NFL power rankings, a quarter into the season

2 mins read

The first four weeks of the 2018 NFL season have started off great for some teams, yet tragic for others. Nevertheless, every moment of football this year has been amazing to watch.


#1 – Los Angeles Rams (4-0)

Last game: win vs Minnesota Vikings (38-31)

The LA Rams continue to display their talents on both offense and defense. Playing on Thursday Night Football, the Rams proved their worth by defeating the star studded Vikings. Jared Goff threw 465 yards and 5 touchdowns in a thriller.


#2 – Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)

Last game: win vs San Francisco 49ers (38-27) (from week 3, the chiefs play in the Monday Night Football game this week)

Led by second year quarterback, Patrick Mahomes, the Kansas City Chiefs are this season’s electrifying team that everyone loves to watch.


#3 – Tennessee Titans (3-1)

Last game: win vs Philadelphia Eagles (26-23)

Think this is too high of a rank? The Titans just beat the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Eagles. Last week, Tennessee beat the Jaguars, who reached the AFC Championship last season. Quarterback, Marcus Mariota, is ready to lead this team far into the playoffs.


#4 – Jacksonville Jaguars (3-1)

Last game: win vs New York Jets (31-12)

Although the Jaguars trampled a shaky Jets squad today, running back, T.J. Yeldon, is filling in nicely for the injured Leonard Fournette.


#5 – New Orleans Saints (3-1)

Last game: win vs New York Giants (33-18)

The Saints picked up a solid win today against the Giants. Running back, Alvin Kamara, had an outstanding day with 134 rushing yards and 3 rushing touchdowns.


#6 – New England Patriots (2-2)

Last game: win vs Miami Dolphins (38-7)

The Patriots have had a shaky start to the season, but with the additions of Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon, their offense will come alive.


#7 – Green Bay Packers (2-1-1)

Last game: win vs Buffalo Bills (22-0)

The Packers picked up a nice win against the Bills. Their defense proved their talent for one of the first times this season by pitching a shutout.


#8 – Cincinnati Bengals (3-1)

Last game: win vs Atlanta Falcons (37-36)

Cincinnati got a huge win in Atlanta today with a game winning throw from quarterback,

Andy Dalton, to wide receiver A.J. Green. Dalton is playing the best he has played in a

couple of seasons.


#9 – Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)

Last game: loss vs Tennessee Titans (23-26)

The defending Super Bowl Champions had a little bit of a hiccup in Week four, but quarterback, Carson Wentz, will bring them back to Super Bowl caliber level.


#10 – Carolina Panthers (2-1) (bye week this week)

Last game: win vs Cincinnati Bengals (31-21)

Quarterback, Cam Newton, is a fairly inconsistent on his production level each season. But so far, Newton has shown his consistency by leading this team to 2 strong victories.
