The NFL has a logjam of teams considered smack dab in the middle of the league. Too many teams with a plethora of question marks.
Very few teams have separated themselves from the rest and that trend looks like it will continue for quite awhile this season.
1. Philadelphia Eagles (6-0)
The Eagles have forced three or more turnovers in three games this season. They’ve forced at least one turnover in every game.
2. Buffalo Bills (5-1)
Buffalo is now ranked first in points allowed and second in total points scored. They just defeated the one team everyone else is picking to win the AFC.
3. Minnesota Vikings (5-1)
Minnesota’s streak of forcing a turnover has now reached seven games dating back to last season. They’ve forced 12 total turnovers during that streak.
4. Kansas City Chiefs (4-2)
In Kansas City’s two losses, they’ve turned the ball over twice in both contests (try saying that fast five times). They have a total of two turnovers in their four wins.
5. New York Giants (5-1)
The Giants have pushed their winning streak to three games. Their next three opponents are Jacksonville, Seattle and then Houston after their bye week. That kind of line up deserves about a half dozen laughing emojis.
6. Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)
The Chargers will try to extend their win streak to four when they host Seattle on Sunday.
7. Dallas Cowboys (4-2)
Dallas had more turnovers on Sunday than they’ve had all season. Now everybody wants to know when Dak Prescott is coming back.
8. New York Jets (4-2)
The Jets are probably the hottest team in the NFL right now. They’ve won three in a row, outscoring their opponents 91- 47 during that stretch.
9. Los Angeles Rams (3-3)
The Rams snapped a two game losing streak heading into their bye week.
10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-3)
We might’ve reached a point in time where Tom Brady’s play is starting to resemble his age.
11. Baltimore Ravens (3-3)
The Ravens aren’t losing games by a lot of points, but they have a tendency to give up the lead late in games.
12. Cincinnati Bengals (3-3)
The Bengals have won three out if their last four games. They’re averaging 25.2 points during that stretch.
13. Green Bay Packers (3-3)
If Green Bay would’ve drafted a quarterback better than Jordan Love, there would probably be a quarterback controversy right now.
14. San Francisco 49ers (3-3)
The 49ers have allowed 122.6 rushing yards per game in their three losses this season. They’ve allowed a total of 157 yards in their three wins.
15. Miami Dolphins (3-3)
The Dolphins are now locked in a weird quarterback controversy. It’s a battle between all three of their quarterbacks and the injury list.
16. Tennessee Titans (3-2)
The Titans come off their bye week to face the Colts and then a road trip to Houston.
17. New England Patriots (3-3)
It feels like Bailey Zappe has taken the baton from Cooper Rush as the quarterback off the bench that could take the starter job permanently. In this case it seems like much more of a possibility.
18. Seattle Seahawks (3-3)
Seattle has won two out of their last three games, scoring a total of 99 points during that stretch.
19. Atlanta Falcons (3-3)
The Falcons are ranked third in rushing yards, averaging 4.9 yards per carry. They’ve rushed for at least 150 yards in five out of their six games this season.
20. Indianapolis Colts (3-2-1)
Matt Ryan is averaging 294.2 passing yards per game. He’s led the team to four fourth quarter comebacks and three game winning drives.
21. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-4)
Kenny Pickett is in concussion protocol, but could start against the Dolphins.
22. Cleveland Browns (2-4)
Cleveland is ranked first in rushing yards and 23rd in passing yards. That could be a major reason for their record.
23. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-4)
The Jaguars scored just as much this week (27) as they did in the previous two weeks combined. They’ve pushed their losing streak to three games.
24. Denver Broncos (2-4)
Denver has played four prime time games this season. They’re 1-3 in those games.
25. New Orleans Saints (2-4)
The good news is the Saints didn’t turn the ball over for the first time all season. The bad news is they’ve lost four out of five games.
26. Arizona Cardinals (2-4)
Arizona has now lost two in a row, scoring a total of 26 points. They’re ranked 22nd in total points scored.
27. Washington Commanders (2-4)
Washington snapped a four games losing streak, but boy did they really try to extend it to five games.
28. Chicago Bears (2-4)
Chicago has been outscored 61-42 in their last three games. They have six turnovers during that stretch.
29. Detroit Lions (1-4)
Detroit is still top three in scoring. This is amazing considering they’ve only played five games and they scored zero points in one of those games.
30. Houston Texans (1-3-1)
After their bye week, the Texans will face the only other team in the AFC with one win on the season.
31. Las Vegas Raiders (1-4)
I was ready to come in here and talk about another Raiders loss, but remarkably they didn’t lose. They were on a bye week.
32. Carolina Panthers (1-5)
The Panthers traded away Robbie Anderson to the Arizona Cardinals. Is this the beginning a fire sale in Carolina?
