NFL power rankings 2017: Tracking where teams are entering Week 7

New, comment

The Chiefs are no longer undefeated, but they are still the top team.

With the NFL season nearing the halfway mark, the power rankings continue to see a major shakeup. With the Chiefs being the last unbeaten team to fall and several other teams suffering major losses, the rankings are nearly a free-for-all.

The Kansas City Chiefs lost their first game, in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But Kansas City wasn't the only team that suffered a huge lost. The Green Bay Packers fell to the Minnesota Vikings, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone — which could potentially end his season.

Luckily for the Chiefs, they are still the top team in each power rankings. Unfortunately for the Packers, however, they took a huge fall. Yahoo Sports' power rankings has Green Bay at No. 16. On the other hand, the Philadelphia Eagles, Carolina Panthers, and Los Angeles Rams are in the top 10.

The Eagles, Panthers, and Rams are in the top 10 on ESPN's power rankings, and the Steelers moved to the top five after beating Kansas City. Philadelphia is also the No. 2 team on NFL.com's power rankings list, but the Rams are behind the Eagles at No. 3. However, the Atlanta Falcons slipped to No. 12.

The Packers slipped to No. 12 on CBS's power rankings list, but the top 10 looks similar to the other three lists. Green Bay fell out of the top 10 on each list.

Philadelphia is the top team on SB Nation's Week 7 Hope Rankings list. No, this isn't a power rankings list, but it gives fans an idea about which teams have the most hope heading into Week 7. Also, after the New Orleans Saints defeated the Detroit Lions, they are the second team on the Hope Rankings list.

Lastly, teams like the San Francisco 49ers and Cleveland Browns remain winless — and both squads are fighting for the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. Also, Cleveland is at the bottom of each power rankings.
