Well folks, it’s that time of the week again, time for the fifth instalment of my NFL Power Rankings, and with things still setting in the NFL, we have even more changes in this weeks list. It was another really good set of games this week, which included thrillers in Houston, Atlanta, Buffalo and London. It also gave us some very dominant performances by superstars once again *cough Peyton Manning *cough. But that’s enough rambling here, lets talk the top ten teams in the NFL according to myself, so lets start with some familiarity at the top of the list…

    Not so sure about the top four. Denver over Seattle, and no way do the Patriots belong here.

    • Matt Wincherauk

      Why don’t the Pats belong in the top 4? They’re undefeated, and beat a very legit Falcons team, shorthanded, and in Atlanta. And Denver has had the easiest schedule so far, beating up on some very bad to mediocre teams.

    The 9ers have faced 3 playoff teams, incl. Seattle on the road. The Pats have faced..well..nobody except for the underperforming Falcons. The Lions and the Saints also have beaten up some pretty bad teams. Seems like all these teams are ranked too high. I’d take the 9ers straight up against those three teams.

    • Matt Wincherauk

      Except the 49ers got their asses kicked by the Seahawks and Colts in back to back weeks. There’s a difference between facing three playoff teams, and actually winning those games. Besides, didn’t the 49ers just beat up on a terrible team as well?

      • Drclaw99

        fair enough. I’d still take the 9ers heads up over the Lions, the Bears and the Saints though.

        • Matt Wincherauk

          I probably would as well, but right now I just think those three teams have been playing football. I defended the 49ers last week and kept them on the list even, I still need a little more time to see if they continue to bounce back, or if they put up another stinker vs a good team. If this was based purely on the talent level of each team, the 49ers would have to be in the top three, but performance wise, they haven’t been playing up to the standard.

          • Matt Wincherauk

            *better football sorry.

          • Drclaw99

            tsk..you’re using LOGIC! And you’re reasonable..how odd. I expect them to gash the Texans fairly well, given it’s a home game, and the 9ers have had a lot of rest. If Seattle can run on them with their line, then the 9ers should be able to as well, and it will be interesting to see how the handle Watt. Given the way the Texas O-line played..I also expect to see Lemon and Bowman making life difficult for Schaub. As Walsh once said abour DeBerg “He’s good enough to get you beat”.

            Of course, the one thing we can predict is that there is a lot of unpredictability these days. Nothing is a gimmie.
