NFL Awesome Rankings: #9

It was a NICE Thanksgiving break for the while JWSportsBlog family. And I don’t mean the people I work with, it’s just me here. I mean my REAL family. Anyway, we were so busy I had no time to update the College picks for this week, but I would have gotten them all right. OF COURSE Nevada was going to beat Boise State. But alas, this is the NFL’s time to shine, with the 9th helping of the Awesome Rankings. Here they are:

1. Atlanta Falcons (9-2) (#2 last week): A new #1. The Falcons have been VERY impressive week to week. With a win over last week’s #7 team, the Falcons are now on top of the NFL rankings. Matt Ryan and the well balanced offense are fun to watch and continue to put up great numbers. The band wagon is filling up quickly.

2. New England Patriots (9-2) (#1 last week): Started off slow against a feisty Detroit team, but then turned on the jets. Wait what? Anyway, this team continues to impress with a bunch of “no name” guys lead by Brady. Next week’s game is going to be HUGE. (They play the Jets..)

3. New York Jets (9-2) (#4 last week): Have won 4 games in a row, but the most important one is coming up. The #2 Patriots await. Will we get superstar Sanchez or second year Sanchez this week?

4. Baltimore Ravens (8-3) (#5 last week): Kind of like the Falcons, this team is great at home. 5-0 this season. One a tough game over Tampa this past week, but they proved once again that the “D” is legit.

5. Pittsburgh Steelers (8-3) (#6 last week): It took a Steve Johnson drop to get the win, but the Steelers will take it. Injuries are a concern, but this team still has a great defense.

6. New Orleans Saints (8-3) (#9 last week): The Saints move up 3 spots this week after their “crazy” win over Dallas on Thanksgiving Day. Honestly, if Roy Williams hangs on to the ball the Cowboys probably would have won, but that’s the way football go.

7. Chicago Bears (8-3) (not ranked): The 1st appearance for the Bears this season on the JWSBAR. Thanks to their aggressive D and “safe” offense, the Bears are one of the surprise teams so far this season. Can they keep it up? Great win last week over Philly.

8. Green Bay Packers (7-4) (#7 last week): Dropped a spot after losing to #1 Atlanta, but don’t let that fool you. Many believe this team is still the best in the NFC. The run game is very “iffy” though.

9. Philadelphia Eagles (7-4) (#3 last week): This week’s biggest drop. The Eagles had a chance to stake claim to the top spot in the NFC, but were unable to beat the Bears. Michael Vick is still the comeback player of the year.

10. San Diego Chargers (6-5) (#8 last week): While their win over Indy was great, other teams were more impressive, so they fell. Not their fault, they are still a VERY dangerous team.

Just Missed the Cut: New York Giants; Kansas City Chiefs
