Power Rankings for Week 7


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 7.

1) Green Bay Packers  – Aaron Rodgers completed 80% of his passes against the Vikings.

3)  San Francisco 49ers  – No Harbaugh fisticuffs this week.

4) New England Patriots  – Bye … bye … Theo Epstein.

5)  Pittsburgh Steelers  – Steelers have not been dominant, but they ARE 5-2.

6) Chicago Bears  –   The Bears won’t win 13 this year, but they’re not going away, either.
