NFL Power Rankings: Bengals Jump Ravens Into Top-Ten

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Bengals won't play the Ravens until November, but in the game of power rankings, they jumped the Ravens in a weekend of good AFC North teams beating bad AFC North teams.

Happy Power Rankings day everyone.

Today we'll feature a handful of power rankings throughout the day but first we have to go with our mothership, SB Nation. Last week the Bengals ranked No. 11. A win against the Pittsburgh Steelers not only moved the Bengals back inside the top-ten, they jumped the Baltimore Ravens, who escaped with a win over the Cleveland Browns.

The top-five at SB Nation starts with the Denver Broncos, followed by (chronological) the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Houston Texans and the New England Patriots. And no, I wouldn't rank the Patriots No. 5, who are barely beating two of the worse teams in the NFL (Bills, Jets), while the Green Bay Packers, ranked No. 6, destroyed the Washington Redskins but losing an exciting weekend opener in San Francisco.

That being said, the Cleveland Browns and Jacksonville Jaguars bring up the power rankings rear.
