3. Broncos (8-1; No. 4): This could be the last week Peyton Manning is able to play with that bad ankle.
4. Saints (7-2; No. 7): It took Rob Ryan a bit longer than five minutes to find his next job, but he found the right one.
5. Patriots (7-2; No. 6): Tom Brady could be having flashbacks to Super Bowl XLII and XLVI as he watches tapes of the Panthers’ pass rush.
6. Colts (6-3; No. 3): The best way to avoid a fourth-quarter comeback from Andrew Luck is to blow him out before the end of quarter three.
7. 49ers (6-3; No. 5): It’s a good thing Colin Kaepernick sold out while there was still something to sell.
8. Lions (6-3; No. 10): Maybe defenses aren’t double-teaming Calvin Johnson because they realize it doesn’t matter.

12. Packers (5-4; No. 9): Adversity, thy name is Scott Tolzein.
13. Cardinals (5-4; No. 17): Does anyone realize this team is over .500 through 10 weeks?
14. Cowboys (5-5; No. 12): Everyone realizes this team isn’t over .500 through 10 weeks.
15. Eagles (5-5; No. 19): If they could win their home games, they’d be 9-1.
16. Bears (5-4; No. 13): If Josh McCown can pull the Bears back into playoff contention, why would the team bring back Jay Cutler?
17. Dolphins (4-5; No. 15): If that’s how they perform when galvanized, we’d hate to see how they’d play if they weren’t.
18. Chargers (4-5; No. 16): At least they didn’t blow a 24-0 lead this time.
19. Titans (4-5; No. 18): There are far more interesting ways to get everyone fired than to lose to the Jaguars at home.
20. Browns (4-5; No. 20): Mid-November relevance is a beautiful thing in Cleveland.

30. Buccaneers (1-8; No. 30): With more games like last night’s, could Greg Schiano actually save his job?
31. Vikings (2-7; No. 31): They’ve finally won a game this year in the United States.
32. Jaguars (1-8; No. 32): With the Bucs and Vikings also winning, the Jags were able to get a “W” without undermining their crack at the first overall pick in the draft.
