In each tier, the teams aren’t ranked.

  • Cincinnati Bengals
  • New York Jets

Explanations

  • The Jets have won their last two games– and both teams have winning records. They’ve earned enough respect from me to be in a regular tier.
  • I’ve dropped Miami a tier because of their QB situation.
  • What has happened to Arizona?
  • I know the Browns lost to the Jets, but I’ll give them a COVID pass and not drop them a tier.
  • The NFC East has seen a late season surge and I’m pretty surprised.
  • Update: Chicago is surging late.
