The NFL power rankings are out for Week 10. No doubt, the New Orleans Saints are on the move. Who Dat Dish’s Dean Mullen gives his rankings.
The NFL is heading into mid-season. And the Saints are filled with plenty of confidence at the moment. Their 6-game winning streak has fans salivating at the possibility of a playoff run. In another piece Who Dat Dish released today, we showed a roundup of power rankings from around the world of NFL media coverage. And today, I give my own take.
This year, the NFC is way ahead of the AFC so far. Still though, there are plenty of games to be played. Philadelphia is the consensus pick as being the #1 team in the NFL. After that, there are about nine other teams that fall into the first tier of playoff contenders.
The L.A. Rams have to be surprise team in the NFC at 6-2. The Rams are coming off of a thumping of the New York Giants 51-17 Sunday. On the other side, most of the experts have the Pittsburgh Steelers the overwhelming favorite out of the AFC. However, how could anyone bet against the New England Patriots right now?
Presumably, Kansas City looked to be the AFC juggernaut early on. But since then they have fallen. That being said, there’s still plenty of season left. Here is my Top 10
- Philadelphia Eagles
- Los Angeles Rams
- New England Patriots
- Pittsburgh Steelers
- Minnesota Vikings
- New Orleans Saints
- Carolina Panthers
- Kansas City Chiefs
- Seattle Seahawks
- Dallas Cowboys
