17. Atlanta Falcons (previously 14th)

Record: 1-3

Result: 30-28 loss to New York Jets

Record: 3-2

14. Detroit Lions (previously 16th)

Record: 3-2

Result: 22-9 loss to Green Bay

13. Dallas Cowboys (previously 18th)

Record: 2-3

Result: 51-48 loss to Denver

11. Chicago Bears (previously 9th)

Record: 3-2

Result: 26-18 loss to New Orleans

Biggest thing we learned this week: This was secretly Chicago's second-straight beatdown. A late TD made it look better than it was.

10. Baltimore Ravens (previously 11th)

Record: 3-2

Result: 26-23 win over Miami

Biggest thing we learned this week: This is still the NFL's mystery team. They didn't play all that well, but still won on the road against a good Miami team.

9. Cincinnati Bengals (previously 8th)

Record: 3-2

8. New England Patriots (previously 3rd)

Record: 4-1

Result: 13-6 loss to Cincinnati

7. Indianapolis Colts (previously 7th)

Record: 4-1

Result: 34-28 win over Seattle

6. Kansas City Chiefs (previously 7th)

Record: 5-0

Result: 26-17 win over Tennessee

Week-by-week ranking: 22-13-10-10-7-6

5. Green Bay Packers (previously 6th)

Record: 2-2

Result: 22-9 win over Detroit.

Biggest thing we learned this week: The Clay Matthews injury (he's out a month) hurts, but they weathered a brutal opening schedule fairly well.

Week-by-week ranking: 7-7-5-6-6-5

4. San Francisco 49ers (previously 5th)

Record: 3-2

Result: 34-3 win over Houston

Biggest thing we learned this week: This looks like the Alex Smith-era 49ers now. Their power running game has really taken over in the last few weeks.

3. New Orleans Saints (previously 4th)

Record: 5-0

Result: 26-18 win over Chicago

2. Seattle Seahawks (previously 2nd)

Record: 4-1

Result: 34-28 loss to Indianapolis
