As we head into Week 7 of the 2010 NFL season, the power rankings are really starting to shape up. That said, the amount of parity in the NFL currently has more than half the league dreaming of a Super Bowl championship. Here’s our Week 7 NFL power rankings:
1. New York Jets
At 5-1, the Jets have the best record in football. As long as Mark Sanchez keeps playing well, this team doesn’t have a glaring weakness.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
With Big Ben back and playing at a high level already, the Steelers look very good. Their defense is dominant and they remain a team no one wants to play.
3. New England Patriots
While their running game is iffy and their defense isn’t as good as it used to be, the Patriots have the experience and the know-how to win it all.
4. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts have two losses and a ton of injuries. That said, they still have Peyton Manning and a big-play defense that is at times a lethal combination.
5. New Orleans Saints
The defending Super Bowl champions have looked bad at times this season but if Drew Brees can get healthy and the defense can regroup, another Super Bowl run isn’t out of the question.
