These Power Rankings become harder and harder every week. One week a chunk of teams looks terrible and the next week the same chunk looks good. Parity is alive and well in the NFL and I taking these Power Rankings very seriously.
Here’s to triggering everyone over their favorite team on this fine Tuesday morning.
After starting the season with some close, tough losses, the Colts got their teeth kicked in for the second straight week. Andrew Luck just still doesn’t look totally right on the field, despite his four touchdown passes.
They battled hard, but the Broncos just didn’t have enough in the tank to beat the Rams. Case Keenum looked okay in the comeback, but you have to wonder if they take a quarterback in April’s NFL Draft.
There is still time for the Falcons to turn it around this season, and a win over the Buccaneers is a big help heading into what should be an easy victory over the Giants. I would consider it an early must-win for Atlanta.
Yikes! The Browns take a big fall in the rankings after they got dominated by the Chargers. Baker Mayfield had a tough game, but the coaching staff had a worse afternoon with a clear lack of preparation and no mid-game adjustments. GUARANTEE: Baker will have a huge bounce-back game against the Buccaneers.
Beating that stout Bears defense and scoring 31 points is a tall task, but the Dolphins were able to avoid a three-game skid and knock off one of the better teams in the NFL. Brock Osweiller magic has swept South Beach (until Tannenhill inevitably returns).
Good for Mason Crosby, man, bouncing back after a terrible Week 5 kicking the football. It’s hard to bet against Aaron Rodgers, who might have his team clicking after a come from behind win at home on Monday Night Football.
I still like this team a lot, but their loss in Miami was brutal. Brock Osweiller has beaten the Bears now three times in three separate debut starts for teams (Broncos, Texans and Dolphins). What a fucking wild stat.
It was only a matter of time before Big Ben and the Steelers came into form as Super Bowl contenders. Their win in Cincinnati was a classic Big Ben comeback and this team will only get better if Le’Veon Bell returns.
This might come with a little bias because they beat the shit out of my Browns, but I truly think their offense is dynamic. They don’t have any real great wins, but their two losses came against the Chiefs and Rams.
Okay, talk to you next week.
