NFL Week Six Power Rankings: Backing Themselves Into The Middle of the Pack

New, comments

All it takes is one bad loss and the Bengals are back to the middle of the pack. That's the fragile world of NFL power rankings.

Ouch. Cincinnati's 17-13 loss generated substantially more questions on why the Bengals lost at home to a 1-3 team than how the rising Dolphins beat a 3-1 team tied for the lead in the AFC North during this week's power rankings. Of the rankings we monitor weekly the average ranking is No. 14, roughly a three-position drop from last week.
