5. Detroit Lions (6-2): The Lions are coming off a bye and will be in Los Angeles this week to take on the Chargers.

8. Cincinnati Bengals (5-3): Quarterback Joe Burrow is rolling again, and it showed in the victory over the Bills. Burrow completed 31 of 44 passes for 348 yards and two touchdowns. The Bengals only rushed for 54 yards, but who needs a running game when the quarterback is this hot. Next: -6.5 vs Houston Texans – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U 47 (ATS: 4-3-1 – O/U: 3-5)

9. Cleveland Browns (5-3): Starting quarterback Deshaun Watson was back in the lineup for the Browns, who really didn't need him in a shutout of the Cardinals, 27-0.

Next: +6 at Baltimore Ravens – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 4-3-1 – O/U: 4-4)

10. San Francisco 49ers (5-3): The 49ers are coming off a bye and are currently on a three-game losing streak.

Next: -3 at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 45.5 (ATS: 4-4 – O/U: 5-3)

11. Seattle Seahawks (5-3): The Seahawks were embarrassed on Sunday in Baltimore, 37-3. The Ravens had 515 yards in total offense, to 151 for the Seahawks. The Ravens had 29 first downs to just 6 for the Seahawks. Head coach Pete Carroll should just burn the game film from this disaster. Next: -6 vs Washington Commanders - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 45.5 (ATS: 4-3-1 – O/U: 3-5)

12. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-3): The Steelers have perfected the art of winning ugly, with their latest ugly win over the Titans at home, 20-16. The Steelers are 29th in scoring average per game at 16.6 points per game, a stat that will come back to haunt them if they cannot improve their offense performance. Next: -3 vs Green Bay Packers – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 5-3 – O/U: 1-7)

13. Buffalo Bills (5-4): The Bills are suddenly struggling on offense, averaging just 20 points per game over the last five games.

Next: -7.5 vs Denver Broncos - Mon, Nov. 13 – O/U: 47 (ATS: 3-6 – O/U: 3-6)

16. Minnesota Vikings (5-4): The Vikings added quarterback Joshua Dobbs to the roster via trade this past week and due to an injury, he was forced to play after just five days on the roster.

Next: -2.5 vs New Orleans Saints – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 41 (ATS: 5-3-1 – O/U: 2-7)

15. New Orleans Saints (5-4): The Saints are all alone in first place in the NFC South after defeating the Bears, 24-17. It would be laughable if quarterback Derek Carr led the Saints to a division title in his first season with them, something he failed to do with the dysfunctional Raiders in nine seasons. Next: +2.5 at Minnesota Vikings – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 41 (ATS: 2-6-1 – O/U: 2-7)

16. Los Angeles Chargers (4-4): The Chargers got eight sacks and an 87-yard punt return for a touchdown from rookie Derrius Davis in their 27-6 victory over the Jets.

Next: +3 vs Detroit Lions - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 48.5 (ATS: 4-4 – O/U: 2-6)

17. Houston Texans (4-4): Rookie Quarterback C.J. Stroud threw for a rookie record 470 yards and five touchdowns in leading the Texans to a 39-37 hard fought victory over the Buccaneers. With 46 seconds remaining and trailing 37-33, Stroud drove the Texans 75 yards to a touchdown, scoring on a 15-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Tank Dell. Next: +6.5 at Cincinnati Bengals – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U 47 (ATS: 4-4 – O/U: 3-5)

18. Atlanta Falcons (4-5): The Falcons lost a close game to the Vikings, 31-28 on Sunday. They have decided to stick with quarterback Taylor Heineke for another week. Heineke did not play that badly, completing 21 of 38 passes for 268 yards with one touchdown and one interception, adding 20 yards on the ground. Next: -1.5 at Arizona Cardinals – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 43.5 (ATS: 2-7 – O/U: 3-6)

19. Indianapolis Colts (4-5): The Colts broke a three-game losing streak with a 27-13 victory over the Panthers on the road.

20. New York Jets (4-4): The Jets hit rock bottom on Monday Night, losing to the Chargers 27-6, in an offensive performance that can only be described as dreadful. While the Chargers certainly had something to with that, the Jets offensive line is a mess. Quarterback Zach Wilson was sacked eight times and will not survive much longer behind this line. Next: -1 at Las Vegas Raiders - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 36.5 (ATS: 4-3-1 – O/U: 3-5)

21. Las Vegas Raiders (4-5): The Raiders celebrated the firing of head coach Josh McDaniels with their best performance of the year, easily defeating the Giants, 30-6.

Next: +1 vs New York Jets - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 36.5 (ATS: 4-5 – O/U: 2-7)

22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5): The Buccaneers extended their losing streak to four games after losing another heartbreaker, this time to the Texans, 39-37. The last three losses have been by six points or less. Next: -1.5 vs Tennessee Titans - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 5-3 – O/U: 2-6)

23. Tennessee Titans (3-5): Rookie quarterback Will Levis was unable to help lead the Titans past the Steelers in a Thursday Night game, but Levis did throw for 262 yards. Levis was named the starting quarterback for the rest of the season. Next: +1.5 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 4-4 – O/U: 2-6)

24. Washington Commanders (4-5): The Commanders beat the Patriots on the road and are still in a position to make the playoffs in the NFC, despite the trade of their top two defensive lineman in a move that looked like they were giving up on the season. Next: +6 at Seattle Seahawks – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 45.5 (ATS: 4-4-1 – O/U: 4-5)

25. Denver Broncos (3-5): The Broncos coming off a bye and will be rewarded with a Monday Night game in Buffalo against the Bills. The victory of the Chiefs in Week 8 was important for head coach Sean Payton, who is dealing with a roster that needs a makeover and will need time to get the Broncos moving in the right direction. +7.5 at Buffalo Bills - Mon, Nov. 13 – O/U: 47 (ATS: 2-5-1 – O/U: 4-4)

26. Green Bay Packers (3-5): The Packers did not need to be great, because they were playing the Rams without quarterback Matthew Stafford. The Pack held the Rams to 187 yards in total offense and cruised to an easy 20-3 win at Lambeau Field. Next: +3 at Pittsburgh Steelers - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 4-4 – O/U: 3-5)

27. Los Angeles Rams (3-6): The Rams lost to the lowly Packers in Green Bay, 20-3. The Rams had 10 first downs and 187 yards in offense, in an offensive performance that reminded Big Ten viewers of the Iowa Hawkeyes. To help add a spark to the offense, the Rams signed quarterback Carson Wentz, the 2nd overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Wentz was a second team All-Pro selection in 2017. Next: Bye – Following week: N/A vs Seattle Seahawks – Sun, Nov. 19 – O/U: N/A (ATS: 4-4-1 – O/U: 3-6)

28. Chicago Bears (2-7): The Bears offense had five turnovers in a 24-17 loss to the Saints. The Bears lead the NFL in giveaways with 18 and have an NFL worst -9 turnover ratio. They could end up with two top five draft picks in next year's draft and currently are an estimated $67 million under the salary cap, according to spotrac.com. The Bears management better get this right in the offseason. Next: -3 vs Carolina Panthers - Thu, Nov. 9 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 3-5-1 – O/U: 6-3)

29. New England Patriots (2-7): The Patriots lost to the Commanders at home, and now have a 1-4 record at home. The Pats are averaging 15 points per game, which is 31st out of 32 teams. They will bring their exciting brand of offensive football to Munich, Germany this week, where they are the playing Colts in what is being called a home game for the Pats. Next: +1.5 vs Indianapolis Colts – Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 43.5 (ATS: 2-7 – O/U: 3-6)

30. New York Giants (2-7): Timing is everything in life. If the Giants had played the Raiders a week earlier, they probably beat that dysfunctional group of Raiders. But this group of Raiders was celebrating being free from former head coach Josh McDaniels and had a four-quarter party at the expense of the Giants, 30-6. Next: +16.5 at Dallas Cowboys – Sun, Nov. 19 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 2-6-1 – O/U: 1-8)

31. Carolina Panthers (1-7): Quarterback Bryce Young hit rock bottom on Sunday, throwing two pick-six interceptions in a 27-13 loss to the Colts. Both interceptions were returned for touchdowns by cornerback Kenny Moore. The Panthers are close to rock bottom, with only the Cardinals in their way. Next: +3 at Chicago Bears - Thu, Nov. 9 – O/U: 38.5 (ATS: 1-6-1 – O/U: 3-5)

32. Arizona Cardinals (1-8): The Cardinals have the worst record in the NFL after another loss, this one a shutout loss in Cleveland to the Browns, 27-0. Quarterback Kyler Murray, a two-time pro bowl selection, has been activated and will start this Sunday. Murray suffered an ACL injury in December of 2022 and has not played in an NFL game in 11 months. Next: +1.5 vs Atlanta Falcons - Sun, Nov. 12 – O/U: 43.5 (ATS: 4-5 – O/U: 5-4)
