Herd Hierarchy: Colin Cowherd Ranks the 10 Best NFL Teams After Week 6

Herd Hierarchy: Colin Cowherd Ranks the 10 Best NFL Teams After Week 6 – October 20th


10. Chicago Bears (5-1)

“They’ve held all their opponents under 30 points, best in the NFL. I cannot unsee what they did to Tampa Bay. They pushed Tampa Bay around the field, induced 11 penalties by the Buccaneers, and Tampa Bay was absolutely rattled. PHYSICALLY rattled against Chicago. I don’t think they have a ton of juice offensively, but I think they’re well-coached, and they’ve held opponents under 20 in each of the last three weeks.”

9. Los Angeles Rams (4-2)

“Why? Because they’re favored by 5.5 over Chicago. That’s what the analytics and the oddsmakers think. They did not play well this week, and I know they’re 4-0 against the NFC East, but I think the defense is better than they give it credit for. The Niners were playing with absolute urgency on Sunday, and I think this is a very good football team in a tough division. They’ve had A LOT of travel. This is a good football team, they’re favored over the Bears, and they can be explosive when Jared Goff has time to throw.”

8. Green Bay Packers (4-1)

“I’m sorry, but I am putting the Packers here. I think they’re a September and early-October team. I can’t unsee them getting pushed around by Tampa. They were pushed around twice last year by San Francisco, pushed around by the Chargers, and pushed around by Philadelphia. This is a football team who does not like to get into a fistfight and now the weather changes, now comes the cold, and now comes the physical teams. Yes, Green Bay is fun in September and early-October, but I think we have a football team who clearly doesn’t have a ton of fight if they play physical football teams, and that’s what the NFL will be going forward.”

7. San Francisco 49ers (3-3)

“I can’t have the Packers above San Francisco. They're one of the most physical teams, and now their wide receivers are getting healthy. Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan are now 4-0 against the Rams. Their top back is out for the next three weeks, and their schedule is not easy, but I look at Kittle, healthy receivers, Garoppolo better, and best young coach in football – Kyle Shanahan, I don’t want any piece of San Francisco going forward. They’re not going to have Bosa, and the pass rush isn’t quite as good, but I like their physicality that was on display Sunday.”

6. Baltimore Ravens (5-1)

“I still like the Ravens a lot but I am concerned that in Lamar’s last three games his completion percentage is under 60%. I think they are a very good football team, but he is getting very casual in his delivery with a lot of sidearm stuff. They are not as explosive as they were last year, and what troubles me is their pass rush is wildly inconsistent, and they’re not as good defensively. I don’t know how Philadelphia got back into that game with Travis Fulgham. It’s a good football team but Lamar feels like he’s hit a bit of a ceiling. His throwing is getting sloppy, and his escapability is moving too far left, and too far right. They gotta reboot a little in the next couple weeks.”
