NFL Power Rankings Week Four – A Restless Spirit

Ab Stanley

The NFL season is heating up and teams are starting to show their strengths and weaknesses. We have three undefeated teams and four winless teams left. Everybody else is crammed in the middle trying to sort things out. The next few weeks will be critical for most of the NFL and health (as usual) will play a big part.


1. San Francisco 49ers (3-0)
The 49ers’ defense is now allowing 14.0 points per game. They’ve allowed a total of four touchdowns this season.


2. Philadelphia Eagles (3-0)
The Eagles lead the NFC in rushing yards, reeling off 185.7 yards per game. They’re averaging 4.9 yards per carry.


3. Miami Dolphins (3-0)
Their offensive success and recent defensive potency is not the most impressive thing about the Dolphins. Tua Tagovailoa has been sacked a total of one time all season. That’s impressive.


4. Kansas City Chiefs (2-1)
The Chiefs 41 point outburst on Sunday might’ve put the rest of the league on notice. Are they back to business or was it the competition?


5. Buffalo Bills (2-1)
Buffalo has scored a total of nine offensive touchdowns and they’re second in the league in scoring, averaging 30.3 points per game.


6. Cleveland Browns (2-1)
The Browns are allowing a league low 10.7 points per game and a total of three touchdowns this season. They’re allowing 111.7 passing yards per game, which is also the lowest in the league.


7. Detroit Lions (2-1)
The Lions have outscored their opponents by nine total points. They’ve turned the ball over five times and forced only two turnovers on the season. They have a bunch of kinks to work out if they want to be real contenders.


8. Dallas Cowboys (2-1)
The Cowboys gave up a total of 10 points and 172 rushing yards in the first two weeks of the season. They gave up 28 points and 222 rushing yards to Arizona on Sunday.


9. Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
Lamar Jackson is averaging 202.7 passing yards per game. This whole new offense where he’s supposed to be a better passer isn’t working out so well.


10. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1)
The Buccaneers had zero turnovers in their two game winning streak to start the season. They had two turnovers in their loss on Monday night.


11. New Orleans Saints (2-1)
The Saints’ defense has yet to allow 20 points in a game so far this season. Their offense has struggled, but the return of Alvin Kamara should help them in that department.


12. Atlanta Falcons (2-1)
The Falcons’ defense can’t withstand the futility of their offense’s passing game for too much longer. If the Falcons can’t run the football they will have a hard time winning games.


13. Green Bay Packers (2-1)
The Packers have turned the ball over once this season and they’re one point away from being undefeated.


14. Seattle Seahawks (2-1)
Seattle has won its last two games, scoring exactly 37 points in each contest. They are now ranked fourth with 87 total points on the season.


15. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
Jacksonville scored 31 points in week one and they’ve scored a total of 26 points in the last two weeks. They have scored six offensive touchdowns, but they’ve also turned the ball over a total of five times this season.


16. Washington Commanders (2-1)
The Commanders have given up over 30 points in their last two games after allowing only 16 points in week one.


17. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1)
George Pickens has come on strong in the last two games. He has a total of 202 receiving yards and a touchdown in the Steelers two victories.


18. Indianapolis Colts (2-1)
The Colts have won two games in a row averaging 26.5 points per game. They haven’t turned the ball over during that stretch.


19. Los Angeles Rams (1-2)
The Rams haven’t rushed for over 100 yards in any game this season. Sean McVay has been a little too heavy with the passing attempts.


20. Las Vegas Raiders (1-2)
The Raiders have turned the ball over seven times and scored a total of five offensive touchdowns this season. None of those touchdowns are of the rushing variety.


21. New England Patriots (1-2)
The Patriots have uncharacteristically turned the ball over multiple times in the first two weeks. They had no turnovers on Sunday and (what do you know) they earned their first win of the season.


22. New York Jets (1-2)
The Jets have signed Trevor Siemian as an insurance policy in case they need to move on from Zach Wilson as a starter. Seems like the kind of insurance you get out of the back of a van.


23. Cincinnati Bengals (1-2)
The Bengals barely squeaked out their first win of the season. They’re still struggling on offense, scoring a total of three offensive touchdowns this season.


24. s Los Angeles Chargers (1-2)
The Chargers are fifth in points scored and second in total yards. The defense is like a reverse version of the offense. They are the fifth worst team in points allowed and the second worst team in total yards allowed.


25. Tennessee Titans (1-2)
The Titans’ offensive futility returns after a one week hiatus. They had 94 yards of total offense on Sunday.


26. New York Giants (1-2)
The Giants have scored a total of 43 points and five offensive touchdowns this season. The good news is those aren’t the worst totals in the NFL right now.


27. Houston Texans (1-2)
The Texans have finally broken through for their first win of the season. They’ll have to find a way to run the football more – they’re averaging 70.0 rushing yards a game.


28. Arizona Cardinals (1-2)
The Cardinals played close games in weeks one and two, but couldn’t break through for a win. It all came together on Sunday with 400 yards of total offense and 28 points (both season highs).


29. Minnesota Vikings (0-3)
The Vikings have nine passing touchdowns and zero rushing touchdowns. They also have nine turnovers, which is the most in the NFL.


30. Denver Broncos (0-3)
Denver lost a NFL game by 50 points. Should we even elaborate here?


31. Chicago Bears (0-3)
The Bears have scored less points every week and they haven’t stopped turning the ball over. They are averaging two turnovers a game.


32. Carolina Panthers (0-3)
The Panthers have not looked good at all outside of a few quarters. They actually looked better in the passing game with Andy Dalton at quarterback, but still couldn’t come a way with the win.
