13. Baltimore Ravens (17)
For the first time all season, Joe Flacco was big-time. This may be the first time he has performed at this high of a level since the playoffs in 2012 en route to a Super Bowl title. The Ravens and Steelers are both playing good football right now. It’s likely to come down to their last head-to-head match up for the division title.
14. Tennessee Titans (14)
Last we saw the Titans, they were winning—something they’ve done often the past two months. This offense is really clicking, and has now had two weeks to prepare for the World Champion Denver Broncos to come to town. This is a strength on weakness match up in favor of the Titans. The Titans are one of the best teams running the ball, and the Broncos are one of the worst at defending the run. The Titans are also a poor defense, facing a weak offense. It will be an interesting match up to say the least.
15. Washington Redskins (11)
The Redskins had best get back on the win train—quick. They’ve now been passed by the white-hot Buccaneers, and have other teams breathing down their neck as well. A date with the Eagles, who have cooled significantly, should help right the ship.
16. Arizona Cardinals (19)
The Cardinals are smack dab in the middle of what appears to be a lost season. While it is highly unlikely they make the playoffs, the bright spot of the year is second year running back David Johnson. What this guy has done this season has been nothing short of spectacular.
