The Top Ten

1 New England Patriots New England Patriots The New England Patriots are a professional American football team based in the Greater Boston region. New England Patriots are one of the few teams to have 5+ wins in the Super Bowl.

I think the reason why so many analysts say New England will win it all again is simply because Belichick and Brady have done it so many times before, and yeah, I would agree that experience counts for a lot. But I think as the season rolls on, we all see that there are some strong contenders that the Pats gotta deal with. Personally, I feel like the Patriots have enough championships to last for awhile, so I'd like to see some new club win it all this year, starting of cousre with my favorite team. I'd say I agree with you guys right down the line, they are the favorites, and they have had a cake schedule, but there's some other very good teams that are not gonna just hand over the trophy - CyberRat

Whats there left to say this week? They took care of all the lightweights laid before them, handily. Most of the NFL commentators and analysts have pretty much anoited them this seasons champions, because their defense is powerful. Its true, they've really got it together defensively. Still, I'm not convinced they are that far out in front of everyone else. I believe the NFC will produce a very strong representative for the Super Bowl, and they should be fully battle tested, the depth of quality teams in the conference is impressive. - CyberRat

Pats one one of the easiest seasons this year with what looks like three potential playoff teams their facing: Ravens week 9, Texans week 13, and Chiefs week 14, I might put in Eagles put they'll only be part of the playoffs because their division is playing bad - germshep24

They’re the clear favorite but I wouldn’t crown them Super Bowl champions yet. The thing is who have they played? Buffalo is like the most legitimate competition they have played thus far. - Randomator

2 San Fransisco 49ers

San Francisco is legit this year. That was supposed to be the first true test and they destroyed the competition - Randomator

Yeah, the Rams game was the game many pointed to as the 49ers first real opportunity to show if they've arrived as a contender, and if that's true, then they passed that test. So now what? All it really means is they cleared the first hurdle, right? They lead the division over 2 good teams, and that's great for them, but more challenges await. That's the case for every team, and the teams that can continue to get better learn and grow from it. If they pass the last test, they are champions. If they don't, they try to use every means necessary to get better, to run the gauntlet again. I like the 49ers organization, and its great for them this week, but they're probably not popping champagne corks celebrating, its time to prepare for week 7. The winners have to learn to be winners too, or all that's happened so far will be forgotten. Win it all and it will be remembered. Its our luxury as fans to sometimes watch our favorite teams succeed, but for players, coaches and front office ...more - CyberRat

Clearly a statement win over the Rams. I don't think its coincidental that the teams that play sound defensively, or better, make up the bulk of this week's top ten, especially early in the season. Talk about sound defense, Jared Goff's longest pass downfield (Before YAC) was 8 yards. Yikes. - CyberRat

3 Green Bay Packers Green Bay Packers The Green Bay Packers are a professional American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The Packers compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division. The Packers have won 4 super bowls and 13 NFL championships.

Nice little comeback against the Lions. I think the Pack, 'Niners and Saints are all deserving of the 2nd spot on this list. And maybe Seattle isn't that far behind that group.. Its another ugly win for Green Bay, but hey, if you keep winning, any way, you've got something going. No one is gonna worry about style points in the end. - CyberRat

I will say though that win should come with an asterisk. Lions all but had them pinned against the wall - Randomator

4 New Orleans Saints New Orleans Saints The New Orleans Saints are a professional American football team based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Saints currently compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference South division.

Just as many NFL analysts have already crowned NE, I wouldn't count these guy's out just yet. They've got the talent at key positions to be in every game, as we see by their 4-0 record since Brees went under the knife. - CyberRat

Offense has been a bit off but the defense has stepped up when necessary and Teddy Bridgewater still finds a way to win - Randomator

5 Seattle Seahawks Seattle Seahawks The Seattle Seahawks are a professional American football franchise based in Seattle, Washington. The Seahawks compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference West division.

The rest of the NFC better hope their defense continues to play at a middling level, because Wilson has a ton of experience to go along with his dynamic athletic ability. He alone can carry this teams offense. - CyberRat

6 Houston Texans Houston Texans The Houston Texans are a professional American football team based in Houston, Texas. The team competes in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

Watson was on his way to a historic rookie campaign before tearing his knee up. There doesn't appear to be any drop off, in fact, he's already the most feared player in the AFC South. He adds unmatched athletic ability to the QB position, and the Texans are benefiting. - CyberRat

7 Kansas City Chiefs Kansas City Chiefs The Kansas City Chiefs are a professional American football team based in Kansas City, Missouri. The Chiefs compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's American Football Conference West division.

2 straight L's at home will shake any teams confidence. I'm sure Andy Reid is losing sleep trying to scheme a way out of that porous run defense, so maybe they'll get it back together soon, but getting dominated in time of possession makes them vulnerable. Everyone is going to try to lean on them now, until they show they can stop it. - CyberRat

8 Minnesota Vikings Minnesota Vikings The Minnesota Vikings are an American football team based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. The Vikings joined the National Football League as an expansion team in 1960, and first took the field for the 1961 season.

I read many argue the Vikings will never win big with Kirk Cousins at QB, but he has the arm talent to take this offense far. Its never too late to learn a skill, even to be a winner. Of course, a road tilt against the Lions will make sure the Vikes don't get complacent, so another hurdle looms. - CyberRat

9 Buffalo Bills Buffalo Bills The Buffalo Bills are a professional American football team based in the Buffalo–Niagara Falls metropolitan area that competes in the National Football League. Buffalo Bills had the longest playoff drought of any team which came to an end in 2017.

I did find it hard to move this team down a couple slots. But I do feel some other teams that needed some time to gel are moving into positions ahead of Buffalo, especially offensively. That's no slight, I think the future is very bright for the Bills, but I also think their offensive limitations will hold them back. For now. - CyberRat

10 Los Angeles Rams Los Angeles Rams The Los Angeles Rams are a professional American football team based in the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

I was going to drop the Rams way back to the mid teens, but then they shocked many and traded the farm for Jalen Ramsey. He's that good, and adds another talented piece to the Rams. - CyberRat

The Contenders

11 Carolina Panthers Carolina Panthers The Carolina Panthers are a professional American football team based in Charlotte, North Carolina, that competes in the National Football League.

Surely they have shown themselves worthy of being among the top10 teams? I do wonder though, when Can Newton is healthy, do you put him back under center? Just like the Saints situation with Brees, this team is undefeated since their starting QB went down. Now, no one is going to question who will start once Brees is oked to go, he's a Hall of Famer. But in Newtons case, I'm not as confident.

12 Chicago Bears Chicago Bears The Chicago Bears are a professional American football team in Chicago, Illinois. The Bears compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference North division.

The anomaly against the Raiders is fresh in their minds. I wouldn't want to face a motivated Bears defense, coming off a bye. But they better start stringing some wins together, given their offense's limitations. The NFC just wont have room for any pretenders once the playoffs roll around this season.
