With week six of the NFL in the books, here are the InscriberMag’s NFL Power Rankings.
1.) San Diego Chargers (5-1, – ): Narrowly escaping the winless Raiders, Philip Rivers continues to add to his early-season MVP numbers.
2.) Denver Broncos (4-1, 3): Peyton Manning continues to add to his inevitable Hall-of-Fame legend in throwing three more touchdowns at the expense of the Jets.
4.) Green Bay Packers (4-2, 6): Somewhere Dan Marino blushed at how Aaron Rodgers fake-spiked his old team.
5.) Indianapolis Colts (4-2, 7): Andrew Luck and the Colts made a loud statement to J.J. Watt and the hard-charging Texans, that the AFC South is still their division.
6.) San Francisco 49ers (4-2, 8): For a team that allegedly hates its coach, the Niners have no problems in beating up on their opponents, as they did to the soon-to-be Los Angeles Rams.
7. Philadelphia Eagles (5-1, 9): The loss of scatback Darren Sproles to a torn MCL will hurt the Eagles in more ways than they think.
8. Baltimore Ravens (4-2, 10): a 48-17 thrashing of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, moves the Crows up a bit.
9. Arizona Cardinals (4-1, 11): With Carson Palmer back under center, look for the Cardinals to soar.
10. New England Patriots (4-2, 12): Back-to-back dominating wins over the Bengals and Bills, have many wondering are the Pats back?
11. Seattle Seahawks (3-2, 2): After a rare home loss, are the Hawk’s sleepless in the Emerald City?
12. Cincinnati Bengals (3-1-1, 5): A tie, Bengals, seriously?
13. Detroit Lions (4-2, 17): Maybe the Lions should play the Vikings more outdoors, perhaps?
15. Houston Texans (3-2, 14): Memo to Texans—you may want to cover T.Y. Hilton next time.
16. Carolina Panthers (3-2-1, – ): Earning a road tie vs. the Bengals is one thing, but the best team in the NFC South? barely.
17. Chicago Bears (3-3, 23): The consistent inconsistencies of Jay Cutler to both vex and amaze the Bears.
18. New York Giants (3-3, 13): Tough break for the G-Men in losing slot receiver Victor Cruz and getting blown out by 27 points.
19. Buffalo Bills (3-3, 15): New owner, same story vs. Tom Brady
20. New Orleans Saints (2-3, – ): A week off, after beating the Bucs, 37-31 may do the Saints some good as they travel to Detroit.
21. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3, 19): An offense that looked out of sync and a defense that looked way past it’s prime in a humiliating 21-point loss to the Browns, may signal some changes in the Steel City.
22. Kansas City Chiefs (2-3, – ): One week after losing to the Niners out in Santa Clara, the Chiefs now have to fly back out west to tangle with the high-flying Chargers.
23. Atlanta Falcons (2-4, 21): Is it now time to turn up the heat on Mike Smith and company?
24. Miami Dolphins (2-3, – ): Getting Marino-spiked by A-Rod, doesn’t do enough poetic justice to the hangover in South Beach.
25. Minnesota Vikings (2-4, – ): Bridgewater came back, but was sunk by a Lions team playing OUTDOORS. What is wrong with this picture?
26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-5, – ): Giving up 38 first-half points at home to Joe Flacco? Talk about a bad day at the office.
27. St. Louis Rams (1-4, – ): Perhaps a change in scenery might do this team some good? Say it with me! Los Angeles Rams.
28. Washington Redskins (1-5, – ): Time to end the Kirk Cousins era, get ready Colt McCoy!
29. Tennessee Titans (2-4, 30): Despite a narrow two-point win over the winless Jags, the Titans still have Charlie Whitehurst as their QB, which is just sad.
30. New York Jets (1-5, 29): Being a footnote in Peyton Manning’s touchdown record march still sucks. Oh! And Tom Brady is next!
31. Oakland Raiders (0-5, 32): Going toe-to-toe with Philip Rivers merits a slight bump, The Silver and Black have something in Derek Carr.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-6, 31): The Jags just can’t close the deal, first against Pittsburgh, then last Sunday against Tennessee. Guess who is coming to town now, Yup! the hottest—and luckiest team—in the league in the Brian Hoyer-led Browns.
