Perhaps the highlight of the week was the Rams – Saints game, where Drew Brees and company took LA out of the ranks of the unbeaten. Atlanta played perhaps its best game of the year, and Dallas, by some accounts, played its worst game of the year. AFC North teams are good this year, and it shows in their high SOS rankings (useful once the playoffs arrive). The largest beneficiary of all the turmoil at the top has been Kansas City, which by now is the strongest of all the NFL teams, as measured by SRS. Teams stronger than their records include Chicago, Baltimore, Denver, and yes, the New York Giants.
