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.

Rank

NFL Team

Record

Comments November 18, 2008

1/1


Giants

9-1

The Giants showed off their offensive line power by running over the Baltimore Ravens.

2/2

Titans

10-0

Trailing 14-3 at the half on Jacksonville, the Titans outscored the Jags 21-0 in the second half to remain perfect.

3/6

Panthers

8-2

Carolina stayed one game ahead of the Buccaneers thanks to their week 11 home victory over the Lions.

4/3


Colts

6-4

It wasn't pretty, but the Colts fended off the Texans to improve to two games above .500, while remaining on pace for a wild card spot.

5/4

Steelers

7-3

The Steelers took another step towards icing the North by squeaking out a victory over the Chargers.

6/7

Cardinals

7-3

The Cardinals moved another step closer to locking up the NFC West with a road victory over the Seahawks... The champs come to town in week 12. A victory would keep Arizona in contention for a first round playoff-bye.

7/8


Cowboys

6-4

With Romo back in action but quite rusty, the Cowboys used solid running and defense to save their season with a 4th quarter comeback win at Washington.

8/11

Buccaneers

7-3

Tampa Bay stayed in the hunt for the NFC South with a come from behind home win over the Vikings... Graham may be out for the year.

9/5

Redskins

6-4

Washington had a chance to deal the Cowboys a huge blow as far as playoffs possibilities go, but they fell at home. As a result, Washington's own playoff possibilities suffered a major blow. This could very well be the game which keeps them out.

10/16


Jets

7-3

The Jets took sole possession of first place in the AFC East thanks to a dramatic overtime victory at New England... A trip to Tennessee is on deck. If the Jets can get win number eight in week 12, you can pretty much pencil them into the playoffs.

11/10

Ravens

6-4

Baltimore's D-line couldn't handle the Giants' O-line, and the Ravens were crushed. Baltimore's four losses this season have come against, the Steelers, the Titans, the Colts, and the Giants... Rough draw, eh?

12/17

Dolphins

6-4

The Dolphins kept their winning ways going with a narrow victory over the Raiders. Miami's game of the year comes this week at home against New England... A win keeps the Dolphins in the playoff hunt, while a loss may prove too much to overcome in the standings.

13/14

Patriots

6-4

Cassel had a major coming out party, but the Patriots had a too many mishaps to beat the Jets at home, and they fell in overtime. This loss may very well keep New England out of the playoffs.

14/9

Eagles

5-4-1

A disheartened Eagles squad that failed to beat the Giants at home saw their playoff hopes more than likely put to rest by playing to a tie in Cincinnati.

15/21

Broncos

6-4

The Broncos won in Atlanta-- it was Denver's second road win in a row. The power rankings approve, and more importantly the Broncos are back on track to winning the AFC West.

16/12

Falcons

6-4

The Falcons might have seen their playoffs hopes dashed with their home loss to the Broncos... Atlanta's remaining schedule isn't easy.

17/18

Packers

5-5

The Packers' hopes for winning the NFC North were rekindled thanks to mauling the Bears in Green Bay.

18/13


Bears

5-5

The Bears were obliterated in Green Bay. Chicago's playoff hopes are in jeopardy mostly thanks to way too many blown leads this season.

19/15

Vikings

5-5

Minnesota's playoff aspirations took a hit as they let one get away in Tampa Bay.

20/24

Browns

4-6

Cleveland eaked out a victory Monday night in Buffalo... But it's too little too late, as the Browns' 2008 season will go down as a tail of a brutal schedule.

21/22


Saints

5-5

The Saints got back to .500 with a win in Kansas City, but they'll need a miracle to qualify for the postseason.

22/23

Chargers

4-6

The Chargers lost a heartbreaker in Pittsburgh and now trail the Broncos by two games in the AFC West-- not to mention Denver has a game in hand... You do the math.

23/19


Bills

5-5

Monday night, hosting Cleveland, a shot to stay in the wild card hunt on the line... Wide right.

24/20

Jaguars

4-6

Jacksonville had a double digit lead on the Titans at halftime. But Tennessee blew them out in the second half, essentially ending Jacksonville's season... Quite a disappointing follow up to last year's divisional round playoff game in New England.

25/25

Texans

3-7

The Texans weren't able to exact revenge on the Colts at Indianapolis. The loss dropped Houston to four games below .500... Better luck next year.

26/28

Bengals

1-8-1

Cincinnati played Philadelphia to a tie at home. That makes two straight games without an "L"... Progress.

27/31

49ers

3-7

San Francisco demolished the Rams at home. It was their second well played game in row. Keep an eye on these Singletary Niners.

28/27

Raiders

2-8

The Raiders made it a game at Miami, but in the end they accomplished what they accomplish most weeks... Another "L".

29/26


Rams

2-8

The Rams were blown out in San Francisco. The loss dropped St. Louis to 6 games below .500. Enough said.

30/29


Chiefs

1-9

The Chiefs couldn't match scores with the Saints and they fell at home. The loss dropped K.C. to eight games below .500. Draft position, draft position, draft position.

31/30

Seahawks

2-8

Seattle lost at home to Arizona and passed the NFC West torch to the Cards.

32/32

Lions

0-10

Detroit remained winless-- as they incurred loss number 10 at the claws of the Panthers. All signs still point to a winless season.
