TOM BRADY
US PRESSWIREBrady threw 4 TD passes in the Patriots' 42-14 win over the Texans.

1. (4) New England Patriots (10-3): Brady and the Pats put on a clinic last night when they whipped up on the Texans.

2. (3) Denver Broncos (10-3): Manning vs. Brady for the AFC Championship? We can hope, right?

3. (5) San Francisco 49ers (9-3-1): The 50-plus yard TD run from Colin Kaepernick is a great example of what the young QB brings to Harbaugh’s offense.

4. (2) Atlanta Falcons (11-2): A bad day vs. the Panthers or a team that was exposed?

5. (6) Green Bay Packers (9-4): The Packers found the running game in the win over the Lions. That could be trouble for the rest of the NFC.

10. (14) Washington Redskins (7-6): Backup QB Kirk Cousins grabbed the spotlight as the ‘Skins kept rolling with the comeback win vs. the Ravens.

11. (7) Baltimore Ravens (9-4): Jim Caldwell gets three games to fix the Ravens' offense before the playoffs start after the club let go of Cam Cameron.

12. (8) Cincinnati Bengals (8-5): That’s a game the Bengals have to close out at home vs. the Cowboys.

13. (15) St. Louis Rams (6-6-1): Don’t forget about the Rams in the NFC Wild Card race.

14. (18) Minnesota Vikings (7-6): Adrian Peterson continues to run over the NFL.

15. (13) Chicago Bears (8-5): Could these be the final three games of Lovie Smith’s tenure in Chicago?

16. (12) Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6): Not the results we expected vs. the Chargers with Ben Roethlisberger returning to the lineup.

19. (17) New Orleans Saints (5-8): A couple of weeks ago the Saints were hot, but its time to prep for the offseason in New Orleans.

US PRESSWIREBrandon Weeden and the Browns have won three straight.

20. (23) Cleveland Browns (5-8): That’s three straight wins for the Browns. Can they knock off the ‘Skins this Sunday?

21. (25) New York Jets (6-7): This isn’t a good football team, but at 6-7 they are still hanging around.

22. (24) San Diego Chargers (5-8): Rivers lit up the Steelers, but the Chargers are still heading towards major change this offseason.

23. (27) Carolina Panthers (4-9): Cam Newton ripped apart the Falcons' defense.

24. (20) Buffalo Bills (5-8): The Bills need to make the QB position a top priority heading into free agency and the draft.

25. (21) Detroit Lions (4-9): The Lions had control of the game at Lambeau, but once again they failed to play consistent football for four quarters.

26. (22) Miami Dolphins (5-8): Ryan Tannehill is quietly having a solid rookie season in Miami.

27. (26) Tennessee Titans (26): A blown lead on the road ended the Titans chances of knocking off the Colts.

28. (32) Philadelphia Eagles (4-9): The comeback win for Nick Foles is big for his development as a pro QB.

29. (28) Jacksonville Jaguars (2-11): Maybe the Jags should have made a stronger run at Tim Tebow.

30. (31) Oakland Raiders (3-10): How about giving Terrelle Pryor some snaps?

31. (31) Kansas City Chiefs (2-11): Blown out by the Browns? Yikes.

32. (29) Arizona Cardinals (4-9): You can’t get beat 58-0 in pro football and expect to be taken seriously.
