1. Baltimore Ravens: It was about time for Ray Rice to break out.

2. New York Jets: Broncos could set up as a trap game.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers: Getting Ben to fold right into offense won't be a snap.

4. Atlanta Falcons: Kroy Biermann has become heart of this defense.

5. New England Patriots: Offense was starting to get away from Moss before trade.

6. Indianapolis Colts: Don't assume they'll roll through division now.

7. Green Bay Packers: Injuries really starting to kill them.

8. Chicago Bears: Lucky that Forté took over, the way Collins played.

9. Houston Texans: Not matching up so well against NFC East teams thus far.

10. Kansas City Chiefs: Played from ­opening kickoff at Indy to win the game.

11. New Orleans Saints: Pierre Thomas loss means more than Reggie Bush.

12. New York Giants: Say what you will, but Tom Coughlin responds to naysayers well.

13. Tennessee Titans: Allowed 982 yards of offense in wins over Giants, Cowboys.

14. Philadelphia Eagles: After gutsy performance, McCoy shows he's a star.

15. Miami Dolphins: Nothing like a blowout loss to make them stew over the bye.

16. San Diego Chargers: Opening 0-3 on road, 0-2 in division having its early effect.

17. Minnesota Vikings: Moss trade makes Peterson just as happy as Favre.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Forget luck — young, plucky team making its own breaks.

19. Washington Redskins: Injuries, depth issues could be downfall of offensive line.

20. Dallas Cowboys: They've outgained every opponent ... and sit at 1-3.

21. Arizona Cardinals: Winning West would be a testament to Whisenhunt's coaching.

22. Jacksonville Jaguars: Could Marcedes Lewis be this year's Vernon Davis?

23. Denver Broncos: Suddenly, ­Brandon Lloyd is tearing up even good secondaries.

24. Cincinnati Bengals: Sum is less than the individual parts.

25. Seattle Seahawks: Sexy or not, ­Hasselbeck gives them best chance to win.

26. St. Louis Rams: Clayton injury is huge blow to emerging offense.

27. Oakland Raiders: They pull off one or two of these upsets every season.

28. Detroit Lions: That was the best pass defense this team has shown in a long time.

29. Cleveland Browns: Praying for good news on Seneca Wallace's injury.

30. San Francisco 49ers: Running out of coordinators to place blame on.

31. Carolina Panthers: Defense's four interceptions had little effect on outcome.
