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.

The last 24 hours in football have been a whirlwind of outcry, complaints, memes, jokes, vibes, and protests about the state of the sport in the aftermath of the announcement of the European Super League. Unfortunately, at the root of this movement is a whole lot of misinformation that make the league seem far worse than it actually is.

Remember the saying, Defense Wins Championships. It's a cliche for a reason. Over the last ten years, every team that has won the Larry O'Brien Trophy has ranked near the top 5 in net defensive rating. While it has improved over the course of the season, the Brooklyn Nets rank 24th with a rating of 113. In contrast, the 76ers...

The last few decades of women's college basketball were synonymous with the dominance the top programs showed. It was not uncommon to see the four #1 seeds make the final four. But we are headed for a new era that is going to flip the script altogether. A new era of parity, an era where the talent is spread evenly across the country. ...
