NFL Power Rankings 2013 – Week 5 Updated
NFL power rankings 2013 continued week 5 with the Denver Broncos remaining in the top spot. The NFL power rankings 2013 edition had many serious movers in both directions. The Seattle Seahawks dropped after the losing to Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. Don’t worry Seattle fans, they didn’t fall off the map.
I have to talk about the NFL power rankings week 5 placements. I know some of you always disagree, regardless of what they are. In spite of that, here’s why teams are ranked in this order. Placement of the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, and New Orleans Saints is very straight forward. They are all 5-0 and will stay on top of NFL power rankings 2013 list until otherwise.
The Seattle Seahawks dropped to the five-spot this week after losing to Andrew Luck and the Colts. Baltimore made a big jump this week after winning a close on the road against the Miami Dolphins. Although the Patriots looked very bad in their loss to the Bengals, they still have only one loss on the season.
The Cleveland Browns and Cincinnati Bengals lead a pack of NFL teams hovering around the 3-2 or 2-3 mark. With the “Injury Bowl” played on Thursday Night Football, we don’t know the affects those injuries will have in coming weeks.
The Detroit Lions, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, and Dallas Cowboys will be a sore spot to some. No matter what you think of the Cowboys they lost to the best team in the NFL by a field goal. Even at 2-3, Dallas has a lot of weapons and stood toe to toe with Manning and the Broncos.
The NFC North, Minnesota aside, is a difficult division. Detroit has the tiebreaker over both Minnesota and Chicago. The Packers did beat them this week, but it was without Calvin Johnson. The Chicago Bears got a generous spot in the NFL power rankings for week 5. Jay Cutler and the Bears did lose to a great team but, I’m just not sold on this team. (that defense is solid though)
One area of the NFL power rankings for week 5 that cannot be debated is the bottom. The New York Giants, Jacksonville Jaguars, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Pittsburgh Steelers are simply terrible. The only thing these teams are currently competing for is first pick in the NFL Draft next year.
