Sky Sports' Neil Reynolds returns with his 'Pre-Week - 9 Power Rankings'. Watch Neil every Sunday LIVE on Sky Sports at 6pm.
Don't come at me, Patriots fans. I've double-checked and this ranking is correct! If these teams faced each other this weekend, I would fancy the Niners with their running game and pass rush.
Bill Belichick must be furious with this ranking. I'm sure it will be printed and posted all over New England's building. Wait, Bill doesn't care about me... or you... or the rest of the NFL. He just keeps winning... and winning... and winning!
Aaron Rodgers is leading the race to be the NFL's Most Valuable Player and I am loving the way Green Bay uses its running backs in the passing game. This offense is getting better by the week.
What a throw by Jacoby Brissett with the game against Denver on the line last week. This is a very competitive team that I would feel even better about if they would just win comfortably every now and then.
Deshaun Watson is special and fun to watch every weekend. Those of you on your way to Wembley Stadium will be in for a treat on Sunday. This is one of the league's major stars.
The Eagles stopped their bleeding in Buffalo by rushing for 218 yards but what this team needs now more than anything is some consistency. That has been lacking all season long.
The Raiders are competitive every week now and that is a very big step forward in Jon Gruden and Mike Mayock's building-block process as Las Vegas beckons.
Matt Nagy needs to have more faith in his offense and not be kneeling at the end of games to set up field goals. And if you are going to kneel, at least kneel where your kicker wants the ball.
Finally, the Chargers win a close one that they should have lost. There is undoubted talent on this team and given the weaker nature of the AFC, they're not dead yet at 3-5.
Jameis Winston is in a prove-it year in Tampa Bay. You have to wonder what he is proving given that he has turned it over 10 times in the past two games - the most in a two-week span since 1992.
The Browns must desperately wish they can rewind to the summer when hope filled the air and yours truly was making a documentary on them entitled 'Chasing Greatness.' Chasing .500 would be a bonus now.
A 460-yard passing day from Matt Schaub against Seattle reminded us that the offense is not the problem in Atlanta. The issue is the Dan Quinn-coached D and his backside is warming by the week.
