Danny O'Neil's NFL power rankings
Team (last week) Comment
1. Atlanta (1) Eggs that greeted Saints in Atlanta was nothing compared to egg Saints laid in Atlanta.
2. San Francisco (2) Colin is nimble, Colin is quick, Alex Smith bummed at getting Kaepernicked.
3. Baltimore (3) It takes two: Ravens have outscored opponents by 52 points in the second half.
4. Houston (5) Texans have given up more than 30 points in each of their past two games.
5. Denver (7) Broncos are 7-0 when they score more than 30 points, 1-3 when they don't.
6. New England (6) Things are pointing up for New England, which averaged 47.5 the past four games.
7. Chicago (8) Bear market a real downer. They've held six of their 11 opponents to 20 points or fewer.
8. N.Y. Giants (9) Case for the defense: Giants have yet to lose when they score more than 20, going 7-0.
9. Green Bay (4) Packers don't have a giant problem at 7-4, but they had a Giants problem last Sunday.
10. Washington (15) RG III actually ranks IV: The rookie is No. 4 in the league in passer rating.
11. Indianapolis (14) Lady Luck? Nope. That would be Mr. Luck who has won five of past six starts.
12. Cincinnati (17) Bengals bidding to become NFL's least-impressive playoff team for a second consecutive year.
13. Tampa Bay (12) What's it called when Greg Schiano gets real mad? A Tampa tantrum.
14. Pittsburgh (11) Same (very) old story for a Steelers team that's not getting any younger.
15. Seattle (10) Seahawks one of four teams that has yet to score more than 30 points in a game.
16. Minnesota (16) Vikings' final five games against opponents whose current records are a combined 36-18-1.
17. New Orleans (13) Gone with the wind? Nope. Saints' playoff hopes blown by Brees' five INTs vs. Atlanta.
18. Miami (19) The glass might be half full for Dolphins, but that stadium certainly looked half empty.
19. Dallas (20) "Cowboy Up" was once the Red Sox motto. Cowboys down is a Dallas reality.
20. Carolina (29) Panthers could take a cue from the state's hoops legacy by learning to rebound.
21. Detroit (18) Well, you can't say Ndamukong Suh doesn't provide a real kick in the pants.
22. San Diego (22) The overtime defeat last week to Baltimore was crushing even by Norv Turner's standards.
23. N.Y. Jets (25) This season looks like the one type of gut check that Rex Ryan could fail.
24. Tennessee (21) Only the Raiders are allowing more points this season than the Titans.
25. St. Louis (28) CB Janoris Jenkins has scored two TDs. That's good. So has RB Steven Jackson. That's bad.
26. Buffalo (24) Bills failed to score 20 points in three of their previous four games.
27. Arizona (27) Cards averaged 22.8 points during 4-0 start, 12.7 in 0-7 skid since then.
28. Cleveland (30) First thing's worst: Browns outscored 63-37 in the first quarter this season.
29. Philadelphia (23) We've got a floater: Andy Reid is belly-up in the tank.
30. Jacksonville (31) Only one of the Jags' final five opponents currently holds a winning record.
31. Oakland (26) No defense at all for the 42.3 points Raiders have allowed the past four games.
32. Kansas City (32) Arian Foster has two more touchdowns than the Chiefs' entire team.
