|The Patriots are back to flexing their muscle|
New England Patriots- As evidenced by the 45-3 rout of the Jets, the Patriots are back in their rightful place in the AFC pecking order.
Pittsburgh Steelers- You have to be impressed with the win against Baltimore. They simply know how to win.
New York Jets- They need to stop all the talking and just play. Let's hope the Monday nighter, taught them a lesson.
Baltimore Ravens- The offense still has to catch up with the defense.
Kansas City Chiefs- Still holding tough in the AFC West. Will virtually lock up the division with a win over San Diego on Sunday.
Indianapolis Colts- The Colts are hanging tough, but the injuries are finally catching up to them. Missing the playoffs may actually help them.
Jacksonville Jaguars- This looks like when David Garrard first took over.
San Diego Chargers- The December magic has finally worn off. For all their gaudy stats they should be much better than 6-6. Being swept by the Raiders doesn't help them as far as staying in the hunt within the division.
Oakland Raiders- The Raiders are progressing nicely under Tom Cable. Only if the offense could be more consistent.
Miami Dolphins- Only if all their games were on the road.
Cleveland Browns- Despite the strides they've made recently, Eric Mangini may not be around to see the fruits of his labor.
Houston Texans- Gary Kubiak may not be the man to get them over the hump. The Texans just seem too soft.
Tennessee Titans- Will owner Bud Adams force out Jeff Fisher or just force him to play Vince Young.
Buffalo Bills- Lots of tough losses this year. Maybe they can "Luck" up into the top pick in the draft. Andrew Luck that is.
Cincinnati Bengals- Lots of talent. Lots of underacheivers. In my opinion this has to be the end of the Marvin Lewis era.
Denver Broncos- Another from the Bill Belichick tree that got the ax. Tim Tebow's sugar daddy is no longer around. When will coaches/GM's learn that they can't force others out (players) and expect to win big.
