1. Atlanta Falcons
The Falcons easily ran their win streak to seven against Carolina. They will finish the year 6-2 on the road this season if they can win in Seattle.
2. New England Patriots
The Pats are taking no prisoners as they head toward home-field advantage in the AFC.
3. New Orleans Saints
The Champs have two huge road trips coming up in Baltimore and Atlanta.
4. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers last true regular-season test happens this week against the Jets.
5. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles can all but wrap up the division with a win at the Giants this week. The Birds are averaging just less than 34 points per game in their last six.
6. Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens got a road win, and you never have to apologize for winning road games. This team sure has something less than a championship look about it though.
7. New York Giants
The Eagles come to town Sunday with the division on the line. There are no excuses for the G-men.
8. Chicago Bears
It’s hard to fault the Bears too much with the way the Pats are playing, but a little more was expected with it being in Chicago.
9. Green Bay Packers
The Lions really set the Packers playoff hopes back on Sunday. The Pack is on the outside looking in with three difficult games left to play.
10. New York Jets
The tailspin is in full effect, and with trips to Pittsburgh and Chicago coming up, Gang Green can only hope to enter week sixteen against the Bills with a chance for the postseason.
