12 oz Power Rankings
They may have lost, but I still don’t see a team I believe is better (including Indy).
Bye week sees the Saints staying put.
A good road win in Arizona, but nothing too impressive.
I like this team, just not enough to move them to the top (even with their 7-0 record).
With losses by the Bears and Lions, the Packers are back atop the division – to stay.
After a rocky start to the season, the 49ers seem to be back on track.
An impressive road win in Detroit. When Dalton protects the ball, the Bengals are tough.
Impressive wins over Den, Sea and SF, but losses to SD and Mia keep the Colts from climbing higher.
A loss to the Bengals is not a bad loss and this Lions team has a potent offense.
Iffy call aside, the Patriots played poorly and lost an 11 point lead to Geno Smith.
The teams they have beat (NYG, Wash, Phi, StL) are a combined 9-18.
At 3-3, I may have to start eating crow on Newton.
They aren’t the team they were last year. But they aren’t as bad as they have played.
If Phillip Rivers is back, this is a decent team…not a playoff team.
The healthy Bears are better than 15 – but they aren’t healthy. Peppered with big injuries, the Bears are trying to tread water.
A decent team in a tough division. They will get better.
A big surprise in 2013. A good defense and respectable passing game.
If Vick is healthy, they are higher than 18. I don’t think Vick can stay healthy.
After starting 3-0, the Dolphins are being welcomed back to reality.
Thad Lewis looks pretty competent.
Moving up simply based on big injuries on the teams below them.
2-4, Jones is out for the year, White and Jackson are still out = trouble for the Falcons.
A big win against the Ravens shows the Steelers are not dead.
Take away the questionable Patriots game, and the record of the other 3 teams they have beaten is 5-14.
Pryor and the defense have been much better than I expected and they are still just 2-4.
Jason Campbell may be better than Weeden, but this team is still not a good football team.
They have had a lot of injuries, but not sure I recall a worse preseason Super Bowl contender.
Kellen Clemens = QB. Zac Stacy = RB. Rams = Bad
The winning team of a disgraceful game.
Freeman is not as bad as he was on Monday, but this team still is not good.
The first NFL seat will open in Tampa Bay and will open soon.
The 2008 Lions are starting to get nervous.
