NEO Sports Insiders Week Five NFL Power Rankings

16. MINNESOTA VIKINGS (11)

I Struggle with this team. The Broncos also struggled with this team. Minnesota has a bye this week and it will be good for them to re-group and come back in Week 6 with some fresh legs.

17. KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (12)

Seven field goals. Ouch. Alex Smith and Jeremy Maclin had decent days in the stat column but you need to find a way into the end-zone in the NFL. Sending kicker Cairo Santos out to do your offense’s work is not going to win your team games. The Bears are coming off their first win of the season and KC will have another tough Sunday if they continue to depend on Santos for every point.

18. OAKLAND RAIDERS (16)

Every team has a bad game or two during the season. Oakland had a rough one against a win-less Chicago Bears team in Soldier Field, and dropped an L this past week. That being said Oakland will be a team to keep an eye on if the Denver Broncos start to struggle in that division. If Derek Carr, Amari Cooper, and Latavius Murray can continue to make plays I would look for Oakland to give the Denver defense a headache and a half this Sunday.

19. DALLAS COWBOYS (17)

One of the most injury plagued teams of 2015, the Dallas Cowboys are in trouble. Reports that Dez Bryant may be able to return in Week 7 after their bye are promising, but may not be enough. The backfield took a blow when Lance Dunbar clutched his knee and was diagnosed with an ACL injury – he’s lost for the season. Linebacker Sean Lee dropped his head a little too low and is now in the concussion protocol. Hey, maybe this week Brandon Weeden can turn it aro – oh, what’s that you say? New England is coming to town? Nevermind.
