2010 NFL Power Rankings Week 6

Share

The (4-1) Baltimore Ravens stay atop the #1 spot in our rankings after dismantling the (2-3) Denver Broncos 31-17. One of the biggest falls is the (3-2) New Orleans Saints; after losing to the (3-2) Arizona Cardinal, the Super Bowl hangover is happening right before our eyes.

The (3-2) Houston Texans also dropped way down the list, and the (2-3) San Diego Chargers are no longer serious contenders after losing to the (2-3) Oakland Raiders.

Ravens

4-1-0 Has wins over two of the best teams in the league already. (Rob)
2
Steelers
3-1-0 They can only improve on offense with Big Ben back.  We know their defense is excellent. (Gene)
3
Jets
4-1-0 Huge Monday night win, Holmes will make this team even better. (Rob)
4
Colts
3-2-0 Their pass rush is explosive, but their run defense is porous. Peyton Manning is their best shot. (Conoon)
5 Giants 3-2-0 They’re rebounding nicely under Coughlin. (Alex)
6
Patriots
3-1-0 Their blowout game against Miami was not convincing. They still have a terrible defense. Let’s see what they can do against Baltimore. (Conoon)
7
Falcons
4-1-0 Moving up on the depth charts— starting to put it all together now. (Gene)
8 Packers 3-2-0 Rodgers better get healthy. (Alex)
9 Saints 3-2-0 Elite teams can overcome their turnovers… this team is no longer elite. (Rob)
10
Bears
4-1-0 Mike Martz has a stellar back with Matt Forte. (Alex)
11 Eagles 3-2-0 It’s always nice to win with an inferior QB at the helm. (Rob)
12 Titans 3-2-0 Knocked out the Cowboys. They are making noise. (Gene)
13
Texans
3-2-0 I knew a weak defense would hurt them later in the season, now the offense is affected by it. (Conoon)
14 Chiefs 3-1-0 Battled well against Indy. Showing they are for real for the time being. (Gene)
15 Redskins 3-2-0 So far the best team in their division. They will be tested against the Colts next week. (Conoon)

This week’s rankings were based on a poll of our staff writers: Conoon Kim, Gene Winner, Rob Brown, and Alex Bishop.
