1. ARIZONA CARDINALS (3-5-1)
The Cardinals hosted the undefeated 49er’s on Thursday night. Kyler Murray and Co. made a little comeback, but fall short in a 28-25 loss.
2. ATLANTA FALCONS (1-7)
The Falcons were off this week. They head to New Orleans to face the Saints next.
3. BALTIMORE RAVENS (6-2)
The Ravens got a home primetime game against the undefeated champs and they did not disappoint. The Ravens beat the Patriots 37-20 and Lamar Jackson showed the world what he can do.
Can the Ravens beat the Pats a second time if they meet in the playoffs?
4. BUFFALO BILLS (6-2)
The Bills get a rebound win against the lowly Redskins. The Bills are 6-2, they could be a 10 win team this year.
The schedule gets slightly tougher in late November and December. A four game stretch at Dallas, against Baltimore, at Pittsburgh, and at New England almost looks like a four game losing streak waiting to happen for Buffalo.
5. CAROLINA PANTHERS (5-3)
The Panthers beat the Titans for their fifth win of the season. They are fighting for a wild card spot, but with all of the talented teams in the NFC, they remain in an uphill battle.
Christian McCaffrey has 1,244 scrimmage yards and 13 touchdowns through eight games. He’s the first player to hit those kind of numbers in the first half of a season since Priest Holmes in 2002.— Bill Voth (@PanthersBill) November 4, 2019
6. CHICAGO BEARS (3-5)
The Bears’ offense continues to be terrible.
Trubisky only completed 47.6% of his passes and believe it or not, that was the first time this season he was below 50%.
7. CINCINNATI BENGALS (0-8)
The Bengals had a bye week this week.
The team announced that Ryan Finley would take over at quarterback in their next game.
With the Dolphins winning, the Bengals remain as the only winless team in the league.
8. CLEVELAND BROWNS (2-6)
9. DALLAS COWBOYS (5-3)
The Cowboys up their lead in the NFC East on Monday Night Football, but the Eagles are beginning to creep up on them.
10. DENVER BRONCOS (3-6)
The Broncos are able to pick up their third win on the season in Brandon Allen’s first NFL action.
Despite the win-loss record, the Broncos remain a feisty team that can hang in any game.
11. DETROIT LIONS (3-4-1)
The Lions lost in the black hole. This defense can’t stop anyone.
Matthew Stafford is having his best year in recent memory, but it is looking like this team is wasting it because of the sloppy defense and costly errors on offense.
12. GREEN BAY PACKERS (7-2)
The Packers were blown out by the Chargers.
Aaron Rodgers called it a wake up call for the team, which probably isn’t good news for the rest of the NFC.
13. HOUSTON TEXANS (6-3)
The Texans picked up a convincing win against the Jaguars in London and take the lead in the AFC South.
The team has a bye next week and face the Ravens on the other side.
14. INDIANAPOLIS COLTS (5-3)
The Colts lost Jacoby Brisset to injury in the first half. Veteran QB Brian Hoyer took over and almost lead the team to a win. A week after Adam Vinateri won the game for his squad he uncorked this beauty:

15. JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (4-5)
Minshew had arguably his worst game as a pro in London, throwing two interceptions and only scoring 3 points in the game against the Texans.
16. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (6-3)
Matt Moore lead the Chiefs to a last second win against the very good Vikings. This team should catch fire when Mahomes comes back.

17. LOS ANGELES CHARGERS (4-5)
The Chargers up their record to 4-5.
They don’t think they are out of it yet. They have the talent of a playoff team, if they can string together 4 or 5 wins they could be looking at a wild card spot, which would be great considering their poor start.
18. LOS ANGELES RAMS (5-3)
The Rams had the week off.
They go to to Pittsburgh next.
19. MIAMI DOLPHINS (1-7)
THE DOLPHINS WIN!
They beat the Jets at home and officially don’t have the worst record in the NFL.
DUMP THE GATORADE!

20. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (6-3)
The Vikings lost a disappointing game on the road on a last second field goal against the Chiefs.
They were able to sack Matt Moore 5 times, however.
21. NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (8-1)
The Patriot have finally lost. Lamar Jackson and the Ravens rushing attack and multiple option offense was enough to confuse the Pats D.
I question whether or not Bellichick can be confused twice in the same season though.
22. NEW ORLEANS SAINTS (7-1)
The Saints were off this week and play the Falcons next.
23. NEW YORK GIANTS (2-7)
The Giants continue to lose, but Golden Tate made an incredible catch:
24. NEW YORK JETS (1-7)
The Jets might actually be the second worst team in the NFL.
Adam Gase gets a revenge game against his former team and comes out with a loss.
Very messy franchise.
25. OAKLAND RAIDERS (4-4)
The Rrrrrraiders took it to the Lions on Sunday. I don’t think this team can leap anyone for a wild card spot this year, but Mike Mayock and Jon Gruden seem to be piecing together a tough squad.
26. PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (5-4)
The Eagles are trying to right their ship. The win against the Bears help, but can they overtake the Seahawks or Vikings for a wild card spot?
I don’t think so.
The Eagles path to the playoffs depends on overtaking the Cowboys for the NFC East crown.
27. PITTSBURGH STEELERS (4-4)
After rumors of the end of Mike Tomlin in Pittsburgh, all of a sudden this team is looking like it could be a real threat.
The Steelers are back to .500 and look to add to that against the Chargers.
28. SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (8-0)
The 49er’s remain as the only unbeaten team in the NFL. They will be on ’72 Dolphin champaign watch until (if?) they lose.
29. SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (7-2)
I don’t think there is much of an argument for MVP from anyone but Russell Wilson at this point. He is carrying that team and showed up again with late game heroics in the Seahawks overtime win.
30. TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS (2-6)
The Buccaneers took the Seahawks to overtime Sunday, but couldn’t close out with a win.
In hilarious Jameis antics news, check out this touchdown:
Is Jameis smarter than the rest of us?
31. TENNESSEE TITANS (4-5)
The Titans can’t beat the Panthers and host the Chiefs next.
Can’t help but to think that trying to tank for a QB isn’t this franchise’s best bet going forward.
32. WASHINGTON REDSKINS (1-8)
Dwayne Haskins got his first career start on Sunday and could not lead the team on a touchdown drive against the Bills.
We will see if he can improve over the team’s bye week with the Jets on the other side.
