While Indianapolis, Cincinnati and Washington are thinking playoffs, Arizona, San Diego and Philadelphia are just hoping to win a game. Dallas is who we thought they were and Baltimore's opponents keep letting the Ravens off the hook. See where your team stands in this week's rankings.

32. Kansas City Chiefs (1-10): The Patriots scored five touchdowns in the second quarter on Thanksgiving. That's one more than Kansas City has scored in the the past seven games. -RT

31. Oakland Raiders (3-8): Oakland SHOULD be able to end its four-game losing streak this week against the Browns. However, the Raiders defense SHOULDN'T be allowing as many points as it is this season. -AD

30. Philadelphia Eagles (3-8): Overpaid and underachieving – the Eagles are the NFL's Boston Red Sox of the past two years. -RT

29. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-9): Chad Henne hadn't started a game in over a year – hadn't won a game as a starter since December 2010 – but his 261 passing yards and two touchdowns were able to end Jacksonville's seven-game losing streak. -AD

28. Tennessee Titans (4-7): What's there to say about a team that can't beat Jacksonville? -RT

27. Carolina Panthers (3-8): With his couple of scores on Monday night in Philadelphia, Cam Newton became the first quarterback in NFL history with 20 rushing touchdowns in his first two seasons. -AD

26. San Diego Chargers (4-7): THAT guy in Madden who always shuts off the PlayStation after you just converted a 4th-and-forever and quickly realizes defeat is Norv Turner. -RT

25. New York Jets (4-7): Fireman Ed has officially hung up his helmet and called the quits. Why hasn't Rex Ryan done the same with Mark Sanchez? It'll take a miracle *cough, Tim Tebow, cough* but the J-E-T-S are likely D-O-N-E. -AD

24. Cleveland Browns (3-8): I don't care who was at quarterback for the Steelers, eight turnovers in one game is impressive. -RT

23. Arizona Cardinals (4-7): There are a couple of quarterback controversies in the NFC West and this isn't a good one. Sorry, Larry. -AD

22. Buffalo Bills (4-7): C.J. Spiller is averaging 6.7 yards per carry, but what good is that if they only give him the ball 15 times a game? Fantasy owners and now wide receiver Stevie Johnson is upset with the play-calling. -RT

21. Detroit Lions (4-7): The NFL calls it an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, I call it being robbed. Detroit was that close from winning its first Thanksgiving Day game since 2003. -AD

20. St. Louis Rams (4-6-1): Steven Jackson is averaging 107 yards in the past three games and to no surprise, the Rams look like a different ball club. -RT

19. Miami Dolphins (5-6): It looked like a scene out of a Buffalo Wild Wings commercials with the sprinklers going off in the middle of the third quarter in Miami, but a 43-yard Dan Carpenter field goal kept the Dolphins alive in the playoff picture. Unfortunately, three of their last five games are against New England (twice) and San Francisco. -AD

18. New Orleans Saints (5-6): Even after a difficult loss to San Francisco, the Saints are still in the thick of things for the final wild-card spot. -RT
