The Power Rankings Roundup (the above referenced power levels to the uninitiated) are an arguably arbitrary system of making sense of which teams are improving and which are falling out of favor. That said, it is possible that an assortment of Power Rankings is the most trustworthy resource for measuring a team’s impact for one simple reason: There is no true metric for their order. That’s right- they list how each media conglomerate feels about a team.Wins are the most important method for determining a team’s ranking, but quality of wins is right behind that. For instance, a powerful team that barely scrapes by against a bottom feeder will lose ranking in a given week. A spunky fight in a loss might catapult a team up a few levels. These are all elementary basics to the Power Ranking system, but one of the most fascinating discrepancies between outlets is how they deal with the uncanny BYE WEEK.The Chargers did not play anyone this week Youth Darius Philon Jersey , but they also did not lose. Their biggest rival, the Chiefs, beat another AFC West contender, the Broncos. The Raiders have pretty much thrown the towel in for this season (and the Broncos are on their way to the same end).Let’s dispense with the GIFs and get right to a roundup, shall we?ESPN.com1.

Houston TexansAverage Rating: 5.0Most Common Rating: 5.0It’s really no surprise that the Chargers are staying put at 5 Youth Virgil Green Jersey , having not lost— what is surprising is that no other teams have impressed enough to jump above them in the national radar. One thing is for sure- this will not stay the same next week. A win over Seattle will put them in with the league’s best contenders. A loss will have them falling toward the bottom of the top 10.-Jason “Animation Nerd” Michaels Custom Pittsburgh Steelers Jerseys
