NFL Week 9 Winners and Losers: Who wants to be a contender? (Shutdown Corner)

The way the NFL is going this season, the best way to improve your reputation is to not play. Everyone is vulnerable. The Saints lost at the Jets. The Seahawks were horrible for a half and needed overtime to beat the woebegone 0-8 Buccaneers. The Chiefs were outgained 470-210 by a Bills team quarterbacked by undrafted rookie Jeff Tuel, and miraculously won. Cincinnati lost on Thursday night. Indianapolis didn’t look too sharp early on against Houston. We think more highly of the 49ers, Broncos and Packers right now than we did before Sunday’s games, just because they didn’t have a chance to look bad. San Francisco and Denver had a bye, and the Packers play on Monday night (and the Packers might look terrible against the Bears … the way it’s going, who knows).
