NFL Power Rankings Week 9: Could 49ers Still Be Best Team in NFC West?

Time for my NFL Power Rankings Week 9 edition, and I've got to tell you, the question in the title frightens me a little bit to even ponder.

Sure, the NFC Worst.....I mean, West, is the standard for futility in the NFL. But seriously? San Francisco the best team? Not a chance.

If I have to be keen on an NFC West team making the playoffs, I'm giving the nod to Seattle. Despite a blowout loss against Oakland last week, the Seahawks at 4-3 still have the best record in that division.

Sam Bradford is coming into his own in his rookie season for the St. Louis Rams, and Arizona is just a phone call to Kurt Warner away from being the best team in the division. I guess he'd have to give up his sweet dance moves to come back and actually complete a pass to Larry Fitzgerald, though.

That's enough talk about the NFC West. What you should really care about is there is some movement at the top of these rankings from last week because of losses by the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets.

So who is in the top spot this week? Read on.
