“The Reality Check” Week 5 NFL Power Rankings

October 05, 2011 | Glenn Clark

16. New York Jets (LW: 9)

So…I never thought they were a Top 5 team, but this is awful.

15. Atlanta Falcons (LW: 16)

I get the feeling they’ll start winning a few games…right after they play the Packers.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 10)

This game against the Titans could be a bit of a turning point for them.

13. Chicago Bears (LW: 17)

If Matt Forte has monster games and Devin Hester has punt return TD’s every week they’ll win a ton of games.

12. Tennessee Titans (LW: 19)

I still think it will bite them at some point to not have Kenny Britt, but they’ll stick around in the AFC South for awhile.

11. Washington Redskins (LW: 18)

“They can’t keep winning with Rex Grossman as quarterback. They can’t keep winning with Rex Grossman as quarterback.”

10. New York Giants (LW: 15)

Wins with questionable calls are wins nonetheless.

9. Buffalo Bills (LW: 7)

I don’t see them in the Top 10 much longer.

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 11)

This team just plain figures out ways to win football games. Good for them.

7. Houston Texans (LW: 8)

It’s going to hurt them to have to play without Andre Johnson. It’s not going to hurt the Ravens in Week 6 however.

6. San Diego Chargers (LW: 6)

More Mike Tolbert please. Thanks. That is all.

5. Detroit Lions (LW: 4)

Someone tell Jim Schwartz they schedule a first half in every game he’ll play this season.

4. Baltimore Ravens (LW: 5)

Would be nice to see a few more completed passes and all, but 3-1 is fine. I didn’t realize just how mediocre they were on the road under Harbaugh.

3. New England Patriots (LW: 3)

They were going to be okay. They have Tom Brady.

2. New Orleans Saints (LW: 2)

They’ll score as many points as they need in almost every game. I’d count on that.

1. Green Bay Packers (LW: 1)

The world IS round!
