7. Houston Texans (3 - 3)

When the season began, I would have never imagined the Houston Texans would make a top-ten ranking but here we are. I also didn't expect the Texans to beat the New Orleans Saints this past weekend. This Texans team just might mess around and find themselves in a playoff chase.

6. Baltimore Ravens (4 - 2)

The Baltimore Ravens stumbled a week ago but rebounded this week in a win against the Tennessee Titans. The Ravens will be a tough matchup for anyone; however, I have my concerns with the Ravens receiving corps. No one has stepped up and become that number one receiver; however, Zay Flowers could be a legit weapon. The Ravens still have Lamar Jackson and one of the best tight ends in the game, Mark Andrews.

5. Cleveland Browns (3 - 2)

The Cleveland Browns defense is a Super Bowl caliber unit but they won't get there with P.J. Walker. If Deshaun Watson can get back and become the Watson of years past, the Browns will be a dangerous team in the AFC. We'll see how things play out with Watson going forward. The Browns will live and die with Watson.
