Week 9 NFL Power Rankings

Check out the NFL Power Rankings Week 9 for 2009 as well.

NFL Power Rankings for Week 9 are now up, with a Halloween Theme. Enjoy!

The Apples – Who wants health food on Halloween? Unless it is covered in caramel, passing out fruit is bush-league. These NFL Apples have went bad.

32. Detroit Lions
31. Cincinatti Bengals
30. Kansas City Chiefs
29. Oakland Raiders
28. San Francisco 49ers
27. Seattle Seahawks
26. St. Louis Rams
25. Houston Texans

The Tootsie Rolls – They don’t taste bad, but it’s pretty dang chincy if you ask me. These teams are almost there, but not doing quite enough.

24. Minnesota Vikings
23. Miami Dolphins
22. Jacksonville Jaguars
21. Cleveland Browns
20. New York Jets
19. Baltimore Ravens
18. Denver Broncos

The Candy Bar – A solid choice, I was always a fan of the Caramellos. Unfortunately, you rarely got the full-size bar, and these teams sometimes don’t play for the full 60 minutes.

16. Indianapolis Colts
15. New Orleans Saints
14. Atlanta Falcons
13. Arizona Cardinals
12. Chicago Bears
11. Green Bay Packers
10. Tampa Bay Bucs

The Cash – Didn’t you love that Doctor’s house that always gave out money instead of candy? Always the best house to hit twice. These teams have the diploma on the wall.

6. Buffalo Bills
5. New England Patriots
4. Carolina Panthers
3. Pittsburgh Steelers

    Nice try patsfans.com. The Redskins won by more than the Patriots did and they didn’t have to come from behind in the 4th quarter to do it. Not to mention their entire season has been much more impressive than the one the Patriots have been having. I am not going to say that the Patriots aren’t a good team, but at this point in the season you would have to be insane to say that the Patriots deserve to be ranked higher than the Redskins. There are plenty of facts in the comments section of these rankings that will back-up my comments.

    whatever, they barely beat the lions

    patsfans.com, the Redskins won. The Pats shouldn’t have passed them. I would argue they don’t belong in the top 10 at all, but that is a different story.

    I guess I’m the only one, but as a Chargers fan, I’d say this is pretty fair.

    Titans shouldn’t be #1 — they haven’t beat anyone yet. Giants, Redskins, Eagles, and Cowboys are all better than them.

  6. patsfans.com says:

    Missing their top 2 RB’s (that aren’t on IR), RT, and their top 2 CB’s for part of the game, the Patriots managed to beat the team that beat the Redskins and the Cowboys the last 2 weeks. Meanwhile, the Bucs, Cards, Bills, and Cardinals all lost. Seems about right.

  7. Kyle says:

    How could the Patriots mov up to #5 with a squeak by win againts the Rams?

    Wow Redskins fans… back off the hating. It’s not like he put the redskins at #15 or something. Seems pretty fair to a Bucs fan.

    Buffalo, back that up with ANY facts.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Yeah, sure buffalowing. Your stellar team that has only played one team with a record above .500. Oh, and they lost that one.

    It doesn’t matter if they are into stats. They aren’t going to win many games by getting outgained. They can’t count on a 4th quarter interception every week. They don’t have the same team they have had in the past. To say that they “just win games” is nonsense, they have lost just as many games against teams with a worse cumulative record.

  12. buffalowing says:

    quit your yappin, the Bills would wipe the floor with the Skins.

    p.s.- Following the common game logic the Redskins are better than the Bills.

  14. Admin says:

    “With the exception of the final score”… That’s what the Pats do best though – they just win games. Last year was an abberation, if you look at the past, they don’t care about stats — they care about W’s. Hopefully the Pats and Skins will play in the SB and they can settle it on the field.

    It is hard to say the Pats looked better against the Rams. The Redskins were in control of the Rams game with the exception of a few fluke plays.(fumble return for a TD) The Rams outgained the Pats by 10 yards(358-348) while the Redskins outgained the Rams 368-200. The Redskins were also able to hold the Rams without a touchdown, which the Pats failed to do. The Pats had to come back and without an interception by O’neal they might be in the same boat as the Skins. The Pats won with a little good luck and the Skins lost with a little bad luck. With the exception of the final score the Redskins showed a much more impressive performance.

  16. Admin says:

    There is definitely some blind loyalty in there… no doubt.But based on the only common opponent (Rams), we looked better, although that is subjective. The rest of the games for comparison purposes are even more subjective. Like I said before, any team in the top 10 probably could make a case for being in the top 3.

  17. Anonymous says:

    Why do you feel that way? Aside from blind loyalty. I would assume that all of the facts would lead a person to believe the opposite.

  18. Admin says:

    You make good points, but I feel that the Pats and Bills would both beat the Redskins head-to-head.

    The Redskins have beaten and lost to better teams than both the Bills and the Patriots. The teams the Redskins lost to have a combined win total of 8 while the total is 7 and 6 for the Bills and Patriots respectively. There is a slight difference between a last second loss and losing by 20 or 25 as the Pats did or by 24 like the Bills did. The Redskins didn’t look the greatest against the Lions but they did win by 8 while outgaining the Lions 439-274 and holding the ball nearly 11 minutes longer. I wouldn’t consider that a poor performance.The facts are that the Redskins have a better record than both of these teams. They have beaten better teams and their loses have not been as bad as the Bills and Pats. They have a better offense and defense than these teams. So, when deciding where to put the Redskins I think a good place to start would be ABOVE the Pats and Bills.

    “Pats at 5? I guess it makes sense to jump 6 spots after a quality win over the Rams.”Where should I put the Redskins after a quality loss at the Rams and a POOR showing against the hapless lions? I think they are a good team, and anywhere in the top quarter of the league is about the same anyway.

    Pats at 5? I guess it makes sense to jump 6 spots after a quality win over the Rams. They are definitely the 5th best team with the 19th ranked offense and 14th ranked defense. That deserves a top 5 ranking, especially since they earned those lofty rankings against such powerhouses as the chiefs, jets, dolphins, 49ers, chargers, broncos, and rams. Wow, two of those teams have records above .500. I guess that earns them a spot above the Bills who have played one team with a record above .500. They should both definitely be ranked above a team like the Redskins who have played 5 teams above .500 and still manage to have the 7th ranked offense and 6th ranked defense. I don’t know about anyone else but it makes a lot of sense to me.

    Pats and Eagles are trending up

    Titans looked good in the 4th against Indy. pats n eagles are too high

    I like the Colts, but they deserve to be thrown in a toilet with the Chargers and swirled.

    NFL Power Rankings without the Colts in the Top 10 make me happy
