3. Denver Broncos (7-1)
Seven points in the first half? Down 21-7 in the third quarter? To the Redskins? The bye is coming at the perfect time. (Photo by Justin Edmonds/Getty Images)

7. Cincinnati Bengals (6-2)

Don’t look now, but the Bengals – thanks to Andy Dalton playing the best football of his career (11 touchdowns in three games) – just might be the best team in the AFC. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)
8. Green Bay Packers (5-2)
8. Green Bay Packers (5-2)
The Packers have won four straight games, including three by double digits. Their two losses came on the road to San Francisco and Cincinnati – teams that are riding five- and four-game winning streaks, respectively. This is the NFC North favorite. (Photo by Adam Bettcher/Getty Images)

Calvin Johnson (329 yards) came within eight yards of breaking Flipper Anderson’s 1989 single-game record. Detroit’s offense might have the highest ceiling in the NFC. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)

12. Dallas Cowboys (4-4)
If any team can record a +4 turnover margin and lose, you better believe it’s the Jerry Jones-owned Dallas Cowboys. Oh, and hey, Dez. Calm down. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

Hopefully the Chargers enjoyed the bye; five of their last nine games are against Denver, Kansas City and Cincinnati – teams with a combined 21-3 record. (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images)

Terrelle Pryor is only the fourth quarterback since 1970 to rush for at least 100 yards twice in one season, and his 93-yard touchdown run against Pittsburgh rewrote the record books. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)
19. Miami Dolphins (3-4)

Four straight Ls. It’s back to the drawing board in Miami. (Photo by Jim Rogash/Getty Images)
20. Cleveland Browns (3-5)

21. Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)
21. Philadelphia Eagles (3-5)
I don’t care who’s playing quarterback. The offense has scored three points in the last two weeks. That is unacceptable. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images)
22. Washington Redskins (2-5)
22. Washington Redskins (2-5)
Up 14, lose by 24. Forget the stats: This passing offense is one of the worst in football. (Photo by Dustin Bradford/Getty Images)
23. Houston Texans (3-4)
23. Houston Texans (3-4)
With the Colts coming to town, five straight losses will likely become six. (Photo by Peter Aiken/Getty Images)
24. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5)
24. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-5)
Nineteen rushes for 35 yards. Five sacks allowed. This O-Line is awful. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images)

27. Tennessee Titans (3-4)
Losers of three straight, the Titans couldn’t ask for a more favorable post-bye schedule – at 3-5 St. Louis and against 0-8 Jacksonville. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
28. New York Giants (2-6)
28. New York Giants (2-6)
How bad is the NFC East? The Giants were the only team in that division to win on Sunday, and they didn’t score a single touchdown. They’re also – after starting 0-6 – just two games back of Dallas in the standings. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)
29. Buffalo Bills (3-5)
29. Buffalo Bills (3-5)
The game was still respectable in the fourth quarter. Playing against the Saints in New Orleans, that’s about as much as you can ask from a losing team. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-6)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-6)
Greg Jennings was a non-factor against his former team, but at least Adrian Peterson scored. Fantasy owners rejoice. (Photo by Hannah Foslien/Getty Images)
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-7)
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-7)
Mike Glennon (six touchdowns, three interceptions) hasn’t been terrible by any means, but his per-game attempts have gone from 43 to 43 to 44 to 51. Way to ease in the rookie, Greg Schiano. (Photo by Al Messerschmidt/Getty Images)
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-8)
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-8)
Jacksonville is 0-4 at home, 0-4 on the road and has lost every game by double digits. (Photo by Charlie Crowhurst/Getty Images)
