Last week: 9 (+2) Record: 5-3 The Steelers have been awfully impressive the last few weeks and even more impressive is that they’re doing it without Troy Polamalu. Over the last few years, they allow about a touchdown less per game when he’s in the lineup as opposed to when he’s not in the lineup, [...]

Last week: 11 (+8) Record: 4-4 The Buccaneers are surging thanks to Doug Martin’s improved play and the improved chemistry between Josh Freeman and new free agent acquisition Vincent Jackson. They’ve won 3 of 4 and sit at 4-4 with a +41 points differential that ranks 6th in the loaded NFC (for reference, it’d be [...]

Last week: 12 (-2) Record: 4-4 In spite of a close road loss in a previously underrated Colts team, the Dolphins are still legitimate playoff contenders and if history is any indication, they’re more likely to make it than some other borderline playoff teams in the AFC right now, other than San Diego. Every year, [...]

Last week: 13 (-5) Record: 6-3 The Packers are 6-3 after a 2-3 start, but since their Houston blowout win, all 3 of their games have been very easy, against St. Louis, Jacksonville, and Arizona and I haven’t been impressed with their performance overall. Defensively, they’re about as banged up as you can get. Already [...]

Last week: 17 (+0) Record: 3-5 The Cowboys will stop underachieving once they fire Wade Phillips…oh wait… they did that 2 years ago. In an interview shown before Sunday Night Football, Owner/GM Jerry Jones said that if the GM were anyone other than him, he as Owner would have fired him by now. However, the [...]

Last week: 12 (-7) Record: 5-4 In his last 4 games, Christian Ponder completed 73 of 126 (57.9%) for 724 yards (5.7 YPA), 4 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions, all less than stellar team performances (0-3-1 ATS, 1-3 SU). The only reason it was even close against Seattle was because Adrian Peterson went nuts, but as [...]

Last week: 22 (-4) Record: 3-6 The Redskins lost on the Sunday before the election. That means Mitt Romney will be out next president. Before the last 17 of the last 18 elections, when the Redskins win on the Sunday before the election, the incumbent party wins. When the Redskins lose, the incumbent party loses. [...]

Last week: 26 (+1) Record: 3-6 The Bills actually move up a spot despite a 12 point loss to the Texans because I felt the Titans, who have the league’s worst points differential, were way less impressive (despite their head-to-head win over the Bills) and dropped the Titans 2 spots. The Bills were slightly more [...]
