2010 NFL Power Rankings - Week 5

And a refresher course for those who don't understand what power rankings mean. These aren't standings. I do take records into consideration, but records can be deceiving in many ways. This is how good I think the teams are right now. No more, no less. I don't think Tampa Bay is better then Dallas and Minnesota, for example. Anyways, enjoy. And when I say enjoy, I mean complain and tell me I watch too much ESPN Gameday, a show I haven't watched in about 7 years. Don't listen to gap toothed fat assholes.

1 (1). Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1). Bye.

2 (3). Baltimore Ravens (4-1). At least my Super Bowl winning pick is still standing strong. The Ravens finally got a break and dropped 31 on an average defense. Welcome to the end zone Ray Rice.

3 (4). New York Jets (4-1). Stupid lightning storm. I had to go to sleep when the score was 12-0. Woke up and it was 29-20? What the hell? The Jets have dropped over 30 points per game their last four.

4 (9). Indianapolis Colts (3-2). Colts fourth? If I was an ESPN bot I would have them in the teens saying the run is over. Just like it was in 2008. Jerkoffs. But it's not. They moved the ball very well and were able to score five times against a pretty good defense. I think they might just rattle off a ton of wins in a row.

5 (5). Atlanta Falcons (4-1). I don't think the Falcons are terribly impressive right now, gathering close wins against less then impressive opponents in San Francisco and Cleveland. According to these rankings they are the best team in the NFC right now. Shows how wide open that conference is.

6 (2). Green Bay Packers (3-2). Everyone's favorite (including mine) preseason NFC pick, I'm not ready to sprint away from the bandwagon quite yet. No team has been unlucky as the Pack in losing key players. Add Jermichael Finley and perhaps Aaron Rodgers to a list that includes Ryan Grant and Nick Barnett. But they are a couple last minute defeats away from having a much better record. I don't think they will be able to overcome all the injuries, but for now, I still think they are one of the best in the NFC.

7 (11). Tennessee Titans (3-2). Chris Johnson had his best game of the season, confusing Cowboys defenders all game, and Vince Young played just well enough to keep defenses honest. That has been the Titans winning gameplan for a few years.

8 (8). New England Patriots (3-1). Bye.

9 (10). Chicago Bears (4-1). It looked like the Bears were on pace to win about 184-6, but then Todd Collins happened. If they are forced to rely on him when they play a decent defense, they are in big trouble.

10 (7). Houston Texans (3-2).  Texans have an elite offense but that defense needs to get better or we are looking at an extremely entertaining 8-8 team. Which is precisely what I picked them to do before the season started.

11 (23). New York Giants (3-2)
12 (6). New Orleans Saints (3-2)
13 (13). Kansas City Chiefs (3-1)
14 (12). San Diego Chargers (2-3)
15 (15). Dallas Cowboys (1-3)
16 (17). Miami Dolphins (2-2)
17 (16). Minnesota Vikings (1-3)
18 (18). Philadelphia Eagles (3-2)
19 (24). Washington Redskins (3-2)
20 (14). Cincinnati Bengals (2-3)
21 (19). Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)
22 (21). Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-1)
23 (20). Denver Broncos (2-3)
24 (25). Seattle Seahawks (2-2)
25 (28). Detroit Lions (1-4)
26 (27). Arizona Cardinals (3-2)
27 (22). St. Louis Rams (2-3)
28 (30). Oakland Raiders (2-3)
29 (29). San Francisco 49ers (0-5)
30 (26). Cleveland Browns (1-4)
31 (31). Carolina Panthers (0-5)
32 (32). Buffalo Bills (0-5)
