1.1.Green Bay Packers7-0Shula, Buoniconti, Griese, Anderson and company may not be able to uncork the champagne if they don't lose to the Lions on Thanksgiving. If the'72 Dolphins celebrating the last undefeated losing with champagne wasn't an urban legend.
2.3.San Francisco 49ers6-1Gore topped 125 yards rushing and scored a TD for the 4th straight week. My streaking fantasy team thanks him.
3.5.Baltimore Ravens5-2Comeback from 21 point deficit was the biggest in franchise history.
4.6.Pittsburgh Steelers6-2LeBeau finally adapted to Brady spreading the field by playing more press coverage and matching up Taylor against slot receiver Welker.
5.2.New England Patriots5-2Secondary is in shambles.
6.7.New York Giants5-2Jacobs isn't making much of a case on the field that he deserves additional carries despite his lobbying efforts through the media.
7.8.Buffalo Bills5-2Finally won in Toronto on their 4th try.
8.10.Detriot Lions6-2Ended their 2 game losing streak with a vengeance in Denver.
9.9.Atlanta Falcons4-3Better not take the Colts lightly like the Giants did the Dolphins or the Ravens did the Cardinals after their byes.
10.4.New Orleans Saints5-3Held scoreless in the 1st half for the 1st time since 2007.
11.11.New York Jets4-3A mercifully quiet week for Gang Green in Jersey except for the surprise Fall snow storm.
12.13.Cincinnati Bengals5-2Already won more games than all of last season as Lewis became the franchise leader in coaching wins.
13.14.Houston Texans5-3Foster already holds the franchise record for 100 yard rushing games with 12.
14.19.Philadelphia Eagles3-4Reid remained undefeated after the bye.
15.15.Chicago Bears4-3Forte leads all non-quarterbacks in yards from scrimmage.
16.23.Kansas City Chiefs4-3Tenacious Haley has instilled mental toughness, something Turner has never accomplished.
17.17.Oakland Raiders4-3The Palmer era begins in earnest. Jackson´┐Żs job depends on his success.
18.18.Tampa Bay Buccaneers4-3Undefeated when rushing for over 100 yards, winless when not.
19.12.San Diego Chargers4-3What's wrong with Laserface? He has clearly taken a step backwards especially when compared to Super Bowl winning draft classmates Big Ben and Eli.
20.20.Tennessee Titans4-3Ringer nearly doubled Johnson's yardage total in the same number of carries.
21.16.Dallas Cowboys3-4The Ryan brothers need to shut up.
22.27.Minnesota Vikings2-6Season sack leader Allen has gotten to the QB in 10 straight games.
23.21.Carolina Panthers2-6Newton's 2393 passing yards trails only Breesus.
24.22.Cleveland Browns3-4Had no running game with Hillis inactive and Hardesty being forced to the sidelines in the 1st quarter after 2 carries.
25.24.Washington Redskins3-4Shanahan was shut out for the 1st time in his head coaching career.
26.25.Jacksonville Jaguars2-6Rank dead last in total offense and scoring.
27.30.St. Louis Rams1-6Jackson's 28th career 100 yard rushing game passed Faulk for 2nd in franchise history, 10 behind Dickerson.
28.26.Denver Broncos2-5Should Tebow be judged after a pair of starts? Probably not. Does he look like he has NFL QB skills? No, not at all.
29.28.Seattle Seahawks2-5Unlikely to get Luck(y). Barkley, Jones or Griffin would be a nice consolation prize.
30.29.Arizona Cardinals1-6Lost 4 of their 6 straight by 4 points or fewer.
31.31.Miami Dolphins0-7Still playing hard for Sparano, not that it matters.
32.32.Indianapolis Colts0-8Angerer's large league lead in tackles is based in part on the offenses failure to stay on the field.
