      I say your wrong with the comment that on a neutral field the Patriot's would loose to the 6th, 7th, and 8th ranked teams, It is possible but I would put the bank on the Patriots on a neutral field.
      The Patriots have no choice this week but to kick it up and start playing football. (The Offense has not played a game yet, well the last quarter last week could be a sign of the things to come.

        Gotta love how when the Patriots were outplayed and soundly beaten by the Ravens all these analysts said the Pats didn't want to tip their hands and show everything, so they'll have surprises for the Ravens should they meet again in the playoffs - and how nobody said this after the Texans game... Seems like these pundits had to realize maybe it wasn't the Pats holding something back in Baltimore - maybe it was really the best they had?

          Or maybe just maybe, the Ravens were holding them back

            Yeah? Lmao, remember this friend: talking heads aside, those Pats are NOT, I repeat, NOT the class of the AFC. Everything and all goes thru Baltimore. Consistent on both sides of the line, and they have proven themselves in the big meetings so far. New England? Not so much. My story, Ravens Ravens.

                    When the playoffs come around" teams will change up the way they play Ravens" Lamar will have to hit some deep shots to win game's I'm not saying he can't but we will see......

                      That was a Lamar 8 games into his NFL career. He's evolved more in 1 season than any QB I've ever seen. Remember, this is chess, not checkers.

                      Why wouldn't they have done this already? Do they like eating these L's that are making a playoff push harder on them? I don't think you watch Bmore games. I can't blame u, if you're not a fan.

                    Hawks were winning early in the year " without a pass rush.. Now there pass rush is getting scary good...... Don't want to play Hawks with the D coming around and penny Carson combo" and of course Dangeruss........

                      Let’s see, it’s a sad day in the NFL when a 10 and 2 season is a bad season. If that were the case, 27 other teams have horrible seasons thus far. Silly sportscasters. 😆😅😂🤣😂😅😆

                        Do not give the Patriots any incentive to play better we need them to lose they are bad for the game a lot of fans have quit watching the NFL just because they know that they're going to be in the Super Bowl every year they're in the weakest division historically in the NFL

                                    49ers are 8-0 against pocket QBs and 2-2 against running QBs. Only one that could gash them is Kamara potentially. Niners have the top ranked pass defense only giving up a whopping 138 yards a game and lead the league in Sacks. Plus Dee Ford is back this weekend. Game will be close no doubt.

                                    Please fire Sims! His position on things are about his hate for the pats. Sims isn’t creditable. Both him and his Dad are idiots. Look up leadership in the dictionary. You 2 don’t understand that. That’s why brady has 6 rings. Maybe you should suck on that sims!

                                      As a Chiefs fan, I think it’s finally time for Mahomes to exorcise the demons this week against the Pats. If the Texans can beat them, they should be able to as well. I mean, Alex Smith actually was 2-1 against Brady and oddly enough, AS has proven to be better than the MVP Mahomes against Brady....which kinda rubs me a weird way. That said, Mahomes better not lose this one, if we wanna look like legit contenders like last year, we gotta show the league we can do what the Ravens and Texans did and beat the Pats. I really do think that Brady has finally started to show his age, but he also has no one to throw to this year besides Edelman.

                                        To me the Chiefs as a whole, need to exercise their demons but especially their Defense. Mahomes put up 2 big games against the patriots top 5 Defense last year, and the offense wasn't the problem. They had 40 points one game (43-40), and 31(37-31) the other game. The problem since Mahomes took over, has been that Kansas City's Defense can never get stops. We saw it in the exciting game vs the Rams last year (54-51) as well. That offside's in the Playoff game last year. The defense has made some small strides this year, but can they still count on them when it matters? Hard to win when the Chiefs were 31st in Total Defense last year, and Still in the 20's this year. Mahomes can only do so much...

                                        @Cam Thompkins With the Patriots Defense (still ranked 2 in total defense), I'm going to disagree. Mahomes is clearly a better QB then Smith (all numbers agree) and I know that's now what you are saying, but Mahomes put up big points against the Patriots last year, if he had any other Defense then they would have won last year. Against a great Pats defense last year, Mahomes in the Playoff game put up 31 points/300 yards/3 Td's (against a Defense that was shutting down great QB's). In the game earlier last year Mahomes had 40 points/450 yards/4 TD's. The defense gave up 43 points, and then 37 points....it's hard for any QB to win, with that happening.

                                        Smith is a better QB in my opinion if you were playing the patriots. He was so efficient. Mahone's always looking for the big play which is great but some teams you gotta play a certain way an Mahomes needs to grow. Brady was right he doesn even know yet what he doesn know

                                        What about this year? Pats star players are getting old and they haven't added any offensive talent. Pats can be beaten by multiple teams this year. No SB appearance this year.

                                      Ravens are very good BUT they will not win the SB or may not make it.The mediocre passing is why plus they need to tighten defense. Maybe next year not this one and I am a fan.

                                        Yeah he's only 2nd in passing TD and 4th in QB rating. Very mediocre. Also has about 2/3 the snaps of other QBs because of dominant TOP. Sat an entire game worth of 4th qtrs also skews the stats. Being ahead all game running the ball doesn't leave you much incentive to pass.

As long as we stay creative on playcalls and Lamar keeps his football IQ and awareness high I got us winning it all if we stay healthy

                                          @Hockey2323 as much as I want to agree with you. Last year they lost 5 games on the road to losing teams and still won the SB. With Bill I sadly never count that old cook out.

                                          Cam Thompkins he can actually throw the ball downfield. If Brady didn’t have a top 10 defense his team would be very bad.

                                          As a chiefs fan I agree. Indy and titans showed the recipe. If the chiefs defense can keep a team to 50 percent on 3rd downs they win. But 3 and 5 or less their defense sucks

                                          When they played the Saints they didn't have a pass rush, and the offense couldn't get through a series without a penalty. The Seahawks have gotten better every week ... and the Saint ain't.

                                          You mean before they had their safety? Before Jeron Reed come off suspension? Before Ansah was healthy and Clowney had learned the defense? And the game still involved some flukey plays for them to win by less than a touchdown? You can't compare a team early in the season and say that's what they are now. Teams play hotter and colder in the NFL. It's a long season, but the question is, how is a team playing going into the playoffs? Seattle is obviously playing a lot hotter than the early season version that struggled against the Bengals. This team just beat SF, Philly and the Vikings. That's the team you compare to right now. You can argue either way with those two, but please don't act like there isn't a valid argument for either of those teams being ahead of the other.

                                          @Natanel Arnson Thank goodness it isn't college where perceived strength can get you a playoff spot or not. The teams that deserve it, will get a shot. And in the NFC, there's a whole handful of teams that could get hot and win it all. Heck, there could be a 12-4 wildcard, so it's no stretch to say a wildcard might win it in the NFC this year.

                                          @Erick Young Fair point. The Niners feel stronger to me after barely losing to the Ravens, but you can't underestimate Russel Wilskn. And Seahawks have gotten better.

                                          @Kedria Jones Sure. That's why using early season matchups as proof is not very helpful. What has a team they done lately? That means more, provided they didn't play so awfully early on that they can't make the playoffs. But also, matchups can be deceiving. Teams strengths and weaknesses can just line up differently. That's why any NFL team can come up with a surprise win or loss at some point during the season. In the end, you just have to make it to the games that count, and to figure out how to win -- ugly or not.

I'd even say, it makes more sense to say, let's see them beat the Seahawks, because so far, only the Seahawks have won heads-up.

                                        49ers down to 4 doesn't make sense to me. They looked every bit as good as the Ravens, just a very close game and one or two poor calls.

                                          @Josh Peck but it's also about what have you done lately. A loss recently even to a good team where you where you're close still hurts and if you do want to still go with your argument, just remember the Saints and Ravens lost to the Falcons and Browns respectively so that hurts their cases for being in front of the Seahawks.

                                          @__dv91 I agree with your ranking. I think Ravens, 49ers, then either the Saints or Seahawks at #3. My whole family are Saints fans so I've watched all the games since Brees returned. They've been winning but they've also been stalling in the 2nd half. I'm not sold on their offense and I think the 49ers will eat a pocket-passing team alive.

                                          I'm a Hawks fan and I'm torn on where to rank them. On paper they aren't nearly as good as the other teams, but somehow they keep finding ways to win. A lot of people think it's luck, but 10-2 and beating the 49ers and Vikings requires a lot of luck. RW is the most clutch player I've ever seen, and PC somehow manages to coach his way out of a hole time after time.

                                          Anyway, I digress. tl;dr - I agree with your rankings :)
