1.1.New York Giants11-1Will move on without Burress.
2.2.Tennessee Titans11-1Totalled 181 yards passing and still scored 47 points. Having two running backs each top 100 yards rushing and each score a pair of touchdowns doesn't hurt of course.

7.10.Baltimore Ravens8-4Clayton became the first player in franchise history to throw and catch a touchdown pass in the same game.

18.14.New Orleans Saints6-6Brees let the game and probably the season slip away by throwing a pair of interceptions in the final four minutes.
19.15.Chicago Bears6-6Got stuffed on four plays from the one yard line with a chance to take an 11 point lead and then gave up a 99 yard touchdown pass on the very next play.
20.22.Houston Texans5-7Improved to 8-6 all-time against the Jaguars.
21.16.Buffalo Bills6-6Failed to score on 18 and 15 play drives. Scored 51 less points than the previous week.

23.26.San Fransisco 49ers4-8The first team from the western time zone to travel to the eastern time zone and win this season.
24.23.San Diego Chargers4-8Firing Cotrell didn't help. Norv is the next to go.

28.27.Oakland Raiders3-9Clinched their sixth consecutive losing season.
29.28.Cincinnati Bengals1-10-1Held to 14 points or less for the ninth time this season.
30.29.St. Louis Rams2-10Return of Jackson wasn't enough.
31.30.Seattle Seahawks2-10NFL schedule makers made a big mistake putting them on Thanksgiving.
32.32.Detriot Lions0-12Set a franchise record for most points allowed on Thanksgiving and for some reason I watched the whole game. Simms at the end of the CBS broadcast said he expects them to win one of their final four games. I am not sure why or how.
