Wow.

The Philadelphia Eagles looked like the best team in the league heading into their matchup against Denver last Sunday. Then, they went out an hung 51 on the Broncos’ defense and came out of Week 9 looking like the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl.

The Broncos haven’t had 50 or more points scored on them since 2010 and haven’t given up more than 34 in the last three seasons. Philadelphia quarterback Carson Wentz, who threw for four touchdowns against Denver, is looking like the front-runner for the league MVP award at the season’s midway point as well.

Here’s a look at our 1-32 pecking order heading into Week 10.

Ties will go to the team that receives the majority of higher rankings from our panel.


Burns | Jurecki | Lapinski | Marotta | Morgan
