Can Big Ben and the Steelers keep pace with the division-leading Bengals? They'll have to get past the Seahawks -- in Seattle. Will Brock Osweiler give the Broncos a fighting chance against the 10-0 Patriots?
Same old Bengals? Hardly. While Cincinnati drops in this week's Power Rankings after a tough loss at Arizona, the fight that Andy Dalton and the rest of the Bengals put up in that failed comeback was impressive.
Fortunes can be made or lost in a contract year, and players like Josh Norman, Eric Berry, Michael Crabtree and Doug Martin are on pace to cash in big. On the other end, Sam Bradford and Alfred Morris are losing value.
