Cleveland Browns

0-10

Last week: L, 19-7 vs. JAX
Last rank: 32nd

A winless season continues to look more and more possible.

The Giants played horribly but still beat the slumping Chiefs at home.

Indianapolis Colts

27

Denver has lost six straight, and now the Paxton Lynch watch is fully on.

26

Miami Dolphins

Last rank: 24th

The Dolphins are very, very lucky to have won four games.

25

New York Jets

4-6

Last week: BYE

New York comes off the bye with real hope of ending up in second place of the AFC East.

24

Arizona Cardinals

4-6

Last week: L, 31-21 at HOU
Last rank: 21st

If the Cardinals can’t beat Houston and Tom Savage, it’s not a good sign moving forward.

23

Green Bay Packers

5-5

Last week: L, 23-0 vs. BAL
Last rank: 20th

Green Bay was shut out for the first time at home since 2006. Not pretty.

22

Buffalo Bills

5-5

Last week: L, 54-24 at LAC
Last rank: 18th

The Bills are in total and complete free fall. Luckily, a trip to Arrowhead awaits.

21

Houston Texans

4-6

Last week: W, 31-21 vs. AZ
Last rank: 23rd

Houston finally got off the snide with a win over Blaine Gabbert and the Cardinals.

The Bengals stayed alive for another week with a win over the listless Broncos.

19

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

4-6

Last week: W, 30-20 at MIA

Tampa Bay has won two straight behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. Not the best look for Jameis Winston.

18

Oakland Raiders

4-6

Last week: L, 33-8 vs. NE
Last rank: 16th

Oakland’s defense is impossibly bad. Tough to make the playoffs with that.

17

Washington Redskins

4-6

Last week: L, 34-31 (OT) at NO
Last rank: 15th

Washington blew a 15-point lead and with that, turn out the lights.

16

Baltimore Ravens

5-5

Last week: W, 23-0 at GB
Last rank: 17th

The Ravens are the most likely team to get the AFC’s sixth seed with an easy schedule ahead.

15

Los Angeles Chargers

4-6

Last week: W, 54-24 vs. BUF
Last rank: 19th

The Chargers are an average team, but that might be enough to win the AFC West.

14

Dallas Cowboys

5-5

Last week: L, 37-9 vs. PHI
Last rank: 11th

After another ugly loss, the Cowboys are in a very tough spot.

13

Tennessee Titans

6-4

Last week: W, 40-17 at PIT
Last rank: 13th

The Titans aren’t ready to play with the big boys of the AFC.

12

Detroit Lions

6-4

Last week: W, 27-24 at CHI
Last rank: 14th

The Lions have needed two heart attack wins over the Browns and Bears. Not sure what to make of the Lions.

11

Kansas City Chiefs

6-4

Last week: L, 12-9 (OT) at NYG
Last rank: 7th

Kansas City would be lucky to make the playoffs at this point. Incredible how far the Chiefs have fallen.

10

Seattle Seahawks

6-4

Last week: L, 34-31 vs. ATL
Last rank: 10th

Right now, this doesn’t look like a playoff team.

9

Jacksonville Jaguars

7-3

Last week: W, 19-7 at CLE
Last rank: 12th

The Jaguars defense is great. The offense is another story altogether.

8

Atlanta Falcons

6-4

Last week: W, 34-31 at SEA
Last rank: 9th

Atlanta has to be feeling good after consecutive wins over contenders.

7

Carolina Panthers

7-3

Last week: BYE
Last rank: 8th

Nobody is talking about the Panthers, but they’re an interesting team to watch down the stretch.

6

Los Angeles Rams

7-3

Last week: L, 24-7 at MIN
Last rank: 3rd

Los Angeles is still a very good team, it just happened to lose to another one.

5

New Orleans Saints

8-2

Last week: W, 34-31 (OT) vs. WSH
Last rank: 6th

The Saints just continue to win, beating the Redskins to make it eight straight.

4

Minnesota Vikings

8-2

Last week: W, 24-7 vs. LAR
Last rank: 5th

Minnesota could absolutely be the first team to play at home in a Super Bowl.

3

Pittsburgh Steelers

8-2

Last week: W, 40-17 vs. TEN
Last rank: 4th

If Ben Roethlisberger finally figured things out on Thursday, the Steelers are the best team in football.

2

New England Patriots

8-2

Last week: W, 33-7 at OAK
Last rank: 2nd

The Patriots basically have a bye from now until the AFC title game.

1

Philadelphia Eagles

9-1

Last week: W, 37-9, at DAL
Last rank: 1st

At 9-1, the Eagles have all but wrapped up the NFC East before Thanksgiving.
