The December 15 edition:

1. Panthers, 13-0 (1): From 7-8-1 to 13-0. Is this a great league or what?

2. Cardinals, 11-2 (3): Memo to Eagles DBs: Cardinals have league-high 59 pass plays of 20-plus yards.

3. Patriots, 11-2 (4): Gronk is back, and Patriots have AFC homefield advantage in their sights.

4. Broncos, 10-3 (2): Broncos have scored 17 or fewer points in four of their last five games.

5. Seahawks, 8-5 (6): Seahawks appear to have regained their mojo. Have outscored last 3 opponents, 112-43.

6. Chiefs, 8-5 (7): Alex Smith's interception streak is over, but the Chiefs' win streak isn't.

7. Steelers, 8-5 (8): Steelers notched their fifth straight 30-plus point game.

8. Packers, 9-4 (10): Eddie Lacy has three 100-yard rushing performances in the last 4 games.

9. Vikings, 8-5 (9): Teddy Bridgewater threw for career-high 335 yards in 3-point loss to Cardinals.

10. Bengals, 10-3 (5): Can A.J. McCarron fill Andy Dalton's shoes? Uh, no.

11. Jets, 8-5 (11): With 3 games left, they're still very much in the playoff hunt.

12. Raiders, 6-7 (18): Managed to turn 8 first downs and 126 net yards into a 3-point win over the Broncos.

13. Eagles, 6-7 (21): Need to beat the Redskins and Giants to win this poor excuse for a division.

14. Redskins, 6-7 (24): Kirk Cousins has the highest completion percentage in the league (69.2):.

15. Bills, 6-7 (12): Rex Ryan's team leads the league in penalty yards and stupidity.

16. Giants, 6-7 (22): They need to beat either the unbeaten Panthers or the Vikings to remain alive going into Week 17 rematch with Eagles.

17. Texans, 6-7 (15): They've scored more than 24 points just twice all season.

18. Bucs, 6-7 (14): Have the unenviable distinction of being the first team to score less than 20 points v. Saints.

19. Colts, 6-7 (13): Were outscored by Jaguars in the second half, 42-3. Get well soon, Andrew.

20. Bears, 5-8 (17): Difference between victory and defeat the last 2 weeks has been 3 missed FGs by Robbie Gould.

21. Falcons, 6-7 (16): Their 26 giveaways are the second most in the league.

24. Rams, 5-8 (27): Todd Gurley exploded for 140 yards and 2 TDs v. Lions.

25. Lions, 4-9 (19): Calvin Johnson had one catch for 16 yards in loss to the Rams. How is that possible?

26. Saints, 5-8 (31): Saints have a league-worst 114.2 opponent passer rating.

27. Cowboys, 4-9 (23): Guess who will be drafting a quarterback in the first round next April?

28. Ravens, 4-9 (26): GM Ozzie Newsome has a lot of work ahead of him in the offseason.

29. Browns, 3-10 (32): With Seahawks, Chiefs and Steelers left, you can write down 3-13 next to their name.

30. Chargers, 3-10 (30): Perfect symmetry: a 10-3 loss for a 3-10 team.

31. 49ers, 4-9 (25): It's hard to make the Browns look good, but the Niners managed to do it.

32. Titans, 3-10 (28): The good news is they won't need to take a quarterback with their top 5 pick. ​
