Danny O'Neil's NFL power rankings
Last week's rankings in parentheses
Team Comment
1. Atlanta (1) Red flag? Hardly. Falcons have been penalized a league-low 18 times.
2. Houston (2) Can you literally run a player into the ground? Texans seem to be trying with Arian Foster.
3. San Francisco (6) Niners have held three of their last four opponents without a touchdown.
4. Chicago (4) Jay Cutler one of the only players in the league unafraid to be Suh'd.
5. N.Y. Giants (5) Who boos Cruz? No one in New York. Victor tied for league lead with seven TD catches.
6. Denver (8) Broncos 3-0 when they score more than 30, 0-3 when they don't.
7. Green Bay (7) Packers running low on healthy receivers, a problem since they're playing catch-up.
8. Baltimore (3) Injuries to Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb don't explain why Joe Flacco played so poorly.
9. New England (9) Patriots have been outscored 34-6 in the fourth quarter of their past three games.
10. Seattle (10) Wrestlemania came to Seattle. Once. Russell-mania may be here to stay.
11. Philadelphia (11) Has anyone checked to see if Michael Vick has a fork stuck in him? He looks done.
12. Miami (17) Dolphins receivers may not be the best, but they do have a Bess. Davone Bess.
13. Washington (13) RG III an indisputably superior sequel to last year's RG at QB: Rex Grossman.
14. Minnesota (12) That stinker of a game Thursday enough to make you ponder Christian's ability.
15. Dallas (19) Cowboys' three victories have come by a total of 18 points, their three losses by 38.
16. Pittsburgh (22) Remember when Troy Polamalu starred in football games, not commercials? Me neither.
17. Arizona (15) Now that's the train wreck of an offense we expected when this Cardinals season began.
18. Detroit (14) Lions may be king of the jungle, but not in Detroit. Tigers currently own that honor.
19. San Diego (16) Difference between traffic cones and the Chargers' O-line? Cones are more durable.
20. Tampa Bay (24) Giants' game-winning TD last week showed Bucs don't come equipped with Cruz control.
21. St. Louis (20) TE Matthew Mulligan just sounds like someone who wants more chances.
22. Cincinnati (18) Bengals outscoring opponents 102-72 in 1st half, getting outscored 115-64 in 2nd.
23. Tennessee (21) A statement that's about more than spelling: There's no 'D' in Tennessee.
24. N.Y. Jets (23) The Jets need a tent for their circus: They should try one of Rex Ryan's old shirts.
25. Indianapolis (27) The devil may care? Reggie Wayne has 666 yards receiving through six games.
26. New Orleans (26) Filing order: "Too little" followed by "Saints comeback" followed by "Too late."
27. Buffalo (25) Ryan Air = Irish airline. Ryan err = Fitzpatrick's crucial INT last week.
28. Oakland (28) Some guy named Brandon Myers is leading the Raiders in receptions.
29. Kansas City (30) Brady Quinn's promotion means the Chiefs' Matt Cassel is no longer under seige.
30. Carolina (29) Sure looked like Cam Newton wore a Snuggie to last week's postgame press conference.
31. Cleveland (31) Browns' sale turned out to be a Banner day in Cleveland. Joe Banner, new CEO.
32. Jacksonville (32) A game of inches? Jags more concerned with a foot. Maurice Jones-Drew's foot.
