Check out the rankings going into Week 4:
Scott: Peyton Manning may have already locked up the MVP award. Will anybody be able to stop Denver's offense?
Jake: Still cooking even with the loss of All-Pro offensive tackle Ryan Clady.
Scott: Clearly the class of the NFC. Nobody has been able to penetrate their secondary.
Jake: Russell Wilson has the offense going, while the D is gaining confidence.
Scott: The story in New Orleans has been their stout defense. Oh and they have that Brees fellow.
Jake: Pressure from Rob Ryan’s defense is making it tough for other teams to stay with the Saints.
Scott: Brady's rookies are improving. Offense will only get better with the impending return of Gronk and Amendola.
Jake: Aaron Rodgers and the Packers won’t lose two weeks in a row. Well, I guess it is a bye week for Green Bay, so technically they can’t win either.
Scott: Mr. Fourth Quarter struck again in Pittsburgh. Trestman's voodoo is working wonders on Cutler in 2013.
Jake: Losing Henry Melton may hurt, but the front four wasn’t getting to the quarterback that often with him in the lineup.
Scott: Forced Rodgers into an unheard of two-interception game. Bernard looking like the real deal.
Jake: Great Week 4 test for the Patriots as they head to Atlanta on SNF.
Scott: The defense isn't messing around in Kansas City. Have wrecked havoc on opposing quarterbacks all season.
Jake: A win over New England could be a major statement by Matt Ryan and the Falcons.
Scott: Can the upstart Dolphins make it back-to-back victories over NFC South opponents with the Saints looming on Monday Night Football?
Jake: San Francisco keeps losing and now the team’s best pass rusher is in rehab.
Scott: Badly need this bye week to get healthy. Still one of the best in the NFC despite the two losses.
Jake: The arrow is pointing up for the Fins.
Scott: Nobody saw that coming. The Colts defense game-planned to perfection against the 49ers. And Bradshaw out-shined the newly acquired Richardson.
Jake: The Bengals have responded with two wins in a row. Can they make it three straight?
Scott: Have gotten their act together since the opening night embarrassment. Ravens defense hasn't allowed a passing touchdown since Week 1.
Jake: I’m suddenly not as high on Houston as I was going into the season.
Scott: 49ers face their first battle with adversity in the Harbaugh era. How will they respond?
Jake: The Chiefs are 3-0 and safety Eric Berry is slowly overcoming his fear of horses.
Scott: Quietly the Cowboys are putting together a good season. When have we heard that before?
Jake: Baltimore refuses to have a Super Bowl slump.
Scott: Houston, we have a problem. Sorry ... it just fits perfectly right now.
Jake: Dallas must avoid a setback in Week 4 at San Diego.
Scott: The running backs did their job in Jackson's absence. It's Atlanta's defense that needs help right now.
Jake: The Colts now have a two-headed monster run game and a pretty solid QB under center.
Scott: Ended their losing streak in Washington. Early bragging rights on the line as they host the Bears on Sunday.
Jake: Detroit has momentum, but losing WR Nate Burleson (broken arm) after a car crash that involved a slice of pizza, is never a good thing.
Scott: Are the Titans for real? Haven't had a turnover yet in 2013. Winning formula right now in Tennessee.
Jake: In a week where the Bucs gave up on Josh Freeman, the Titans may have found their franchise QB in Jake Locker.
Scott: The Jets will have to live with the rookie mistakes from Geno Smith, but right now he's head and shoulders above Sanchez.
Jake: Arizona has had to face some tough opponents, but luckily a trip to Tampa Bay is on tap this week.
Scott: When will Sam Bradford turn the corner? He's got the weapons finally, but is still struggling.
Jake: Carolina gets an important victory and now has week off to prepare for the Cardinals.
Scott: A much-needed thrashing of the Giants headed into the Bye Week.
Jake: Something has to give as the 0-3 Vikings meet the 0-3 Steelers in London.
Scott: The Chargers are who we thought they were.
Jake: Another difficult matchup for the Rams as they travel to San Francisco. But they are in luck next week when they host the Jags.
Scott: Offense is looking like the real deal, but Chip Kelly needs to do something to get his defense shored up.
Jake: The Eagles either put it all together and explode against the Giants, or the Chip Kelly offense implodes.
Scott: The Bills' future is bright, but just not this season.
Jake: Oakland has never looked so inviting to RGIII and the Redskins.
Scott: Jordan Cameron and Josh Gordon are legit. Could be a fun offense to watch ... in 2014 when they have Teddy Bridgewater under center.
Jake: Not sure Buffalo has what it takes in 2013, but a win over Baltimore could change everything.
Scott: Tough schedule to open up the season, still nowhere near being a playoff contender, let alone an 8-win team.
Jake: The Chargers will get pounded by the Cowboys and all of the positive energy will be sucked out of that classy city.
Scott: Nearly completed the comeback against the Bears. Should get win No. 1 with the Vikings on tap in London.
Jake: I’m not buying into Geno Smith and the Jets. I think Tennessee is going to have their way with New York.
Scott: Suddenly, last year's darlings are winless and matchup against Oakland is no gimme if Pryor plays.
Jake: Arrowhead Stadium will add to the horror that is the 2013 season for the Giants.
Scott: Tom Coughlin is on the hot seat again. Last time that happened, the Giants went on to win the Super Bowl ... twice.
Jake: Loved the fight Cleveland showed in last week’s road win over the Vikings. Josh Gordon is a heck of a player.
Scott: Minnesota is searching for answers after an embarrassing home loss to lowly Browns.
Jake: This is going to be another awful season for the Raiders.
Scott: Will Oakland ever be a good team again?
Jake: See ya Josh Freeman…hello Mike Glennon.
Scott: Mike Glennon ... really? I guess it can't get any worse in Tampa Bay.
Jake: Showed a little something against the Bears, but this season is over for Pittsburgh.
Scott: At least they should be able to find a starting QB in the 2014 NFL Draft. Wait, didn't we say that before they drafted Gabbert in 2011?
Jake: Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.
