The Ravens could have clinched the division with a win on Sunday, but now they are starting over with a brand-new offensive coordinator. This is a big gamble, but one they are obviously willing to take.
The Redskins are now over .500 for the first time since winning their Week 1 game against New Orleans. With a healthy RG3, the Redskins are very capable of winning out against the Browns,
The Bears outgained the
Vikings by 190 yards, but
Jay Cutler's two interceptions led to their fourth loss in five games.
13 Cowboys 7-6 +3
The Cowboys are now one game above .500 and beat their first team that entered the game with a winning record on Sunday, but I'm not sure they can sustain it through the final three games. Losing
Dez Bryant for the season would be detrimental.
14 Vikings 7-6 +5
Adrian Peterson had a career-high 31 carries on Sunday, but I'm not sure the Vikings can continue to win with
Christian Ponder playing this way. Every time he drops back you just assume he is going to make some type of mistake.
15 Bengals 7-6 -6
The Bengals missed a golden opportunity to close the gap on the Ravens and the
Steelers as they blew a nine-point lead with 6:36 remaining in the game.
16 Steelers 7-6 -5
The Steelers' injuries have held them back all season long, but now you finally get the feeling they are going to keep them out of the playoffs.
17 Rams 6-6-1
The Rams won their third in a row on Sunday with a 14-play, 84-yard touchdown drive that lasted 4:07 and left just 48 seconds on the clock. It was
Sam Bradford's third fourth-quarter comeback of the season.
After winning four straight, the
Bucs have now lost three in a row but still appear to be a team right on the verge of breaking out. If they can solidify the defensive secondary, this team will be competing for championships very soon.
Drew Brees' 18 interceptions are now tied for the league lead with
Andrew Luck. This team needs Sean Payton.
20 Browns 5-8
Trent Richardson's two touchdowns on Sunday put him in a tie with Jim Brown for the franchise rookie record for touchdowns in a season with nine. He needs just 74 more yards to pass Brown for the franchise rookie record for rushing yards in a season.
21 Chargers 5-8 +3
The Chargers recorded their first-ever win against the Steelers in Pittsburgh on Sunday. They are now 1-14 in the Steel City.
22 Dolphins 5-8 -1
Ryan Tannehill has gone back-to-back games without throwing an interception, but his 17-of-33 passing for 150 yards is far from the explosive offense you need to have to compete in this league.
23 Lions 4-9 -1
The Lions had more first downs, more yards, held the ball longer and converted a better third-down percentage than the Packers on Sunday but still lost.
24 Jets 6-7 +1
The Jets attempted 42 rushes against the
Jaguars and are now 6-1 in games this season in which they have 30 or more rushing attempts.
25 Panthers 4-9 +6
Cam Newton has accounted for 11 touchdowns in his last four games without throwing a single interception.
26 Eagles 4-9 +4
Nick Foles earned his first career win and is putting forth a good argument that he could be the quarterback of the future of this team. Then again ... the Bucs have made a lot of quarterbacks look good this season.
27 Bills 5-8 -4
It's a double whammy for Chan Gailey. He gets the criticism for being the team's head coach and then gets double the criticism for being the offensive coordinator.
28 Titans 4-9 -1
The Titans have yet to win a divisional game this season and with the loss on Sunday, they have been officially eliminated from the playoffs.
29 Cardinals 4-9 -3
I'm not so sure Ken Whisenhunt was kidding when he asked that reporter if he could play quarterback.
30 Jaguars 2-11 -2
For the second consecutive game, the Jaguars were below 15 percent on third-down conversions. They were just two of 16 on Sunday.
