NFL Power Rankings (Week 7)
1) Saints (6-0) – LW 3
Drew Brees torched the Giants secondary. The G-Men didn’t get any pressure on Brees and paid for their lackluster defensive performance to the tune of a 48-27 smack down.
2) Colts (5-0) – LW 1
They only dropped from #1 because of their bye week and the Saints beat up on the Giants.
3) Vikings (6-0) – LW 4
Another exciting win for the Vikings. Brett Favre and Adrian Peterson have shown that they are a lethal combination.
4) Broncos (6-0) – LW 5
Eddie Royal’s punt return and kickoff return touchdowns sparked a huge win against the rival Chargers. The Broncos have taken a strangle hold on the AFC West.
5) Falcons (4-1) – LW 7
The Falcon’s defense stepped up, especially in the red-zone.
6) Patriots (4-2) – LW 9
They absolutely obliterated the pathetic Titans, 59-0. The offense looks like it’s back on track. We could see a repeat performance next week against the Bucs.
7) Giants (5-1) – LW 2
The Giants secondary was non-existent against the best offense in the NFL. The G-Men have to fix the holes in the secondary or they will get torched again next week against the Cardinals.
8) Steelers (4-2) – LW 13
They dominate the Browns every year, but their real test is next week against the Vikings.
9) Bengals (4-2) – LW 6
The Bengal’s defense couldn’t stop Texans qb Matt Schaub, who threw for 392 yards and 4 tds.
10) Ravens (3-3) – LW 10
Ray Rice brought the Ravens back in the fourth quarter, but kicker Steven Hauschka missed the game winning field-goal and the Ravens lost their third game in a row.
11) Bears (3-2) – LW 12
Cutler’s interception and Forte’s fumbles in the red-zone killed the Bear’s chances of getting a nice win against the Falcons.
12) 49ers (3-2) – LW 14
Frank Gore should put them back on track.
13) Packers (3-2) – LW 16
They shut out the Lions last week and can do the same to the Browns next week.
14) Jets (3-3) – LW 11
Sanchez has to cut down on the interceptions if the Jets want to get back to their winning ways.
15) Cardinals (3-2) – LW 21
Big test against the Giants next week.
16) Eagles (3-2) – LW 8
They ran the ball only 14 times against the Raiders last week; what kind of play calling is that?
17) Cowboys (3-2) – LW 18
The Cowboys’s record is a little deceiving, considering all of their wins have been against teams with a losing record.
18) Chargers (2-3) – LW 15
It’s the same old talented but inconsistent Chargers.
19) Dolphins (2-3) – LW 17
If Henne can play with consistency then the Dolphins will be a very competitive team.
20) Texans (3-3) – LW 20
They haave the potential to put up 40 points at anytime, but they’re too inconsistent to be taken for real.
21) Seahawks (2-4) – LW 19
The injury bug has striked the Seahawks again.
22) Jaguars (3-3) – LW 22
The Jags barely beat the Rams after a blowout loss to the Seahawks the previous week.
23) Panthers (2-3) – LW 23
They’ve reeled off two wins against bad teams. Steve Smith isn’t happy with the way he’s being used in the offense and who could blame him.
24) Raiders (2-4) – LW 32
Surprising win against the Eagles last week.
25) Bills (2-4) – LW
Hard fought victory on the road without Trent Edwards against the Jets last week.
26) Chiefs (1-5) – LW 28
The Chiefs are playing hard. They were very competitive in their games versus the Cowboys and Ravens.
27) Redskins (2-4) – LW 24
Maybe taking the offense play calling duties away from Jim Zorn can revamp their offense.
28) Lions (1-5) – LW 25
Stafford and Culpepper are injured, their down to Drew Stanton at qb.
29) Browns (1-5) – LW 29
Their offense is dreadful, no qb and no wide receivers.
30) Rams (0-6) – LW 31
At least their somewhat competitive in their losses.
31) Titans (0-6) – LW 27
They have serious problems, hence their 59-0 defeat at the hand of the Patriots.
32) Buccaneers (0-6) – LW 30
They face the Patriots next week, that could be ugly.
