RCS NFL Power Ranking Averages

week%204.jpg.jpgThe RCS NFL Power Ranking Averages combine eight* 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 NY Giants remain the No. 1 team in the RCS NFL Power Ranking Averages this week. Much of the top ten stayed the same this week, with only the Steelers falling out, dropping from 7th all the way down to 15th.

While the Steelers took the biggest tumble down the rankings, the team that beat them this past weekend, the Bengals, climbed up the most spots, rising from 20th to 11th.

Things are very close in the middle of the rankings as the teams ranked from 11th to 17th differ little in their actual RCS Ranking Average. The Packers and Bengals, tied at 11th, have an RCS Average of 13; while the Bears, down at 17th, have only a slightly worse RCS Average of 14.57.

At the bottom of the rankings this week, the Browns overtake the Rams for dead last.

Division Overall average rankings:

1. NFC East - 12.25
2. AFC East - 14.29
3. AFC North - 15.14
4. NFC North - 15.32
5. AFC South - 16.46
