1. Ravens — Could be 5-0, getting run game going, Ed Reed just two weeks away.
2. Steelers — Big Ben will open up the offense.
3. Jets — About as complete a team as we’ve seen from Week 2 on.
4. Packers — Injuries starting to mount, but I have to put a team fourth, and I’m already struggling with these rankings in a season of extreme parity.
5. Saints – Darren Sharper and Reggie Bush will help turn some things around. But man, that’s a bad, bad loss.
6. Colts — Really struggled in wins over KC and Denver. They have some issues.
7. Titans — Dominating offenses at the line of scrimmage. CJ2K will be OK.
8. Falcons — If not for a run in OT against Pittsburgh in Week 1, they might be 5-0, too.
9. Patriots — Losing Randy Moss in a bye week won’t improve your ranking.
10. Giants — Write Tom Coughlin off at your own peril.
11. Chiefs — Defense not allowing any points … But can the offense do anything in the air?
12. Bears — Anytime you win on the road and your starting QB completes six passes and throws four picks, you’re living right.
13. Eagles — Kevin Kolb taking some steps, but Mike Vick back soon.
14. Texans — They are who we thought they were — the most erratic team in the league.
15. Redskins — Last two wins courtesy of defense and special teams. Offense still rough.
16. Bucs – Quietest 3-1 start in the league. Josh Freeman is growing up, rapidly.
17. Vikings — Brett Favre managing to become a distraction beyond the normal injury hoopla.
18. Dolphins – Good week to have a bye.
19. Chargers — A special teams disaster. These division losses could come back to bite them.
20. Bengals — Can’t imagine they don’t look long and hard at the 2011 QB draft class.
21. Cowboys — Digging themselves a fine hole.
22. Jaguars — Rebounding in a big way the last two weeks, but tough road ahead in that division.
23. Broncos — Struggle against more physical teams.
24. Raiders — Don’t look now, but Jason Campbell back under center and Raiders back in thick of AFC Least race.
25. Cardinals – Amazing turnaround in seven days. In Max Hall we trust.
26. Rams — We’re splitting hairs here with the NFC West teams. All have serious flaws.
27. Seahawks — Maybe Marshawn Lynch sparks their run game.
28. Lions — Put up 44 without Mathew Stafford and with Megatron doing very little. Good for them.
29. Browns — Losing Seneca Wallace would sting (never thought I’d write those words).
30. 49ers – I still they beat rest of their division head-to-head, but time is running out.
31. Panthers — Truly mind-bending how they couldn’t win despite Todd Collins’ display for the Bears.
32. Bills — Gonna have trouble putting any sort of winning streak together in 2010.
