1. San Diego Chargers (1) (10-2)
It can be the warm temperatures of San Diego or cold Buffalo, and LaDanian Tomlinson and the Chargers STILL get it done. They werenâ€™t able to pass the ball, but the ground game and defense held on to beat the Bills.
2. Indianapolis Colts (3) (10-2)
Yes, they lost, but on a Matt Bryant-like miracle Field Goal. But honestly, they are still right up there amongst the best. The defense really needs to man up against the run, but other than that, they are a dominating team. Plus, everyone else at the top of my rankings did poorly this week.
3. New England Patriots (4) (9-3)
They should have lost. But as long as the Best QB in the NFL, Tom Brady, is taking the snaps, things will turn out just fine. Maroneyâ€™s injury really hurts this team; however, weâ€™ll see how it affects them, if it keeps him sidelined at all.
4. Chicago Bears (5) (10-2)
â€śWe are 10-2, we won the division, and Rex is our Quarterback.â€ť Lovie Smith said that over and over, and he means it. This team is capable of winning with Rex as the quarterback, even if he has horrible games. Plus, the defense is unbelievable, and the special teams keeps putting points up, so I donâ€™t see why they need a change, either.
5. Baltimore Ravens (2) (9-3)
The offense laid an egg, which, to be honest, is the big fear with this team, because unlike the Bears, this defense, and this special teams without Sams, is incapable of keeping this team in games on it own by putting points on the board.
6. New Orleans Saints (
Reggie Bush entered the game with 1 touchdown from scrimmage, and left with 5. He also accounted for over 70% of the receiving yards for the Saints. Needless to say, thatâ€™s why he was taken so high in the draft. Plus, Colston should be getting healthy soon, which will help them out a great deal.
7. Seattle Seahawks (7) (8-4)
Since Josh Brown is the new Adam Vinateri, this team has been able to win a lot of games they should have otherwise lost. They beat a good Broncos team with a young QB, so it wasnâ€™t a HUGE win, but it meant a lot in terms of record.
8. Dallas Cowboys (6) (8-4)
I know they won, and are 8-4, so why did they drop? Because unlike EVERY MEMBER OF THE MEDIA IN THE ENTIRE UNITED STATESâ€¦I think Tony Romo is okay, just okay. And I donâ€™t think he had a good week. Experts are saying he made the throw he needed to make, and all Iâ€™ve seen is a pass to an open T.O. to set up a score. Did he light the Bucs up on Turkey Day? Yes. But we havenâ€™t exactly been superb on defense. They barely beat a sinking ship from New York, and face a REAL test this week.
9. Cincinnati Bengals (11) (7-5)
They beat the Ravens in a defensive struggle, a type of game I wouldnâ€™t have expected them to win, which is a sign of a good team. The running game hasnâ€™t really shown up, and the defense is lacking a bit, but the offense does what it needs to do.
10. Kansas City Chiefs (9) (7-5)
Sure they lost to the Browns, but it was in OT and somewhat of a let down game. Trent Green is back and in business, and this team should be in the playoff run til the very last week.See the rest here
So I know they don't mean all that much haha, but they are fun to read. Thoughts?
