32.) New York Giants (0-6): Despite having one of the top five receivers in the league in Victor Cruz this season, Eli Manning is still throwing touchdowns for the other team. This season he has already matched his interception total from last year, amounting to a total of 15 thrown. -Daveson Perez

31.) Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6): The Jags may have figured out Peyton Manning because they held him to his lowest production of the season. They are still not a winning team by any means but any given Sunday. -Collin McQuade

30.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-5): The situation in Tampa is not good. To put a rookie QB in a losing environment is going to be terrible for his confidence moving forward. -DP

29.) Pittsburgh Steelers (1-4): The Steelers finally started forcing turnovers on defense but they are still far from the old defenses we are used to. They need to continue producing on that side of the ball if they want to win. -CM

28.) Minnesota Vikings (1-4): What was a very tough week for Adrian Peterson, ended in a loss Sunday against the Carolina Panthers. AP lost his 2-year-old son early in the week and still played on Sunday. His performance wasn’t great, but can you blame him? -DP

27.) Oakland Raiders (2-4): Terrelle Pryor’s sacks were in the double digits. The Raiders have the talent to win but they must keep their quarterback upright. -CM

26.) Buffalo Bills (2-4): Thad Lewis played surprisingly well and the Bills lost a tough one. They are getting closer to a winning formula but I don’t think it comes this week.  -CM

25.) Washington Redskins (1-4): RGIII played very well despite the loss to the Cowboys. It was refreshing to see glimpses of the old him coming out during the game. -DP

24.) Arizona Cardinals (3-3): Carson Palmer is throwing too many interceptions on deep throws and this isn’t going to work with the formula of Larry Fitzgerald and a slow running game.-CM

23.) New York Jets (3-3): Geno Smith did not play well at all against the Steelers but that is just part of the growth that he needs to go through in order to become great. -DP

22.) Carolina Panthers (2-3): Cam Newton came to play in this game. He was going above and beyond and that’s why the Panthers won. -DP

21.) Houston Texans (2-4): T.J. Yates came in to replace Matt Schaub at quarterback and the offensive struggles continued. Maybe it wasn’t Schaub after all. Playing the 6-0 Chiefs this week doesn’t help the cause.-CM

20.) Atlanta Falcons (1-4): Bye week. They definitely need to turn things around next week though. The Bucs are the only thing holding them back from being last in the division. -DP

19.) San Diego Chargers (3-3): Philip Rivers is leading a campaign to show that he’s not finished in the NFL just yet. He showed the Colts’ Andrew Luck a thing or two. -DP

18.)  Cleveland Browns (3-3): The Browns show flashes of being good but then they show flashes of being terrible. They might beat bad teams but the Packers are far from bad. -CM

17.) Tennessee Titans (3-3): The defense got better but the quarterback got hurt. It’s like the Titans take one step forward and two steps back.-CM

16.) St. Louis Rams (3-3): The Rams pulled out an easy win against a talented, but struggling football team in Houston. -DP

15.) Baltimore Ravens (3-3): The Ravens running game was nonexistent and they need to get it back because Joe Flacco isn’t good enough to win without the play action and Ray Rice being the bread and butter. –CM

14.) Philadelphia Eagles (3-3): Michael Vick was sidelined but that didn’t matter. Nick Foles was very impressive, throwing three TD’s and registering his first win of the season. -DP

13.) Dallas Cowboys (3-3): Tony Romo played bad, but the team somehow figured out a way to win. No one can seem to figure out the Cowboys this year; sometimes they look like contenders and other times they look like they won’t win the division. But if Romo doesn’t choke they should be fine. -CM

12.) Miami Dolphins (3-2): Bye week this week. Shouldn’t miss a beat in Week 7. -DP

11.) Cincinnati Bengals (4-2): The Bengals defense is playing great; they are not allowing people to run the ball. They’ve won four of their last five and their own running game is very strong. -CM

10.) Indianapolis Colts (4-2): Andrew Luck just didn’t have it going on in this game. Will it affect his season, though? I don’t think so. -DP

9.) Detroit Lions (4-2): Matt Stafford has found his receiver for when Calvin Johnson is covered and it is Joseph Fauria. He is 4 of 6 in end zone attempts, which looks like it will continue. -CM

8.) San Francisco 49ers (4-2): Colin Kaepernick and his teammates are showing fans and the media that they are not worried about a thing. They just won their third straight. -DP

7.) Green Bay Packers (3-2): The Packers lost two of their biggest weapons on offense this week. Aaron Rodgers will find a way to win, and they still have Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley. -CM

6.) Chicago Bears (4-2): The Bears got cocky and could have lost the game. After the three interceptions in the first half, their defense was stagnant and allowed the Giants to get back in it. -CM

5.) New Orleans Saints (5-1): Jimmy Graham was rendered useless against the Patriots. This might be the blueprint going forward. -CM

4.) New England Patriots (5-1): It still blows my mind how Tom Brady is getting wins with this current team. That game-winning drive was something that very few quarterbacks can pull off, especially with such limited talent. -CM

3.) Seattle Seahawks (5-1): The keys for this team are Marshawn Lynch and the defense. And it is not going to change any time soon.-CM

2.) Kansas City Chiefs (6-0): The Chiefs’ defense was more than formidable albeit that they faced the Raiders this week. The Raiders faced a fourth and 48 in this game. -DP

1.) Denver Broncos (6-0): Although it was a tough week, they are still the best team in the league and the true test comes against Indy in Peyton’s return.-CM
