Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: More Like “Joke” Flacco AMIRITE?

Okay you cretins. You get your wish. The Packers are the best team in the NFL. Not even my bewitching mathematical formulas can deny them of this honor. Although I stand by what I wrote in last week’s power rankings*. I really think the Packers are all Rodgers. It just so happens to be that Rodgers is the best player – not just best quarterback, best player – in the NATIONAL. FOOTBALL. LEAGUE. And his defense that gives up tons of yards always seems to find a way to bail itself out with a takeaway (they lead the league with 16) or hold their opponents to field goals.

The Cowboys continue to vex me. I can’t reconcile them moving up four places after a win over the Rams. And I can’t stand that they’re 9th with a 3-3 record. They’ve played a fairly difficult schedule –  they’re the only team to beat the 49ers, and they should have beaten the Lions and the Patriots – but they haven’t been able to put anybody away. Perhaps they really are this good.

The math of this thing does not appreciate the 62-7 smackdown the Saints laid on the Colts. This sort of result throws some things out of whack. The amusing benefit of this lopsided nonsense is the Colts replace the Rams as the 32nd team. Even though the Rams got destroyed at home by the Cowboys. Power rankings are fun!

Interesting stat of the day: The top four teams in average yards allowed per game are: Baltimore (272.7), Cincinnati (278.5), Pittsburgh (279), and Cleveland (291). If you can figure out what these four teams have in common you win a prize.

*Joe Flacco proved to us last night that he is clearly not the vital cog in Ravens’ offensive attack. Although I’m not convinced we needed last night’s puketastic performance to confirm this. So how is it that Ray Rice had only eight carries? EIGHT! Even Matt Millen knows Rice is the Ravens’ best offensive weapon. How does John Harbaugh not realize that the only way for the Ravens to have any offensive success – unless they are playing the Rams –  is for Rice to carry the ball at least twenty times per game? Bizarre.

Biggest Movers:

  • UP: Saints (12 to 5)
  • DOWN: Titans (11 to 21)
