NFL power rankings, Week 7: Bills sit atop the AFC

Looking the AFC version of our Week 7 NFL Power Rankings, the Buffalo Bills have taken control of the conference.

16. Houston Texans (LW: 15)

The Texans are competitive every week, but they don’t have enough talent to win most weekends.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 16) 

Pittsburgh has to move up the NFL power rankings after upsetting Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The question is if that’s a new start, or just a blip.

14. Denver Broncos (LW: 10)

Denver has to fall. towards the bottom. The Broncos have the league’s worst offense and a defense that must be getting tired of the same script.

13. Cleveland Browns (LW: 11)

The Browns are 2-4 and now play the Ravens, Bengals, Buccaneers and Bills. They’d be really lucky to sit 3-7 after 10 games.

12. Las Vegas Raiders (LW: 9)

At 1-4 and coming off their bye, the Raiders have to get going if they want any chance of making a move in the AFC. Up next, Houston.

11. Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 8)

Jacksonville started 2-1 but has since lost three straight. The Jags must find a way to beat the New York Giants at home, or face a long road back.

10. New England Patriots (LW: 13) 

With the Bears coming into Foxboro on Monday night, there’s a great chance the Patriots are 4-3 after this weekend.

9. Indianapolis Colts (LW: 14) 

Indianapolis is somehow playing for first place in the division when it takes on the Titans this Sunday at Nissan Stadium.

8. New York Jets (LW: 12)

At some point, we have to believe in the Jets. They’ve been inconsistent offensively, but at 4-2, the defense is legit and so are the rookies.

7. Tennessee Titans (LW: 7)

Tennessee won three straight before its bye week, and now it’s the Colts with a chance to sweep the season series.

6. Miami Dolphins (LW: 4)

The Dolphins started 3-0, got hurt, and now they’re 3-3. The good news? Miami has five very winnable games ahead.

5. Los Angeles Chargers (LW: 6)

The Chargers are 4-2, but it’s ugly. The offense needs to be much better and more explosive.

4. Baltimore Ravens (LW: 3)

The Ravens have to stop blowing huge leads. It’s a huge issue.

3. Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 5)

Cincinnati isn’t firing on all cylinders at 3-3, but Joe Burrow is starting to look like the stud he was in 2021.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 2)

The Chiefs lost to Buffalo, but have to feel good about the defense. Now, if they can get a little more help in the pass rush …

1. Buffalo Bills (LW: 1)

After beating the Chiefs at Arrowhead for the second straight season, there’s no doubt who the top dog in the AFC is.
