The names have nothing to do with how well they play. Frisco plays well because they have big improvements on defense. 2 pass rushers (Dee Ford and Nick Bosa added), and LB Kwon Alexander is a terrific acquisition. They also drafted a very good rookie LB. Their franchise QB Jimmy G. is healthy again, and he has a 11-2 record lifetime in the NFL, 9-2 with Frisco and 2-0 with New England as a starter. Their secondary is also better because Richard Sherman is finally healthy and J. Tartt is also healthy again. Frisco also drafted a couple of good wide receivers. Good drafting and free agent acquisitions really help the team.
In contrast Pittsburgh lost its quarterback for the season, and the Chargers' leading rusher is holding out for more money,. The Packers have improved a lot on defense. Their defense used to be a joke. The Raiders are 1-2 because they have an overrated quarterback who makes poor decisions. The Panthers went on a losing streak last year, and the streak continued into this season.
