As we head into week six of the NFL season there is only a single thing we know for sure... The Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL.

From there, well let’s get through it.

The Undefeated

Kansas City Chiefs (5-0)

No other team can be up here, none. They have it all clicking, they are healthy and they look better every week.

One Loss Wonders

The Packers are the best team if healthy and yet they can’t stay healthy. Yet, if you asked me who I would pick in January out of all these one loss teams, I am taking the Packers... Then the Falcons.

2. Green Bay Packers (4-1)
3. Carolina Panthers (4-1)
4. Atlanta Falcons (3-1)
5. Philadelphia Eagles (4-1)
6. Denver Broncos (3-1)

Two Losses and No Clue

This is the toughest grouping right now. You have the Patriots and then a bunch of teams who have looked really bad and really good, it just depends on what game you watch.

7. Detroit Lions (3-2)
8. New England Patriots (3-2)
9. Washington Redskins (2-2)
10. Seattle Seahawks (3-2)
11. Los Angeles Rams (3-2)
12. New Orleans Saints (2-2)
13. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)
14. Buffalo Bills (3-2)
15. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2)
16. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2)

Two Losses and I still don’t buy them

Outside of the Vikings, who just may be cursed, I don’t buy any of these teams right now. For the Vikings, I just don’t know if they can maintain through health, and yes I know they blew out the Bucs a couple weeks ago.

17. Minnesota Vikings (3-2)
18. Baltimore Ravens (3-2)
19. Miami Dolphins (2-2)
20. New York Jets

Trending Up

Yes, the Cowboys lost to the Packers, but they lost Aaron Rodgers and a fantastic comeback, the Bengals are in a bad AFC North and the Colts may get Andrew Luck back soon (yes I know they beat the Cardinals, but you’ll see why in a minute).

21. Dallas Cowboys (2-3)
22. Cincinnati Bengals (2-3)
23. Indianapolis Colts (2-3)

Injury Issues

The Texans have a young, exciting quarterback, but lost their top two pass rushers on defense, the Raiders have been awful on defense and need Derek Carr back on offense and the Cardinals, well we know their issues.

24. Houston Texans (2-3)
25. Oakland Raiders (2-3)
26. Arizona Cardinals (2-3)
27. Tennessee Titans (2-3)

The single wins

A tale of two teams.

28. Los Angeles Chargers (1-4)
29. Chicago Bears (1-4)

The Winless Wonders

The 49ers are close the last three weeks, while the Giants are a complete mess. Speaking of complete messes, your Cleveland Browns.

30. San Francisco 49ers (0-5)
31. New York Giants (0-5)
32. Cleveland Browns (0-5)
