Power Rankings: Week 4

In the interest of full disclosure, I’m posting our in-house power rankings that is used to feed the model. These rankings are projections for each team for the given week, with injury adjustments if they might be without a key contributor for the week.

  1. Kansas City Chiefs – I am so so sorry for ever insulting the Chiefs by listing them number 2 last week.
  2. Baltimore Ravens – Lamar Jackson is better at throwing the ball then we saw Monday Night. He’ll be back.
  3. Pittsburgh Steelers – this defense is real, and it’s spectacular.
  4. Seattle Seahawks – I don’t care that Chris Carson is injured.
  5. Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Hey Tom Brady, I hope you enjoyed having Godwin and Evans on the field together for a few plays. Godwin will likely miss with a hamstring injury.
  6. Indianapolis Colts – Don’t look now, but the Colts are the top team per Football Outsider’s DVOA.
  7. New Orleans Saints – Michael Thomas looks ready to return. It is very needed.
  8. Green Bay Packers – Yes, Aaron Rodgers is still back.
  9. Los Angeles Rams – I’m not over last week’s loss either.
  10. Dallas Cowboys – That’s a tough loss to a very good Seahawks team. They get the Browns for a much needed get right spot.
  11. San Francisco 49ers – George Kittle is likely ready to return, but this team is still very injured.
  12. New England Patriots – for a team that likes to run the ball, the offensive line was extremely good last week, even without their starting center.
  13. Tennessee Titans – The inventors of Tuesday Night football?
  14. Buffalo Bills – I gave Josh Allen crap for feasting on the Dolphins and Bills, but he played very well against a solid Rams defense. Credit where credit is due.
  15. Arizona Cardinals – DeAndre Hopkins has 7 more receptions than any player in the NFL. We’ve played 3 games.
  16. Chicago Bears – The Bears had a nice comeback win by deploying a bold strategy of playing their best quarterback.
  17. Atlanta Falcons – Playing a full 4 quarters is for losers.
  18. Detroit Lions – that secondary needs Desmond Trufant back.
  19. Houston Texans – 0-3, but they lead off with the teams I have ranked 1-3.
  20. Los Angeles Chargers – they lost to the Panthers.
  21. Philadelphia Eagles – their quarterback has the yips, their entire receiving core (minus Zach Ertz is hurt), and they have San Francisco, Pittsburgh, then Baltimore next.
  22. Cleveland Browns – the offensive line is sneaky playing very well.
  23. Los Vegas Raiders – nobody actually believed their 2-0 record, right?
  24. Minnesota Vikings – time to pin their hopes on Justin Jefferson.
  25. Jacksonville Jaguars – the mustache falters, we march on.
  26. Cincinnati Bengals – improving this dreadful offensive line isn’t just a team need, it’s a matter of keeping the star QB safe.
  27. Miami Dolphins – Fitzmagic with a nice reminder that his ceiling is as high as anybody’s.
  28. New York Giants – dropping 9 points against a very injured 49ers team at home? Nice.
  29. Washing Football Team – looking at them putting up 20 points. How cute.
  30. Carolina Panthers – How could you possibly when without your starting running back?
  31. New York Jets – Thursday Night
  32. Denver Broncos – Fuck Show
