Another week of the NFL season is down, and every team is at least halfway through their campaign. The crop of unbeatens has dropped to three teams, as the Cincinnati Bengals, the New England Patriots, and the Carolina Panthers all continue their march towards a perfect record. A loss to the Indianapolis Colts dropped the Denver Broncos from their zero-loss pedestal.

On to the NFC West.

Two NFC West teams took their bye week, so only half of the division was in action this week. One win and one loss from those two teams left the division one game over .500 as a group. Just one of the four teams has a winning record, two teams are even at .500, and one team has a winning record.

The division leader is still the only team from the division that would make the playoffs with the way things stand now. The two .500 teams are each 1.5 games out of a playoff spot. With nine weeks in the books, here is Golden Gate Sports’ newest NFC West power rankings.
