Power rankings are good to have, but they only tell you where teams sit in relation to one another in the overall scheme of things. A team lower in rank could easily defeat a team above it if they matchup well with them--something to keep in mind when evaluating weekend games.
Not much change among the contenders. HOU dropped and DET rose, but otherwise status quo.
Three new entries to the pretender list. BUF, SF, and OAK all put impressive wins on the map and knock TEN and TB down the list. Interesting that all 6 teams from the pretender list that played last week lost. The only question now is how much further will they fall this year?
TEN and TB drop into the bubble category. I took the 'under' in both of their season win totals so their inconsistency doesn't surprise me. CAR earned their way out of the bottom and will only stay here as long as Newton plays well. CIN might have beaten a bad JAX team, but any win on the road is a step in the right direction for them.
Does anyone outside of these teams particular fan base care how they get shuffled around? The only fun part about this group is the question of last place.
