NFL Power Rankings Week 6: The Broncos Aren’t Number One (OK, Fine, We’re Joking)

NFL Power Rankings

NFL Week 5 is over. NFL Week 6 is coming. Here are our Power Rankings in advance of this momentous occasion. The Minnesota Vikings, Pittsburgh Steelers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Potato Skins are coming off bye weeks. The Denver Broncos didn’t rise, because you can’t be better than number one. The Dallas Cowboys rose despite losing. The New Orleans Saints rose, because they won. The Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions fell. Other teams moved. Are you interested yet? I’ll stop typing and show you the rankings.

Our rankings are based mainly on the thoughts of oddsmakers, via futures odds and current point spreads. There are minor tweaks based on ambiguity. These power rankings are not my power rankings. As I will reiterate all year, I’m not an expert, because nobody is an expert.

    Giants, Steelers (0-4) and Falcons (1-3) above the Jets (3-2)? you must be kidding.

    Packers at #3? Texans at #10? both are a reach. I’d say the top 2 are on point

    it is based mostly on oddsmakers’ power ratings, as i wrote in the intro!

    the falcons were 10-point favorites over the jets yesterday, and would likely still be, say, 7-point favorites if the game were re-played

    the steelers opened as 2.5 point road favorites over the jets, and now are still just 2.5-point underdogs, which means thato ddsmakers see them as slightly better.

    the giants might be underdogs to the jets in a hypothetical matchup, but i am not 100% sure.

    i’m a jets fan!

    CIN is 3-2 and they’re better than the 5-0 Chiefs? This ranking was clearly made up by a crack smoker.
