Caloy’s 2011 NFL Power Rankings (Week 5)

12 10 2011
The new NFL logo went into use at the 2008 draft.

Image via Wikipedia

The season so far has full of surprises and the blog would like to offer its first National Football League power rankings. If you wanna ask how did I come up with the ranks, the first thing I consider is the record. I do not care if a team is feasting on losing teams. Wins matter and with the season that is full of surprises, it is quite hard to differentiate between good teams and bad teams. So here are my rankings:

  1. Green Bay (5-0) – Unless defeated the defending champs are the No.1 team in the NFL. QB Aaron Rodgers has a league leading 122.9 QB Rating.
  2. Detroit (5-0) – The Lions has shown the viewing public that they can win on primetime.  Calvin Johnson has 9 receiving TDs in 5 games.
  3. San Francisco (4-1) – The only blemish to their record is their OT defeat to Dallas. Rookie LB Aldon Smith has 3.5 sacks in the last 2 games.
  4. New England (4-1) – The No.1 passing offense punished the Jets this week. Wes Welker has 45 receptions for 740 yards in 5 games.
  5. Buffalo (4-1) – Recovered after falling to the Bengals by a FG to win against the slumping Eagles in Week 5.  RB Fred Jackson has rushed 480 yards with 5 TDs.
  6. New Orleans (4-1) – Has won 4 straight after a loss to the Packers in the season opener. QB Drew Brees is 2nd in yards (1769) and completion percentage (69.4%).
  7. San Diego (4-1) – The Chargers won a close game against Broncos for their 3rd straight victory. The team is giving up just 179.6 passing yards a game (2nd in the league).
  8. Baltimore (3-1) – Had a bye week after routing the Rams and the Jets. The Ravens are just giving up 72.5 yards from the ground (2nd in the NFL).
  9. Washington (3-1) – The Redskins enjoyed a week 5 bye after escaping the winless Rams in Week 4. The team led by Brian Orakpo (3.5) and Adam Carriker has 15 sacks already in 4 games.
  10. Cincinnati (3-2) – The Bengals has won 2 straight games. A.J. Green-Andy Dalton rookie combo has connected for 3 TDs.

11.Pittsburgh (3-2) – The Steelers beat the Titans at home, 38-17, a week after losing to the Texans. The defense has only 1 INT but they are only giving up league-leading 174 yards a game from the air.

12. Tennessee (3-2) – The 3-game winning streak of the Titans was snapped by the Steelers. Matt Hasselbeck has thrown 9 TDs with only 4 interceptions.

13. NY Giants (3-2) – The Giant’s winning streak ended at 3 with a loss to the Seahawks. Eli Manning has 11 TDs with a 102.3 QB rating.

14. Oakland (3-2) – The Raiders have alternated wins and losses in the first 5 weeks of the season. Darren McFadden leads the league with 519 rushing yards.

15. Houston (3-2) – The Texans lost to an inspired Oakland Raiders in Week 5, 25-20. Ben Tate and Arian Forster have combined for 577 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns.

16. Tampa Bay (3-2) – The Buccaneers had a horrendous effort in San Francisco in Week 5 as they lost 3-48 snapping a 3-game winning streak.  Josh Freeman has only 3 TDs with 6 picks.

17. Dallas (2-2) – The Cowboys had a bye week after an embarrassing loss to the Lions. They still lead the league in opposing rushing yards per game as they limit opponents to 61.8 rushing ypg.

18. Cleveland (2-2) – Colt McCoy and the Browns have so far split their 4 matches before their Week 5 bye. They are very effective against the pass as they only give up 195.5 passing yards a game (4th in the NFL),

19. NY Jets (2-3) – The Jets has lost 3 straight games after falling to the Patriots 21-30 in Week 5. The team has only given up 3 passing TDs and opposing QBs have a 66.6 rating against their defense.

20. Atlanta (2-3) – The Falcons has so far alternated losses and wins in 5 games this season. Rookie Julio Jones has 25 receptions for 358 yards but has zero touchdowns so far.

21. Seattle (2-3) – The Seahawks surprised the Giants in New York for their second win of the season. DE Chris Clemons has 4 sacks in the last 4 games.

22. Kansas City (2-3) – After starting the season with 3 losses, the Chiefs feasted on 2 winless teams to go 2-3 after week 5. All the 8 touchdowns of the team came from the air.

23. Chicago (2-3) – The Bears lost a Monday Night game against the Lions and have fallen 3 games behind the Lions and Packers in the NFC North standings. Their defense is ranked 28th against the run and 27th against the pass.

24. Minnesota (1-4) – The Vikings finally nailed its first win of the season after losing halftime leads in their other games. Adrian Peterson is still the Viking’s main man with 498 rushing yards along with 6 huge touchdowns.

27. Carolina (1-4) – Cam Newton and Panthers lost 4 close games this season. The rookie QB Newton has 1,610 yards passing and 7 TDs so far.

28. Arizona (1-4) – The Cardinals have slumped to 4 straight loses after beating the Panthers in Week 1.  RB Beanie Wells has been a workhorse with 6 rushing TDs already.

29. Jacksonville (1-4) – The Jaguars have lost for the 4th straight time after winning their home opener against the Titans. The team has the league worst passing offense with only 150 yards a game.

30. Miami (0-4) –  The Dolphins are coming off a bye week and they will be facing a sliding NY Jets team. Miami has the 2nd worst passing defense as opposing QBs average 307 yards passing against them.

31. St. Louis (0-4) – The Rams are the only team left in the NFC without a win. Opposing running backs can run all day against their defense as they give up an NFL-worst 179.8 rushing yards a game.

32. Indianapolis (0-5) – The Colts have the league’s worst record after 5 straight loses in their Peyton-less season. They rank 30th in rushing offense while their rushing defense is 2nd worst in the league.
