2. Indianapolis Colts (5-2)
2. Indianapolis Colts (5-2)
With wins over Denver, Seattle and San Francisco, the Colts have the best resume in football. Reggie Wayne, however, will be missed – considerably. (Photo by Dilip Vishwanat/Getty Images)
3. Denver Broncos (6-1)
3. Denver Broncos (6-1)
It was by no means Peyton’s best game, but the defense, special teams and offensive line certainly didn’t do him any favors. These two teams will likely meet again – and if they do, it’ll be in Denver. (Photo by Andy Lyons/Getty Images)
4. San Francisco 49ers (5-2)

That’s four straight wins, all by double digits. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
5. Seattle Seahawks (6-1)
5. Seattle Seahawks (6-1)

6. New Orleans Saints (5-1)
6. New Orleans Saints (5-1)
The Saints will have had two weeks to prepare for a home game against Buffalo. If you’re in a pick-em league, two words: confidence points. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)
7. Cincinnati Bengals (5-2)
7. Cincinnati Bengals (5-2)
Another game-winning field goal on the road from Mike Nugent, this time against a quality opponent. Perhaps the Bengals have matured. (Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images)

Three straight wins with divisional games against Minnesota and Chicago up next. (Photo by Brian Kersey/Getty Images)
9. New England Patriots (5-2)
9. New England Patriots (5-2)
The unsportsmanlike penalty may have been questionable, but New England didn’t score a touchdown after halftime. In fact, Tom Brady has been held without a touchdown in two of his last three games – this after recording at least one touchdown in 52 straight. (Photo by Ron Antonelli/Getty Images)

10. Dallas Cowboys (4-3)
The offense was surprisingly lackluster against the Eagles, but the defense stepped up without DeMarcus Ware. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)

11. Chicago Bears (4-3)
11. Chicago Bears (4-3)
The Bears limp into the bye – literally, in Jay Cutler’s case – having lost three of four. Green Bay, Detroit and Baltimore await. Good luck, Josh McCown. Good luck. (Photo by Patrick Smith/Getty Images)
12. Detroit Lions (4-3)
12. Detroit Lions (4-3)
Calvin Johnson can’t play much better, but lapses on defense and special teams doomed Detroit. (Photo by Jason Miller/Getty Images)
13. San Diego Chargers (4-3)

Ryan Matthews averaged 46.8 rushing yards through five games; he’s topped the 100-yard mark in each of his last two – both wins. (Photo by Sam Greenwood/Getty Images)

That’s three straight losses with a pair of 5-2 teams – New England and Cincinnati – up next. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)
16. Baltimore Ravens (3-4)
16. Baltimore Ravens (3-4)
The Ravens have lost three of four, as Ray Rice (2.8 yards per carry) and the offensive line continue to disappoint. (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)
17. Carolina Panthers (3-3)
17. Carolina Panthers (3-3)
In his last two games, Cam Newton is 35-of-43 (.814) with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He’s also rushed for 56 yards and a score. (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)
18. Cleveland Browns (3-4)
18. Cleveland Browns (3-4)
This simply isn’t the same team with Brandon Weeden at quarterback. (Photo by Brian Kersey/Getty Images)

19. Philadelphia Eagles (3-4)
Matt Barkley (three fourth-quarter interceptions) showed why he’s a third-string quarterback. (Photo by Rich Schultz /Getty Images)
20. Washington Redskins (2-4)
20. Washington Redskins (2-4)
Not a great win, but a win. RG3 (11 carries, 84 yards) looks much more like himself. (Photo by Patrick McDermott/Getty Images)
21. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4)
21. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4)
They’re not done yet, especially since two of their next three are against Oakland and Buffalo. (Photo by Vincent Pugliese/Getty Images)
22. St. Louis Rams (3-4)
22. St. Louis Rams (3-4)
You can’t help but feel bad for Sam Bradford (torn ACL), who may never fulfill the promise he possessed coming out of Oklahoma. (Photo by Grant Halverson/Getty Images)
23. Houston Texans (3-4)
23. Houston Texans (3-4)
Case Keenum’s first start went about as well as possible – minus the win. It was an encouraging performance for a franchise looking for positives. (Photo by Peter Aiken/Getty Images)
24. Oakland Raiders (2-4)
24. Oakland Raiders (2-4)
Oakland emerges from the bye with home games against Pittsburgh and Philadelphia. The Raiders are 2-1 at home, but one of those wins came against Jacksonville. (Photo by Kyle Rivas/Getty Images)

25. Atlanta Falcons (2-4)
Harry Douglas went over 100 yards for the first time since an overtime loss to the Saints in November 2011. (Photo by Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
26. Arizona Cardinals (3-4)
26. Arizona Cardinals (3-4)
Two interceptions, seven sacks allowed and 30 rushing yards. You ain’t beating any NFL team with those numbers, much less Seattle. (Photo by Norm Hall/Getty Images)
27. Tennessee Titans (3-4)

That’s three straight losses – albeit to teams that are a combined 18-3. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
28. Buffalo Bills (3-4)
28. Buffalo Bills (3-4)
Points scored by Buffalo this season: 21, 24, 20, 23, 24, 24, 23. I’ll say this for the Bills: They know what they’re going to get offensively. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)
29. New York Giants (1-6)
29. New York Giants (1-6)
I’m still not convinced the Giants should get credit for that win. (Photo by Al Bello/Getty Images)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-5)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-5)
Until the Vikings get a quarterback, they’ll continue to waste Adrian Peterson. (Photo by Elsa/Getty Images)
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-6)
