Power Rankings Week 6:
1. Houston Texans (5-0) – Seemed like they played their worst football of the year, and that was Johnathan Joseph’s worse game of his career. A win is a win, and now have big SNF game against the Packers at Reliant Stadium!
2. Atlanta Falcons (5-0) – Another win to stay as the only undefeated team in the NFC.
3. San Francisco 49′ers (4-1) – Looking extremely impressive their last few games.
4. Baltimore Ravens (4-1) – Terrible game against the Chiefs, but still pulled out the win.
5. New England Patriots (3-2) – If they can continue running the ball like they did last week, this team will be tough to stop.
6. Chicago Bears (4-1) – Another win heading into the bye week as they prepare for the Lions on MNF in week 7.
7. New York Giants (3-2) – Need to win the games against these teams and they have. Now a huge game against the 49’ers.
8. Arizona Cardinals (4-1) – Played a terrible game against the Rams. O-line needs to protect their QB, as their defense can only carry them so far.
9. Green Bay Packers (2-3) – Tough loss against the Colts in Indianapolis. Have another tough matchup against the undefeated Texans in Houston.
10. Philadelphia Eagles (3-2) – Tough loss on a GW-FG in Pittsburgh.
11. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-2) – Edged out the Eagles in Week 5, and must be excited about the emergence of Mendenhall, coming back from his injury.
12. Minnesota Vikings (4-1) – “The Vikings will be tied for the division lead in wins through week 5,” said no one.
13. San Diego Chargers (3-2) – Let’s see if they can get Mathews rolling.
14. Denver Broncos (2-3) – Three losses against the Falcons, Texans, Patriots. Broncos still a pretty good team, even though record might show otherwise.
15. Dallas Cowboys (2-2) – It looks like all of Romo’s QB friend think Romo threw a few picks during his bye week.
16. Cincinnati Bengals (3-2) – Bengals are an ok team, not great but not terrible.
17. Seattle Seahawks (3-2) – The offense really needs to improve if they want a chance at the playoffs.
18. St. Louis Rams (3-2) – The D-line ate up the Cardinals last week. Let’s see how they play against the Dolphins.
19. Detroit Lions (1-3) – Both sides of the ball need to improve quickly or the Lions will miss the playoffs.
20. New Orleans Saints (1-4) – Big win as Brees breaks the record. Now have bye week to prepare for the rest of the season.
21. Buffalo Bills (2-3) – I think I could have been more productive with 100 million dollars, than Mario Williams has been.
22. Washington Redskins (2-3) – Need RG3 healthy to have any shot at competing this year.
23. Miami Dolphins (2-3)- Impressive win against the Bengals, need to beat the Rams this week.
24. Carolina Panthers (1-4) – I guess they are not this years’ surprise team.
25. Indianapolis Colts (2-2) – Huge win for the Colts and their organization for Coach Pagano.
26. New York Jets (2-3) – Played a close game to the Texans, but they didn’t play as well as the score suggests. Need to beat the Colts this week, or the season can come to an end early.
27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3) – Need to get Freeman and the offense moving.
28. Oakland Raiders (1-3) – Tough matchup out of the bye week against the Falcons.
29. Kansas City Chiefs (1-4) – Terrible class by the Chiefs fans cheering the Cassel injury. Not sure if the class of the fans is worse or just as bad as the Chiefs player have been playing this season.
30. Tennessee Titans (1-4) – Eventually the Titans will need to give up on Chris Johnson.
31. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4) – At least the Jaguars can’t lose this week.
32. Cleveland Browns (0-5) – Trent Richardson is going to be a top running back in the near future.
Thursday Night Game of the Week:
No Locker for the Titans, though it’s doubtful it would have made much of a difference.
Steelers – 27 Titans – 17
