9. New England Patriots (LW: 10)
Quietly, New England has won three in a row, and Tom Brady is playing at an extremely high level. Darrelle Revis is also rounding into form. The win over the Jets wasn’t very impressive, and gives reason to believe the rash of injuries could be having an effect.
What to know: We know Brett Favre lost his passing touchdown record to Manning, but another record was broken Thursday, too. Tom Brady surpassed Favre for the most consecutive wins by a quarterback in divisional home games with 19 (Elias Sports).
