The Week 3 NFL power rankings are here, and the Indianapolis Colts are in a hideous slide, while the Miami Dolphins showed their mettle.
Atlanta Falcons 0-2
Last rank: 32nd
The Falcons have remained true to themselves. Crazy games, crushing losses.
Houston Texans 0-1-1
Last rank: 30th
The Texans are playing hard, they just don’t have enough talent to beat many teams.
Seattle Seahawks 1-1
Last rank: 29th
Remember the wild win against the Broncos on Monday night in Week 1? Savor that feeling.
Chicago Bears 1-1
Last rank: 28th
The Bears aren’t going to crack 20 points more than a few times this year.
New York Jets 1-1
Last rank: 31st
Take the win, get on the plane, and celebrate. Insanity.
Carolina Panthers 0-2
Last rank: 27th
Baker Mayfield has been awful for seven of the season’s first eight quarters. Not good.
Cleveland Browns 1-1
Last rank: 19th
That’s one of the most ridiculous losses in recent memory.
Indianapolis Colts 0-1-1
Last rank: 13th
What the hell is wrong with the Colts? Hideous football.
New England Patriots 1-1
Last rank: 26th
Mac Jones wasn’t great, but the Patriots’ defense stepped up and stopped the Steelers.
Jacksonville Jaguars 1-1
Last rank: 25th
The Jaguars hammered the Colts. Perhaps they can compete in the weak AFC South?
Washington Commanders 1-1
Last rank: 20th
Carson Wentz is the biggest rollercoaster on Earth. Belongs in an amusement park.
Pittsburgh Steelers 1-1
Last rank: 18th
The Steelers need to score, but they don’t have a quarterback or an offensive line.
Las Vegas Raiders 0-2
Last rank: 15th
The Raiders might not recover from that loss to Arizona. Just a comical train wreck.
Tennessee Titans 0-2
Last rank: 17th
Between the injuries and the talent gap, the Titans had no shot against the Bills.
Detroit Lions 1-1
Last rank: 24th
The Lions can score. If the defense improves behind rookie phenom Aidan Hutchinson, look out.
Dallas Cowboys 1-1
Last rank: 23rd
Cooper Rush beating Joe Burrow and the Bengals? Nope. All about the defense.
New York Giants 2-0
Last rank: 22nd
New York isn’t overwhelming with talent, but the Giants are playing hard and executing enough.
Arizona Cardinals 1-1
Last rank: 21st
If the Cardinals have a productive season, they’ll look back at the second half in Las Vegas as the turning point.
Denver Broncos 1-1
Last rank: 16th
The Broncos are 1-1, but Nathaniel Hackett is deeply concerning. Russell Wilson hasn’t been great, either.
New Orleans Saints 1-1
Last rank: 11th
Jameis Winston can’t throw three interceptions. The offense can’t have five turnovers. Ugly.
Cincinnati Bengals 0-2
Last rank: 9th
Joe Burrow has started the year being sacked 13 times in losses to Mitchell Trubisky and Cooper Rush. Yikes.
Minnesota Vikings 1-0
Last rank: 10th
Not going to knock the Vikings for losing in Philadelphia, but that was an ugly showing.
San Francisco 49ers 1-1
Last rank: 12th
A key win over the Seahawks, but it’s muted with the injury to Trey Lance.
Baltimore Ravens 1-1
Last rank: 4th
Perhaps the worst loss of the John Harbaugh era. A 21-point, fourth-quarter lead … gone.
Miami Dolphins 2-0
Last rank: 14th
If there’s ever a springboard for Tua Tagovailoa, this was it. What a performance.
Los Angeles Chargers 1-1
Last rank: 5th
The Chargers could have blown out the Chiefs early. But they didn’t, proceeded to lose, and now Justin Herbert is hurt.
Los Angeles Rams 1-1
Last rank: 7th
The Rams need to figure it out. Hammered by the Bills, and barely beating the Falcons.
Green Bay Packers 1-1
Last rank: 6th
Easy win, and the Packers are back on track. Now, off to play the Buccaneers.
Philadelphia Eagles 2-0
Last rank: 8th
Dominant showing. The Eagles, and Jalen Hurts, are clearly a threat in the NFC.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2-0
Last rank: 3rd
The defense has given up six points save for garbage time. The offense, however, is a concern.
Kansas City Chiefs 2-0
Last rank: 2nd
The Chiefs didn’t play great on Thursday, but they made all the plays the Chargers didn’t. Defense looks good.
Buffalo Bills 2-0
Last rank: 1st
Buffalo is the best team in football. Just a machine.
