The RCS NFL Power Ranking Averages combine nine other sites' power rankings to make the most balanced and unbiased grade possible, and to offer the most accurate look at the state of the NFL on a weekly basis.
The Titans remain the consensus #1 team in the RCS NFL Power Ranking Averages. The top-10 remains largely unchanged from last week, as perhaps the NFL's elite have started to set themselves apart from the rest of the league. The Cardinals were the only team to fall out of the top-10, dropping from 8th to 13th. Taking their place was the Cowboys, who moved from 14th up to 9th.
The biggest riser this week was the Saints, who moved up from 20th to 14th with their win over the Chargers in London. The Cardinals, Jaguars, and Chargers each fell five spots from their Week 8 average.
Other movement of note: the Bears somehow managed to leap past the Packers in the rankings this week, despite neither team playing.
The NFC East answered any questions there may have been about its dominance this week, going 4-0 and placing all four teams in the top-10 (2nd, 4th, 8th, and 9th) for the first time since Week 5. The west remains in perpetual putridity, with the NFC West teams having a slightly worse overall average of 23.64 as compared to the AFC West's overall average of 23.36.
