    Default NFL Power Rankings.....A little exercise

    My son and a friend and I did this last year and it proved to be fun. Besides, what do we have to do until Sunday at 1:00 anyway?

    Here's the excercise, Below is the power rankings, at present, according to Fox Sports. Pick the four most glaring errors to be proven out at the end of the season and whether that team will be higher or lower at the end of the season and we will watch who has prognosticated best!

    Here's how the scoring will work, the total number of positions your four teams move (in the direction you predicted) is added together and whoever has the highest score wins. So pick the four teams you believe will move the most.

    The final rankings on NFL.com, at the end of the season, will be used.

    Here's mine:
    The Bengals, Jets, and Cowboys will all move down and the 49ers will move up.




    1. Saints
    2. Colts
    3. Bengals
    4. Jets
    5. Cowboys
    6. Packers
    7. Steelers
    8. Vikings
    9. Chargers
    10. Ravens
    11. Eagles
    12. Patriots
    13. Giants
    14. Texans
    15. Falcons
    16. Titans
    17. 49ers
    18. Dolphins
    19. Cardinals
    20. Bears
    21. Redskins
    22. Raiders
    23. Broncos
    24. Lions
    25. Panthers
    26. Browns
    27. Chiefs
    28. Jaguars
    29. Buccaneers
    30. Bills
    31. Seahawks
    32. Rams

    The Steelers have moved up considerably since the preseason ranking. I think they had them right around the middle of the pack. I wonder what changed? Maybe they realized Holmes might not be a huge loss. Still pretty healthy too.

    Yeah, rather than a changing your picks every week just pick what you think the four biggest movers will be for the season.. I realize it's just one power ranking, power ranking don't mean ****, and all kinds of things can enter in to the end result. It's just an exercise to pass the time till Sunday.

    Here is a look at last years overall regular season ranking as per the NFL.com site. This is what we will use for the end of season ranking and while it can be a bit skewed it's the reference of choice for this exercise.
