2020 NFL Power Rankings Week 5

10/07/2020

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.

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

(4-0)

I don't want to say they could go undefeated but like it kinda looks like it.

Saw someone tweet that Lamar Jackson was the best running back in the league.


3. Seattle Seahawks

(2-2)

Yeah, the Saints are done as a championship contender.

(4-0)

Josh Allen is built like an athletic Peyton Manning.

Ooooh if only they could start the game not in a 20 point deficit, wild thought, I know.


19. Washington

(1-3)

Dwayne Haskins might not be good enough to be a starting quarterback.

Kyler Murray threw 31 passes for a total of 133 yards, 4.3 yards a throw, HOW??
