Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

Number 17: Atlanta Falcons (1-3) – Last Week 13

Prior to the start of the year, I thought the Falcons were going to have some trouble. This is a team that won a lot of close games last year. The same thing is happening this season, however, instead of winning these close games, they are losing them. I still think they’re the best 1-3 team though.

Number 18: San Diego Chargers (2-2) – Last Week 18

It seems as if Philip Rivers is finally fixed! He is playing tremendous football this year. Pretty crazy how well he is playing with the lack of weapons he has around him.

Number 19: Arizona Cardinals (2-2) – Last Week 22

Other than the Saints game, the Cardinals have been a tough matchup for all of their opponents. Their defense is very quick and excellent at defending the run. The offensive line is the key to the Cardinals success. They need to step it up and keep Carson Palmer up right.

Number 20: New York Jets (2-2) – Last Week 19

The Jets have gone through some early growing pains with Geno Smith. However, at 2-2, many people are surprised at some of the things the Jets have been able to do this season.

Number 21: Cleveland Browns (2-2) – Last Week 30

Surprise, surprise. Who would have thought, that after trading away Trent Richardson, the Browns would win their next two games, putting them right in the mix in the AFC North. So much for blowing up the team.

Number 22: Buffalo Bills (2-2) – Last Week 24

Buffalo’s offense has been good enough to keep them in all their games this season. This is a very young team with tons of potential and a pretty good defense.

Number 23: Carolina Panthers (1-2) – Last Week 23

Coming off a bye week, the Panthers certainly have their work cut out for them as they have to travel cross country to Arizona. They have a pretty favorable schedule coming up which will give them an excellent opportunity to get back into their division.

Number 24: Washington Redskins (1-3) – Last Week 25

The Redskins were finally able to achieve their first victory of the season. Despite a horrid start, they somehow find themselves only one game out of first place in the NFC East.

Number 25: Minnesota Vikings (1-3) – Last Week 26

Do I smell a potential quarterback controversy in Minnesota? Since he is a much more efficient passer, Cassel definitely gives this team the best chance to win.

Number 26: St. Louis Rams (1-3) – Last Week 21

This team has been such a disappointment. After going out and getting Bradford some weapons, he still has struggled at times. The defense has been unable to make plays like many thought they would.

Number 27: Philadelphia Eagles (1-3) – Last Week 20

So much for the offense that is going to change the league. There is just not enough talent on the defense to get the job done.

Number 28: Oakland Raiders (1-3) – Last Week 28

The Raiders offensive line definitely missed Pryor’s ability to escape the pocket this past week, as Matt Flynn was sacked 7 times. I never thought I’d say this, but Terrell Pryor has gave hope to a NFL franchise.

Number 29: Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4) – Last Week 27

A bye couldn’t have come at a better time for the Steelers. With a 0-4 start, you have to question whether Tomlin’s seat is getting hotter while this team continues to cool off.

Number 30: New York Giants (0-4) – Last Week 29

The Giants have been blown for three straight weeks now. Even though they have a lot of issues and are playing terrible football, if they can turn it around within the next week or two they will still have a shot at the division.

Number 31: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4) – Last Week 31

Mike Glennon didn’t seem to be the answer the Buccaneers were looking for. This is a tough team to figure out. The bye week comes at the perfect time for Tampa Bay.

Number 32: Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4) – Last Week 32

Is 0-16 possible? Sure looks like it. At least the Jaguars fans have something to look forward to; Aprils Draft.

Thanks for Reading!
