  • The week-to-week swings endured by teams many had pegged for playoff spots shows just how tightly packed the NFL is this year. But is that a good or bad sign for the quality of play?

There is a team ranked in the 20s this week (the Giants) currently holding a wild-card spot in the NFC, and another several spots below them (the Rams) just a game back of playoff positioning. That’s how topsy-turvy the first half of the season has been.

A razor-thin margin exists between a top-10 Power Rankings spot and a tumble into the bottom half, because separating the good teams from the bad remains a chore. Maybe everyone, save for the Patriots and Cowboys, is just average. 

But the format here requires a team per spot, 1 through 32. So, here’s how it breaks down near the season’s halfway point.
