2020 NFL Power Rankings Week 3

09/23/2020

 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. 

The second week of games was very mundane in that there weren't a lot of surprises. The great teams continue to improve, as the not so great teams slowly lose ground. The Seahawks-Patriots matchup was an amazing look into the future of the NFL and a new age of mobile quarterbacks. Speaking of mobile quarterbacks, it's time we start looking like Dak Prescott in the proper light, an elite quarterback. 

With that said, let's look at our Week 3 Power Rankings. 


1. Baltimore Ravens

(2-0)

Holding off praise till they get to the Playoffs.


2. Kansas City Chiefs

(2-0)

It's important to find a way to win games you have no business winning. 


3. Seattle Seahawks 

(2-0)

Russell Wilson for MVP. 


4. Las Vegas Raiders +7

(2-0)

Jon Gruden is an elite coach. 


5. Pittsburgh Steelers

(2-0)

They keep winning games. 


6. Arizona Cardinals +7

(2-0)

Okay okay, Kliff Kingsbury was a good hire. 


7. Buffalo Bills

(2-0)

The Bills look like they could win the division. 


8. New England Patriots

(1-1)

Cam Newton looks like he is going to outplay Tom Brady this season


9. Green Bay Packers

(2-0)

Aaron Rodgers is an absolute bully to defensive backs. 


10. Tennessee Titans +6

(2-0)

The Titans are experts at winning ugly games, that's a special skill. 


11. New Orleans Saints -7

(1-1)

Drew Brees is clearly on the other side of that hill. 


12. Chicago Bears

(2-0)

Somehow the Bears are 2 and 0. 


13. Washington -7

(1-1)

1 and 1 is above expectations. 


14. Los Angeles Chargers

(1-1)

Tony Romo said Justin Herbert will grow into a special quarterback, so I believe it. 


15. Los Angeles Rams

(2-0)

The Rams are showing shades of that 2018 team. 


16. Jacksonville Jaguars -6

(1-1)

The Jaguars aren't actually that bad. 


17. Denver Broncos

(0-2)

This team is in shambles. 


18. Dallas Cowboys

(1-1)

That might the kind of win that precedes a special season


19. Cleveland Browns +13

(1-1)

OBJ finally looked elite again. 


20. San Francisco 49ers

(1-1)

Tough break for a team that doesn't get any luck with injuries. 


21. Detroit Lions

(0-2)

Too soon to bash Jeff Okudah. 


22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers +7

(1-1)

Tom Brady finally looks like a 40+ year old quarterback. 


23. Indianapolis Colts

(1-1)

That was an interesting and very unexpected beat down. 


24. Minnesota Vikings 

(0-2)

Uh oh, Kirk Cousins may just be an extremely average quarterback. 


25. Miami Dolphins 

(0-2)

Tua is still available but to be fair, Fitzpatrick played well. 


26. New York Jets

(0-2)

Okay maybe it wasn't a good idea trading your best player. 


27. Philadelphia Eagles

(0-2)

Jalen Hurts time??? 


28. New York Giants

(0-2)

Dang, you hate to see that happen to Saquon. 


29. Carolina Panthers -7

(0-2)

This looks like a throw away season already. 


30. Atlanta Falcons 

(0-2)

The blown lead is been over exaggerated, they actually played a great game. 


31. Houston Texans

(0-2)

This feels like last year where they'll go on a run but it'll ultimately be insignificant. 


32. Cincinnati Bengals -13

(0-2)

At least Joe Burrow balled out.

Considering Jeff Okudah was the third overall draft pick in 2020, his first two seasons in the NFL were quite poor to say the least. In fact, many people were already quick to throw around the word "bust" when mentioning his name. Towards the end of his rookie season, Okudah ranked dead last in yards allowed per route, and according...

Even before Chet Holmgren's season-ending injury, Banchero was the favorite to win the rookie of the year award, but I'm going to go a step further. I think Paolo Banchero will make the all-star team as a forward in the eastern conference. I am convinced he's a bonafide star. He can score, playmake, and I can tell the game is...

Once seen as one of the most promising young stars in the NBA, Washington Wizards big man Kristaps Porzingis has had injuries derail every one of his seasons since his rookie year. He had a great end to his season last year, however, after being traded to the Wizards from the Dallas Mavericks, averaging a stat line of 22/9/3. I...
