Ronnie Brown CelebratesWeek: | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 |

Total Pro Sports – Can the Titans go perfect on the season?  They are 8-0 so far and are half way there.

How bout them Dolphins?????????? That’s right the Dolphins continue to improve each week.  The combination of Chad Pennington, Ronnie Brown and Ted Ginn Jr, make a lethal combination on the field to match up with.

NFL Power Rankings Movers And Shakers

Red ArrowThe biggest shaker this week was the New England Patriots losing to the Colts, which saw them drop 8 spots to #14. Did you ever think the Patriots would be ranked #14 this season?  This is what happens when you lose your Pro Bowl quarterback for the whole season.

The Dallas Cowboys were the second biggest loser of the week losing 7 spots to #15, after loosing to the surging New York Giants. Do you see the trend here with the Patriots? No QB, an increase of loses in the loss column.

Green ArrowThe biggest mover of the week were the Miami Dolphins and the New York jets who both jumped 7 spots to #17 and #10 respectively. The Dolphins won a tough game in Denver against the Broncos and move to .500 on the season.

The New York Jets won a huge division game against the Buffalo Bills.  What happened to the Bills? The bills were 4-0 at one point in the season, and now have lost 3-4.

Lets take a look at the rest of the league: NFL Power Rankings for week 9.
