NFL Power Rankings – Week 6


Each week after Monday Night game(s) has concluded, I’ll  publish my list of NFL power rankings.  Here is the pecking order for Week 6.

1) Green Bay Packers  – Pack just keeps rolling.

2) Baltimore Ravens  – Ravens beat up on the vaunted Texans defense.

3)  San Francisco 49ers  – Harbaugh and his team will fight any opponent, including the Lions.

4) New England Patriots  – The Pats, who squeaked by the Cowboys, aren’t juggernauts.

5) Detroit Lions  –  At least they won’t have to decide whether to play their regulars to maintain a perfect season.

6)  Pittsburgh Steelers  – Steelers beat the Jags at home, but not convincingly.

7) Chicago Bears  –   If only they could play the Vikings every week!

8)  New York Giants  – Managed to hold off a decent Bills team at home.

9) New Orleans Saints –  Tough losses to division rivals can upset playoff chances.

10) New York Jets  – Killed the Dolphins, but everyone does that.

11)  Oakland Raiders  –  Carson Palmer is not perfect, but he may be good enough to get the Raiders to the playoffs.

12) San Diego Chargers – The Chargers are 4-1, but it’s that record is pretty soft.

13)  Houston Texans  – Are the Texans starting their yearly slide?

14) Washington Redskins  – Maybe they’re not that great, after all.

15) Dallas Cowboys  – Tony Romo couldn’t get loose even against the Patriots.

16) Buffalo Bills  – Bills couldn’t quite bring down the Giants on the road.

17)  Tampa Bay Buccaneers  – Looks like the Bucs will be a problem for teams all year.

18) Atlanta Falcons  – Falcons got pretty well against the Panthers.

19) Philadelphia Eagles  – This was a big win for the stumbling Eagles in Washington.

20)  Cincinnati Bengals  – Carson who?

21)  Tennessee Titans  – Much-needed rest for Titans.

22)  Carolina Panthers  – Cam Newton continues to play pretty well but can’t do it all by himself.

23)  Cleveland Browns  – Starting to fade, but that was expected.

24)  Kansas City Chiefs –  -After bye, which Chiefs team will show up?

25)  Denver Broncos  –  Tebow is the answer, right?

26) Seattle Seahawks   –  Lots of bad byes this week.

27)  Jacksonville Jaguars  –  Made a late run at the Steelers but fell short.

28)  Arizona Cardinals  – Cardinals losing streak ends … with bye.

29)  Minnesota Vikings  – Adrian Peterson sat this one out … 39 yards!

30)  St. Louis Rams  – Wasn’t that what we expected from the Rams in Green Bay?

31) Indianapolis Colts – Losing to the Bengals always sucks, even if it’s for Luck.

32)  Miami Dolphins  –  Very ugly team who might steal Andrew Luck from the Colts.
