16. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3)

How can the Pittsburgh Steelers simultaneously be so bad but be 5-3? I think this might be the weakest 5-3 team the NFL has had in some time. Kenny Pickett is no good. The offense is no good. The defense is pretty average, but at least TJ Watt gets cool sacks!

15. Minnesota Vikings (5-4)

14. New Orleans Saints (5-4)

Definitely a game that should not have been as close as it was, but a win is a win and the New Orleans Saints now have sole possession of first place in the NFC South, and a home playoff game seems likely which each passing week.

13. Seattle Seahawks (5-3)

Geno Smith is not good, in my opinion, and the Seattle Seahawks are the perfect example of a "good" football team, and nothing else. They scream 10-7 Wild Card, to me. And I think Seattle is slowly beginning to think how they can replace Geno Smith in a couple of years.
