1. Broncos (8-1): Who would have knew that the #1 offense in 12th man would be atop the power rankings. Willis McGahee leads the charge for this potent offense, but how the Broncos cope with the trade of Peyton Manning is to be seen. So far, they haven't skipped a beat and rookie HC Drew has his team moving in the right direction 2. Ravens (8-1): This Ravens team was awarded a few early wins due to the replacement referees, but they have made the most of their time since the real refs had entered the scene. They don't dominate any particular category, but have a stout run defense and pound the rock well with Ray Rice. 3. Packers (8-1): Green Bay has 32 forced turnovers (2nd most in the NFL), and they have this unknown slapdick at QB named Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are playing their best ball right now and have a huge lead as the #1 seed in the NFC. 4. Colts (7-2): Rookie TY Hilton has taken the league by storm. He has over 700 yards receiving and has become rookie QB Andrew Luck's favorite target. We could be looking at the next Peyton Manning/Marvin Harrison connection in Indy. 5. Cardinals (6-3): Powered by their defense, HC Curtis has his LBs attacking and stifling opposing offense. This NFC juggernaut leads the league in sacks, but has a young QB in John Skelton. Look for them to rely on their defense to keep winning them games. 6. Chiefs (5-3): HC Javy boasts the leagues top defense combined with a 90% redzone efficiency. Id' call that a recipe for success. 7. Seahawks (7-3): Newly acquired Peyton Manning gives a Seahawks team that relied on their defense a newfound hope. The Seahawks lead the league in turnovers forced and have the #2 defense. To compete with the big boys, they will need to step up their offensive production. 8. Lions (5-3): HC Taylor is enjoying the success he's having with the Lions. Megatron and Stafford are having an excellent season, but the defense has been stellar as well. Look out for this team as a dark horse in the NFC. 9. Titans (6-3): There is nothing flashy about this team, they just get it done. Chris Johnson has been running great, but has found the endzone only once. Jake Locker has been steady and defense has proved stingy enough to keep the Titans in every game. 10. Falcons (5-3): The defense powers this team. Sean Weatherspoon (9 sacks) and John Abraham (8 sacks) have been abusing quarterbacks this season. HC Rod is in a dogfight for the division lead with the Buccaneers, Panthers, and Saints.
