Hot or Not: Week 7 NWSL Power Rankings

Warning:

This power ranking is not reactionary.

This power ranking takes outside factors like weather and injuries into account.

It has bias—yours when you read it and mine when I wrote it.

Enjoy it.

It will soon change.


Some Notes:

North Carolina somehow finds a way to win every week. It really is something. 

Seattle has gotten Rapinoe back and they look to be in peak form themselves. 

Orlando moving up 4 spots is more of a course correction from me than anything. The team looked sharp against Portland without Marta even needing to be on the pitch. 

As I am ranking teams it feels like there is a huge space after North Carolina and Seattle. And a second, though smaller, space between Orlando and Utah. The middle of the table is pretty bunched together.
