RK Team RECORD CHANGE HIGH/LOW COMMENTS
1

6-0 - 1/5
Denver has the No. 1 scoring offense, total offense and passing offense -- but also the worst passing defense, the 29th ranked total defense and the 24th ranked scoring defense. They are beatable.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
2

6-0 2 1/19
The Chiefs had 10 sacks on Sunday. They now have 31 on the season...four more than they had all of last year!
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
3

5-1 - 1/4
The Seahawks haven't lost at home since 2011, outscoring their opponents 337-128 in that span, but the Titans made it a little too close for comfort on Sunday.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
4

5-1 2 3/9
Bill Belichick is better than anyone at taking away an opponent's best weapon. Jimmy Graham finished with zero catches on Sunday. Zero.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
5

5-1 3 2/16
The Saints had a season-high 131 rushing yards and averaged five yards per carry, but I'm not sure Drew Brees on a naked bootleg was their best chance at icing the game.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
6

4-2 1 1/13
Eric Reid should be earning some early buzz for defensive rookie of the year. Every time I watch the 49ers defense he is making plays.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
7

4-2 2 4/15
The Colts have a chance to redeem themselves with a home game against the Broncos next week, but I think that makes for a better story than it does a reality.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
8

3-2 - 6/24
After going 44 consecutive games without a 100-yard rusher, the Packers have done it three times this season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
9

4-2 - 6/20
Reggie Bush had just one game last season in which he tallied more than 125 yards from scrimmage. He now has three in just six games this year.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
10

4-2 - 5/13
The Bengals earned their first road win of the season at Buffalo on Sunday, but it was an overtime dog fight.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
11

4-2 - 4/20
Martellus Bennett has quietly been one of the best pickups of the offseason. His 31 receptions in the six games this season are already two more than all of the Bears tight ends last season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
12

3-3 - 10/18
Dallas beat Washington despite being outgained by 220 yards and allowing 216 rushing yards. That isn't going to happen very often.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
13

3-3 - 5/25
The Ravens lost at home for just the fourth time in their last 30 games while Ray Rice posted his fourth game of the year with fewer than 40 rushing yards.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
14

3-2 1 10/25
Miami comes off the bye this week with back-to-back divisional games. They host the Bills this week and then travel to New England in Week 8.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
15

3-3 1 14/26
With a much-improved offensive line, I really thought Chris Johnson was going to have a resurgence this season. I was wrong. Very wrong.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
16

3-3 4 11/26
Ryan Mathews broke the 100-yard rushing mark for the first time since Week 14 of 2011.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
17

3-3 5 9/23
The Eagles have won back-to-back games for the first time this season and will host the Cowboys on Sunday. With a win, they will take control of the NFC East.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
18

3-3 1 17/31
Seriously, what was Brandon Weeden thinking with that under-handed floater?
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
19

3-3 1 12/30
I have said all along that the Jets would be lucky to make it to their bye week with a 3-6 record. There next three games are all against division leaders -- the Patriots, Bengals and Saints. I'm sticking to my prediction.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
20

2-4 4 4/32
You get your wish, Houston.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
21

3-3 2 9/29
The Cardinals snapped a two-game winning streak and Carson Palmer continued his streak of multi-interception games (four).
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
22

2-4 1 16/27
The Bills have four losses by an average of just 6.3 points. No one is going to want to play the Bills when they are healthy.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
23

1-4 6 13/30
Sunday was the Steelers' first game this season without a turnover, and, coincidentally, it was also there first game with a takeaway. Win the turnover battle, win the game.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
24

3-3 3 14/28
The Rams clawed their way back to .500 with a 38-point showing on Sunday -- the most points they have scored since putting up 41 in 2006.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
25

1-4 4 4/31
Nothing has come easy for Atlanta this season, but the next three opponents are a combined 5-11. This is a good stretch for the Falcons to get back to .500 before hosting Seattle in Week 10.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
26

2-3 2 2/28
The Panthers' two wins have come against teams that are a combined 1-10 on the season.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
27

1-4 3 10/30
I'd be surprised if it wasn't Josh Freeman behind center against the Giants this week. That way he can have a primer game before facing they Packers in Week 8.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
28

1-4 3 13/31
Washington had scored touchdowns on seven of 11 trips to the redzone entering the game but failed to score on any of their three trips on Sunday.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
29

2-4 3 25/32
The Raiders never reached the redzone on Sunday and had a season-high 11 penalties in the game.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
30

0-6 2 25/32
With a little more discipline, Justin Blackmon could be the next Anquan Boldin.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
31

0-6 1 15/31
The Giants have now had at least three turnovers in all six games this season. That's bad.
Team: Home | Stats | Fantasy | Schedule | Gear | Tickets
32

0-5 1 21/32
Tampa has lost 10 of their last 11 and are being frequented by the Center for Disease Control -- does it get any worse?
