We are almost at the halfway point of the NFL season. Now that some division winners have started to show separation from their counterparts, the top 12 teams in the NFL have become a little clearer. The reason why we are doing 12 teams is because that’s how many teams make the postseason. Still, the rankings do not have to be split evenly between the conferences.
Without a doubt, the most impressive team early in the season has been the Denver Broncos, but they are not the only team to display championship material. There is a team in their own division that may have the kryptonite to thwart Denver’s destiny. The Kansas City Chiefs have been every bit as impressive on the defensive side of the ball.
The NFC has some powerful teams, but the conference seems down on the surface. One reason is due to the Giants and the Falcons combining for one win in the first six weeks of the season.
The New Orleans Saints have had a nice bounce back season. Even though they lost last week to the surprising Patriots, Drew Brees has the Saints trending upward.
Here’s a look at the top 12 NFL teams.
