There's little doubt about which teams are serious Super Bowl contenders at the halfway point of the NFL season.

You have to start with the undefeated Atlanta Falcons, with the 7-1 Texans and Bears not too far behind. 49ers fans may say that they are indeed the team to beat. However, at 6-2, they have shown some vulnerability.

One team that is starting to find its stride is the Green Bay Packers. Aaron Rodgers is now A-Rodg after a slow start.

Speaking of slow starts, the Steelers are now rounding into form, as they had a big win in New York against the Giants. Pittsburgh is now 5-3 and is breathing heavily down the first-place Ravens' backs.

Okay, so which are the teams that some may argue are contenders or pretenders? Check out our video above, and let us know in the comments below the teams you think are pretenders and which are contenders.
