Week Seven Power Rankings (NFL)

1. Los Angeles Rams– Another week at the top of the rankings. Jared Goff appears to be human after all but that didn’t mean much when you have a star running back in Todd Gurley to lean on. He finished with 208 yards and two touchdowns which helped propel the Rams to a victory and a 6-0 start. In the words of the late Dennis Green, they are who we thought they were.

2. New England Patriots– And again, I ask you: What problems and two, they’re still done and they’ve seen better days, right? To beat them, the best time to do it is in September and just realize that as each month during the season passes along, they get better. I will never count this football team out as long as that head coach and that quarterback is still together as a tandem. It’s onto the Chicago Bears now.

3. Kansas City Chiefs– They were penciled in at my second spot in my rankings, but now they’ve just moved a spot down. That was a tough loss they suffered last Sunday night to the Patriots in Foxborough but there was one thing I took away from that game and that was no matter what the magnitude of the game is or how bright the lights are, there’s nothing too big for Pat Mahomes. That kid simply amazes me each time I see him step out on the football field. This will be another primetime game for them against the Bengals at home tonight.

4. New Orleans Saints– I think they went into their bye week at the worst possible time because when you’re clicking, you never want to stop playing and ever since week one, they’ve done just that and that’s click. Drew is playing at an MVP level, they have Mark Ingram back after his suspension and their defense is playing a lot better than they did early on in the season. With a win today against the Ravens, Drew Brees will join Peyton Manning and Brett Favre as the only three quarterbacks to defeat every single team in the NFL.

5. Baltimore Ravens– This is a team to really watch. I knew they’d be different with the weapons they’ve surrounded Joe Flacco with and the defense is still one of the best and they proved that last week in Tennessee with a performance to remember, 11 sacks of Marcus Mariota. There are only two teams that I see really challenging New England in the AFC and this is one of them. They have shown in the past they aren’t afraid to go up to Foxborough and face the Patriots.
