Comparisons are a vital part of sports. We can't set our eyes on a new talent without immediately pointing to who that player reminds us of, like the Leonardo Di Caprio meme from Once Upon a Time in Hollywood. I do it too, so I wish I had an answer for why we can't escape the jaws of a player-comp,...
2020 NFL Power Rankings Week 3
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
Holding off praise till they get to the Playoffs.
2. Kansas City Chiefs
It's important to find a way to win games you have no business winning.
3. Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson for MVP.
4. Las Vegas Raiders +7
Jon Gruden is an elite coach.
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
They keep winning games.
6. Arizona Cardinals +7
Okay okay, Kliff Kingsbury was a good hire.
7. Buffalo Bills
The Bills look like they could win the division.
9. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is an absolute bully to defensive backs.
10. Tennessee Titans +6
The Titans are experts at winning ugly games, that's a special skill.
11. New Orleans Saints -7
Drew Brees is clearly on the other side of that hill.
12. Chicago Bears
Somehow the Bears are 2 and 0.
13. Washington -7
1 and 1 is above expectations.
14. Los Angeles Chargers
Tony Romo said Justin Herbert will grow into a special quarterback, so I believe it.
15. Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are showing shades of that 2018 team.
16. Jacksonville Jaguars -6
The Jaguars aren't actually that bad.
17. Denver Broncos
This team is in shambles.
18. Dallas Cowboys
That might the kind of win that precedes a special season.
19. Cleveland Browns +13
OBJ finally looked elite again.
20. San Francisco 49ers
Tough break for a team that doesn't get any luck with injuries.
21. Detroit Lions
Too soon to bash Jeff Okudah.
22. Tampa Bay Buccaneers +7
Tom Brady finally looks like a 40+ year old quarterback.
23. Indianapolis Colts
That was an interesting and very unexpected beat down.
24. Minnesota Vikings
Uh oh, Kirk Cousins may just be an extremely average quarterback.
25. Miami Dolphins
Tua is still available but to be fair, Fitzpatrick played well.
26. New York Jets
Okay maybe it wasn't a good idea trading your best player.
27. Philadelphia Eagles
Jalen Hurts time???
28. New York Giants
Dang, you hate to see that happen to Saquon.
29. Carolina Panthers -7
This looks like a throw away season already.
30. Atlanta Falcons
The blown lead is been over exaggerated, they actually played a great game.
31. Houston Texans
This feels like last year where they'll go on a run but it'll ultimately be insignificant.
32. Cincinnati Bengals -13
At least Joe Burrow balled out.

Since the beginning of the calendar year, we've all known that Watford and Norwich would get relegated back to the Championship. The focus has been on what team would be the third to get the drop, with Leeds taking pole position after letting Bielsa go. And their replacement, Jesse Marsch, was hired into a nearly impossible situation. Leed had just...
I did my worst fanbases earlier in the week, so it's only fair that I do my best fanbases. No bias or anything here; this is as objective and fair of a list as you'll find based on my soccer knowledge. in my humble opinion, these are the best fanbases to play for. And again, if you don't agree, don't forget to write your local congressman or woman....
