The fourth week of NFL power rankings
1.Philadelphia Eagles 3-0– Due to their favorable schedule, the Philadelphia Eagles have blasted their way through what is likely to be an illustrious season in their quest to go beyond dethroning the Cowboys in the NFC East and contend for a conference championship. The numerous strengths of the team merit significant praise, and the deep playmaking defensive line-up should receive significant recognition.
2. Buffalo Bills 2-1even though they were far more dominant in play volume and time of possession than Miami, they just made too many mistakes and couldn’t finish. Josh Allen’s doing well and their defense’s still doing well, even when they don’t have many players at the back end.
3. Miami Dolphins 3-0– The Dolphins have an outstanding opening resume with Mike McDaniel at the helm. His strategy seems to work— we’ve witnessed big comeback, grinding battles of attrition, and quick routs.
4. Green Bay Packers 2-1– The Packers are now able to play free of the awful performance in week one and be back to being a complete team. This allows them to have a good shot to take the title in the NFC conference.
5. Kansas City Chiefs2-1 -The Chiefs are going to want that one back, and rightfully so, as they felt they weren’t playing second fiddle on the road against the Colts. Indy won 20-17 thanks to a flurry of mistakes. Skyy Moore blocked a punt and Matt Ammendola missed a 34-yard field goal and extra point. It’s likely Andy Reid’s team will be much cleaner on Sunday night against the Buccaneers after Patrick Mahomes threw his only interception in the final seconds.
