NFL Power Rankings: Week 10 edition


TOP TIER
1. Saints (8-0) [1]
2. Colts (8-0) [2]
3. Vikings (7-1) [3]
4. Patriots (6-2) [5]
5. Steelers (5-2) [6]
6. Cowboys (6-2) [7]
7. Bengals (6-2) [8]
8. Broncos (6-2) [4]
9. Cardinals (5-3) [12]
10. Falcons (5-3) [13]
11. Chargers (5-3) [15]

Not a lot of change at the top, other than the Broncos falling a bit. As much as I'd like to jump off their bandwagon, they did lose to the defending Super Bowl champions. Denver plays Washington this weekend, which should help them straighten everything out... The Cowboys are starting to hit a stride and that's bad news for the rest of the NFC East... The Bengals just might be for real and have a huge contest against Pittsburgh coming up in Week 10.

SECOND TIER
12. Eagles (5-3) [9]
13. Texans (5-4) [11]
14. Ravens (4-4) [10]
15. Giants (5-4) [14]
16. Jaguars (4-4) [21]
17. Dolphins (3-5) [16]
18. Bears (4-4) [17]
19. Packers (4-4) [18]
20. 49ers (3-5) [19]

I wanted to drop the Giants, Bears and Packers down the ladder more, but there is really nowhere for them to go. That's how bad the bottom tier is... The G-Men are in an absolute freefall, having lost four straight... The Ravens just aren't the team they were last year and their defense is starting to show its age... Not to take anything away from the Bucs but the Packers just can't lose to them, especially in those ugly throwback uniforms. Then again, Green Bay has one of the worst offensive lines in the game.

BOTTOM TIER
21. Panthers (3-5) [20]
22. Jets (4-4) [22]
23. Bills (3-5) [23]
24. Seahawks (3-5) [24]
25. Titans (2-6) [27]
26. Raiders (2-6) [25]
27. Buccaneers (1-7) [32]
28. Chiefs (1-7) [26]
29. Rams (1-7) [28]
30. Redskins (2-6) [29]
31. Lions (1-7) [30]
32. Browns (1-7) [31]

What can I really say here? Tampa Bay moves up five spots with their win and for just showing signs of life.
