October 30, 2013 | Glenn Clark

Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-8; LW-32)

Is London still excited to have them?

31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-8; LW-31)

Mike Glennon might actually be a QB.

30. Minnesota Vikings (1-6; LW-30)

Their QB carousel continues…

29. Philadelphia Eagles (3-5; LW-19)

Their offense is on life support…

28. St. Louis Rams (3-5; LW-29)

Robert Quinn might actually be a player for them…he already is!

27. Washington Redskins (2-5; LW-26)

RGIII gets hurt again. What’s new?

26. Atlanta Falcons (2-5; LW-20)

Steven Jackson is DONE…

25. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5; LW-24)

Oakland Raiders OWN them…

24. Cleveland Browns (3-5; LW-27)

Jason Campbell actually looked good against the best defense in the league…

23. Buffalo Bills (3-5; LW-25)

Thad Lewis flame is dying…

22. New York Giants (2-6, LW-28)

Didn’t really look impressive against Philadelphia, but might be righting the ship.

21. Houston Texans (2-5; LW-18)

We’ll see what Case Keenum can do in game #2, but they are way too banged up to be competitive…

20. Oakland Raiders (3-4; LW-23)

Terrelle Pryor might still be running…

19. Miami Dolphins (3-4; LW-16)

Falling apart…

18. Tennessee Titans (3-4; LW-18)

Don’t count them out…

17. New York Jets (4-4; LW-14)

Need to avoid a collapse to save Rex Ryan’s job…

16. Baltimore Ravens (3-4; LW-15)

Missed an opportunity to improve at the trade deadline…

15. Carolina Panthers (4-3; LW-22)

Their defense has been impressive…

14. Arizona Cardinals (4-4; LW-21)

Would be wise to give Andre Ellington the job…

13. Dallas Cowboys (4-4; LW-13)

Should have just put all 11 guys on Calvin Johnson the final drive of the game. He probably would have still caught the ball though…

12. Chicago Bears (4-3; LW-12)

Bigger loss? Jay Cutler or Lance Briggs?

11. San Diego Chargers (4-3; LW-11)

Need Ryan Mathews to get going…

10. Detroit Lions (5-3; LW-10)

Their practice every day should be four hours of throwing to Calvin Johnson.

9. New England Patriots (6-2, LW-7)

It’s hilarious that they have looked suspect SINCE Gronkowski came back…

8.  Cincinnati Bengals (6-2; LW-8)

If Andy Dalton keeps this up, holy hell…I’m scared.

7. Green Bay Packers (5-2; LW-9)

Eddie Lacy makes this team a much more dangerous one…

6. San Francisco 49ers (6-2; LW-6)

Beating teams easily, but not sexy either.

5. Indianapolis Colts (5-2; LW-5)

We’ll see how they do in their first action since Reggie Wayne’s injury…

4. New Orleans Saints (6-1; LW-4)

Jimmy Graham looked okay Sunday with a torn ligament in his foot…

3. Seattle Seahawks (7-1; LW-3)

A vulnerable team on the road…just ask St. Louis.

2. Denver Broncos (7-1; LW-2)

Their defense might be back, which could be scary…

1. Kansas City Chiefs (8-0; LW-1)

Cleveland gave them a run, but ultimately they pulled out…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
