Broncos: The overtime loss to the Bears has to be viewed as a fluke, based on the fact the Broncos have beaten the Steelers, Titans, and Bills.
Vikings: Is it possible this team is finally "getting it"? It is hard to ignore the 3 wins in the last 4 weeks, especially when two of them are over the Giants and the Chargers, with their only loss coming to a very good Packers team.
Giants: After the crushing defeat to the Vikings, you have to give the Giants a serious re-evaluation. This team has been riding an easy schedule most of the year.
Titans: A blowout loss to the Bengals shows the Titans are doing it with smoke and mirrors.
Chiefs: Don't read too much into their loss to the Raiders. They split the series.
Panthers: A split series with the Saints doesn't mean much.
49ers: The 49ers beat the Cardinals twice this year. Frankly, as in "Gore", they looked impressive doing it too. With Gore at the top of his game, this is an average, almost good, team. Without him, they are bad.
Cardinals: The 49ers let the Cards stay in last week's game longer than they should have.
Bengals: A solid win over the Titans shows this team can still compete with the average teams.
Raiders: A couple more wins like the one over the Chiefs and we might have to take the Raiders for real.
