NFL Power Rankings Week 7: Broncos, Chiefs, Seahawks top list

With another week of NFL action in the books, it is time to update the weekly power rankings. As is normally the case, the Denver Broncos sit comfortably at the top, but the Kansas City Chiefs have continued their steady climb to the top and now sit at No. 2. It is appropriate to have the only remaining undefeated teams at the top, but there are plenty of impressive contenders.

The Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots round out the top five.

Two of the biggest movers in this week’s rankings are going the wrong way, with the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons plummeting down the ranks as they continue their losing ways.

Where does your team come in on the list?

Here are the power rankings heading in to Week 5 of the regular season:

    Yesh, the Raiders should be in the bottom 1/3. Whatzup with the ATL ranking though? 1 – 5 and ranked 24th?

    • Richard Halvorson

      You think a 1-5 team should be ranked higher?

      • Bob

        Lower. Below the 2 – 4 teams.

      • Cory Schuttler

        first off there 1-4 not 1-5

  • Nathan Kearns

    Rams at 20th? Get that nonsense out of here :) I know it is difficult to get over the Week 3 and Week 4, but they are in the past now…

    Great rankings, as always!

    I would have ranked the Pats above the Saints. Won w/out Gronk and a few big in-game injuries. Not a big qualm from me, but I also think you have to give the team that won the nod (that’s a crutch argument, though, as a stand-alone statement). Btw, nobody should be sleeping on NE’s DBs. Talib destroys possession WRs, Kyle Arrington is really good in the slot, Dennard is solid, and nobody likes throwing on D-Mac. Gregory at SS is the only weakness, but he is playing better than he did last year.

    Dallas is still ranked way too high.

  • Michael O’Connor

    How is Carolina ahead of the Bills?? They beat two teams with a record of 1 -10. The Bills beat them and the Super Bowl Champs! Just plain silly!

  • Fernando Garci-Crespo C

    I love my chiefs, but #5 seem a bit more realistic. Because we have nothing to show on O.

  • Jonathon Fryman

    Your rankings are terrible. The cowboys above the Lions? THE BEARS ABOVE THE LIONS? The Lions have same record in same division, and beat up the Bears pretty easily in my recolection.

  • Herman Moore

    I’m amused by all these power rankings that have the Bears in the top 10, when they barely beat two of the worst teams in the league, and got their ass handed to them by the Lions.
