Through nine weeks of football, most teams have had their bye and find themselves at the halfway point in the season. Please kindly ignore that some teams have played nine of their 16 games.
This season has already seen its fair share of upsets and surprises. The teams at the top and at the bottom of the NFL standings have moved very little, considering the heightened level of parity we have witnessed thus far. But the teams in the middle have done a lot of moving around.
There are no teams without a win, although the 1-7 Kansas City Chiefs still have not led in regulation this season. And there remains just one undefeated team, the Atlanta Falcons, who I can almost guarantee you will not remain so much longer.
The vast majority of NFL teams (20 of the 32) have between three and five wins, which is exactly where you would expect most of them to be after eight games.
Here are the 10 biggest surprises and headlines through the first half of the 2012 NFL season, in reverse order from 10 to one (you know, to build suspense).
