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 Big Monday night win against a very talented Falcons team.
Indianapolis Colts 2 2 It feels like the Colts haven’t lost since Joanie still loved Chachi.
Minnesota Vikings 3 4 Best Anti-Favre T-shirt at Lambeau: “Favre-o, you broke my heart”.
New England Patriots 4 5 I’m pretty sure Tom Brady threw for over three hundy and had a few touchdown passes even though they were in a bye week.
Pittsburgh Steelers 5 6 Big Monday night game at Denver after last week’s bye.
Denver Broncos 6 3 Finally brought back to reality with 30-7 spanking at the hands of the Ravens.
Atlanta Falcons 7 8 It turns out that Matt Ryan is not from the planet krypton after all. He’s still ok by me.
Cincinnati Bengals 8 9 Cedric Benson ran for a career high 189 yards against the team that kicked him to the curb like a broken Ikea coffee table.
Dallas Cowboys 9 11 Cowboys versus Eagles on Sunday night is a can’t miss game.
Philadelphia Eagles 10 10 Watch “It’s always Sunny in Philadelphia” Thursdays @10 on FX. It’s the best comedy on T.V.
New York Giants 11 7 Three straight losses. Rut Roh.
Baltimore Ravens 12 12 Quote the Raven, nevermore…a punching bag for the Broncos. Yea, that was a stretch.
San Diego Chargers 13 13 See, Shawne Merriman is actually playing this season. He had two sacks.
Houston Texans 14 18 Texans are rolling, but Steve Slaton might be dunzo.
Green Bay Packers 15 16 Sorry Pack fans. Brett Favre is still pretty pretty pretty good.
New York Jets 16 15 I bet the Jets wish they had THIS year’s version of Brett Favre.
San Francisco 49ers 17 14 Frank Gore had one run of 64 yards, but was held to only 27 yards on his other 12 carries.
Arizona Cardinals 18 17 Kurt Warner decided to one up Jake Delhomme on Sunday by throwing five picks.
Miami Dolphins 19 21 Who wants to join the Ted Ginn fan club with me?
Chicago Bears 20 19 It’s been ten years since Walter Payton’s death. RIP, Sweetness.
Jacksonville Jaguars 21 20 The jags defense looked bad against formerly winless Tennessee.
Carolina Panthers 22 24 The Panthers are like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
Buffalo Bills 23 22 The Bills are horrible, but Jairus Byrd has three straight two pick games.
Seattle Seahawks 24 23 I think it’s time for Edgerrin James to retire.
Tenessee Titans 25 32 Vince Young’s first start = the team’s first win. Coincidence? I think not.
Oakland Raiders 26 25 Tom Cable is a jerk and I don’t care for him.
Washington Redskins 27 28 Who knew that Dan Snyder had a soul? I was sure he was a vampire.
St. Louis Rams 28 31 Memo to James Butler, if you make an interception in the end zone and then run out, don’t run back in. They call that a safety.
lDetroit Lions 29 26 Stop booing Matthew Stafford, you’re Detroit not Philly.
Kansas City Chiefs 30 30 Welcome you’re newest washed up player: Chris Chambers.
Cleveland Browns 31 27 Wow, kicker Billy Cundiff got cut this week from the Browns. They probably figure that since they never score a touchdown there’s no reason to keep their kicker.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 32 29 The Saints look like they have #1 locked up, but #32 is a battle every week.
