NFL Power Rankings – Week 9

Another undefeated team went down this week leaving three remaining: the Patriots, Bengals, and Panthers. Do they make up our top three? Are there any new teams in our top ten?

  1. New England Patriots (8-0)

  2. Cincinnati Bengals (8-0)

    BENGALS_2015The Bengals still haven’t lost a game. They’re legitimately good. The Patriots still deserve the top spot but I think the Bengals could beat them. Andy Dalton has led this team to the third highest points per game this year. The defense is still one of the ten best.

    We were way wrong about the Bengals when we picked them to win only six games. Going undefeated is realistic. Their toughest games left are at Arizona in week 11 and at Broncos in week 16.

  3. Denver Broncos (7-1) 

  4. Carolina Panthers (8-0)

  5. Arizona Cardinals (6-2)

  6. Green Bay Packers (6-2)

  7. Seattle Seahawks (4-4)

    RUSSEL_WILSON_SEAHAWKS_SUPER_BOWLThe Seahawks have been a disappointment at 4-4. If the season ended today they would not make the playoffs. Good thing for them it doesn’t. I still think they’re one of the better teams in the NFC. They’re only two games behind the Cardinals in the NFC West and they get to play them twice. The defense is still great but the offense has been really bad. I belive Russel Wilson can change that.

  8. Pittsburgh Steelers (5-4)

  9. Minnesota Vikings (6-2)

  10. New York Jets (5-3)

  11. St. Louis Rams (4-3)

  12. Atlanta Falcons (6-3)

  13. Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)

  14. Oakland Raiders (4-4)

  15. Indianapolis Colts (4-5)

  16. Buffalo Bills (4-4)

  17. Kansas City Chiefs (3-5)

    CHARCANDRICK_WEST_CHIEFSThe Chiefs have won two in a row and they still have a chance at making the playoffs. Charcandrick West wasn’t good in his first start but he’s averaged over 100 yards and a touchdown in his last two. The defense is all right and the running game is still good without Jamaal Charles. If they can continue to score like they have these last two games they might sneak into the playoffs.

  18. New Orleans Saints (4-5)

  19. New York Giants (5-4)

  20. Baltimore Ravens (2-6)

  21. Miami Dolphins (3-5)

  22. Chicago Bears (3-5)

  23. Washington Redskins (3-5)

  24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)

    JAMEIS_WINSTON_BUCS_2Are the Bucs not that bad? Yeah, they’re bad, but are not that bad? Since that week 1 blowout loss, they’re 3-4 and have been competitive in most games. Jameis Winston actually looks better than I thought he would. If Lovie Smith did his job and could coach their defense to not be terrible, the Bucs could have been solid.

  25. San Diego Chargers (2-7)

  26. Dallas Cowboys (2-6)

  27. Cleveland Browns (2-7)

  28. Houston Texans (3-5)

  29. San Francisco 49ers (3-6)

  30. Detroit Lions (1-7)

  31. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-6)

  32. Tennessee Titans (2-6)

Tony’s Top Five

Top 5 Quarterbacks in 2020

  1. Andrew Luck
  2. Marcus Mariota
  3. Paxton Lynch
  4. Russel Wilson
  5. Tom Brady

Tony’s Thursday Night Pick

Rex Ryan against his former team. IK Enemkpali, the guy who was cut from the Jets after punching Geno Smith in the face, will be a captain. I think these teams will be properly motivated. You won’t see anyone taking plays off tonight. The Bills are a different team with Sammy Watkins and Tyrod Taylor playing, as we saw last week. I still think the Jets are better and they’re at home.

The Pick: Jets -2.5
