NFL Power Rankings - Week 6

We are starting to see who is going to contend in the AFC. But the NFC? Wow, wiiiiiiiiiiiiiide open.

1 (1). Pittsburgh Steelers (4-1). The Steelers look like the best team in the league, playing very well on offense, defense and special teams. 12 points per game allowed, 16 sacks, 8 interceptions, 9 forced fumbles, two Browns receivers decapitated. And oh yeah, they finally got Big Ben back, instantly giving the offense a shot in the arm.

2 (2). Baltimore Ravens (4-2). Yeah, the Ravens lost, but I still think they are the second best team right now. They are second in the NFL in points allowed, even after giving up a lead to the Patriots and losing in overtime.

3 (3). New York Jets (5-1). The Jets are a field goal away from being 6-0, and no one seems to be talking about them after their season was over according to ESPN following a 1 point week 1 loss to my 2nd ranked team.

4 (4). Indianapolis Colts (4-2). Another team who ESPN wants to try to predict a demise (seemingly yearly). The Colts aren't winning pretty. They are giving up a lot of points and a ton of rushing yards. But they are winning and Peyton Manning looks like the early favorite for MVP once again. The schedule toughens up after the bye.

5 (7). Tennessee Titans (4-2). The Titans are one of three teams in the AFC South that are 4-2. They are winning with defense, with a no name deep unit generating a whopping 24 sacks through 6 games. Throw in 10 interceptions.

6 (8). New England Patriots (4-1). The Patriots have no running game, no defense and no pass rush, but they are 4-1. Tom Brady isn't even having a spectacular year. I expect the Patriots to fall off soon, but so far so good.

7 (11). New York Giants (4-2). Giants my best NFC team? After I had them in the 20's just a few short weeks ago? Right now? Absolutely. Tell me who looks better right now. The passing game is on point, the running game has really stepped up with Ahmad Bradshaw the lead back, and more importantly the defense is playing very well, giving up under 20 points per game and getting to the quarterback like they did during their Super Bowl year. That being said, there is a 100% chance they lose to the Cowboys next weekend.

8 (5). Atlanta Falcons (4-2). The Falcons have managed to squeak by some easy opponents, lost to two good teams and beat the Saints. They are winning with defense, as they are first in the league in interceptions. Roddy White has pretty much been a one man show on offense. It's hard to figure out how good the Falcons really are right now.

9 (10). Houston Texans (4-2). I wanted to drop the Texans out of my top ten, but the offense stepped up and stole a victory away from the Chiefs. A very bad defense lost their leader for the season in DeMeco Ryans. In this division, they should fall off pretty soon. They just can't stop anybody.

10 (6). Green Bay Packers (3-3). Eh, Packers still in my top ten I guess. They have had a serious chance to win every game they have played this year. Can't blame injuries, they were just on the wrong end of two straight overtime losses. My man Cameron Wake almost murdered Aaron Rodgers with Brian Baluga being accomplice.

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