Editor's Eight: NFL power rankings

Northwest Herald Sports Editor Eric Olson's NFL rankings (with last week's ranking in parentheses):

1. Green Bay Packers 6-0 (1)

They didn't score the entire second half last week, but it's hardly panic time.

2. New England Patriots 5-1 (4)

QB Tom Brady leads NFL in passing yards with 2,163.

3. Baltimore Ravens 4-1 (3)

QB Joe Flacco having a nice season, as offense showing some explosiveness.

4. San Francisco 49ers 5-1 (8)

Coaches' silly postgame behavior overshadowed big win at Detroit.

5. San Diego Chargers 4-1 (6)

Week of rest ought to have helped banged-up WR Vincent Jackson.

6. New Orleans Saints 4-2 (2)

Sunday was forgettable: Brees intercepted three times, coach broke his leg, Buccaneers tied them for first.

7. Detroit Lions 5-1 (5)

Have to get back in the groove against a Falcons team just starting to find its own.

8. Oakland Raiders 4-2 (9)

Can QB Carson Palmer really just step in on a week's notice and make everything better?

9. Pittsburgh Steelers 4-2 (11)

11. Buffalo Bills 4-2 (7)
