NFL Top 10: Week 7

Story posted October 21, 2022 in CommRadio, Sports by Rob Cardini

We're through six weeks of the NFL season, and the real Super Bowl contenders have begun to seperarte themselves from the rest of the pack. It's the top three, then the rest.

Let's take a look at which teams round out the top 10.

1. Buffalo Bills (5-1)

The Bills got their revenge on Kansas City Chiefs last week and finally finished and closed out a close game. Bearing any injuries it doesn’t look like Josh Allen and the Bills will slow down thus claiming the top spot.

2. Philadelphia Eagles (6-0)

Philadelphia remained undefeated as they beat their rivals, the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. Things got a little dicey in the fourth quarter, but the Eagles still remain a top Super Bowl contender.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (4-2)

No need to panic after a loss to the best team in the league. Both sides of the ball still looked pretty solid for the Chiefs who were a few mistakes away from a different outcome.

4. Minnesota Vikings (5-1)

The Vikings had a very solid win in Miami this past week showing they’re one of the best teams in the league and the best team in their division. A game against the Bills is waiting for them in two weeks which will say a lot about this team.

5. New York Giants (5-1)

The Giants are here and here to stay. After back-to-back come-from-behind wins the Giants crack the top 5. Saquon Barkley is back to being the freak athlete he is while the defense is doing its thing.

6. Los Angeles Chargers (4-2)

Some might be questioning the Chargers after a sloppy overtime win vs. the Denver Broncos but the Broncos have one of the best defenses in the league. Instead, the Chargers won in a way they usually don’t and earned a top-10 spot.

7. San Francisco 49ers (3-3)

In Kyle Shanahan we trust. Even though the Niners lost to the Falcons this past Sunday it’s hard to believe they will continue to struggle with Shanahan at the helm who seems to play up to the competition when needed.

8. Dallas Cowboys (4-2)

Reality set in for the Cowboys Sunday night; their defense could only carry Cooper Rush so far against average teams. The Cowboys need Dak Prescott back as soon as possible and can easily jump into the top 5 when he returns.

9. Baltimore Ravens (3-3)

The Ravens blew yet another second-half lead, this time against the Giants on Sunday. If they can start closing games out they will climb the list very fast.

10. New York Jets (4-2)

Yes, you are reading that right, the Jets made the top 10.

Head coach Robert Saleh led his team into Lambeau Field and defeated the Packers as rookie standouts Breece Hall and Sauce Gardner continue their push for rookie of the year.
