1. Giants

Will Eli stay healthy? They have a tough one coming on the 18th.

2. Colts

Do not take the Titans lightly.

3. Saints

No flaws yet.

4. Vikings

Favre is doin' alright. Their D needs to figure out opposing TEs.

5. Broncos

Up this far? Say hello to the Broncos D.

6. Jets

Rookie QB can only take them so far. These guys will fade.

7. Patriots

Never count these guys out. I'm not sure if Brady will have it this year.

8. Ravens

Good all-around team.

9. Eagles

Need McNabb to be healthy..but doesn't this happen every year for these guys? They usually come on strong down the home stretch.

10. Falcons

Good game coming up against the Niners.

11. 49ers

Good team. They just need Gore back soon. Having Crabtree wouldn't hurt either.

12. Bengals

I thought they'd be ranked lower by now.

13. Steelers

Injuries and an obvious running game missing.

14. Packers

Just ask Jared Allen what this team needs.

15. Bears

Need some work on the defense.

16. Chargers

17. Jaguars

These guys should be able to get a couple of wins in the next few weeks.

18. Cowboys

At least they have a nice stadium.

19. Cardinals

20. Texans

21. Miami

22. Redskins

23. Seattle

24. Bills

25. Titans

26. Panthers

27. Lions

28. Raiders

29. Browns

30. Chiefs

31. Buccaneers

32. Rams
