Power Rankings: Week Four

Best Team in the NFL?

Things finally settle down across the NFL Kingdom. Upsets dotted the landscape and blowouts were prevalent, but for the most part the story was about the players and not the Zebras. More rankings ensue. As always if you think you can do better; leave your own rankings in the comments below.

 1. Houston Texans (4-0).  This team is playing at another level entirely. When will they fall back to earth? Or will they?

2. Atlanta Falcons (4-0). The Falcon’s roll gets slowed by Cam Newton and the Panthers, but in the end, a victory is notched.

3. Arizona Cardinals (4-0). As goes Kolb, so go the Cardinals. A tight win over the Dolphins is nothing to crow about.

4. San Francisco 49ers (3-1). Niners bounce back from heartache and throttle the Jets.

5. Baltimore Ravens (3-1). Ravens came through their disturbingly brutal 17 game stretch with a 3-1 record that probably should have been 4-0 (if not for the Scabs). Good enough for fourth in my book.

6. Chicago Bears (3-1). Bears continue to win but Cutler is still a douche.

7. Cincinnati Bengals (3-1). Bengals keep the train rolling.

8. San Diego Chargers (3-1). Chargers rebound nicely and bring the pain against Kansas City.

9. Minnesota Vikings (3-1). Another big win for Christian Ponder.

10. Philadelphia Eagles (3-1). This is singlehandedly the worst 3-1 team in the history of football. Then again, as an O’s fan I suppose I should relate.

11. New England Patriots (2-2).  The Pats take their frustrations out on the lowly Bills.

12. Green Bay Packers (2-2). Despite Jake Gyllenhall… I mean Aaron Rodgers… struggling a bit, the Pack still finds a way to win.  

13. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-2). Steelers get an early bye week that is a blessing and a curse. They get healthy now, but what about down the stretch?

14. New York Giants (2-2). Giants fail to get out of their own way and ultimately fall apart against the much weaker Philadelphia Eagles.

15. Denver Broncos (2-2). Manning shakes off the dust and reminds everyone that he is still Manning.

16. Washington Redskins (2-2). Help from the Zebras give RGIII and the Skins the edge.. 

17. Dallas Cowboys (2-2). Jerry Jones will not tolerate another five int night from his franchise player.

18. Seattle Seahawks (2-2).  Seahawks struggle outside of Qwest. What else is new?

19. New York Jets (2-2). Tebow time could be on the horizon.

20. St. Louis Rams (2-2). Jeff Fisher will eventually right the ship, but it’s going to take time. Big win over Seattle helps.

21. Buffalo Bills (2-2). A solid first half gives rise to an absolute meltdown in the second.

22. Indianapolis Colts (1-2).  An early bye week could be difficult for young Andrew Luck down the stretch

23. Detroit Lions (1-3). Special Teams ruin any chance at victory.

24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-3). Bucs get jobbed by the refs at several occasions, but can’t blame the Zebras for not getting the job done.

25. Oakland Raiders (1-3). Absolutely embarrassed by the Broncos.

26. Carolina Panthers (1-3). Cam ran out of gas in trying to knock off Matty Ice.

27. Miami Dolphins (1-3). Another tough, tough loss for the Dolphins.

28. Tennessee Titans (1-3).  Don’t feel bad Titans, Houston is really good.

29. Kansas City Chiefs (1-3). One step forward, two steps back.

30. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-3). Jaguars floundered against the Bengals’ potent offense.

31. New Orleans Saints (0-4). Still nothing going right for New Orleans these days.

32. Cleveland Browns (0-4). It could be several weeks before the Browns notch a win. How long until the hot seat under Shurmer and Holmgren
