2023 Power Rankings - Week 7

Rank (LW) Logo Team Record Rating Comment
1 (1) FW 5-1 120.96 The Pistons are having a magical season. After losing their first game of the season, they have reeled off 5 wins a row. And for the third time in four games, they were the highest scoring team amassing 629 points in that time. And for the second straight week, they had the Player of the Week with Mostert going off for 43 points.
2 (3) LAB 5-1 101.83 Los Angeles rebounded after suffering their first loss to easily beat San Diego. It is their 5th win of this season which surpassed their win total from last year (4). The Bombers struck it rich when they claimed Kyren Williams off waivers in week 2. He went for 31 points and has been crushing it, but he was bit by the injury bug and will miss some time now.
3 (2) SH 4-2 95.80 The champs won for the third straight time but in relatively quiet fashion. The reason why it is so quiet is that their winning streak has scored less points (373) than when they went 1-2 to start the season (380). The one person on the roster that was making some noise was their kicker. Harrison Butker scored 17 points which included making a 60 yarder.
4 (4) CTR 3-3 92.47 The Triumph haven't had too much luck this season. At 3-3, it would seem like they are a middle of the pack type team. They are tied for first for the number of wins versus the rest of the league with Fort Wayne. Chicago was dealt some bad luck when McCaffrey left last week's game due to a rib/oblique injury and didn't return.
5 (5) ND 2-4 86.10 The Nimrods are on a 3-game losing streak after falling one point short of victory. How close was it? On the last play of SNF, Darren Waller was targeted and interferred with as time expired. A flag was thrown and the Giants had another play. Again, Waller was targeted and interferred with, but there was no call this time. It was a tough way to lose.
6 (8) SF 4-2 83.75 The Rattlesnakes survived another close game and held off North Dakota by one point. San Fran closed out the first half of divisional play undefeated which puts them at the top of the Red standings. The combined total for their margin of victory is 17 points. They won this week despite their QB Brock Purdy going for 10 points.
7 (6) SD 2-4 81.96 The Surge have fallen into a bad pattern. Win a game, lose two games. Win a game, lose two games. One week after scoring a season high of 159, they scored a season low of 104. Hurts and Chase fell into the same kind of pattern. They combined for 104 points in week 5 only to scored 43 points in week 6.
8 (10) ANA 2-4 79.11 Anaheim had a taste of winning and kept it going with a second straight victory. They prevailed in a battle of non-playoff teams to move into the first team out of the playoffs. Travis Etienne looked great on American soil finding the endzone twice to finish with 27 points. The Vikings defense delivered against the Bears netting 19 points.
9 (9) DEN 3-3 76.54 The Diamonds picked up their third win of the season to get back to .500. Scoring is of a premium when facing Denver because they have yet to see a game have more than 248 points scored in it. Kirk Cousins is finding out that life is hard without a mega star at wideout. In his first game without Jefferson, Captain Kirk flopped for 13 points.
10 (7) TB 4-2 76.13 The Blizzard are ice cold. After starting the year off at 4-0, they were slaughtered in their next two matchups. Their +/- went from +56 to -52. Here's a snap shot of how bad of week they had. Top scorer: Chris Olave - 16 points. Tyler Bass was shutout. Zero touchdowns. Justin Fields injured, finished with 4 points.
11 (11) ATL 1-5 67.94 The Jesters found themselves back in the loss column. This has been the third time that Atlanta has started off a season at 1-5. The other times it happened were in 2017 and 2021; both ending without a playoff apperance. They will need more out of their QB position who has yet to break 25 points this season.
12 (12) DET 1-5 64.78 The Devils are bringing up the rear after losing their fifth straight game. It was their third time this season where they failed to break 100 points. They have the league's lowest PF with 621 points. But things may have taken a turn in the right position as Austin Ekeler returned to action. He had a low output of 9 points, but at least he had 18 touches.
