Dallas let a win against the best team in the league slip out of their fingers, and the Jets may have a legitimate quarterback. Perhaps the biggest surprise of my NFL power rankings this week is that I don't have the Jags at 32. I'm just that disgusted with what I've seen from the Giants.
32. New York Giants (0-5): Yes. The New York Giants really are this bad. At least try to show some heart on Thursday night, guys.
31. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-5): They couldn't hold a lead against St. Louis, but at least the Jags put up a fight on the road. That's more than I can say about the G-Men.
30. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4): Insert your favorite “At least TB didn't lose this week” joke here.
29. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4): An off week isn't going to save the 2013 Steelers. They are in rebuilding mode right now.
28. Minnesota Vikings (1-3): I've been one of many suggesting that Minnesota would be better off with a different starting quarterback. I'm not sure Josh Freeman is the right man for the job, though.
27. Washington Redskins (1-3): Fans of the 'Skins have plenty of reasons to be upbeat. Their team is only one game out of first place.
26. Carolina Panthers (1-3): Cam Newton getting sacked nearly twice per quarter isn't going to cut it. The Panthers don't look all that good when they aren't playing against the Giants.
25. Atlanta Falcons (1-4): This is shocking to me. Atlanta really can't beat even average teams right now, even when playing at home.
24. St. Louis Rams (2-3): St. Louis struggling against the Jags at any point says a lot. I continue to be disappointed with the Rams.
23. Buffalo Bills (2-3): There's no nice way to say it. Buffalo desperately needs a QB right now.
22. Houston Texans (2-3): Houston is what I thought the team was: Not as good as advertised.
21. Philadelphia Eagles (2-3): The Eagles are one of four below average NFC East teams. Philadelphia beating the lowly Giants means little.
20. San Diego Chargers (2-3): They are up. They are down. They are the Super Chargers, and they appear to be destined to finish 8-8 at best.
19. Oakland Raiders (2-3): Terrelle Pryor is looking better with every quarter played. Expect for the Raiders to match the play of their QB if the trend continues.
18. Arizona Cardinals (3-2): The big news for the Cards, other than their winning record, is that Larry Fitzgerald seemed to be 100 percent.
17. Dallas Cowboys (2-3): Yes, he had a great game, but Tony Romo folded when it mattered most. That's the story of his career thus far.
16. New York Jets (3-2): Now that's how you rally back from a forgettable game. Geno Smith had his coming out party on Monday night.
