ESPN has released its NFL Power Rankings for Week 9 and once again the St. Louis Rams have moved up only one spot to No. 29. At least we have another panel that believes the Rams are no longer the worst team in the NFC, as the Cardinals sit one spot lower at No. 30.
The team has dug quite a hole to start the season, but Mike Sando makes a good point regarding the opportunity still available to the Rams with their remaining schedule:
Six division games in the final nine weeks will help the Rams as the season progresses. (Sando)
ESPN used a panel of five voters on ESPN.com's NFL staff: writers John Clayton (NFC North), Ashley Fox (NFC East), James Walker (AFC East, AFC North), Paul Kuharsky (AFC South, AFC West), and Mike Sando (NFC South, NFC West). So now you know where to direct your fan/hate mail.
