Power Ranking By The Numbers Week 9

Use your ← → (arrows) to browse

There was some shake up in top 10 thanks in large part to some blowouts over lesser opponents. The biggest mover of those was the Cincinnati Bengals who is up six spots to number 5 after their 49-9 thrashing of the Jets.

As for the 49ers they stayed put at 7th even after their most dominating performance of the year against the lowly Jaguars. Even though they stayed in the same spot rank wise they were 10 points better in overall stats. The bye comes at the perfect time for this team as it is the midpoint of the season and Aldon Smith is out of rehab. It will be interesting to see if the league suspends him in the next few weeks or if they’ll let it go being he went and sought help.

New Orleans jump to the top spot over the Seahawks was well deserved. They could very well be undefeated had they not found a way to lose that game up in New England. The Saints have played sound football all season and Sean Payton is showing the value of a head coach. Coach of the Year will ultimately be Andy Reid, but Payton deserves to be in the conversation.

Speaking of Andy Reid and the Chiefs, they stay put in the number 3 slot which is right where they should be. Yes they are 8-0, but the best team they’ve played is #12 Dallas and they beat them by 1 point at home. I picked them to make the playoffs before the season started stating that their schedule will allow them to easily win 10 to 11 games, well they’ve taken care of business against lesser teams but,  now it’s time to see how good they really are as six of their final 8 games will be against teams in the top 15.

If you were to take playoff teams from this here are what the seeding would look like.
