NFL Power Rankings Week 5 – The Price Of Admission

Ab Stanley

The NFL can provide the average fan a different form of entertainment every game. Some weeks you get fast paced action and huge hits, while in other weeks you get sloppy play and injuries. Every game provides its own motion picture, but will it be worth the ticket?

Here’s to an entertaining first four weeks and more to come!

 

1. Philadelphia Eagles (4-0)
The Eagles have forced 10 total turnovers this season, while only giving it away twice. They lead the NFL in both categories.

 

2. Kansas City Chiefs (3-1)
Imagine people thought Kansas City’s offense wouldn’t be as potent this season. The Chiefs average 32.2 points per game so far this year.

 

3. Buffalo Bills (3-1)
The Bills can still play tough when they need to, despite the injuries they’ve suffered recently. It is very difficult to move the ball against them.

 

4. Minnesota Vikings (3-1)
Minnesota’s point differential is six points while their turnover differential is one. They’re not particularly great at anything so far, but hey three wins are still three wins.

 

5. Miami Dolphins (3-1)
The Dolphins will have to be extra cautious with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa going forward. Teddy Bridgewater will be under center for the time being.

 

6. Green Bay Packers (3-1)
The Packers are on a three game winning streak, outscoring their opponents 68-46 during that span.

 

7. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2)
The Buccaneers’ defense gave up more points to the Chiefs than all three of their other opponents combined.

 

8. Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
The undefeated Cooper Rush is doing it all. From making history to saving Mike McCarthy’s job…what a competitor.

 

9. New York Giants (3-1)
You might wonder how the Giants have three wins already. Their defense has allowed a total of five touchdowns in four games, and they lead the league by allowing only one rushing touchdown.

 

10. Baltimore Ravens (2-2)
Baltimore’s offense builds leads and Baltimore’s defense just gives them away. The Ravens have held the lead or been tied going into the fourth quarter of each of their games.

 

11. San Francisco 49ers (2-2)
The 49ers are ranked first in points allowed and and total yards allowed. They’ve only allowed one team to eclipse 100 yards rushing this season.

 

12. Los Angeles Rams (2-2)
Cooper Kupp has 54 targets and the next best wide receiver (Allen Robinson) has 18. They could definitely use another target on the outside.

 

13. Cincinnati Bengals (2-2)
The Bengals have outscored their opponents 54-27 on their current two game winning streak. They have forced six turnovers during that span.

 

14. Los Angeles Chargers (2-2)
The Chargers two wins have come against two teams that have combined for one victory on the season.

 

15. Tennessee Titans (2-2)
Tennessee has won two games in a row, scoring a combined 48 points in that span. They scored 37 points in their first two games combined.

 

16. Denver Broncos (2-2)
Denver continues to struggle on offense. They are ranked 30th in points scored. Actually the word ‘struggle’ might be an understatement.

 

17. Cleveland Browns (2-2)
Looking at their strength of schedule, I suspect Browns fans had all wins circled for their first four games. This of course did not happen.

 

18. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2)
Jacksonville shouldn’t feel too bad about losing to the Eagles, especially since Houston is their next opponent.

 

19. Arizona Cardinals (2-2)
Arizona has turned the ball over only two times this season and only once in their two victories.

 

20. Seattle Seahawks (2-2)
Geno Smith is averaging 259.3 passing yards per game with six touchdowns and only two interceptions. His magical season continues.

 

21. Chicago Bears (2-2)
The Bears are ranked third in rushing yards, but somehow 31st in points scored and total yards gained. Talk about your one sided offenses.

 

22. Atlanta Falcons (2-2)
Atlanta averages 25.7 points per game, mostly  due to their rushing attack. They unfortunately have Marcus Mariota at quarterback.

 

23. Detroit Lions (1-3)
Detroit has scored the most points in the league and given up the most points in the league. It’s like driving a Ferrari on four donut tires.

 

24. New York Jets (2-2)
Even the Jets fans didn’t think they’d have two wins this early in the season.

 

25. New Orleans Saints (1-3)
The Saints are on a three game losing streak and they have turned the ball over ten times during that stretch.

 

26. New England Patriots (1-3)
Will Bailey Zappe get his first start versus the Detroit Lions? At this point Bill Belichick has nothing to lose.

 

27. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-3)
Kenny Pickett started the third quarter on Sunday and proceeded to throw three interceptions. Despite the turnovers, the Steelers seemed to be better off with him under center.

 

28. Las Vegas Raiders (1-3)
The Raiders scored over 30 points for the first time this season and they didn’t allow a turnover. Not a coincidence they won their first game .

 

29. Washington Commanders (1-3)
In Carson Wentz’s first two games this season, he threw seven touchdown passes and had only three interceptions. In his last two games he has one touchdown pass and two interceptions.

 

30. Carolina Panthers (1-3)
Imagine being a Panthers fan and wondering how fast Sam Darnold can come back from injury to be the starting quarterback.

 

31. Indianapolis Colts (1-2-1)
The Colts have given the ball away nine times, while only forcing three turnovers on defense. They rank last in the league with an average of 14.3 points per game.

 

32. Houston Texans (0-3-1)
Houston has trouble moving the ball, while their opponents seem to have very little trouble moving the ball against them.
