1 – Philadelphia Eagles (3)
Philadelphia is the last undefeated team in the NFL after just 4 weeks of play. It didn’t come particularly easy on Sunday against the Jaguars, but the Eagles were able to dig themselves out of a quick 14-0 hole and show that they can win games on both sides of the ball. The defence forced four fumbles from Trevor Lawrence while Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders shined in the rain for the 29-21 victory. The Eagles’ next contest will be against the Cardinals in Arizona, where another win may keep them at the top of our weekly Power Rankings.
2 – Kansas City Chiefs (4)
The Chiefs bounced back from a tough loss with a statement win on Sunday night in Tampa Bay. Although the final score was 41-31, the game never felt in jeopardy for Kansas City, who now boast a record of 3-1. It was also nice for fans to see Patrick Mahomes up to his old tricks in a highlight reel touchdown pass to Clyde-Edwards Helaire. If the offence is going like they were on Sunday, the Chiefs are extremely difficult to slow down.
3 – Buffalo Bills (2)
Now at the lowest point in our Power Rankings they’ve been all season, we have the Buffalo Bills. The team did show some fantastic resilience in a 17 point comeback in Baltimore, but it wasn’t the dominating win we’d like to have seen following their week 3 loss. However, the team was terrific in the second half and showed exactly why they are considered by many to still be the best team in the NFL.
4 – San Fransisco 49ers (n/a)
Even with two losses on the season, the San Fransisco 49ers find themselves at 4th in our Power Rankings this week. The Niners were terrific on Monday night against the Rams and showed just how strong they can be when they’re playing well. The defence allowed just 9 points to the reigning Super Bowl champs, while Deebo Samuel led the offence with six catches for 115 yards and a touchdown. Although it’s been a bit of an up and down start for Kyle Shanahan’s team, this latest win sure showed the league how high of a ceiling this team has.
5 – Baltimore Ravens (n/a)
The Ravens are two very close losses away from being 4-0. Unfortunately, the NFL has no consolation points for games you could have or should have won and the one thing this team hasn’t done well is hold on to big leads. Lamar Jackson and the defence continue to look good until the momentum swings in the other team’s direction. Even with that being said, the Ravens are very close to being very good, and if they can learn how to keep a lead, they’ll be one of the most dangerous teams in the AFC. It’s that potential that slides them into the fifth and final spot of this week’s NFL Power Rankings.
HONOURABLE MENTION – GREEN BAY PACKERS, MIAMI DOLPHINS
