NFL Power Rankings ... and Sour Rankings Through Week 7

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 7. 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 taking their bye week as they get set to face the Packers, who are reeling following a loss to the Commanders.


2. Kansas City Chiefs -- The Chiefs would have jumped about any other team if the Bills weren't in the top spot. Kansas City throttled the 49ers in a statement win following the close loss to Buffalo.


3. Philadelphia Eagles -- They're still undefeated as they took their bye in preparation for what should be an easy win against the Steelers in Week 8.


4. N.Y. Giants -- The Giants followed up a quality win over the Ravens with a comeback win over the Jags. That's not impressive from afar, but a 6-1 record is nothing to shake your head at.


5. Minnesota Vikings -- They swapped spots with the Giants following their bye and get set to take on the Cardinals on Sunday.


6. Dallas Cowboys -- The Cowboys jump a couple of spots with the 49ers losing a second game in a row and the Ravens barely beating the Browns. Dallas' win over the Lions wasn't as definitive as the 24-6 score indicates, but it impressed since the offense didn't quite click.

.

7. Baltimore Ravens -- After falling to the Giants, they bounced back with a close win over the Browns to stay at No. 7.


8. Cincinnati Bengals -- I had to decide between the Bengals and (gasp!) the Jets. I went with Cincy because of their plus-41 score differential and the fact that Joe Burrow is on some kind of roll.

Sour Rankings


25. Carolina Panthers -- A big win over the Buccaneers has them shoot out of the bottom of the league.


26. Denver Broncos -- I've got to get them in these Sour Rankings after the Russell Wilson experiment has gone so poorly, losing four straight.


27. Chicago Bears -- Last week I said I thought they were better than their position. They beat the Patriots this week to move out of 31st.


28. Las Vegas Raiders -- They topped the Texans by a good margin and Josh Jacobs is killing it.


29. Pittsburgh Steelers -- Falling to the Dolphins after beating the Bucs has them down two spots from last week.


30. Cleveland Browns -- They're 2-5 and enter the Sour Rankings for the first time. I've been remiss. Consider this a much-needed market correction.


31. Houston Texans -- A place in the penultimate spot is theirs after losing to the 2-4 Raiders by 18.


32. Detroit Lions -- They supposedly hit "rock bottom" after getting shut out by the Patriots in Week 6, and an extra week to prepare didn't help them against the Cowboys in Week 7.
