NFL Power Rankings after Aaron Rodgers owns Bears

power rankings

Week two of Bill Lazor calling plays for the Chicago Bears offense with Justin Fields as the starter. And two straight wins.

So where do all 32 teams rank heading into Week 6?

1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 5-1 (LW: 1)

Tom Brady leads the league in passing, but he'll face a tougher challenge against the Bears' defense Sunday in Tampa.

2. Arizona Cardinals, 6-0 (LW: 3)

It's a long season -- remember, the Steelers started 11-0 last year -- but there's not much you can criticize the Cardinals for right now.

3. Los Angeles Rams, 5-1 (LW: 4)

The Rams scored 28 points in the second quarter against the Giants. That will work.

4. Baltimore Ravens, 5-1 (LW: 7)

Quite a statement by the Ravens, who demolished one of the hottest teams in the league -- the Chargers -- 34-6.

5. Dallas Cowboys, 5-1 (LW: 6)

That game in New England was one the Cowboys used to lose. It wasn't pretty, but they found a way to win.

6. Green Bay Packers, 5-1 (LW: 9)

The Packers still don't look like a true Super Bowl contender, but they could get stronger as the season goes along as key players return from injury. 

7. Buffalo Bills, 4-2 (LW: 2)

I didn't hate the decision by Sean McDermott to go for the win on fourth down instead of playing for overtime. The Titans just made a better play. 

8. Los Angeles Chargers, 4-2 (LW: 5)

A bit of a reality check for the Chargers in Baltimore, but this is a good team that will bounce back.

9. Kansas City Chiefs, 3-3 (LW: 10)

Patrick Mahomes might have thrown the worst interception of his career in Washington, but he also made some big plays to win. 

10. Tennessee Titans, 4-2 (LW: 12)

It's probably time to stop sleeping on the Titans. They had a bad loss against the Jets, but still appear to be a very good team.

 

11. Cleveland Browns, 3-3 (LW: 8)

The Browns are really banged up on offense with Baker Mayfield, Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt all dealing with injuries. 

12. New Orleans Saints, 3-2 (LW: 11)

Coming off the bye, the Saints need to get better quarterback play the rest of the way -- but that's hardly surprising when you lose a Hall of Famer.

13. Cincinnati Bengals, 3-2 (LW: 16)

Are the Bengals good? They played the Packers tough and crushed the Lions -- as they should have.

14. Pittsburgh Steelers, 3-3 (LW: 17)

The Steelers head to the bye week feeling pretty good about themselves after holding off the Seahawks in overtime. 

15. San Francisco 49ers, 2-3 (LW: 15)

The 49ers are in a similar place at QB as the Bears, weighing rookie struggles vs limited veteran ability. The two teams will meet in Chicago in two weeks.

16. Seattle Seahawks, 2-4 (LW: 13)

Bad time for Russell Wilson to miss the first games of his entire career as the Seahawks go from Sunday Night Football to Monday Night Football this week. It's a must-win against the Saints. 

17. Chicago Bears, 3-3 (LW: 14)

The Bears managed to beat Tom Brady and the Bucs last year, but it's hard to see that happening again this week. 

18. Las Vegas Raiders, 4-2 (LW: 25)

Credit the Raiders for a big-time response after losing to the Bears and losing their head coach. That was a big win in Denver. 

19. Minnesota Vikings, 3-3 (LW: 23)

The Vikings aren't a bad team. After nearly falling to 1-4 against the Lions, they're back to .500 and currently hold a playoff spot. 

20. Denver Broncos, 3-3 (LW: 18)

Vic Fangio must be feeling the heat as the Broncos are now on a three-game losing streak.  

21. Indianapolis Colts, 2-4 (LW: 26)

The Colts are hard to figure out, but they did exactly what they should have done against the Texans. Jonathan Taylor continues to impress. 

22. New England Patriots, 2-4 (LW: 19)

The Patriots will play every team tough, but the reality is they aren't that good. 

23. Philadelphia Eagles, 2-4 (LW: 20)

Jalen Hurts must get better, but he still finds a way to put up big fantasy football numbers every week.

24. Carolina Panthers, 3-2 (LW: 24)

The Panthers join the Broncos as 3-0 teams that are now 3-3.

25. Washington Football Team, 2-4 (LW: 22)

The Football Team was just too overmatched against Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs. 

26. Atlanta Falcons, 2-3 (LW: 24)

Coming off the bye, the Falcons have a very winnable game in Miami this week and could get back to .500.

27. Jacksonville Jaguars, 1-5 (LW: 32)

The London Jaguars got it done at Tottenham Stadium as Urban Meyer got his first win. 

28. New York Giants, 1-5 (LW: 28)

The Giants had no chance against the Rams Sunday, but they will have a chance against Carolina this week. 

29. Miami Dolphins, 1-5 (LW: 27)

The Dolphins might be the biggest disappointment in the NFL right now.

30. New York Jets, 1-4 (LW: 29

It will be Zach Wilson vs Mac Jones in Foxboro this week. 

31. Detroit Lions, 0-6 (LW: 30)

Dan Campbell slipped up and threw his quarterback under the bus. But he's not wrong about Jared Goff. 

32. Houston Texans, 1-5 (LW: 31)

Is it 2022, yet?
