  1. Love the theme this week.

    Also, your Bengals line is presuming they even make the playoffs this season. I wouldn’t bet on that.

  2. So the #29 Bears manhandled the #13 Vikings…..

    Got it.

    And after losing to the woeful Colts, how are the Packers even in the top 20?

  3. I feel like a good record doesn’t even mean much this year for how good a team is. It’s amazing how many teams are 4-5 or 5-4 or somewhere in between. So basically every game is against a mediocre team, and the top 7 are basically just better than mediocre. It’s a weird season.

  4. NOBODY believes the Packers are a top 10 team, even their fans know that. Must some type of bromance thing going on…not that there’s anything wrong with that…

  5. Hard to argue with the top 3 but enough already with Making With The Packer Love Again. Some things don’t change but c’mon, how does last week’s 7 team lose to last week’s 27 team and only drop 1 spot? Speaking of which, your 14 team lost to your 20 team, how can that be justified?

  6. Making people correct Florio by saying #11 is the Redskins. If you are going to use the host area name for one, you use it for all, or you use the team name for all. Using the host name for just one is poor form.

  7. Except for the top 5 or 6 teams, Goodell has exactly what he wants in “parity”, a huge number of very very very mediocre teams that are not entertaining to watch.

  8. Florio brings up crazy ol’ Jerry’s “gloryhole” comment about once a month for the past 3 years. Move along.

  9. PFT power ranking drop packers 1 spot after losing to the lowly Colts.

    PFT Proudly riding that Packers D again

  10. Okay, I get it. It’s a bit. No matter what the Packers do, you’re still going to rank them as one of the best teams in the league because you know you’ll get all kinds of outrage. Now that we get it, can you just be honest from now on? You can’t go on the radio and say McCarthy should be fired and then drop them one spot when they get manhandled at home by one of your lowest ranked teams.

  11. Everybody quit whining, you all know the Packers will ALWAYS be placed about 5 spots too high.
    It is blatant but there is nothing we can do about it, and it will never change as long as the same people do the list.
    Minnesota should be at about 22 with the Packers 2 spots below them!

  12. Lions have it all laid out in front of them. It’s so hard to think they’ll handle their business differently this time-then I thought about the Cubs……………….

  13. Chiefs still beat the Raiders, easily, in Oakland… Good news is the playoffs are determined by wins and losses, and not by the size of a teams market. Typical left wing media.

  14. cowboys pats SB and cowboys win 31-24 for their 6th Lombardi trophy.

    HOW BOUT THEM COWBOYS!!!!!

  15. Ok, this one was pretty funny.

    As I predicted, the Packers still top 10. Really? Come on man, that’s nuts. At some point, you guys have to get over the fact your not ranking Aaron Rodgers, your ranking the Packers as a TEAM, and the TEAM is not a top ten team.

  16. When you lose to my awful Colts at home, you shouldn’t even be in the top 15, let alone 8th. That’s a complete joke. The squirrel got open more than Jordy Nelson did.

  17. When will you guys finally admit and just let the undeniable love for the Packers go? They are NOT the same team. I think even Aaron Rodgers is now even worried. I mean when was the last they were booed so much at home in one season?

  18. Seeing the Patriots at #1 has to be DEFLATING for ROGER & 345 Park Ave.!!
    After all they did everything they could to ensure this wouldn’t happen & look where it’s gotten them!!!
    KARMA BABY!!!
    LOL!!!!

    Raiders have played 9 games and only one opponent was over .500. Too high for them.

    The Raiders have won a game more than each of them, and the Falcons have also lost one more game than the Falcons. 7-2 beats 6-2 and 6-3. That’s the way the math works.

  20. I would rank the Seahawks above the Broncos and the Lions above the Packers but other than that, you did pretty good this week.

  21. Making head to head matchups matter again:
    Patriots
    Cowboys
    Chiefs (beat Raiders)
    Falcons (beat Raiders)
    Raiders
    Broncos
    Seahawks
    Vikings
    Lions
    Giants
    (draw lots)

  22. The decision to sign Martellus Bennett will go down as one of Belichick’s smartest decisions. The rest of the league has no answer for when both Gronk and Martellus are on the field. They can run block, pass protect and catch passes. Belichick is an undisputed the GOAT.

  23. @kissbillsrings;

    Good point.

    Where is Hatriot Nation with their big mouths ALL THROUGH SHAMGATE?

    Gosh, they had so MUCH to say to knock down Brady and the Pats. Now they are eerily silent.

    Proof is in the pudding, they have nothing to say because they were saying exactly that all along….NOTHING!

    BRADY = GOAT
    The New England Patriots
    The Last NFL Dynasty.

  24. So let me get this straight…the Chiefs CRUSHED Oakland IN OAKLAND and are just a half game behind the Raiders because the raiders have played one more game….and the Raiders, who did I mention were CRUSHED AT HOME by the CHIEFS, are ranked higher than the team that CRUSHED THEM AT HOME. Riiiiiiiiiiight!

    That would probably be last season.

    ==========

    Sorry babygaga, but aside from your Donkeys, the Raiders also beat the Ravens who were 3-0 at the time. In the meantime the only team with a winning record that Denver faced and managed to beat this year was the Texans. So based on that reasoning, Denver is the team ranked too high.

    On the other hand, while I also hate the Chiefs I can live with the argument that they currently deserve a higher ranking then the Raiders because they whipped my team in Oakland.

    And for what it’s worth, the power rankings are fun to watch (especially for the comments) but for me the only thing that’ll really matter is if my team makes the playoffs at the end of week 17.

    Finally, a Viking fan who gets what another Viking fan is doing here.

  28. Listen, the Vikings have looked bad the last three weeks…but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a .500, 3rd place team in a division be ranked higher (top 10 no less) than two other teams with better records when you just lost at home to a ranked #23 team. Especially considering two days earlier there were articles written on this site alluding that the coaching staff is in the hot seat and the franchise QB is complaining about the ethos of the team. Bizzare.

  29. Why do people get so bent out of shape over these power rankings? This isn’t college football. These rankings mean nothing…they are just for entertainment. Geez…

  30. Nothing could be better than a Patriots/Cowboys Super Bowl where Belichick could have 2 full weeks to prepare to intimidate and disrupt a rookie quarterback en route to ring #5, with Brady most likely being MVP again.

    It’s gonna be sweet.

    _________________________________________
    Goodell has what he wants with one very large exception…….The Patriots are the best team in the league.
    He HATES that!

  32. I’m a Packers fan and I see the world through Packers Green and Gold colored glasses and I don’t think they’re as good as the Bill who are ranked 17th so how anyone can have them at 8th is insane to me – the NFL is about keeping up and the Packers have not – the fact that they have to play WR’s out of the RB hole should be a clue that their thinking is not all it could be –

  33. I am a Pack fan, but I want to see the Pack rated on how they are playing now, not their potential. If they start playing better, then their rating can rise.

  34. The Packers at #8 is just plain wrong. The Packers at anything ahead of the Vikings is just plain right.

  35. I think this guy ranks the Packers high just to see how angry people get when they read these. It a sports blogger’s NFL weekly power rankings. R-E-L-A-X.

  36. Even PFT is having fun with the Vikings trolls.

    If the Packers lose this week, I predict up to 7.

    Viking fans are so much fun.

    As a packer fan, all I can say is just look at how bad and inconsistent 4 through 15 are. Who the hell cares about any of these middling teams right now. They are all hard to watch….

  37. I’m a big time packer fan but number 8 is ridicoulous 15 to 17 is right.. forget injuries everyone has them no excuse .. Dont blame capers either teds refusal to get sideline to sideline linebacker since 2011 has been the loss of death for this team. 4th rounders and street fa dont cut it .

  38. I’m a big time packer fan but number 8 is ridicoulous 15 to 17 is right.. forget injuries everyone has them no excuse .. Dont blame capers either teds refusal to get sideline to sideline linebacker since 2011 has been the loss of death for this team. 4th rounders and street fa dont cut it .

  39. Packers at #8?? Isn’t this the team that has lost 3 of it’s last 4, including the last two in a row? And lost this week AT HOME, to your #24 team, the Colts?

    A little more thought should be put into these, and maybe they could be better.

  40. what a joke to have the donkeys that high up. they are a mid-grade team no matter how you slice it. weakest 6-3 team we have seen in years. record should be 4-5

    I think what you’re looking for is something called the Standings.
    It is a stat that takes win/loss records and stacks teams in that order.
    You can find it in just about any sport web site and most major newspapers.

  42. Mostly accurate. I put the Packers in the top 5, though. They’re definitely one of the more talented teams in the league.

  43. I love how everyone is all “too high this, too high that…” Like their IS such a thing! No on 1, yes on 2! It’s legal dolfans, enjoy!

  44. Glad to see that Viking fans continue to cry about the Packers’ ranking instead of worrying about their own team’s poor play.
