1: Kansas City Chiefs (Last Week: 1)

Am I a homer for keeping the Chiefs at #1? Maybe, but the Chiefs were so far ahead that even with a drop they should still be #1. Overall I’m comfortable saying that was a one-off result, as the Chiefs unusually gave up a number of huge plays on defense, the kind that can tend to be flukey, and which they haven’t done a lot of before. But it’s obviously concerning that we lost a game that we had no business losing.

3: Green Bay Packers (Last Week: 3)
2: Seattle Seahawks (Last Week: 2)

Fine, I’ll join everybody else and put the Packers as the top team in the NFC. It’s close, but they’ve looked better than the Seahawks or any other NFC team, so far.

4: Pittsburgh Steelers (Last Week: 4)
5: Tennessee Titans
(Last Week: 5)
6: Baltimore Ravens (Last Week: 6)

7: Buffalo Bills (Last Week: 9)
8: New Orleans Saints (Last Week: 7)
9: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Last Week: 8)
10: Indianapolis Colts (Last Week: 10)
11: Los Angeles Rams (Last Week: 11)

I really want to drop the Bucs and Saints, but it’s hard to justify anybody else above them, besides maybe the Rams. The NFC is looking more and more like the Packers and Seahawks, then everybody else.

This group is otherwise static yet again because of bye weeks and the fact that the Titans-Bills matchup was so unusual that it’s hard to draw much of a conclusion from it.

12: Los Angeles Chargers (Last Week: 12)
13: Arizona Cardinals (Last Week: 13)
14: Minnesota Vikings (Last Week: 15)
15: Cleveland Browns (Last Week: 16)

16: Las Vegas Raiders (Last Week: 23)
17: Chicago Bears (Last Week: 24)
18: New England Patriots (Last Week: 30)
19: Dallas Cowboys (Last Week: 14)

The Chargers are 1-4, but 3 of those losses were close games to teams ranked above them, so it’s hard to argue they’re significantly worse than those teams. Although, it is weird how they manage to constantly find ways to lose close games, isn’t it? I always thought it was Rivers’ fault, but perhaps not.

20: Carolina Panthers (Last Week: 26) 
21: Miami Dolphins (Last Week: 18)
22: Houston Texans (Last Week: 19)
23: San Francisco 49ers (Last Week: 17)
24: Jacksonville Jaguars (Last Week: 20)
25: Philadelphia Eagles (Last Week: 21)
26: Detroit Lions (Last Week: 22)

The Texans won by 16, but this may have been the most concerning game of the year. The Jaguars missed 2 field goals, then went for it on 4th down in the red zone and failed. Those go the other way and it could have very easily been much closer. Now that’s not too bad (they still would have won, and a win is a win), but Watson threw two interceptions against an already weak defense missing 3 of it’s best players. There were already questions starting to pop up around Watson this year, and this only takes it to a higher level.

27: Washington Football Team (Last Week: 25)

28: Cincinnati Bengals (Last Week: 27)
29: Atlanta Falcons (Last Week: 28)
30: Denver Broncos (Last Week: 29)
31: New York Giants (Last Week: 31)
32: New York Jets (Last Week: 32)

Alex Smith should win comeback player of the year even if he doesn’t take another snap for the rest of the year. To go from almost losing his leg to playing in the National Football League is unbelievable.

The Raiders deserve to be a little higher and the Chiefs should have dipped. Losing at home should have made them fall to the undefeated team in rank.

The Raiders beat the best team in football with a Qb that makes five times what $100 million Jon makes. It was impressive, even considering the aid from the refs. -_-

The Raiders deserve to be higher than the Chargers. They’ve only won a single game. That’s like giving the Chiefs credit for all those awesome plays where the Raiders still got first downs. Great effort, but not enough.

Chargers and Cowboys still to high, and as much as it pains me to say it for now Raiders are to low. Chiefs should probably drop to the best of the 1-loss if youre trying to be legit and not put homerism into it although theyll be back up at #1 in a couple of weeks, and Cleveland is to low. Outside of that I dont see any real glaring issues

I’d definitely put the Pack over the Chiefs right now. The way you move NO down (which they deserve) is put them below the Colts and Rams. While you’re at it, move the Rams over the Colts. Phyllis is looking very Phyllis like. They can’t sustain such a terrible offense forever. Incidentally, the Ravens actually have a slightly lower yards/gm than the Colts. They’ve got a murders row coming up (Pitt/Indy/NE/Tenn/Pitt). It’ll be interesting to see how they fare.

Am I a homer for keeping the Chiefs at #1?

like DUH! beyond homer, tbh … not sure exactly what it puts you at, but considering the lucky escape against the Pats, you obviously had the Chiefs too high in your mind to begin with … stop with the delusional, it’s not very flattering and only generates arguments about silly rankings

Id move the chargers down. Bad coaching leads to losing close games. Its kibd of fun watching Fangio and Lynn punch it out fkr worst AFC west coach. Considering Fangio is 2-0 against Lynn, I guess Im Fangio for now.

Id move the Bungals up.
