NFL Week 6: Top 10 Teams

by Wayne Root

1. Buffalo Bills, 4-1 
There’s currently a gap between the Bills and everyone else. So it's only right to put the Bills at No. 1 after a convincing win in Kansas City. Josh Allen has the offense humming and this team looks like its the best in the AFC right now. Difficult MNF game this week. 
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 4-1 
Remember Tom Brady's inexplicable loss on "Thursday Night Football" against the Bears last year? Yeah, he probably does too. However, Brady 
continues to play ridiculous football for his age and the Bucs' lock in at No. 2

 3. Arizona Cardinals, 5-0 
The last unbeaten team still has work to do to get to the very top of the list.
The Cardinals weren’t great against the 49ers last week…but won. The defense has come around and was flying all over the field against the 49ers and if that's sustained, the Cardinals look like a legitimate threat in the NFC.

 4. Los Angeles Rams, 4-1 
Are the Rams even the best team in L.A? The gap is getting narrower. The Rams got a little bit of a break with Russell Wilson getting hurt, but anytime you leave Seattle with a win, it's a good thing. They’re a double digit favorite this week. 

 5. Los Angeles Chargers, 4-1
What a game against the Browns. Justin Herbert is crazy good and the Chargers are for real. They don’t like to punt or kick field goals and get huge smiles at any fourth and whatever. They”ll go for it from anywhere. They need to play a powerhouse team and win both sides of the ball to prove a few things. 

 6. Dallas Cowboys, 4-1 
Putting up 44 on the Giants is good. Maybe not great but more than expected. The Cowboys have been enjoying a soft schedule the last few weeks and they have another game they should win Sunday at New England. Both sides of the ball are in harmony. 

 7. Baltimore Ravens, 4-1
 The Ravens were awfully sleepy early against the Colts, but woke up in a big way. The Ravens discovered their passing game, by necessity. That could take the offense, and the team, to new heights. Lamar Jackson had an all-time performance.

 8. Cleveland Browns, 3-2
They could be 5-0. After Sunday, they actually could be 3-3. The Browns tried to out score the Chargers and forgot about playing any kind of defense. They'll face a tough test this week against The Gunslinger from Arizona. 

 9. Green Bay Packers, 4-1 
Their all-star kicker had three misses before getting lucky to even get another opportunity from the Bengals. 
It certainly wasn't pretty, but the Packers survived in Cincinnati. They can seize control of the NFC North with a win at Soldier Field Sunday.
10. Kansas City Chiefs, 2-3
 The Chiefs are still very talented, but they seem stuck in the classic Super Bowl hangover. The good news is they have Patrick Mahomes and can probably get out of it. After Mahomes big payday, does KC have any money left for defense? Who would have predicted they’d be under .500 after five weeks. 
They’re coming after you!!
11. Cincinnati
12. Tennessee 
13. New Orleans 
14. Seattle 
15. Denver
