Pro Football Weekly’s Power Rankings are updated every Tuesday during the NFL’s regular season and are intended to rank teams based on their talent and performance to date.
Rankings will change each week due to personnel changes, injuries and performance on the field, and a team’s ranking in any given week has no impact on where they might rank in weeks to come. Rankings will fluctuate a great deal more the first few weeks of the season as teams seek their levels and schedules balance out.
These are PFW’s Power Rankings following Week 6 as teams head into the seventh weekend of regular season games.
1. Chiefs: 5-1
Were due to lose, still don’t see who’s better
2. Patriots: 4-2
Not themselves but winning again; pedigree
3. Eagles: 5-1
Beating everyone they play but K.C.
4. Steelers: 4-2
Chiefs win more like it, more to prove
5. Seahawks: 3-2
Only here because of defense
