These are the teams that can do little more than play spoiler, unless they are in the NFC West.
32 (31) Carolina Panthers: Hey Panther fans look at what Colt McCoy is doing then look at what Jimmy Clausen is doing, sorry is that salt in the wound?
31 (32) Buffalo Bills: The Bills finally win one! They must have been the best 0-8 team in league history before their win over the lions.
30 (30) Dallas Cowboys: This win for the Cowboys makes me feel bad for Wade Phillips. Where was this heart and desire all season? For that, the Cowboys get no movement.
29 (27) Detroit Lions: Ouch, a loss to the Bills? A week after losing on a missed Ndamukong Suh extra point? Tough time to be a Lions fan. Well, not tougher than any other time.
28 (26) Cincinnati Bengals: Five turnovers for the Bengals? But I ordered half a dozen!
27 (25) Arizona Cardinals: You would think that with the schedule that the Cards play this year that they could at least win eight. Guess someone forgot to tell them that.
26 (29) Denver Broncos: The Broncos did what? 49 points on a decent Chiefs team? Maybe the Broncos are onto something with giving this Tim Tebow guy a sniff. You know, unless Orton throws four touchdowns again.
25 (28) San Francisco 49ers: If I were a betting man I would be intrigued with the 49ers odds of making the playoffs right now. With Troy Smith in they just seem like a hungrier team.
24 (18) Washington Redskins: Pretty sure it is a rule that if you start a game down 35-0 you automatically drop six places in a power poll.
23 (24) Seattle Seahawks: It must be tough coaching a team with a smaller payroll than you are used to. Right Pete Carroll?
22 (22) Minnesota Vikings: Waiting patiently for the breaking news that Brad Childress has been fired...
21 (21) Saint Louis Rams: With Bradford at the helm, this team has a bright future despite the loss to the 49ers.
