NFL power rankings Week 9 news has a tie between the Seattle Seahawks and Kansas City Chiefs for No. 1. The power rankings punished the Seahawks for narrowly beating the St. Louis Rams in Week 8 (14-9) and rewarded the Chiefs for remaining undefeated (8-0) on the year.
Finishing out the top five teams, the Associated Press voters have the Denver Broncos at No. 3, the New Orleans Saints at No. 4, and then the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts tied for the No. 5 slot. That tie might frustrate a lot of Colts fans after they already beat the 49ers earlier in the season, suggesting that the team from Indianapolis is actually better this year.
Rounding out the top 10 (in order) are the Green Bay Packers, Cincinnati Bengals, New England Patriots, and Detroit Lions. The team making the biggest jump was the Oakland Raiders, as they went from No. 28 up to No. 18 with a victory. The Pittsburgh Steelers dropped the furthest, falling all the way to No. 27 after sitting at No. 19 last week. As for the bottom three teams, they remained the same, with the Minnesota Vikings at No. 30, followed by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and then the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The NFL power rankings Week 9 revelation of a tie for the top spot has already created a lot of debate, with the primary arguments being that the Kansas City Chiefs are 8-0 and the Seattle Seahawks are not only 7-1, but almost lost to the St. Louis Rams in Week 8.
