Every NFC East team moves up, while the Broncos and Chiefs sneak up on the Chargers, the Titans take a tumble, and the Steelers take over first place in defense despite losing. We also bring you the first week-to-week graph of 2007, comparing the Pats to the last two teams to make a run at the perfect season.

And then, there was only one. With the Colts hit by injuries, the Pats stand head and shoulders above the rest of the NFL. On the other side, one team has forced us to ponder the worst DVOA ratings ever. Plus: The long-awaited "squib to Hester" analysis.

The Pats and Colts play the game that DVOA expected, while the Steelers and Cowboys score prime time blowouts to give us a dramatically dominant top four. Actually, it is a dominant four-and-a-half, because the Titans defense is climbing into rarefied air.

The Patriots have officially slipped the bonds of reality, the first team ever to have a DVOA over 70% later than Week 5. The Colts are the best team of the past dozen years other than the Patriots. Maybe the hype is warranted this time? Plus: San Diego returns to the top five and Tennessee's defense widens its lead.

Once again, the Patriots and Colts are 1-2 in this week's DVOA ratings, and they are closer than you might think. In fact, the difference between them comes down to one unit: special teams -- and, in particular, one very ironic position. And speaking of special teams, what is Seattle doing at number one?

This week: The top six stay the same, San Diego and Carolina jump forward, and the NFC East rules while the NFC West is lousy again. We also continue to track where the Pats and Colts stand in the race for "best DVOA ever."

The historic dominance of the Colts and Patriots continues, but two 53-yard field goals can't keep the Cowboys from falling off the pace -- and into fourth place behind Pittsburgh.

New England blows away the league with the greatest start of the DVOA Era. Dallas and Indianapolis are right behind, and... wait... is that Arizona in the top ten? Oh, will the wonders of DVOA ever cease?

Hey, remember when the projection system said that Tampa Bay would win the NFC South and New Orleans was a one-year wonder? Remember how we all assumed the numbers were incorrect? Whoops. Plus: Historic starts in New England, Pittsburgh, and Dallas.

New England and Pittsburgh reign supreme, while last year's two miracle teams sit at the bottom. This week's (very extended) commentary looks at past teams who defied their projections early, to find out what history says about hope in Houston and pessimism in Philadelphia. Note: DEN, OAK, PHI, WAS now fixed.
