NFL Week 9 is over. NFL Week 10 is coming. Here are our Power Rankings in advance of this momentous occasion. This week was Opposite Week, with the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Philadelphia Eagles making their case for rising, and the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints making theirs for dropping. (Though, in actuality, the Saints rose, due to the Packers free-falling.)
Everybody that comments on these fails to understand that these rankings are not my rankings, or SportsGrid’s rankings, they are intended to be very close to the power ratings made by oddsmakers. These rankings are very similar to the ones that make point spreads. As I will reiterate all year, I’m not an expert, because nobody is an expert.
