2019 NFL Power Rankings: Week Four

09/24/2019

Here at the ICT Zone, our power rankings are based on a very simple philosophy. To be the man you gotta beat the man, if a lower ranked team beats a higher ranked team, then the two teams automatically swap spots regardless of results from prior weeks. With that, we move on to week three of the 2019 NFL season.

Last Week the Ravens were top, this week the Chiefs snatched that spot with a dominating victory in Kansas City. Lamar Jackson slowed a little in his quest for 6,000 all purpose yards while Mahomes added to his. The highlight of the week was in no doubt the performances of three young quarterbacks in Gardner Minshew, Kyle Allen, and Daniel Jones. Only time will tell if their performances hold up but for now it's fun to see young quarterbacks get an opportunity, Dwayne Haskins may be next in Washington. 

Next week sees the Jets and the 49ers enjoy a Bye week, two franchises headed in opposite directions at least for the season. But for now here are our power rankings for the week.


1. Kansas City Chiefs +5 

(3-0) 

Patrick Mahomes continues his pace for 6,000 passing yards . . . wow.


2. Indianapolis Colts

(2-1) 

The Colts are simply too talented to fail even without Andrew Luck.


3. New England Patriots

(3-0) 

The AFC East looks like a complete walk through for a stacked New England team.


4. Dallas Cowboys

(3-0)  

Dak Prescott is taking more risks and that is just what the Cowboys needed.


5. Green Bay Packers

(3-0)  

Rodgers hasn't been great by his standards but the Packers keep winning.


6. Baltimore Ravens -5 

(2-1) 

Lamar Jackson struggled as a passer but was as electrifying as ever.


7. San Francisco 49ers

(3-0) 

The 49ers are starting to look like a sleeper for the Super bowl.


8. Minnesota Vikings +1 

(2-1) 

Melvin Cook looks like the best running back in the league . . . by far.


9. Oakland Raiders -1 

(1-2)  

Not sure what the Raiders are doing but at least they're competitive.


10. Detroit Lions

(2-0-1) 

I would be lying if I thought the Lions would start this well.


11. Atlanta Falcons

(1-2)  

Matt Ryan just does not look like a competent quarterback at times.


12. Los Angeles Rams

(3-0) 

The Rams struggled against the Browns and may have overpaid for Goff.


13. New Orleans Saints

(2-1) 

Bridgewater looks decent enough to keep the Saints afloat in the absence of Brees.


14. Buffalo Bills

(3-0) 

Don't let the record fool you, the Bills have played teams with a 1-8 record.


15. Seattle Seahawks

(2-1) 

The Seahawks continue last year's trend of losing games they should not lose.


16. Houston Texans +4 

(2-1)  

The Texans did well to win a game they had no business winning. 


17. Carolina Panthers +9 

(1-2)  

Don't be too quick to jump on the Kyle Allen bandwagon, the Cardinals are awful.


18. Cincinnati Bengals

(0-3) 

The Bengals should be in the market for a quarterback soon and everything else.


19. Cleveland Browns

(1-2) 

The Browns need to figure this out and fast.


20. Los Angeles Chargers -4 

(1-2) 

The Chargers are somehow worse than they should be, time to pay Melvin Gordon?


21. New York Giants +8 

(1-2)  

Daniel Jones looks phenomenal but that was one game. We need to see more.


22. Chicago Bears

(2-1) 

If only the Bears had an elite quarterback. 


23. Jacksonville Jaguars +4 

(1-2)  

The headline should be about Minshew but Jalen Ramsey is far more important.


24. Washington

(0-3) 

Just throw Dwayne Haskins out there, it can't get much worse.


25. Denver Broncos

(0-3) 

The 2015 Super Bowl win looks like an eternity ago.


26. Arizona Cardinals -9 

(0-2-1)  

Kingsbury's offense is suppose to be explosive, Murray averaged 4 yards per pass . . .


27. Tennessee Titans -4

(1-2)  

The Titans continue their journey to mediocrity.


28. Philadelphia Eagles

(1-2) 

Carson Wentz may be a tad bit overrated. Time will tell.


29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -8

(1-2)  

The Buccaneers somehow turned 3 TDS and 190 yards by Mike Evans into a loss.


30. Pittsburgh Steelers

(0-3) 

Steelers are stuck in a tunnel and there's no sign of a light at the end of it.


31. New York Jets

(0-3) 

Any win the Jets accomplish this season will be a bonus.


32. Miami Dolphins

(0-3) 

At least they looked like an NFL team this week.
