    Just using this as a way to track the teams throughout the season based on DL rankings. Will start updating it once the rankings are set


    Week 2:

    1. Denver Broncos (1-0)
    2. Indianapolis Colts (1-0)
    3. Cleveland Browns (1-0)
    4. Kansas City Chiefs (1-0)
    5. San Francisco 49ers (1-0)
    6. Houston Oilers (1-0)
    7. Houston Texans (1-0)
    8. Tennessee Titans (1-0)
    9. Brooklyn Bills (1-0)
    10. New York Giants (1-0)
    11. Chicago Bears (1-0)
    12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0)
    13. Philadelphia Eagles (1-0)
    14. Oakland Raiders (1-0)
    15. Detroit Lions (1-0)
    16. New England Patriots (1-0)



    -AFC rules the top 10 early in the season; with 7 of the top 10 being from the AFC.

    -Defending Super Bowl champions getting little love early on, starting off the season as #9 in the rankings.

    -49ers, Oilers and Texans looking to rebound off disappointing seasons last year, have the league believing in them early on, as they all rank in the top 10 coming off seasons where none of them made the playoffs.

    -AFC West is represented well to start; with 3 of their teams ranking in the top 14. On the other hand, the NFC West and AFC North have only 1 team each in the top 16.

    -AFC still rules the top 10; but the NFC earns an extra spot this week leaving the split at 6-4.

    -Bills and Titans fall out of the top 10 and find themselves in the mid-20s; while the Patriots and Bucs also fall out of the top 16.

    -Dolphins, Vikings and Bears all get massive bump ups in the rankings after sim wins.

    -NFC North is well represented this week with 3 teams in the top 16. AFC North and East on the other hand have only 1 representative in the top 16.

    2. Houston Oilers (3-0) +3
    3. Indianapolis Colts (3-0) -1
    4. Oakland Raiders (3-0) +4
    5. London Black Knights (2-1) +8

    14. Denver Broncos (1-2) -8
    15. New Orleans Saints (2-1) --
    16. Seattle Seahawks (2-1) +2


    -NFC has taken control of the top 10 (finally) as 7 of the top 10 are NFC teams including the top 2.

    -Despite winning back to back GOTWs, the Colts actually slip in the rankings and find themselves in 3rd this week.

    -The Black Knights, Bears and Lions all find themselves ahead of undefeated teams this week with their 2-1 record.

    -The biggest climbers this week are the team from London; rising 8 spots in the rankings while the Browns and Broncos have both fallen 8 spots.

    -The Broncos still make the list despite their losing record (1-2); while the Patriots (2-1) barely miss the cut at #17.

    Week 5:

    1. Oakland Raiders (4-0) +3
    2. San Francisco 49ers (4-0) -1
    3. Houston Texans (4-0) +4
    4. Indianapolis Colts (4-0) -1
    5. Detroit Lions (3-1) +3
    6. Philadelphia Eagles (4-0) +3
    7. New York Giants (3-1) +3
    8. Miami Dolphins (2-1) +3
    9. Chicago Bears (2-2) -3
    10. Houston Oilers (3-1) -8
    11. Seattle Seahawks (3-1) -5
    12. New England Patriots (3-1) +5
    13. Denver Broncos (2-2) +1
    14. London Black Knights (2-2) -9
    15. New Orleans Saints (2-1) --
    16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2) +5


    Notes:

    -The Bay area reigns supreme this week as Oakland and San Fran hold down the top two spots.

    -The voters continue to not like the Colts; as they go down the rankings for the 2nd straight week even though they are still undefeated.

    -The biggest movers in the rankings are trending downwards; as voters immediately knocked the Oilers out of the top 5 after their first loss of the season, while the Black Knights also get knocked out of the top 5 following a sim loss.

    -The CPU Giants, Bears, Seahawks and Saints continue to stay in the top 16. CMON USERS!

    -Eagles are the lowest ranked undefeated team at #6. Voters don't have much confidence in the team from Philly.

    Notes:

    -Voters continue to not believe in the Eagles, ranking them #7 and by far the lowest of the 4 remaining undefeated teams.

    -The Oilers bandwagon filled up quickly after last week's win, pushing them up 6 spots into #4; the biggest movers of the week.

    -The Steeler love around the nation continues; as they go up 5 spots to 11 and are the highest rated team with a losing record.

    -The rankings are starting to settle in halfway through the season; as the top 5 hold their positions for the first time this season.

    -Other than positions 12-14; everyone else in the top 16 has either held onto their ranking or rised up.

    -The biggest movers this week are the Giants, who dropped down 8 spots as the CPU is starting to lose control of the team.

    Week 9:

    2. San Francisco 49ers (6-1) +2
    3. Indianapolis Colts (7-0) --
    4. Philadelphia Eagles (7-0) +1
    5. Houston Oilers (5-2) -3

    14. London Black Knights (4-3) -1
    15. Denver Broncos (3-5) -3
    16. New York Giants (4-4) -2

    Notes:

    The top 5 teams stay as is; with some movement between the teams with the biggest being the Oilers falling from 2 to 5 after a loss to the Buccaneers.

    2 undefeated teams left in the league; as the Colts and Eagles find themselves at 3 and 4 on the rankings respectively.

    Bay area bias lives strong with the voters; as the Raiders and 49ers hold the top two spots this week.

    The biggest risers this week are the Bears, who climbed up 9 spots to find themselves at #8 this week. Biggest fallers this week are the Texans, who at 5-3 find themselves at #13.

    -No comment on the Eagles dropping down a spot...

    3. Indianapolis Colts (7-2) +1
    4. Oakland Raiders (7-2) -2
    5. Cleveland Browns (7-2) +1
    6. Houston Oilers (6-3) -3

    14. Denver Broncos (4-5) +2
    15. Atlanta Falcons (4-5) -2
    16. Miami Dolphins (5-4) -7

    Notes:

    -The 49ers' loss to the Knights didn't do much to their ranking as they hold onto the #1 spot.
    -Eagles jump up 3 spots thanks to the Colts, Raiders and Oilers all losing last week.
    -The Browns find themselves in the top 5 after a string of wins, sitting at #5 with a 7-2 record.
    -The Bears and Jaguars had the highest climbs of the week as they both jumped 7 spots; the Dolphins drop 7 spots as they go in the opposite direction.

    -CPU Buccs and Bears continue to do well.

    Week 12:

    1. Philadelphia Eagles (10-0) +1
    2. San Francisco 49ers (8-2) -1
    3. Cleveland Browns (8-2) +2
    4. Indianapolis Colts (8-2) -1
    5. Oakland Raiders (7-3) -1
    6. London Black Knights (7-3) +3
    7. Chicago Bears (6-4) --
    8. New England Patriots (7-3) +2
    9. Houston Oilers (6-4) -3
    10. Jacksonville Jaguars (6-4) +1
    11. Atlanta Falcons (5-5) +4
    12. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-4) -4
    13. Houston Texans (6-4) -1
    14. Pittsburg Steelers (5-5) +5
    15. Denver Broncos (4-6) -1
    16. Minnesota Vikings (5-5) +2

    Notes:

    -Eagles take top spot this week as they switch places with the 49ers.
    -Even split between AFC and NFC this week at 5 a piece in the top 10.
    -The Black Knights have quietly put themselves in great position to overtake the 49ers for the division, as they hold the tiebreaker and are currently only one game back of the team from San Francisco.
    -The Oilers bandwagon is emptying fast; as the team finds itself at 6-4 and facing competition from the 3 other CPU owned teams in the division.
    -The Vikings find themselves in the top 16 for the first time this season (i think) as Bob looks to fight for the division title agains the CPU Bears.

    Week 13:

    1. Philadelphia Eagles (11-0) --
    2. San Francisco 49ers (8-3) --
    3. London Black Knights (8-3) +3
    4. Indianapolis Colts (8-3) --
    5. Cleveland Browns (8-3) -2
    6. Houston Oilers (7-4) +3
    7. Chicago Bears (7-4) --
    8. New England Patriots (8-3) --

    12. Pittsburg Steelers (6-5) +2
    13. Houston Texans (7-4) --
    14. Denver Broncos (5-6) +1
    15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-5) -3
    16. Buffalo Bills (6-5) +4

    NOTES:

    -The slide of the Oakland Raiders continues; as they have been in free-fall since losing their undefeated start to the season.
    -The Eagles and 49ers keep their positions at 1 and 2; however the 49ers loss this week to the Colts might open the door for their division opponent to sneak into that position.
    -The Chicago Bears look set to win the division the way things are going; as the CPU team has played well without their coach and GM.

    16. Seattle Seahawks (8-5) +1


    Notes:


    -Top 4 hold onto their spots with the Patriots cracking into the top 5 for the first time this season.
    -CPU Falcons, Bears, Seahawks and Texans still above .500
    -If any CPU teams win their division there needs to be a CMON man.
    -NFC West looks like it will come right down to the wire with both the Knights and 49ers fighting for the division with the CPU Seahawks 2 games back.
