2014 NFL POWER RANKINGS Week 5: 49ers Back Into the Top 12

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

I have one NFC team and one AFC team in the top two to reflect who may end up in the super bowl. I also include at least one team from each division in the top 12 teams.

This week several teams near the top were inactive so no change in the top 4 teams but there was some movement within the top 12 teams.

Change in Top 12:
The Falcons tumble out of the top 12 teams after losing at Minnesota. Their inability to win games played outdoors continues for the Falcons. Their defense was certainly exposed a bit Sunday.

It is the 49ers who take the Falcons place in the top 12 by handing the Eagles their first loss of the season. It was impressive to see how the 49er defense completely shut down the Eagles run game and beat them upfront.

  1. After tonight’s debacle by the Patriots plus after the Cowboys take care of the Texans this next weekend, you’ll be able to move the Cowboys up a couple more positions!

    • I see Cowboy fans are getting their swagger back!

      The Texans will no doubt play better defense than Ryan’s Saint defense but I like the Cowboys chances. So far the Cowboys have beaten weak teams that all only have one win. Saints are now 0-3 on the road.

      While the Pats stink right now, they still are likely to win their weak division and make the post season. That’s why I have them in the top 12. Who else would win it? The Bills with Orton as QB? The Dolphins? The Jets? See what I mean?
