Last Updated:

Rank / Team / 2018 Record / The Skinny

1. Saints (13-2) — Could be long time until Marshon Lattimore struggles like that again

2. Rams (12-3) — More two-TE sets seemed to really help up front last week

3. Chiefs (11-4) — Defensive gameplan vs. Seattle was confusing at best

4. Bears (11-4) — Win at San Fran means they’ll go for it in Week 17

5. Chargers (11-4) — That Ravens loss really was massive with Chiefs losing

6. Patriots (10-5) — Tom Brady’s knee isn’t only issue, but earning bye would be big

7. Texans (10-5) — Deshaun Watson’s heroics buried by late collapse on defense

8. Ravens (9-6) — You have to completely redo your defensive gameplan for them

9. Seahawks (9-6) — Funny how quickly we’ve moved on from bad Week 15 loss

10. Cowboys (9-6) — Don’t need to play hard in Week 17, but Jerry says they will

11. Steelers (8-6-1) — Fake punt was worse than JuJu’s fumble, it turns out

12. Colts (9-6) — Remember: They were 1-5 with losses to Bengals and Jets

13. Vikings (8-6-1) — Dalvin Cook gets shot at redemption vs. Bears

14. Titans (9-6) — Likely have to win with ball-control offense in Week 17 showdown

15. Eagles (8-7) — Nick Foles has one of the strangest but strongest legacies with team

16. Browns (7-7-1) — Gunning for first over-.500 season in dozen years

17. Washington (7-8) — Swearinger exit a reminder this team has been mired discord for years

18. Falcons (6-9) — Can they rebound as contenders? Gotta load up on lines of scrimmage

19. Dolphins (7-8) — Some changes coming, but always feels like Ross makes wrong ones

20. Packers (6-8-1) — Don’t throw young offensive playmakers out with bathwater just yet

21. Bills (5-10) — Finishing with six victories honestly would be pretty impressive

22. Panthers (6-9) — Could be first team in 16-game era to start 6-2, lose eight straight

23. Buccaneers (5-10) — Easily overlooked, but Mike Evans has been tremendous amid losing

24. Broncos (6-9) — Absolutely brutal all-around performance with Joseph’s job on line

25. Giants (5-10) — Saquon’s late slide likely means Baker Mayfield is your OROY

26. Jaguars (5-10) — Doug Marrone looking likely to be back, but his staff could change

27. Lions (5-10) — We know the offense is broken, but how much of this is on Stafford?

28. Bengals (6-9) — A major teardown still feels unlikely even if it could be best remedy

29. 49ers (4-11) — Kyle Shanahan still getting them to play hard, but lots to improve

30. Jets (4-11) — A good coach will want to work with Darnold, but this roster stinks

31. Raiders (4-11) — Dwayne Harris gives Raider Nation a terrific sendoff in Black Hole

32. Cardinals (3-12) — Odds-on favorite to earn top pick in the draft … Nick Bosa?
