2021 NFL Power Rankings: Week 5

The landscape of the 2021 NFL season beginning to take shape and we’re definitely seeing which teams are going to rise to the top and which will not.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Last week I said its kind of hard to really know who are the frauds and who are the contenders through the first three games, but by Week 4 you really begin to see which teams are actually for real and which have questions.

The Denver Broncos obviously look like a team with questions as do a slew of other previous Top 10 contenders. However, I will run a few victory laps around all of the Arizona Cardinals haters who gave me all sorts of crap for ranking them above the Los Angeles Rams last week. May I say... BOOM!

Even though my rankings last week were a complete dumpster fire everywhere else, I still have that to hang my hat on. Here’s to improving the rest of the list this week.

Here are you full Week 5 power rankings.
