2015 NFL Power Rankings Week 6 (updated)
The fifth week of the 2015 season is in the books, and even though there is a long, long way to go, it is never too early for some NFL Power Rankings.
Five games might not seem like much, but the sample size is just big enough to make a few judgements on teams. The Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears and New York Giants made the biggest jump this week. All three teams each moved up five spots, but the Browns and Bears are still outside the top 20 while the Giants advanced into the Top 10.
The Detroit Lions, who are the only winless team left in the league, made the biggest drop, falling nine spots.
Keep in mind that the rankings are serious but the comments are generally not. Let's be real, after reading lots and lots of serious football articles breaking down every little detail, fans could use a good laugh.
Without further ado, here are Football Nation's NFL Power Rankings heading into Week 6.
1. New England Patriots (4-0)
Even Tom Brady haters were rooting for him over Greg Hardy on Sunday.
2. Green Bay Packers (5-0)
Three turnovers for Aaron Rodgers versus the Rams?? He's human!!
3. Cincinnati Bengals (5-0)
The last time the Bengals were 5-0, Ronald Reagan was President
4. Denver Broncos (5-0)
Who is that playing quarterback in Peyton Manning's body?
5. Arizona Cardinals (4-1)
Cardinals fans be like "Why can't we play the Seahawks now instead of when they are peaking at the end of the season?" Atlanta Falcons (5-0)
6. Atlanta Falcons (5-0)
Tevin who? Devonta Freeman is the man in Atlanta.
7. Carolina Panthers (4-0)
The same goes for the Carolina Panthers.
8. New York Jets (3-1)
Things are good when you move up in the power rankings and donâ€™t even play.
9. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2)
Hey wouldn't you know? The Steelers didn't leave it up to a kick and won.
11. Buffalo Bills (3-2)
Was there no discipline in the Ryan household? The Bills average nearly 11 penalties per game.
12. St. Louis Rams (2-3)
If you don't succeed, try, try again. Jeff Fisher tried three field goals from 50+ yards on Sunday versus the Green Bay Packers, and Greg Zuerlein missed all three.
13. Seattle Seahawks (2-3)
No referee bailing the Seahawks out this week.
14. Indianapolis Colts (3-2)
I take back everything I said about your performance, Mr. Luck. Please come back and help my fantasy team!
15. Minnesota Vikings (2-2)
Nice camera work.
16. San Diego Chargers (2-3)
Does anyone lose in worse ways than the Chargers?? Lions fans say yes, but still.
17. Philadelphia Eagles (2-3)
The Eagles want to bring Chase Utley back to Philadelphia to play defense.
18. Dallas Cowboys (2-3)
Tony Romo playing with a broken collar bone might be better than Brandon Weeden.
19. Oakland Raiders (2-3)
Is Marcel Reese the only fullback left in the league?
20. Washington (2-3) 20
21. Kansas City Chiefs (1-4)
Sunday was not a good day for Kansas City sports.
22. Cleveland Browns (2-3)
Who the heck is Gary Barnidge?
23. Baltimore Ravens (1-4)
No Josh Scobee to bail out the Ravens this week.
24. Houston Texans (1-4)
Imagine if DeAndre Hopkins had a real quarterback throwing him passes.
25. San Francisco 49ers (1-4)
Hey Colin, you might want to check the differential between the game clock and play clock before calling a timeout.
26. Chicago Bears (2-3)
Was that really Jay Cutler leading the Bears to a last minute victory on Sunday?
27. Tennessee Titans (1-3)
The Tennessee Volunteers didn't blow a lead on Saturday, so it was only natural for the other big Tennessee football team to do so.
28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-3)
Woah, two wins!
29. Miami Dolphins (1-3)
Things have to be bad to fall three spots in the power rankings in a week where you don't even play.
30. Detroit Lions (0-5)
Megatron isn't doing much this season. Maybe we should change his nickname to bumblebee?
31. New Orleans Saints (1-4)
It doesn't help when your defenders tackle each other.
32. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-4)
The Jaguars and Buccaneers game was surprisingly entertaining, but it still hurt my eyes. The uniforms for both teams are quite ugly.
