Baltimore Ravens climbing up our latest Power Rankings
16. Indianapolis Colts, 3-2 (9)
There is no shame in losing to the Browns. Wow, read that line again. But it’s true. Cleveland is good. The Colts’ offense, however, is something that needs to be watched. It’s not good right now.
15. Carolina Panthers, 3-2 (15)
Beating the Falcons by a touchdown doesn’t really move the needle a lot, but it is impossible to see this team and not be impressed by Matt Rhule and his staff, and these young defenders.
14. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 3-2 (8)
This is probably a bigger drop than they deserve after losing the Bears, but, for this week at least, the Bears get to be one spot ahead. It’s one week, people. Give them that!
13. Chicago Bears, 4-1 (17)
Beating Tom Brady seems to be a tradition for Nick Foles, and his Bears did that this past week. They play great defense, and Foles is a safe play for the offense. They can hang around this season with that formula.
