Week 9 featured some big wins, and some bad losses.
Another crazy week in the NFL has led to a lot of movement in the power rankings.
We are starting to find out who are contenders and who are pretenders.
Who's trending up and who's fading down? Here are our official power rankings heading into week 10!
1) EAGLES: Doug and Wentz remain atop the NFL as they continue to roll. They just steamrolled the Broncos, putting up 51 points on one of the leagues so called best defenses. The Eagles are the best team in the NFL and anyone who tries to tell you differently doesn't have a clue.
2) PATRIOTS: I can't advance a team after being on a bye, can't knock them either. Nor is there any reason too as 2nd is right where they belong. Expect to see a big win from the patriots this upcoming week after a long rest.
3) SAINTS: For those who are paying attention, and those who aren't, that's 6 wins in a row for the Saints. Need I remind you Sean Payton and Drew Brees have hoisted the Lombardi trophy and I'm sure they are dying to hoist it once more.
4) STEELERS: The most explosive team in the NFL remains at 4 coming off the bye. But lets not forget how scary they are. We didn't get to hear the names of Leveon Bell and Antonio Brown this week, but turn on NFL red zone or watch any highlight reel when the Steelers are not on a bye and you can guarantee to hear both, often.
5) RAMS: Sean McVay is giving Doug Pederson a run for his money for coach of the year. This team is 6-2 and could easily be 8-0. Nice to see Goff connect with Sammy Watkins, opposing defenses better look out. The rams are for real.
6) VIKINGS: This team remains at 6 after the bye week for that reason only. I can't knock them for having a bye. That being said, expect the next few teams on this list to pass them, soon. I hate to knock the Vikings but their starting QB is Case Keenum, and the next 3 teams on this list will likely surpass him.
7) COWBOYS: As an eagles fan this is hard to write. Jason Garrett clearly knows how to coach, Zeke Elliot is a freak, Dak Prescott is really good, and they have the best o-line in the league. Who knows what's going to happen with this suspension, but Dallas is certainly a serious contender, with or without Zeke .
8) PANTHERS: Huge win for Cam against a division rival. The panthers didn't let two early fumbles this past week impact them. It wasn't the prettiest of wins but often times divisional games aren't pretty. The Panthers are right there with the rest of the top teams in the NFC.
9) CHEIFS: Andy Reid is lucky the NFL is so bad. That's the only reason his team gets to stay in the top 10, for now. They better start figuring out how to stop teams when it matters and start using all their talent or else things could get ugly in Kansas City.
10) SEAHAWKS: A home loss this week, after what was almost a home loss last week. Seattle will bounce back but I am not impressed. They have no run game and an atrocious offensive line. Week after week Russell Wilson continues to run for his life. Pete Carroll is a good coach but at this point I imagine he is screaming just like Jenny in Forrest Gump. "Run Russell Run!"
11) JAGUARS: For the first time all year the Jaguars have cracked the top 12. I honestly am not a believer in Blake Bortles or Doug Marrone but if/when they prove me wrong, it won't be the first time.
12) TITANS: First place in their division. Murray/Henry is a 1-2 punch that can open up the door for Mariota to air it out. This team will hang around the 10-12 area with no Deshaun Watson but they are no where near contending for the Lombardi trophy this season.
ON THE BUBBLE:
REDSKINS: This team has had a tough schedule to start the season. They have also been plagued by injuries and still they are 4-4. Said it before Kirk Cousins is a hell of a competitor. YOU LIKE THAT?!
BILLS: A bad loss to the Jets knocks them out of our top 12, but there is plenty of season left for Bills mafia. I agree with Richie Incognito, Thursday night football sucks.
Falcons: This team looks bad. Matt Ryan looks bad. The good news is they still get to play Tampa bay twice. I'm not ready to count them out just yet.
TEXANS: With the loss of Deshaun Watson (and JJWATT), this likely be the last time this team is mentioned on this segment. I would love to see Cardinal O'Hara product Tom Savage prove me wrong.
