Giants are still the most balanced team in the NFL, and I actually feel they have the best offense. Not like they were tearing up the regular season last year either...
We don't really have 1 or 2 teams that are above the rest this year unless you believe Atlanta is really as good as their record says. Instead we have 6-7 teams that are all great and pretty close to one another. Any one of those teams can go deep in the playoffs and win the Superbowl, imo.
Atlanta has come back to the pack the last few games and are on the verge of taking a really bad loss. Bye is actually coming at a good time for them. They aren't as good as their record.
I think the Giants and Packers may go on a run now and will probably both have a strong record when they play each other late in the season. Ravens and Texans still look very strong to get the top 2 seeds in the AFC. Pats can't afford to drop any more games they "should" win.
