SLR’s Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: 1-5

Dallas Cowboys. 5. player. 123. Give him a productive running game and a competent defense and there is no need to make Tony Romo a scapegoat. Amazing how that happens.. 5-1. Last Week: 12

player. 54. The Eagles were favorites in the NFC East by default coming into the season, even after posting a strong season in 2013. The Cowboys are making a charge but the Eagles will be fine if they can play like they did in shutting out the Giants on Sunday Night Football.. 5-1. Last Week: 6. Philadelphia Eagles. 4

32. Injuries have forced the Cardinals to play three different quarterbacks but the results have remained the same. Wins. A third of the way through the season and the Cards are a game clear in the NFC West.. 4-1. Last Week: 4. Arizona Cardinals. 3. player

5-1. Last Week: 3. San Diego Chargers. 2. player. 13. If the season ended today, my theoretical MVP vote goes to Philip Rivers. He has posted quarterback ratings of better than 120 in five straight games.

1. player. 45. If the Broncos hold on to the top spot in the coming weeks it will be well-earned with the 49ers and Chargers ahead on the schedule. Fortunately for Peyton Manning and crew, both games will be at home before making a road trip to New England.. 4-1. Last Week: 2. Denver Broncos
