1.Â Â Â Â Â Chicago Bears â€“ The Bears rolled again in week five.Â They hold the top spot with a bullet.
2.Â Â Â Â Â Philadelphia Eagles â€“ McNabb is quieting his critics, and the Eagles just sacked Bledsoe again.
3.Â Â Â Â Â Indianapolis Colts â€“ The Colts needed more late heroics from Manning to win.Â Maybe they took the Titans lightly, but they definitely enter the bye week with questions to answer.
4.Â Â Â Â Â Denver Broncos â€“ The Broncos have allowed just one touchdown in four games.Â Plummer will need to find his groove from last year to get Denver back to the AFC Championship game.
5.Â Â Â Â Â San Diego Chargers â€“ The Chargers might be the most complete team in the AFC right now.
6.Â Â Â Â Â Seattle Seahawks â€“ I hope the Seahawks spent the bye week figuring out how to get yards on the ground without Alexander.Â They get a test this week at St. Louis.
7.Â Â Â Â Â Baltimore Ravens â€“ The Ravens need to find ways to get more points on the board.Â With their defense, they donâ€™t need many.
8.Â Â Â Â Â Atlanta Falcons â€“ The Falcons have found some big plays in the passing game thus far.Â With their running game, that is bad news for the NFC.
9.Â Â Â Â Â New England Patriots â€“ The Pats are 4-1 and will apparently win the AFC East by default.Â After that, things will get much tougher.
- Cincinnati Bengals â€“ The Bengals have to find Chad Johnson more often.Â They also need better play on defense to take advantage of the Steelers slow start.Â
