USA TODAY Sports

Tuesday morning means it's time for the Phinsider's NFL Power Rankings. Here's a look at how the 32 NFL teams rank heading into Week 10. Don't have a free SB Nation account? Sign up here.

All 32 NFL teams have now played at least half their 2013 schedule, with the final Week 9 game coming last night as Chicago beat Green Bay on Monday Night Football. With the week over, we now move on to Week 10, starting with our NFL Power Rankings.

As always, feel free to discuss my rankings in the comments and tell me who is too high or too low.

Team LW Change Week 9 Result Remarks
1 Kc_tiny_medium
Chiefs
(9-0)
1 -- W, 23-13 at Buffalo 9-0 and still rolling. It's not always pretty, but they are the first team guaranteed to have a winning record this year.
2 Sea_tiny_medium
Seahawks
(8-1)
2 -- W, 27-24 OT vs Tampa Bay That was an impressive comeback, but how Seattle had to come back against Tampa Bay, in Seattle, I don't know.
3 Den_tiny_medium
Broncos
(7-1)
3 -- BYE When you have one loss on the year, and you actually lose ground on the division leaders during your bye week, it's a strange year.
4 Ind_tiny_medium
Colts
(6-2)
5 +1 W, 27-24 at Houston Indianapolis apparently decided they wanted to play in the second half, so they did and they won.
5 Ne_tiny_medium
Patriots
(7-2)
9 +4 W, 55-31 vs Pittsburgh Talk about flipping a switch. New England put up 28 fourth quarter points to blow out Pittsburgh in a hame that was tied with 2:40 to go in the third.
6 Sf_tiny_medium
49ers
(6-2)
7 +1 BYE Come out of the bye to face red hot Carolina then at New Orleans. That's rough.
7 Saints_tiny_medium
Saints
(6-2)
6 -1 L, 26-20 at New York (A) New Orleans is clearly not the same on the road as they are in the Sueprdome.
8 Chi_tiny_medium
Bears
(5-3)
10 +2 W, 27-20 at Green Bay Chicago's backup QB is greater than Green Bay's backup QB.
9 Gb_tiny_medium
Packers
(5-3)
4 -5 L, 27-20 vs Chicago The future of the Green Bay season will be determined by the left shoulder of Aaron Rodgers.
10 Det_tiny_medium
Lions
(5-3)
11 +1 BYE What better bye week than to sit at home and move into a tie for the division lead?
11 Cin_tiny_medium
Bengals
(6-3)
8 -3 L, 22-20 OT at Miami Good thing Andy Dalton's October Offensive Player of the Month did not actually include the October 31 game.
12 Car_tiny_medium
Panthers
(5-3)
16 +4 W, 34-10 vs Atlanta Carolina has won four straight, is just a game behind New Orleans, and no one seems to know it.
13 Dal_tiny_medium
Cowboys
(5-3)
15 +2 W, 27-23 vs Minnesota Great comeback to win, but the Cowboys should not have even been in that position.
14 Nyj_tiny_medium
Jets
(5-4)
17 +3 W, 26-20 vs New Orleans New York has been alternating wins and losses each week. This week was a win, but, unfortunately, next week is the bye.
15 Cle_tiny_medium
Browns
(4-5)
18 +3 W, 24-18 vs Baltimore Davone Bess did this and Cleveland won:
Bess_medium
16 Mia_tiny_medium
Dolphins
(4-4)
19 +3 W, 22-20 OT vs Cincinnati A walk off safety in overtime, for just the third time in NFL history, and it's not the focus around Miami this week. Ouch.
17 Bal_tiny_medium
Ravens
(3-5)
12 -5 L, 24-18 at Cleveland Other than maybe Dallas, no team has bounced up and down the rankings as much as Baltimore this season.
18 Phi_tiny_medium
Eagles
(4-5)
20 +2 W, 49-20 at Oakland Nick Foles threw for seven touchdown passes. I'll give you a second to try to comprehend that sentence.
19 Ten_tiny_medium
Titans
(4-4)
21 +2 W, 28-21 at St. Louis Hey, look at that. Someone found Chris Johnson.
20 Atl_tiny_medium
Falcons
(2-6)
13 -7 L, 34-10 at Carolina I still don't understand why Atlanta is this bad.
21 Sd_tiny_medium
Chargers
(4-4)
14 -7 L, 30-24 OT at Washington The NFL must not like the Chargers or something. This was their fourth game out of eight to be in the Eastern or Central timezones. That's rough for a west coast team.
22 Was_tiny_medium
Redskins
(3-5)
29 +7 W, 30-24 OT vs San Diego As bad as this season has been, Washington is still in NFC East hunt some how.
23 Buf_tiny_medium
Bills
(3-6)
23 -- L, 23-13 vs Kansas City How bad is Matt Flynn when he gets released by a team that is using practice squad quarterbacks over him?
24 Oak_tiny_medium
Raiders
(3-5)
22 -2 L, 49-20 vs Philadelphia When your team is carried by the defense, and that defense allows an NFL record tying seven touchdown passes, your team has to reassess.
25 Ari_tiny_medium
Cardinals
(4-4)
27 +2 BYE Arizona is just a game out of the Wildcard right now.
26 Nyg_tiny_medium
Giants
(2-6)
28 +2 BYE A bad bye week for a team trying to claw back into a division race, when every other division rival wins.
27 Stl_tiny_medium
Rams
(3-6)
25 -2 L, 28-21 vs Tennessee Remember a couple of weeks ago, when people were wondering if Sam Bradford had thrown his last pass for St. Louis? We're now seeing what happens without the former number one overall pick.
28 Hou_tiny_medium
Texans
(2-6)
26 -2 L, 27-24 vs Indianapolis After Head Coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the field at halftime, there was no way Houston could keep their heads in the game.
29 Pit_tiny_medium
Steelers
(2-6)
24 -5 L, 55-31 at New England Everything seemed to go wrong for Pittsburgh at the end of the game.
30 Tb_tiny_medium
Buccaneers
(0-8)
32 +2 L, 27-24 at Seattle A performance like that against Seattle earns a bump out of the bottom position.
31 Min_tiny_medium
Vikings
(1-7)
30 -1 L, 27-23 at Dallas Three quarters of the NFC North are 5-3. Minnesota isn't.
32 Jax_tiny_medium
Jaguars
(0-8)
31 -1 BYE Falling back into the bottom position during a bye week is bad, but it happened.
