Week 6 Power Rankings by ESPN


Here is the Week 6 power ranking from ESPN.Com. Where did they rank the Dallas Cowboys after the crushing lost at Cowboys Stadium thanks to the Chicago Bears?

RANK   TEAM RECORD      COMMENTS
1
Texans
 5-0 Upcoming games against Green Bay and Baltimore should finally test the Texans. (Clayton)
2
Falcons
 5-0 The Falcons are 3-0 in games decided by TD or less. They were 1-2 in their final three such games last season. (Sando)
3
49ers
 4-1 They racked up 621 yards against the Bills and easily could have approached the 700 range. (Sando)
4
Ravens
 4-1 Model of consistency: This marks the third straight season that Baltimore has started 4-1. (Hensley)
5
Patriots
 3-2 New England’s offense looks like the 2007 version. Patriots’ last two games: 83 points, 10 touchdowns, two field goals. (Hensley)
6
Bears
 4-1 They don’t even need the ball to beat you. In their past three games, the Bears’ DEFENSE has scored five touchdowns. (Graziano)
7
Giants
 3-2 If the champs can run the ball the way they ran it Sunday, they could have the best offense in the league. (Graziano)
8
Vikings
 4-1 They appear to be legit. They can run the ball and can stop the run. Successful teams have been built on less. (Graziano)
9
Cardinals
 4-1 The Cardinals ranked last in yards per carry before losing Ryan Williams for the season. (Sando)
10
Steelers
 2-2 Ben Roethlisberger recorded his 82nd career win and 25th winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime. (Hensley)
11
Eagles
 3-2 A two-point loss in Pittsburgh is easy to excuse. Two more Michael Vick turnovers… not so much. (Graziano)
12
Packers
 2-3 Yeah, they really should be 3-2, but they’re not. And blowing a big lead to the Colts is a serious alarm bell. (Graziano)
13
Cowboys
 2-2 Jay Ratliff’s post-bye return should help the defense. Dez Bryant needs to step forward and help the offense. (Graziano)
14
Chargers
 3-2 If the Chargers beat Denver at home on Monday night, they will have a two-game lead in the AFC West heading into their bye week. (Fox)
15
Bengals
 3-2 Andy Dalton has a better career record on the road (7-4) than at home (5-5). (Hensley)
16
Seahawks
 3-2 The Seahawks’ top-rated defense (by yards) faces the Patriots’ top-rated offense. (Sando)
17
Broncos
 2-3 The Broncos’ defense has to be able to get off the field on third down to allow Peyton Manning to do what he does. (Fox)
18
Rams
 3-2 The Rams must reconfigure their receiving corps while Danny Amendola rehabs from injury. (Sando)
19
Dolphins
 2-3 Miami is winning battle up front. The Dolphins rank No. 8 in rushing offense (136.2 per game) and first in run defense (61.4). (Hensley)
20
Lions
 1-3 A tough post-bye test is coming this week in Philadelphia as Matthew Stafford & Co. search for that lost 2011 magic. (Graziano)
21
Redskins
 2-3 They gave the Falcons all they had, but RG3 is concussed, and Skins Nation wails in panic. (Graziano)
22
Colts
 2-2 Beating the Packers for Chuck Pagano was one of the best NFL stories in years. (Clayton)
23
Buccaneers
 1-3 We need to see improvement from Josh Freeman and the offense following the team’s bye week. (Sando)
24
Saints
 1-4 Even with a victory, the bye comes at a perfect time for a team needing to regroup. (Sando)
25
Jets
 2-3 After scoring 48 points in the season opener, the Jets have recorded one offensive touchdown in their past two home games. (Hensley)
26
Panthers
 1-4 It’s feeling like a sophomore slump for second-year quarterback Cam Newton. (Sando)
27
Bills
 2-3 Are the Bills quitting? In the fourth quarter of the last two games, they’ve been outscored 52-7. (Hensley)
28
Titans
 1-4 How did the Titans get this bad this quickly? Their defense can’t stop anyone. (Clayton)
29
Raiders
 1-3 Desperately needing a win, the Raiders must travel to Atlanta, where the Falcons rarely lose with Matt Ryan at quarterback. (Fox)
30
Chiefs
 1-4 It appears the Brady Quinn era is upon us. (Fox)
31
Jaguars
 1-4 Instead of putting a tarp on empty seats, how about putting a tarp over the team? (Clayton)
32
Browns
 0-5 Cleveland, which plays Cincinnati this week, is looking for its first AFC North victory since Oct. 3, 2010. (Hensley)
