Power Rankings for the NFL week 10 – WonderPunter
With 9 weeks of the NFL season in the books, let’s take a look at Week 10’s Power Rankings where a few teams made some jumps and others went backwards after this past weekend’s games.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (9-0)- As much as I still think they are not deserving of the top ranking.. they are still the only undefeated team. Bye week then a showdown with the Denver Broncos.
2. Denver Broncos (7-1)- With the bye week out of the way, can they continue to play at a high-level without head coach John Fox on the mend for possibly two months for a heart attack? Chargers and Chiefs coming up.
3. Indianapolis Colts (6-2)- They have beaten some quality teams to this point, but remember no more Reggie Wayne to help the offense.
4. Seattle Seahawks (8-1)- Expected better from a team that has struggled against the Rams and Bucs for victories.
5. San Francisco 49ers (6-2)- Big home game against the surging Carolina Panthers this Sunday.
6. New Orleans Saints (6-2)- Will look to bounce back against the Cowboys after Sundays loss to the Jets.
7. New England Patriots (7-2)- They head into the bye week after an impressive blowout win over the Steelers 55-31.
8. Cincinnati Bengals (6-3)- Can they avoid back-to-back road losses with the Ravens coming up?
9. Chicago Bears (5-3)- Big road win on Monday night in Lambeau gave them a big move up the rankings. Next up Detroit and possibly Jay Cutler returning to action.
10. Detroit Lions (5-3)- Coming off their bye week with a road game at Soldier Field.
11. Carolina Panthers (5-3)- All their wins have been against bad teams, now they visit the Niners on Sunday to prove their worth.
12. Green Bay Packers (5-3)- Dropped from last week and now with Aaron Rodgers out of action, they may continue to fall.
13. Dallas Cowboys (5-4)- Still middle of the road for me but they are in first place in a weak NFC East. Will be tested against the Saints on Sunday night.
14. New York Jets (5-4)- Good home win against a good Saints team leading into the bye week.
15. San Diego Chargers (4-4)- Another fourth quarter loss last week, now next up is the Denver Broncos.
16. Tennessee Titans (4-4)- I still like this football team and have the hapless Jags coming into town.
17. Miami Dolphins (4-4)- Can they overcome all the bad press this week and beat a winless Bucs team on Monday night?
18. Cleveland Browns (4-5)- Is Jason Campbell the answer to Hoyle?
19. Arizona Cardinals (4-4)- Next up is the Texans as they look to go above .500, unfortunately they have the 49ers and Seahawks to contend with in their division.
20. Philadelphia Eagles (4-5)- Back-up quarterback Nick Foles completely embarrassed the Raiders with seven touchdown passes, yet Vick may still get his job back when healthy.
21. Baltimore Ravens (4-4)- Offense must improve if they want to contend.
22. Washington Redskins (3-5)- With Minnesota coming up Thursday night, now is the chance to string some wins together in the winnable NFC East.
23. Buffalo Bills (3-6)- Tough road loss to the unbeaten Chiefs, but still like the direction they are going.
24. Oakland Raiders (3-5)- Horrible defensive performance against the Eagles. Next up is the lowly Giants, but it’s always tough for west coast teams to head east and win.
25. Houston Texans (2-6)- Defense is still there and had the Colts beat, but losing their coach proved too tough to overcome.
26. Atlanta Falcons (2-6)- Season is over and people are wondering why future Hall of Fame tight end Tony Gonzalez wasn’t traded to a team with a chance to win it all?
27. St. Louis Rams (3-6)- Playing with a back up QB and heading into Indianapolis on Sunday.
28. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-6)- Was Sundays blowout loss to the Patriots 55-31 their rock bottom? The worst we’ve seen in years!
29. New York Giants (2-6)- They have a very beatable Oakland team coming into town on Sunday.
30. Minnesota Vikings (1-7)- I guess the Josh Freeman quarterback of our future experiment is over after one game.
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-8)- Gave Seattle all they could handle and showed some pride before falling in OT.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-8)- What hasn’t been said already? Next up at Tennessee.
