Not much change at the top this week.  Some teams had some close calls, but despite what people think, it’s not easy to win in the NFL

1. Atlanta: Is Philly that bad? A desperate Dallas and almost dead New Orleans, followed by Cards, Bucs, Saints again and Panthers.  Who will be their first loss?

2. Giants: You make your own breaks is how the saying goes.  They have set themselves up to have a successful season and the division is already theirs to lose. Pittsburgh at home, a trip to Cincy, and then the late bye in week 11

3. Chicago: Competition takes a step up soon: Tennessee, Houston, Niners, Vikings, Seahawks and Vikes again.

4. Houston: Bills, Bears, Jags and Lions should keep them on top in the South

5. Green Bay: Again, the schedule is their friend for the short term but then it gets interesting. Arizona, Lions, Giants and Vikes.

6. San Fran: Nice statement in the division on Monday. After the bye they get Rams, Bears, Saints and Rams again.  Bears game will be fun.

7. New England: Offense will keep them going for a few weeks with Bills, Colts, Jets and Dolphins up next.

8. Pittsburgh: Nice test this week in New York vs. Giants followed by Chiefs, Rams and Browns.

9. Denver: They have survived the early test, now the schedule turns in their favor. Cincy, Carolina, San Diego and K.C.

10. Minnesota: Bad stumble.  That division isn’t going to be easy to win. Seattle, Lions, Bears, Packers. … Could spell doom or give them a big bump.

11. Miami: Well coached and proved the backup can step in and win.

12: Baltimore: Let’s see if they can adjust to a new era of defense

13. Washington: If the coaches can stop experimenting and just call the plays, they will be fine.

14. Dallas: They fought valiantly but ultimately shot themselves in the foot.

15. Seattle: Showing some toughness and a very good defense. On the right path.

At week 8 there sure are a lot of mediocre teams:

16: Buffalo: Still alive, but need to find the defense

17: Cincinnati: A real disappointment. Time to show anything is now.

18. Detroit: Saved their season with a last second score. Time to play 45 minutes if not 60.

19. Tampa: Still talented, despite the coaches college tricks

20: Arizona: Total freefall.

The Rest:  Philly, San Diego, The Jets, St. Louis, New Orleans, Tennessee, Oakland, Indy, Carolina, Cleveland, K.C., and Jacksonville
