4. Miami Dolphins (6 - 3)
The Miami Dolphins were on a bye this past week and lost to the Kansas City Chiefs the week before that. The Dolphins are 6 - 0 against teams with losing records but 0 - 3 against teams that had winning records win they played them. Good news Dolphins fans, they don't play a winning team for more than a month.
3. Jacksonville Jaguars (6 - 3)
The Jacksonville Jaguars were on a roll, having won five straight games. At one point they were number one on our rankings but then they met with a San Francisco team that was struggling and were embarrassed at home 34 - 3. I have little doubt the Jags will rebound though. They host the Tennessee Titans this week and should come away with a win. Next week is a huge division battle with the Houston Texans. That should be a fun game.
2. Baltimore Ravens (7 - 3)
The Baltimore Ravens won four in a row, including impressive wins against the Detroit Lions and Seattle Seahawks. They vaulted to the number one spot in these rankings; however, a loss against the Cleveland Browns cost them that spot but number two in the conference is a good place to be. More importantly, they lead the AFC North division and right behind the Chiefs for that all-important number seed come playoff time.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (7 - 2)
The Kansas City Chiefs had a bye week but moved up in the rankings after losses by both the Jaguars and Ravens. The Chiefs won their last game, against the Dolphins and now get ready to host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football. The Chiefs haven't been overly impressive in most games but continue to win and have the best record in the conference and second-best in the NFL.
