Even with four teams in the NFC having off this past week, there was still some outcomes that affected my rankings. Seattle was able to turnaround a disastrous start against Tampa Bay and inch out a victory in overtime against the still winless Buccaneers; keeping them at the top spot in the NFC. The Saints however, were not so lucky as they suffered a stunning loss to the New York Jets on the road and showed that Drew Brees is indeed human. More importantly, the Green Bay Packers were without their star QB Aaron Rodgers for a majority of their Monday night loss against the Chicago Bears and will lose Rodgers for several weeks with a broken collarbone; shaking up the rankings even more. Here are my NFC Power Rankings for week 9...

?1. Seattle Seahawks?(8-1):?The Seahawks have been cutting it close when it comes down to these games. Each week they have been on the brink of defeat, and this week was no different. Down 21 points to the winless Buccaneers, all signs pointed to Seattle facing their first defeat at home since 2011. But the Seahawks and QB Russell Wilson were able to muster up a stunning comeback and leave CenturyLink Stadium with an overtime victory, keeping their streak at home alive. This team has shown tremendous resilience when they needed it the most. RB Marshawn Lynch had?his way with the Tampa Bay defense, carrying the ball 21 times for 121 yards. Should?Seattle be worried? I don't think so.?The way the Seahawks have strung together this steak is amazing and?when their backs have been up against the wall, even?against teams like the Rams and Buccaneers, they have found a way to walk away with a victory. This team is STILL the cream of the crop in the NFC.?Ranking last week: 1

It looked like the tape was on repeat for the New York Giants defense last night against the Chicago Bears. Going into halftime, the team had allowed 24 points, two touchdowns to Bears' WR Brandon Marshall and a last second field goal that pushed Chicago's lead to 24-14.

But after it was all said and done,?Big Blue?only allowed another three points in the second half and kept QB Jay Cutler and the potent Bears offense, relatively in check. While the defense was able to stop the bleeding, it didn't transfer over to the offense and the Giants would ultimately lose their sixth straight game this season and remain winless, with the final score tallying 27-21.

The NFL will release its schedule tonight at 8 p.m. In honor of this annual occasion in which we mark our calendars and cancel plans in advance of the fall, here are the games we're looking forward the most in 2013.

1. Denver Broncos

It's not a question the most intriguing game of the 2013 schedule will be the Manning Bowl, pinning up brother against brother in one of the league's most cherished match-ups.

Let me preface this by saying that one time I banged my knee against the dinner table and still played in my two-hand-touch football league's consolation game the next day, so I'm something of an expert on knee injuries.

While watching the NFC Championship game yesterday, I was shocked to see Bears QB Jay Cutler, a supposed professional football player, quit on his team after sustaining a little injury to one of his two knees. The guy walked off the field, sat on the bench sulking like a toddler, and then even rode on an exercise bike. Last time I checked, if you're healthy enough to ride a bike, you're healthy enough to play quarterback in the NFL.

What happened to toughness in professional sports? What happened to guys playing through pain? Has the professional athlete really gotten this soft? What are we paying you millions of dollars for if you can't play through a potentially torn ACL?

Redskins' CB Ties NFL Record With 4 INTs

DeAngelo Hall has widely been considered a tad bit overpaid. He was one of those Daniel Snyder reaches that never really was worth the time and money.

Until today.
