Of the seven remaining undefeated teams, five of them have the look of either a playoff team, a Superbowl team or at least a team that can get a lot of wins this season:
5. Arizona Cardinals – Winning a game with a backup QB who hasn’t thrown an NFL pass in nearly 4 years is a tough task against any NFL team. But between the offense, defense and special teams, the Cardinals may be the most complete team in football.
4. Buffalo Bills – This team has a gutty win over a dominating offensive unit in Chicago and a dominating win over a gutty Miami team. If they can beat San Diego next week they might become serious division title contenders.
3. Cincinnati Bengals – Defenses has been great against tough passing offenses. Losing AJ Green for any period of time will hurt but the team has too much depth on offense to collapse like other teams that lose a star receiver.
2. Carolina Panthers – The Panthers won their first game of the season without Cam Newton and the second game without DE Greg Hardy. That’s a by-product of great coaching and Ron Rivera could win HC of the Year again if they win the division title again.
1. Denver Broncos – Peyton Manning continues his assault on the record books but is not on quite the record setting tear through the first two weeks – he only has 6 TDs. But unlike some of the other teams on the list, the Broncos first two wins both came against 2013 playoff teams – whom they dispatched with relative ease.
