NFL Power Rankings Week 9

1. Los Angeles Rams (8-0)

The Rams are undefeated at the halfway mark of the season, thanks in major part to their high-powered offense, which was on full display Sunday. Jared Goff tossed three touchdowns and Todd Gurley had 195 total yards with a TD in the Rams’ nail-biting win over the visiting Packers.

2. New England Patriots (6-2)

James White rushed for 15 yards and one touchdown and caught 10 passes for 79 yards in the Patriots' 25-6 win over the Bills on Monday Night Football. Devin McCourty intercepted Buffalo's Derek Anderson in the fourth quarter, returning it 84 yards for a touchdown to record his first career pick-six.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (7-1)

Patrick Mahomes threw four touchdowns versus the Broncos, marking his fifth game this season with four or more passing scores. Sammy Watkins had his best outing as a member of the Chiefs, catching eight passes for a team-high 107 yards and two touchdowns.

4. New Orleans Saints (6-1)

The defense stepped up for New Orleans over host Minnesota on Sunday Night Football, highlighted by a pick-six by P.J. Williams.

5. Los Angeles Chargers (5-2)

The idle Chargers play at Seattle next week.

6. Carolina Panthers (5-2)

The NFL’s top-ranked defense was no match for QB Cam Newton, who threw for 219 yards and two touchdowns and rushed for a team-high 52 yards and another score as the Panthers roughed up the Ravens.

7. Pittsburgh Steelers (4-2-1)

James Conner rushed for 146 yards and two touchdowns in Pittsburgh’s rout of Cleveland.

8. Minnesota Vikings (4-3-1)

Adam Thielen is now the only player in NFL history to start a season with eight straight 100-yard receiving games after catching seven passes for 103 yards and a touchdown in the Vikings’ loss to the red-hot Saints.

9. Philadelphia Eagles (4-4)

Carson Wentz threw for 286 yards and three TDs as the Eagles beat the Jags in London.

10. Washington Redskins (5-2)

Ageless running back Adrian Peterson gashed the Giants’ defense for 149 rushing yards and a touchdown in an ugly victory.

11. Cincinnati Bengals (5-3)

The Bengals blew a 34-16 lead to the Bucs, before Randy Bullock bailed the team out with a 44-yard field goal as time expired. Joe Mixon played the best game of his professional career, recording 138 all-purpose yards and two touchdowns. Tyler Boyd had a career-day as well, catching nine passes for 138 yards and a touchdown.

12. Baltimore Ravens (4-4)

The Ravens gave up 36 points and 154 rushing yards, which were both season-highs. The offense turned the ball over three times, leading to 13 points for the Panthers.

13. Houston Texans (5-3)

The Texans’ winning streak is up to five after dominating the Dolphins on Thursday Night Football. Will Fuller’s ACL tear is a major bummer for an offense firing on all cylinders.

14. Chicago Bears (4-3)

Even with superstar pass rusher Khalil Mack sidelined, the Bears held the Jets to 57 yards on the ground and 207 total yards in an easy win.

15. Seattle Seahawks (4-3)

Russell Wilson recorded a perfect passer rating in Seattle’s road win over Detroit, completing 14 of 17 passes for 248 yards and three scores.
