NFL Week Four Power Rankings

Week 3 was full of upsets and surprises. This season is already looking like a weird but crazy one. These are my power rankings coming into week 4. 


  1. Miami Dolphins (3-0)

The Dolphins are looking really good. They are one of two of the last undefeated teams. Beating the Ravens and the Bills back to back. Tua is playing really good, and his receivers Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are definitely showing up. I really like where this team is going. Their offense has been pretty killer. 


  1. Philadelphia Eagles (3-0)

The Eagles are the only other team undefeated (Dolphins). Their offense is spectacular. Jaylen Hurts looks like an elite quarterback. He has so many weapons which also helps him a ton. The Eagles are on pace to be the best team in the league. It was really hard picking between the Dolphins and Eagles, call it a tie if you will.


  1. Buffalo Bills (2-1)

The Bills have been favored to win the Super Bowl coming into this season. They just took a tough loss to the Dolphins but it was really close. If they had just 3 more seconds, they most likely would have won. Josh Allen to Stefon Diggs is an immaculate connection almost every time. They have the best chemistry in the league. 


  1. Baltimore Ravens (2-1)

The Ravens are looking scary. Lamar Jackson is on pace to be a top candidate for Most Valuable Player. He can really do it all. He has weapons like Mark Andrews, Devin Duvernay, Rashod Bateman, and more. Dobbins made his season debut and once they start playing him more, it is going to be scary for the whole league. 


  1. Los Angeles Rams (2-1)

The defending Super Bowl Champions, LA Rams, lost their first game. They barely snuck by the Falcons. And just beat the Cardinals. They aren’t looking like they did last year but still really good. I’m sure they will get better as the season gets shorter. 


  1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-1)

The Chiefs are coming off a very tough loss against the Colts. They were rushed to kick a game-tying field goal. But Mahomes threw a pass and it was tipped right into the Colts defense and forced an interception. The Chiefs other two games have been amazing, they looked lethal and deadly, maybe this just a fluke week. 


  1. Minnesota Vikings (2-1)

The Vikings have been doing decent. They need to step up their game just a bit though because they have been cutting it close. Except for the Packers game, sorry A-Rod. They rank this high because they are 2-1 and because of the Packers game. But they need to get up higher. 

  1. Green Bay Packers (2-1)

The Packers started their season terrible after being blown out by the Vikings. But since then, it looks like they got things under control. They just got done beating the Buccaneers by two. Hopefully A-Rod finds his favorite target to help him through the season. 


  1. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1)

Yeah…the Jaguars are top 10 in this list and winning their division. What the heck. They have shockingly been pretty good. After losing to the Commanders in week one by six, they decided to be a Playoff team. They blew out the Colts 24-0, and the Chargers 38-10. Making the total of those last two games 62-10. WOW. If they can keep this up, they somehow have a legitimate chance. But they play the undefeated Eagles this week so we will see. 


  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1)

The Buccaneers are not doing the best. Sure they are 2-1, but in a kinda bad fashion. Tom Brady doesn’t look like himself. Now I am not saying he is washed, but it looks like the end of an era and his time. He still has the season to prove me wrong, but until then, he is done. 


  1. Dallas Cowboys (2-1)

The Cowboys lost Dak Prescott after week one but it did not phase them. The man that they call Cooper Rush is 2-0. He is saving the Cowboys. But Dak should be back this week. Hopefully Rush takes the starting job, I am kidding, maybe…


  1. Arizona Cardinals (1-2)

The Cardinals are currently 1-2 after some rather confusing games. They lost against the Chiefs and Rams, both pretty good teams so I get it. They did beat the Raiders after coming back 20-0. So I think they still have things to prove. 


  1. Los Angeles Chargers (1-2)

Justin Herbert and the Chargers were supposed to be a top team this year. They are 1-2 so far after losing to the Chiefs and Jaguars. They started off the season beating the Raiders. It is hard to say whether they will reach the potential they were supposed to have coming into the season. 


  1. Cincinnati Bengals (1-2)

Joe Burrow looked AWFUL in his first game after throwing four interceptions and losing a fumble. He also has a TERRIBLE offensive line. He is getting sacked WAY too many times. The Bengals NEED to do something about it if they want to make another Super Bowl run. 


  1. Tennessee Titans (1-2)

The Titans aren’t looking the greatest at all. Derrick Henry isn’t looking like the beast he was. Tannehill isn’t looking the best. They lost their weapons during the offseason. Overall, they have A LOT of work to do if they want a chance at the Playoffs. 

  1. Denver Broncos (2-1)

The Broncos are 2-1 but don’t really deserve it, and this is coming from a Broncos fan. They started off losing to the Seahawks. They have beat the Texans and 49ers but both in terrible fashion. Their defense looks amazing but the offense…not so much. Russell Wilson looks like a rookie right now. They need to do lots of work to keep going and make the playoffs. 


  1. San Francisco 49ers (1-2)

The 49ers have lost Trey Lance for the rest of the season. Jimmy Garoppolo did NOT look good this last game. Stepping out of bounds for a safety that was going to be a pick six anyway, wow. He needs to get his head in the game and they need to improve the offense because watching that game was torture. 


  1. Cleveland Browns (2-1)

The Browns should be 3-0 if they didn’t let the jets score 14 against them in the last two minutes, sorry but I had to. But Nick Chubb is carrying this team right now along with Amari Cooper. Cooper is fitting in really well already and I am glad because he deserves it. Hopefully they can keep things rolling. 


  1. New York Giants (2-1)

The Giants are 2-1 somehow as well. They have beat the Titans and Panthers. They just lost to Cooper Rush though so we will see how they do this weekend. Saquon has been looking pretty good. Sterling Shepard is now out for the rest of the season with a torn ACL. Danny No-Dimes is going to have to figure some things out. 


  1. Indianapolis Colts (1-1-1)

The Colts have tied, lost, and won in their first three games. They tied the Texans after trying to make a comeback, got blown out by the Jaguars 24 to zip, and just beat the Chiefs. I can’t tell if they are a good team or not. They play the Titans this week and they have to win to prove something. 


  1. New Orleans Saints (1-2)

The Saints beat the Falcons after they choked (typical Falcons fashion), but since then have lost to the Buccaneers and Panthers. Kamara is not playing the best and neither is pretty much all of their receivers. They definitely have work to do to get back to what they were with Brees. 


  1. Chicago Bears (2-1)

The lowest 2-1 team ranked on this list. I really believe in Justin Fields but it is hard after that last game. Sure they won but he made a lot of questionable throws. I thought he was going to be the best quarterback from his draft class but I don’t know anymore. I still have faith in him, he can turn his game around and start throwing some dots. We will see.


  1. Las Vegas Raiders (0-3)

The Raiders are one of only two winless teams and the only 0-3 team (Texans are 0-2-1). They were supposed to be really good this season with Adams but it is not working out. They started the season with a loss against the Chargers which is reasonable. The next game they had a 20-0 lead against the Cardinals and blew it. They just recently lost to the Titans. They need to do something because it is pretty embarrassing for them right now. They have a chance to show out this week against the Broncos, I feel like it is a must-win game. 


  1. New England Patriots (1-2)

The Patriots need to be WAY more explosive on the offensive side of the ball. They need to show out more. Their only win is against the 1-2 Steelers and they only won by three. They need to get something going in the nearby weeks. 


  1. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2)

Mitchell Trubisky is somehow still starting which is questionable. He is acting like a rookie and throwing awful passes and making questionable calls. Kenny Pickett should definitely get a chance by now but who knows? They have an opportunity to beat the Jets this week so let’s see what they can do. 


  1. Atlanta Falcons (1-2)

WARNING: THIS TYPING MIGHT BE A CHOKING HAZARD FOR SOME. Haha, I am only kidding…maybe. They actually got a win this week but it was only Geno Smith so nothing special. They could have two if they knew how to finish games. I don’t really see this team going anywhere in the near future. 


  1. Washington Commanders (1-2)

Carson Wentz isn’t even doing too terrible. Terry, Curtis, and Dotson are all playing really good. Their running game isn’t that bad. So where are they going wrong? The name change, definitely the name change. In all seriousness, they have a chance to shine against division rival, Dallas Cowboys. If they pull off a win this weekend, they could have a chance. 


  1. Seattle Seahawks (1-2)

Geno Smith has a quarterback rating better than Russell Wilson, I don’t know what you want to do with that information but oh well. They are in rebuild mode so it is no surprise they are down here in the rankings. Jamal Adams is out for the season too so maybe tanking is the right idea. 


  1. Carolina Panthers (1-2)

As much as I believed in Baker, I have almost lost faith. Maybe the browns made the right move in moving him. But we will really know once Watson gets back from all the massages he has been getting recently, oops. 


  1. New York Jets (1-2)

We live for the day when the Jets will crack a top 25 power ranking spot, but until then, they might as well get some pillows and a blanket and get real comfy at the bottom. But mom lover Zach Wilson is coming back this week so we get to see him throw some interceptions. 

  1. Houston Texans (0-2-1)

And last and very most definitely least, the Texans. There isn’t really much they can do to be honest. They are trying their best and it is still not working. So just like the Jets, get comfy down here. 


Now that I am done roasting, I mean ranking teams, it is almost time to watch some Thursday Night Football. So kick back, relax, and enjoy the Miami Dolphins @ Cincinnati Bengals only on Amazon Prime and probably some jailbreak websites. NOT SPONSORED LOL.
