The Chiefs are still undefeated, the Giants, 49ers, and Browns are still winless. It will be difficult to see where the Giants pick up a win this season. In their game against the Chargers they lost 4 wide receivers to ankle injuries (two of them, Brandon Marshall and Odell Beckham, Jr are both out for the season).
1. Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)
The Chiefs defeated the Houston Texans on Sunday night. The offensive looked explosive, but there are definitely some concerns about the defense. The defense allowed 34 points to a rookie quarterback. I highly suspect the Chiefs will lose somewhere along the line, after all in the last 35 years on two teams have finished the NFL season undefeated (the Patriots and Dolphins). I just do not see it happening this year.
Up next: at home against the Steelers.
2. Philadelphia Eagles (4-1)
The Eagles have lost one game this season, to the Chiefs and it looks like their defense is finally catching up with the offense. After back to back weeks of barely beating bottom dwellers Chargers and the Giants the defense showed up in a big way in their defeat of the Cardinals.
Up next: at Carolina (Thursday night (October 12)
3. Green Bay Packers (4-1)
Since Week 1 against the Seahawks, the Green Bay offense has exploded, as evidenced by their takedown of the Cowboys. The Cowboys should have won this game, but they made one fatal mistake; the gave the ball back to Aaron Rodgers with about a minute and a half left in the game. You cannot give a quarterback of his caliber that much time with a chance to tie or win the game.
Up next: at Minnesota
4. Denver Broncos (3-1)
The Broncos were off this past weekend, but benefited from the losses at the top to get into the Top 4. They SHOULD get an easy win this week,

29. Los Angeles Chargers (1-4)
The Chargers finally got into the win column. However it was against the winless Giants who are absolutely depleted at wide receiver. The Chargers took the lead after the Giants lost Odell Beckham Jr. in a very emotional moment.
Up next: at Oakland
30. San Francisco 49ers (0-5)
The 49ers lost a close (yet again) game against the Colts in a game that was supposed to honor Peyton Manning but was overshadowed by the political stunt of the Vice President walking out of the game after the national anthem (the VP somehow did not "know" that the 49ers where the kneeling started were still going strong).
Up next: at Washington
31. Cleveland Browns (0-5)
The Browns are an absolute dumpster fire, nothing new. If they win this year I think it will be by pure luck and the other team will be playing their worst game of the year.
Up next: at Houston
32. New York Giants (0-5)
This team was a disaster before the injury bug bit. A team that had two of the top receivers in the game somehow could not score touchdowns. The Giants may not win a game this year. A lot of the blame is being thrown at Eli Manning and that is a bit unfair. He has no protection from the offensive line. In an off-season where the team knew they needed to improve the line they decided not to. Because of that Eli is having to get rid of the ball quicker which affects accuracy or not even getting the ball off.
Up next: at Brandon
Bye Week: Buffalo, Cincinnati, Dallas, Seattle
