There are only four weeks left in the NFL regular season. Time is flying.

The playoff picture is becoming clearer and clearer in the NFC, meanwhile predicting which two AFC teams will earn Wildcard berths remains difficult outside of Buffalo.

Here is where all 32 NFL teams stand entering Week 14. Spoiler, the Cowboys are not good.

1 - Baltimore Ravens (LW: 1)

They are the real deal.

2 - Seattle Seahawks (LW: 4)

What a game on Monday night.

3 - San Francisco 49ers (LW: 2)

A loss to Baltimore is hardly something to be upset about.

4 - New Orleans Saints (LW: 5)

NFC South champions for the third year in a row. Impressive.

5 - New England Patriots (LW: 3)

They’ll be fine. They always are.

6 - Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 6)

Can’t wait to see them take on the Pats, though.

7 - Houston Texans (LW: 7)

Watch out. They’re for real.

8 - Green Bay Packers (LW: 9)

A sleepy win against the Giants still counts.

9 - Buffalo Bills (LW: 10)

Give respect where it’s due.

10 - Minnesota Vikings (LW: 8)

There is no shame in losing the way that they did. They’re good, they just ran into someone better.

11 - Los Angeles Rams (LW: 12)

Are they back?

12- Tennessee Titans (LW: 16)

Ryan Tannehill is ready to party.

13 - Dallas Cowboys (LW: 11)

Disappointing. Embarrassing. All of the above.

14 - Cleveland Browns (LW: 13)

Don’t wear any more t-shirts with slogans, Freddie Kitchens.

15 - Indianapolis Colts (LW: 14)

This season has been rough.

16 - Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 15)


17 - Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 20)

Quack quack.

18 - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 21)

Get as many as you can for fantasy purposes.

19 - Arizona Cardinals (LW: 17)

Next season will be interesting to watch.

20 - Oakland Raiders (LW: 18)

Almost time for Las Vegas.

21 - Chicago Bears (LW: 25)


22 - Carolina Panthers (LW: 19)

How do you lose to Washington?

23 - Denver Broncos (LW: 26)

Is the Drew Lock era going to be a good one?

24 - Detroit Lions (LW: 22)


25 - Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 23)

It’s Gardner Minshew time once more.

26 - Atlanta Falcons (LW: 24)

Poor Matt Ryan got the stiff arm of a lifetime.

27 - Miami Dolphins (LW: 30)

They are not so bad after all!

28 - Washington Redskins (LW: 31)

Not technically out of the division race, unbelievably.

29 - New York Jets (LW: 27)

J-E-T-S: Just End The Season.

30 - Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 248)

They always find a way.

31 - New York Giants (LW: 29)

Daniel Jones might be really bad.

32 - Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 32)

At least they won a game. 14th (LW: 11th)

The fall begins.

We’ve reached rock bottom of the Jason Garrett era. A 26-15 loss to the visiting Bills on Thanksgiving was sobering confirmation of a hard truth in Dallas: The Cowboys, with all their marquee talent, are just another team, as mediocre as their 6-6 record says they are. After the loss, an emotional Jerry Jones spoke of “looking ahead at winning four or five straight and helping write a story they will talk about,” but he sounded like an owner talking like a fan, blind optimism blotting out cold reality. Jones says that Garrett’s job is safe, but the pressure is on the coach in a way it’s never been before. Playing in a weak NFC East, the Cowboys still have the inside track to a division title and home playoff game. But nothing should be assumed at this point. Dallas is a flawed team, perhaps fatally so.

ESPN: 13th (LW: 11th)

Still in the top half.

There are other candidates, but Garrett has to be at the top of the list. He entered the season in a win-or-else situation because he was in the final year of his deal. He can still earn an extension but might have to do something that is not imaginable at the moment: get to the Super Bowl. Since Jones is responsible for the coaches and players on the roster he is also under fire, but since he owns the team, he isn’t going anywhere. Jones thought he put together a team to contend for a championship. That can still happen, but only if Garrett can rise to the occasion. -- Todd Archer

The Athletic: 14th (LW: 11th)

People aren’t exactly believers. Makes sense why.

Can you feel the heat from where you’re sitting? Yes, that’s Jason Garrett’s seat. No one in the NFL had a worse Thanksgiving than the Cowboys head coach, who was basically called out by his boss, Jerry Jones, after the Week 12 loss at New England and then saw at least one player (defensive end Michael Bennett) erupt into screaming so loud it could be heard through two sets of doors after losing at home to the Bills on Thanksgiving. Sure, the Cowboys are still leading the NFC East, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it.

Bleacher Report: 14th (LW: 12th)

Everything is pain.

After getting embarrassed at home on national TV, Dallas is a .500 football team that’s only in first place because it plays in the NFC Least. It has now played five games against teams with a winning record in 2019—and lost all five contests.

It appears that the NFC East is going to come down to a Week 16 meeting between the Cowboys and Eagles in Philadelphia.

It also looks like the only thing at stake will be the right to bet walloped at home by what could easily be a 12-4 wild-card team on the first weekend of the playoffs.

Yahoo Sports: 13th (LW: 11th)

Lucky 13.

The funny thing is, the Cowboys are likely going to win the NFC East and host a playoff game. And they have the talent to win a couple games, despite how awful they have played since starting 3-0 against the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins.

CBS Sports: 14th (LW: 14th)

No change here.

That was a bad loss at home to the Bills, but the Eagles did them a big favor by losing to the Dolphins. They need to play better.
