Week 3 Football Power Rankings

With the games of Week 3 of the NFL regular season coming up soon, it is good to know where each football team stands, whether you simply want to cheer for your favorite team that has improved, or use the information to handicap more effectively. The Power Rankings are:

Team Week 3 Rank Previous Rank
New England Patriots 1 1
Green Bay Packers 2 2
Arizona Cardinals 3 5
Denver Broncos 4 4
Dallas Cowboys 5 3
Pittsburgh Steelers 6 11
Cincinnati Bengals 7 14
Kansas City Chiefs 8 7
Carolina Panthers 9 20
Atlanta Falcons 10 16
New York Jets 11 22
Seattle Seahawks 12 6
Miami Dolphins 13 10
Minnesota Vikings 14 18
San Diego Chargers 15 15
Buffalo Bills 16 8
St. Louis Rams 17 17
Indianapolis Colts 18 9
Baltimore Ravens 19 13
Philadelphia Eagles 20 12
Cleveland Browns 21 27
Detroit Lions 22 19
San Francisco 49ers 23 23
Oakland Raiders 24 30
Washington Redskins 25 29
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 26 30
New Orleans Saints 27 21
New York Giants 28 26
Jacksonville Jaguars 29 31
Tennessee Titans 30 24
Houston Texans 31 25
Chicago Bears 32 28

No one would have imagined that some of the top rated teams in the NFL would be so low on the Power Rankings, especially at the start of the season when the players are fresh and healthy. For instance, the Indianapolis Colts are quickly becoming the League’s most disappointing team; after all of the hype they received during the preseason, to see them lose two straight games with poor performances. We also see the Chicago Bears being last on the list, when many expected them to be big contenders this year.

Most are surprised to see the Seattle Seahawks doing so poorly as well. With the 2013 and 2014 season they proved to be a solid team, yet they are taking a long time getting warmed up. Among the top teams, we will see the number 1 spot change hands evenly between the New England Patriots and the Green Bay Packers, with the rest of the teams right on their heels. It is still too early to tell for sure, but if the NFL teams continue performing this way on the football field, we will have already picked the playoff match-ups.
