NFL Power Rankings 2016 Week 5
Here are the updated NFL Power Rankings for Week 5
|1||Broncos||The defense faces a stiff challenge this week against the Falcons' high-scoring offense. Can they slow Matt Ryan?||1||5-11-0|
|2||Vikings||That defense is legit and Sam Bradford is playing good football. They have a Super Bowl look to them right now.||1||13-3-0|
|3||Packers||They come off their bye with a home game against the Giants. They seemed to get the offense going against the Lions before the break. Will that carry over?||1||7-9-0|
|4||Patriots||Now that Tom Brady is back, they should move back to the top of this list at some point this season. Going 3-1 without him was huge.||3||13-3-0|
|5||Eagles||The big question moving forward is whether rookie quarterback Carson Wentz can keep it up. He looks like he can.||--||13-3-0|
|6||Steelers||With all those playmakers on offense, Ben Roethlisberger is going to roll up a ton of yards and touchdown passes. They will be tough to stop.||--||13-3-0|
|7||Seahawks||They looked like a real Super Bowl contender against the Jets. That's the Seahawks we expected to see this season.||--||9-7-0|
|8||Cowboys||Dak Prescott continues to play well and take care of the football. Does he keep the job when Tony Romo comes back?||1||9-7-0|
|9||Texans||They have a two-game lead in the division after a month, which makes them the team to beat. But not having J.J. Watt will hurt.||2||4-12-0|
|10||Raiders||They have three road victories in four weeks, which means something. The defense is improving each week.||3||6-10-0|
|11||Falcons||With their offense, they can score on anybody. We think. Let's see what happens this week at Denver.||6||10-6-0|
|12||Ravens||They could easily be 4-0, but their late loss to the Raiders will sting. But how good are they?||4||9-7-0|
|13||Bengals||They have a tough game this week at Dallas, but they are getting healthy. They could have Tyler Eifert back this week.||2||7-9-0|
|14||Rams||At 3-1, the defense is carrying this team. But at some point, you have to score more points.||4||11-5-0|
|15||Giants||The injuries in the secondary showed up against the Vikings. Now they get Aaron Rodgers. Better hope guys get back.||1||3-13-0|
|16||Panthers||They have major problems in a lot of areas. And now Cam Newton's concussion could be an issue.||6||11-5-0|
|17||Chiefs||That was a horror show in Pittsburgh. Was that really the same defense that picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick six times a week ago?||5||10-6-0|
|18||Redskins||At 2-2, they've evened their record after the 0-2 start. Now they face the Ravens in Baltimore.||4||7-9-0|
|19||Bills||They are now 2-2 and Rex Ryan has turned this thing around. They have a tough trip to Los Angeles to face the Rams this week.||5||9-7-0|
|20||Jets||They can't win with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback. It's time to make a change.||1||5-11-0|
|21||Chargers||They've blown two 13-point fourth-quarter leads in two games. That's tough to take.||--||9-7-0|
|22||Cardinals||Who ever imagined they'd be down this far after the first month? Carson Palmer hasn't been the same quarterback.||8||8-8-0|
|23||Dolphins||The early schedule was brutal, but they have so many issues right now. It's going to take time to fix this roster.||--||6-10-0|
|24||Saints||Was that a season-saving victory at San Diego? It had that feel to it, but they have a long way to go.||5||11-5-0|
|25||Bears||Should Brian Hoyer stay in as the starter if Jay Cutler is healthy? That's absurd.||5||5-11-0|
|26||Jaguars||They finally got their first victory, which could get them going. They head to the bye and then play at Chicago.||5||10-6-0|
|27||Colts||This is a team that some picked to win the AFC South. At 1-3, they sure don't look like they will now.||7||4-12-0|
|28||Buccaneers||They are throwing it way too much, which is a problem. But the defense isn't good enough, which forces it.||3||5-11-0|
|29||49ers||Is it time to make a quarterback change? Or does that short week put that off for another week?||3||6-10-0|
|30||Lions||They just haven't played well, and it might cost Jim Caldwell his job. The offense didn't look good against the Bears.||3||9-7-0|
|31||Titans||At 1-3, they need to get it going -- or else. Coach Mike Mularkey is already on the hot seat.||3||9-7-0|
|32||Browns||At least they battle each week. That's a tribute to coach Hue Jackson.||--||0-16-0|
