NFL Week 9 Power Rankings: Broncos, Chiefs, Colts, Patriots, Bengals, Chargers and More
The AFC continues to be the weaker conference overall, with only 6 teams over .500. What does that mean for your team though? See where they rank in this week’s AFC Power Rankings:
#1 Denver Broncos
Not much to complain about in Denver right now. The defense stepped up big time against the Redskins a few weeks ago and they are coming off of a bye.
#2 Kansas City Chiefs
Yes, this team is undefeated, but they have been unimpressive the last few weeks against back up Quarterbacks and have only beaten 1 team with a winning record (Cowboys).
#3 Indianapolis Colts
I don’t think this team is nearly as good without Reggie Wayne. Luck has been great at coming back, but doesn’t seem to know how to put teams away as a frontrunner.
#4 New England Patriots
What a huge mental boost the Pats offense got Sunday against the Steelers. Putting up 55 points (most of the year for any team) is no joke, no matter whom you are playing.
#5 Cincinnati Bengals
This team is hard to read. Beating solid teams one week, then choking against inferior teams the following. I still don’t believe Andy Dalton has what it takes to get them where they want to go.
#6 San Diego Chargers
This team gave away a win after having 1st and goal and failing to score Sunday. With an outside chance at a Wild Card though, this team has still overachieved.
#7 Tennessee Titans
The Titans beat a struggling Rams team on Sunday, but it was road win nonetheless. Plus, Jake Locker is back. All of which leads to the fact that the jury is still out on this team.
#8 New York Jets
This might be the worst 4-3 team in history. Based on point differential, this team is only better than the Jaguars and Texans in the AFC.
#9 Miami Dolphins
All of the drama surrounding this team is overshadowing the fact that they are still alive in the Wild Card hunt.
#10 Cleveland Browns
The Browns look smarter week by week as Richardson continues to struggle and the Browns keep winning division games.
#11 Houston Texans
I love what I am seeing out of Case Keenum… reminds me a little of a young Brett Favre.
#12 Baltimore Ravens
Even the staunchest of Joe Flacco supporters cannot defend his ineptness anymore.
#13 Buffalo Bills
This team has found a way to hang in games against teams they shouldn’t be hanging in against.
#14 Oakland Raiders
Your team is not in a good place when the Eagles embarrass you at home.
#15 Pittsburgh Steelers
Never thought I would see the day when this team would give up 55 points.
#16 Jacksonville Jaguars
With Blackmon gone, the Jags might as well get Tebow and run it every single play.
