Nfl Tickets - Top 10 Week 10 Rankings

in Defense
Here are the Top 10 teams in the National Football League as I see them heading into Week 10 of the 2010 season:

1. Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens seemed to remember that Ray Rice was their best offensive player on Sunday, as they fed him the ball regularly both on the ground and through the air against Miami. Their secondary played much better than before their bye week, which will be the key to the Ravens' Super Bowl hopes. They don't have a firm hold on this top spot, but they're here.

2. New York Giants: The Giants are the best team in the NFC. I love the balance of this football team. The Giants can consistently gain yardage on the ground, can pass the ball effectively and have a very good defense. Find a weakness.

3. Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers have squeaked by a couple of teams over the last few weeks and lost in New Orleans. However, they're finding ways to win and playing tough defense, which is often a recipe for success. I don't think they're as good as a lot of people do, but I can't rank them any worse than third right now.

4. New York Jets: I am not ready to buy into the Jets. They snuck by Denver, got shut out by Green Bay and lucked out against Detroit. When Mark Sanchez doesn't play well, this team doesn't play well. The defense just isn't as fearsome as last season, though it's still good.

5. Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons got a big win against the Bucs, but definitely need work. Their offense is solid and balanced, but Roddy White might be a bit hobbled now. Matt Ryan needs to play better on the road, but he's a beast at home. This secondary still worries me.

6. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts lost a tough one in Philly last week, but are still one of the best teams in the AFC as far as I can tell. They've experienced a ton of injuries, but have found a way to keep things running relatively smoothly. Austin Collie is bound to miss some time after an ugly injury, but Peyton Manning seems to find ways to move the ball regardless of who he's throwing to.

7. Green Bay Packers: The Packers have looked very good over the past two weeks, especially on defense. We all know that this offense is one that can sell NFL tickets, but the defensive unit is really coming around. Clay Matthews has to be the frontrunner for Defensive Player of the Year.

8. New England Patriots: The Pats experienced a huge slide in the rankings this week after an ugly loss to Cleveland. The Browns are definitely a team on the rise, but the Patriots shouldn't be dominated by them.

9. New Orleans Saints: The Saints dismantled the Panthers and appear to be getting stronger every week. They're heading into their bye with a lot of confidence and should get Reggie Bush back in Week 11.

10. Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles made a statement by beating Indianapolis at home in Week 9. Michael Vick has proven that he is back and better than ever in 2010. They're a legitimate contender in the NFC and should continue to climb these rankings.
