NFL POWER RANKINGS: Where all 32 team stand going into Week 6
Heading into Week 6 of the NFL season, the two main takeaways are the same as they were before — it’s the Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs and then everybody else.
Yes, the New England Patriots have bounced back, and the New Orleans Saints have an elite offense, but so far, much of the league has failed to stand out in any significant way.
As we approach, mid-October, our view of the league only becomes clearer. Things can change, of course, but overall, we’re getting a feel for which teams are true contenders, which were pretenders, and well, some teams we always knew were not serious threats (sorry, Bills).
Check out where each NFL team stands heading into Week 6.
32. Oakland Raiders
Last week: 28th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Chargers, 26-10
Week 6 opponent: vs. Seattle Seahawks (in London)
One thing to know: When Jon Gruden signed a deal reportedly worth $100 million to coach the Raiders, it’s doubtful a 1-4 start was what the team had in mind. If only the team could find a reliable pass-rusher.
31. San Francisco 49ers
Last week: 25th
Week 5 result: Lost to the Cardinals, 28-18
Week 6 opponent: at Green Bay Packers
One thing to know: The 49ers granted the Cardinals their first win of the season, in part, because C.J. Beathard had two interceptions and was responsible for two of the team’s three fumbles. It’s tough to win a game while giving away so many possessions.
30. Arizona Cardinals
Last week: 32nd
Week 5 result: Beat the 49ers, 28-18
Week 6 opponent: at Minnesota Vikings
One thing to know: Josh Rosen got his first career win as a starter on Sunday, beginning what the Cardinals hope will be a long and fruitful career with the franchise. Still, the team has a long way to go before their seen as contenders.
