NFL Week 7 Power Rankings

2009 NFL Football Power Ratings

Each week during the heart of the NFL season, and once or twice during the NFL Preseason, we’ll gather the troops around the roundtable and hash out the NFL Power rankings. We check out the stats, looks at the records, and, most importantly, we take a close, close look at the heart of each team. We encourage you to come back each week and see how the NFL Power Rankings have changed.

NFL Power Rankings will be updated by Friday every week. Be sure to visit our home page for more articles and NFL analysis.

Its with this knowledge that we can then deliver to you The NFL Power Rankings!

This Week Last Week Record Comment
1 2 New Orleans 5–0 2007 Patriots, say hello to the 2009 Saints
2 3 Indianapolis 5–0 With the bye week they will have had 2 weeks to get ready for the Rams; think that’s enough prep time?

4 1 New York Giants 5–1 Injuries are starting to take a toll
5 5 Denver 6–0 Josh McDaniels may never have to pay for another meal in Denver

17 19 Arizona 3–2 Cards seem to be a better team on the road than at home and they still have games to play at St. Louis, Tennessee and Detroit
18 16 San Diego 2–3 Norv Turner might want to start thinking about putting his house up for sale

22 22 Seattle 2–4 41 points at home one week, 3 at home the next; go figure
23 25 Buffalo 2–4 Ironic, isn’t it, that the coach who rarely says anything (Jauron) is able to shut up the one who never stops talking (Ryan)
24 23 Carolina 2–3 Conundrum: Panthers need to run the ball to win, but that shuts down their best player (WR Steve Smith)

32 31 Tampa Bay 0–6 Competitive last week against Carolina, but don’t expect the same thing Sunday in London against New England

  1. After Monday night game I think you have to give a bit more respect to the Denver Broncos. I was probably the biggest skeptic of all, but they are one of the top four teams in the NFL right now.
