Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Posted: October 31, 2016 in NFL

It only took three weeks with Brady back for the Patriots to claim the #1 spot and that shouldn’t really surprise anyone as New England has been flat out dominate over the last three games. No can really question moves that the Patriots make but life-after-Collins is something to look out for. At #2 is a team that has won six straight games-the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have beaten some of the NFC elites and their comeback victory over the Eagles was impressive, showing they belong in the NFC Super Bowl contender conversation. The Eagles, moved up 2 spots to #3, despite losing to Dallas. Chiefs and Falcons round out the Top 5. The Chiefs, Saints, Texans and Panthers all moved up more than five spots in this week’s rankings. while the Vikings, Jets and Bills all dropped at least five spots.

Given recent ties.. The projected wins column includes a half win for ties, so the Seahawks projected for 9.1 wins is really 8.6-6.4-1 and so forth. It is easier to look at playoff picture with the half win factored in.
