Aaron NaglerNFL National Lead WriterSeptember 23, 2012

So, who's the best team in the NFL now? The 49ers are still in the discussion, but, man did the Vikings shock the NFL world by upsetting San Francisco 24-13.

Christian Ponder, along with some help from Adrian Peterson and Kyle Rudolph, methodically beat down the heavily favored 49ers. Is Atlanta for real? The team made a lot fans believers with the Falcons' trouncing of the Chargers.

On the losing side, the Lions defense made Jake Locker look like a lock for the next MVP, as he torched Detroit's secondary for 378 yards and two touchdowns. Nate Washington also looked like a superstar, finishing with 112 yards receiving on the day. Speaking of MVPs, "Matty Ice" is looking like one as he made the Chargers defense look like big losers in Week 3.
