Every week, All Panthers publisher Schuyler Callihan will release a fresh set of NFC Power Rankings. Here is how he views the conference after ten weeks of play.
This week's rankings (last week's rank if changed)
16. Carolina Panthers
No surprise with the Panthers getting blown out by the Cowboys, but man, they let that game get out of hand on their own.
15. Arizona Cardinals (14)
Arizona gave Houston a run for their money, but fell short.
14. Chicago Bears (13)
How in the world do the Bears blow a two-score lead that late in the game? That's the type of thing that can get a coach on a struggling team fired.
13. New York Giants (15)
The Giants opened up the playbook this week for Tommy DeVito and it results in a win over the Commanders. Stunning.
12. Washington Commanders (9)
This team makes no sense. They give the Eagles two tough games, give the Seahawks a scare on the road, but lose to New York? Make it make sense.
11. Green Bay Packers
Jordan Love has arguably the best game of his career and outduels Justin Herbert. Interesting.
10. Atlanta Falcons
9. Los Angeles Rams (12)
The Rams get the season sweep of Seattle, but Geno Smith going down certainly had a part in that.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa has lost five of its last six. They need to get back in the win column soon to hang around in the NFC South.
7. New Orleans Saints
6. Minnesota Vikings
The red-hot Vikings fall in the final minute to a resurgent Denver Broncos teams. Don't give up on this team, though. They've got a favorable schedule the next two weeks.
5. Seahawks (3)
If Geno Smith gets back to 100%, this team can be as dangerous as anyone come playoff time.
4. 49ers (5)
Brock Purdy maybe with the QB performance of the week in a convincing 27-14 win over Tampa. Purdy goes 21/25 for 333 yards and three touchdowns.
3. Cowboys (4)
Another weak opponent, another blowout for Dallas.
2. Detroit Lions
Good teams just find a way to win games and this Detroit team just keeps finding ways.
1. Philadelphia Eagles
Signature win for the Eagles over the Chiefs on Monday night. They continue to separate themselves from the rest of the pack in the NFC.
