The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL Power Rankings Week 9

NFL Power Rankings Week 9

Power Rankings!

1) Los Angeles Rams

The best teams win games when they do not play their best and the Rams did just that in a hard-fought win over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. Next up is maybe their biggest test of the season at New Orleans.

2) New Orleans Saints

The Saints went to Minnesota and got a huge win, which was led by an ever-improving defense. The Saints are a serious Super Bowl contender because they are a complete team.

3) New England Patriots

The Patriots do what the Patriots do, which is win and they do it in seemingly a different way every game.

4) Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs offense continues to roll and now the defense seems to be playing a little better each week.

5) Los Angeles Chargers

Nobody in Los Angeles seems to care but the Chargers are becoming a serious Super Bowl contender and when Joey Bosa returns they will only get better.

6) Carolina Panthers

Cam Newton is starting to look a lot more comfortable in Norv Turner’s offense and it shows. This is a team that is starting to get some serious consideration as a team that could make a run in the playoffs.

7) Washington Redskins

The Redskins surprisingly sit atop the NFC East and nobody seems to believe it’s real. Heck, I don’t even believe it’s real, but you can’t deny this team is playing well at the moment.

8) Pittsburgh Steelers

A huge showdown in Baltimore looms and while the Steelers look to be shifting into high gear, they did just beat the Bengals and Browns so let’s not jump all in on their chances just yet.

9) Houston Texans

The Texans are in control of the AFC South because of a stingy defense. If they want to do more than just win the division the offense must step up.

10) Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings played with no sense of urgency on Sunday and right now the defense has to be one of the biggest disappointments in the NFL.

11) Chicago Bears

Quarterback Mitch Trubisky seems to improve a little bit each week and if that continues the Bears could win the North.

12) Cincinnati Bengals

For all of the Andy Dalton haters, Dalton marked his 4th game-winning 4th quarter drive of the season on Sunday. For all you Marvin Lewis haters, you’re right!

13) Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens lack of a run game could be their undoing this year, not Quarterback Joe Flacco.

14) Seattle Seahawks

The Seahawks are a surprising 4-3 and that should show everybody just how good Russell Wilson is.

15) Philadelphia Eagles

I keep waiting for the World Champion Eagles to show up and I am starting to believe it may never happen.

16) Green Bay Packers

The Packers literally fumbled away a golden opportunity to beat the Rams on Sunday. With a difficult schedule looming things could get rough in Title Town.

17) Dallas Cowboys

Will Amari Cooper put the Cowboys over the top? Probably not! But they have enough talent to stay in contention.

18) Atlanta Falcons

No team needed a bye week as bad as the Falcons. Will a few more healthy players help turn the Falcons season around?

19) Detroit Lions

The Lions had a chance to put themselves in the playoff mix on Sunday and they blew it.

20) Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck is a great quarterback and he is dragging the Colts on his back.

21) Tennessee Titans

After a 3-1 start, the Titans have hit a skid that is threatening to end their playoff dream early.

22) Denver Broncos

The Broncos need a more consistent offense and I don’t think that is going to happen this year.

23) Miami Dolphins

The record says 4-4, but when you watch them play they look like a bad football team.

24) Jacksonville Jaguars

Blake Bortles is taking down a very talented team.

25) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Winston is a bust so it looks like Fitz Magic time again.

26) Cleveland Browns

They are still a bad football team. On the bright side, Hue Jackson is gone.

27) New York Jets

The Jets are not very good, but they didn’t really expect to be.

28) Arizona Cardinals

Larry Fitzgerald is still a bad man.

29) Buffalo Bills

The Bills play hard, it’s just hard to win games in the NFL with no offense.

30) New York Giants

Actually, the Giants and the next two teams all deserve to be last.

31) Oakland Raiders

32) SF 49ers
