Week 9 has come and gone. Here are our NFL power rankings heading into Week 10 of the season.

Rank Team Record  

1.

LW: 1

 (9-0)

The Chiefs defense is officially historic. Allowing 17 points or fewer in nine straight games is an NFL record.

2.

LW: 2

 (7-1)

Prayers to John Fox for a speedy recovery from heart surgery.

3.

LW: 6

 (7-2)

Tom Brady just embarrassed the Steelers' defense. Shane Vereen returns after the bye week, adding another weapon to the offensive arsenal.

4.

LW: 3

 (8-1)

Sleeping in Seattle? The Seahawks spotted lowly Tampa 21 points before rallying in overtime.

5.

LW: 5

 (6-2)

This team is getting healthy at the right time. When Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham return, it could be the most complete team in the NFL.

6.

LW: 4

 (6-2)

Down Darren Sproles and Marques Colston, the Saints couldn’t get enough offense against a stingy Jets defense in the Meadowlands.

7.

LW: 9

 (6-2)

It took a half, but Andrew Luck found a suitable replacement for Reggie Wayne in T.Y. Hilton (3 TD catches in a comeback win in Houston).

8.

LW: 8

 (6-3)

Just when you thing the Bengals are ready to make a jump in the NFL’s elite, they fall on their face. Geno Atkins (torn ACL) is a tremendous loss for the defense.

9.

LW: 15

 (5-3)

The Panthers have the best defense no one knows about, and the offense has scored 30 points or more in every game during the past four weeks – all wins.

10.

LW: 11

 (5-3)

Josh McCown looked right at home running the Bears offense. Jay Cutler (groin) can take his time returning from injury.

11.

LW: 12

 (5-3)

Huge matchup for the Lions after their bye week. They travel to Soldier field with the NFC North lead on the line.

12.

LW: 7

 (5-3)

Aaron Rodgers' greatness will be revealed when he sits out the next few weeks recovering from a broken collarbone.

13.

LW: 12

 (5-4)

Yes, Tony Romo lead a game-winning drive. But, to struggle with a 1-6 Vikings team is concerning.

14.

LW: 16

 (4-4)

Chris Johnson has a habit of waking up during the second half of the season. Sunday against St. Louis (130 yards, 2 td) continued his trend.

15.

LW: 18

 (5-4)

The Jets have alternated wins and losses all season long, but that will change this week, because the team is on bye.

16.

LW: 13

 (4-4)

The Chargers' curious play calling on 1st-and-goal late against Washington cost them a TD, and ultimately, the game.

17.

LW: 21

 (4-5)

The Browns' having four wins this season is a testament to how good their defense has become. Joe Haden is the best overall CB in the game.

18.

LW: 23

 (4-5)

What more can Nick Foles do to cement himself as the Eagles full-time starter?

19.

LW: 14

 (3-5)

If the panic button hasn’t been hit yet in Baltimore, it should be.

20.

LW: 17

 (4-4)

Attention Texans fans: RB Andre Ellington is very good. If you haven’t heard of him yet, you will by the end of the game this coming Sunday.

21.

LW: 19

 (4-4) This team is a circus right now. It’s hard to imagine the Dolphins performing well in the coming weeks.

22.

LW: 27

 (3-5)

The Redskins' balanced offensive attack is starting to pay dividends.

23.

LW: 26

 (3-6)

Give credit to the Bills for hanging around against the Chiefs, but in the end, Jeff Tuel is Jeff Tuel.

24.

LW: 20

 (3-5) The Raiders were embarrassed at home against the Eagles. How they rebound against the Giants will be a test of the team’s maturity.

25.

LW: 25

 (3-6)

Zac Stacy has been a rock for the Rams since Sam Bradford went down, but their inability to throw the ball cost them the game against Tennessee.

26.

LW: 22

 (2-6) They’re three games out of the NFC “Least” lead with winnable games at home (Oak, Rodgers-less GB). Just saying.

27.

LW: 24

 (2-6) Case Keenum and the offense racked up 483 yards of offense against the Colts, but couldn’t put any points on the board in the second half. Prayers to Gary Kubiak. Get well soon.

28.

LW: 28

 (2-6)

Surrendered 55 points to the Patriots is the worst performance in Steelers history. Yuck.

29.

LW: 29

 (2-6)

The Falcons haven’t shown any signs of fight this season. They’re the disappointment of the NFL.

30.

LW: 30

 (1-7)

Pick a QB, any QB.

31.

LW: 32

 (0-8) The highlight of the Bucs season will be going up 21-0 on the Seahawks. Too bad they eventually lost the game.

32.

LW: 31

 (0-8)

Justin Blackmon’s struggle with substance abuse is disheartening.
