NFL power rankings



POWER RANKINGS WEEK 10

Every week of the season, The Augusta Chronicle's Raymond Beasock will rank the pro teams.

Prv.

1. Indianapolis Colts 1

Now there's no question who's No. 1.

2. New York Giants 4

They better hope to heal up on defense really quick.

3. Chicago Bears 2

They got caught looking ahead to the big showdown at Giants Stadium tonight.

4. Denver Broncos 6

Javon Walker's making the Packers look foolish for cutting him loose.

5. Baltimore Ravens 8

They poured it on early and held on late against Cincinnati.

6. New England Patriots 3

That was an uncharacteristic performance by Tom Brady.

7. San Diego Chargers 7

Who needs a passing game when Tomlinson's running the way he is.

8. New Orleans Saints 11

A lot of people aren't listening to the Drew Brees for MVP talk. They should be.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars 9

Is David Garrard forcing a Byron Leftwich trade at the end of the year?

10. Atlanta Falcons 5

Their weaknesses were evident against the Lions.

11. Kansas City Chiefs 14

Larry Johnson's rolling right along and it's no surprise the Chiefs are winning.

12. Seattle Seahawks 17

At least their defense still looks good.

13. Cincinnati Bengals 13

Who else thinks T.J. Houshmandzadeh should keep his helmet on at all times?

14. Dallas Cowboys 10

How in the world did they lose that game Sunday?

15. Minnesota Vikings 12

You can't consider yourself a playoff team when you only score three points against the 49ers. 16. Philadelphia Eagles 15

Bye week should've helped them heal up.

17. Carolina Panthers 12

One of many 4-4 teams fighting it out for an NFC playoff spot.

18. St. Louis Rams 17

I think their offense tackles better than their defense.

19. New York Jets 19

Their playoff push must start now.

20. San Francisco 49ers 23

Hard to believe they've won eight in a row at home.

21. Washington Redskins 26

Even they have to feel incredibly fortunate.

22. Pittsburgh Steelers 20

No wonder Bill Cowher was considering retirement after this year.

23. Buffalo Bills 28

Just their luck, they get a win but lose Willis McGahee.

24. Miami Dolphins 31

They do remember how to win.

25. Detroit Lions 30

Can Kevin Jones stay healthy enough to produce what they need?

26. Cleveland Browns 21

Too little too late against San Diego.

27. Green Bay Packers 22

It seems like they've adopted Brett Favre's never-say-die attitude.

28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 24

It's official. They stink.

29. Houston Texans 29

They found some positives in close loss to Giants.

30. Tennessee Titans 25

This team is going to have a few more games like last week until they get better pieces in place.

31. Arizona Cardinals 32

Only the Raiders are keeping them out of the cellar

32 Oakland Raiders 27

Did I really move them up to 27 last week?
