1. Giants (last wk:3) — Some other teams are on their heels but right now, you have to say the Giants are #1, more of a default #1 but #1 nonetheless.
2. Cowboys (last wk:1) — A loss to a fellow NFC East team does not carry the same weight as a loss to any other team in any other division.
3. Titans (last wk: 5) — Yes the combined record of the teams they have played is 3-12 but they’re 4-0 and that’s pretty damn impressive when you consider most people would be hard pressed to name 5 players on their roster not named Young or Collins.
4. Bills (last wk: 6) — Yes the combined record of the teams they have played is 4-11 but they’re 4-0 and that’s pretty damn impressive when you consider most people would be hard pressed to name 5 players on their roster not named Lynch or… hold on, gimme a minute
5. Steelers (last wk: 7) — Impressive, hard-fought win over the Ravens. No truth to the rumor that Frenchy Fuqua is coming out of retirement.
6. Chargers (last wk: 9) — The offensive capabilities we all knew they had are finally beginning to show.
7. Redskins (last wk: not in the top 10) — Hate to admit but the Skins are showing some life with the good, hard-hitting brand of football they’ve been playing.
8. Eagles (last wk: 2) — Frustrating, winnable loss to the Bears with the Skins coming to town
9. Panthers (last wk: not in the top 10) — Not crazy about this team but they are 3-1 and Steve Smith is just getting warmed up.
10. Jaguars (last wk: 8) — The Jags are coming. The Jags are coming. Seriously, this is a pretty good team with a pretty good coach that is battle tested.
