Power Rankings (week 9)

October 31, 2012 by Steel Haven

Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 1. Atlanta Falcons 7-0 Remained undefeated by handing Reid his first career loss coming off a bye.
2. 2. New York Giants 6-2 Picked off Romo 4 times to avenge their loss in the opener.
3. 3. Houston Texans 6-1 Visit from the Bills is like a second straight bye.
4. 4. Green Bay Packers 5-3 Driver celebrated his 200th game played for the franchise by scoring a TD.
5. 5. San Francisco 49ers 6-2 Smith bounced back with only a single incompletion and 3 TD passes.
6. 6. Chicago Bears 6-1 Overcame a 12 point fourth quarter deficit in part due to another defensive score.
7. 7. Baltimore Ravens 5-2 Hoping a trip to Cleveland can cure their ills.
8. 8. New England Patriots 5-3 Scored on their first 6 possessions and then beat Sandy home.
9. 10. Denver Broncos 4-3 Decision to sign Manning could not have worked out better up to this point.
10. 11. Pittsburgh Steelers 4-3 1934 throwbacks were an abomination. Miller's 37 TDs are a franchise record for a TE.
11. 9. Minnesota Vikings 5-3 Was the Thursday night debacle a bump in the road or portend of bad things to come?
12. 15. Miami Dolphins 4-3 Gamble on Philbin after being turned down by Fisher has paid off so far.
13. 22. Detriot Lions 3-4 Scored at least 28 points for only the second time this season after accomplishing the feat 8 times last season.
14. 12. Seattle Seahawks 4-4 A different team on the road.
15. 25. Indianapolis Colts 4-3 Ballard's incredible effort to get into the end zone in OT helped Luck get his first road win.
16. 13. Philadelphia Eagles 3-4 Firing Castillo made the defense worse. Benching Vick would undoubtedly make the offense worse. Reid is grasping at straws as his tenure in Philadelphia comes to an inevitable end. Don’t be shocked if he ends up in Cleveland.
17. 16. Dallas Cowboys 3-4 Game winning TD overturned on review because Bryant's hand was out of the back of the end zone.
18. 18. Cincinnati Bengals 3-4 Ending their 3 game losing streak will not be easy with Peyton coming to town.
19. 26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-4 Martin set single game franchise rookie record for yards from scrimmage.
20. 17. Arizona Cardinals 4-4 In free fall. Offensive line makes QBs job next to impossible whether Skelton or Kolb is behind center.
21. 19. Washington Redskins 3-5 LeBeau made RGIII look human.
22. 28. Oakland Raiders 3-4 Have a legitimate chance to climb to .500 with the Bucs coming to town although their cross country tip is somewhat alleviated by a long work week.
23. 14. New Orleans Saints 2-5 Return of Vitt made no difference. Bounty-gate has made this a lost season.
24. 20. New York Jets 3-5 NY media unlikely to be kind during the upcoming bye week.
25. 21. Tennessee Titans 3-5 Ran out of Luck.
26. 31. Cleveland Browns 2-6 Weeden has actually thrown for more yards than RGIII in the first 8 games.
27. 27. Buffalo Bills 3-4 Only the existence of the Jaguars keeps them from being the most inconsequential franchise in the league.
28. 23. San Diego Chargers 3-4 Have to be able to score a TD against the Browns to be taken seriously. Meacham drop on a sure TD was a microcosm of their offensive ineptitude.
29. 24. St. Louis Rams 3-5 Gave up 45 unanswered points after scoring on their first possession.
30. 29. Carolina Panthers 1-6 Keep finding creative ways to lose. Newton simply can't throw a pick 6 in the fourth quarter with a lead.
31. 30. Jacksonville Jaguars 1-6 Scobee’s 20th straight FG tied Hollis' franchise record.
32. 32. Kansas City Chiefs 1-6 Losers of 8 straight at Arrowhead. Only team since 1940 to not hold a lead in regulation through the first 7 games with their only win coming in OT.
