Week 9 NFL Power Rankings: 1-5

player. 49. The Packers were humbled in Denver but they still look like the class of the NFC.. 6-1. Last Week: 2. Green Bay Packers . 5

Last Week: 5. Carolina Panthers . 4. player. 87. The Panthers could have been considered pretenders when they were 4-0 but the scheduled has gotten more difficult yet they remain undefeated.. 7-0

Denver Broncos . 2. player. 45. The once elite offense is no longer elite but the defense now is. And the offense just showed that it can still perform at a high level in last week’s win over the Packers.. 7-0. Last Week: 4

player. 47. The Patriots haven’t done anything to warrant being taken off the top of the list but it is clear there are legitimate challengers in the AFC standing in the way of a Patriots’ return to the Super Bowl.. 7-0. Last Week: 1. New England Patriots . 1
