Rk Team W-L Last Wk 2005 Only Offense Rk Defense Rk Sp. Tms Rk

1. COLTS 6-0 1 2 4 4 26
Last night, St. Louis showed that to beat the Colts, all you have to do is a) run the ball and b) waive Jamie Martin prior to the start of the season. Unfortunately for the Rams, they only did one of those things. NEXT: at HOU

2. BENGALS 5-1 3 1 3 8 10
Like the Colts, the Bengals still have a clear weakness against the run. They rank 28th in run defense DVOA and have been slashed by Fred Taylor and Chris Brown over the past two weeks. This week, they play their biggest game since 1990 against a team that loves to run the ball. Whatever could the game plan be? NEXT: vs. PIT

3. CHARGERS 3-3 4 3 2 18 7
Yes, they are this good. The Chargers have won three games big and lost three games by very small margins to three teams in the top 12. With the decline of the AFC East and the Kansas City offense, the hard schedule doesn't look quite as tough in the second half. Week 17 against Denver may determine division title. NEXT: at PHI

4. STEELERS 3-2 2 7 13 6 21
When we talk about Pittsburgh's stats for the rest of the season, we're going to have to give two numbers: full-season, and "not counting the Jacksonville game." NEXT: at CIN

5. GIANTS 3-2 5 4 6 17 1
The Giants currently rank fourth in run offense DVOA and seventh in run defense DVOA. Next week is the test, taking on a strong AFC opponent that can run the ball and stop the run. NEXT: vs. DEN

6. JAGUARS 4-2 11 5 18 2 6
Jaguars are the league's worst team running towards the right, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry on runs listed as right tackle or right end. NEXT: BYE, then at STL

7. SEAHAWKS 4-2 7 6 1 25 19
After next week, somebody will be for real, and somebody will not. Well, for the following seven days of television commentary, anyway. NEXT: vs. DAL

8. BUCS 5-1 8 9 19 3 12
Their week off could not come at a better time, giving Chris Simms two weeks to get ready to take over the offense while the rest of the team recovers from various nicks and scrapes. NEXT: BYE, then at SF with a healthy Cadillac coming out of the garage.

9. COWBOYS 4-2 12 8 11 10 9
We have a stat called "Adjusted Sack Rate" which measures sacks per pass play, adjusted based on down, distance, and opponent. Last year, Dallas was 26th in the league at 6.0%. This year, Dallas leads the league at 10.3%. NEXT at SEA

10. EAGLES 3-2 6 11 7 13 32
How does a team drop five spots during its bye week? Read the explanation below. NEXT: vs. SD

What?

1. Colts - hey last to lose you get this slot every year....
2. Broncos - didn't make the other list? Opening day mess up costs them being tied with Colts. Plus they have beaten the Champs.
3. Cincy - Balance and no weak spots except opponent win % means we need to see more. Big weekend.
4. Dallas - Had it not been for 'Skins last second bombs, they would be the story this year.
5. Bucs - Off to a fast start, but you thought losing Ben hurt us for a week, watch how losing a slightly average Griese hurts the Bucs.

Yes we are out of the top 5. Not that we can't be there, cause like I said, we have lost two on the last play of the game. But other teams are finding those ways to win.

We'd only have 1 loss if it wasn't for Turnover Tommy.

Fucking 3 picks (one being returned for the game-winning TD) and a fumble!"Turnover" is the right name for him.

A much better effort than any of the so called expert Power-rankings.

On a side note, I think Chris Simms will fill in just fine for Griese in Tampa - he looked cool in the pocket when he had to play and seems to have decent arm strength.

Dont quote me, but I believe he was the starter in Tampa before he got injured.
