So, what are some of the takeaways from this week’s results?

  • Green Bay is no longer #1.  However, it’s win over Atlanta after such a treacherous start is a great harbinger for the future.  Besides, Detroit certainly deserves to be considered a #1.
  • Big moves of the week were for the Steelers – beating up on a former Top Ten entry in Tennessee and the Patriots for winning their archrival game.  The Tampa Buccaneers took over the big disappointment after their non-effort against the 49ers.
