13. Las Vegas Raiders (5 - 7)

The Las Vegas Raiders jumped out to a 14 - 0 lead on the Kansas City Chiefs two weeks ago, only to score a field goal the rest of the way and lose the game, 31 - 17. I hope the Raiders retain Antonio Pierce, has the players seem to respond to him and have played better since McDaniels was fired. Still, this team isn't very good for two reasons, the defense isn't very good and neither is their young rookie quarterback.

12. Tennessee Titans (4 - 8)

The Titans nearly beat the Indianapolis Colts but a missed extra point ruined that. Will Levis has looked pretty solid as a rookie, so maybe the future is bright for the Titans. But for this season, they are done. The question is, will Derek Henry continue to be their workhorse back, or is the wear and tear starting to catch up to him? We can ask the same about Deandre Hopkins.

11. Denver Broncos (6 - 6)

The Broncos won five straight games, which included wins against the Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills but that streak finally came to an end against the Houston Texans. Regardless, the Broncos are very much in the playoff hunt, along with several other 6 - 6 teams. This week they face the Los Angeles Chargers, so they will have an opportunity to begin a new winning streak.
