The Dallas Cowboys look like contenders in the NFC, while the Seattle Seahawks are likely finished after Russell Wilson’s injury.
0-5 LW: 32
A 20-game losing streak. Very impressive.
1-4 LW: 31
The Texans did a nice job blowing their second-half lead. Almost impressive.
The Lions find so hard. Love Dan Campbell. He’s the answer in Detroit.
If the Jets don’t get real support for Zach Wilson, this could be a disaster.
New York Giants
1-4 LW: 28
Those injures are brutal.
1-4 LW: 25
The Dolphins were supposed to be a threat this year. Not looking like one.
2-3 LW: 27
Atlanta is 2-3 and yet feels like an 0-5 team. Just not good.
1-4 LW: 22
Nobody has played a harder schedule. Can the Colts make hay against a weaker slate?
Washington Football Team
2-3 LW: 20
The offense is bad, the defense is a huge disappointment, and it equals 2-3.
2-3 LW: 12
No Russell Wilson, no chance.
2-3 LW: 26
The Eagle showed a ton of fight on Sunday. A huge win against a good Panthers team.
3-2 LW: 15
Life isn’t as fun when you aren’t playing the Jags, Jets and Giants.
2-3 LW: 24
Losing JuJu Smith-Schuster is a big blow for an offense with precious little talent.
2-3 LW: 23
This felt like a loss. The Vikings just can’t get out of their own way.
3-2 LW: 27
Mason Crosby missed three field goals and an extra point. The Bengals needed to win that game.
New England Patriots
2-3 LW: 19
Another team who won but it felt like a loss. New England is average at best.
3-2 LW: 16
Have to win this week against the Vikings. Can’t let the snowball get out of hand.
Everyone has crapped on the Bears all year, and they’re playing for first place this weekend.
San Francisco 49ers
2-3 LW: 13
Trey Lance didn’t look ready, but the potential is there. The defense also stepped up.
New Orleans Saints
3-2 LW: 18
Jameis Winston remains mediocre at best, but the defense made enough plays to win.
3-2 LW: 14
Tennessee has been impossible to figure. Next up, the Bills and Chiefs at home.
Kansas City Chiefs
2-3 LW: 10
Patrick Mahomes was dreadful, the defense invisible, and now the Chiefs have a real uphill climb.
Las Vegas Raiders
3-2 LW: 9
Are the Raiders going through a hiccup or simply crashing to earth?
3-2 LW: 6
Can’t score 42 points and lose. And yet the Browns did just that.
4-1 LW: 11
Dallas is a real contender. The defense is much better and the offense is a juggernaut.
Los Angeles Chargers
4-1 LW: 8
The Chargers should win the West. They’re the most complete team by a wide margin.
4-1 LW: 7
Baltimore has overcome its injuries, and Lamar Jackson is back to being an MVP-level player.
Los Angeles Rams
4-1 LW: 5
It’s a two-horse race in the NFC West, and the Rams are firmly in the mix.
Green Bay Packers
4-1 LW: 4
Green Bay’s defense is usually a mess, but the offense is covering for sins. And on Sunday, the defense stepped up when needed.
5-0 LW: 3
The only unbeaten in football. Kyler Murray is the MVP through five weeks.
The best offense and defense by statistics. Buffalo announced itself as the favorite on Sunday in the AFC.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
4-1 LW: 1
Still dominant. The Bucs are the best team when at full strength.
