A weekly peek at the NFL from top to bottom.

NFL Power Rankings

1

New Orlean Saints
Last Week: 1

New Orleans Saints

Ripped the Giants defense to shreds. Proved they’ve deserved the top spot the last few weeks.

2

Indianapolis Colts
Last Week: 3

Indianapolis Colts

Moved up a spot on a bye week. Now they get a tune up game in St. Louis.

3

Minnesota Vikings
Last Week: 4

Minnesota Vikings

More and more impressive every week. Averaging over 30 points a game.

4

Denver Broncos
Last Week: 5

Denver Broncos

McDaniels deserves a lot of credit. No one believed when they were 3-0, but now they sit at 6-0 with wins over Dallas, New England, and San Diego.

5

New York Giants
Last Week: 2

New York Giants

The defense needs to rebound against another high powered passing attack. Look for them to dominate.

6

Atlanta Falcons
Last Week: 8

Atlanta Falcons

Travel to Dallas next week followed by a trip to New Orleans. We will know a lot about this team in 2 weeks.

7

New England Patriots
Last Week: 10

New England Patriots

Welcome back Brady-Moss! Can they repeat that performance? I say yes.

8

Philadelphia Eagles
Last Week: 6

Philadelphia Eagles

Minor set back with Oakland. Need to get back on track in Washington before the Giants come calling.

9

Cincinnati Bengals
Last Week: 7

Cincinnati Bengals

Highly talented team that hasn’t showed up for all 4 quarters of a game this season. A loss to a dangerous Texans team isn’t much of a setback.

10

Pittsburgh Steelers
Last Week: 12

Pittsburgh Steelers

Beat a weak Browns team, but the important part is they are getting healthy. Look for them to knock off the Vikings this week.

11

Chicago Bears
Last Week: 9

Chicago Bears

Dropped one to a very good Atlanta team, but have 4 winnable games in a row with Cincinnati, Cleveland, Arizona, and San Fransisco.

12

Green Bay Packers
Last Week: 13

Green Bay Packers

Detroit and Cleveland should be a perfect warm up for Brett and the Vikes.

13

Dallas Cowboys
Last Week: 15

Dallas Cowboys

A chance to prove themselves at home this week when the Falcons come calling.

14

Baltimore Ravens
Last Week: 11

Baltimore Ravens

3 losses in a row is never a good thing. They get a bye to breathe, and then it’s back to the grind with Denver.

15

Arizona Cardinals
Last Week: 19

Arizona Cardinals

They bring a two game win streak into Giants Stadium. Fitzgerald is finding his stride.

16

San Francisco 49ers
Last Week: 16

San Fransisco 49ers

Defense needs to bounce back against a hot Texans offense. Gore and Crabtree are ready to roll.

17

Houston Texans
Last Week:20

Houston Texans

Big win over Cincinnati. This team can beat any team on any given week.

18

Miami Dolphins
Last Week:17

Miami Dolphins

Can they pick up where they left off two weeks ago? Clock control will be important for keeping Brees and Co. of the field.

19

San Diego Chargers
Last Week:18

San Diego Chargers

Well they look good on paper. LT looked better. Can’t afford to drop a game in Arrowhead.

20

New York Jets
Last Week: 14

New York Jets

Looks like the rookie wall is hitting early. A win in Oakland is nearly a must.

21

Jacksonville Jaguars
Last Week:22

Jacksonville Jaguars

MJD is great, but an overtime field goal to beat the worst team in football isn’t. A week off to regroup can only help so much.

22

Carolina Panthers
Last Week: 23

Carolina Panthers

DeAngelo gets rolling but the passing game is miserable. Steve Smith is probably going to punch someone.

23

Seattle Seahawks
Last Week: 20

Seattle Seahawks

Big win one week, slaughtered at home the next. The inconsistency isn’t going to take them far. A week off to regroup and find some new uniforms.

24

Buffalo Bills
Last Week: 25

Buffalo Bills

3 points against the Browns followed by a win on the road against the Jets. Sanchez threw them 5 picks, Delhomme can top that.

25

Oakland Raiders
Last Week: 28

Oakland Raiders

Even though it wasn’t pretty, a win over the Eagles is a quality win.

26

Kansas City Chiefs
Last Week:31

Kansas City Chiefs

Grab their first W against the miserable Redskins. Can they keep it rolling against a struggling Chargers team?

27

Washington Redskins
Last Week: 24

Washington Redskins

Scored 6 points against the Chiefs. That is not good.

28

Detroit Lions
Last Week:26

Detroit Lions

Slowly moving toward the bottom. Team is much better with Stafford in thelineup.

29

Cleveland Browns
Last Week:29

Cleveland Browns

The defense is competitive, but the offense is not. Can’t even beat Swine Flu.

30

Tennessee Titans
Last Week:27

Tennessee Titans

I finally have given up on them.

31

Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Last Week:30

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Josh Johnson isn’t the answer. Time to find out if Josh Freeman is the future, I think he’s not.

32

St. Louis Rams
Last Week: 32

St. Louis Rams

0-7 is inevitable…they aren’t beating the Colts.
