Week 6 NFL Power Rankings: Chiefs fall, Seahawks rise
By Will Lomas
8. Tennessee Titans (+0)
The Tennessee Titans are a complete and utter mystery right now. I’m leaving them at 8 because we are going to see them in a few days and hopefully we can see whether the depth on this roster is worth noting or if we are going to move them down the power rankings until their COVID outbreak is fully gone.
As it stands, it looks like the players infected in the first wave of tests are working their way back now including standout defensive tackle Daquan Jones. If the Titans can continue to add players over the next few days, at this time next week we should have a much clearer picture of who they are after facing the Buffalo Bills and the division rival Houston Texans.
7. New Orleans Saints (+0)
I think the New Orleans Saints are good but don’t hold me to that.
Looking at Drew Brees live feels like watching someone with a great poker face because you want to call him out for checking down, but then it works so now you don’t know if he can’t make the difficult throw or if he doesn’t want to make the difficult throw.
Either way, I almost moved them down the list because Michael Thomas is getting called out by his own teammates in practice and he isn’t well-liked apparently.
When one of your best players isn’t well-liked in the locker room, it rarely works long-term for anyone.
