Top Ten Thursday; NFL Football

Following an insane week 5 of the NFL season, here is the Top 10 teams heading into week 6. Among this Top 10 there are a couple new faces being added.

10. Detroit Lions (3-2) Previous Rank: 7
Week 5: Lost to the Carolina Panthers 27-24
Week 6: New Orleans Saints
The defense looked rough the last 2 games against the pass but have continued to dominate against the run. Detroit will have to figure itself out against the pass when going up against the Saints

 

9. Seattle Seahawks (3-2) Previous Rank: 8
Week 5: Defeated the Los Angeles Rams 16-10
Week 6: Bye Week
The Seahawks are banged-up both at the receiver and running back positions. The Legion of Boom has been able to stand and force turnovers.

 

8. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-2) Previous Rank: 2
Week 5: Lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars 30-9
Week 6: Kansas City Chiefs
The defense has continued to do its part to help try and keep the games close. Offensively the team lacks power behind Antonio Brown and Le’Veon Bell. Big Ben is starting to lose his edge after throwing 5 interceptions in a game for the first time in his career.

 

7. Carolina Panthers (4-1) Previous Rank: N/A
Week 5: Defeated the Detroit Lions 27-24
Week 6: Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night
Cam has showed us that he is healthy and has continued to wow us after defeating both the New England Patriots and Detroit Lions.

 

6. Denver Broncos (3-1) Previous Rank: 6
Week 5: Bye Week
Week 6: New York Giants
The Broncos has continued to impress us defensively. Offensively their run game has looked better behind a healthy C.J. Anderson and if Trevor Siemian continues to play like he did during weeks 1-4, expect Denver to be a legit contender for the AFC.

 

5. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1) Previous Rank: 9
Week 5: Defeated the Arizona Cardinals 34-7
Week 6: Carolina Panthers on Thursday Night
Defensively the Eagles have weaknesses in the secondary but the front line has been able to get pressure on opposing QBs. Offensively the team has continued to impress behind 2nd year quarterback Carson Wentz along with receivers Nelson Agholor, Torrey Smith, and Alshon Jeffery.

 

4. New England Patriots (3-2) Previous Rank: 5
Week 5: Defeated Tampa Bay 19-14
Week 6: New York Jets
The defense was finally able to come together and make some key stops. Offensively the team as been able to grind behind receiver Brandin Cooks and Tom Brady.

 

3. Atlanta Falcons (3-1) Previous Rank: 3
Week 5: Bye Week
Week 6: Miami Dolphins
Offensively the bye week helped behind injuries to both Mohamad Sanu and Julio Jones. The long break also allowed QB Matt Ryan to figure out a way to get out of his recent slump.

 

2. Green Bay Packers (4-1) Previous Rank: 4
Week 5: Defeated the Dallas Cowboys 35-31
Week 6: Minnesota Vikings
Aaron Rodgers has looked great without his top 2 tackles in the line-up. Rodgers has thrown 6 touchdowns in the 4th quarter and 4 of those had come with the Packers trailing. Running back Aaron Jones helped provide a spark for the offensive as the defense has had some iffy moments.

 

1.Kansas City Chiefs (5-0) Previous Rank: 1
Week 5: Defeated Houston Texans 42-34
Week 6: Pittsburgh Steelers
The Chiefs offense currently leads the league in scoring and haven’t committed a turnover since the first snap of the season. Alex Smith still continues to impress as well as rookie running back Kareem Hunt.
