2021 Week 7 NFL Power Rankings: Can the Raiders break into the top-5?
No. 9 through 7
One of the more positive surprises of the 2021 NFL season has been the play of the Cincinnati Bengals, who are fresh off a stunning victory against the Baltimore Ravens on the road. The combination of Joe Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase is one of the best in the game, and it is clear that Chase is going to run away with the NFL’s Rookie of the Year honor.
Going into their matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, the Tennessee Titans were the underdog, but as the game began, it was clear they were the stronger team. Derrick Henry threw more touchdown passes in the game than Patrick Mahomes did, and now that the defense is fixed, the Titans are going to be a hard out come playoff time.
The hope for the Dallas Cowboys is that Dak Prescott can make it through an entire regular season, as he is playing at an incredible pace in his return from a devastating injury last year. Prescott and the Cowboys are getting it done on the ground, and through the air, while Trevon Diggs looks like one of the best young cornerbacks in football.
