Need any further proof that the NFL is unpredictable as ever?
The two teams with the best record in the league, the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans, had to scratch and claw their way to home wins over a pair of teams that were struggling, to say the least.
The Arizona Cardinals brought a five-game losing streak to the Georgia Dome, while the Jacksonville Jaguars were in the midst of a six-game skid as they arrived at Reliant Stadium.
While Atlanta needed a fourth-quarter touchdown to deal the Cards their sixth loss in the row, Gary Kubiak’s club came from way back in the final minutes of regulation and eventually took care of business in overtime.
No matter how many times you say it, there are no cakewalks in this league (although a team may wind up winning going away).
So here we go with this week’s grades, as each team has now played 10 games. Always remember that these marks are based on a number of factors, not just wins and losses and final statistics.
And as usual, these marks are for this week’s contest and not the team’s overall performance in 2012.
For those worried that their teams aren’t making their grade point average, there’s still some time before finals week.
Note: Bye teams (Vikings, Giants, Seahawks, Titans) will not be included in this slideshow.
