4. Seattle Seahawks (8-1)
4. Seattle Seahawks (8-1)
How was Seattle losing 21-0 to winless Tampa Bay at home? Even crazier, how did Seattle manage to come back? Whatever the answers, Russell Wilson (12-0) remains unblemished at home. (Photo by Otto Greule Jr/Getty Images)

6. New England Patriots (7-2)
A 24-24 tie midway through the third quarter quickly became a 55-31 route. Rob Gronkowski (nine catches, 143 yards and a touchdown) looks like his old self. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)
7. New Orleans Saints (6-2)
7. New Orleans Saints (6-2)
Drew Brees’ win/loss splits are striking: a 70.6 completion percentage, 17 touchdowns and four interceptions in six wins; 54.0 completion percentage, four touchdowns and three interceptions in two losses. (Photo by Ron Antonelli/Getty Images)
8. Cincinnati Bengals (6-3)
8. Cincinnati Bengals (6-3)
Four turnovers, including a pick-six, and the game-ending sack for a safety. Unacceptable performance by Andy Dalton. Even worse, Geno Atkins (knee) is out for the year. Ouch. (Photo by Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images)
9. Detroit Lions (5-3)
9. Detroit Lions (5-3)
The upcoming schedule – at Chicago, at Pittsburgh and against Tampa Bay – isn’t easy, but it’s manageable. Anything less than taking two of three would be a disappointment. (Photo by Gregory Shamus/Getty Images)
10. Chicago Bears (5-3)
10. Chicago Bears (5-3)
The Bears won at Lambeau for the first time since 2007. Yes, the Packers didn’t have Aaron Rodgers for virtually the entire game, but the Bears didn’t have Jay Cutler, either. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)
11. Green Bay Packers (5-3)
11. Green Bay Packers (5-3)
It was a valiant effort, but too many injuries to too many important players has taken its toll. Now the question is, how long will Aaron Rodgers be out? (Photo by Mike McGinnis/Getty Images)
12. Dallas Cowboys (5-4)
12. Dallas Cowboys (5-4)
A win is a win, but the Cowboys called passing plays on 87 percent of their snaps – the highest one-game split in the league this season. Why? (Photo by Jamie Squire/Getty Images)
13. Carolina Panthers (5-3)
13. Carolina Panthers (5-3)
Carolina has won four straight, scoring between 30 and 35 points and allowing between 10 and 15 points in each of the four games. Impressive, yes. But each win came against teams with losing records. Let’s see how the Panthers fare this Sunday in San Francisco. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)
14. New York Jets (5-4)
14. New York Jets (5-4)
The Jets have alternated wins and losses for the first nine weeks of their season, tying the 2005 Patriots for the longest such streak in league history. This record, however, is one the Jets don’t want to break. They next play at Buffalo on Nov. 17. (Photo by Ron Antonelli/Getty Images)
15. San Diego Chargers (4-4)
15. San Diego Chargers (4-4)
With Denver looming, a win over the Redskins is something the Chargers desperately needed. It’s also something they didn’t get. (Photo by Rob Carr/Getty Images)

22. Oakland Raiders (3-5)
22. Oakland Raiders (3-5)
Oakland became the first team to allow two receivers (DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper) to top 130 yards in a game since Green Bay in 2004, when the Packers gave up 161 and 156, respectively, to . . . the Eagles’ Terrell Owens and Brian Westbrook. (Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images)

25. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-6)
25. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-6)
Three Big Ben turnovers sullied a 400-yard, four-touchdown day. Then again, where was the defense? The 55 points allowed to the Patriots were the most in franchise history. (Photo by Jared Wickerham/Getty Images)

29. Buffalo Bills (3-6)
29. Buffalo Bills (3-6)
Buffalo outgained Kansas City 470-210, but you can’t turn the ball over three times. And if you do, you can’t allow two of them to be returned for touchdowns. Game. Over. (Photo by Rick Stewart/Getty Images)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-7)
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-7)
The Vikings lost in the final minute for the third time this season. That’s the difference between 4-3 and 1-7. (Photo by Wesley Hitt/Getty Images)
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-8)
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-8)
The Bucs ran the ball on 65 percent of their plays through three quarters against Seattle – and it worked, as they led 24-14. In the fourth quarter and overtime, however, they ran the ball on just 25 percent of their plays. Yeah, that didn’t work as well. Tampa Bay is 0-8 for the first time since 1985.
