14. Cincinnati Bengals

Two weeks ago, the Bengals were the No. 1 seed in the AFC and one of the hottest overall teams in football. Then they lost to Mike White and the Jets before getting blown out by a resurgent Baker Mayfield and the Browns.

This Bengals team is still 5-4 and they have enough talent on both sides of the football to make a playoff run. But the defense's regression has been noticeable and Joe Burrow continues to be careless with the football.

The Bengals may be down right now, but they're not out. Still, they'll need to turn things around in a hurry in an ultra-competitive AFC North.

13. New Orleans Saints

After three straight wins including an impressive victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Saints put together a dud against the Falcons.

Yes, they had Trevor Siemian starting at quarterback, but the former Jets signal-caller actually played quite well. Unfortunately, the team lacks any sort of a playmaker at either wide receiver or tight end.

The defense is still talented. The offensive line is very good. Alvin Kamara is Alvin Kamara. But with Siemian and the lack of talent at the skill positions, it's fair to wonder just how far this team can go.
