The Miami Dolphins embarrassingly lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars, and the Baltimore Ravens schooled the L.A. Chargers. Here’s the Week 7 NFL Power Rankings:

Pick Analysis. 0-6. . Detroit Lions. 50. Scouting Report. 32. player

The Lions fight hard, but it’s hard to rank a winless team any higher.

Scouting Report. New YorkGiants. 31. player. Pick Analysis. 1-5. . 31

Big Blue got a big beatdown by the Matthew Stafford-led L.A. Rams and didn’t score a TD until garbage time.

30. 52. 1-5. JacksonvilleJaguars. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . player

A slight rise for getting the first win of the season last week against Miami.

Pick Analysis. 1-5. 29. Scouting Report. . HoustonTexans. player. 10

A five-game losing streak and having to play the Cardinals this week? Ouch.

28. 59. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 1-5. MiamiDolphins. . player

To think they went into Foxborough and beat the Patriots in Week 1. The loss to Jacksonville makes them join the bottom of the list.

1-5. Scouting Report. . New YorkJets. 27. player. 30. Pick Analysis

The only reason the Jets are ahead of the Texans is due to Zach Wilson and his future, and their lone win being over a legit team in the Tennessee Titans.

54. Scouting Report. 2-4. player. Pick Analysis. . PhiladelphiaEagles. 26

This is a “Jekyll and Hyde”. What team will we see from week to week? From playing the Chiefs close one week to getting blown off the map next week, the Eagles are unpredictable.

Pick Analysis. 2-3. . AtlantaFalcons. 25. player. Scouting Report. 44

Cordarelle Patterson would win the “have yourself a career year” award if there was one in the NFL.

Scouting Report. 2-3. 42. 24. player. Pick Analysis. . San Francisco49ers

Imagine what the 49ers would be right now if they could’ve played defense for 37 seconds against Green Bay. A lot higher in our NFL Power Rankings, that’s for sure.

2-4. . New EnglandPatriots. 23. 47. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. player

Bill Belichick is trying hard with Mac Jones, but there is growing pains with a rookie for a reason.

2-3. SeattleSeahawks. 36. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . 22. player

Don’t blame these losses on Geno Smith- he doesn’t deserve that. Blame Jon Schneider and Pete Carroll for failing to adapt their offense and personnel. When’s the last time the Seahawks had a good offensive line?

21. . WashingtonFootball Team. 58. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 2-4. player

Eventually Riverboat Ron has to turn this around, right?

Pick Analysis. 2-4. . player. Scouting Report. IndianapolisColts. 20. 46

The Colts could easily have been on a 3-game win streak had Rodrigo Blankenship made one more field goal. Carson Wentz looks like the 2017 version of himself.

. CarolinaPanthers. 19. player. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 87. 3-3

This is the Sam Darnold we all know from his time in New York.

3-3. 18. player. 45. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. DenverBroncos.

Is it surprising that these two teams started 3-0 and are the same record? Not too much when you think about it.

Pick Analysis. 17. Scouting Report. 3-3. . ChicagoBears. player. 57

As Justin Fields goes, so do the Bears. Help this kid with some protection and weapons and he will flourish.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. MinnesotaVikings. 3-3. . 16. player. 60

The Vikings nearly did another Mike Zimmer-induced choke against Carolina last week.

Pick Analysis. PittsburghSteelers. Scouting Report. 3-3. . 15. player. 55

Can Ben Roethlisberger stay healthy enough to last through the season? That’s the only way they can stay competitive in the AFC North.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . 14. 3-2. New OrleansSaints. player. 15

Jameis Winston may be turning back the clock to his Florida State days. If he continues to ball out, then the Saints may just be a wild card team.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. Kansas CityChiefs. 124. 3-3. . 13. player

Something just seems off about the Chiefs this year. Is it Patrick Mahomes’ fiance and brother? Is it Tyrann Mathieu’s cryptic tweeting again? The world may never know.

. 12. player. 53. Pick Analysis. Scouting Report. 3-3. ClevelandBrowns

The only thing saving them is their run game, but this is going to change after Thursday Night’s game based on how well they can run with backups.

11. player. Scouting Report. 4-2. . Las VegasRaiders. 28. Pick Analysis

Losing to the Bears was surprising, but the John Gruden emails fiasco certainly did not help either. That loss still can’t happen for this Raiders team.

Scouting Report. 10. 13. Pick Analysis. 4-2. . Los AngelesChargers. player

The Chargers were served a reality check from the Baltimore Ravens, and rightfully so as it feels like the Chargers have overachieved since their losing record last season.

. Scouting Report. 9. player. 56. Pick Analysis. 4-2. CincinattiBengals

They throttled Detroit just like they should. Their schedule from this point out isn’t too tough either.

. 35. Scouting Report. 4-2. 8. player. Pick Analysis. TennesseeTitans

Only here because they have to thank their turf for helping them win the game.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . Los AngelesRams. 51. 5-1. 7. player

They aren’t better than Buffalo.

DallasCowboys. player. Scouting Report. 5-1. 6. 123. Pick Analysis.

Dak Prescott is playing angry and motivated and that’s what makes them so dangerous to any team.

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . Green BayPackers. player. 5-1. 5. 49

Great record, weak division, and struggled in the first half against Detroit and only beat Chicago by 10 points. Rodgers is always scary, but targeting Kevin King remains the way you beat the Packers.

48. Scouting Report. Tampa BayBuccaneers. Pick Analysis. 5-1. . 4. player

One can never rule out Tom Brady and whatever team he plays for. Although the passing defense is looking “sus” as the kids say (6th most passing yards allowed).

Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 4-2. BuffaloBills. 3. . player. 16

A loss like that doesn’t take anything away from what they’ve done all year, nor their spot near the top of our NFL Power Rankings. The debate to go for it can be debated, however.

5-1. . BaltimoreRavens. player. Scouting Report. 26. Pick Analysis. 2

Lamar Jackson is dangerous. Just ask the Colts.

1. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. . ArizonaCardinals. player. 32. 6-0

You can’t top perfection. Arizona looks to go 7-0 against a Houston Texans squad. If they achieve that, they will match that mark for the first time since 1974. They are the kings of our NFL Power Rankings this week.

Next. Watson could be traded this week. dark
