Power Rankings Archives - Most NFL power rankings bounce teams all over because they disregard strength of schedule, or over-emphasize the most recent game played; giving too much credit for a single blowout of a low ranked team, and not enough credit for a close loss to a high ranked team.

At FootballLOCKS.com we dubbed that {{unstable power ranking syndrome}}.

Historical NFL power ratings at FootballLOCKS.com payed close attention to strength of opponents played without over-crediting the last game played (that was too fresh on the mind of many writers); all in a quest to deliver you with a weekly NFL power ranking that reflected the power of each team, and not just their record. For a team to crack the top 10 in FootballLOCKS.com's NFL football rankings, they had to earn it with more than a single crushing of a bottom ranked squad-- as you'll discover when reading through the archives.

NFL Team

Record

Comments November 21, 2006

1 (1)


Colts

9-1

The Colts lost their first game of the 2006 season as the offense turned the ball over 5 times (once on downs) in Dallas. One of the turnovers, a 39 yard interception that was returned for a touchdown appeared to be a play worthy of challenging. But no replay flag was thrown and it proved to be the difference in the game.

2 (3)


Bears

9-1

The Bears won for the 2nd week in a row at the Meadowlands, following up their week 10 road win versus the Giants with a shutout of the Jets. Chicago improved to 5-0 on the road overall.

3 (4)

Ravens

8-2

The Ravens dispensed of the Falcons at home, notching their 4th win in a row, and keeping a solid grasp on the AFC North.

4 (5)

Chargers

8-2

You get the feeling this San Diego team can surmount any deficit against any team at any venue... The Chargers improved to 8-2, and grabbed sole possession of first place in the AFC West with an impressive comeback win in Denver.

5 (2)

Broncos

7-3

Denver couldn't hold a lead at home against the Chargers, and as a result dropped to 2nd place in the AFC West.

6 (7)

Patriots

7-3

New England improved to 5-0 on the road with a 35-0 shutout over the Packers. The Patriots join Chicago as the only two remaining undefeated teams on the road.

7 (11)

Jaguars

6-4

Jacksonville beat the Giants at home Monday night. If the Jaguars hadn't lost to the Texans twice they could be sitting pretty at 8-2, with a chance to catch the Colts in the AFC South.

8 (6)


Giants

6-4

New York became the 3rd NFC East team to fall to the Jaguars, joining Dallas and Philadelphia. In fact, the only NFC East team to beat Jacksonville this season was Washington... Go figure... Then again, the Jaguars lost to Houston twice, so maybe it makes sense after all.

9 (13)


Cowboys

6-4

What did it take to beat the Colts? Intercepting Peyton Manning twice, forcing a Manning fumble, forcing a Marvin Harrison fumble, forcing Indy to turn the ball over on downs in the red zone, returning one of Manning's interceptions for a touchdown, having coach Dungy not challenge the aforementioned TD return even though the interceptor (Kevin Burnett) was clearly down by contact 39 yards from the end zone, having a Tony Romo interception in the end zone nullified by a holding penalty, and having Dwight Freeney drop perhaps the easiest interception chance he'll have the rest of his career. Yes, that's what it took to stop the Colts' undefeated season. And the Cowboys did it all in week 11.

10 (10)

Panthers

6-4

The Panthers kept their new found momentum going with a shutout of the Rams... Week 11 marked the second time this season three teams were shutout in the same week.

11 (8)


Saints

6-4

All season we've been saying how tough New Orleans' schedule is. It's starting to show in the win/loss column, as the Saints lost back to back games for the first time in 2006, falling at home to the Bengals. It also marked the 3rd time in the last 4 weeks the Saints surrendered 30+ points.

12 (14)


Chiefs

6-4

Kansas City avoided a near embarrassment at home versus Oakland in Trent Green's return. The Chiefs remain in decent position to grab a wild card spot, with the main competition being Jacksonville and Cincinnati.

13 (9)

Seahawks

6-4

What can one say about Seattle losing in San Francisco? The 49ers are 4-2 at home, the Seahawks were without Hasselbeck, and it was Alexander's first game back from being injured... Oh, and the Seahawk's defense allowed Gore to rush for 212 yards... A mere 175 more yards than Alexander gained.

14 (15)


Jets

5-5

New York's defense played well enough, but the offense couldn't match, and the Jets were shut out at home by Chicago.

15 (16)

Falcons

5-5

Atlanta couldn't hang in Baltimore. The loss was the Falcons' 3rd in a row.

16 (17)

Bengals

5-5

Cincinnati kept their playoff hopes alive with a huge road win in New Orleans.

17 (12)

Eagles

5-5

With McNabb lost for the remainder of the season, the Eagles' playoff hopes appear to be dashed.

18 (19)

Steelers

4-6

Suddenly the Steelers are pulling out miraulous wins. But the real miracle would be running the table and qualifying for the playoffs in the process.

19 (20)


Bills

4-6

Lee Evans went wild in Houston as Buffalo pulled out a last second win. Still, the Bills are 2 games below the .500 mark.

20 (23)

Dolphins

4-6

The Dolphins were held to -3 yards rushing, but pulled out an improbable win over the Vikings, returning an interception and a fumble for touchdowns in the 4th quarter... But it's going to take an even greater miracle to make the playoffs.

21 (27)

49ers

5-5

Don't look now but the 49ers are in the running for the NFC's final wild card slot thanks to another home win, this time over the Hasselbeckless Seahawks.

22 (18)


Rams

4-6

The Rams lost their 5th game in a row, falling at Carolina. But believe it or not, St. Louis is still a contender for the final wild card slot in the NFC.

23 (21)

Packers

4-6

Green Bay was unable to get back to .500, losing at home 35-0 to New England. Favre missed the second half with an elbow injury.

24 (22)

Vikings

4-6

Minnesota held Miami to -3 yards rushing but still lost thanks to two 4th quarter turnovers being returned for touchdowns. As defeating of a loss as this qualifies as, the Vikings are still in contention for the final wild card slot in the NFC.

25 (24)

Buccaneers

3-7

Tampa Bay scored a home win over Washington. But with 7 losses on the books, it's tough to get excited about any wins.

26 (29)

Titans

3-7

Tennessee grabbed a road win in Philadelphia which was certainly made more obtainable when McNabb was lost for the season at the beginning of the 2nd quarter. Travis Henry continued his success with 143 yards on the ground.

27 (26)

Redskins

3-7

Washington lost for the 7th time in 2006. Although Jason Campbell put forth a solid effort in his first NFL start.

28 (25)

Browns

3-7

Just when Cleveland had some momentum going on the way to grabbing their 4th win, the Browns imploded in the 4th quarter, allowing 21 points to the Steelers en route to their 7th loss of the season.

29 (28)

Texans

3-7

Houston suffered its 7th loss of the season. The pass defense woes re-emerged as the Texans allowed Loseman to connect with Lee Evans for two 83 yard touchdowns in the first quarter.

 

30 (31)

Raiders

2-8

Oakland held a late lead in Kansas City but couldn't hold on for the win.

31 (32)

Cardinals

2-8

Arizona grabbed a home win over Detroit to get out of the bottom spot of the power rankings.

 

32 (30)

 


Lions

2-8

Detroit lost in Arizona, earning the #32 spot in the rankings for the 3rd time this season.
