GMenHQ NFL Power Rankings

While there were some wild games and endings this week, the outcomes were predictable.  I had 7 players pick every game correct this past week in my pool.  Here we go with the Week 7 rankings.

1. Atlanta: Their test starts this week.  Philly, Dallas and New Orleans are all in need of a win.

2. Giants: Perhaps the most complete team.  The defense bends, the offense moves at will.

3. Chicago: Nice showing by the defense, but the competition really wasn’t there.  They really see nothing for a while with Carolina and Tennessee up next.

4. Houston: Nice bounce back. Bye week this week to get everything back in order.

5. Green Bay: The loss of Woodson could be big here but with Jacksonville and Arizona up next, it won’t show up for a while.

6. San Fran: Struggled against the Seahawks, but did win. Next up a flailing Arizona team on Monday night.  Offense needs to step it up.

7. New England: Defensive secondary still weak, but offense looking better. Schedule is favorable.

8. Pittsburgh: If they could actually catch Ben’s passes, they would be more impressive. Washington will test their hurting defense.

9. Minnesota: With Arizona and Tampa next they should hang around the NFC North … but that will be the winningest division overall this year.

10. Denver: The Broncos sneak back into the top 10 momentarily.  They will need to start winning regularly to stay.

11. Washington: Losing to the Giants is not the end of the world.  That offensive scheme will beat a lot of people if they can stay healthy.

12. Miami: A win over The Jets in New York will move this team to new heights if they pull it off.  Two weeks to prepare.

13. Baltimore: I’m afraid this might be the first stop off this falling elevator.  Need to find an answer for injuries on defense.

14.Seattle: Nice showing against San Fran, but again this isn’t soccer, they need to score more points.

15. Arizona: The other falling elevator in the group.  From 4-0 to 4-3.  San Fran on Monday.

After some of the performances last week, I am tempted to stop here, but it’s early….

16. Dallas: So Romo isn’t the worst QB in the NFC this week, but losing another piece on their offensive line could spell doom.  Giants in town this Sunday.

17. Buffalo: Points for only losing by one?  The defense has completely disappeared.  With Houston and New England up next, that’s not going to cut it.

18. Cincinnati: Lost the week before the Big game, then lost the Big game.

19. Philly: Need wins versus Atlanta and New Orleans to show the world Andy Reid is not done and changes were warranted.

20. San Diego: The schedule might help after the bye week.  Cleveland, K.C., Tampa before a re-match with Peyton.

The Rest: The Jets, Detroit, St. Louis, Tampa, New Orleans, Tennessee, Oakland, Indy, Carolina, Cleveland, K.C. Jacksonville
