10. Denver Broncos (7 - 7) 

The Broncos are another team that was on a roll for a while. After putting together an impressive five-game winning streak, that included the Chiefs and Bills, the Broncos have come back down to earth a bit, having lost two of the last three. This time, it was the Lions who completely crushed the Broncos, 42 - 17. This is the real Broncos, and it baffles me that they were somehow able to win against the Chiefs and Bills. The Broncos will be on the outside of the playoffs and watching from home this season when it's all said and done.

9. Indianapolis Colts (8 - 6) 

The Colts continue to win games with backup Gardner Minshew and Jonathan Taylor on the sidelines with an injury. Indianapolis has a terrific offensive line and a very underrated receiver in Michael Pittman Jr. We'll see if Pittman can play this weekend, after taking a big-time hit (illegal hit) and was knocked out of the game. In Taylor's absence, Trey Sermon made an appearance and had a nice game, to the tune of 17 carries for 88 yards.

8. Houston Texans (8 - 6) 

The Texans were probably left for dead by many fans, with star rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud, and receivers Nico Collins and Tank Dell out. However, Houston was able to lean on their rushing attack and pulled out an overtime win against the Tennessee Titans, 19 - 16. It's unknown at the moment if Stroud will be able to return. We know Dell is out for the season, but Collins may be able to return soon too.
