NFL Power Rankings: Week 6

Alright I know we are an NFL Draft site but the Power Rankings are going to play an important role here at NFL Mocks. These Rankings are how we will be determining the draft order for our Mock Drafts. So take a look a the Rankings and let us know what you think, as usual I expect some good feedback!  These rankings were completed by staff writer Jason Madson.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-1) I was worried about rust with Big Ben missing 4 weeks, but the Browns were a good warmup game for him.  The defense is playing better than expected.
.
.
2. New York Jets (5-1) They are a small step below the Steelers for the top spot, but its close.  With everybody getting healthy this will be a very dangerous team down the road.  Survived a scare this week, but those are expected.
.
.
3. New England Patriots (4-1)This team just keeps getting it done, no matter who they plug in.  Deion Branch had a huge game in his return to the Pats.
.
.
.
4. Baltimore Ravens (4-2)  Yes they suffered a tough defeat to the Pats this past week in which they lead most of the game, but this is still an incredibly good team.  The offense hasn’t hit on all cylinders yet, once they do Watch Out!
.
.
5. New York Giants (4-2) They got the win against the Lions, but it wasn’t easy.  The Giants head to Dallas this week in what should be a very tough game regardless of records.
.
.
6. Tennessee Titans (4-2) The Titans destroyed the Jags last night, but lost Vince Young to a sprained knee.  If he is out for an extended period of time, it could hurt the Titans season.
.
.
7. Philadelphia Eagles (4-2)  They blew out the Falcons on Sunday, Kolb had his best game of the season and all everyone can talk about is Vick’s absence from the sidelines.  Celebrate the win Eagles fans!  DeSean Jackson suffered a severe concussion and could miss multiple games.
.
8. New Orleans Saints (4-2)  The Saints went to Tampa Bay and destroyed an overachieving Bucs team on Sunday.  That is what they were supposed to do.  Don’t look past the Browns on your way to the Halloween showdown with the Steelers.
.
.
9. Indianapolis Colts (4-2) Indy always finds a way to get the job done, Peyton Manning is the biggest reason for that.  They had a tough game on Sunday night, but in the end the Colts outlasted the Redskins.
.
.
10.  Houston Texans (4-2)  Houston made the comeback of the day on Sunday, trailing by 10 in the 4th quarter to the Chiefs.  They came back to win it with some offensive firepower and late defense.  I’m still not sold on the Texans.
Check out the rest of the ranking after the Jump
11. Kansas City Chiefs (3-2)  Speaking of still not sold, the Chiefs defense looked good for three quarters.  Then the 4th quarter hit and everything went down hill.  Matt Cassel had a very good game, as did Dwayne Bowe.  They have to be the favorites in the AFC West.
.

12. Chicago Bears (4-2) The Bears were out played by the surprising Seahawks on Sunday.  This team is so up and down I’m not sure if they deserve this ranking, good thing they come out every week.

.

.

13. Atlanta Falcons (4-2) The Falcons D made Kevin Kolb look like a Pro Bowler on Sunday.  Thank goodness for Tony Gonzalez or they might not have made it into the endzone.
.
.
14. Miami Dolphins (3-2) This team can’t score, they need help on the offensive side of the ball.  That being said they pulled off an impressive win inside Lambeau Field. Cameron Wake has been a pass rushing fool, 6 sacks already this season.
.
.
15 Washington Redskins (3-3) They played a tough game Sunday night and just couldn’t pull it out.  I like the make up of this team and with the emergence of RB Ryan Torain, I think the Redskins will be a definite playoff contender.
.
.
16. Green Bay Packers (3-3)  The expectations were very high up in Wisconsin early in the season, but now the Packers have to fight to get back in the drivers seat.  I like the talent on this team and expect them to climb.
.
.
17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-2)  The young QB Freeman has really impressed me so far, he has turned into a pretty good player.  They still have a ways to go, but they are far from one of the worst teams in the NFL up to this point.
.
.
18. Seattle Seahawks (3-2)  Many expected this team to not even compete for 3 wins all season ( I said 6 wins), now they are tied for the top spot in the very winnable NFC West.  Hasselbeck looked better than he has in a long time on Sunday.
.
.
19. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-3) Yes they were blown out on MNF, but this team still has talent.  I think there is no way they make the playoffs, but the Jags will be a tough W for teams the remainder of the season.
.
.
20. Arizona Cardinals (3-2) They beat the Saints 2 weeks ago, had a bye last week and now they head to Seattle to play the Seahawks.  Max Hall has had 2 weeks to prepare for this game, just throw it to number 11!
.
.
.
.
.
21. Minnesota Vikings (2-3)  This team is in survival mode and it worked on Sunday.  Favre needs to just play the game and not worry about the rest, he is killing this team.  At least they have a good defense to lean on.  Favre meets with the NFL about the harassment case today.  I’m sure it won’t be mentioned anywhere else.
.
22. St. Louis Rams (3-3)  I am so impressed with rookie QB Sam Bradford, he looks like a vet out there.  He has a group of no name WR he is throwing to, including Danario Alexander who was just activated from the practice squad.  The defense is playing better than expected.
.
23. San Diego Chargers (2-4)  I can’t believe it happened this quickly.  The Chargers fall back to mediocrity took only one season, but its happened.  I’m not sure what this team needs, but adding Vincent Jackson might be a good start.
.
.
24. San Francisco 49ers (1-5)  Finally!  They picked up a win against the Raiders.  It’s funny to see people picking them to still win the division, that is until you look at the division.
.
.
25. Cincinnati Bengals (2-3)  This team is not good on offense.  I think the preseason hype about the high powered offense can finally die.  The defense isn’t bad, but not good enough to carry this team.
.
.
26. Dallas Cowboys (1-4)  I’m so confused by this team.  They are loaded with talent on both sides of the ball, but can’t win a game.  Maybe you can tell me what it is?
.
.
27. Denver Broncos (2-4) TIm Tebow scored his first NFL touchdown on Sunday, but the Broncos let the game slip away.
.
.
.
28. Oakland Raiders (2-4)  The Raiders need a QB in the worst way.  Campbell is getting an MRI on his knee this week and Gradkowski doubtful with his bad shoulder, Kyle Boller should get the start on Sunday in Denver.  Good Luck with that!
.
.
29. Detroit Lions (1-5) Calvin Johnson is really good.  That is about all I got for the Lions fans out there.
.
.
.
30. Cleveland Browns (1-5)  Colt McCoy’s first start against the NFL’s #1 defense wasn’t a complete disaster.  Maybe he will be the answer in Cleveland.
.
.
31. Buffalo Bills (0-5) I hope they enjoyed the Bye week, because they have a couple tough games coming up heading to both Baltimore and Kansas City.  0-7 is right around the corner.
.
32. Carolina Panthers (0-5)  This team needs so many pieces it’s not even fair.  If they were smart the Panthers would trade Steve Smith and DeAngelo Williams for as many draft picks as possible.  It’s time to start thinking about that number one pick Panthers fans.
