Hump Day: Loser Rankings-- Teams seem to be playing spoiler

1. Detroit Lions- They got blown away by the Saints on Sunday. They now get to go to Lambeau Field to play the Packers.

2. Kansas City Chiefs- They lost a close one to the Dolphins. It was indeed an epic battle, but it wasn't enough.

3. St. Louis Rams- They blew a close one at home to the 49ers.

4. Cleveland Browns- We welcome Cleveland to this week's edition. They have lost five straight games. This team has fallen off the face of the earth, which is conveniently where we are located.

5. Cincinnati Bengals- The Bengals are playing good football right now. They've won two straight games. However, they're still in the top five because they're 3-11-1. Sorry Bengals fans!

Now time for the regular season standings:

1. Detroit Lions- 68 points- Clinched First Place

2. Cincinnati Bengals- 42 points- Clinched Second Place

3. Kansas City Chiefs- 35 points

4. St. Louis Rams- 30 points

5. Oakland Raiders- 12 points

Analysis: This is the official top five for the season. The Raiders will officially have the top spot wrapped up. Seattle has won two straight games, so it seems unlikely we'll see them on the top five for next week. I still have that deal for Detroit if they want to win a game, so it's not too late. The battle for now seems to still be 3rd place. Who knows what will happen? The Rams get the Falcons who are fighting for the division and possibly the second seed in the NFC. Enjoy the final week of the season.
