10. Tennessee Titans (3-0)
“They may have limitations but they have an identity. They have won 6 of their last 7 games dating back to last year. They’re 15-0 when Derrick Henry has 100+ rushing yards. Once Ryan Tannehill left Miami and Adam Gase he’s been pretty darn good. He’s a top 15 quarterback if you look at the numbers since he arrived in Tennessee. Stephen Gostkowski went 6 for 6 last weekend and their special teams will not hurt them.”
9. Los Angeles Rams (2-1)
“Their next two opponents are the Giants and Washington, and outside of a bad call at the end had Buffalo beat. I am concerned that they got pushed around for the first half of the game, but the Bills defense is excellent. They trailed 28-3 and were out of it, but they have the third best offense, and third best rushing offense in the league. This is what McVay is, for all of the multiple sets and movement in the passing, he’s really a power running coach like Kyle Shanahan. They are running the football and have three different backs to choose from.”
8. Buffalo Bills (3-0)
“Buffalo is one spot ahead because they beat the Rams. The story here is Josh Allen. Great job by the coaching staff – his first 15 games in the NFL he completed 55% of his throws with a passer rating in the 60’s, but he is now a Pro Bowl level quarterback in his last 15 games. He’s not only 10-5 but his QB rating is over 100. This is a very good staff that has developed a talented young quarterback who looks like a very young Ben Roethlisberger.”
7. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0)
“This is the best front seven in football. You can’t run on them -- best run defense in the league, and they have 15 sacks, so good luck passing. This is a team who could give Kansas City some push back. They don’t have to bring people to get pressure on you, and their offense, which always drives me nuts because they leave a lot on the dance floor, had no turnovers last week. I still have questions of them being buttoned up in big games but this defense with a veteran staff and a veteran quarterback is a top 7 team.”
6. Green Bay Packers (3-0)
“I think they’re better at quarterback and not as good defensively as Pittsburgh. They have not had a turnover this season so they’re really smart and efficient. I like the fact that Aaron Rodgers completed balls to eight different targets last week. They’re the highest scoring team in the NFL. I’d love to see them be a little less dependent on Aaron Rodgers so that’s why I have them at six.”
