New England top the rankings this week after that huge win over the Green Bay Packers. You don't beat a powerhouse like the Packers and fail to top the rankings. The Chiefs aren't far behind after continuing their fine form with a convincing win over the Browns. Kareem Hunt and Patrick Mahomes again shone in that one. The Chargers go between those two teams, however, following a huge win on the road against the Seahawks. The Titans are also high following a powerful performance on the road against the Cowboys. The Dolphins are the lowest of the winning teams after managing just 13 points against the Jets. The Bills look a real mess right now and they are bottom after being blasted 41-9 by the Bears. The Jets aren't far behind, but the Raiders are bottom-but-one after that empty performance against the 49ers. The Broncos and the Browns put in the most respectable performances of the losing AFC teams this week.
The Chiefs still stand atop the AFC. Patrick Mahomes has been incredible to watch and is definitely in the hunt for MVP this year. Patriots are in the second spot after an impressive win against Aaron Rodgers. Bengals, Steelers and Ravens still looking like very strong teams and all in my top 5 list. Chargers are quietly becoming a real contender if they keep up what they've been doing. Houston and Tennessee also move up the list after posting good solid wins. Texans are getting hot heading into the second half of the season. Denver continues to slide after poor handling of games by the coaching staff. Buffalo and Oakland continue to live at the bottom of the barrel as they continue to do nothing week after week. Its very apparent the NFC is a much better conference.
This is becoming the same old story but if you haven't heard Kansas City and New England are still really good. Houston keeps on winning (barely) ,  and Oakland seems like they've given up. Remember when Sam Darnold looked like the answer for the Jets at qb? yea me neither. Denver head coaching change collision course and the Steelers are back to looking like the Steelers.
The top tier is becoming much more clear as Pittsburgh, LA, and Houston look more consistent. Baltimore struggles to stay afloat in AFC North. Tennessee and Denver have a long road to get back into the playoff hunt, but seem to have the talent to do it. Oakland and Buffalo are fighting for the number one overall pick in next year's NFL draft.

My passion is the NFL. Particularly the Denver Broncos. I was born into a Broncos family and have followed them since I was 3 years old when I met John Elway. I have made football and the Broncos a large part of my life. I love everything about the game.
