Teams                        Chg                                    Rcrd
1
[team logo]
Rams Can their offense be stopped? It is clicking right now and Jared Goff is an MVP candidate. -- 4-0-0
2
[team logo]
Chiefs Patrick Mahomes is playing at such a high level already. Now comes his toughest test against the No. 1-ranked Jaguars defense. -- 4-0-0
3
[team logo]
Titans If Marcus Mariota can play like he did against the Eagles, they will be a playoff team. It's that simple. 2 3-1-0
4
[team logo]
Jaguars They face a monster game this week at Kansas City against the Chiefs. Their defense against the Chiefs offense will be fun. 2 3-1-0
5
[team logo]
Bears At 3-1, they are off to a fast start and the offense is starting to really get going. The defense is nasty and could carry this team. 11 3-1-0
6
[team logo]
Saints They won two straight on the road to take over the division lead. The defense played better against the Giants. 2 3-1-0
7
[team logo]
Redskins They come off their bye with a big game at New Orleans. That will decide an early contender in the NFC. -- 2-1-0
8
[team logo]
Panthers After a bye, they play a winnable home game against the Giants. They play three straight against the NFC East coming up. 1 2-1-0
9
[team logo]
Bengals At 3-1, they have proven to be a playoff contender. But they do need to tighten up on defense. 2 3-1-0
10
[team logo]
Ravens They are playing well on both sides of the ball and the defense has been outstanding in the second half. They have a playoff look about them. 2 3-1-0
11
[team logo]
Patriots So much for burying the Patriots. They can still get it done when they need to do so and remain the class of the AFC East. 7 2-2-0
12
[team logo]
Dolphins Which team are they? The one that opened 3-1 or the one that got blown out by the Patriots last week? We'll know after they play the Bengals this week. 8 3-1-0
13
[team logo]
Eagles They just haven't looked like the team that made the Super Bowl run last year. The offensive line needs to play better. 10 2-2-0
14
[team logo]
Packers They haven't looked crisp yet this season, but you get the idea it's coming. The defense played well against the Bills. -- 2-1-1
15
[team logo]
Broncos They let one get away against the Chiefs Monday night. They need to get more from Case Keenum. 5 2-2-0
16
[team logo]
Cowboys They got back to running the ball with Ezekiel Elliott against the Lions. That's something that they have to do more of coming up. 7 2-2-0
17
[team logo]
Chargers They found a way against the 49ers, but they still look off on defense. They need to pick it up. 4 2-2-0
18
[team logo]
Seahawks The defense has picked it up the past two weeks. But now here come the Rams. 4 2-2-0
19
[team logo]
Steelers At 1-2-1, if they don't fix that defense they will be watching come playoff time. They can't stop anybody. 9 1-2-1
20
[team logo]
Vikings They've lost two straight and the defense has been a problem. That's a major surprise heading to Philadelphia this week. 5 1-2-1
21
[team logo]
Buccaneers They head to their bye and Jameis Winston will be the quarterback when they get back. It's the way it should be. 8 2-2-0
22
[team logo]
Lions At 1-3, they are in a big hole in the division. They still don't have an identity on offense. 5 1-3-0
23
[team logo]
Falcons Their season could be on the line this week at Pittsburgh. Their defense just isn't good enough with all the injuries. 4 1-3-0
24
[team logo]
Giants At 1-3, this is going to be a long season. They have a tough road game against a rested Carolina team this week. -- 1-3-0
25
[team logo]
Texans That was a season-saving overtime victory against the Colts. Now they have the battle for Texas this week against the Cowboys. 7 1-3-0
26
[team logo]
Colts Frank Reich blew the Texans game with his bad decision to drop this team to 1-3. At least Andrew Luck came alive. 1 1-3-0
27
[team logo]
Raiders They pulled one out in overtime against the Browns. Maybe that gets this team going, but the defense is a major issue. 3 1-3-0
28
[team logo]
Browns At 1-2-1, they've had chances in all four of their games. They have to be excited about the future with Baker Mayfield. 2 1-2-1
29
[team logo]
Bills There are going to be games like they had at Green Bay with a young team. The big thing will be how they bounce back. 2 1-3-0
30
[team logo]
Jets The enthusiasm about the season-opening victory has waned. This team isn't very good right now. 2 1-3-0
31
[team logo]
49ers They competed against the Chargers, but couldn't come through in the end. C.J. Beathard impressed in his first start for the injured Jimmy Garoppolo 2 1-3-0
32
[team logo]
Cardinals They made the right move to go to Josh Rosen, but this season is toast. It's all about building for 2019. 1 0-4-0

NBC Week 5 Power Ranking

1. Rams (4-0; last week No. 1): The Greatest Show-Offs on Turf, Part II.

2. Chiefs (4-0; No. 2): It may not happen this year, but Andy Reid will get his Super Bowl win with Patrick Mahomes.

3. Saints (3-1; No. 4): Before the Rams and Chiefs square off in a possible Super Bowl preview, the Rams and Saints will get together in the Superdome for a game that could be just as good.

4. Ravens (3-1; No. 10): In a league with plenty of offense, the Ravens are still playing defense. Especially in the second half, when they’ve allowed nine points all year.

5. Jaguars (3-1; No. 9): Doug Marrone may never “go for two” again, unless he has an itch in one very specific area of his anatomy.

6. Patriots (2-2; No. 14): In New England, two straight ugly losses is the new ugly loss.

7. Eagles (2-2; No. 3): When the Vikings return to Philly this weekend, the loser will match its total losses from 2017.

8. Bengals (3-1; No. 15): Vontaze Burfict is back from his latest suspension in advance of his inevitable next suspension. Until then, the Bengals need to ride him to as many wins as they can.

9. Packers (2-1-1; No. 13): Aaron Rodgers and Mike McCarthy seem to be playing their own separate game.  It’s called, “Let’s see how uncomfortable we can make our fans.” And they’re both winning.

10. Dolphins (3-1; No. 5): “Technically, we’re in the south. So maybe we should be moved to the AFC South?”

11. Panthers (2-1; No. 11): The NFL needs more David Teppers.

12. Bears (3-1; No. 17): When do they shoot the video for the Super Bowl Shuffle remake?

13. Titans (3-1; No. 18): Plenty of owners will be wishing they’d hired Mike Vrabel when they had the chance.

14. Buccaneers (2-2; No. 6): Annnnnd Dirk Koetter once again is the favorite in the “first coach to be fired” prop bet.

15. Chargers (2-2; No. 16): Maybe the term “Visitors” officially should be changed to “Chargers.”

16. Falcons (1-3; No. 7): Great offense + bad defense = 8-8.

17. Vikings (1-2-1; No. 12): Mike Zimmer wants to improve his pass defense. Step one: Don’t put a linebacker on a receiver.

18. Seahawks (2-2; No. 19): We’ll know a lot more about this team after Sunday, when they get a chance to stay within 20 points of the Rams.

19. Steelers (1-2-1; No. 8): With the Falcons coming to town, it may be time to add a third digit to the scoreboard at Heinz Field.

20. Washington (2-1; No. 20): The NFC East is theirs for the taking, if they can find a way to become more consistent.

21. Broncos (2-2; No. 21): Case Keenum missed a wide-open Demaryius Thomas for a potential game-winning touchdown. John Elway surely is wondering whether Chad Kelly would have made that throw.

22. Cowboys (2-2; No. 28): The Cowboys finally have found a No. 1 receiver. His name is Ezekiel Elliott.

23. Browns (1-2-1; No. 23): The Browns need to learn how to win and/or how to not lose.

24. Lions (1-3; No. 22): Chris Berman would call him Kerryon “My Wayward Son” Johnson. (Which may be one of the reasons why Chris Berman is gone.)

25. Bills (1-3; No. 24): They did much better in Wisconsin when they went there accidentally.

26. Texans (1-3; No. 30): Deshaun Watson is back. Will it make a difference?

27. 49ers (1-3; No. 25): Maybe there’s hope, post-Garoppolo.

28. Colts (1-3; No. 26): After playing 70 minutes on a Sunday, the Colts definitely won’t be hanging any banners after a Thursday night game in New England.

29. Raiders (1-3; No. 31): Jon Gruden won a football game with a basketball score on a baseball diamond.

30. Giants (1-3; No. 27): What will they do with the second straight second overall pick?

31. Jets (1-3; No. 29): They’ll always have Week One.

32. Cardinals (0-4; No. 32): If Josh Rosen keeps playing like he did on Sunday, they won’t stay in this spot much longer.

NBC has Bears climbing only 5 spots from 17th to 12th.

*How the hell are the Packers still ranked higher?
