2010 Power Rankings: Week 10
RK (LW) TEAM REC COMMENT

1 (2) Ravens 6-2 Channing Crowder's least favorite team has won five of its past six. (Walker)

2 (3) Steelers 6-2 The Steelers are 3-1 with QB Ben Roethlisberger. (Walker)

3 (6) Falcons 6-2 The Falcons have held six of their past 10 opponents to 278 yards or fewer, including Tampa Bay in Week 9. (Sando)

4 (7) Giants 6-2 The Giants seem downright dominating, and they're improving week to week. (Clayton)

5 (4) Jets 6-2 This is a stunner: Getting to the QB is becoming a problem for the Jets' defense. (Clayton)

6 (1) Patriots 6-2 It's hard to believe a Bill Belichick team is ranked 32nd in third-down defense. (Clayton)

7 (8) Packers 6-3 The defense has allowed only seven points in the past two games. (Walker)

8 (12) Eagles 5-3 Michael Vick is willing to take as many hits as necessary if it means winning. (Clayton)

9 (10) Saints 6-3 The Saints won big, but they've struggled badly on third down in two of their past three games. (Sando)

10 (5) Colts 5-3 The limited Bengals are just the right sort of team to pop up on the Colts' schedule now. (Kuharsky)

11 (9) Titans 5-3 Randy Moss has arrived, and the circus begins. (Kuharsky)

12 (16) Raiders 5-4 Only three AFC teams have more wins and only one other (the Jets) is 3-0 in its division. (Kuharsky)

13 (14) Buccaneers 5-3 The best-team-in-the-NFC mantra can wait for now, but the Bucs definitely have made progress. (Sando)

14 (11) Chiefs 5-3 The Chiefs' next four games appear favorable: at Denver, Arizona, at Seattle, Denver. (Kuharsky)

15 (13) Texans 4-4 Stuck with no-name receivers? No matter if you're playing the Texans, who give yards to all. (Kuharsky)

16 (22) Chargers 4-5 Are the Chargers transitioning from typically poor early season to typically strong late season? (Kuharsky)

17 (15) Dolphins 4-4 LB Cameron Wake is having a Pro Bowl season, but the running game needs a wake-up call. (Clayton)

18 (18) Redskins 4-4 Did Donovan McNabb need all of this Mike Shanahan controversy before a game against the Eagles? (Clayton)

19 (17) Bears 5-3 With the way the Bears played in Week 9, they were lucky they were facing the winless Bills. (Walker)

20 (19) Jaguars 4-4 Look at Week 10 this way: David Garrard's been better than Matt Schaub of late, and the Jags swept the Texans in 2009. (Kuharsky)

21 (21) Rams 4-4 Beating the 49ers in Week 10 would give the Rams their first road victory and a winning record. (Sando)

22 (23) Vikings 3-5 It's clear QB Brett Favre and coach Brad Childress won't spend the holidays together. (Walker)

23 (26) Browns 3-5 Rookie QB Colt McCoy owns wins over Drew Brees and Tom Brady. (Walker)

24 (20) Seahawks 4-4 Getting Russell Okung back will help the offensive line, but the defensive front is in shambles.(Sando)

25 (24) Cardinals 3-5 The Cardinals' eight return touchdowns are helping to mask their offensive futility. (Sando)

26 (25) Bengals 2-6 It's going to be a long second half of the season for the Bengals. (Walker)

27 (27) Lions 2-6 The Lions are like Ndamukong Suh's kicking: great style points but poor results. (Walker)

28 (30) 49ers 2-6 Troy Smith gives the 49ers' offense a different look in a year when continuity was a top priority. (Sando)

29 (28) Broncos 2-6 Losers of four in a row before the bye, the Broncos now play host to the division-leading Chiefs. (Kuharsky)

30 (29) Cowboys 1-7 This wasn't the way Jason Garrett envisioned becoming a head coach, taking over an underachieving team at midseason. (Clayton)

31 (31) Panthers 1-7 Perhaps coach John Fox can sell his next employer on the Panthers' No. 11 defensive ranking. (Sando)

32 (32) Bills 0-8 The Bills are throwing the ball so much they might as well start calling the offense "Air Gailey." (Clayton)
