November 02, 2016 by Steel Haven

Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 1. New England Patriots 7-1 Haven't been swept by a divisional foe in any season since realignment in '02.
2. 3. Dallas Cowboys 6-1 Dak overcame early game struggles to lead his team to 16 unanswered 4th quarter and OT points.
3. 6. Denver Broncos 6-2 Travel to Oakland for divisional showdown between 6 win teams.
4. 7. Kansas City Chiefs 5-2 Prevailed in Indy despite Smith, Ware both suffering concussions and Charles not dressing after another setback.
5. 8. Oakland Raiders 6-2 Set a new single game league record with 24 penalties. On a more positive note Carr's 513 passing yards set the franchise's single game record.
6. 10. Atlanta Falcons 5-3 Ryan has led the most 4th quarter comebacks (25) of any QB since he entered the league in '08.
7. 2. Minnesota Vikings 5-2 Bradford got pummeled in Soldier Field.
8. 4. Green Bay Packers 4-3 Came up 1 point short of overcoming a myriad of offensive skill position injuries with Allison, Davis and Janis all scoring their 1st career TDs.
9. 5. Seattle Seahawks 4-2-1 Wilson was held scoreless for a 3rd straight week. Graham had a disappointing return to the Big Easy with only 34 yards on 3 receptions.
10. 9. Philadelphia Eagles 4-3 Blew 10 point 4th quarter lead to lose in the Jerry Dome. Still not letting Wentz throw the ball downfield.
11. 11. Pittsburgh Steelers 4-3 Will Roethlisberger be able to return after the bye? All signs are currently positive.
12. 18. Houston Texans 5-3 Remain undefeated at home, winless on the road.
13. 13. New York Giants 4-3 Come off the bye with entire division still over .500.
14. 12. Buffalo Bills 4-4 Found out what they already knew. Playing the Pats with Brady was different than playing them with Brissett.
15. 23. New Orleans Saints 3-4 Brees extended his league record of 58 consecutive home games with a TD pass.
16. 14. Detroit Lions 4-4 Their 3 game winning streak came to an end in Houston.
17. 16. Cincinnati Bengals 3-4-1 Missed extra point by Nugent led to first OT, tie ever in London.
18. 17. Washington Redskins 4-3-1 Hopkins sliced a 34 yard FG with just over 2 minutes left in OT. Did nothing when given another chance thanks to a Dalton fumble near mid-field with 1:11 remaining.
19. 15. Arizona Cardinals 3-4-1 Return to Charlotte after last season's NFC Championship debacle didn't go well.
20. 24. Tennessee Titans 4-4 Undefeated in 3 tries at home versus the Jags in the last 3 years, 1-17 against everyone else with the winless Browns this season providing the only other victory by 2 points.
21. 21. Miami Dolphins 3-4 Ajayo coming off a pair of 200 yard rushing days couldn't have been too excited about the timing of the bye.
22. 20. San Diego Chargers 3-5 Rivers was hit 17 times, sacked 4 times and threw 3 interceptions in Denver.
23. 28. Carolina Panthers 2-5 Sacked Palmer 8 times after entering the game with only 12 sacks all season.
24. 26. New York Jets 3-5 Before Sunday in Cleveland had never come back to win from a 13 point (or more) halftime deficit in franchise history.
25. 25. Los Angeles Rams 3-4 Did anyone in LA notice they didn't play last week? Probably not.
26. 19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-4 Short work week means they must quickly forget about failures to take advantage of Janikowski misses at the end of regulation and in OT.
27. 27. Baltimore Ravens 3-4 Come off the bye with 1st place in the AFC North on the line against the visiting Steelers.
28. 22. Indianapolis Colts 3-5 Physical beating seems to be taking a toll on Luck at the halfway point of the season.
29. 30. Chicago Bears 2-6 Howard is the 1st player in franchise history under the age of 22 to gain over 200 yards from scrimmage in a game.
30. 29. Jacksonville Jaguars 2-5 Defense flat out quit on Thursday night. Bradley should have been fired at halftime. Instead fired offensive coordinator Olson.
31. 31. San Francisco 49ers 1-6 Made it through a week without losing, of course were on a bye.
32. 32. Cleveland Browns 0-8 Wonder how surprised, depressed Collins was to learn on Monday morning that he had been traded from the best team in the league to the worst.
