SLR’s Week 9 NFL Power Rankings: 16-20

5-3. Last Week: 21. Buffalo Bills. 20. player. 16. Benching EJ Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton looked like a desperation move by head coach Doug Marrone but it sure looks like the right decision now. At 5-3, the Bills enter the second half of their schedule looking to contend for a playoff berth.

31. Hopefully the Giants used their bye wisely. Their next four games are against the Colts, Seahawks, 49ers and Cowboys.. 3-4. Last Week: 19. New York Giants. 19. player

Cleveland Browns. 18. player. 53. It hasn’t always been pretty or easy but at 4-3, the Browns have been able to keep pace in the AFC North.. 4-3. Last Week: 17

Last Week: 20. Pittsburgh Steelers. 17. player. 55. If Todd Haley has freed up the Steelers offense for good, they can be a dangerous team.. 4-3

Last Week: 15. Carolina Panthers. 16. player. 87. The defending NFC South Champions aren’t where they want to be halfway through the season but the entire division is under .500.. 3-4-1
