http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/nyg.gif1 (1)Giants (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyg)4-0-0Hanging 44 on the Seahawks without Plaxico Burress was a strong statement. It will take more than the Browns to knock this team off course.

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/ten.gif2 (2)Titans (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ten)5-0-0They benefited from an iffy call in Baltimore but more than matched up physically. Class of the AFC is off, then at KC before a home Monday nighter vs. Colts.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/was.gif3 (6)Redskins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=was)4-1-0This team should be 7-1 at the midway point. Jim Zorn has made all the right moves over the past month.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/dal.gif4 (3)Cowboys (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=dal)4-1-0Wade Phillips says not to worry about the ugly win over the Bengals. But it's definitely cause for concern.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/pit.gif5 (5)Steelers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=pit)4-1-0After the victory at Jacksonville, it's time to consider Pittsburgh as one of the elite.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/car.gif6 (7)Panthers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=car)4-1-0The Panthers are solid all the way around and getting better.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/den.gif7 (11)Broncos (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=den)4-1-0The Broncos showed they can win games on defense. If they show they can do it consistently, the Broncos will be in good shape all season long.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/buf.gif8 (4)Bills (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=buf)4-1-0The Bills hit a speed bump on their way to what could have been an undefeated record at their bye. Trent Edwards was knocked out of the game with a concussion and will need the extra time to regroup. All the Bills will.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/nwe.gif9 (13)Patriots (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nwe)3-1-0The Patriots got just what they needed after their bye week. They bounced back from their crushing Week 3 loss to the Dolphins with a methodical victory over the 49ers.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/chi.gif10 (18)Bears (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=chi)3-2-0You can't fight it right now: The Bears are the best team in the NFC North. Kyle Orton is no mere game manager, either.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/ind.gif11 (17)Colts (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ind)2-2-0The miraculous win probably said more about the Texans than about the Colts, who remain disturbingly out of sync. Troubles will be hard to fix against Baltimore.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/phi.gif12 (9)Eagles (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=phi)2-3-0Remember when we thought this was a top-five team? Seems like such a long time ago now.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/tam.gif13 (10)Buccaneers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=tam)3-2-0The Bucs need to find an offense as they head into division showdown with Carolina.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/ari.gif14 (20)Cardinals (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=ari)3-2-0Adrian Wilson's return restores swagger to defense. Kurt Warner regains grip on offense.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/bal.gif15 (14)Ravens (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=bal)2-2-0The Ravens played well the past two weeks and have nothing to show for it. Can this team keep bouncing back from tough losses?

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/sdg.gif6 (8)Chargers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=sdg)2-3-0The Chargers are perplexing. They've lost three games by a total of 10 points, but the reality is San Diego is 2-3 and needs to get in gear soon.

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/jac.gif17 (12)Jaguars (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=jac)2-3-0The defense hasn't been what many expected, and the secondary needs to get well in time for trip to Denver.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/nyj.gif18 (19)Jets (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nyj)2-2-0Brett Favre has an extra week of prep time to help the Jets maintain the momentum they gained heading into their bye week.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/min.gif19 (21)Vikings (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=min)2-3-0The Vikings saved their season Monday night -- with a big assist from the Saints.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/atl.gif20 (24)Falcons (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=atl)3-2-0Matt Ryan won at Lambeau Field. That means he can win anywhere.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/gnb.gif21 (15)Packers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=gnb)2-3-0Injuries, especially on defense, are catching up to the Packers.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/nor.gif22 (16)Saints (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=nor)2-3-0Saints have been handing away wins.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/mia.gif23 (26)Dolphins (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=mia)2-2-0A second straight win over a preseason AFC favorite has the Dolphins surging. They're only 2-2, but hope is being restored.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/sfo.gif24 (22)49ers (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=sfo)2-3-0Road from 2-3 to a likely 2-5 is a slippery one for Mike Nolan.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/cle.gif25 (25)Browns (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=cle)1-3-0After the bye, the Browns are finally healthy. Let's see what they're really made of when they play host to the Giants next game.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/sea.gif26 (23)Seahawks (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=sea)1-3-0The Seahawks' run of four consecutive division titles might be coming to an end. Will Seattle put up a fight?
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/oak.gif27 (28)Raiders (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=oak)1-3-0With the Lane Kiffin saga behind them, the Raiders need to enter the Tom Cable era playing with the same intensity they did in the final three weeks of the Kiffin era.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/hou.gif28 (27)Texans (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=hou)0-4-0Once, a game against Miami looked as if it would be relief from a tough starting stretch. Not anymore.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/kan.gif29 (29)Chiefs (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=kan)1-4-0The Chiefs stagger into their bye with a 1-4 record on the heels of a 34-0 loss at Carolina. The question is, will the Chiefs want to come back when their bye week is over?
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/cin.gif30 (30)Bengals (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=cin)0-5-0Perhaps the Bengals should move to the NFC East. They seem to play their best games against elite competition.
http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/det.gif31 (31)Lions (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=det)0-4-0Sorry. This is one of the worst teams we've ever seen.

http://assets.espn.go.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/sml/trans/stl.gif32 (32)Rams (http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/clubhouse?team=stl)0-4-0Jim Haslett's first game as Rams head coach takes him to Washington. Not a good place to start.

I think 5 is a good spot for us at the moment. The O-line seems to be playing better, even against the tough D's of Baltimore and Jax. I hate to say this, but losing Simmons might have been what the doctor ordered.

Willie getting hurt probably helped us also, b/c now we know we have a guy who can change the game with MeMo. I like how this team is looking going into our bye week.
