Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui #86 of the St. Louis Rams celebrates his second quarter touchdown. Despite the loss, the Rams are static in this week's NFL Power Rankings.
It's Tuesday, and that can mean only one thing: it's time for some meaningless NFL Power Rankings!
And where do the St. Louis Rams stand in the amalgamation of NFL Power Rankings around the web? The answer might surprise you. Despite giving away a game last week to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Rams haven't lost much ground, which means observers view the last game as something of an anomaly that they can overcome. We'll see.
Let's dissect the rankings below.
The Rams remain at #24 in the SBN NFL Power Rankings. Here's their take:
Tough loss to the Bucs. The Rams arrow is still pointing up with the progress Sam Bradford is making. They're finally on the way up.
As for the rest of the division, the 49ers are last, Arizona is #19 (a little generous, IMO) and Seattle is #16.
The six experts at NFL.com are, as usual, all over the place with the Rams.
Gil Brandt has them at #24, Pat Kirwan at #25, Steve Wyche at #20, Vic Carucci at #24, Jason La Canfora at #22 and Bucky Brooks at #19. It's amazing what a difference a franchise QB makes in the power rankings.
I wonder what a win on the road would have done for the Rams this week?
