Last week in parentheses.
1. Broncos 5-1 (1): Overlooked in hoopla surrounding Peyton Manning record was fact they crushed 49ers in every phase.
2. Eagles 5-1 (4): Chip Kelly with extra week to prepare for trip to face talented Cardinals should make for compelling viewing.
3. Cowboys 6-1 (6): DeMarco Murray missed 11 games in 2011-13 but he has been a horse and is on pace for 2,086 yards.
4. Colts 5-2 (7): A.J. Green or not, Mighty impressive to shut out Bengals, forcing them to punt on 11 of first 12 possessions.
5. Patriots 5-2 (5): Tom Brady 3-0 vs. Bears and has had extra time to prepare after narrow Thursday win over hapless Jets.
6. Cardinals 5-1 (8): Two games up on Seahawks near halfway point, Bruce Arians has to be in running for coach of year again.
7. Chargers 5-2 (2): Chance for them to get back on track Thursday with statement game at Denver where they won last year.
8. Ravens 5-2 (10): Tops in NFL allowing only 14.9 points per game and Joe Flacco averaging 9.2 yards per pass attempt last four games.
9. Seahawks 3-3 (3): Plenty for Pete Carroll to figure out after loss to Rams but at least problematic Percy Harvin traded away.
10. Packers 5-2 (12): They keep winning and Aaron Rodgers will be at forefront of MVP talk. He has 18 touchdown passes and one pick.
11. Lions 5-2 (13): Story is first-in-league defense allowing 290.3 yards per game and second in points allowed.
12. Bengals 3-2-1 (9): Marvin Lewis needs to get this figured out and stop slide with Ravens coming to town Sunday.
13. 49ers 4-3 (11): 49ers should be OK if they can remain above .500 as Aldon Smith will return soon and NaVorro Bowman could follow.
14. Chiefs 3-3 (17): They are getting a little healthier and have chance to get on run vs. Rams and Jets at home and at Buffalo.
15. Steelers 4-3 (19): 24-point surge at end of first half Monday to stun Texans might have kept season from going south.
16. Bills 4-3 (21): Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller out and now Bills hand over backfield duties to a real bruiser in Anthony Dixon.
17. Dolphins 3-3 (22): Running game looks better with Lamar Miller more involved; Ryan Tannehill was sharp in beating Bears.
18. Panthers 3-3-1 (14): Pressure is going to be on Cam Newton to carry club in bottom-heavy NFC South as defense just isn't same.
19. Rams 2-4 (27): Love fake punt backed up deep in own end in closing minutes. Does it spark turnaround for young team?
20. Saints 2-4 (15): Most disappointing team in the NFL this season. By far.
21. Bears 3-4 (16): Last time Jay Cutler won a game at Soldier Field was Oct. 10, 2013.
22. Browns 3-3 (18): Mike Pettine says team "briefly" considered playing Johnny Football a series or two last week. His time will come.
23. Giants 3-4 (20): Off week comes at good time. Jason Pierre-Paul says Big Blue can run table after that. Doubtful but they could be spoiler.
24. Texans 3-4 (23): The more Ryan Fitzpatrick plays the more you wonder why they didn't use high pick on quarterback in May.
25. Vikings 2-5 (25): First-round pick Anthony Barr had 10 tackles and recovered two fumble recoveries in loss at Buffalo. Defense will improve.
26. Falcons 2-5 (24): Injuries are crippling the offensive line and trip to London to face tough Lions D-line could be frustrating.
27. Redskins 2-5 (28): OK, so Kirk Cousins isn't the answer but that doesn't mean RG3 is and Colt McCoy definitely isn't.
28. Jets 1-6 (29): Who will be first to barricade himself in dark room with migraine: Rex Ryan or Percy Harvin?
29. Titans 2-5 (26): Jake Locker or Charlie Whitehurst? Charlie Whitehurst or Jake Locker? How about Zach Mettenberger?
30. Jaguars 1-6 (32): Blake Bortles had his worst game of season and it turned into first win of season. That's progress.
31. Bucs 1-5 (30): Lovie Smith will have to make a call on Josh McCown or Mike Glennon soon with McCown recovered from a thumb sprain.
32. Raiders 0-6 (31): Travel packages available for silver and black fans flocking to Chicago to see Roger Goodell announce No. 1 pick of 2015 draft.
