NFL Power Rankings Week 7 – 2011

by Paul Raymond | Posted on Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

This was a really exciting weekend in the NFL, lot’s of great games. What amazes me is that we’re entering Week 7 of the NFL season and the middle of the pack is still so tight. I mean really, there’s still a good chance that a team like the Eagles at 2-4 makes the playoffs while a team like the Steelers or Giants at 4-2 miss.

1. Green Bay Packers
2. New England Patriots
3. San Francisco 49ers
4. Baltimore Ravens
5. Detroit Lions
6. San Diego Chargers
7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
8. New Orleans Saints
9. Buffalo Bills
10. Pittsburgh Steelers

11. New York Giants
12. Tennessee Titans
13. Oakland Raiders
14. Cincinnati Bengals
15. Houston Texans
16. Washington Redskins
17. Atlanta Falcons
18. New York Jets
19. Chicago Bears
20. Philadelphia Eagles
21. Seattle Seahawks

22. Dallas Cowboys
23. Kansas City Chiefs
24. Cleveland Browns
25. Arizona Cardinals
26. Carolina Panthers
27. Denver Broncos
28. Jacksonville Jaguars
29. Minnesota Vikings
30. St. Louis Rams
31. Miami Dolphins
32. Indianapolis Colts

Quick Thoughts

– Detroit takes a slight drop after a tough loss but with it being against the also 5-1 Niners, they stay in the Top 5 but get leaped frog by those Niners.

– The Giants are also a mover this week after beating the Buffalo Bills. This was the first game all year where I felt the Giants played like a solid team, even with the few big plays they let up on defense. Because of that reasoning, I can’t yet put them back into the Top 10.

– There was a huge battle in the NFC Central between the Saints and Bucs, thanks to the Bucs win they move ahead of the Saints who take a slight tumble in the rankings.

– The Colts continue to bring up the rear at 0-6.

– The Eagles move back into the Top 20 thanks to their win over what was appearing to be a solid Redskins team. I think this is the beginning of the end to the Redskins season, thanks to the reappearance of the real Rex Grossman.

– The Raiders are now 4-2 and moving up my rankings quickly. With them adding a QB of Carson Palmer’s caliber I think they’ll be moving into the Top 10 quickly.
