Randomator
NFL teams with the most shocking results good or bad as of Week 5.

The Top Ten

1 New York Giants New York Giants The New York Giants are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

What has gone right for the Giants this year? - Gametheorysucks

Yeah, good point. In addition to being vastly overrated in the pre season, they have not gotten many breaks. That all adds up to 0-5. - Ned964

The football gods gave the Giants the "Browns treatment" - Randomator

After losing to the Chargers the Giants season has been a major disappointment. Mcadoo is partly to blame and OBJ is out for the season. - Randomator

Like I said there season is over literally 4 Wide outs hurt what else can they resort to now? - htoutlaws2012

2 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.

Cam Newton came up huge in a win over a solid Lions team. They were able to score 27 points and hold off a Lions comeback. - Randomator

Props to Carolina for the big stunner going back to back road games, and looking incredibly good against a team with a top 10 defense beware everyone Cam Newton is back, and made a statement. - htoutlaws2012

Should be a great game vs Philadelphia on Thursday - Randomator

3 Philadelphia Eagles Philadelphia Eagles The Philadelphia Eagles are a professional football franchise based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The Eagles compete in the National Football League as a member club of the league's National Football Conference East division.

Philly showed us their potential by dominating a lifeless Arizona team. They look like a real playoff team and have recovered from the Chip Kelly mess nicely. They had an explosive offense and a solid defense - Randomator

Yes, that'll be an interesting game Thursday. Another team I feel might be playing a bit over their heads right now. They have certainly surprised after 5 weeks. But in reality, can they really have rebounded from the Chip Kelly mess this quick? - Ned964

Excellent momentum right now - Gametheorysucks

4 New York Jets New York Jets The New York Jets are a professional American football team located in the New York metropolitan area.

They beat the Browns which isn't really that impressive but the fact that they are still 3-2 and tied with New England and Buffalo is when you consider they were predicted that be the worst team and they are also ahead of their in city rival Giants. - Randomator

It is very surprising to find them at 3-2. Almost every publication this pre season had them at, or close to, the worst team. It's obvious they had a fire sale, so what a start. That being said, the bottom will almost certainly fall out soon. - Ned964

Everyone said they were going to be tanking this season but they have been off to a decent start by Jets standards - Randomator

This season has been so Jets. They are 3-2 and tied for first just watch them fall to last place - Gametheorysucks

5 Pittsburgh Steelers Pittsburgh Steelers The Pittsburgh Steelers are a professional American football team based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, that competes in the National Football League.

What happened to Pittsburgh? Especially the offense. Big Ben threw 5 picks against the Jags. They put up 9 total points. 9 Points! And it was at home! - Randomator

It's a soap opera in Pittsburgh that's for sure wow did they just do horrible, well mostly big Ben playing with high emotions does not help this team well, and it shows. Now the AFC north is up for grabs after that devastating loss. - htoutlaws2012

6 Jacksonville Jaguars Jacksonville Jaguars The Jacksonville Jaguars are an American professional football franchise based in Jacksonville, Florida.

The Jags are looking decent but they have to play consistently - Gametheorysucks

If they get consistent I see potential for Jacksonville - Randomator

The Jags destroyed the Steelers in Pittsburgh and held them to 9 total points. Fournette meanwhile looked like a total beast. - Randomator

7 Tennessee Titans Tennessee Titans The Tennessee Titans are a professional American football team based in Nashville, Tennessee. The Titans compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference South division.

The Titans have been kinda disappointing so far. A team that many thought would win the division is 2-3 and have lost 2 straight games. To a division rival Houston and a mediocre Dolphins team - Randomator

Its amazing how one player changes the dynamic of the whole team Titans, and Raiders suddenly are no longer the teams we fought them out to be instead they are no where above average teams with not so good backups quarterbacks in the game. - htoutlaws2012

They Suck without Mariota. They have not impressed as thought so far - Gametheorysucks

8 Oakland Raiders Oakland Raiders The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football franchise based in Oakland, California. The Raiders began playing in 1960 as a member club of the American Football League; they have been a member club of the National Football League since the 1970 AFL–NFL merger.

Amari Cooper has been quiet so far and beast mode seems to be playing in the shadow of his former self. The whole team seems very mediocre in comparison to last year. I was skeptical on the Chiefs chances to repeat as division champs because of the Raiders but not this year Oakland. It should be Kansas City all the way in the AFC West. - Randomator

I might be too harsh on this team but they fell below.500 to a mediocre Ravens team. They did lose Carr but I still didn't expect them to be so lifeless in comparison to last year. - Randomator

And they're in a division where you can't afford to get too far behind. The defense is still very suspect overall. Carr should be back this week, so they should be fine. Although I'm wondering why Cooper has been so quiet this year? - Ned964

9 Miami Dolphins Miami Dolphins The Miami Dolphins are a professional American football franchise located in the Miami metropolitan area.

Not expecting anything from this team. Not with Cutler at QB - Gametheorysucks

Miami was able to pick up a W with Jay Cutler as QB. The Dolphins are very mediocre and they are in last place in a surprisingly very winnable AFC East - Randomator

I don't see the Dolphins winning the east. Especially after barely beating the Titans by a TD - Randomator

10 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.

Seattle finally found a trace of the Legion of Boom Defense and was able to stop the red hot Rams. Keep it up and they may still have playoff hope. - Randomator

We all, myself included, have been counting on so much from this team ever since their dominating Super Bowl win. Maybe they just plain aren't that good anymore. The defense has lost a lot of depth, and the offense, which used to be built around a strong running game, has definitely regressed. They have the luxury of playing in a weak division so who knows? - Ned964

Good job Seattle! You found your defense now figure out the offense - Gametheorysucks

I still think Seattle is the favorite in the NFC West. It's really their division to lose - Randomator

The Contenders

11 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The fact that they almost beat the Patriots if it wasn't for a few missed field goals - Gametheorysucks

Mediocre - Randomator

This team could either have playoff potential or be in the basement. This team is so inconsistent - Randomator

12 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.

My hometown team, so many of us are used to struggles. Heck, it's almost become comfortable. In the entire existence of this franchise, when the expectations are the highest, that's when you get your heart broken. The Super Bowl is in Minneapolis in February, but you won't see this team there. - Ned964

Not really that surprised. This team is kinda mediocre - Randomator

13 Dallas Cowboys Dallas Cowboys

Dallas has been on the decline recently and almost had Green Bay in the bag. Of course Aaron Rodgers did Aaron Rodgers things and made an incredible comeback (again). I'm surprised at how poorly Dak and Zeke are playing in comparison to last years performances. However they should still make the playoffs - Randomator

I was going to take the angle that Dallas simply needs to run the football and all would be well, but then I looked at their schedule, and it's pretty tough. They get the 49ers this week, and the Giants and Chargers later, but aside from that, it's brutal. They have the Falcons, Chiefs, Raiders and Seahawks and still have 2 games each with the Eagles and Redskins. They had better start rolling quick - Ned964

They lost to Green Bay and lead 21-6. Not surprised but hey on the bright side they didn't blow a 28-3 lead.lol - Randomator

14 Baltimore Ravens Baltimore Ravens The Baltimore Ravens are a professional American football team based in Baltimore, Maryland. The Ravens compete in the National Football League as a member club of the American Football Conference North division.

People thought they would be absolutely terrible but they are in contention in an all the sudden very winnable AFC North division - Randomator

15 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.

Not as good as they were advertised against the Chiefs - Gametheorysucks

Defensively this team its gonna be hard to get through wins while other games they can do it. Watson looked great its just unfortunate now he has a crippled defense to carry on the season. - htoutlaws2012
