NFL Power Rankings 2009: Week 5

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
New Orleans Saints 1 1 We’ll find out if they are actually the top dogs when they face the G-men this weekend.
Minnesota Vikings 2 2 Three blowout wins against terrible teams (Rams, Browns and Lions) and two very close wins against debatable teams (Packers and Niners)
Indianapolis Colts 3 3 Most fun name in the NFL to say with a French accent: Pierre Garcon.
New York Giants 4 5 Should we be wary of the Giants ridiculously easy early schedule?
Denver Broncos 5 4 The Broncos defense is only giving up 8.6 points per game.
Philadelphia Eagles 6 9 Since the Eagles have no running game whatsoever, maybe it’s time to get the ball in Mike Vick’s hands.
New England Patriots 7 6 Is Tom Brady ok mentally?
Atlanta Falcons 8 10 “Rowdy” Roddy White looked like a fantasy bust before his nasty 210 yard game against the niners.
New York Jets 9 7 Jets should easily get of the shnide on Sunday against Buffalo.
Baltimore Ravens 10 8 Ravens sign David Tyree. He’s the football equivalent of a lucky rabbit’s foot.
Cincinnati Bengals 11 17 Bengals fans selling “Cardiac Cats” T-shirts. Not sure if that’s a good thing.
Dallas Cowboys 12 11 Felix “the Cat” Jones and the ‘Boys aren’t a playoff team.
San Francisco 49ers 13 12 Set October 25th into your day minder. It’s the day Michael Crabtree will make his debut.
Pittsburgh Steelers 14 13 Hines “ketchup” Ward doesn’t seem to be slowing down at 33.
San Diego Chargers 15 14 Shawne Merriman wants to fight his GM. Who does he think he is, Milton Bradley?
Green Bay Packers 16 15 Assumed Packers intense bye week preparation for Detroit? Golf and lots of naps.
Chicago Bears 17 16 Is Terrell Owens going to get traded to the Bears? As a Bills fan, I say send on the draft picks!
Arizona Cardinals 18 20 How is that the offensive line can give Kurt Warner oodles of time to find receivers, but can’t make holes for Tim Hightower.
Houston Texans 19 18 Time for the post-season push only to lose out in week 17.
Miami Dolphins 20 21 Watch out for the hard-charging ‘Fins.
Jacksonville Jaguars 21 19 Are you kidding me? What the heck happened against the Seahawks? The freakin’ Seahawks!
Carolina Panthers 22 28 The Panthers are a LOT better than their record.
Seattle Seahawks 23 23 41-0 win over Jacksonville. Is this team good? Not bloody likely.
Washington Redskins 24 26 Clinton Portis got in a fight during last week’s game with a team mate. That won’t help anything.
Detroit Lions 25 25 It would be grrrrrrrrreat if he didn’t have to watch the Lions on Thanksgiving this year.
Oakland Raiders 26 26 JaMarcus Russell is still playing, eh? And the A’s didn’t make the playoffs again. Tough time to live in Oaktown.
Tenessee Titans 27 24 I really hope the Titans start the year 0-10. That would be amazing.
Cleveland Browns 28 32 Derek Anderson going 2-17 for 23 yards with ! INT = win?
Buffalo Bills 29 22 Trade for Brady Quinn????? Pleeeease!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30 29 At least the weather is nice. What? It’s hurricane season?
Kansas City Chiefs 31 30 Delicious barbeque in Kansas City I hear.
St. Louis Rams 32 31 Rush Limbaugh isn’t as bad as Marge Schott.

  1. Tom Brady has issues. Serious issues. The Pats looked better with Matt Cassel – and he didn’t look all that great.
