The Baltimore Ravens squeaked by the Steelers without Ben Roethlisberger, but have maintained their winning ways and lead the suddenly-down AFC North.

Denver Broncos: The Real Deal or Fool’s Gold?

One of my biggest pet peeves in the NFL is when the pundits knock a team down that has a good record and claims that they “haven’t played anybody.” That can ring true for a good month in the early goings of any given NFL season, but when you’re past the halfway point, well it’s like Bill Parcells used to say; You are what your record says you are.
