Week Seven Power Rankings

cu70czhuaaasd-r

1. Vikings (5-0; last week No. 1): This weekend on FOX, the Vikings and Sammy Bradfridgewater visit the Eagles.

2. Patriots (5-1; No. 2): They weren’t necessarily crisp or dominant, and they still beat the Bengals by 18. In other words, it could be time to clear another spot in the trophy case.

3. Seahawks (4-1; No. 3): They haven’t been necessarily crisp or dominant all year, and they still keep winning. In other words, it could be time to secure the No. 1 seed in the NFC, again.

4. Cowboys (5-1; No. 10): America’s Team faces a decision almost as difficult as the one America faces.

5. Falcons (4-2; No. 6): A game-deciding non-call could end up deciding the fate of a team that now may be more likely to have to go back to Seattle in the playoffs.

6. Washington (4-2; No. 11): Where did the “Kirk Cousins can’t win without Jordan Reed” crowd go?

7. Packers (3-2; No. 3): Good news . . . the Packers traded for Knile Davis. Bad news . . . he doesn’t play quarterback.

8. Steelers (4-2; No. 5): A potentially special season is going to be derailed by an inability to beat not-so-special teams on the road.

9. Broncos (4-2; No. 7): The defense is somehow better. The offense is somehow worse.

10. Bills (4-2; No. 14): Are the Bills for real? They next two games (at Miami, vs. New England) will provide the answer.

11. Texans (4-2; No. 12): Winning games they should win will get them to the playoffs. Winning games they shouldn’t will get them to the Super Bowl.

12. Chiefs (3-2; No. 15): “Hungry Pig Right” isn’t just a barnyard warning.

13. Raiders (4-2; No. 8): Every time it looks like the Raiders are ready to be the Raiders again, they remind us that they’re not.

14. Cardinals (3-3; No. 18): David Johnson will soon be the best running back in the NFL. And by soon I mean right now.

15. Eagles (3-2; No. 9): The bye week was the equivalent of Samson getting a flattop.

16. Titans (3-3; No. 21): Kendall Wright has given the passing game a new dynamic, and the Titans are moving toward relevance, and the playoffs.

17. Giants (3-3; No. 22): With Odell Beckham Jr., the good outweighs the bad. But the corny outweighs both.

18. Lions (3-3; No. 23): The fact that the offense hasn’t missed a beat without Calvin Johnson needs to be remembered when it’s time to consider him for the Hall of Fame.

19. Ravens (3-3; No. 13): They’re performing well despite plenty of injuries, but the injuries are doing just enough to keep them from winning.

20. Buccaneers (2-3; No. 19): With three straight home games on the horizon and an 0-2 record in Tampa, the stands may soon be more full during a lightning delay.

21. Bengals (2-4; No. 16): Hue Jackson returns to Cincinnati with a team sufficiently talented to drop the Bengals even farther down this list.

22. Rams (3-3; No. 17): With the Rams in London, blue and yellow spotlights will be directed at Big Ben each night this week between the hours of 7-9.

23. Saints (2-3; No. 25): However this season turns out, Drew Brees is cementing his case for Canton.

24. Jaguars (2-3; No. 26): When the Raiders come to town, Jack Del Rio finally will get a chance to take a swim in a Jacksonville pool without paying the water bill.

25. Dolphins (2-4; No. 28): Most quarterbacks will perform well with good blocking, and most won’t without it.

26. Chargers (2-4; No. 31): Mike McCoy may have saved his job on Thursday night, but with games at Atlanta and Denver coming, the reprieve may be temporary.

27. Panthers (1-5; No. 20): A 10-game season starts after the bye, and the Panthers are still good enough to win most of them.

28. Colts (2-4; No. 24): Coach Chuck Pagano is “encouraged” by the team’s performance on Sunday night, which makes sense only if he’s hoping for a three-year buyout.

29. Jets (1-5; No. 27): If the Jets are going to use Geno Smith as a relief pitcher, they should consider firing up the bullpen before it’s 28-3.

30. 49ers (1-5; No. 29): Has any franchise gone from perennial contender to perennial laughingstock more quickly?

31. Bears (1-5; No. 30): Another week, another one-win team heads to prime-time.

32. Browns (0-6; No. 32): The Cavs and Indians have given the Browns perfect cover for a full-season tank.

    Pats need to tighten up the secondary and figure out what is the deal with Gostowski. But on the plus side they have the greatest QB in league history who seems oddly unfazed by normal footballs, unlike Luck and Rodgers.

    Might as well start putting the Pats #1. Everyone knows its true.
    As for Dallas’s choice vs. that of America: No, there isn’t any comparison. Dallas has two good options and has to decide which is best, the options of the good old U. S. of A. not so much.

    I love it, the Falcons lose and still move up. How quickly we forget their 5-0 start last season and all the No.1 seed talk back then. Let’s see how it all plays out for another few more weeks for all the teams being already put in the playoffs after just 6 weeks of football. For some teams it’s only been 5 weeks of football.

    American citizens lose either way. Dallas actually has TWO good choices. We didn’t even get one good candidate to chose from. But we will still somehow claim that we are the best anyway. That’s about the only thing we Americans are really good at anymore is bragging.

  21. truecowboyfan says: Oct 18, 2016 12:34 PM

    Nobody ever brings up that the Cowboys are 1 point away from being 6-0. I do agree with where we are at on the list though.

  22. fwippel says: Oct 18, 2016 12:35 PM

    The Cowboys do not face a difficult decision. Prescott has earned the starting job, and unless he absolutely self-destructs, he remains the starter.

    There is no reason to upset the offensive rhythm at this point.

  24. inozwetrust says: Oct 18, 2016 12:36 PM

    Ravens have lots of injuries. Ravens are beating themselves with stupid penalties. Ravens are beating themselves with stupid play. Ravens are beating themselves because the head coach won’t let the best kicker in football kick field goals. Ravens lost one game because of the stupidest rule in football.

    In other words we have the rest of the AFC right where we want it !!

  25. grumpyoleman says: Oct 18, 2016 12:39 PM

    Redskins seem about right finally, Green Bay still too high. Not sure about the Detroit team being lower than the Philadelphia team they already beat though.

    So has anybody at Fox Sports even addressed the clear, cut and paste of Bradford’s face on top of Bridgewater’s body?

    It’s hilarious that someone at the chyron machine decided to do it.

    Will Fox cut and paste Kaepernick on top of Gabbert?

    The Raiders are being the Raiders again.

  29. jag1959 says: Oct 18, 2016 12:43 PM

    Hard to argue with the top 3. Undefeated is undefeated so the Vikes deserve to be at 1, NE is the team to beat in the AFC and the Hawks, regardless of how, beat the Falcons who should be at 4. But having the Redskins ahead of the Steelers, Broncos or Bills is a serious reach.

    On the other hand, it’s nice to see the Panther love is no longer coloring your judgement.

    =========================
    Not a difficult decision at all for Dallas! When Tony is fully healed (& not rushing back too soon), He will give us the best chance to win later in the year, playing with probably the best team assembled in his career! Dak is going nowhere & IS the heir apparent🙂 …..America on the other hand, is in trouble, as there is no more “We the People” 😦

    Since when were the dreadful 49ers a “perennial” playoff contender? They have 3 playoff appearances in the last 14 years

  36. hailtothenamechange says: Oct 18, 2016 12:50 PM

    Everyone from 4 to about 27 are pretty evenly matched. Three really good teams, five really bad teams, and 24 teams who are roughly a coin flip when they match up with each other.

  37. footballfan825 says: Oct 18, 2016 12:52 PM

    The packers continue to loose against all the good teams they face. Yet when they beat the hapless bears on Thursday it will be “Aaron is back!” And “This is clearly the best team in football” … watch next week they will be ranked #3 regardless of the outcome of any other game… (unless they loose lol)

  38. andrwken says: Oct 18, 2016 12:53 PM

    Ahhhhhh Vikings fans,

    On top of the charts and the Packers are still living rent free in your heads.

    10 is bit high though for the pack. Playing like they want the coach fired or better draft picks…..

  39. Grulks says: Oct 18, 2016 12:53 PM

    Dallas is playing so well, they may actually even rush for 150 yards and throw for 3 touchdowns agaisnt the bye week

  43. kindasporty says: Oct 18, 2016 12:56 PM

    So Megatron shouldn’t be in the hall of fame because the Lions have a competent offensive coordinator, a quarterback coming into his prime, and two new quality receivers? By that logic, Jerry Rice shouldn’t be in the hall of fame because the 49ers didn’t miss a beat when he left.

  44. rabidbillsfan says: Oct 18, 2016 12:58 PM

    Pats will come crashing back to earth in 2 weeks, if not this week.

  45. senxic says: Oct 18, 2016 1:01 PM

    I would probably put GB at around #10 right now, even though they aren’t playing the greatest.

    I think the Cardinals need to be a bit higher.

    Green Bay in the top 12, let alone 7, is absolutely ridiculous. Do you even watch the games??

  48. dohczeppelin says: Oct 18, 2016 1:04 PM

    Wow, when is the last time the Bills hit the top 10 of a power ranking? Lets see if they can keep it up. They have looked like a complete football team bound for the playoffs these last four weeks with the notable exception of unconventional QB play that while ultimately still effective so far, has put up anemic passing numbers. The linebacking corp, the O-line, and McCoy are playing out of their minds right now though, and they have been rewarded with 4 convincing victories. Go Bills!

    The true test will of course be the Patriots in week 8. I’m not exactly expecting a win, but a victory there would be a total game changer and open up a clear path to the post season.

    yes 15 years of being one of the top 4 teams in the league ends now, and the bills having 15 years of being at the bottom of the league is also over

    the billls are amazing they beat the patriots third string, they beat the mighty 49’s, the rams and a plummeting cardinals.

    can you sense the fear in all of us pats fans, we are so scared from a team that wins a few games and thinks they are the greatest team in the league

    That’s because of who it was to, if you haven’t noticed the G-men aren’t very good, so 1 pt or 20, that is a bad loss at home!

    The only thing easier than the decision at QB for the Cowboys is there schedule, 1 tough game, and 2 ok games left on the schedule.

  61. myopinionisrighterthanyours says: Oct 18, 2016 1:35 PM

    Ahhhhh, Packers fans. Living in denial that Sam Bradford (and every other single QB in the league) has a better passer rating that Rodgers. And the fact that until this week in garbage time of a game they were being destroyed in, I had as many second half TD passes as he did this year. And I’m not a Vikings fan.

  62. allight59 says: Oct 18, 2016 1:35 PM

    The fact that the offense hasn’t missed a beat without Calvin Johnson needs to be remembered when it’s time to consider him for the Hall of Fame.
    —————————————————————

    While I don’t believe Calvin is a hall of famer, this certainly shouldn’t be a factor when deciding whether he is. That said, the real reason it really needs to be remembered is when teams in the future decide to waste an early pick on a WR, or even worse, pay him QB level money.

  69. leatherface2012 says: Oct 18, 2016 1:50 PM

    How could it possibly be easier to photoshop Sam Bradford’s head onto Teddy Bridgewater’s body and change the 5 to an 8 on the jersey than it is to just google image “Sam Bradford Vikings”? It took me 0.39 seconds to get an acceptable picture.

  71. thetruthcampaign says: Oct 18, 2016 1:52 PM

    Megatron easily makes the HOF.

    There have been plenty of times the Lion’s offense wasn’t good WITH or without Calvin Johnson. Doesn’t have anything to do with Calvin.

    Calvin was the best in the league for his years here. It’s not even in question.

    Coaching might be what you should look at to determine why the offense is working.

    No Lion and very few other WR’s are going to approach Megatron’s stats.

    Sammy Bradfridgewater????
    Where the hell did that come from? Sam is playing lights out better than Teddy ever has.
    Sam has been on crappy teams and nobody has ever known his upside (Gruden quote) He is Cherry Picking the offense with Norm which noone has ever let him do, and the team is playing to his strength.
    I am going to dread the day someone figures out how to stop the outside curl, FB in the middle seam, and Sideline post out! Without those 3 plays Minnesota has nothing.

    With Eli and Odell and the best Run D and top 5 secondary in the NFL you really think they are at the bottom of the NFC East?

    The Bears will likely lose to every AFC South team this year. Has the AFC South ever swept a team before?

  82. gisellichek says: Oct 18, 2016 2:15 PM

    I think it is clear now why TV ratings are down in the NFL this season… Parity is gone… Half the league has .500 or worse records, have no prayer at a playoff spot … and everyone knows (including PFT) that the most hated team in football is going to win it AGAIN!!!

    “They weren’t necessarily crisp or dominant, and they still beat the Bengals by 18. In other words, it could be time to clear another spot in the trophy case.”

    4. The Cowboys have no decision. Dak is clearly the better QB.

    6. What about the “Wentz is a combination of Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning” crowd?

    18. Megatron is a guaranteed first-ballot hall of famer, same as Peyton Manning and Charles Woodson.

    you are absolutely correct, except the pats have dominated more then just their division as they have been the best team in football for 15 years, the bills haven’t dominated the league or their division and still arent doing that today

    That’s a lame comparison!

    For the last 15 years the Patriots have a higher win % outside the division. That’s even more impressive since they play more games outside the division.

    So no, the Patriots are not just good because of the division like the Colts

    ————-

    The Giants aren’t very good?

    they lost to the Washington, then to best team in football and then played a short week on the road in GB with no secondary. Its week 7, lets see how this all shakes out..

  105. footballfanatic says: Oct 18, 2016 4:05 PM

    Tom Brady: 75% completion rate, 6 td’s, 0 int’s, rating of 130. Jimmy Garoppolo: 70% completion, 4tds, 0 int’s and rating of 120. Congrats, Tom is slightly better than a backup qb. Oh and Tom got to play against the browns and a 2 win bengals crap team. Jimmy faced Miami with 2 wins and an Arizona team with 3 wins. So Jimmy has faced stiffer competition. Keep telling yourselves tom is something special- it appears anyone in that offense can put up great stats, just like Cassell did back in ’07 when tommy went down. Tom is overrated for all his crap screens and slants that high school qb’s throw. Anyone who watches football knows these are called ‘high percentage passes’, and thats for a reason- anyone from Jimmy Garoppolo to Matt Cassell can make them and look good.

    You think the Packers are 7 spots better than the Cardinals, who had a rough start but have since righted the ship?

    If they played each other on Sunday, you would bet your house that Green Bay would come out on top…?

    The Cardinals have beaten the Packers this past January, beat them in 2015 as well. The last time the Packers were better than the Cards was in 2012, in Green Bay, with the Cards down to John Skelton at QB.

    Yes, they beat a 1-5 Niners team who just lost to the Bills by 29 and a 1-5 Jets team whose negative delta on the road is 15 points and that included one win!!

    Just a friendly reminder. The Bills shutout New England’s entire 46-man Gameday roster, at home, not just their 3rd string QB. I mean, it’s not like that QB guided the previously unbeaten team the week before to a Shutout victory or anything. And then, this supposed goat is the best ever for beating a team starting a WR at QB. Right. Boston Tear Party.

    Amazing, all these current and former NFL coaches
    Are all wrong about Brady but you have it all figured out.

    Yeah let’s make a lame comparison between a guy that played a total of 6 quarters to another guy that’s been doing it for 16 years

    Ps Cassle 23 Tds 3600 yards
    Brady with the same offense 5O Tds almost 5000 yards

    The Raiders sure had a bad game, and their defense is horrible. That said, they are still second in the AFC, only behind the Patriots. And if they held the draft today, they’d pick 29th. Surely they deserve to be above at least the lowly Packers at this point. I mean you have 6 other AFC teams listed above them, as well. Ugly wins or not, they’re wins.

    The Chiefs are presently the 2nd best team in the AFC, especially with Big Ben going down. By the end of the season, they will have a first round bye, in the playoffs and will meet the Pats in the AFC Championship game. The Lamar Hunt Trophy returns home, where it belongs!

    Kansas City is once again quietly gaining steam, as the season progresses and allot of people who ignore them will be really surprised when they not only win the AFC West, but play the Patriots in the AFC title game, where they will prevail!
