NFL Power RankingsTotal Pro Sports – Where have you gone Michael Vick? Do you think Falcons fans even still remember this guy? I don’t think so…………It seems that this week all the talk is about the huge comeback win for the Atlanta Falcons. What can we say on the development of Matt Ryan? This kid is gonna be a star one day. So poised under pressure he led his team back with basically seconds left on the clock.

Red ArrowThe biggest loser in our NFL Power Rankings this week were the New England Patriots losing to the San Diego Chargers, which saw them drop 10 spots to #18. The Patriots got absolutely destroyed by the Chargers in San Diego, without Tom Brady their season is done. Another team this week which lost 10 spots in our NFL Power Rankings were the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens got there feathers wiped off them by the Indianapolis Colts.

Green ArrowThe biggest gainer of the week were the Arizona Cardinals who jumped 5 spots to #7, with a huge win over the Dallas Cowboys. The Arizona Cardinals seem to be back on track after back to back wins over 2 top 10 teams in the NFL. There were 2 other teams as well who gained 5 spots in the Power rankings, they were the Buffalo Bills, moving up without even having to play this past week, and the Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons moved up to the #13 spot after beating the Bears in the dieing second of the game. The big 3 and the Falcons are for real, keep an eye on them as they continue to improve.

We thought week 6 had some huge moves in the NFL POWER RANKINGS, week 7 was worse.

Lets take a look at the rest of the league: NFL Power Rankings for week 6

Rank Team Rec PRV Comment
1 Tennessee Titans 5-0 - A week off. Up Next: Kansas City Chiefs
2 New York Giants 4-1 - Their perfect season is now over with there Monday night loss to the Browns. We think there might have been a mix up, the Giants were wearing the Browns jerseys and the Browns were wearing the Giants jerseys. This can be the only excuse for the Giants. Up Next: San Francisco 49ers
3 Pittsburgh Steelers 4-2 Green Arrow1 A week off. Up Next: Cincinnati Bengals
4 Buffalo Bills 4-1 Green Arrow5 A week off. Up Next: Miami Dolphins
5 Washington Redskins 4-2 - What we all thought was gonna be a blow out for the Redskins was not true. A line that was set at -14 points for the skins is now truly laughable. I wish I knew this is what the outcome was gonna be, I would have laid the house on the Rams money line. Jason Campbell was less then stellar, and if it were not for those 3 fumbles by the skins they would now be 5-1. Up Next: St. Louis Rams
6 Dallas Cowboys 4-2 Red Arrow3 A huge loss to the Cardinals this past week and with the loss of Tony Romo with a broken pinkie that occurred in over time. We can only question whats next for the Cowboys????? Up Next: St. Louis Rams
7 Arizona Cardinals 4-2 Green Arrow5 What a huge win for the Cardinals, they were all over Tony Romo on defense and Kurt Warner was impressive yet again on offense. The biggest play came on special teams however, as the game was won on a punt block touchdown. Up Next: Bye
8 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-2 Green Arrow2 A big win against division rival Panthers. The Bucs ended up capitalizingon Panthers mistakes winning the game 27-3. The Bucs defense was stellar holding the effective Panthers run to only 40 total yards. Up Next:Seattle Seahawks
9 Indianapolis Colts 3-2 Green Arrow4 They absolutely dominated the Ravens in every aspect of the game and the offense got back on track. Up Next:Green Bay Packers
10 Denver Broncos 4-2 Red Arrow3 The high flying Broncos were held to only 17 points this week against the Jaguars. It seems as if the Broncos are slowly coming back down to reality, well just have to wait and see what they can do against the Patriots on Monday night next week. Up Next: New England Patriots
11 Carolina Panthers 4-2 Red Arrow5 The Panthers just got absolutley destroyed by the division rival Bucs. There run game was held to 40 total yards and Jake the snake threw for 3 interceptions. You can be sure they will be practicing all week for this mess. Up Next: New Orleans Saints
12 Jacksonville Jaguars 3-3 Green Arrow4 Huge road win for the Jags this week, can you believe they are third in their respective division this late in the season? Up Next: Bye
13 Atlanta Falcons 4-2 Green Arrow5 Matt Ryan is quickly making the people of Atlanta forget about Micheal Vick. The young quarter is growing each week and taking a lead role in the offense. His maturity is evident in his composure during crucial times in the game. Up Next: Bye
14 Philadelphia Eagles 3-3 Green Arrow1 The Eagles used a 23 point fourth quarter to reach .500 mark this season. McNabb was sensational again leading his team back from a nine point deficit entering the final period. The Eagles may have saved their season. Up Next: Bye
15 San Diego Chargers 3-3 Green Arrow2 Dominating the Patriots in a regular season game doesn’t completely make up for the playoff losses but it’s step in the right direction. Up Next: Buffalo Bills
16 New York Jets 3-2 Green Arrow3 The Jets keep the Bengals win lessand keep pace with division leading Buffalo. Thomas Jones played his best game thus far this season. Up Next: Oakland Raiders
17 Chicago Bears 3-3 Red Arrow6 They thought they had the game won, Kyle Orton’s touchdown pass with 11 seconds left should have sealed the win. This is the reason why I hate the squib kick as Atlanta got the ball on it’s own 44 yard line made one play to get into field goal range and Elam hit a 48 yard field goal. Up Next: Minnesota Vikings
18 New England Patriots 3-2 Red Arrow10 Tom Brady where have you gone!!!! Without Tom Brady running the offense you can trully see what kind of offense you have on the field. Do you see now why you need a true quarterback? Up Next: Denver Broncos
19 New Orleans Saints 3-3 Green Arrow3 The most impressive quarterback this season was at it again this week, Drew Brees completed his first 16 passes on route to a 26-30 for 320 yards and 3 touchdown day. Up Next: Carolina Panthers
20 Green Bay Packers 3-3 Green Arrow3 Aaron Rodgers was able to play through the pain of his injured shoulder and lead the the Packers to win over a depleted Seahawks team. Up Next: Indianapolis Colts
21 Minnesota Vikings 3-3 - Only Josh Childress can struggle against the Detroit Lions defense, he lacks the ability for offensive creativity. The Vikings were able to score a late field goal to avoid an embarrassing loss to the win less Lions. Up Next: Chicago Bears
22 Cleveland Browns 2-3 Green Arrow4 A huge win this week on Monday night against the Giants. Is this the turn around game for the Browns? Well just have to wait and see. Up Next: Washington Redskins
23 Miami Dolphins 2-3 Red Arrow4 The Dolphins give the the Texans their first win on the season. The defence wasn’t able to come up with a key stop on 4th and 10, this eventually led to the go ahead touchdown with 3 seconds left. Up Next: Baltimore Ravens
24 Baltimore Ravens 2-3 Red Arrow10 Joe Flacco’s inexperience was most evident this week as he was unable to make any plays on offense and turns the ball over three times. Up Next: Miami Dolphins
25 San Francisco 49ers 2-4 Red Arrow1 Held a lead till the end of the third quarter, until they allowed the Eagles to score 23 total points in the fourth quarter. The 49ers had 3 turnovers in the 4th quarter which went for 13 Eagles points. They better improve on this or they continue to get blown out. Up Next: New York Giants
26 Houston Texans 1-4 Green Arrow4 What a game against the Miami Dolphins this past week. The Texans just squeaked out their first win of the season. Way to go Texans, way to go!!!!! Hopefully they can go for #2 next week. Up Next: Detroit Lions
27 Seattle Seahawks 1-4 Red Arrow2 Another loss this week. The Seahawks and their fans can’t wait till the season is done. Up Next: Tampa Bay Bucs
28 Oakland Raiders 1-4 Red Arrow1 What else can go wrong for the Raiders? When will the lowly Raiders ever improve? They lost this week again to the New Orleans Saints. Up Next: New York Jets
29 St Louis Rams 1-4 Green Arrow3 The Rams walked into Waskington and decided it was time for their first win. Nice win for Jim Haslett, maybe next week they can take one away from the slumping Cowboys. Up Next: Dallas Cowboys
30 Kansas City Chiefs 1-4 Red Arrow2 A week off. Up Next: Tennessee Titans
31 Cincinnati Bengals 0-6 Red Arrow2 Another week another loss for the Bengals. When will they ever win their first game? Up Next: Pittsburgh Steelers
32 Detroit Lions 0-5 Red Arrow1 Who would have thought the Lions would have lost by 2 points? What should have been a win for the Lions turned out to be a huge laugh for sports fans. Dan Orlovski stepped 3 feet out for the end zone for a safety. Up Next: Houston Texans
