Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 2. New England Patriots 6-1 None of their 3 QBs have thrown an interception so far this season.
2. 1. Minnesota Vikings 5-1 The last unbeaten falls early this season.
3. 4. Dallas Cowboys 5-1 Dak will keep the job for at least a few more weeks after the bye with Romo not yet cleared to fully practice.
4. 6. Green Bay Packers 4-2 Rodgers set the franchise record for completions in a game (39) with the entire running back corps injured.
5. 3. Seattle Seahawks 4-1-1 Wilson's reluctance to run due to injuries has really affected the offense.
6. 8. Denver Broncos 5-2 Protected Siemian by running the ball with Anderson/Booker rushing for 190 yards combined and a TD each.
7. 11. Kansas City Chiefs 4-2 Reid celebrated his 300th game as a head coach (regular season and playoffs) with his 176th victory.
8. 12. Oakland Raiders 5-2 Del Rio won going away in his return to Jacksonville.
9. 13. Philadelphia Eagles 4-2 Overcame Wentz throwing for under 140 yards with a pair of interceptions and a lost fumble thanks in large part to Bradford also turning the ball over 3 times, his 1st 3 turnovers of the season.
10. 7. Atlanta Falcons 4-3 Last year's collapse after fast start has to be in the back of their minds after a pair of heartbreaking losses.
11. 5. Pittsburgh Steelers 4-3 Lost in Heinz Field for the 1st time in 357 days.
12. 9. Buffalo Bills 4-3 Blew an 11 point lead with 16 minutes remaining to end 4 game winning streak.
13. 16. New York Giants 4-3 Picked Keenum 4 times, the 1st returned for a score and the 2nd resulting in the game winning TD.
14. 17. Detriot Lions 4-3 Trailed in the 4th quarter of all of their wins.
15. 14. Arizona Cardinals 3-3-1 Deflated when Catanzaro hit the upright from 28 yards in OT and then elated when Hauschka shanked a 28 yarder with 11 seconds remaining to seal the tie.
16. 18. Cincinnati Bengals 3-4 Have beaten their in state rivals 4 straight times by a combined margin of 99 points.
17. 10. Washington Redskins 4-3 Head to London after trip to Detroit. Slightly different atmosphere.
18. 15. Houston Texans 4-3 That thud you heard on Monday night was Osweiler's return to Denver where he had 131 yards passing averaging an abysmal 3.2 yards per attempt. The only QB in league history with fewer yards in 40 or more attempts was current ESPN college football analyst and former TV Bachelor Palmer back in '03 for the Giants.
19. 20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3 Rodgers signed off the street 6 weeks ago after being released by the Bears became the 6th straight back to rush for over 100 yards against the 49ers.
20. 25. San Diego Chargers 3-4 Rallied from 17 points behind, 10 at halftime to win 1st road game of the season.
21. 27. Miami Dolphins 3-4 Ajayi joined Williams, Campbell and OJ (twice) as the only backs in the league to rush for 200 yards in consecutive games. Did Ajayi's sudden success cause the unexpected retirement of Foster?
22. 26. Indianapolis Colts 3-4 Luck remained undefeated against the Titans.
23. 22. New Orleans Saints 2-4 Couldn't overcome penalties and turnovers including a pick 6 and fumble in the red zone in Arrowhead.
24. 23. Tennessee Titans 3-4 Lost 15 of their last 16 against division rival Colts.
25. 24. Los Angeles Rams 3-4 Fisher still too stubborn to start/play Goff. Playing Keenum serves no purpose except to inflate fantasy stats of opposing defenses.
26. 29. New York Jets 2-5 Fitzpatrick is back after Geno lasted less than 2 quarters before tearing his ACL.
27. 19. Baltimore Ravens 3-4 Harbaugh has lost 4 straight regular season games for the 1st time in his career.
28. 28. Carolina Panthers 1-5 Can they regroup after bye?
29. 21. Jacksonville Jaguars 2-4 Haven't won yet this season in 3 tries in Jacksonville.
30. 30. Chicago Bears 1-6 Turned to Barkley after losing Hoyer to a broken arm. QB situation a bigger mess than any other team in the league including Browns.
31. 31. San Francisco 49ers 1-6 Opened the game with a pair of 1st quarter TDs and then seemed to flat out quit on both sides of the ball. Might as well give Ponder a chance, Kaepernick has proven he has no place in the league.
32. 32. Cleveland Browns 0-7 Rookie free agent Hogan became the 6th QB this season to take snaps for them after Kessler suffered a concussion.
