|Complete NFL Team Rankings through Week 4|
1. Seattle Seahawks
A gutsy road win in Houston keeps Seattle unbeaten.
2. Denver Broncos
Peyton & Co. looked sharp against Philadelphia - but who doesn't? Denver has benefited from a soft schedule, but we believe they are in the conversation for best in the league.
3. New England Patriots
7th LAST WEEK
Tom Brady has made everyone forget that he's throwing to a bunch of backups. The running backs look all-pro. New England is scary.
4. New Orleans Saints
5th LAST WEEK
New Orleans told Miami: "You're not ready yet." New Orleans is ready.
5. Miami Dolphins
6th LAST WEEK
No shame in losing to the Saints at home. Miami should bounce back.
6. Chicago Bears
3rd LAST WEEK
Cutler remains the bottleneck on a promising Bears team. He won't turn the ball over four times every week, but he's always struggled with ball security.
7. Cincinnati Bengals
4th LAST WEEK
After a loss to the Browns we need to re-evaluate Andy Dalton. Cleveland has stout run defense, but there should have been more room for Andy and A.J. Green to work.
8. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts continue to impress after administering a beatdown to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
9. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons aren't supposed to lose in the Georgia dome. This team will have to find some answers on defense if they want to keep pace with the Saints.
10. Detroit Lions
17th LAST WEEK
The defense responded forcing four Jay Cutler turnovers. Cutler turnovers have an exchange rate of 2:1 for your average NFL QB. Still, the defense played well and Reggie and Calvin looked sharp.
11. Kansas City Chiefs
10th LAST WEEK
Same story in Kansas City. The defense looks good. We doubt the offense will keep up against a top 10 team.
12. Dallas Cowboys
11th LAST WEEK
Dallas fielded a defense last week against the Chargers, but that's about it. They weren't able to pressure Rivers and he found just about everyone open downfield. Dallas will have to play pass defense if they want to compete in the NFL.
13. San Francisco 49ers
12th LAST WEEK
A bounce back win against the Rams doesn't say much. The Rams are incredibly weak and we wouldn't be surprised to see Jacksonville steal a game from them this week.
14. Tennessee Titans
18th LAST WEEK
A dominating performance at home against the Jets sends this team up a few places. Hopefully Locker will come back soon and play in Week 9 after the Titans bye.\
15. San Diego Chargers
20th LAST WEEK
The Chargers offense came to play as Phillip Rivers carved up the Cowboy defense. This team still has questions on defense, but strong offensive play can compensate for a weak defense.
16. Houston Texans
14th LAST WEEK
Q: Will they ever get it done with Matt Schaub?
17. Green Bay Packers
15th LAST WEEK
18. Buffalo Bills
19th LAST Week
The Bills rebounded at home in a big way against the Ravens. Buffalo will face stiff competition in Thursday's matchup against the Browns.
19. Cleveland Browns
25th LAST WEEK
Hoyer looks like the real deal. Cleveland is playing stout run defense. They haven't allowed more than 60 yards on the ground to any running back not names Adrian Peterson (88 Yards 1 TD).
20. Carolina Panthers
21st LAST WEEK
21. Baltimore Ravens
13th LAST WEEK
Joe Flacco is making everyone forget he won the Superbowl last season. Five interceptions against a Bills defense that had four in-actives is inexcusable. Ray Rice and Benard Pierce need to step up.
22. New York Jets
16th LAST WEEK
The Jets couldn't get it done in Tennessee. Geno took a step backwards this week with four turnovers. The two interceptions are excusable, but the two fumbles are not.
23. Philadelphia Eagles
22nd LAST WEEK
Chip Kelly said he wanted to play the Broncos in a parking lot. Chip shouldn't have said anything about playing the Broncos other than, "Take it easy on us." The Eagles defense is pathetic. The offense is a gimmick at best.
24. St. Louis Rams
23rd LAST WEEK
The Rams find themselves in the non-competitive-team conversation. They seem to lack any direction on offense and they can't stop the run. That's a rare combination of problems that usually spells defeat if they face a team that has anything close to a running game.
25th LAST WEEK
Washington picked up their first win against Oakland which should make this bye-week more enjoyable. Even at 1-3, the NFC East is still anyone's division to win.
26. New York Giants
24th LAST WEEK
The Giants are terrible. In other news, David Wilson should get more touches this week.
Impressive defense or inept offense? It's hard to gauge a team's talent after a win against Tampa, but they did limit Doug Martin which is a good sign. Palmer looked confused on Sunday.
28. Minnesota Vikings
Surprise Surprise, Matt Cassel looks better than Christian Ponder. Not sure why Cassel doesn't start every week, Ponder has proven he's not capable. Adrian Peterson finally got it going in London.
29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Another routine loss for Tampa. This team has an incredible defense, but the offense can't move the ball. Glennon's interception from his own 11 yard line did Tampa no favors.
30. Oakland Raiders
This was game Oakland could've won. Matt Flynn was demoted to third string after his performance in relief of Terrelle Pryor.
31. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Vikings offense surprised Pittsburgh in London. That shouldn't happen.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars are still playing like indoor cats.
