Baltimore Ravens drop in latest power rankings after loss to Patriots
16. New England Patriots, 4-5 (22)
They made a pretty big jump because it looks like we know who this team is at this point — a physical, run-first team that lessens the possessions per game and waits for other teams to make a mistake. We’ve seen this formula work before. It could here. As for now… mediocre season.
15. Cleveland Browns, 6-3 (15)
If there was an “equator” for these power rankings, it would comfortably exist between numbers 16 and 15. Cleveland is the start of the “good teams” this year, and that sounds strange to say out loud. Go ahead. Do it. See what I mean? Strange, man.
14. Tennessee Titans, 6-3 (9)
The Titans can shoot right back up the rankings with a win over the Ravens this week, and who would that surprise? They’ve been in a little funk lately, and that loss to the Colts wasn’t a great look for this team. They can beat anyone on this list. Anyone.
13. Los Angeles Rams, 6-3 (14)
Their defense is much improved to this point, and the offense is doing enough to win. Taking down the Seahawks is a good win for this team, and puts them in solid position to chase down a playoff spot. The Rams are back, and that’s fun.
