25. Baltimore Ravens (25)

The Ravens followed up a 3-0 start with a four game losing streak.  Maybe a bye was just what they needed to get back on track.  Pittsburgh coming to town isn’t exactly the greatest thing in the world for a struggling team—especially if Big Ben makes his return from injury.

Two wins in a row is nice, but beating the Browns isn’t anything to write home about.  Go into Miami and beat the suddenly hot Dolphins and perhaps you are on to something.

27. Chicago Bears (30)

Where in the world did that come from?  Good Cutler was on display Monday Night in his return from injury.  Maybe the Vikings just weren’t ready for it.  In any case, the Bears looked like a much improved team—the Vikings, not so much.

28. Indianapolis Colts (21)

Outside of Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, and Adam Vinateri, the Colts are just an incredibly flawed roster at nearly every position.  Luck will win them a few games, but a division title seems out of reach unless things drastically change.
