Pittsburgh and Baltimore have battled for AFC North supremacy for two decades.
1\. Kansas City Chiefs Still the best team in football, despite their blip against the Raiders. Their Patrick Mahomes-led offense can tear any team apart and their defense is solid enough. The improvement to the running game makes them adaptable and allows them to win in all conditions. 2. Pittsburgh Steelers The best defense in the league, plenty of experience and some weapons on offense. The Steelers are outperforming expectation and are the only unbeaten side in the NFL. 3. Baltimore Ravens Although the Ravens have lost this year, it was to the Chiefs and there is no shame in that. Baltimore are still some way off last season’s level but have enough on both sides of the ball to beat nearly all opposition. 4. Seattle Seahawks Yes, they lost to Arizona on Sunday but the Seahawks offense still looks remarkably strong. Russell Wilson has been dominating games all season. They need to improve their defense quickly, however, if they want to go deep into the postseason. 5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Tampa are a very well-rounded team. Their defense has been impressive, notably dismantling Green Bay’s offense in a dominant win. On Sunday, Tom Brady showed he can still throw the ball with real power and precision. A team on the rise. 6. Tennessee Titans The Titans have built on their playoff run last year, once again looking a serious outfit. They were beaten by the Steelers on Sunday but have claimed some impressive scalps already in other weeks. Derrick Henry is starting to find his best form which is ominous for the rest of the league. 7. Green Bay Packers The Packers and Aaron Rodgers have been in supreme form this season, bar the loss to Tampa. Green Bay will be hoping it is just a blip. However, they also suffered similar losses to the 49ers last year, including in the NFC Championship game. They face San Francisco in two weeks time, a huge moment in their season. 8. New Orleans Saints There seems to be a lot of negativity surrounding the Saints but they still could be a contender. New Orleans are 4-2, with a number of tricky fixtures coming up. It is time for them to prove they are a team to be reckoned with.
