Heading into Week 4 of the schedule, here’s how the NFL standings look.

Three weeks of the NFL schedule are in the books now, with two undefeated teams in the Atlanta Falcons and Kansas City Chiefs and five winless squads right now. Everyone else is 2-1 or 1-2, with the coming weeks sure to tell a lot about those teams. So as we prepare for Week 4, here’s how the NFL standings look.

Starting in the AFC East, the New England Patriots and Buffalo Bills are both 2-1 at the top. The Miami Dolphins are 1-1, followed by the New York Jets at 1-3. There are no games within the division in Week 4, but the Bills have a tough road game against the Falcons on Sunday and the Dolphins will be the “home team” in London against the New Orleans Saints.

In the AFC North, there is already some separation between the haves and have-nots. The Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens are 2-1, while the Cincinnati Bengals and Cleveland Browns are both 0-3. Everybody pays within the division in Week 4, as the Steelers travel to Baltimore and the Bengals go to Cleveland.

In the AFC West, the 3-0 Chiefs are followed by the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders at 2-1. The Los Angeles Chargers are bringing up the rear at 0-3. On Sunday afternoon, the Raiders will go the Denver to take on the Broncos.

In the AFC South, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tennessee Titans are both 2-1 with the Indianapolis Colts  and Houston Texans both 1-2. The Titans and Texans will play in Houston on Sunday.

Three teams in the NFC East are 2-1, with the 0-3 New York Giants in the basement. Three of the four teams play on the road this week.

In the NFC North, it’s the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions at 2-1 and the Chicago Bears at 1-2. The “Black and Blue Division” will battle each other in Week 4, starting with Bears-Packers on Thursday night.

The Los Angeles Rams are leading the NFC West at 2-1, followed by the Seattle Seahawks (1-2), the Arizona Cardinals (1-2) and the San Francisco 49ers (0-3). The 49ers will play Arizona on Sunday.
