Yup but that doesn't matter. Obviously all the blame goes to Norv and none of it goes to AJ...

All he need is the discount double check belt protector. He'll be alright then.

Probably none, there are 5 teams with 9 wins or more (4 div. leaders plus the Colts).
But if you're asking who should we cheer to lose, then the answer is:
A LOT, I divided into several groups:

1. The AFC East
Jets, Bills and Dolphins (since they're division rivals, they'll have to kill each other, but when they face each other, one has to win. It's really really a long shot to wish that they'll all end up in tie. Unfortunately last game of the season will be a divisional game). *And I'm too lazy to check the last 3 weeks schedule*
The Jets has a slightly better records than us, so cheer for them to lose before Bills and Dolphins.

2. Steelers and Bengals
They're both 7-6, and we have tie-breaker against Steelers, but we lost tie-breaker to the Bengals, in case they face each other, I'd cheer for the Steelers.

3. Browns
They're 5-8 same records as us, but they hold the tie-breaker.

Other than that, it really is a toss-up to decide who will have tie-breaker against us (or if we have advantage over them) since we lost to Denver twice, and the Ravens too, all of our other loses are against NFCs.

I'd say Bengals and Jets are on our top list of team to go winless, Steelers next, and hope that all the 5-8s doesn't get more wins than us, or if they do tied us, let's hope that we have the tie-breaker. But first thing first, we have to beat the Jets in 2 weeks!

And my theory is... either Steelers had a bad day or all these recent pick-ups has something to prove and came out hungrier than the original starters.

Spurlock > Royal
Danario > Meachem

O-Line today > O-Line before

even Kevin Haslam looks better than Gaither and Harris
Reggie Wells better than Clary....

Corey Lynch > Bigby....

One of the more exciting games I've watched in a long time. Not because it was a win, but because the defense just completely man-handled Big Ben and Co.

It was also nice to see players in depth positions step up and contribute tremendously. Rivers looked comfortable behind that makeshift 0-line which was good to see.

Also, congrats to Bront Bird for his first NFL interception!

However it was bittersweet. Couldn't help thinking that it took Norv waaaay too long to switch the offense up to a quick passing game with short patterns. Would have meant so much more earlier in the season.
It really is sad huh, think we could/should be 11-2 right now on top of the AFC with a better head coach.

IMO:

Norv's playcalling today > Norv's playcalling before today.

Norv's playcalling today > Norv's playcalling before today = Oline today > Oline before today.

This Oline w/Norv's previous playcalling = PR on IR.

Lynch < Bigby. Lynch = Gregory. Good FS, not so good SS.
