Another week of NFL action down, only 11 more weeks to go. Of course, it wouldn’t be a week in the NFL without a little bit of controversy. The NFL catch rules continue to be indecipherable, and they get cloudier and cloudier with each passing week. Detroit Lions’ receiver Golden Tate was credited with a touchdown catch despite the video evidence to the contrary, really just making one scratch their head and wonder if this all matters. The catch rules are really just getting more and more complicated.

Anyway, on to the NFC West.

One NFC West team enjoyed a bye week, taking a week to rest up and recover from some injuries while also having an extra week to prepare for their next opponent. Two teams in the division won their matchups, while another team found another creative way to blow a late lead. For just the second time in six weeks this season, the NFC West earned a combined winning record. In week one, the four teams combined to go 3-1.

Still just one team sits with an overall winning record, while the other three are all under the .500 mark. There’s still 10 games to go on the slate (11 for one team), and really no one is separating from the pack, despite what the records say.

The division is still very winnable for every team, so after six weeks of action, here are the new Golden Gate Sports’ NFC West power rankings.
