Week 10 Power Rankings

Houston, we may have a rematch.

Jason Lisk put the Texans on top of his power rankings. Both Aaron Schatz and Brian Burke loves the Broncos. The Patriots offense looks historically great. I know what you’re thinking: wasn’t it only five weeks ago that I read somewhere that the NFC was by far the superior conference in the NFL?

That still may be true. Football Outsiders has the Jaguars, Chiefs, Raiders, Titans, Browns and… Colts as their bottom six teams in the league. Advanced NFL Stats largely agrees, putting the Jaguars, Chiefs, Titans, Bills, Cardinals, Colts, Browns and Raiders — that’s 7 AFC teams — in the bottom quarter of the NFL. There is a large gap between the ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’ in the AFC, and the three teams straddling the border — Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Indianapolis — are tremendously flawed. That says nothing of the middle tier of the AFC, populated by the schizophrenic Dolphins, Bengals, and Chargers. The AFC may not be any good this year, but that doesn’t mean it the Super Bowl winner won’t come from there.

[As always, the number of wins I’m projecting each team to finish the season with is in column 3. The fourth column – PWIN – shows how many wins I projected last week, and the difference column represents how many wins I added or subtracted this week. The “RSOS” column stands for the remaining SOS for the team, based on the number of projected wins I’m giving to each of their opponents. The “RHG” column stands for remaining home games.]

Comments
Atlanta Falcons8-1131300.4734Their first loss doesn't change their outlook -- this is a 13-win team that should get the #1 seed in the NFC.
Houston Texans8-1131300.4643Until someone mentioned it Monday Night, I forgot the Texans play in a dome. There's no team built for the outdoors like Houston.
Denver Broncos6-3131210.3754They still have, by far, the easiest remaining schedule. Their win total keeps rising.
Chicago Bears7-21112-10.5043The loss to Houston isn't as significant as Jay Cutler's concussion.
New England Patriots6-3111100.5134Suddenly, the remaining schedule looks a little challenging, with Ind, @NYJ, @MIA, Hou, and SF the next five weeks.
Green Bay Packers6-3111100.4733If Green Bay can manage to win road games against the Lions and Giants the next two weeks, the hype machine will be rolling.
Baltimore Ravens7-2111010.5543Not a fan of this team at all, but they're getting a break facing Pittsburgh this week.
San Francisco 49ers6-2-110.512-1.50.5313There are no gimmes left on their schedule and the 49ers are starting to show some cracks.
Pittsburgh Steelers6-31011-10.4734Losing Ben Roethlisberger hurts, but an easy schedule means the Steelers are playing with a safety net.
New York Giants6-4910-10.5633Four weeks ago, I wrote: "I've projected the Giants at 9 wins every week so far, and I'm not going to change now. The Giants are plagued by inconsistency." Two weeks ago, I had them at 11 wins. I should know better.
Seattle Seahawks6-49900.5003Three home games remaining = three more wins.
Indianapolis Colts6-39900.5273No, a win over Jacksonville does not give you a bump in the projections.
Dallas Cowboys4-59810.4205Streaking and still have 5 games left in Jerry's World to go with a creampuff easy schedule.
Miami Dolphins4-589-10.5044Seriously, what was that? The loss to Tennessee wasn't just the most unexpected game of the year; it was also the worst one.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers5-49720.5763Josh Freeman is having a magnificent year. The schedule is difficult but a 9-win season is within their grasp.
New Orleans Saints4-58710.5583There's no margin for error for the Saints, who aren't good enough to operate with no margin of error.
Cincinnati Bengals4-58620.4463Can the Bengals win three straight games against the little sisters of the AFC West?
Minnesota Vikings6-47700.6612Not only does Minnesota have the most difficult remaining schedule but the Vikings are the only team with two home games left.
Tennessee Titans4-67610.4693I'm not about to buy into this team, but maybe they can use that win as a springboard.
St. Louis Rams3-5-16.560.50.4783A win over the Jets in the Schottenheimer Bowl may be the highpoint of the season. Anything would be better than kissing the 49ers.
San Diego Chargers4-567-10.5364Now that I think I've got them figured out, surely they're about to go on a winning streak.
Detroit Lions4-567-10.6615The loss to the Vikings effectively ended their season, as they are tied with the Vikings in having the hardest remaining schedule in the league.
Washington Redskins3-66600.4644Robert Griffin III off a bye week against the Eagles? Cover your eyes, Philly fans.
Arizona Cardinals4-56600.5543The St. Louis Cardinals won a game more recently than the football version. A regular season game.
Oakland Raiders3-66600.4294An easy remaining schedule means they probably won't be in contention for the top pick.
New York Jets3-66600.4063I hate this team.
Buffalo Bills3-66600.4425For the Bills, playing the Patriots close tends to be the highlight of their season.
Carolina Panthers2-76600.4463This team is much more talented than a 2-7 team, but I'm not sure what that gets them.
Philadelphia Eagles3-656-10.4733Yeah, the schedule is easy, but Philadelphia is on a 5-game losing streak that shows no sign of ending.
Cleveland Browns2-74400.5093The last 7 games will be very important for some members of the Cleveland franchise.
Jacksonville Jaguars1-834-10.5183Blaine Gabbert is ranked 33rd in NY/A out of 34 qualifying quarterbacks, sandwiched between the awfulness in Arizona.
Kansas City Chiefs1-83300.5274Hey, at least they didn't tie!

    I drop a leave a response when I appreciate a post on a website
    or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It is
    triggered by the fire communicated in the post I looked at.

    And on this post Week 10 Power Rankings — FootballPerspective.com.
    I was actually excited enough to drop a comment
    ;-) I actually do have a couple of questions for you
    if you usually do not mind. Could it be only me or do a few of these responses look as
    if they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on other social sites, I’d
    like to follow you. Could you make a list the complete urls of your shared
    pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
