Explanations

  • I dropped Baltimore a tier but I think their struggles are only because of injury problems. Once they are healthy, I think they quickly rise back up.
  • To me, the contenders tier consists of only serious threats to win the Super Bowl. At this point, I think it’s only Kansas City and Pittsburg. The teams in the good tier are teams that lack serious flaws but simply aren’t as good as teams in the contenders tier. And teams in the above average tier are good but have one or two fatal flaws (for example, Baltimore has injuries and a limited offense and Indianapolis has a good QB that makes critical mistakes too often).
  • I had to drop Miami. I think they have a high ceiling but this week showed they can also have low lowes. Too inconsistent.
  • I’ll raise Tennessee if they can beat Indianapolis this week.
