ESPN has the power rankings out this week that show some scary trends for all 32 teams in the NFL in honor of Halloween. The Rams are still atop the rankings with their win over the Packers this last week. They look to make this season a clean sweep if they can get through the KC Chiefs in week 11 Monday Night. In second place is the all mighty Chiefs at 7-1, also with a good chance of running the table for the rest of the season. These two teams at the top seem to be the only bumps in the road for each other.
In third for the first time this season are the New Orleans Saints their run of 6 straight wins puts them firmly in the top five at the mid point of the season. The Patriots fall one spot to 4th, but still hold on as one of the teams to beat this year. In the fifth spot this week are the Los Angles Chargers. Phillip Rivers is likely having one of his best seasons ever and he will need to maintain that momentum as 4 of the next 7 games will be played on the road.
