1. Green Bay Packers: Remain undefeated as offense overcomes loss of Clifton to injury.

2. New England Patriots: Proved they could win games on the ground, as well.

3. New Orleans Saints: Anyone doubt Brees would march Saints downfield for victory?

4. Detroit Lions: Detroit won't have to wait another 10 years for a Monday-night game.

5. Baltimore Ravens: Texans should give defense stiff test in Week Six.

6. San Diego Chargers: Mathews breaking out in his sophomore season.

7. Buffalo Bills: League-worst minus-17 turnover margin last season. This year? Plus-11.

8. Washington Redskins: Get more respect as class of NFC East, even after a bye.

9. San Francisco 49ers: Showed they are for real after dismantling Buccaneers.

10. Houston Texans: Still struggling to punch it in when in the red zone.

11. Pittsburgh Steelers: Big game for a hobbled Big Ben gets Pitt back on track.

12. Oakland Raiders: What a memorable, emotional victory for Hue and the Raiders.

13. New York Giants: 395 passing yards is nice, but where is the running game?

14. Atlanta Falcons: Not going to beat the Packers by scoring 14 points.

15. Tennessee Titans: Steelers' "D" brings Hasselbeck and Titans' "O" back to earth.

16. Cincinnati Bengals: A preseason bottom dweller in the rankings, Cincy is now 3-2.

17. Dallas Cowboys: A lot to sort out in terms of play-calling during bye week.

18. New York Jets: No identity on offense is one thing, but run "D" should be big concern.

19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Completely unraveled in San Francisco.

20. Chicago Bears: Starting to seem like the forgotten team in the NFC North.

21. Seattle Seahawks: Never know what you'll get each week from Seattle.

22. Cleveland Browns: Hillis drama probably not what they wanted during bye week.

23. Philadelphia Eagles: Insulting to Miami Heat that people ever made that comparison.

24. Carolina Panthers: Newton continues to impress, but Panthers' "D" not helping him.

25. Kansas City Chiefs: Cassel, K.C. showed resilience in comeback win.

26. Jacksonville Jaguars: Gabbert has more fumbles (five) than TDs (three).

27. Denver Broncos: He completed only four passes Sunday, but it's Tebow Time in Denver.

28. Minnesota Vikings: Weren't going to blow a 28-point first-quarter lead.

29. Arizona Cardinals: Major problems in the desert after giving Vikes their first win.

30. Indianapolis Colts: Manning injury bad enough; other starters are dropping like flies.

31. St. Louis Rams: Facing Pack in Lambeau is not what winless, banged-up Rams need.

32. Miami Dolphins: As if things couldn't go worse, it's up to Matt Moore to right the ship.
