Top 5 NFL Teams (Week 6) Alright, I might make this a weekly thing if I can remember to/feel like it. Very simple stuff. List your top 5 best teams in the NFL, adding your reasoning if you so choose. 5. San Diego Chargers - Took a tough loss to Baltimore in Baltimore, which makes it easier to forgive. Philip Rivers is playing very well and the defense is just absurd. Plus with weapons like Gates and Tomlinson, the offense puts up points too. My worry is when they play a defense that is as good or better than their's (Baltimore game) or when they play an offensive that's too good for their defense (Indy, maybe). In both situations, I don't know if Rivers can carry them to a win. 4. Baltimore Ravens - Took a tough loss to Denver in Denver and about 453544 inches of rain. The defense is probably second best in all of football, full of playmakers as well as tough bastards (who allegedly stab people) and McNair is doing a beautiful job of playing caretaker in the offense. Their weakness? The running game. Jamal Lewis and Mike Anderson are both decent backs, but they have been getting stuffed and when that happens, McNair has to WIN games rather than not screw them up. 3. Philadelphia Eagles - Have you seen this team play? Their only loss for the fourth quarter letdown to the Giants and it seems to have fired them back up. Donovan McNabb has the best numbers for any QB in football, Brian Westbrook has the most touchdowns rushing or receiving in football and Dante Stallworth has missed two games with injury! Lito Sheppard is back (and running back picks 102 yards for touchdowns) into a secondary that is one of the best in the league even without Sheldon Brown. And with Trent Cole filling in for Javon Kearse on the defensive line, the team has barely missed a step. 2. Indianapolis Colts - I said that they'd have to lose in order to not be number one, but when you have scares against the Jets and the Titans, you get dropped. Even with the scares though, they're undefeated and Peyton manning is winning the games when he has to. It's kind of scary to think about what the team will be like once they're fully clicking, especially with how well Joseph Addai has been running out of the backfield. Their weakness is their defense though, mostly the secondary. It's been victimized in past games and might be the lone weak spot. Still, if the offense starts clicking, no one can beat them in a shootout. 1. Chicago Bears - Best team in football, period. 5-0 after playing the Vikings in a tough division game and the supposed best NFC team (the Seahawks), with 156(!) points for and 36(!!!) points against. Denver has the fewest points allowed in the league with 34, but they've only put up 49 of their own. The Chicago defense is just absurd. They've run roughshod over every offensive line put up in front of them, they cause turnovers like crazy and can win games if the offense can put up 10 points. However, the offense has been putting a lot more up than that with Rex Grossman playing extremely well, the emergence of Bernard Berrian as their deep threat (with Mushin Muhammad and the TE Desmond Clark as excellent possession receivers) and the running game chugging along. Their schedule is nothing to worry about as well. With their only tough games coming in a three week span (at Giants, at Patriots, at Jets), they could well finish the season with one loss (or maybe less). There's mine. Discuss!!
