Philadelphia and Buffalo continue to shine while the Giants have climbed their way into the top three. Yes, that’s right. The New York Football Giants are third on this week’s rankings. Check out the power rankings after a raucous NFL Week 6 so you can continue betting against the NFL Lines.
2022 NFL Power Rankings Betting Update After Week 6
2022-23 NFL Regular Season
- When: Sep. 8, 2022 – Jan. 8, 2023
NFL Power Rankings Heading Into Week 7
- Philadelphia Eagles 5-0 – The win over the Cowboys impresses because Philly got the W with their defense. The Eagles get a well deserved week off.
- Buffalo Bills 5-1 – Versus Kansas City, Josh Allen and Buffalo wouldn’t be denied. No doubt, the Bills are the AFC’s best squad.
- New York Giants 5-1 – The Giants beat the Baltimore Ravens, which means the G-Men have won 2 straight over Green Bay and Baltimore, a couple of teams most handicappers expected were going to spank NYG.
- Kansas City Chiefs 4-2 – KC is, and there’s no doubt, the second best team in the AFC. The loss to Buffalo in week 6 can be squarely placed on Patrick Mahomes. Mahomes threw the pick on Kansas City’s final drive. When you hold Allen and the Bills to 24 points, you’re supposed to win.
- Minnesota Vikings 5-1 – The Vikings climb into the top five after an excellent 24-16 win over the Miami Dolphins. Any time Minny can win with their defense, it’s impressive.
- Dallas Cowboys 4-2 – If not for Cooper Rush’s 3 picks, who knows? Dallas may have upset the Eagles on the money line. But Coop did throw the 3 interceptions. So Dallas falls in our rankings.
- Los Angeles Chargers 4-2 – The Bolts eked out a win against the rival Broncos in a Monday night snorer. Although the Chargers won, they didn’t look good. LAC takes on a sneaky Seattle squad on Sunday.
- San Francisco 49ers 3-3 – Losing to Atlanta used to mean an automatic trip outside of the top ten. The 2022 Atlanta Falcons are a good team, though. So San Francisco drops, but they don’t drop too far.
- Baltimore Ravens 3-3 – Don’t let the -5.5 spread line fool you. Baltimore was an underlay against a Giants squad that nobody took seriously. So the Ravens had a chance to beat one of the NFC’s best on the road, which means they deserve a top ten ranking.
- New York Jets 4-2 – After a scintillating road win against the Green Bay Packers in Lambeau, the New York Jets return to the top ten for the first time in 40 years. Okay. We’re not sure the last time the Jets were good. But it’s been a while.
- Green Bay Packers 3-3 – Two straight losses send the Green Bay Packers out of the top ten. The best thing we can write is that the Pack have lost to a couple of good teams, NYG and NYJ.
- Cincinnati Bengals 3-3 – The Bengals scored a quality win over the Saints in New Orleans. Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase connected on a 60-yard TD that pretty much ended the game. Cincinnati could be on the cusp of a surge.
- New England Patriots 3-3 – In their last two games, New England has beaten the Lions and the Browns by a combined 67-15. The Patriots will look to keep it going versus another overmatched team in Chicago on Monday night.
- Atlanta Falcons 3-3 – Right now, the Falcons are the NFC South’s best team. The ATL smashed the 49ers 28-14. Another win puts the Southern Birds into the top ten.
- Indianapolis Colts 3-2-1 – Indianapolis rallied to beat a solid Jacksonville squad. For all of their early season problems, Indy can take over first place in the AFC South with a win over the rival Titans on Sunday.
- Tennessee Titans 3-2 – We’d rank the Titans ahead of the Colts, but Tennessee must prove they can beat Indy on the road. Sunday’s Colts versus Titans tilt should be great.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3 – That wasn’t a good look watching Terrific Tom berating his teammates. Tampa is a disaster right now. The Bucs are lucky to be at .500.
- Los Angeles Rams 3-3 – The defending champions beat a terrible team at home. That doesn’t impress. Sean McVay and his staff have work to due this week during the Rams’ bye.
- Miami Dolphins 3-3 – Head coach Mike McDaniel said Tua will start in Sunday’s prime time matchup against the Steelers. Tagovailoa should ensure a Dolphins’ win and cover.
- Seattle Seahawks 3-3 – Seattle beat the Cardinals 19-9, which means the Seahawks won a game with their defense. If Seattle’s D has caught up to their offense, the Seahawks, who are tied for first place in the NFC West, become a team to watch.
- Arizona Cardinals 2-4 – The Cardinals lost but good times could be on the horizon. Top wideout DeAndre Hopkins returns from a suspension this week.
- Jacksonville Jaguars 2-4 – Jacksonville dropped their third straight in a tough loss to the rival Colts. The Jaguars can turn things around but to do so, they must beat the 5-1 Giants.
- New Orleans Saints 2-4 – The Saints were ahead for most of the contest versus the Bengals, and then, like magic, the beleaguered Aints gave up a 60-yard TD from Burrow to Chase.
- Las Vegas Raiders 1-4 – Las Vegas had the week off. If the Raiders come back and start playing every game like the way they played against the Chiefs in week 5, LV will jump forward in the rankings.
- Pittsburgh Steelers 2-4 – Beating Tampa was a huge accomplishment for this team. But it wasn’t as big of an accomplishment in the grand scheme. TB doesn’t have it this season and the Steelers were at home.
- Denver Broncos 2-4 – It’s now time to declare Denver’s offense a disaster. Sure, we can blame offensive line injuries. Or we can accept the truth. The Broncos have a terrible offense.
- Cleveland Browns 2-4 – The Browns drop into the bottom five because they showed nothing, zilch, against the Patriots. Browns fans should blame the coaching staff for the lack of creativity on offense and a defense that made Billy Zappe look like Tom Brady.
- Washington Commanders 2-4 – The Commanders beat Chicago, which is why they’re ahead of the Bears. But we won’t give D.C. too much credit. Now, if Tyler Heinicke proves he’s the real quarterback of this team and Washington beats the Packers on Sunday, sure, we’d move them into the top twenty five.
- Chicago Bears 2-4 – Expect the Bears to fall to 2-6 after their next couple of games. Chicago’s terrible offense faces the great Patriots’ defense in week 7 and the excellent Cowboys’ D in NFL Week 8.
- Houston Texans 1-3-1 – The Texans got the week off, which Houston deserves. No team plays with as much heart as the Texans, which is why they rank ahead of Detroit and Carolina.
- Detroit Lions 1-4 – Like Houston, Detroit got the week off. The difference is that the Lions showed nothing in an 0-29 loss to the Patriots in week 5.
- Carolina Panthers 1-5 – The Panthers are the worst team in the NFL. Carolina traded wide receiver Robbie Anderson less than a week after ditching Matt Rhule. The Panthers are a mess.
