The Phinsider Week 7 NFL Power Rankings

Yep, the Packers are holding up the Power Rankings belt for yet another week.

Another week, and Green Bay still resides atop the Phinsider Power Rankings.  Nothing seems to be able to phase this team, and, by now, not even a loss will make them lose this position.

 We didn't get a guest power ranker this week, so it's just the four contributors ranking everyone.  However, if you would like a chance to rank the 32 teams for next week, all you have to do is leave a comment below.  I will then randomly select someone and send an email to them.  After that, all you have to do is send me your list of all 32 teams in your power ranking order.

This week, we did not see as dramatic of changes as some of the previous week.  Pittsburgh made the biggest jump, going from 10th last week to 5th this week.

Meanwhile, Washington fell from 16th to 22nd, a 6 position drop.

The by division break down is listed at the bottom of the power rankings.

Continue to look great on offense and terrible on defense. Perhaps that catches up to them this week against the Steelers. (TCP)

Niners come out of their bye with games against Cleveland and Washington. Did anyone have SF potentially sitting with a 7-1 record at season's midpoint? (Matty)

The defense appears to be getting warmed up, but offensive line problems could be the downfall of the Steelers this season. Ben Roethlisberger looks miserable right now. (kmb)

Back-to-back losses, no depth at running back, and now some injuries, too. Lions look like a fringe playoff team right now (kmb)

Only two good teams SD has played they've lost to. Next up are Chiefs, Packers, Raiders, and Bears. We'll learn a lot about this team over next month. (Matty)

This team needs Carson Palmer to get in sync with new team in a hurry before it's too late. (Matty)

The Bears are getting outstanding contributions from Jay Cutler and Matt Forte this season, but what's up with the second-half coaching missteps? (kmb)

Bengals

Andy Dalton and A.J. Green are the real deal, and so is the Bengals' defense. (kmb)

Still a young team, trying to figure it out. Hopefully Josh Freeman can figure out what color jersey he is wearing.(Mosul)

Will spend their off week trying to fix the run D before facing the Bills who will look to run all over the Jets.  (TCP)

I'm going to go with, they felt sorry for the Texans who have never made the playoffs.  Rolled over and died for them this week (Mosul)

Don't look now, but the Chiefs are on a roll with a big game at home on Monday night vs SD up next. (Matty)

After starting out hot injury's are starting to take its toll on this team with no set QB.  (TCP)

A great rookie QB is one thing, but when that's really your entire team, the speed of the game will finally takes its toll - and things could get ugly. (Mosul)

Stuck it to the Ravens on Monday night.  They should be a better team than they are, but they aren't that good. (Mosul)

Broncos

That sure was one hell of a 3 minute span for Denver last week. But next five games (DET, OAK, KC, NYJ, SD) will put an end to this Tebow-mania. (Matty)

Seahawks

When you hold a team to just two 50 yard field goals and still lose, it's hard to find any hope in the near future. (Matty)

Vikings

At least the Vikings now know Brian Robison can punt if anything happens to Chris Kluwe. (kmb)

After losing 62-7, Jeff Saturday admitted the Colts were outcoached.  Then got upset at SB Nation blog Stampede Blue for saying, Saturday admitted the Colts were outcoached.  Good thing that's all they have to worry about in Indy. (Mosul)
