Jason Peters is healthy at left tackle. Lane Johnson finally got suspended. Philadelphia went 0-3 against NFC East teams on the road and 0-4 against NFC North. The good news is the Eagles get home games against the NFC East against Dallas and New York in weeks 16 and 17 with Lane Johnson back. Right now the Eagles are on the brink of being eliminated from the NFC Playoff Picture.
Rex Ryan probably went out & hired a couple of hitmen during the bye week to go hunt down the refs during the Seattle game. The Bills are 2-0 now back at 6-5 since the bye week where Rex Ryan hired hitmen. Now the Bills are 6-7 on the year.
The Colts are 6-7, but have been too inconsistent on defense to move up in my rankings even with their win over the Titans and road win over the Packers. Losing Andrew Luck on Thanksgiving killed their momentum. The Colts face the Jets and can return to .500 with a win.
The Bengals have a talented squad. Andrew Whitworth was awful at left tackle against the Giants. Right end Michael Johnson only has 1.5 sacks so the Bengals have to find a new left tackle or a new 4-3 right end.
The Titans are 7-6 and have faced tougher opponents. However, it feels like their window of opportunity has passed. I like their defense better than the Colts even though they got swept by the Colts. I'll up if they can beat the Colts team that is much stronger then when the Colts defeated the Titans at Nissan Stadium from the first meeting.
Minnesota does not have Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback, Adrian Peterson at running back, Matt Kalil at left tackle, Andre Smith at right tackle, or John Sullivan at center. This is not the Vikings team from last year and this defense cannot carry the Vikings forever.
WERE PROBABLY THE MOST UNDERRATED TEAM RIGHT NOW! I figured they were on there way up soon but it looks like its even earlier then I thought. I was expecting it probably starting next year. Winston is looking better. Maybe FAs will actually want to come & play for them now being they're showing signs of life.
The Giants have a winning record thanks to their defense back at full health. The Giants could beat Detroit and Seattle before falling to the Cowboys in the NFC Championship after possibly sweeping them in the regular season.
