October 30, 2013 by Steel Haven

Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 1. Seattle Seahawks 7-1 Offensive line woes exposed on Monday night by the Rams.
2. 2. Denver Broncos 7-1 Manning restored balance to the universe with second half offensive explosion against the Redskins.
3. 3. Kansas City Chiefs 8-0 Reid has opened a season with 8 straight wins for the first time in his head coaching career.
4. 4. San Francisco 49ers 6-2 A bye after playing the Jaguars, like getting 2 weeks off in a row.
5. 5. Cincinnati Bengals 6-2 Dalton appears to be taking the next step.
6. 6. Indianapolis Colts 5-2 Can all but end the season for the Texans this week in Houston.
7. 7. New Orleans Saints 6-1 Hellish finish in Foxboro still the only thing keeping them from being undefeated.
8. 8. Green Bay Packers 5-2 Rodgers just keeps on keepin' on despite injury riddled receiver corps.
9. 9. New England Patriots 6-2 Haven't lost back-to-back division games in 7 years.
10. 11. Detriot Lions 5-3 Megatron’s 329 receiving yards were the second most ever in a single game trailing only Flipper Anderson's 336. He joins Bambi Allworth as the only players in league history with 5 career games of 200 or more yards receiving.
11. 13. Carolina Panthers 4-3 Over .500 for the first time since 2008, a string of 70 games.
12. 12. San Diego Chargers 4-3 Had an extra week to prepare for trip East to play a winnable game against the Redskins (or should I say Bravehearts).
13. 10. Dallas Cowboys 4-4 Blew a double digit lead for the third time this season.
14. 14. Chicago Bears 4-3 Facing the Packers sans Cutler doesn't look promising even with an extra week to prepare.
15. 22. Arizona Cardinals 4-4 Not sure how Arians gets them to win games.
16. 18. Baltimore Ravens 3-4 Find themselves falling farther-and-farther behind the Bengals.
17. 17. New York Jets 4-4 Lost by 40 in Cincinnati a week after beating the Patriots. Jekyll and Hyde indeed.
18. 21. Tennessee Titans 3-4 Locker had an extra week to try to get back to his pre-injury form.
19. 26. Oakland Raiders 3-4 Won coming off the bye for the first time in 10 years.
20. 19. Buffalo Bills 3-5 Schedule makers doing them no favors with the Chiefs up next after their trip to New Orleans.
21. 20. Miami Dolphins 3-4 Collapsed after being spotted a 14 point lead in Foxboro.
22. 29. New York Giants 2-6 Only 2 games behind thanks in large part to the Cowboys inability to put games away.
23. 15. Atlanta Falcons 2-5 Ryan struggled mightily without Jones and White.
24. 23. Washington Redskins 2-5 Allowed 35 unanswered points after taking a 14 point lead.
25. 24. St. Louis Rams 3-5 Fight hard for Fisher, have no offense without Bradford.
26. 16. Pittsburgh Steelers 2-5 Let down hard by special teams in Oakland.
27. 27. Houston Texans 2-5 Can Keenum save their season?
28. 25. Philadelphia Eagles 3-5 Only a special teams gaffe by the Giants kept Kelly from being shut out for the first time in his college and pro head coaching career.
29. 28. Cleveland Browns 3-5 Campbell was the 20th different QB to start a game since the advent of the franchise version 2.0 in 1999.
30. 30. Minnesota Vikings 1-6 Return to Ponder had predictable result.
31. 31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-7 Schiano somewhat surprisingly survived Thursday night prime time debacle, not that a mid-season coaching change would really make any difference.
32. 32. Jacksonville Jaguars 0-8 Guaranteed not to lose this week thanks to the bye.
