Number 17: Tennessee Titans (2-1) – Last Week 21
The Titans are definitely one of the biggest surprises in the league this season. Jake Locker has played surprisingly well and has yet to turn the ball over this season. If he can continue to be a game manager, the Titans can find a way to manage their way into the postseason.
Number 18: San Diego Chargers (1-2) – Last Week 16
Even with a losing record, the Chargers have been in every game they’ve played this year, losing both games by a combined six points. Philip Rivers is also continuing to have a really good season.
Number 19: New York Jets (2-1) – Last Week 27
Surprise, surprise. The Jets are 2-1 and Rex Ryan has them playing really good football.
Number 20: Philadelphia Eagles (1-2) – Last Week 18
After an exciting week one win, the Eagles have come back down to Earth. This defense is not good at all.
Number 21: St. Louis Rams (1-2) – Last Week 17
The Rams were a team that a lot of people had high praise for prior to the start of the season. But a tough schedule has caused the Rams to digress instead of progress.
Number 22: Arizona Cardinals (1-2) – Last Week 19
One huge hole that this team has is their offensive line. It’s hard to win football games in this league when your quarterback in constantly under pressure.
Number 23: Carolina Panthers (1-2) – Last Week 28
The vertical passing game and smash-mouth defense was present in a 38-0 rout of the New York Giants. It might not be the best time for the Panthers to have their bye week though.
Number 24: Buffalo Bills (1-2) – Last Week 25
Despite losing this past Sunday, the Bills climb up one spot due to the lack-luster play of other teams. This is a growing year for E.J. Manuel and the Bills.
Number 25: Washington Redskins (0-3) – Last Week 23
The Redskins inability to run the ball has been a huge problem this year. They’re not going to win too many games if RGIII continues to put the ball in the air 50 times a game.
Number 26: Minnesota Vikings (0-3) – Last Week 24
The Vikings secondary has been a huge problem this season. They are leading the league in passing touchdowns allowed. Teams are also loading up in the box to stop Peterson and it’s working. It’s going to be a long season in Minnesota.
Number 27: Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3) – Last Week 26
With yet another loss, the Steelers are staring 0-4 right in the face. Although they have improved in their past couple games, losing two home games is definitely not the start Mike Tomlin had envisioned.
Number 28: Oakland Raiders (1-2) – Last Week 29
Terrell Pryor has been a nice little surprise for the Raiders this season; however, other than him there isn’t really much to get excited about.
Number 29: New York Giants (0-3) – Last Week 22
The Giants have a league leading 13 turnover this season. The offensive line isn’t giving Manning time to do anything and this defense isn’t getting any pressure or coverage on the outside.
Number 30: Cleveland Browns (1-2) – Last Week 31
Despite a win on the road, Browns fans shouldn’t get too excited, as they have to face Cincinnati this weekend.
Number 31: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-3) – Last Week 30
This team is in panic mode. After losing their first three games to open up the season, they have benched quarterback Josh Freeman in favor of rookie Mike Glennon.
Number 32: Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3) – Last Week 32
They’re just bad.. That’s all.
