The Arizona Cardinals leaped from No. 16 to 10 in the weekly rankings, which measure offensive and defensive efficiency using a mathematical formula, but the top four slots remained unchanged as we enter the final weekend of the regular season.

The Chargers, a vogue pick to reach the Super Bowl these days, moved into the No. 5 spot from No. 8 following a convincing win over the Titans.

The Colts, who had their first loss after deciding to rest starters most of the second half versus the Jets, fell from fifth to seventh. The Saints, who also lost, remained No. 1.
