The New York Giants seem to be good in games that have more nip and tuck than the average round of plastic surgery.
Last week on the hospital table was the Green Bay Packers, who managed to eke a victory out in New Jersey despite their hosts matching them for 99% of the game.
This week, it was a trip to Dallas for the NFC North showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. The game was again something that would send an ordinary fan to the asylum such was its insanity, but the Giants hung in there and blocked a last-gasp field goal to take control of the division.
Elsewhere, the Packers destroyed Oakland to go 13-0 and some guy called Tebow mastered a fourth quarter comeback for the Denver Broncos. Again.
Alex Ferguson has more on who impressed him and depressed him this week....
New York Giants
Despite having an injury list that would make an emergency room proud, the Giants went to Arlington and won. Eli Manning's fourth quarter comeback skills and Jason Pierre-Paul's block of a potential game-trying field goal in the final second provided the fireworks.
If this is the year when tight ends reach Mount Olympus, then New England's Rob Gronkowski is Zeus.
Quotes of the week
This Houston Texans team - quarterbacked by rookie TJ Yates - won at Cincinnati on Sunday to take home the AFC South Title for the first time in the franchise's history. At least something's going well for the State of Texas eh?
If NFL games were played in thirds instead of quarters, then Tim Tebow would probably never play again as a quarterback for the Denver Broncos. Thankfully for him, a suddenly-sterling defence and Broncos Nation, it isn't and the Broncos are 6-1 and winning the AFC West. What a turnaround, eh?
After weeks of being merely passable, the Detroit Lions got a boost when they beat the Minnesota Vikings and AFC North and play-off rival Chicago lost at Denver. On the day, the defence stepping up, grabbing both a fumble and an interception for a touchdown in their 34-28 win.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers keep on winning. There's nothing else really to say - apart from that the green and gold will be praying wide receiver Greg Jennings is going to be healthy after a nasty-looking injury late in their thrashing of Oakland.
It's not every day that we give love to the Dirty Birds, but Matt Ryan's pinpoint throw to Jacquizz Rodgers to get the Falcons back in the game against the Carolina was a thing of beauty. The win kept the Falcons in the play-off hunt - which they should be with a tidy 8-5 record!
New England Patriots
If this is the year when tight ends reach Mount Olympus, then New England's Rob Gronkowski is Zeus. He's hauled in 15 touchdowns and been brilliant - and he was needed in the Patriots tight, unpredictable win against Washington. Tom Brady will need him if the Pats progress through the play-offs - because the defence is really struggling.
Ben Roethlisberger is made of good old-fashioned Pittsburgh Steel, isn't he? After his leg injury in the first half, it looked as though he'd broken the thing. But the Steelers quarterback stumbled on, hit 'Downtown' Antonio Brown for a touchdown in the second half, and the Steelers 'D' did the rest..
Let's face the facts: This is a very, very good Ravens team. Future play-off opponents should take a deep breath and pray avoidance until absolutely necessary.
The Bears team don't blame Marion Barber for committing two horrific errors in the final minute of the fourth quarter or for the overtime fumble that would lead to the Bears loss at Denver, but rest of Bear Nation does.
The most annoying thing for the Cleveland Browns is that even if they draft 10 offensive linemen in the 2012 Draft, they will still be in need of a competent quarterback and wide receivers. The rebuilding process - especially in a nasty AFC North - is going to take years.
For two games in a row the Cowboys have seen their kickers iced and have lost both games. They will be, erm, absolutely booting themselves if they miss the play-offs because of this.
Kansas City Chiefs/Miami Dolphins
Almost predictably, Todd Haley is out of a job in Kansas City and Tony Sparano was told to go and sleep with the fishes in Miami. Firing them will cover up the cracks for both teams for about a week, until the front office also gets asked questions.
The Jags put up 41 points on Tampa Bay. So why are we depressed? Why in the heck didn't this team come out and play like this earlier in the season?
The Colts just keep on losing.
