NFL Power Rankings ... and Sour Rankings Through Week 6

You've seen NFL power rankings before, but here at gatosclub we're also interested in the bottom of the barrel. As far as power rankings go, we're looking at what teams have done on the field, with a bit of an eye toward the future. We're also going to include our Sour Rankings, though, which will look at the teams that have had the worst performances and poor prospects.

So without further ado, here's a look at our NFL Power Rankings, featuring the best eight teams following Week 6. And the Sour Rankings, featuring the worst eight squads the league has to offer. Power Rankings

1. Buffalo Bills -- The Bills stay atop our Power Rankings after handling the Chiefs on Sunday. The 24-20 win is just the latest chapter in what we think will be an ongoing saga. Hopefully we see them meet in the playoffs again but hopefully later down the line.

2. Kansas City Chiefs -- The Chiefs fell to the Bills, but I have a hard time thinking the Eagles would do a lot better than KC did against Buffalo. The AFC teams are 1-2 for me.

3. Philadelphia Eagles -- They're still undefeated and just beat the rival Cowboys. They were close to keeping their No. 2 spot, but they let Dallas fight back in the Sunday night win, which made me feel better about the Cowboys, oddly, since they were without Dak Prescott.

4. Minnesota Vikings -- With the 49ers, Ravens, Buccaneers and Cowboys all losing, the 5-1 Vikings get to move up four spots after defeating the Dolphins, who were still without Tua Tagovailoa.

5. N.Y. Giants -- Power rankings get weird when you have teams higher than teams they've lost to. We have that here as the Giants fell to the Cowboys without Prescott, but New York deserves it at this point after what I'd deem a quality win over the Ravens on Sunday.

6. San Francisco 49ers -- A surprising loss to the Falcons has them down two spots for me. Jimmy Garoppolo is still the guy we expected to get replaced by Trey Lance. It's not the worst situation for the 49ers, but we know what Jimmy G. is.

7. Baltimore Ravens -- I expected them to beat the Giants, but the loss has them drop two spots. They did hold a lead, so perhaps it was just a matter of closing.

8. Dallas Cowboys -- The Cowboys run with Cooper Rush has seemingly come to an end, but they still had a shot against the last undefeated team in the league. If Prescott can play even close to how he did last season, they'll be a major player in the league.



Sour Rankings

25. Arizona Cardinals -- I keep thinking they'll end up fixing their issues, but now I'm starting to doubt even the return of DeAndre Hopkins will help much.

26. Detroit Lions -- We had them at No. 30 after the first week but moved them out of the Sour Rankings once we saw the offense produce well. They were off this week but just have one win and are coming off a self-described "rock bottom."

27. Pittsburgh Steelers -- They move up three spots after beating the Buccaneers, but that win may have more to do with Tampa Bay than the Steelers.

28. Houston Texans -- They move up a spot while idle, and they could make up some ground against some falling teams like the Cardinals, Saints and Lions.

29. Las Vegas Raiders -- They also had a bye this week and are set to face the Texans in Week 7.

30. Washington Commanders -- Washington moves up a spot only because they beat the second-worst team in the league.

31. Chicago Bears -- The Bears could be worse, but they could be a lot better. I don't expect them to finish at this spot by the end of the season.

32. Carolina Panthers -- After getting their coach fired, players are practically walking off the team. Robbie Anderson is a Cardinal now and the bleeding hasn't stopped following a two-touchdown loss to the Rams.
