12. Denver Broncos (3-3); LW-15

Taking full advantage of the Chargers’ choke job.

11. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3); LW-7

So…they have issues turning the ball over on offense, so they fire their defensive coordinator?

The Giants whooped them again.

4. New York Giants (4-2); LW-8

This team’s even better with Victor Cruz supposedly healthy.

3. Baltimore Ravens (5-1); LW-4

Injuries aside, you can see the identity of this team shifting to the offensive side of the ball.

2. Houston Texans (5-1); LW-1

As a Ravens fan, I’m hoping they’re still licking their wounds from the Packers beating on Sunday.

1. Atlanta Falcons (6-0); LW-2

They won despite Matt Ryan not having the best day.
