WEEK 7 NFL Power Rankings: Saints Stumble for First Loss

NFLTeams
A power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week 6 play.

The Twist: Each week my top 12 ranked teams will consist of 6 NFC teams and 6 AFC teams since 6 from each conference will qualify for the post season. I reflect the top 12 teams most likely to make the playoffs each week.

TOP 12:
After losing in the last seconds at N.E. the Saints drop from 2 to number 5.
With a Bengals win and a Ravens loss to the Packers, the Bengals (10) move just ahead of the Ravens (11).

Next WEEK Games to Keep an Eye on:
Dallas @ Philadelphia- For now Dallas is holding the 12th spot but when these two teams play Sunday, first place in the NFC East is up for grabs. Which team wins, will be in the 12th spot with an inside track to win the East and make the playoffs.
The loser will move into what I refer to as the “wildcard pool” where I don’t like their chances at all. To make the playoffs, Dallas must win their division and it’s actually quite obtainable.

Denver @ Indianopolis– One of most intriguing games is this one on Sunday night when Manning faces his old team, led by Luck. Both teams are currently ranked in the top 10 teams. Could Colts give the Broncos their first loss?
