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!

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.

Was on the road today traveling, and just finished watching on the DVR. Defense again looked good. I hope we retain Pagano when the HC change is made. The only thing I did not like was the soft rush 4 at the end of the first half to give Pit 3 points. I thought we should have kept attacking because it was working so well. The D still had a great day though.

The O with a makeshift line did pretty good. Rivers seemed a little off target early, but with that line I don't blame him (even though they played well). I think Norv called a good game with some short passes, and the wide receiver screen worked well. I like that he stuck with the run as well. Alexander still looks like a beast, and Spurlock had a good game. Clock management still seemed to be a problem with some delay calls, and rivers hurrying to get the snap off because they get to the line late.

Good game overall. Can't wait for next week.

Amazing what winning does...geez -- we're definitely the SO CLOSE yet SO FAR team again this year -- but, I think Dean is sick of it. Wish Norv coulda got us that ring. Darn.

I still want this team to finish 8-8 and clean house after just as long Dean doesn't change his mind on Norv and AJ. Then there's this other thought about where they might pick in the draft although I hope it would be in the top 12 atleast. For that to happen they have to lose 2 more games. All in all, good win for this team I wish they would of played the way they played couple weeks ago.
