A new team has climbed to the top of our Power Rankings for the first time this season!
1 – Miami Dolphins (N/A)
The Dolphins are undefeated and for real. After beating the Patriots in New England in Week 1, they’ve taken down the Baltimore Ravens and the Buffalo Bills in thrilling fashion. Tua has silenced the haters and the offence is working well through Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. Although this team may not be our favorite by the time the playoffs roll around, they deserve the top spot in the power rankings for now.
2 – Buffalo Bills (1)
The Bills were a few plays and a few seconds away from staying undefeated last Sunday. First, it was a goal to go situation that yielded no points late in the second half. Then, time ran out before they could snap the ball and give Tyler Bass a chance to win the game with a last second field goal. The defensive unit is also pretty banged up, especially the secondary. Although they’re no longer at the top of our Power Rankings, the Bills should still be everyone’s favorite to come out of the AFC in this year’s playoffs, especially if they can get closer to full health.
3 – Philadelphia Eagles (3)
You could make the argument that the Eagles haven’t had a tough enough schedule yet to truly gauge how good they are. However, all they’ve done is win. After week 1 got a little closer than it should have been, Philly dominated the Vikings and Commanders on both sides of the ball in weeks 2 and 3. Jalen Hurts is playing the best football of his career, A.J. Brown has been a fantastic addition to the receiving core, and the defence has allowed just 15 points in the past two weeks. Regardless of competition, the Eagles are for real.
4 – Kansas City Chiefs (2)
Kansas City was dealt a very tough loss in Indianapolis last week but is still in the top 5 of our Power Rankings. Good teams can have bad games and the Chiefs are hoping that’s all it was for them against the Colts. With a couple of breaks and better execution on a few plays, the game could have gone in a completely different direction. As long as Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce are healthy, this team will be a force in the AFC.
5 – Baltimore Ravens (N/A)
The Ravens enter our top 5 for the first time this season after an 11-point win over the Patriots in Foxborough. Lamar Jackson has been balling all season and without a late game collapse against the Dolphins in week 2, this team would be the undefeated one instead of Miami. This week, the Ravens go up against an angry Bills team looking to get back in the win column. It’s a perfect opportunity to show the rest of the league if they’re a legit contender or not, and we think Harbaugh will have them up to the challenge.
