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 2
The NFL season is back in full swing. Last week, we gave you our Super Bowl prediction, this week is a return to our unique ranking system.
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. With that we move on to the first ranking of the 2020 NFL season.
For our first set of rankings, the spots are given based on margin of victory. For example, Ravens are first because they won their game by the most points. The following weeks will follow our usual standards.
1. Baltimore Ravens
Lamar Jackson is back in full force.
2. Kansas City Chiefs
It's early but it looks like this team somehow got better.
3. Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson is on X-Games mode.
4. New Orleans Saints
It's early in the season, the Saints were always going to win.
5. Pittsburgh Steelers
I guess they are good again??
The name change brought some good luck.
7. Buffalo Bills
Josh Allen may actually be good, no cap.
8. New England Patriots
Feels extremely weird seeing a Patriots quarterback allowed to express himself.
9. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is still that guy.
10. Jacksonville Jaguars
Yeah but do we really care whether they win or lose?
11. Las Vegas Raiders
Don't rule out a Derek Carr resurgence.
12. Chicago Bears
13. Arizona Cardinals
Kyler Murray looks like a mixture of Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson.
14. Los Angeles Chargers
Tyrod Taylor is still in the NFL, he's also a Super Bowl champion.
15. Los Angeles Rams
Aaron Donald deserves quarterback type of money.
16. Tennesse Titans
Still don't know how they got that far in the Playoffs.
17. Denver Broncos
Andrew Lock's rise is a nice parallel to Andrew Luck's retirement.
18. Dallas Cowboys
Shake my head.
19. Cincinnati Bengals
At least they have Joe Burrow.
20. San Francisco 49ers
This is starting to look like a roster that might never return to the Super Bowl.
21. Detroit Lions
They could still go 0 and 16 again.
22. Carolina Panthers
Not the best coaching debut for Matt Rhule.
23. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts are still relevant, I promise.
24. Minnesota Vikings
Kirk Cousins is a very reckless individual.
25. Miami Dolphins
They saved all their passion and effort for post-game shenanigans???
26. New York Jets
Okay, legitimate concerns about Sam Darnold.
27. Philadelphia Eagles
Doesn't feel like this team has ever won a Super Bowl, let alone two years ago.
28. New York Giants
This was expected, let's be honest.
29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Rough start for Tompa Bay.
30. Atlanta Falcons
At least the offense played well.
31. Houston Texans
The Texans aren't going anywhere soon.
32. Cleveland Browns
This feels like one of those early losses that we'll look back on with surprise.

It is time to throw away the American inferiority complex with its place in the sport, where many blindly claim that technique should come above all in choosing and developing the best prospects and that the U.S. is not an international power because it cares too much about athleticism.
Following last year's list of nine underground teams to watch, I bring the list back with eight new teams you need to follow. From entertaining amateur players to professional coaches revolutionizing the sport from behind the scenes, here are eight underground soccer teams to watch this season.
