    We’re at week 7 and all we can say is this has been one crazy season. From teams not doing as we expected to teams doing over and above what was expected of them. I will say this has been one of the best seasons I’ve ever been a part of and it will only get better. Without further ado, I bring to you this week’s edition of the Power Rankings.

    Season 2 Power Rankings edition 3(week 7)
    1) Indianapolis Colts(Prev: 1) – The Lone undefeated team left in the PMFL, this well oiled machine just keeps rolling. After 2 impressive wins over the Bengals and Ravens the Colts head into the bye clicking on all cylinders and it will be interesting to see if they have any rust after the bye week. Steve Smith(wr) is proving to be a huge acquisition as he has become Petyon’s favorite target and is currently leading the team in receiving yards.

    2) Miami Dolphins(Prev: 4) – The early season surprise, the Dolphins went from unranked in the preseason to #2. Unsure if anybody has noticed but the Phins have played their first 5 games on the road with their first home game coming this week against another surprise in the Buffalo Bills. Chris Johnson continues to lead this team as he has racked up close to 1,000 yards on the ground and receiving and if he can continue this pace, he will not only be a mvp candidate but may lead the Phins to the playoffs.

    3) New York Jets(Prev: 6) – Coming off a bye the Jets will travel to the tough confines on Mile High Stadium in week 7. Luke Mccown appears to be settling into the offense and Knowshon Moreno is providing that steady force on the ground. The defense is holding their own allowing only 18 points per game which is keeping the team in games. Only a few more weeks until Sanchez returns so they just have to hold on a little bit longer.

    4) New England Patriots(Prev: 10) – Riding a 2 game winning streak including a shutout of the AFC West leading Kansas City Chiefs, the Patriots come in at #4. They appear to have their running game going in the past couple weeks, add that to their new receiving threat in Taylor Price and it makes teams think twice about giving so much attention to Randy Moss. Their defense is strong once again coming in 1st in points allowed and will continue to be the backbone of this team.

    5) Tennessee Titans(Prev: UR) One of the best kept secrets this season, the Titans are plowing through opponents winning by at least 20 points. Their only blemish is a close 3 point loss to the mighty Colts but the Titans can play with anybody. With steady balance in both the run and pass this offense is scary. Not to be outdone, their defense is 2nd in points allowed and is one of the best at forcing turnovers. Look out for this team.

    6) St. Louis Rams(Prev: 3) – Our first NFC team, the Rams come in at #6. After a close loss to division rival 49ers in week 5, the Rams rebounded with a win against another rival in the Cardinals. With Bradford and Jackson coming back look for the Rams offense to be even more explosive. The defense is also much improved from last year, holding teams to 19.8 points per game which is good for 6th best in the league.

    7) Minnesota(Prev:2) After a shocking loss to an impressive Falcons team in week 5, the Vikes would squeak out an important divisional win against the Bears in week 6. Adrian Peterson is still proving to be one of the best if not the best back in the league and the tandem of Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice gives rookie Bronson Patterson more than enough weapons to toy with. With a top 10 defense of their own the Vikes appear in great shape for a long run.

    8) Washington Redskins(Prev: 5) – After an important win against defending NFC and NFC East champion Giants the Dolphins would fall to the Dolphins in week 6. The rookie tandem of Jermaine Baker and Jelan Robinson has taken some of the pressure off of Mcnabb who appears to be getting used to all the young guys around him. The Skins have a big matchup with the Giants in the New Meadowlands stadium in week 7 and if they want to win the NFC East, this game would be a huge step in the right direction.

    9) San Francisco 49ers(Prev: UR) - Riding a 2 game winning streak including a win versus hated rival Rams the 49ers come in at #9. Led by Frank Gore and Vernon Davis on offense and perennial MVP Candidate Patrick Willis on defense it’s a wonder the 49ers aren’t better than they are. However, they are a well coached team and if Alex Smith can continue to improve this team can definitely make some noise in a wide open NFC.

    10) Atlanta Falcons(Prev: UR) – Rounding out our top 10 this week are the NFC South leading Atlanta Falcons. I don’t think many expected the Falcons to be leading a division with 2 playoff teams from last season but they are proving everybody wrong. With big wins against the Vikings and rival Bucs(week 7) the Falcons are quietly putting together a nice 3 game winning streak. If they can continue to play sound football the Falcons can definitely take over in the NFC South in which all teams are close.

    There you have it fellas. Once again, lots of movement with teams dropping and jumping which only speaks to the type of competition we have in this league. With the top 5 comprised of AFC teams and the bottom 5 NFC it will only make interconference battles that much more intense as teams try to fight to prove their conference is the stronger of the two. Keep up the good work fellas and good luck to those who haven’t played their week 7 games!
