NFL Power Rankings (Week 4)
1) New York Giants (3-0) – LW 1
The Giants dominated the lowly Bucs, holding them to 86 yards of total offense and shutting them out.
2) Baltimore Ravens (3-0) – LW 2
Joe Flacco is flinging the pigskin all over the field. The Ravens look virtually unstoppable now that their offense is creeping up to the level of their defense.
3) Indianapolis Colts (3-0) – LW 5
Peyton Manning torched the Cardinals secondary for 4 touchdown passes. Freeney is out for a couple of weeks, but the Colts are legit.
4) New Orleans Saints (3-0) – LW 8
The Saints showed they can also win the sloppy defensive game, holding the Bills to 7 points and ending T.O.’s reception streak.
5) New York Jets (3-0) – LW 7
Sanchez showed some wheels and a little bit of toughness on his touchdown run against the Titans last week. Big test for the Jets defense this week against the Saints.
6) Minnesota Vikings (3-0) – LW 4
The Vikings needed some last second heroics from “old man” Favre to overcome a 49er team who played all but one play without Frank Gore.
7) New England Patriots (2-1) – LW 11
Brady’s receivers, with the exception of Moss, let him down against the Falcons, dropping countless passes and not completing their routes. Nevertheless, the Patriots got it done against the Falcons and look to be back on track.
8) Atlanta Falcons (2-1) – LW 3
The Falcon’s defense struggled against a Patriots offense which was without Wes Welker and incorporating new receivers. On top of the defensive struggles, Matt Ryan could get anything going with his biggest red zone threat, Tony Gonzalez.
9) San Diego Chargers (2-1) – LW 9
The Chargers can make a statement next week if they can take advantage of and get a win against the reeling Steelers.
10) San Francisco 49ers (2-1) – LW 10
If it wasn’t for a last second touchdown pass by Favre, we would be talking about a 3-0 49ers team that look like possible contenders.
11) Philadelphia Eagles (2-1) – LW nr
Kevin Kolb became the first quarterback to throw for over 300 yards in each of his first two professional starts. Great job holding down the fort while McNabb recovers.
12) Cincinnati Bengals (2-1) – LW nr
The Bengals shocked us all when they came back from a fourth quarter deficit against the defending champs. They look legit.
13) Chicago Bears (2-1) – LW 13
Jay Cutler has been a different quarterback since his week one interception frenzy, leading the Bears to an impressive 2-1 start.
14) Green Bay Packers (2-1) – LW nr
Packers vs. Vikings on Monday Night Football this week, can’t wait.
15) Denver Broncos (3-0) – LW nr
Josh McDaniels sure looks like he knew what he was doing trading away Cutler to get the great Kyle Orton. The defense looks surprisingly strong too. Their taking advantage of a soft schedule, and it doesn’t hurt to have a little bit of luck.
