2020 NFL Power Rankings Week 6

10/14/2020

Here at the ICT Zone, our power rankings are based on a very simple philosophy. "To be the man you gotta beat the man", if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of results from prior weeks.

Last week, the Kansas City Chiefs were our best team in the league but that changed with the loss to the Raiders. The Raiders move to first and are early candidates for surprising team of the season.

It was hard to see Dak Prescott go down like that, but if anyone can make a strong return, its him.


1. Las Vegas Raiders +7

(3-2)

Yeah, I need to apologize for my comments last week.

2. Baltimore Ravens

(4-1)

Ehh, this team doesn't feel that special.

3. Seattle Seahawks 

(5-0)

Russell Wilson is an anomaly, how can he be so corny, yet so dominant?

4. New England Patriots

(2-2)

Weird to see the Patriots at .500

5. Pittsburgh Steelers

(4-0)

Still undefeated I see.

6. New Orleans Saints

(3-2)

They might be winning now but it feels like a rebuild is imminent.

7. Tennessee Titans +3

(4-0)

Ryan Tannehill has never been as bad as advertised.

8. Kansas City Chiefs -7

(4-1)

Well there goes 16 and 0.

9. Green Bay Packers

(4-0)

Aaron Rodgers still has a point to prove.

10. Buffalo Bills -3

(4-1)

Some say Josh Norman is still flying across the turf in Tennessee.

11. Detroit Lions

(1-3)

They needed that break.

12. Cleveland Browns +1

(4-1)

Okay mhmm, so the Cleveland Browns are really good.

13. Indianapolis Colts -1

(3-2)

9 and 7, calling it now.

14. Carolina Panthers

(3-2)

Winning record and they get Christian McCaffrey back soon.

15. Los Angeles Rams

(4-1)

Don't be fooled by the record, they're just dominating the NFC East.

16. Miami Dolphins

(2-3)

Brian Flores is a really good coach.

17. Chicago Bears +6

(4-1)

Nick Foles is Lex Luther to Tom Brady's Superman.

18. Dallas Cowboys

(2-3)

This column is dedicated to Dak Prescott, his mental health, and his eventual return to greatness.

19. Washington

(1-4)

Good to see Alex Smith survive it all.

20. Philadelphia Eagles

(1-3-1)

This team is just good enough to hide how bad they really are.

21. Arizona Cardinals

(3-2)

Another week, another interception for Murray, making it 7 games out of the last 9.

22. Denver Broncos

(1-3)

They also needed a week off.

23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -6

(3-2)

This team just really isn't that good.

24. Minnesota Vikings

(1-4)

To be fair, Cousins played relatively well this week.

25. Cincinnati Bengals

(1-3-1)

First real welcome to the NFL game for Burrow.

26. New York Jets

(0-5)

It's criminal to make them play all 16 games, at least Le'Veon got paid.

27. San Francisco 49ers

(2-3)

Mhmmm yeah, benching your Super Bowl quarterback is not a good look.

28. New York Giants

(0-5)

They actually looked like an NFL team at moments this week.

29. Los Angeles Chargers

(1-4)

Signing my official release form for the Justin Herbert bandwagon.

30. Atlanta Falcons

(0-5)

They'll get a win, only a matter of time.

31. Houston Texans

(1-4)

Deshaun got his money, so we can all feel good about that.

32. Jacksonville Jaguars

(1-4)

I always forget they played, every week.

The last 24 hours in football have been a whirlwind of outcry, complaints, memes, jokes, vibes, and protests about the state of the sport in the aftermath of the announcement of the European Super League. Unfortunately, at the root of this movement is a whole lot of misinformation that make the league seem far worse than it actually is.

Remember the saying, Defense Wins Championships. It's a cliche for a reason. Over the last ten years, every team that has won the Larry O'Brien Trophy has ranked near the top 5 in net defensive rating. While it has improved over the course of the season, the Brooklyn Nets rank 24th with a rating of 113. In contrast, the 76ers...

The last few decades of women's college basketball were synonymous with the dominance the top programs showed. It was not uncommon to see the four #1 seeds make the final four. But we are headed for a new era that is going to flip the script altogether. A new era of parity, an era where the talent is spread evenly across the country. ...
