September 24th, 2013 - 7:32 pm
Here’s a look at my NFL power rankings for Week 4 of the 2013 season.
RANK. TEAM NAME (PREVIOUS RANK)(RECORD)
- Denver Broncos (1)(3-0) — They just keep rolling, this time cruising past the Raiders.
- Seattle Seahawks (2)(3-0) — As expected, they beat up on the Jaguars at home.
- New England Patriots (5)(3-0) — Looked a little bit better than the previous weeks but still not up to their standards.
- New Orleans Saints (6)(3-0) — Sean Payton has his guys on a roll.
- Chicago Bears (8)(3-0) — Had a solid, all-around effort in beating the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
- Cincinnati Bengals (11)(2-1) — Solid comeback victory against the Packers.
- Miami Dolphins (12)(3-0) — One of the surprise teams of 2013, knocked off the Falcons at home.
- Indianapolis Colts (13)(2-1) — Pounded the 49ers in San Francisco, intriguing effort.
- Baltimore Ravens (10)(2-1) — Took down the finesse Texans in impressive fashion.
- Houston Texans (3)(2-1) — Couldn’t handle what the Ravens dished out.
- San Francisco 49ers (4)(1-2) — Do not look like a great team at this point. Too many problems to be considered among league’s best right now.
- Atlanta Falcons (7)(1-2) — Injuries are costing this team. Big loss on road to Dolphins
- Green Bay Packers (9)(1-2) — Injuries probably hurt chances to beat Bengals, but turnovers hurt worse.
- Kansas City Chiefs (18)(3-0) — Another one of the most intriguing teams of 2013; Andy Reid has this team cruising.
- Dallas Cowboys (14)(2-1) — Dismantled the Rams at home.
- Detroit Lions (17)(2-1) — Lions won for the first time in a long time in Washington. Jim Schwartz thought it was worth a swagger to midfield.
- Philadelphia Eagles (15)(1-2) — After an exciting first week, the Eagles are struggling to live up to billing.
- Tennessee Titans (27)(2-1) — Solid victory over a decent San Diego team.
- San Diego Chargers (19)(1-2) — Couldn’t hang on to beat the Titans.
- Washington Redskins (16)(0-3) — RG3 still doesn’t look right coming back from injury.
- St. Louis Rams (22)(1-2) — Decent talent, but still need to put all the pieces together.
- Buffalo Bills (23)(1-2) — Lost to division rival Jets. No magic this week.
- Carolina Panthers (24)(1-2) — Obliterated the Giants at home. Ron Rivera keeps job for another week.
- New York Jets (28)(2-1) — Outlasted the Bills at home. Two wins, but very unimpressive.
- Arizona Cardinals (26)(1-2) — Couldn’t keep up with the high-powered Saints.
- New York Giants (20)(0-3) — Something just isn’t right with this bunch. Eli can’t take care of the ball and the Giants can’t stop anyone.
- Cleveland Browns (30)(1-2) — Big victory on the road over the Vikings. Don’t know how this bad team did it though.
- Minnesota Vikings (21)(0-3) — Losing to the Browns at home is an embarrassment.
- Pittsburgh Steelers (25)(0-3) — Steelers just don’t have it this year. Roethlisberger was careless with the football.
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers (29)(0-3) — Bucs couldn’t match up with the Patriots on the road.
- Oakland Raiders (31)(1-2) — Got beat by the best team in the league on the road.
- Jacksonville Jaguars (32)(0-3) — Probably headed for the first pick of the draft next year.
