2. Saints (3-1) - They didn't blow out the Jags like they should have, but they got the win. Jimmy Graham is a breakout star at tight end.
3. Lions (4-0) - Another huge comeback, this time from down 24 in Dallas. Calvin Johnson has two touchdowns in every game, and is a serious MVP contender.
4. Giants (3-1) - Its kind of ridiculous to say a 2-1 team could have a must-win game, but a loss to the Cardinals would have been a huge blow. So far, in three out of four games, when the big plays needed to be made, the Giants were the team making them. Also, [enter obligatory Victor Cruz reference].
5. Buccaneers (3-1) - All four of their games have been decided by a touchdown or less, but they've been on the winning side in three of those games, and have only lost to the undefeated Lions.
6. Redskins (3-1) - Still not sold on them as a serious contender, but right now, they are finding ways to win.
7. Cowboys (2-2) - The way they blew their 24 point lead is unacceptable, but they are competitive in every game they play. Their four point loss to the Lions was the biggest margin of victory or defeat since week 11 of last season.
8. Falcons (2-2) - Julio Jones now has back to back 100 yard games within his first four career starts. I think he's going to be alright.
9. 49ers (3-1) - They already have a two game lead on the Cards and Seahawks, and arguably their closest competition in the division talent-wise (Rams) is 0-4.
10. Bears (2-2) - They've beaten the teams they should, and lost to the top two teams in the conference. We'll know a lot more about them after two straight night games at Detroit and against the Vikings.
11. Eagles (1-3) - They're going to have to go 9-3 to win 10 games. It's not impossible, and the Eagles have plenty of talent, but things are looking down right now for the Dream Team.
12. Panthers (1-3) - They're not in the business of winning games, but they always make it tough on the opposition. Every game the Panthers play is a trap game for their opponents.
13. Cardinals (1-3) - Some people are acting like they were robbed of a win, but they didn't do anything to force Cruz' fumble. Had the ruling gone their way, it would have been a lucky break caused by Cruz' mistake. Instead, they had to stop the Giants or score again, and they couldn't do either.
14. Seahawks (1-3) - Their impressive comeback against the Falcons fell short, but it looks like they could sneak up on some teams, especially at home.
15. Rams (0-4) - Already three games out, with a tough schedule ahead, the Rams are all but eliminated.
16. Vikings (0-4) - It's time for Christian Ponder, not only to get him experience, but because they need to decide if Ponder is worth passing over Andrew Luck.
