Guest Post NFL Power Rankings and This Week's Picks

Frequent contributor and friend of the blog, The Lube Tube has compiled Power Rankings for all 30 NFL teams (plus St. Louis and Oakland). The first column is the team, followed by their power ranking, strength of schedule through week 5, then the team's remaining strength of schedule. Very scientific.

21.6 17.7
27.6 12.5
20.8 14.4
15.0 18.6
21.0 14.7
20.5 14.5
13.8 18.1
16.5 14.7
17.8 20.1
17.0 16.7
15.6 16.2
19.2 11.1
14.0 18.5
16.5 12.5
14.0 17.5
12.0 18.3
18.3 17.5
15.5 14.9
10.8 15.7
20.8 17.3
12.2 19.2
16.4 18.2
20.4 14.4
16.8 19.3
17.0 15.0
19.8 18.2
10.6 16.3
12.8 18.1
15.0 18.6
14.6 15.8
16.4 13.5
14.8 15.8

I don't feel very confident in any of these picks, but here are my three 'If you have to put money on someone this week, put it on these games' selections. I'm going to give you four instead of three because I don't feel great about any of them, so maybe this will leave me 2-2. How on earth are the Jags -9.5 over ANYONE. Did you see what happened to them last week? I don't care if St. Louis is as awful as they are, a team that got housed like that doesn't deserve more than being one score favorites.

Chicago (+3) over Atlanta-- The Bears look better each week and the Falcons looked unstoppable vs. the 49ers on Sunday, this would be the matchup of the week if not for NO/NYG. I like Chicago to win outright on the road in this game and assert themselves as a force in the NFC along with Minny and the winner of the New York/New Orleans game.

Philadelphia (-14) over Oakland-- McNabb was merciless in his mauling of the men of Tampa Bay in his return from a rib injury. He went 16/21 for 264 yds and 3 TDs resulting to a near perfect 157.2 QB rating. He gets to lead an attack against another awful assortment of athletes in Almaeda County Stadium this Sunday and will put on a show.

New England (-9) over Tennessee-- Tennessee is terrible, unlike the other 2008 division winners who started slow and have rebounded (Miami and Pittsburgh), they chose to stay with the ones who started slow and stayed slow (Arizona, Carolina). New England should easily win this game at home.

New Orleans (-3) over New York Giants-- Dommy's going to hate me for this one, but I'm giving the Saints the win over the G-Men. If both teams play up to snuff, this should be the best game of the week and one of the best of the year. Eli and Brees could put on a show as each team is averaging over 30 points per game.
