1.  Houston Texans (11-1) (1) – The big showdown is here:  Texans v. Patriots on MNF.

2.  Atlanta Falcons (11-1) (3) – While the rest of the NFC has floundered a bit, they’ve kept right on winning.

3.  New England Patriots (9-3) (5) – Even more remarkable, their losses this season are by a combined 4 points.

4.  Baltimore Ravens (9-3) (2) – Don’t overreact:  who didn’t have them splitting with the Steelers before the season started?

5.  Denver Broncos (9-3) (7) – Have somewhat quietly assembled the NFL’s longest winning streak (7).

6.  San Francisco 49ers (8-3-1) (4) – So their achilles heel is they can’t beat the Rams?

7.  Green Bay Packers (8-4) (9) – Have a clear path to the NFC North title.

8.  Chicago Bears (8-4) (6) – Have lost 3 of their last 4 and are officially in trouble.

9.  Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5) (10) – Once a year, they win a game on nothing but pure guts.

10.  Indianapolis Colts (8-4) (11) – With 2 of last 4 vs. Houston, they can’t afford a slip against the Titans this week.

11.  Seattle Seahawks (7-5) (13) – 3 of their last 4 are at home, so the playoffs are looking pretty possible.

12.  New York Giants (7-5) (8) – Now their backs are REALLY against the wall, so expect them to play tougher than ever.

13.  Cincinnati Bengals (7-5) (14) – Have fought their way back into it, now they have to close.

14.  Washington Redskins (6-6) (16) – Score one for the defense!

15.  Dallas Cowboys (6-6) (18) – Good news for the rivalry:  that season-ender vs. the Redskins is starting to look like a very big deal.

16.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-6) (12) – Schedule just got too tough down the stretch.

17.  Minnesota Vikings (6-6) (15) – Christian Ponder is killing them right now.

18.  St. Louis Rams (5-6-1) (21) – Don’t laugh:  three of their last four are against Minnesota, Tampa and Seattle, which are three of the four teams directly ahead of them in the playoff race.  They’ve also played the second toughest schedule in the NFC, so, there’s that.

19.  New Orleans Saints (5-7) (17) – Slow painful end to a doomed season.

20.  Miami Dolphins (5-7) (19) – Have settled into mediocrity.

21.  New York Jets (5-7) (24) – Kudos for still being entertaining at 5-7.

22.  Detroit Lions (4-8) (20) – Need to scrap the Wide 9.  It is the easiest defense to beat in the NFL.

23.  Buffalo Bills (5-7) (25) – Much too little, much too late.

24.  Cleveland Browns (4-8) (26) – This team deserves credit for fighting their way out of the basement after a terrible start.

25.  San Diego Chargers (4-8) (22) – The winning percentage of the teams they’ve beaten is .229.  In other words, this team can’t beat anybody who’s even average.

26.  Arizona Cardinals (4-8) (23) – Tied with the Eagles for the NFL’s longest losing streak (8).

27.  Tennessee Titans (4-8) (27) – This is probably the league’s most boring team.  Who cares.

28.  Carolina Panthers (3-9) (28) – It’s a cliche, but, they’re better than their record.

29.  Philadelphia Eagles (3-9) (30) – Work that draft pick, Philly!

30.  Jacksonville Jaguars (2-10) (31) – For what it’s worth, this is far and away Chad Henne’s best season statistically.

31.  Kansas City Chiefs (2-10) (32) – Whatever you want to say about Brady Quinn, he played a great game and then had some very mature and sober words to say about the tragedy in Kansas City afterwards.

32.  Oakland Raiders (3-9) (29) – Try showing up.
