NFL Power Rankings 2015, Week 6: Eagles prove they're not dead yet

Ranking all 32 NFL Teams.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Now that Week 5 of the 2015 NFL regular season schedule is over, it's time to see where all 32 teams rank. For reference purposes, here is a link to last week's NFL Power Rankings.

The Philadelphia Eagles blew out their opponent to prove they are still alive once again.

BLG's WEEK 6 POWER RANKINGS

1) New England Patriots (Last Week: 1) - I'm sure Tom Brady really enjoyed crushing the Cowboys after those dumb comments Greg Hardy made about his wife.

2) Green Bay Packers (LW: 2) - Aaron Rodgers' streak of not throwing an interception at Lambeau Field finally ending, thus proving he's an awful quarterback. OK, more like awfully great to have as your team's quarterback.

3) Denver Broncos (LW: 3) - The same thing can be said about Denver after they win each week: they're lucky that defense is so dominant, but Peyton Manning does not look very good. It's not out of the realm of possibility that Manning gets benched this season ... is it?

4) Cincinnati Bengals (LW: 4) - Just when it looked like the Bengals might get blown out by an underperforming Seahawks team at home, Cincy rallied the troops and came back to win. The Stripes are playing some good football right now.

5) Arizona Cardinals (LW: 6) - Arizona responded to losing in Week 4 by going to Detroit and blowing out their opponents once again. The Cardinals own the NFL's best point differential so far this season (+100). They've outscored their opponents 190-90.

6) Atlanta Falcons (LW: 5) - It took overtime, but the Falcons managed to beat Washington in a close one. The bad news for the Falcons is that Julio Jones seems to be dealing with a nagging injury.

7) Seattle Seahawks (LW: 7) - It looked like the Seahawks were going to earn a tough road win in Cincy before they blew it.

8) Carolina Panthers (LW: 8) - Still not a believer in this team, which is why I'm not dropping the Seahawks under them. Carolina, coming off their bye, will play Seattle this week.

9) New York Jets (LW: 9) - The Jets got to enjoy their bye week.

10) Buffalo Bills (LW: 10) - Buffalo managed to escape Tennessee with a one-point win. It wasn't pretty for them.

11) Pittsburgh Steelers (LW: 12) - Le'Veon Bell is really good. Big win for the Steelers to beat the Chargers on the road without Big Ben.

12) Minnesota Vikings (LW: 11) - Minny had a bye week. Up next for them is a home game against the struggling Chiefs.

13) New York Giants (LW: 15) - The G-Men are on a three-game win streak after starting out 0-2, which isn't dissimilar to how the team started last season. It only took New York a few dropped interceptions by the 49ers and a no-call on intentional grounding late in the game (Eli Manning always gets away with those) to barely beat the lowly 49ers at home.

14) Indianapolis Colts (LW: 18) - Matt Hasselbeck is playing pretty darn well for a 40-year-old. Time for a quarterback controversy!? (Nah.)

15) San Diego Chargers (LW: 13) - The Bolts were just inches away from denying the Steelers' touchdown late in the game and securing the win. Unfortunately for them, it didn't work out.

16) St. Louis Rams (LW: 14) - Nick Foles threw four interceptions in the Rams' loss to Green Bay.

17) Philadelphia Eagles (LW: 23) - The Eagles have a point differential of +14, which ranks 12th overall in the NFL. It's the best of any team with a losing record. Philadelphia's defense looks strong, so if the offense can continue to play well the Eagles can be a good team.

18) Oakland Raiders (LW: 20) - It's hard not to be impressed with how the Raiders are playing teams close instead of getting killed like the Raiders usually do.

19) Washington Redskins (LW: 21) - WASTEAM almost managed to pull off an upset over the Falcons in the Georgia Dome, which is impressive. Unfortunately for them, Kirk Cousins is still a turnover machine.

20) Cleveland Browns (LW: 26) - Josh McCown actually leads the NFL in passing yards over the last three weeks, which is ... really something. Maybe the Browns have been right for not starting Johnny Football after all.

21) Baltimore Ravens (LW: 16) - Baltimore is arguably a little better than their record indicates, but unfortunately for them the record is all that matters.

22) Kansas City Chiefs (LW: 17) - Andy Reid is off to a bad start. To make matters even worse, the Chiefs lost Jamaal Charles for the season due to an ACL injury. Stick a fork in KC.

23) Dallas Cowboys (LW: 19) - It's clear the Cowboys aren't going anywhere with Brandon Weeden starting. He's 0-11 in his last eleven starts. Dallas has lost three games in a row.

24) Chicago Bears (LW: 30) - Kudos to Jay Cutler and the Bears for beating the Chiefs in Kansas City. Certainly didn't see that coming. Maybe this team isn't so awful after all.

25) New Orleans Saints (LW: 22) - It's easy to see why Rob Ryan's defense ranks dead last. It's a really bad unit. New Orleans allowed over 500 yards and 39 points to a previously struggling Philadelphia offense.

26) Houston Texans (LW: 24) - Not having a quarterback continues to be a big issue for the Texans.

27) Miami Dolphins (LW: 27) - Joe Philbin is out and it's now up to former tight end coach Dan Campbell to show if he can spark some life into this uninspiring team.

28) Tennessee Titans (LW: 29) - Former Eagles quarterback Marcus Mariota only lost to the Bills by a point. There's been worse losses.

29) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (LW: 32) - The Bucs are pretty terrible, but they've managed to beat two teams that are also pretty terrible.

30) Jacksonville Jaguars (LW: 28) - The wheels on the Gus Bus go round and round on their way to a losing record every year.

31) San Francisco 49ers (LW: 31) - The 49ers deserved to lose after dropping two gift interceptions in clutch moments.

32) Detroit Lions (LW: 25) - Things have gotten so bad for the Lions that Matt Stafford was benched for Dan Orlovsky in Detroit's loss. It might be time for the Lions to clean house after such a disappointing winless start.
