Here we go again! It's time for the Week 6 NFL power rankings. With the Buffalo Bills getting knocked off and the Kansas City Chiefs holding on, where do the top teams fall?
Let's take a look at this week's NFL Power Rankings.
1. Philadelphia Eagles (5-0)
Last Week: 1 (-)
The Rams gave it their best but the Eagles prevailed again. Standing at 5-0 right now, it is hard to imagine that the Eagles are not one of the final two teams in the NFC at the end of the year. They get it done in a lot of different ways. Could we see them return to the Super Bowl again?
2. San Francisco 49ers (5-0)
Last week: 2 (-)
The 49ers absolutely demolished the Cowboys which might send them into a tailspin. If the Niners proved anything this week, it's that they are one of the three best teams in the NFL. Currently, there is a tier that the 49ers and Eagles belong in that is head and shoulders above everyone else. NFC Championship? We sure hope so.
3. Kansas City Chiefs (4-1)
Last week: 4 (+1)
A win is a win. The Vikings are not among the NFL's best teams, but they have some very nice pieces on both sides of the ball. The Chiefs now have a real chance to rattle off some divisional victories as they play the Broncos this week, the Chargers next week, and then the Broncos again. Mahomes and company will have a real opportunity to "get right."
4. Miami Dolphins (4-1)
Last Week: 5 (+1)
Welp. The Dolphins beat up on the Giants. That's all you really need to know. Every team that plays the Giants beats up on them. We learned nothing new this week.
5. Detroit Lions (4-1)
Last Week: 6 (+1)
The Lions are a fun story for right now. The offense is humming and the defense is doing enough to get it done. While I have doubts as to whether Detroit is ready for a Super Bowl run, they are easy to cheer for. They play with an underdog mentality and are reminiscent of a high school football team from a sitcom.
6. Jacksonville Jaguars (3-2)
Last Week: 10 (+4)
Jacksonville is truly a sleeping giant. If the offensive line can give Trevor Lawrence time to throw on a consistent basis, they are going to be tough. Calvin Ridley, Christian Kirk, and Travis Etienne are as good a trio as anyone outside of San Francisco. If that offense finds its footing, look out!
7. Buffalo Bills (3-2)
Last Week: 3 (-4)
Buffalo is the ultimate rollercoaster. They are not consistently great but they show tremendous upside. With that in mind, they did not get it done against the Jaguars in London. To add insult to injury, they have lost a few key defensive stars to injury. Can they stay on course, or will we begin to see a slide? We will find out a lot about the Bills very soon.
8. Seattle Seahawks (3-1)
Last Week: 9 (+1)
