Half of my Top 10 from last week lost. That made my job difficult. Make sure, as always, to get mad at me if I disrespected your team.
A game of cat and mouse has the 49ers now in the last slot on the board, but it’s splitting hairs at this point.
One of the weirdest teams in the NFL, the Bills look like they’re close to getting rookie Josh Allen back for the stretch run.
How about the Colts? This team is far better than their 5-5 record alludes to, especially after kicking the Titans’ ass. Those brutally close early season losses may end up not mattering much if Indianapolis keeps playing this well.
In their last five games, the Seahawks are 3-2 with last-minute losses to the Chargers and Rams. This may not be the juggernaut team they once were a few years back, but the Seahawks are competitive and right in the mix for a Wild Card spot.
Who would have thought the Texans would rattle off 7-straight wins? They’re in the driver’s seat in the AFC South and the best teams left on their schedule are the Colts and Eagles. They legitimately could finish their seasons at 13-3.
The Chargers would have been a half game out of first (technically 1.5 with their loss to the Chiefs) and the Kansas City Chiefs if they had not blown that game to the Broncos. Nevertheless, this team is one of the few actual Super Bowl contenders in the AFC.
Look, I’m not saying I am the leader of the Bears’ bandwagon, but I have been on board since the first week of the season. Chicago, thanks to that damn good defense, now sits firmly in the driver’s seat of the NFC North.
I can’t drop this team down more than a slot after how close that game was in Los Angeles. The only real issue you can pull from it is the fact that their defense is still a massive liability. Can they overcome it to win the Super Bowl?
Okay, see you next week.
