1. Denver Broncos - The Broncos have a nearly unstoppable offense, but their defense was really exposed against the Cowboys.
2. Seattle Seahawks - After falling behind and rallying for wins the past two weeks, the Seahawks held a lead for much of the day but couldn't hold on against the Colts.
3. New Orleans Saints - The Saints pulled out a big win in Chicago, a victory that really affirms that they are right back among the NFL's elite.
4. San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers got back to old school football, pounding the Texans on the ground and making Matt Schaub's life miserable.
5. Green Bay Packers - The Packers defense took advantage of a Lions team without star wideout Calvin Johnson to move to just a half game out of first in the division.
6. New England Patriots - For the first time in 53 games, Tom Brady did not throw a touchdown pass despite the return of Danny Amendola.
7. Baltimore Ravens - The Ravens showed a bit of improvement in the running game, but more importantly, came out of Miami with a huge road win over a potential playoff contender.
8. Kansas City Chiefs - The Chiefs continue to play smart football by winning the turnover and field position battles. Barring a collapse, they are playoff-bound.
9. Chicago Bears - The Bears need their defense to start playing better if they want to be a playoff team.
10. Indianapolis Colts - T.Y. Hilton hauled in two touchdowns Sunday. The Colts really need to feature him more in the passing game.
11. Cincinnati Bengals - The offense once again struggled, but the defense took care of things.
12. Houston Texans - That's now four straight weeks Matt Schaub has thrown a "pick six." Ouch. The Texans are only 2-3, but they could easily be 0-5.
13. Dallas Cowboys - It's so hard to fault Tony Romo after playing so unbelievably well, but he once again made a huge mistake at the end of a close game.
14. Miami Dolphins - The Dolphins remain a playoff contender, but their offensive line has really been exposed the past couple of weeks.
15. Detroit Lions - Without the services of Calvin Johnson, the Lions really had no chance on the road against the division rival Packers.
16. Atlanta Falcons - They have one of the worst offensive lines in the league, they have no pass rush, and now they might not have Julio Jones for the rest of the season. Good luck.
17. San Diego Chargers - Philip Rivers had another big statistical game, but penchant for turnovers returned against Oakland.
18. Tennessee Titans - Ryan Fitzpatrick's slow start and late mistakes cost the Titans against the Chiefs.
19. Philadelphia Eagles - Michael Vick was having a huge day running the ball until he hurt his hamstring, but Nick Foles came on in relief and was very impressive.
20. Cleveland Browns - Don't look now, but the Browns are in first place and have won three straight since trading away Trent Richardson. Of course, there is always bad news with the Browns, and Brian Hoyer is out for the year with a torn ACL.
21. Minnesota Vikings - The Vikings will come out of the bye with some momentum and maybe a quarterback controversy following their win over Pittsburgh.
22. Arizona Cardinals - The Cardinals aren't pretty too watch, but that defense is criminally underrated.
23. Carolina Panthers - Cam Newton seems to have extended the sophomore slump into his third NFL season.
24. Washington Redskins - The good news for the Redskins is that the Giants are terrible, Michael Vick isn't going to make it through a whole season, and Tony Romo is still Tony Romo at the end of games.
25. St. Louis Rams - The Rams finally had a chance to pile up the stats facing off against the embarrassing Jaguars.
26. Buffalo Bills - E.J. Manuel's knee injury looked very similar to that of RGIII's when he was hit by Haloti Ngata. The Bills probably cost themselves any chance at playoff contention by having such a poor backup quarterback.
27. New York Jets - It's hard to believe, but the Jets went into Atlanta and came out with a win thanks to a mistake-free effort from Geno Smith.
28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Josh Freeman finally got his wish, but the Bucs would have been smart to let him play out the season and see if he showed any signs of turning it around.
29. New York Giants - It's really hard to believe the Giants are actually this bad. Three intentional grounding calls on Eli Manning in one game? I really like Tom Coughlin, but it's like the entire team has already thrown in the towel on the season.
30. Oakland Raiders - With Terrelle Pryor under center, the Raiders are actually a halfway decent football team.
31. Pittsburgh Steelers - The bye couldn't come soon enough for the Steelers, who trail the entire division by 2.5 games. It's only Week 5.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars - Where to start? The Jags lost by two touchdowns to the hapless Rams and lost starting left tackle Luke Joeckel for the season just days after trading away Eugene Monroe.
