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 October 14, 2008

1/4

Titans

5-0

With the Giants, Redskins, and Cowboys all getting upset in the same week, the Titans are the last team standing at the top of the rankings.

2/1


Giants

4-1

The Giants' road winning streak came to an end Monday night in Cleveland. Fortunately for the G-men, both Washington and Dallas were also upset in week 6.

3/2

Redskins

4-2

Washington held St. Louis to just 200 yards of offense while their own offense tallied nearly double (368 yards)... Yet somehow the Redskins let this game get away.

4/10

Buccaneers

4-2

Tampa Bay moved into a tie for 1st with Carolina and Atlanta-- thanks to their week 6 crushing of the Panthers. The Bucs have a game in hand against both teams.

5/18

Cardinals

4-2

Warner and crew headed into their bye week in style with a dramatic overtime victory over the Cowboys on a blocked punt that went for a touchdown.

6/3


Cowboys

4-2

Dallas suffered their second loss of the season, falling at Arizona in overtime. Romo suffered a broken pinky on his right hand and will miss several games.

7/5

Panthers

4-2

The Panthers had an opportunity to separate themselves from the Buccaneers in the chase for the AFC South but were decimated in Tampa by a score of 27-3 as Delhomme was picked off 3 times by the Bucs.

8/6


Bears

3-3

Let me tell you a little story about a team that should be (6-0), but instead suffered its third blown lead loss of the season... Chicago's defense was unable to hold off the Falcons in the closing moments; an all too familiar story for the Bears this year.

9/7

Eagles

3-3

The Eagles used 23 fourth quarter points to top the Niners in San Francisco and get back to the .500 mark, while also gaining a game on the Giants, Redskins, and Cowboys.

10/8

Steelers

4-1

The Steelers had a bye in week 6 and will get back to action in week 7 at Cincinnati.

11/9


Colts

3-2

The Colts got back above the .500 mark with a home smashing of the Ravens. Considering Indianapolis' injury ridden slow start to the 2008 season, a record of (3-2) must be looking mighty fine to Manning and crew.

12/12

Chargers

3-3

Rivers and Jackson torched the Patriots in a 20 point romp Sunday night. The win got San Diego back to .500.

13/22

Falcons

4-2

Looks like Matt Ryan is already the real deal. He has the Falcons in a three way tie for first place in the NFC South thanks to a drive in the closing moments to set up a game winning field goal against the Bears.

14/13

Packers

3-3

The Packers ended their losing streak, got back to .500 and moved into a first place tie with Chicago and Minnesota thanks to a road win over a Seattle team playing without Hasselbeck.

15/14

Vikings

3-3

The Vikings already fumbled away one game this season (@Tennessee) and nearly did it again this week at home against the Lions in a game in which they out-yarded Detroit nearly two to one (392 to 212). With the win the Vikings moved into a 3-way tie with Chicago and Green Bay in the NFC North, although the Packers currently have a game in hand over the Vikes.

16/15


Saints

3-3

The Saints bounced back from their Monday night loss to the Vikings with a blowout of the Raiders in New Orleans. Unfortunately for the Saints, Tampa Bay, Carolina, and Atlanta are all tied for first at (4-2).

17/19


Bills

4-1

The Bills had a bye in week 6 and will get back to action in week 7 at home against the Chargers in a game that could have wild card implications.

18/23

Jaguars

3-3

The Jaguars got back to .500 with a win at Denver. Overall this season Jacksonville doesn't look as strong as in previous years.

19/11

Broncos

4-2

The Broncos were handled at home by the Jaguars. Perhaps they were looking ahead to the Patriots... But I don't know why... Bottom line, the Broncos are fortunate not to be (2-4) right now.

20/20

Dolphins

2-3

Miami followed up their back to back upsets of the Patriots and Chargers by losing in the closing moments at previously winless Houston.

21/16

Patriots

3-2

The Patriots were hammered in San Diego on Sunday night. But with their easy schedule, taking the AFC East is still a possibility.

22/17


Jets

3-2

The Jets got back above .500 with a win over the Palmerless Bengals. With contests coming up against the Raiders and Chiefs the Jets have a solid chance to be (5-3) heading into their week 9 duel at Buffalo. As far as power rankings, while the Jets did beat Miami in week 1, they also lost to New England and San Diego. Meanwhile the Dolphins beat both the Chargers and Patriots. Of course the Jets' win over Arizona is looking better and better. Bottom line, there is not a lot of space between these teams right now.

23/21

Ravens

2-3

After letting back to back games slip away against two top 10 teams (Pittsburgh and Tennessee) the Ravens collapsed at Indianapolis, suffering their 3rd straight defeat.

24/30

Browns

2-3

Anderson and crew pulled a stunning upset of the Giants on Monday night. But will it be enough to save their season?

25/27

Texans

1-4

After giving away more than their fair share of games in the closing moments this season, the Texans finally turned the tide and scored a victory in the closing moments at home against the hot Dolphins. Unfortunately at (1-4) it's probably too little too late.

26/24

49ers

2-3

The 49ers couldn't hold a lead against the Eagles at home as they allowed 23 fourth quarter points. The loss dropped the Niners below the .500 mark.

27/26

Bengals

0-6

Without Carlson Palmer the Bengals couldn't muster enough offense to hang on the road against the Jets. While the Bengals' defense has been much better this season, it hasn't resulted in any wins; thanks in part to a tough schedule and Palmer's injury woes.

28/25

Raiders

1-4

The Raiders dropped to three games below .500 after getting blown out at New Orleans.

29/32


Rams

1-4

Outgained nearly 2:1, St. Louis managed to upset Washington as Haslett's Rams moved to (1-0).

30/29

Seahawks

1-4

Without Hasselbeck the Seahawks couldn't get anything going on offense against Green Bay, and fell to three games below .500.

31/28


Chiefs

1-4

The Chiefs had a bye in week 6 and will get back to action at home in week 7 against the undefeated Titans.

32/31

Lions

0-5

Playing without Kitna, Detroit won the turnover battle in Minnesota but couldn't hang on for the victory.
