Things were pretty static at the top of the Power Rankings, thanks to impressive victories by the Texans, Bears and Giants. There was a shakeup at the bottom, though, as the Browns finally climbed out of the number 32 hole. 1. Atlanta Falcons (6-0) LW: 1 The Dirty Birds were off this week but maintained their grip on the number one spot, thanks to being undefeated. 2. Houston Texans (6-1) LW: 2 Houston absolutely demolished the Ravens, widening the gap between the Texans and everyone else in the AFC. 3. Chicago Bears (5-1) LW: 3 It wasn’t pretty, but the Bears took down the Lions on Monday night, improving to 5-1 and staying at the No. 3 spot. 4. New York Giants (5-2) LW: 4 Another late game gem from Eli Manning avoided a loss to RGIII and the Redskins. 5. San Francisco 49ers (5-2) LW: 6 The Niners beat the Seahawks in a defensive struggle Thursday night in a newly-improved division battle. 6. Minnesota Vikings (5-2) LW: 7 The Vikings keep doing it even though most people are waiting for them to fall apart. 7. Green Bay Packers (4-3) LW: 8 Aaron Rodgers seems to have his swagger back, as all the hip kids say, and the Packers are back to their winning ways. 8. Baltimore Ravens (5-2) LW: 5 The Ravens continued their trend of looking either really great or really horrible Sunday, looking really, really horrible against the Texans. 9. New England Patriots (4-3) LW: 10 The Patriots edged out the Jets in an overtime battle, which probably says more about the Patriots’ struggles than the Jets’ productivity. 10. Arizona Cardinals (4-3) LW: 9 The Cards have lost three straight and are in danger of sliding out of the Top Ten. 11. Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) LW: 11 12. Seattle Seahawks (4-3) LW: 12 13. Denver Broncos (3-3) LW: 13 14. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-3) LW: 16 15. San Diego Chargers (3-3) LW: 14 16. Cincinnati Bengals (3-4) LW: 15 17. Washington Redskins (3-4) LW: 17 18. Miami Dolphins (3-3) LW: 20 19. Dallas Cowboys (3-3) LW: 22 20. Indianapolis Colts (3-3) LW: 24 21. Buffalo Bills (3-4) LW: 18 22. St. Louis Rams (3-4) LW: 19 23. New York Jets (3-4) LW: 21 24. Tennessee Titans (3-4) LW: 25 25. New Orleans Saints (2-4) LW: 26 26. Oakland Raiders (2-4) LW: 27 27. Detroit Lions (2-4) LW: 23 28. Kansas City Chiefs (1-5) LW: 28 29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-4) LW: 30 30. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) LW: 29 31. Cleveland Browns (1-6) LW: 32 32. Carolina Panthers (1-5) LW: 31 The Panthers have finally, after seven weeks, supplanted the Browns as the worst team, according to the tonyblogs.net Power Rankings. Congrats, Cleveland, at least you’re making progress.
