NFL Power Rankings 2009: Week 15

NFL Power Rankings

The NFL Power Rankings are back for a second season. Check back each week for updated rankings. Feel free to leave feedback about how wrong I am in the comments section or throw me an

Team TW LW
Indianapolis Colts 1 2 Much like the Highlander, two men enter, one man leaves…and it’s the Colts.
New Orleans Saints 2 1 Finally lost a close game. Better now than in the playoffs.
Minnesota Vikings 3 3 How will the clash between Brett Favre and Brad Childress affect the Vikes in the postseason?
San Diego Chargers 4 4 Phillip Rivers is so wise. He’s like a miniature Buddha covered in hair.
Philadelphia Eagles 5 5 The Eagles gave Mike Vick an award for courage. Is it opposite day? Is this bizarre world? What’s next, Tiger Woods getting an award for ethics?
Green Bay Packers 6 6 Tully Banta-Cain does not like Buffalo Bills quarterbacks.
New England Patriots 7 9 It looks like the Patriots will have an easier time winning the AFC East than we originally thought.
Cincinnati Bengals 8 7 As much as Chad Ochocino is a goof ball, it was nice to see him show some heartfelt emotions about the loss of his team mate and friend Chris Henry.
Dallas Cowboys 9 8 DeMarcus Ware must have had the Saints on his naughty list because instead of a partridge in a pear tree, he sacked Drew Brees twice and forced two fumbles.
Arizona Cardinals 10 11 The Cards won’t surprise anyone in the playoffs this year.
Denver Broncos 11 10 How do the Broncos expect us to believe they are any good when they lose to the Raiders?
New York Giants 12 12 The G-men finally won a game that they were supposed to win, but is it too little too late?
Baltimore Ravens 13 16 The Ravens are 8-6? I thought they were out of it a long time ago.
Jacksonville Jaguars 14 13 Fred Jackson thinks the Jags are L.A. bound. What do you think?
Pittsburgh Steelers 15 17 Holy last second touchdown to win the game and (barely) keep your team in the playoff hunt Batman.
Miami Dolphins 16 14 How come more people don’t make jokes about how Bill Parcell’s nickname is Tuna.
New York Jets 17 15 The Jets have scored 60 more point than they’ve given up and have one of the best defensive units in the NFL, but they aren’t going to make the playoffs.
Tenessee Titans 18 18 I don’t believe that Chris Johnson will break the NFL rushing record. I mean, he only ran for 104 yards last week. It’s like he’s not even trying. For shame!
Atlanta Falcons 19 19 Osburn nickname of the week: Todd “Troy” McClure.
Houston Texans 20 20 I think it’s time to change the team name to the Hexans because there is some kind of voodoo curse on this team.
San Francisco 49ers 21 21 Michael Crabtree hasn’t been as great as he was touted, but he’s doing pretty well for someone who had to learn the offense halfway through the season.
Carolina Panthers 22 23 Matt Moore is better than Jake Delhomme.
Chicago Bears 23 22 Jay Cutler had a QB rating of 7.9 on Sunday. Before that, I didn’t even know they went that low.
Seattle Seahawks 24 24 I at least thought the Seahawks were better than the Bucs, but I guess my rankings are worthless now.
Buffalo Bills 25 25 Bills fans, this weekend should signify a new area in Orchard Park. It will forever be known as the Brohm era.
Oakland Raiders 26 26 Dear Santa, Bring Tommy Kelly a belt so his pants don’t ever fall down again on national television.
Washington Redskins 27 27 Who designed that trick play the ‘Skins ran right before halftime, Evil Knievel?
Cleveland Browns 28 30 You heard it here first; Josh Cribbs is the greatest kick returner in NFL history. Take that, Devin Hester!
Kansas City Chiefs 29 28 Best NFL related headline ever: “Breaking news: Tackling abolished in Kansas City!”
Detroit Lions 30 29 “Everything was beautiful, and nothing hurt”. Kurt Vonnegut may have been talking about something else, but he should have been talking about the feeling the Lions players will have when this season is finally over.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31 32 The Buccaneers somehow won again and just might not finish in last place in the rankings.
St. Louis Rams 32 31 Steven Jackson is still the only reason to watch the Rams.
