The NFL Draft came and went, and it will forever go down as the draft of the quarterback. It marks only the fourth time in NFL history in which at least five quarterbacks were chosen in the first round. It's the first time in 22 years that the first three picks were all quarterbacks, and the eight quarterbacks selected in...
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.

For the second time in the 21st century, it's exciting to be a New York Knicks fan. Currently occupying the 4th seed in the Eastern Conference, the Knicks have greatly exceeded expectations this year on the back of a stellar defense. Furthermore, the Knicks have gotten a career year out of star power forward Julius Randle, whose season averages of...
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.
