1 Giants · Trends 1
You have to give Eli Manning credit for playing last week, but now he has to go to the Superdome and play that tough New Orleans defense. The best NFC team (for now) will be decided in that game.

2 Colts · Trends 2

The scary thing is they really haven't been healthy yet. The bye week will help in that area. Peyton Manning is on his way to another MVP.

3 Saints · Trends 3

Their bye came at a time they probably didn't want it since they were playing so well. It will be interesting to watch that defense matched up against that Giants offense.

4 Vikings · Trends 4

They showed against St. Louis that they are veteran enough to not have letdowns. Now they get two tough ones, against Baltimore and then Pittsburgh. We'll know how good they are in three weeks.

5 Broncos · Trends 5

Hard to believe they are here. But I believe now. Just a warning: Be careful Sunday at San Diego. That could be an ambush. The Chargers are desperate.

Good list. I'd have the Broncos above the Vikings based on who've they've beaten, but it's whatever.

I think when your top win is against a .500 GB team, you probably shouldn't be ranked above a team that's beaten 3 teams with a winning record.

The Broncos will be 6-0. The Chargers aren't that good.

As I stated in the Fox rankings. I believe this week the 5-0ers should be ranked ahead of us. Not after we beat the Giants though :hihi:

Most of these have us in the top 3. This game is by far the best of the week and will be seen as a preview to the NFC champoinship game. This is where we see what we're made of.

Amazing the Colts aren't #1... if I were a betting man I'd say that Peyton's team would take Eli's team to the woodshed if they were to play a game this week. indy is on fire.

The Colts don't have a single win over a .500 or better team.

Personally, I think they are really good, but they haven't really proven anymore then anyone else to deserve a number 1 rankings.

Technically they are the least impressive undefeated team based on their schedule.

You say that like the Giants have any better of a schedule.

Going based off of "who have they beaten", the Broncos should be #1.

But we all know they should be 4-1 right now, so I think that is holding people back from ranking them higher.
