The Sport Report NFL Power Rankings: Week 7

*Plus-Minus System (+ = going up in the rankings, – = going down in the rankings) Just to clear that up*

1.  Green Bay Packers (6-0) (Even) After Minnesota comes their bye, then perhaps the tougher half of the schedule.

2.  New England Patriots (5-1) (+1) – The dominance of the last drive by Brady was flawless.

3.  Baltimore Ravens (4-1) (+2) – A solid all around game has B More looking likely as the early favorites of clinching the division.

4.  San Francisco 49ers (5-1) (+4) – Looks like the 49ers will be major players come playoff time.

5.  New Orleans Saints (4-2) (-3) – The Saints next two opponents are the Colts & Rams, can you say easy rebound games?

6.  Detroit Lions (5-1) (-2) – A tough loss and a crazy war waged handshake will give the Lions some extra fuel next week. 

7.  San Diego Chargers (4-1) (-1) – The second half off the schedule will define the Chargers.

8.  Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2) (+2) – A good record but an odd season to say the least. 

9.  Oakland Raiders (4-2) (+2) – The Raiders are going to give the Chargers a legitimate run for their money. They just acquired Carson Palmer, let’s see he’s worth on the field.

10.  Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-2) (+4) – After getting spanked last week they managed to take down the Saints. What a battle in the NFC South.

11.  New York Giants (4-2) (+4) – A solid bounce back win, and after the bye they face the Dolphins. After that it is tough.

12.  Buffalo Bills (4-2) (-5) – The Bills second half is very favorable to put up an impressive record and even make the playoffs.

13.  Washington Redskins (3-2) (-4) – The Skins are changing quarterbacks which shouldn’t surprise anyone. This considering that everyone knew that was the area of issue.

14.  Tennessee Titans (3-2) (-2) A much needed bye, Chris Johnson needs to start doing something now that the Texans are fading.

15.  New York Jets (3-3) (+1)  – The first half was bad, the second half was good. I’m not sure if the Jets could have beaten too many teams with that performance but a win no less.

16.  Houston Texans (3-3) (-3) – The prayers for Andre Johnson to be healthy are under way.

17.  Cincinnati Bengals (4-2) (+1) – Winners of three straight will ride into the bye feeling very good about themselves.

18.  Atlanta Falcons (3-3) (+1) A decent win but this Falcons team will really need to prove they can challenge the division by taking out the 5-1 Lions.

19.  Chicago Bears (3-3) (+1) – The Bears will have to beat the Bucs if they want any chance of remaining relevant in the NFC North.

20.  Dallas Cowboys (2-3) (-3) – A loss but a lot of potential rose from that game. Dallas showed their true stars and should be a threat in the NFC East.

21.  Philadelphia Eagles (2-4) (+2) – Finally a win but they will need to be consistent to have a shot at the NFC East.

22.  Seattle Seahawks (2-3) (-1) – Can the Hawks win 3 in a row?

23.  Kansas City Chiefs (2-3) (Even) – The Oakland will define the Chiefs season even if injuries hadn’t already done that.

24.  Cleveland Browns (2-3) (Even) – I thought Oakland would blow them out, they actually made the game close. 

25.  Arizona Cardinals (1-4) (Even) – The Steelers are next…ouch.

26. Carolina Panthers (1-5) (Even) – I think the Panthers have a bright future for next year. 

27.  Denver Broncos (1-4) (+2) – Like I said before, It’s Tebow Time!!!

28.  Minnesota Vikings (1-5) (-1) – McNabb looks shot, I think it is the right time for Ponder.

29.  Jacksonville Jaguars (1-5) (-1) – Mike Sims Walker is back, I guess thats good news for Gabbert.

30.  St. Louis Rams (0-5) (Even) – I’m confused on acquiring Brandon Lloyd at this point, the 49ers are 5-1…..

31.  Miami Dolphins (0-5) (Even) – The Redzone issues continue, the coach isn’t gutsy, etc… If your 0-4 inside the 5 yard line, why kick field goal fist pumps? (It’s a Sparano thing)

32.  Indianapolis Colts (0-6) (Even) – Even for an 0-6 team they show early signs of playing ball but after that no signs.
