The Pats got steamrolled by the Browns and I don't have faith in that defense whatsoever. I think the Steelers, once they gel back with Big Ben, are better overall as are the Ravens. While I do agree it's a bit silly to have two teams they beat ahead of them, those two teams don't have a nasty loss like the Browns.
Also, the Jets got shutout and nearly lost to the Lions and Browns. Hard to consider them elite right now, imo.
The cool thing about this year is that 100 people can realistically have a differently ordered 1-5 for each conference and have valid points. No elite teams, YET, and a lot of parity.
