A new season is upon us, and with it comes plenty of intriguing storylines. From massive traves and superstar uncertainty in the East to a West perhaps the deepest it has ever been, here is an early season NBA Power ranking.
2020 NFL Power Rankings Week 5
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.
Last week, our top five was the: Chiefs, Ravens, Seahawks, Patriots and Steelers. The top 5 remains the same. The Patriots lost, but that loss was to the higher ranked Chiefs so they don't lose their spot. It's a shame we didn't get the Cam Newton-Patrick Mahomes matchup we were looking forward to.
There aren't any real matchups to look at this week, but we get to see the dumpster fire that is the NFC East as the Giants take on the Cowboys.
1. Kansas City Chiefs
I don't want to say they could go undefeated but like it kinda looks like it.
2. Baltimore Ravens
Saw someone tweet that Lamar Jackson was the best running back in the league.
3. Seattle Seahawks
DK Metcalf is a cheat code.
4. New England Patriots
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
Forgot this was a football team.
6. New Orleans Saints +5
Yeah, the Saints are done as a championship contender.
7. Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen is built like an athletic Peyton Manning.
8. Las Vegas Raiders
Carr moaned he was tired of losing, like 2 and 2 isn't an upgrade on last season.
9. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is talking that s*** again and the NFL should be on watch.
10. Tennessee Titans
Not sure if they are now at an advantage or disadvantage.
11. Detroit Lions -5
Whew, so many things wrong at once, I don't know where to start.
12. Indianapolis Colts +11
How are they 3 and 1???
13. Cleveland Browns
If they could get that Odell every week then the sky is the limit.
14. Carolina Panthers
I'm not even sure what this team is competing for this season.
15. Los Angeles Rams
Jalen Ramsey is a bully.
16. Miami Dolphins
17. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I hate to say it, but sometimes this Tom Brady looks a lot like Jameis Winston.
18. Dallas Cowboys
Ooooh if only they could start the game not in a 20 point deficit, wild thought, I know.
Dwayne Haskins might not be good enough to be a starting quarterback.
20. Philadelphia Eagles +7
Yeah they won but I don't think it changes anything.
21. Arizona Cardinals
Kyler Murray threw 31 passes for a total of 133 yards, 4.3 yards a throw, HOW??
22. Denver Broncos
For someone who is an ex quarterback, John Elway is awful at picking em.
23. Chicago Bears -11
This is built like a 10 win first round playoff exit team.
24. Minnesota Vikings
Hey, at least they won.
25. Cincinnati Bengals +7
Joe Burrow got his first of at most three wins this season, nice.
26. New York Jets
0 and 16 watch has officially started.
27. San Francisco 49ers -7
They are not going back to the Super Bowl.
28. New York Giants
Daniel Jones only had one turnover this week, this is progress.
29. Los Angeles Chargers
Justin Herbert will be the best quarterback drafted in the last and next three years.
30. Atlanta Falcons
Hey, at least it wasn't a blown lead this time.
31. Houston Texans
32. Jacksonville Jaguars -7
I'm not sure why the Jaguars are playing football this season.
