NFL Power Rankings week 6: Broncos, Saints hang on to top spots


Five teams entered the week undefeated, but only three came away with their unblemished records intact. The Denver Broncos, New Orleans Saints and Kansas City Chiefs all went on the road against tough opponents to earn the win and they have been rewarded with the top three spots in this week’s power rankings.

The Indianapolis Colts continued their climb up to No. 4, thanks to a big win over the previously unbeaten Seattle Seahawks.

At the bottom of the rankings, we have the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars and the NFC Jaguars, the New York Giants. It’s hard to say which team has been worse, but they’ve both been awful and well-deserving of the bottom billing.

    Don’t know why a team is behind the team the just beat and have the same record. Raiders and Chargers need to be reversed.

    • Mark Shafer

      That is because these power rankings are not worth the bar napkin that they a written on. I wish they would have left us at 32. Remember they thought we might not win a game!

    It makes sense that the winning team that beat the other team be ranked above the team they beat. That was for all the Hawks fans that are about to descend upon you w/ complaints about their ranking.

  • Angel Becerra

    Don’t understand how Atlanta being 1-4 can rank almost in middle. I would have thought they would be towards the bottom.
