1. Denver Broncos - The Broncos got off to a slow start offensively and their suddenly maligned defense couldn't slow down the Colts passing attack. So much for an undefeated season.
2. Seattle Seahawks - Russell Wilson got knocked around by the Cardinals but still turned in one of his best efforts of the season.
3. New Orleans Saints - The Saints had the week off to try and get over their disappointing loss to the Patriots.
4. San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers looked more like a legitimate Super Bowl contender in a rout of the Titans in Nashville.
5. Green Bay Packers - No Randall Cobb, no James Jones, no problems. The Packers still have Aaron Rodgers, and that's more than enough against the Browns.
6. New England Patriots - After last week's exhilirating victory, the Patriots got a taste of what it feels like to be on the other side of such a tight game.
7. Kansas City Chiefs - The Chiefs are now leading the AFC West and are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL.
8. Indianapolis Colts - The Colts want to be a power football team, but they are so much better when they just let Andrew Luck sling it around to his talented receivers. Unfortunately, Reggie Wayne is out for the season with a torn ACL, so maybe now they will have to turn back to the running game.
9. Cincinnati Bengals - The Bengals have been fortunate to come out on the winning end of some real close games, but they now have a two-game lead in the AFC North.
10. Dallas Cowboys - The Cowboys banged-up defense somehow held Chip Kelly's offense to just three points for a key NFC East road victory.
11. San Diego Chargers - In previous year, the Chargers would have come East for a 1 p.m. kickoff after playing Monday night and laid an egg against the winless Jags. This year, they rolled to an 18-point win.
12. Baltimore Ravens - The Ravens have lost three games by a combined eight points, all of which featured very questionable coaching decisions. The bye couldn't come at a better time for the reeling defending champs.
13. Detroit Lions - Detroit had its share of chances against the Bengals but couldn't come up with a win, which really tightens up the NFC North race.
14. Miami Dolphins - The Dolphins have lost a couple close games but are starting to be exposed as a pretender rather than a playoff contender.
15. Chicago Bears - The Bears lost Jay Cutler to injury Sunday, and his status is key. That said, the defense has suffered a rash of injuries and they are really starting to take their toll on the team.
16. Tennessee Titans - After a strong effort in Seattle, the Titans laid an egg against the 49ers in Jake Locker's first game back from a hip injury.
17. Houston Texans - The Texans put in a solid performance with Case Keenum at quarterback but came up just a bit short. Brian Cushing is out for the season (again), Arian Foster is ailing and this team's playoff hopes are just about done.
18. Atlanta Falcons - Atlanta got back on track at home against the Bucs coming off the bye. If they could somehow get Roddy White healthy, maybe they have an outside shot at the playoffs.
19. Philadelphia Eagles - After lighting up the Bucs defense, the Eagles couldn't muster anything against the Cowboys. With Nick Foles leaving early with an injury, it looks like the job is Michael Vick's once again.
20. Carolina Panthers - Don't look now, but here come the surging Panthers, who are now .500 for the first time under Ron Rivera.
21. New York Jets - The Jets pulled off a tremendous, come-from-behind win over the Patriots to at least put some pressure on New England in the AFC East.
22. Arizona Cardinals - Carson Palmer is just a shell of his former self. He and Matt Schaub have a lot in common these days.
23. Cleveland Browns - Don't worry, the Browns are back! A second straight loss for Cleveland, and their time at the top of the AFC North was very short-lived.
24. Washington Redskins - What a wild win for the Redskins, but another week of poor special teams and giving up 41 points at home to a Bears team without Jay Cutler for most of the day is highly concerning.
25. Buffalo Bills - The Bills kept their playoff hopes alive with a huge win in Miami. Thaddeus Lewis deserves a ton of credit for trying to keep the Bills afloat.
26. Pittsburgh Steelers - The Steelers kept alive their slim playoff hopes with an ugly win over Baltimore. Do those teams ever play a game not decided by a field goal?
27. St. Louis Rams - The Rams momentum came to a screeching halt in a loss to Carolina, and to make matters worse, Sam Bradford tore his ACL and is out for the season.
28. New York Giants - It doesn't get much uglier than Monday night, but the Giants have their first win of the season.
29. Oakland Raiders - When will the Raiders finally give up on Darren McFadden staying healthy?
30. Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings were blown out by a team on their fifth running back, and Adrian Peterson couldn't get anything going.
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Mike Glennon isn't terrible, but the Bucs are still winless. Greg Schiano's days in Tampa are numbered.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars - The Jaguars seemed to be in a prime spot to pull an upset against the Chargers, but only managed two field goals in an ugly loss.
