NFL power rankings week 9: Bye week

The Titans should hold steady in most power rankings around the internet today after being on the bye. This exercise gets easier and easier with each passing week because we pretty much know what teams are at this point.

I have been trying to identify teams that I still might be too high or too low on. The one that stood out to me this week was the Washington Redskins. They are apparently better than I have been giving them credit for. They are 5-2 and have a 2 game lead in the NFC East. I still don’t think they are a Super Bowl contender, but I did bump them up a little bit this week.

Here are my week 9 NFL power rankings:

  1. Los Angeles Rams (LW:1)
  2. Kansas City Chiefs (LW:2)
  3. New Orleans Saints (LW:3)
  4. New England Patriots (LW:4)
  5. Los Angeles Chargers (LW:6)
  6. Minnesota Vikings (LW:5)
  7. Carolina Panthers (LW:7)
  8. Philadelphia Eagles (LW:9)
  9. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW:10)
  10. Green Bay Packers (LW:8)
  11. Atlanta Falcons (LW:11)
  12. Cincinnati Bengals (LW:13)
  13. Baltimore Ravens (LW:12)
  14. Washington Redskins (LW:17)
  15. Chicago Bears (LW:15)
  16. Houston Texans (LW:18)
  17. Detroit Lions (LW:14)
  18. Seattle Seahawks (LW:20)
  19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW:16)
  20. Miami Dolphins (LW:19)
  21. Tennessee Titans (LW:21)
  22. Indianapolis Colts (LW:27)
  23. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW:22)
  24. Denver Broncos (LW:23)
  25. Dallas Cowboys (LW:24)
