Eli leads giant comeback


Are you ready for some football?

Football is the featured sport in this week's power rankings as Eli Manning, Alex Smith, Geno Smith and Reggie Bush took four of the top five spots. Manning led another late-game comeback (his specialty), Alex continued to show why his name should be included in elite QB talks, Geno had a near-perfect game and Reggie Bush looked like the running back we all know he can be.

In non-football related news, Jiyai Shin dominated the final round of the Women's British Open to capture her second title since 2008 in record fashion, and Sergio Martinez battered and bruised Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. for majority of Saturday night's fight in route to capturing the WBC middleweight title.

That's how our panel ranked them, but do you agree? Let your voice be heard in the comments, and if you impress the panel, you could be chosen as a guest ranker for next week.

2012 Cross-Sport Power Rankings panel: Sara Walsh, John Buccigross, Robert Flores, Michael Smith, Bram Weinstein, Mike Hill, Jorge Andres, Charissa Thompson, DJ Gallo, Jim Basquil, Kevin Connors, Jeff MacGregor and Steve Weissman.
