Welcome to the post-Week 5 edition of triggering power rankings.
Check here for last week’s edition.
No. 32: New York Jets (+0)
The Jets are bad at football.
No. 31: Atlanta Falcons (-1)
Atlanta finally fired Dan Quinn and Thomas Dimitroff.
No. 30: New York Giants (+1)
The New York offense woke up against the Cowboys, but they came up just short.
No. 29: Washington Football Team (-1)
With the quarterback carousel in full swing, the Football Team is not playing well.
No. 28: Denver Broncos (+1)
Drew Lock is back. The Broncos will likely struggle for the rest of the season.
No. 27: Jacksonville Jaguars (+0)
The Jaguars have been underwhelming over the last few weeks.
No. 26: Cincinnati Bengals (-7)
Joe Burrow and the Bengals were stifled by the Ravens.
No. 25: Detroit Lions (-3)
The Lions fall in the power rankings because some of the teams behind them played much better in Week 5.
No. 24: San Francisco 49ers (-10)
Jimmy Garoppolo was a mess. The 49ers are staring at the NFL’s most difficult schedule the rest of the way.
No. 23: Miami Dolphins (+3)
Miami had an impressive win in Santa Clara, clobbering the 49ers.
No. 22: Houston Texans (+2)
The Texans got their first win of the season. A win over the Titans could keep them in the division race.
No. 21: Minnesota Vikings (-1)
Mike Zimmer was right, but the Vikings lost in Seattle.
No. 20: Arizona Cardinals (-3)
Congrats, you beat the Jets.
No. 19: Los Angeles Chargers (+4)
Justin Herbert is quickly becoming much-watch television. Sadly, the Chargers will continue to choke in big spots.
No. 18: Dallas Cowboys (-3)
Dak Prescott is gone for the year. The Cowboys won the battle, but they might lose the war.
No. 17: Philadelphia Eagles (-1)
The Eagles are poised to be the NFC East favorites with the aforementioned injury to Prescott.
No. 16: Carolina Panthers (+9)
Carolina is operating on all cylinders, racking up three straight wins.
No. 15: Chicago Bears (+3)
The Bears have played well defensively, but the offense lacks oomph.
No. 14: New Orleans Saints (-3)
The Saints are one of the most undisciplined teams in recent memory.
No. 13: Indianapolis Colts (-1)
Philip Rivers single-handedly lowers the ceiling of Indianapolis.
No. 12: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-4)
Tampa Bay had a tough loss to Chicago, but they have an opportunity to bounce back against the Packers.
No. 11: Las Vegas Raiders (+10)
The Raiders were terrific on Sunday. They were dynamic offensively and did just enough to beat the Chiefs.
No. 10: Cleveland Browns (+3)
It was a shaky performance from Baker Mayfield, but the Browns have won four in a row.
No. 9: Los Angeles Rams (+0)
The Rams have swept the NFC East. They can get their first win against a non-NFC East team this week against the 49ers.
No. 8: Buffalo Bills (-3)
Josh Allen and the Bills came back to earth, getting decimated by the Titans on Tuesday.
No. 7: New England Patriots (+3)
The Patriots will have Cam Newton back, and they should start to rattle off some victories.
No. 6: Baltimore Ravens (-3)
The Ravens had one of the most underwhelming offensive performances in a 24-point win. The offense is out of sync.
No. 5: Kansas City Chiefs (-3)
The sleepwalking Chiefs finally took a loss after flirting with poor quarters and poor halves.
No. 4: Tennessee Titans (+3)
The Titans looked impressive against the Bills. They had the benefit of some short fields, but they capitalized.
No. 3: Pittsburgh Steelers (+3)
The defense has been a little shaky to this point, but the offense opened up and annihilated the Eagles.
No. 2: Seattle Seahawks (+2)
Seattle had to pull victory from Minnesota’s grasp, but they are 5-0 now.
No. 1: Green Bay Packers (+0)
The Packers are currently the best team in football.
