With seven games left to go, you can rest assured that the Top 12 is going to be interesting each week. Why? Well, for starters, the margin between team #1 and #7 is razor thin, which means the slightest thing, such as an embarrassing loss to the Rams, can send a team like the Colts plummetting down the board. Add to the fact that we have a #1 vs. #2 matchup on tap this week, followed by a #3 vs. #6 and a #4 vs. #9, and you know you're in for some fireworks! And this is just the start of it...
#1 - Denver Broncos
After a long wait, the Broncos will finally get their chance to reclaim their spot atop the AFC West. Games don't get much bigger than this in Week 11.
Last Week: 1 Change: 0 Record: 8-1 Next Game: vs. Chiefs
#2 - Kansas City Chiefs
I can almost guarantee you that either Denver or KC will be the #1 team next week. Well, unless Denver wins and Peyton Manning's ankle subsequently explodes...
Last Week: 4 Change: +2 Record: 9-0 Next Game: @ Broncos
#3 - San Francisco 49ers
The Niners didn't look great this past week, but it was one bad half against a decent team. Don't want to punish them too harshly when they've generally looked dominating the past few weeks.
Last Week: 2 Change: -1 Record: 6-3 Next Game: @ Saints
#4 - New England Patriots
With both Indy and Cincy losing, the Patriots really couldn't have had a much better bye week. A not-to-be-overlooked Panthers team is next on tap. Glad the Niners got the wake up call instead of the Patriots who have to be focused now.
Last Week: 5 Change: +1 Record: 7-2 Next Game: @ Panthers
