Green Bay Packers
The Pack are first in points for (37) and their line is actually blocking—only giving up seven sacks. Granted, that may not be too impressive, but ask any Packers fan every time Rogers is not on the ground, it is a good thing to see. The Packers are so impressive that they even let Matt Flynn throw a pass...literally one, and it was an interception. The questions isn't even how good they are, it's who can beat them.
Houston's hiccup to New Orleans was predicated on the injured Arian Foster and I guess giving up 23 points in the fourth quarter didn't help either. However, the Texans may be the most well-balanced team in the NFL right now. Offensively they are eighth in total points scored (27) and fourth in points against (17.5). Houston may have a huge problem if Andre Johnson is out for a while, but so far...so good.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints only loss came on opening week of the season to the Packers . Since then, they have outscored their opponents 93-56 and Drew Brees continues to put up big numbers. The Saints are second in total yards (454) and are ninth against the run (94). They are playing Saints football, which is just letting Drew Brees sling the ball down the field.
They are unbeaten and hold an impressive eight game winning streak dating back to last season. The Lions are doing all the little things right—blocking and not committing turnovers—which is leading to big things, such as wins and a potential playoff birth. Both sides of the football are playing at a high level right now and as long as there aren't any big injuries, the Lions should continue to play at a high level.
The Bills started off playing better than any team, until their disappointing loss to the Bengals this past weekend (20-23). However, their offense continues to be the driving force behind their wins. Ryan Fitzpatrick and Fred Jackson are putting up big numbers and the Bills are probably the most well-balanced offensive team in the league. Whenever a team can run and pass, the more likely a defensive coordinator will get fired.
And the winner is...
