1. Seattle Seahawks (5-1) - Even with a muffed field goal, the Seahawks were able to get the win against the Tennessee Titans. Russell Wilson also continues to show off his mobility. 2. Kansas City Chiefs (6-0) - One of the last unbeaten teams in the NFL. The defense showed off its ability to get penetration, as the unit sacked Oakland’s quarterback ten-times. 3. Denver Broncos (6-0) - Peyton Manning threw his second-interception of 2013, which went for six-points. The Denver offense relied on its running game and the defense remains to be the team’s only exposure. The reason for its number-three ranking is due to the team’s rough performance for the majority of the game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. 4. San Francisco 49ers (4-2) - Vernon Davis helped his quarterback in week-three. The tight end nabbed in 180-yards and two-touchdowns. 5. New England Patriots (5-1) - You can never count out Tom Brady, and this theory was proven in the final seconds of the Patriots game on Sunday evening. The team rallied late for the game-winning score. 6. Indianapolis Colts (5-2) - The Colts were unable to score a single touchdown against the San Diego Chargers. The team had five-drops, as the team falls to 5-2. 7. Chicago Bears (4-2) - The Bears broke a two-game losing streak against the New York Giants. Jay Cutler also continues to find chemistry with receiver Brandon Marshall. 8. Green Bay Packers (3-2) - The Packers went into hostile territory and took down the Baltimore Ravens. The defense, even without Clay Matthews, put up an impressive day. However, Aaron Rodgers was limited, as he only threw one-touchdown. 9. New Orleans Saints (5-1) - Despite the loss, Drew Brees and company should recover in the weeks to come. The good news is the injury to Jimmy Graham isn’t considered too serious. 10. Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) - The Bengals have taken first-place in the AFC North with its win on Sunday. Andy Dalton finally found some rhythm through the air, notching three-touchdowns. 11. Miami Dolphins (3-2) - It’s time to see if the Dolphins can break its two-game losing streak coming out of the BYE week. 12. Detroit Lions (4-2) - A breakout performance from tight end Joseph Fauria helped Matthew Stafford to pull out a come-back from behind victory against the Cleveland Browns. Fauria hauled in three-touchdown grabs. 13. Dallas Cowboys (3-3) - This week it was the Cowboys’ defense that stole the show. The unit held Washington to only 16-points. 14. San Diego Chargers (3-3) - Philip Rivers looked like his old self against the Colts, but the team still failed to produce touchdowns in the redzone. The Chargers’ defense held an opposing team to no touchdowns for the first-time since 2010. 15. Baltimore Ravens (3-3) - The Ravens had a late rally, but it fell short. The running game is now ranked last in the league. The bright spot for the team is that big-time playmaker Jacoby Jones has made his way back to the starting line-up for the first time since week-one. 16. St. Louis Rams (3-3) - Sam Bradford threw for three-touchdowns, as the defense scored three of its own during the team’s rout of the Houston Texans. 17. Arizona Cardinals (3-3) - The Cardinals played with a lot of heart against the San Francisco 49ers, but the offense hindered its efforts as the unit surrendered four-turnovers. 18. Tennessee Titans (3-3) - The Titans’ defense still shows it’s the strength of this team, while the offense continues to find its footing. 19. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) - The defense is the weakest link in the Philly, while the offense carries more than its fair share. 20. Carolina Panthers (2-3) - After an embarrassing showing in week-five, Cam Newton threw for three-touchdowns and only missed 6 of his 26 passes. 21. Buffalo Bills (2-4) - The Bills lost a close game at home, as the defense was embarrassed at home. The unit gave up over 280-yards in the first-half alone. 22. Cleveland Browns (3-3) - The teams’ three-game win streak was broken at the hands of the Detroit Lions. 23. New York Jets (3-3) - Geno Smith played like a true rookie, as he helped the Pittsburgh Steelers to its first win of the season. The first-year quarterback threw two-interceptions against a team who previously had recorded no turnovers. 24. Oakland Raiders (2-4) - Terrelle Pryor continues to be a work-in-progress. The young quarterback threw some costly interceptions. 25. Minnesota Vikings (1-4) - It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Josh Freeman take the reins at quarterback next week. Matt Cassel had a tough day, throwing two-picks. 26. Houston Texans (2-4) - This team hasn’t posted a win since week-two. The brightest spot for the offense game on the ground from Arian Foster. The running back ran for over 140-yards. 27. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4) - Ben Roethlisberger only threw for one-touchdown in a tightly contested game against the New York Jets. The defense also finally gained its first turnovers of 2013. 28. Washington Redskins (1-4) - Perhaps a name change isn’t the biggest concern for this team right now. The offense still struggles, as the team couldn’t capitalize on three redzone attempts. 29. Atlanta Falcons (1-4) - One of the more confusing teams in 2013, the Atlanta Falcons’ struggles continue. The defense is easily the weakest link for this team. 30. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6) - The Jaguars gave a valiant effort against the Denver Broncos, keeping it closer than most thought possible for the majority of the game. 31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5) - The team continues to fall down its own downward spiral. 32. New York Giants (0-6) - This is the first time the Giants’ have been 0-6 since 1976. Eli Manning continues to throw to the other team, throwing three-interceptions against the Bears. This article was written by David John.
