Welcome to the post-Week 3 edition of triggering power rankings.
Check here for last week’s edition.
No. 32: New York Jets (+0)
The Jets are the worst team in the NFL
No. 31: New York Giants (+0)
The Giants are the worst team besides the Jets.
No. 30: Denver Broncos (-3)
Denver has been ravaged with injuries offensively and defensively, and it has been a disgusting few weeks.
No. 29: Atlanta Falcons (+0)
The Falcons blew a second colossal lead. They have lost back-to-back games despite having over a 99 percent win probability.
No. 28: Minnesota Vikings (-5)
Minnesota controlled a lot of the game, but they fell apart in the second half.
No. 27: Washington Football Team (-1)
Cleveland smacked the Football Team.
No. 26: Carolina Panthers (+4)
The Panthers had to settle for many field goals, but they prevailed over the Chargers.
No. 25: Jacksonville Jaguars (-5)
The Jaguars showed up to Thursday Night Football as flat as a pancake. It was a pitiful performance for everyone besides James Robinson.
No. 24: Miami Dolphins (+4)
The Dolphins won the AFC Battle of Florida. The offense broke off some solid plays, and they played well on both sides of the ball.
No. 23: Cincinnati Bengals (+1)
Joe Burrow and the Bengals have a bright future.
No. 22: Philadelphia Eagles (+0)
The Eagles have underperformed, and a lot of the failure falls on the shoulders of Carson Wentz. Surprisingly, the Eagles are only a half-game out of first place in the NFC East.
No. 21: Houston Texans (-3)
Houston has had a gauntlet of AFC powerhouses, and they have whimpered to a 0-3 start.
No. 20: Los Angeles Chargers (-1)
The Chargers lost to a Christian McCaffrey-less Panthers. Yikes.
No. 19: Detroit Lions (+6)
The Lions pulled out a clutch win in Glendale. Kenny Golladay is back, and the Lions could make a play at the third wild card spot.
No. 18: Cleveland Browns (+2)
The Browns have a positive record for the first time since 2014. They have played two inferior teams, but the Browns have taken care of business.
No. 17: Las Vegas Raiders (-1)
The Raiders struggled against the Patriots, but the AFC West is open behind Kansas City.
No. 16: Chicago Bears (+1)
With Nick Foles as the starter, the Bears will be significantly better. Their future wins will propel higher and higher in the power rankings.
No. 15: New Orleans Saints (-3)
The Saints have lost back-to-back games, and the offense has become the Alvin Kamara show. Kamara may be the best running back in football, but one player cannot carry a team.
No. 14: Indianapolis Colts (+1)
The Colts clobbered the Jets, scoring 16 defensive points.
No. 13: Dallas Cowboys (+0)
Dallas has unfortunately played against two strong NFC West teams. They are the favorites in the NFC East as the other team teams are tripping over themselves.
No. 12: San Francisco 49ers (-1)
Even with injuries, the 49ers demolished the Giants. The schedule will start ramping up soon, but the 49ers have been good enough to maintain a playoff power ranking spot.
No. 11: Arizona Cardinals (-1)
The Cardinals had a massive letdown on Sunday, losing to the Lions. Kyler Murray tossed three interceptions.
No. 10: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+4)
The Buccaneers are firing on all cylinders. While they have capitalized on two bad teams, Tampa Bay seems locked in on offense and defense.
No. 9: Los Angeles Rams (-1)
The Rams were down 25 points, but they fought back before a clutch Josh Allen drive downed Los Angeles.
No. 8: New England Patriots (+1)
The Patriots dominated the Raiders at home. While Buffalo is stiff competition within the division, it would be shocking for the Patriots to miss the playoffs.
No. 7: Buffalo Bills (+0)
The Bills surrendered a 25-point lead, but they answered on a key final drive. They are legit.
No. 6: Tennessee Titans (+0)
Tennessee is 3-0 while failing to cover the spread in any games. All they do is win.
No. 5: Pittsburgh Steelers (+0)
The defense came alive in the second half, shutting out the Texans. They currently lead the AFC North, and they are a second-tier AFC contender (behind the Chiefs).
No. 4: Seattle Seahawks (+0)
Seattle outdueled Dallas, and Russell Wilson continued his MVP form. They seem to be pulling away from the field in the NFC West.
No. 3: Green Bay Packers (+0)
The Packers went to the Superdome and beat the Saints in one of the more impressive wins of the weekend. Even without Davante Adams, the Packers looked strong. They are the best team in the NFC.
No. 2: Baltimore Ravens (+0)
Calm down. Baltimore played against a team that will win their second-straight Super Bowl in February. Baltimore has the occasional ugly loss, but in a game of odds, the Ravens are more likely to clobber a team than they are to be clobbered.
No. 1: Kansas City Chiefs (+0)
The Chiefs are the best team in the NFL. They are no longer competing with their contemporaries; they are competing with the likes of the 2007 Patriots, 1985 Bears, 1984 49ers, and 1972 Dolphins. By the end of the season, they could be on the Mount Rushmore of all-time teams.
