9. Chicago Bears

The Chicago Bears have been able to be competitive thanks to the strong play of their defense. However, they won’t win many more games if Mitch Trubisky only attempts seven passes in a game. Eventually he will need to start making some plays.

10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay has been a major disappointment this year. They are talented enough to be competing for a playoff spot, but might be out of the race if they don’t string together some wins.

11. Green Bay Packers

The Packers find themselves in a tough spot with Aaron Rodgers out of the lineup. They need Brett Hundley to quickly adjust and help them win some football games.

12. Tennessee Titans

Tennessee is another team that is really disappointing. They expected to be competing for the AFC South title but are instead falling out of the playoff picture.

13. Miami Dolphins

We will quickly see how whether or not Jay Cutler was the problem with the Miami Dolphins offense. Matt Moore is a talented backup quarterback but will now need to perform on a week to week basis. This stretch seems like it could determine the outcome of the Dolphins season.

14. Carolina Panthers

Carolina’s offense looked awful against the Chicago Bears, but that is a defense that has only given up three touchdowns in the past three weeks.

15. Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers have won three games in a row including two against division rivals the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. It’s really hard to figure this team out, but they are hoping to keep the winning streak going.

16. Denver Broncos

Denver has a good enough defense to win the division, but the inconsistent play at quarterback could derail their playoff hopes.
