NFL rankings: Week 7


This week’s NFL rankings show a little bit of a shake up at the top as one of the unbeatens finally fell…just not the one that most people thought.  The Panthers hold onto their undefeated streak while the Falcons take a fall, putting a very big twist on a surprisingly competitive NFC South.  But that isn’t the most interesting part of the NFL season heading into Week 7.  No, what is far more intriguing is the fact that there are only 10 teams in the NFL with winning records right now.  As we have seen almost every week, the number of quality teams in the NFL seems to be shrinking as the season goes on.

Our biggest risers this week are the Minnesota Vikings, who jump into the top ten simply by being one of the few winning teams in the NFL at this point.  The biggest fall belongs to the Seattle Seahawks who are sitting at a very surprising 2-4.  Many of the division races are appearing to be settled extremely early this year as there are multiple teams that simply look to be in a dominant position over their competition.

Kansas City appears to be completely out of contention now.  Along with the Chargers, the Chiefs have stumbled heavily coming out of the gate and haven’t been able to rebound even slightly.  At this point, it’s nearly time to start working on the mock drafts, but we’ll hold off for just a little longer on that…on to the rankings!
