Are the undefeated Chiefs a legit Super Bowl contender, or is this a paper tiger headed for heartbreak of a Lin Elliott (1995) or Elvis Grbac (1997) nature from past top-seeded Kansas City teams? The Broncos are a nightmare matchup, but at least the Chiefs are catching them at the right time and match up well with the rest of the AFC.

The Jets are the odds-on favorite for the sixth playoff spot in the AFC. They're built on the same formula every Rex Ryan Jets team has been: defensive and special teams excellence, offensive inadequacy, and inconsistency.

Based on DVOA and other factors, we can say with conviction we are experiencing the best 0-8 team (Tampa Bay) and the least competitive team (Jacksonville) since the merger. But the 2008 Lions may want to keep the Faygo in the fridge if they think one of these teams will join them in celebration at 0-16.

After his historic day against Dallas, Calvin Johnson's on pace for the best season in terms of Win Probability Added by a non-quarterback since 1999. Is it about time we start giving the receivers the respect they deserve for the value they bring to these pass-happy offenses?

Remember early in the season when it looked like the 49ers were struggling? They've quietly reestablished themselves as contenders, and help for their receiving corps and pass rush could be on the way.

The Bengals are a well-built team that has proved they can win battles of attrition, but games like Sunday must become more common from Andy Dalton if they're going to seriously be considered NFL royalty.

Andrew Luck may not be setting the league on fire like Dan Marino in 1983-84, but his consistent performances in situational football put him on a path to greatness that Peyton Manning once walked in Indianapolis. But is Luck walking it faster?
