In the latest NFL Power Rankings, the Eagles maintained their top spot while the Bills and Chiefs switched positions. Two other NFC East teams land in the top ten, which means for the first time in what feels like forever, three NFC East squads rank in the top ten overall. See below for updated NFL Power Rankings so you can continue making your bets against the NFL Betting Lines.
2022 NFL Power Rankings Betting Update After Week 5
2022-23 NFL Regular Season
- When: Sep. 8, 2022 – Jan. 8, 2023
NFL Power Rankings Heading Into Week 6
- Philadelphia Eagles 4-0 – The Eagles 20-17 road victory over Arizona proves they can win a game with their defense. Sunday night’s game versus Dallas is massive.
- Buffalo Bills 4-1 – The Bills throttled the Steelers. On Sunday, Buffalo travels to KC to take on their fiercest AFC rivals.
- Kansas City Chiefs 4-1 – The Chiefs ranked second last week. This week, they rank third because KC barely got past the rival Las Vegas Raiders.
- Dallas Cowboys 4-1 – Dallas has the best defense in the NFL. Jalen Hurts could struggle in Sunday night’s huge game.
- New York Giants 4-1 – Anybody who watched the Giants upset the Packers in London know NYG is legit. So, yes, they deserve this ranking.
- Minnesota Vikings 4-1 – Minnesota is 4-1 SU and 1-4 ATS. The Vikings’ offense will keep them in games, but the defense needs some work. How else to explain giving up 22 points to offense-less Chicago?
- San Francisco 49ers 3-2 – The 49ers are playing like the NFC’s top squad. Deebo, Jimmy G. and the rest of the Niners face a test versus tough Atlanta on the road on Sunday.
- Baltimore Ravens 3-2 – In Justin Tucker the Ravens trust. Tuck hit a last second field goal to secure a Baltimore win over the Bengals in week 5.
- Los Angeles Chargers 3-2 – The Chargers went into Cleveland and proceeded to beat the Browns as a road dog. The Bolts land back into the top ten because the team appears to have found its feet.
- Green Bay Packers 3-2 – It’s impossible not to drop the Packers out of the top ten after Green Bay allowed the Giants to rally for the victory. Green Bay doesn’t seem to have it this season.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-2 – The Buccaneers moved a game over .500 after holding off the Atlanta Falcons. Tampa should have an easier time this Sunday versus no-offense Pittsburgh.
- Tennessee Titans 3-2 – And just like that, the Titans are atop the AFC South. The Titans should win their next two games against the Colts in NFL Week 7 and versus the Texans a week later.
- New York Jets 3-2 – It’s easy to argue that Miami had to play the Jets with a third string QB and that’s why NYJ won. But neither Tua nor Teddy play defense and the Jets scored 41 points.
- Miami Dolphins 3-2 – Miami was down to their third string quarterback versus the Jets after the Fins pulled Teddy Bridgewater and placed him in the concussion protocol.
- Cincinnati Bengals 2-3 – Of the 2-3 teams, Cincinnati is the best. The Bengals had a chance to upset the Ravens on the road. But the defense couldn’t hold off Baltimore.
- New England Patriots 2-3 – The Patriots played the lowly Lions, but, wow, what a defensive performance. Detroit can score and Bill Belichick’s D held the Lions to zero points.
- Los Angeles Rams 2-3 – The Rams’ offense has 12 turnovers already. LAR should secure a win on Sunday because the Rams battle the horrible Carolina Panthers.
- Indianapolis Colts 2-2-1 – The Colts kept at it last Thursday night, which is why Indianapolis is now at .500. The offense remains a mess, but the defense has started to play well.
- Arizona Cardinals 2-3 – Arizona is trying as hard as it can to maintain a decent record so that when DeAndre Hopkins returns, they’ll be ready. The Valley came up just short versus the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles.
- Jacksonville Jaguars 2-3 – Losing to Houston, well, there’s no excuse. On the bright side, the Jags’ defense played great again. Jacksonville will bounce back.
- New Orleans Saints 2-3 – The Saints finally got a huge offensive output. New Orleans scored 39 points in a win over the Seahawks. A victory against the Bengals at home on Sunday brings the Saints back to .500.
- Atlanta Falcons 2-3 – No team tries as hard as the ATL. The Falcons had a shot against the Buccaneers. It didn’t work out.
- Las Vegas Raiders 1-4 – Vegas couldn’t get it done against he rival Chiefs. But a 30-29 loss in Kansas City should have given the Raiders some confidence.
- Seattle Seahawks 2-3 – Geno Smith and the Seahawks’ offense is legit. Scoring 32 against the Saints’ D isn’t easy.
- Chicago Bears 2-3 – Chicago doesn’t have the roster to hang with the better teams in the league, which means the Bears should notch their third win after beating Washington on Thursday night.
- Cleveland Browns 2-3 – The Browns have talent, but they don’t have a legit QB1, which is the reason they blow home games versus teams like the Bolts.
- Houston Texans 1-3-1 – Beating a solid club like Jacksonville on the road is a huge accomplishment for this team. Houston has some ability.
- Pittsburgh Steelers 1-4 – The Steelers’ offense had no shot of keeping up with Josh Allen and the Bills’ D. On the positive, rookie QB Kenny Pickett threw for 327 yards.
- Denver Broncos 2-3 – The Broncos lost left tackle Garrett Bolles for the season. Russell Wilson is playing hurt. Nathaniel Hackett isn’t making the right play calls. The Broncos are a disaster.
- Detroit Lions 1-4 – The Lions offense had been humming along but then it ran into a Belichick coached D. Detroit doesn’t really play defense, which is why the Pats won 29-0.
- Washington Commanders 1-4 – Washington plays with zero urgency. Now the head coach and the starting quarterback don’t appear copasetic.
- Carolina Panthers 1-4 – Baker is hurt, which means Sam Darnold will start. It’s not ideal a few days after firing your head coach.
