4. New England Patriots - The Ravens were awful, but give a banged up Patriots team so much credit for such a convincing win in a very tough place to play.

5. San Francisco 49ers - The 49ers needed a little magic in the final game at Candlestick Park to get past the Falcons.

11. Indianapolis Colts - I'm not sure how, but the Indianapolis defense really stepped up in a win over the Chiefs.

12. Baltimore Ravens - It was stunning to see the Ravens play so badly at home, a place where they are almost unbeatable, on a 4-game winning streak and with so much on the line.

13. Dallas Cowboys - I hope Tony Romo gets his due after orchestrating a fourth quarter comeback to keep his team's playoff hopes alive.

19. Green Bay Packers - Will Aaron Rodgers return in Week 17 with the division title and a playoff berth at stake?

20. Tennessee Titans - The Titans could be a .500 team, but will that be enough to save Mike Munchak's job?

21. New York Giants - Give a lot of credit to Tom Coughlin and the Giants for continuing to fight despite having nothing to play for.

22. St. Louis Rams - If the Rams can get better at quarterback and wide receiver, they may have something.

23. New York Jets - With a win next week, the Jets can finish the season at the .500 mark. What a terrific job by Rex Ryan.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - The Greg Schiano job watch continues. Will he return?

25. Buffalo Bills - If the Bills can figure out their passing game, their future is bright.

26. Cleveland Browns - Remember earlier in the season when the Browns were in first place in the AFC North? Seems like decades ago.
