Power Ratings - NFL Week 9
The Patriots and 49ers had been alone at the top of our rankings last week. However, after a strong performance by the Saints thanks to a rejuvenated Drew Brees, Who Dat Nation now joins the ranks among the NFL Elite. On the other end of the spectrum, the Cincinnati Bengals have fallen hard as they have benched Andy Dalton in favor of Ryan Finley. The Bengals would only be a 3 point favorite on a neutral field against the Miami Dolphins.
Below are our NFL Week 8 Power Ratings. The biggest risers in our ratings are the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints. It is time to put some respect on their names.
To calculate the spread, take the difference between the home team and add in the home-field advantage.
