Power Rankings: Week Six

 

The Only Undefeated Team Left in the NFL.

Fun fact for this NFL season: the underdog has won in 59% of competitions so far. That is a historical high. More fun facts: There are only two teams in the AFC with a winning record. Wow, ranking teams has never been more irritating. As always if you think you can do better; leave your own rankings in the comments below.

1. Atlanta Falcons (6-0). Best record gets the top spot. Simple enough.

2. Houston Texans (5-1).  Despite an ugly loss and the downing of Brian Cushing, this is still the most complete and balanced team in the NFL.

3. Baltimore Ravens (5-1). This is not a 5-1 team. This is a 3-3 team with moxy. Massive holes all over the lineup could cost them big against Houston.

4. Chicago Bears (4-1). A bye week for the Bears to get healthy and regroup.

5. New York Giants (4-2). The Giants make no sense. Good luck figuring out how they stumble one week and excel the next.

6. Seattle Seahawks (4-2).  The Seahawks are playing solid ball right now. Knocking off Tom Terrific is a banner win.

7. San Francisco 49ers (4-2). The 49ers got destroyed the Giants. Absolutely destroyed.

8. Minnesota Vikings (4-2). All sunshine and puppy farts until they lose to the Redskins. This team will be defined based on its response to adversity.

9. Arizona Cardinals (4-2). Losing to the Bills has got to sting pretty bad.

10. Green Bay Packers (3-3). The Pack decided to spot the rest of the league three games. They looked all world in their beat down of Houston.

11. Denver Broncos (3-3). The Broncos rebound with a dramatic come from behind victory.

12. Washington Redskins (3-3). RGIII’s run was one for the ages. Careers are defined by plays like that

13. Miami Dolphins (3-3). Two straight wins have the Fins back even.

14. New York Jets (3-3). Jet’s take advantage of a weak opponent and get back to the win column.

15. Buffalo Bills (3-3). Bounce back nicely by beating the Cardinals in Glendale.

16. Cincinnati Bengals (3-3). Thanks to help from the Steelers the Bengals stay relevant in the AFC North.

17. San Diego Chargers (3-3). Phillip Rivers is the anti-clutch.

18. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3). Eagles almost manage to knock off the Lions. Shame.

19. New England Patriots (3-3).  The Pats’ mystique is quickly fading away.

20. St. Louis Rams (3-3). After an uplifting win, the Rams tumble backwards.

21. Detroit Lions (2-3). Nice come from behind win. That’s about all.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-3). Injuries are crippling the Steelers right now. Unlike the Ravens though they haven’t had the lucky bounces to help win games.

23. Indianapolis Colts (2-3).  Luck will get there. Just not this season.

24. Dallas Cowboys (2-3). Cowboys beat themselves in Baltimore and have no one to blame.

25. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3). Since starting out hot Josh Freeman has leveled off and not shown much progress.

26. Tennessee Titans (2-4).  Wow, a lot of grit from the Titans in knocking off the Steelers.

27. Oakland Raiders (1-4). At least they played hard.

28. New Orleans Saints (1-4). I’m still bitter that Brees broke U’s record.

29. Carolina Panthers (1-4). Cam Newton and the Panthers look comically inept right now.

30. Cleveland Browns (1-5). Cleveland is still going to finish in the bottom five but has some flashes of talent.

31. Kansas City Chiefs (1-5). That smell? Oh that’s just the Chiefs.

32. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5). The London Jaguars stumble again. This is just an awful team playing awful football.
