3. Bengals (+0)
Playing Cleveland gives any team an opportunity to get back on track.
4. Broncos (-2)
Denver’s streak comes to an end against Indianapolis, who had just gotten a new offensive coordinator. Wow.
5. Packers (+1)
A nice comeback attempt at the end wasn’t enough but Green Bay is struggling this year and is in danger of losing their control of the NFC North.
6. Jets (-1)
Jets haven’t looked like themselves for two straight contests.
7. Vikings (+0)
Vikings pass up St. Louis. Hopefully Bridgewater can return next week.
8. Rams (+0)
Todd Gurley can’t do everything. This team doesn’t have much offense.
9. Cardinals (+0)
Bye. Arizona needs to come out scoring next week against division-rival Seattle.
10. Bills (+3)
Now that Buffalo is healthy, let’s see what they can really do.
11. Raiders (-1)
Raiders are still a playoff contender, but I don’t think they can afford to get in shootouts with teams like they did this week with the Steelers.
12. Steelers (+0)
Steelers beat the Raiders in a shootout. Shame they couldn’t have won last week against Cincinnati. That game was theirs.
13. Giants (+1)
Giants with an easy win over Tampa Bay. Up next, a Super Bowl rematch with New England. I’ve pegged it as my game of the week.
14. Eagles (+3)
Philly’s an average team right now. Let’s see if it lasts.
15. Seahawks (+0)
Bye. Can Seattle turn things around?
16. Chiefs (+0)
Bye. Despite the absence of Jamaal Charles, the team remains in the playoff hunt.
17. Falcons (-6)
After an impressive 5-0, Atlanta has lost three of four and against poor opponents, too. The season is slipping away.
18. Colts (+1)
Who would have thought Indianapolis would be the team to end Denver’s streak? With that said, I’m not giving the Colts too much credit just yet. Let’s see if it was another fluke like the Patriots’ game.
19. Browns (-1)
That’s four losses in a row for Cleveland.
20. Ravens (+0)
Bye. Let’s see how the Ravens return.
21. Redskins (+0)
Lose to the Patriots, but a 27-10 score isn’t a blowout.
22. Dolphins (+1)
Maybe all the Miami fans will calm down again and welcome reality back after getting dismantled by a healthy Buffalo squad.
23. Cowboys (-1)
Just keep on losing Dallas. I’m loving every second of it.
24. Jaguars (+2)
A narrow loss against the Jets deserves some credit.
25. Chargers (-1)
San Diego has been a complete disappointment this year.
26. Titans (+2)
Titans are still one of the worst teams in the league but the defense has been better this year and Mariota has showed some promise.
27. Saints (-2)
The Saints still have no defense. Brees vs the world isn’t a good team philosophy.
28. Bears (+2)
The Bears beat a bad team, but they’ve surprised us before. Do they still have some tricks up their sleeves?
29. Texans (+0)
Bye. Somehow, they’re still in the playoff hunt.
30. 49ers (+1)
They beat Atlanta with Gabbert. That’s incredible and pitiful if you’re a Falcons fan.
31. Buccaneers (-4)
The choking continues.
32. Lions (+0)
Bye. A new offensive coordinator and a new front office. How does Detroit return to the field?
Biggest Climb: Bills, Eagles (+3)
Biggest Fall: Falcons (-6)
