NFL Power Rankings

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 7Week 3 in the NFL was something else. We started on Thursday night with a combined EIGHTY points being scored between…the 49ers and Rams?? We then saw old man Larry Fitzgerald recapture his GOAT form on Monday Night Football.  This whole week was kind of like being in the UpSideDown from the Netflix series Stranger Things. Yes, I’m pretty late to the party, but that show is awesome. You could recognize things around you, but everything felt foreign and not right. You could watch the games and know it was football, but the results didn’t make sense with what we thought we knew three weeks ago. The Rams, Jaguars, Bills, Jets, Colts(without Andrew Luck), and Bears all won in the same week. Needless to say, that parley would have paid off handsomely for our gambling friends. The Ranks definitely got shaken up after a whacky Week 3.

Atlanta Falcons

Power Ranking: 1

  • Last Week: 1
  • Record: 3-0
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Detroit Lions, 30-28
  • Week 4: Versus Buffalo Bills

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 8All three of the Falcon victories haven’t been exactly pretty, but all that matters is how many you have at the end of the year. The scary part for the rest of the league is QB Matt Ryan, and WR Julio Jones haven’t really put up any big games to this point. The defense will certainly miss Vic Beasley while he is out. The rest of the NFC South looks like a pretty mediocre bunch, and the Falcons could probably cruise to a division title. If Ryan gets back to 2016 levels, look out. The Bills have to travel to Atlanta in Week 4.

Kansas City Chiefs

Power Ranking: 2

  • Last Week: 5
  • Record: 3-0
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Los Angeles Chargers, 24-10
  • Week 4: versus Washington Redskins

This Kareem Hunt kid is not bad, huh? The first three games have been an absolute showcase for the rookie phenom. 538 total yards and six touchdowns later, Hunt is the engine making the offense hum for Kansas City. WR Tyreek Hill and TE Travis Kelce have been up and down so far, and they probably need to be more consistent as the season rolls on. It’s unreasonable to expect Hunt to be this good the rest of the way. The defense has played well without safety Eric Berry. Coach Andy Reid and QB Alex Smith still may have questions about being able to win a title, but they have looked excellent through three weeks this year. An odd pairing of the Chiefs versus Washington is on Monday Night Football this week.

New England Patriots

Power Ranking: 3

  • Last Week: 4
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Houston Texans, 36-33
  • Week 4: versus Carolina Panthers

Tom Brady FantasyThe Patriots are kind of a baffling team to me. They got smacked by the Chiefs, smoked the Saints, and needed QB Tom Brady to bail them out for a win versus the Texans. Brady went for 5 TDs on Sunday, and the opening night debacle seems like a pretty long time ago. Brady and WR Brandin Cooks got rolling which is a big piece of the offense without Julian Edelman. The New England defense is turning into a real problem. They made a rookie QB look pretty good on their home turf. Brady is going to need to throw for 4 or 5 touchdowns a game if they can’t figure things out. The defense gets the woeful(so far) Carolina offense next week.

Tennessee Titans

Power Ranking: 4

  • Last Week: 8
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Seattle Seahawks, 33-27
  • Week 4: at Houston Texans

Don’t let the final score fool you, Tennessee had this game well in hand. The Titans have a very average defense, but the offense finally started to chug the way some thought before the year started. The run game did its job behind DeMarco Murray and his huge 75 yard TD run. His hamstring appeared healthy, and Derrick Henry will likely be on the backburner for a little while longer. QB Marcus Mariota and WR Rishard Matthews continue to be a great duo and TE Jonnu Smith is making the most of his limited work thus far. When rookie WR Corey Davis gets healthy, this passing game could reach new heights. They face another tough defense next week in Houston.

Green Bay Packers

Power Ranking: 5

  • Last Week: 6
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Cincinnati Bengals, 27-24
  • Week 4: versus Chicago Bears

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 9Green Bay is yet another team that didn’t gain many style points with their win on Sunday. They had to squeak by in OT versus the winless Bengals, and there was one point where QB Aaron Rodgers was seen swearing at Coach Mike McCarthy for his playcalling. The defense will lean towards liability more than a strength most weeks. Green Bay is most likely just trying to get through a short week since they are injury riddled and play on Thursday Night Football versus the Bears. Rodgers and WR Jordy Nelson should be able to navigate the team through this rough stretch, and the Packers are hoping RB Ty Montgomery will pick it back up Thursday.

Minnesota Vikings

Power Ranking: 6

  • Last Week: 10
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 34-17
  • Week 4: versus Detroit Lions

Maybe one of the better stats to prove that Week 3 was kind of nutty is QB Case Keenum went over 300 yards passing. WR Stefon Diggs bounced back from his quiet Week 2 for a monster game, accounting for over 150 yards and 2 TDs. Rookie RB Dalvin Cook is proving everyone who lowered him due to an average combine showing wrong. The defense continues to be pretty darn good, led by CB Xavier Rhodes. The Vikings have high-end talent at multiple levels of the team and are one QB away from being elite. An interesting test in the Lions comes to Minnesota next week. Hopefully, for the Vikings, Sam Bradford is recovered from his knee injury.

Philadelphia Eagles

Power Ranking: 7

  • Last Week: 9
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus New York Giants, 27-24
  • Week 4: at Los Angeles Chargers

The Eagles just got by the Giants this week, needing a 61-yard field goal at the end of the game to get the job done. QB Carson Wentz continues to progress, and the running game continues to be confusing. LeGarrette Blount as back to being involved after getting zero carries in Week 2. The Eagles need to get better play out of their secondary to get to where they want to go. The rash of injuries they’re suffering isn’t helping either, but they are 2-0 in the division. That’s going to go a long way at the end of the year. Philly goes across the country to a Chargers team still searching for their first win.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Power Ranking: 8

  • Last Week: 2
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Chicago Bears, 23-17
  • Week 4: at Baltimore Ravens

If you’ve watched the Steelers under Coach Mike Tomlin, you probably should’ve seen this game coming. Pittsburgh was on the road versus a bad opponent. The Steelers have a lengthy history of playing down to opponents and losing games it has no business losing. QB Ben Roethlisberger was just a bit off all day long. WR Martavis Bryant dropped a long touchdown on the first play of the game and was never a factor the rest of the way. RB Le’veon Bell still doesn’t look quite right from his holdout. A lot of offenses around the NFL started to hit their stride in Week 3, but the Steelers are lagging behind except for WR Antonio Brown.  The defense should be embarrassed they couldn’t stop the run when that’s the only weapon Chicago had. Next up is a road date versus a bad team as they go to Baltimore for a divisional showdown.

[the_ad id=”65749″][the_ad id=”66090″]

Oakland Raiders

Power Ranking: 9

  • Last Week: 3
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Washington Redskins, 27-10
  • Week 4: at Denver Broncos

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 10The Raiders lost by 17 points on Sunday, and it wasn’t even that close. Washington came out and destroyed Oakland on every level of play. If not for some garbage time yards, Oakland would have been held under 100 total yards of offense. QB Derek Carr looked spooked after two early interceptions and Washington was able to get to him by sacking him repeatedly. WRs Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree were nonexistent, and RB Marshawn Lynch did absolutely nothing on the ground. The defense was a continued weak spot as it was gashed all night through the passing game. In short, this was a total disaster of a game. It doesn’t get any easier this week for the offense as the Raiders have to go to Denver.

Detroit Lions

Power Ranking: 10 

  • Last Week: 13
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Atlanta Falcons, 30-26
  • Week 4: at Minnesota Vikings

The Lions may have lost this game, but they gave the Falcons all they wanted. It was also just a matter of inches between a Golden Tate touchdown with under 10 seconds left and a loss. The defense did give up 30 points, but they also forced three interceptions. QB Matthew Stafford is a one-man offense because there is zero running game threat. It depends on who you ask as to why. Some people feel like RB Ameer Abdullah just isn’t very good while others believe it’s more of an offensive line issue. It’s most likely a bit of both, but Stafford is a QB that can make up for it. The Lions still look like a legitimate NFC playoff team and are hoping the concussion to LB Jarrad Davis doesn’t hold him out of the Week 4 divisional matchup at Minnesota.

Dallas Cowboys

Power Ranking: 11

  • Last Week: 12
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Arizona Cardinals, 28-17
  • Week 4: versus Los Angeles Rams

Credit to Dallas for winning a game they should win on the road. I wonder how the game would have gone if the Cardinals had a reasonable offensive line, but Dallas shouldn’t apologize for that. WR Dez Bryant and QB Dak Prescott haven’t really gone off yet. He’s also had to deal with CBs Janoris Jenkins, Aqib Talib, and Patrick Peterson. Better games are coming. A possible suspension still hangs over RB Ezekiel Elliott and the offensive line isn’t as good as it was last season. Dallas and Philly should be fighting for the NFC East until the end of the year. A fun matchup with the Rams is on deck.

Washington Redskins

Power Ranking: 12

  • Last Week: 17
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Oakland Raiders, 27-10
  • Week 4: at Kansas City Chiefs

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 11After calling them mediocre for the first two weeks, Washington showed up big in a national spotlight game Sunday night. They punched the Raiders square in the teeth and flat out destroyed them. QB Kirk Cousins got on track with 350+ yards and 3 TDs. This was without any real contributions from WRs Terrelle Pryor or Jamison Crowder. With RB Rob Kelley and TE Jordan Reed both sidelined with an injury, RB Chris Thompson was the star of the offense, accumulating 150+ yards from scrimmage. The Raiders probably saw him running around while they were flying home. The defense was led by CB Josh Norman and looked like an aggressive and cohesive unit. Monday Night Football in week 4 looks like a fun game between Washington and Kansas City.

Houston Texans

Power Ranking: 13

  • Last Week: 15
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus New England Patriots, 36-33
  • Week 4: versus Tennessee Titans

In all honesty, I’m not totally happy having the Texans this high. They are just 1-2 with a bad loss to Jacksonville on the resume. However, it gets extremely difficult to separate teams in this range. I feel like the Texans still have a pretty good defense, but this is mostly about Deshaun Watson. The rookie QB was written off against Bill Belichick by many(including me) but he was fantastic on Sunday. If he can continue to grow at a rapid rate, the Texans could play with a lot of teams in the NFL. The offense still needs either a secondary receiving threat or a better run game, but the Texans could still make a run at the AFC South. That starts this week when the Titans come to town.

Los Angeles Rams

Power Ranking: 14

  • Last Week: 19
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus San Francisco 49ers, 41-39
  • Week 4: at Dallas Cowboys

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 12Three games into the season and QB Jared Goff is showing why he was the number one overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He sits sixth in passing yards, has a 5/1 TD/INT ratio and just slightly over 10 yards per attempt. Not only has Coach Sean McVay helped Goff turn into a real QB, he has made Todd Gurley a dual-threat running back. Gurley is constantly involved in the passing game. If Sammy Watkins can replicate his 100 yards and 2 TD performance on a regular basis, this offense is dangerous. Defensive coordinator Wade Phillips needs to get the defense in line, but they have the talent to play better. It’s only a three-week sample, but the Rams are the best team in the NFC West right now. They travel to Dallas next week.

Seattle Seahawks

Power Ranking: 15

  • Last Week: 7
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Tennessee Titans, 33-27
  • Week 4: versus Indianapolis Colts

I’m sort of hoping nobody remembers I picked the Seahawks to go to the Super Bowl at this point. Russell Wilson finally got on track this week with 300+ yards and 4 TDs, but it ultimately didn’t matter. WR Doug Baldwin was in the middle of a monster game before leaving with a groin injury. He’s due for an MRI and that would be a massive blow to the Seahawks. Seattle has found their starting RB in Chris Carson. It’s too bad their offensive line is so bad. Perhaps most mystifying is the defense. They have been gouged by Carlos Hyde and DeMarco Murray in consecutive weeks. They need a win against the short-handed Colts badly this upcoming week.

[the_ad id=”74098″][the_ad id=”74046″]

Jacksonville Jaguars

Power Ranking: 16

  • Last Week: 23
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Baltimore Ravens, 44-7
  • Week 4: at New York Jets

Blake BortlesOne team that played this game looked like they were perfectly comfortable playing in London and one team looked like they hadn’t gotten on the plane yet. The Jaguars smoked the Ravens as badly as possible. This Jaguar defense is no joke. They have playmakers at all three levels and forced what is possibly the worst performance from QB Joe Flacco we’ve ever seen. The equation for Jacksonville seems simple three weeks in. If they can impose their will defensively, run the ball with Leonard Fournette and hide Blake Bortles, they win. If the can’t and they have to rely on Bortles to make plays, they lose. They stand a good chance of being on the right side of that formula this week versus the Jets.

Denver Broncos

Power Ranking: 17

  • Last Week: 11
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Buffalo Bills, 26-16
  • Week 4: versus Oakland Raiders

Just when it seemed the Broncos had turned a corner and looked like a Super Bowl contender, they go on the road and lay an egg. Buffalo might be better than I thought after the trades of WR Sammy Watkins and CB Ronald Darby, but this is a game Denver should win. RB C.J. Anderson was bottled up after his massive game against the Cowboys and QB Trevor Siemian threw two costly interceptions. To see the Denver defense give up so many points to a very limited offense is disappointing. Denver will most likely be contending for a playoff spot, but this performance makes me question how high their ceiling is. We’re going to find out a lot about both the Raiders and Broncos this Sunday.

Carolina Panthers

Power Ranking: 18

  • Last Week: 14
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus New Orleans Saints, 34-13
  • Week 4: at New England Patriots

The Panthers defense came back down to Earth this week and unfortunately for them, the offense led by QB Cam Newton is an utter wreck at the moment. Yes, WR Kelvin Benjamin left very early with a leg injury. Yes, they are missing TE Greg Olsen to a broken foot. This is still the Saints defense and Newton turned in a putrid line of 17-of-26 passes for 167 yards, zero touchdowns, and three interceptions. That is beyond ghastly against one of the worst defenses in the league on your home field. Newton seems clearly not himself after shoulder surgery. Is it possible he could get benched until he’s healthy? There are no reports suggesting this, but the Panthers should consider this until he’s back to being himself. This team is going nowhere right now and have to figure out how to shut down Tom Brady at New England this week.

Arizona Cardinals

Power Ranking: 19

  • Last Week: 22
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Dallas Cowboys, 28-17
  • Week 4: versus San Francisco 49ers

I know the Cardinals shouldn’t normally be moving up off of a loss, but the teams behind them were even worse than Arizona this week. The lone bright spot for the Cards Monday night was WR Larry Fitzgerald. The ageless wonder made catch after catch while getting no help from basically any other player on the offense. QB Carson Palmer can still sling it more than I thought. The offensive line doesn’t allow him to do it very often. The defense isn’t as feared as it used to be. The franchise isn’t in a very good spot right now, present or future. They need a win when the 49ers are in Arizona this week.

[the_ad id=”63633″]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Power Ranking: 20

  • Last Week: 16
  • Record: 1-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Minnesota Vikings, 34-17
  • Week 4: versus New York Giants

All of the good vibes from the thrashing of the Bears last week went up in smoke this week for Tampa. QB Case Keenum lit up their defense and they had no real run game to speak of. One reason I wasn’t totally sold on the Bucs coming into the year is that I don’t fully believe QB Jameis Winston is quite the franchise QB some think. Granted, this was no easy matchup. The Minnesota defense is very good. However, when WR Mike Evans is being held in check, this offense will most likely struggle. They will welcome back RB Doug Martin after one more game and then we’ll see how good the offense can be. The defense will be searching for answers when Eli Manning and the Giants come to Tampa this week.

New Orleans Saints

Power Ranking: 21

  • Last Week: 25
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Carolina Panthers, 34-13
  • Week 4: at Miami Dolphins

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 13The offense put up over 30 points and the Saints won. That will probably be a familiar refrain for the rest of the season because I put no stock into the defensive performance. It says more about QB Cam Newton than it does the defense. WR Michael Thomas finally broke out this week, finding the end zone and being a nightmare to cover. The Adrian Peterson signing continues to be possibly the worst of this past off-season. The Saints were up for the vast majority of the game and 11 points entering the fourth quarter. Peterson carried the ball 9 times. As usual, this team will only go as far as QB Drew Brees can pull it. They get a very beatable team in Miami this week, but DO have to make the London trip.

Chicago Bears

Power Ranking: 22

  • Last Week: 27
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Pittsburgh Steelers, 23-17
  • Week 4: at Green Bay Packers

Have I underestimated the Bears? They’re one Jordan Howard drop away from being 2-1 with victories over Atlanta and Pittsburgh to their credit. QB Mike Glennon isn’t scaring anyone. To his small defense, his receiving corps is an injury away from playing Joe Anyone from a Chicago street corner at WR. The running game with Howard and rookie Tarik Cohen is the team’s bread and butter. Their defense makes the most out of their lack of talent on that side of the ball, largely thanks to coordinator Vic Fangio. The Bears have to go to Lambeau Field on a short week, which is no easy task.

Indianapolis Colts

Power Ranking: 23

  • Last Week: 29
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Cleveland Browns, 31-28
  • Week 4: at Seattle Seahawks

The Colts offense actually looked functional with QB Jacoby Brissett this week. While the Cleveland defense had plenty to do with that, it’s encouraging to see Brissett and WR T.Y. Hilton connect for a big game. Brissett also added two rushing scores. He actually gave a glimmer of hope he can keep the seat warm for Andrew Luck. Make no mistake, this team is still very bad. Their defense isn’t any good and the offense won’t be that far above average even with Luck. I’m not sure if WR Donte Moncrief has even played this season. Traveling to Seattle is likely not going to be a fun time for Indy this week.

Miami Dolphins

Power Ranking: 24

  • Last Week: 20
  • Record: 1-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus New York Jets, 20-6
  • Week 4: versus New Orleans Saints

I wanted to put the Dolphins much lower after they got embarrassed by the Jets. That’s just inexcusable for a Dolphin team that wants to get to the postseason. They would have been shutout if not for a DeVante Parker TD as time expired. If this is the kind of offense they can produce when RB Jay Ajayi can’t get it going, teams will totally sell out to stop the run and take their chances. QB Jay Cutler looked awful all day and they don’t have the talent on defense to make up for a poor offensive effort very often. They get another cupcake defense this week against New Orleans, but I’m not 100% sure they can take advantage. It is worth pointing out that Miami has had to go to LA, Net York, and now London in 3 weeks.

[the_ad id=”71996″]

Los Angeles Chargers

Power Ranking: 25

  • Last Week: 21
  • Record: 0-3
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Kansas City Chiefs, 24-10
  • Week 4: versus Philadelphia Eagles

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 14The Chargers have been a huge disappointment for me this season. I thought the defense had a solid foundation for success and QB Philip Rivers had one more really good season in him, at least. DE Joey Bosa and LB Melvin Ingram are a dynamic duo, but the rest of the defense hasn’t played very well. Rivers continues to throw the ball to the other team and are we sure RB Melvin Gordon is good? He gets a lot of volume and is always heavily involved but the results are sometimes underwhelming. This team just hasn’t clicked and is now 3 games behind division leader Kansas City and the Chiefs already have a win over them. Not a great formula and the plucky Eagles team are up next.

San Francisco 49ers

Power Ranking: 26

  • Last Week: 26
  • Record: 0-3
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Los Angeles Rams, 41-39
  • Week 4: at Arizona Cardinals

San Francisco may not have the talent to be where they want to go yet, but they’re fighting hard each game. They stuck in this one and made it a game late. QB Brian Hoyer isn’t very good and when Coach Kyle Shanahan finds his QB, this team could be pretty fun. RB Carlos Hyde is a grown man; he was doing some hard work Thursday night. When he’s healthy, he’s a great back in the league. The defense has some young building blocks. It’s not going to come together this year, but early returns under the new regime have provided a glimmer of hope. They travel to a reeling Arizona squad next week.

Baltimore Ravens

Power Ranking: 27

  • Last Week: 18
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Jacksonville Jaguars, 44-7
  • Week 4: versus Pittsburgh Steelers

I’m at least 45% certain that Baltimore didn’t actually go to London. They must have sent some look a likes to play instead of the actual football team. This was a beatdown of epic proportions. The Ravens made Blake Bortles and Marcedes Lewis look like Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham when they were both in New Orleans. If you even knew Lewis’ name before Sunday morning, you are indeed a hardcore NFL fan. QB Joe Flacco was so bad it’s hard to describe. They had no run game, no passing game and couldn’t stop Jacksonville at all. They now have to get off the plane to face a bitter rival when Pittsburgh comes to Baltimore.

New York Giants

Power Ranking: 28

  • Last Week: 24
  • Record: 0-3
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Philadelphia Eagles, 27-24
  • Week 4: at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Giants actually found their passing game this week, but it came in one quarter of football. It also came against a Philly secondary that was missing a whopping four starters. Lastly, it still didn’t result in a win. They still couldn’t get anything resembling a running game going. While the defense is good, I’m not sure where any other strength is on this team outside WR Odell Beckham. It could be a very long season in New York. The Giants and Jets might end up combining for single-digit wins. New York has to go to Tampa to face a Buccaneers squad looking for a rebound.

Buffalo Bills

Power Ranking: 29

  • Last Week: 31
  • Record: 2-1
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Denver Broncos, 26-16
  • Week 4: at Atlanta Falcons

I’m sure any Bills fans will chirp me for still having them so low but I’m not buying this win as anything other than a big anomaly. QB Tyrod Taylor deserves a ton of credit for his play this week considering the stout Denver defense and their lack of passing weapons. Even more impressive was the fact that RB LeSean McCoy was held in check for the second straight week. The defense is playing better than I thought they would be capable of. I don’t expect them to go to Atlanta and win, but if they can hang with the Falcons, they’ll deserve to get bumped up.

Cincinnati Bengals

Power ranking: 30

  • Last Week: 30
  • Record: 0-3
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Green Bay Packers, 27-24
  • Week 4: at Cleveland Browns

NFL Power Rankings Week 4 15The Bengals did show some signs of life in Green Bay, taking the Packers to overtime. Still, this team doesn’t seem quite right. QB Andy Dalton and WR AJ Green finally got on the same page, but the offense was without rookie WR John Ross and TE Tyler Eifert…again. Eifert may miss multiple weeks with a back injury which isn’t going to help anyone on this offense. The defense is just kind of there. DL Geno Atkins is a great player and that’s about it so far. If the Bengals can’t get a win in Cleveland, that could mark the end for Coach Marvin Lewis.

Cleveland Browns

Power Ranking: 31

  • Last Week: 28
  • Record: 0-3
  • Week 3 result: Loss versus Indianapolis Colts, 31-28
  • Week 4: versus Cincinnati Bengals

Even when the Browns are favored by Las Vegas, they still can’t get a win. Rookie DeShone Kizer continues to flash some potential, but he’s not being helped by many players on that offense. His receiving corps is beat up and the 1-2 punch of Isaiah Crowell and Duke Johnson hasn’t panned out the way people thought. The defense just got done being scorched by Jacoby Brissett. That is really not a good look. The Browns could still the corner this year, but it doesn’t seem like it will happen soon. Somebody has to walk away with their first win this week between Cleveland and Cincy.

New York Jets

Power Ranking: 32

  • Last Week: 32
  • Record: 1-2
  • Week 3 result: Win versus Miami Dolphins, 20-6
  • Week 4: versus Jacksonville Jaguars

Yes, I know the Jets actually won a game. I also don’t care enough to lift them out of dead last…yet. Let’s see if they can beat a second team before we go crazy. This week was more about the Dolphins than it was the Jets. They do get credit for shutting down RB Jay Ajayi but that’s about it. The Jaguars and their defense will most likely make the Jets look pretty bad this upcoming week.
