Unsurprisingly, the Washington Redskins held steady in CBS Sports' Week 6 NFL Power Rankings. While some other sites have moved the Redskins around after their bye week, CBS' Pete Prisco has left the Redskins at No. 8, which is where he had them last week. Here's Prisco's blurb on the Redskins:
They come off the bye looking down at the rest of the NFC East. Who would have imagined that?
Prisco, of course, is referring to the losses by the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles last week. The loss by the Giants to the Seattle Seahawks moved the Redskins into sole possession of first place in the NFC East. Prisco dropped the Giants one spot to No. 11 and the Eagles one spot to No. 21. The Dallas Cowboys remained at No. 12 after also being on a bye.
