Nfl Tickets - Week 7 Power Rankings

in Season
While players' extra-curricular habits seem to be the talk of the league going into Week 7 of the NFL's regular season (Pat McAfee, we're looking at you), there has also been an uproar concerning the midseason power rankings. Last year's dominant teams have mostly been forgotten as new powerhouses emerge, and here is a list of the top 10 teams in the league going into Week 7 play.

1. New York Jets. Boasting the best record in the NFL after Week 6, the 5-1 Jets have earned their place at the top. Darrelle Revis played through injury and Mark Sanchez kept his calm in the Jets' Week 6 matchup against the Broncos, and they head into a bye week as the top dogs in the league.

2. Pittsburgh Steelers. It was no fluke the Steelers played very solid football even without Ben Roethlisberger at the helm, but now that he's back Pittsburgh looks tough on both sides of the ball. The Steelers are certainly the team to beat this year.

3. Indianapolis Colts. Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning, and that's reason enough for the Colts to make the Top 10 of the power rankings. Even with a number of injuries on the defense, the Colts still manage to win ball games and sell lots of NFL tickets while they're at it. We'll credit some of that to the Colts offense -- Pierre Garcon and that beautiful one-handed catch, anyone?

4. New England Patriots. The Patriots swapped Randy Moss for Deion Branch, and so far it looks like a good move in New England. Branch stepped up big in the Pats' Week 6 win over the Baltimore Ravens, further proving that it's never a good idea to count the Patriots out of contention.

5. Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Patriots on the road in Week 6, but Joe Flacco and Co. still deserve to be a Top Five team. Baltimore's 4-2 record is no testament to how good this team really is, and if they get their running game going any opponent is in trouble.

6. Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons fell to the Eagles in Week 6, but they've still put up more than a few convincing games so far this season. A big win over the Saints in Week 3 proved the Falcons have fight in them, but they'll really have to keep the momentum going to stay afloat.

7. Houston Texans. The Texans are shaping up to be the solid team they were hailed as early on in the season. Although their secondary leaves something to be desired, Matt Shaub and Co. have come up with some pretty huge wins this season, including a big one over the Indianapolis Colts.

8. Philadelphia Eagles. For a team still making quarterback changes, the Eagles are in very good shape. They've proved they can win with either Kevin Kolb or Michael Vick at the helm, and they come off a huge Week 6 victory against the Atlanta Falcons.

9. New Orleans Saints. The Saints certainly don't look like last year's undefeated team, but they are still ferocious on the football field. Sean Payton's Saints lost an embarrassing game against the Cardinals in Week 5, but they look to be back on track heading into the middle part of the season.

10. New York Giants. The 4-2 Giants are sneaking into the top part of the power rankings thanks to Eli Manning's covert but consistently solid throwing. The Giants have had some ups and downs already this season but have ultimately powered through with their offense, giving them some hope to get back to the top.
