September 19, 2012 | Glenn Clark

16. Arizona Cardinals (22)

They won in Foxborough, but Kevin Kolb is their quarterback.

15. New York Jets (15)

Good teams will lose in Pittsburgh. Whether or not the Jets are one of them is still to be determined.

14. Cincinnati Bengals (19)

There’s a great deal to be learned about this team.

13. Chicago Bears (7)

Good teams will lose in Green Bay. Whether or not the Bears are one of them is still to be determined.

12. Detroit Lions (11)

They’re looking forward to seeing other teams run the football.

11. Denver Broncos (9)

Peyton Manning threw two more interceptions since you started this page.

10. San Diego Chargers (16)

They’re 2-0. Don’t they know they’re supposed to win games AFTER the season is already over?

9. Pittsburgh Steelers (14)

They weren’t going to go 0-16, you were just wishing they would.

8. New York Giants (8)

They’re going to win games, they’re just going to have to work to win them.

7. New England Patriots (1)

The Cards? Really?

6. Baltimore Ravens (3)

They lost by a point at Philadelphia. It’s not the end of the world, it just feels like it.

5. Philadelphia Eagles (13)

You’d say they have to get their turnovers down, but do they?

4. Green Bay Packers (6)

We all knew they just needed to find new ways to get the ball in the hands of their punter.

3. Atlanta Falcons (5)

Has there been a team that’s looked better?

2. San Francisco 49ers (4)

Oh right, them.

1. Houston Texans (2)

And I guess maybe them.
