The Oklahoma City Thunder won the draft. This was the first year in my Thunder fandom where I was nervous about the draft. This was going to be the make-or-break it for the rebuild. For Thunder fans in the last ten years, the draft meant drafting raw athletic long-term projects with later picks. Players like Josh Huestis, Terrance Ferguson, and...
2019 NFL Power Rankings: Week Three
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 two of the 2019 NFL season.
The biggest mover of the week came with the Colts jumping all the way to number 2 after defeating the Titans. The Colts might be fine without Andrew Luck after all. The Packers also swapped spots with the Vikings to move into the top 5. The Lions, Buccaneers, Falcons, and Browns wrapped up the rest of the movers. Next week promises some explosive matchups with the Chiefs matching up with the Ravens and the Rams coming up against the Browns.
Tune in next week to see how things shake up.
1. Baltimore Ravens
Lamar Jackson has the Ravens looking like a real contender.
2. Indianapolis Colts +21
Jacoby Brissett has been a pleasant surprise for most Colts fans.
3. New England Patriots
Blessing Brady with AB may mean this NFL season is over and done with already.
4. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys may actually have an elite quarterback, who would have thought?
5. Green Bay Packers +4
Rodgers doesn't look like the MVP candidate we predicted but the team is 2 and 0.
6. Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes is currently on pace for 56 Touchdowns and 6,500 yards . . . Wow.
7. San Francisco 49ers
Have one of the most underrated teams in the NFL and the schedule to succeed.
8. Oakland Raiders
The Raiders may be better than expected but still not a playoff team.
9. Minnesota Vikings -4
Dalvin Cook is making a real case for the best running back in the NFL.
10. Detroit Lions +6
Not sure what exactly to make of the Lions so far.
11. Atlanta Falcons +17
Matt Ryan might be an average quarterback with extremely talented receivers.
12. Los Angeles Rams
Something doesn't feel quite right about this Rams team.
13. New Orleans Saints
Teddy Bridgewater is as good as a backup gets but Drew Brees is Drew Brees.
14. Buffalo Bills
The Bills may be two and 0 but that means absolutely nothing.
15. Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson continues his side job as a magician.
16. Los Angeles Chargers -6
Phillip Rivers may be over the hill.
17. Arizona Cardinals
Kyler Murray is proving people wrong but how long till the NFL figures it out?
18. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals might be considering a new quarterback at some point soon.
19. Cleveland Browns +12
Odell Beckham Jr. may be the best wide receiver in the NFL.
20. Houston Texans
The Texans will make the playoffs and exit in the first round as usual.
21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers +5
The Bucs don't have much to offer the NFL this season.
Washington needs to call it a year and give Haskins the reps he needs to develop.
23. Tennessee Titans -21
The Titans are the perfect 8-8 team.
24. Chicago Bears
It seems the Bears have everything but a quarterback.
25. Denver Broncos
Denver has been mediocre for far too long considering the roster.
26. Carolina Panthers -5
Carolina's season may already be over. A shame for a really talented defense.
27. Jacksonville Jaguars
Things are blowing up in Jacksonville.
28. Philadelphia Eagles -17
The Eagles have a gift of looking like the best and the worst team in the same game
29. New York Giants
Daniel Jones is here, only time will tell what that means.
30. Pittsburgh Steelers
That's it. This season is a wrap for the Steelers.
31. New York Jets -12
The Jets have been unfortunate but the NFL takes no prisoners.
32. Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins look more like a college football team .

It's draft day! The time of year when we welcome the next wave of talent into our league. Outside of the top 3-5 players, this is the first time most fans hear the names of their next favorite player. Admittedly, I only started paying attention to college prospects during March Madness, and that's only through the view of the...
The Chicago Bulls surprised everyone last year by making the biggest splash in free agency, signing Demar Derozan, Alex Caruso, and Lonzo Ball to pair with Zach Lavine and Nikola Vucevic. Safe to say, the Bulls exceed expectations. Before the season, it was unclear how Lavine and Derozan would fit next to each other. They put those conversations to...
