2013 Week 3 NFL Team Power Rankings

NFLTeams
A power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week two play.

The Twist: Each week my top 12 ranked teams will consist of 6 NFC teams and 6 AFC teams since 6 from each conference will qualify for the post season. I reflect the top 12 teams most likely to make the playoffs each week.

TOP 12:
The Seattle Seahawks once again beat down the 49ers in Seattle, to move into the top spot this week. It could be a different story when they meet in S.F. later, but for now, the Seahawks have an early lead to win the NFC West.

After losing 24-20 to the Dolphins, the Colts tumble out of the top 12 teams and are replaced by the 2-0 Dolphins.

The Lions fall out of the top 12 after losing to the Cardinals and are replaced by the Saints who are 2-0 in the NFC South.

The NFC “Least”
And the Cowboys stay at 12 after losing to the Chiefs 17-16. Allow me to explain, in my rankings I have at least one team from every division because eventually some team will win that division and make the playoffs.

Currently none of the NFC East teams deserve to be in the top 12. The Redskins and Giants are a dismal 0-2 and only 12% of teams starting 0-2 make the playoffs. That leaves either the Eagles and Cowboys who are very close on paper with a 1-1 overall record, both 1-0 in the division, and their only loss being out of conference.

I gave Dallas a slight edge over the Eagles for losing on the road to the 2-0 Chiefs while the Eagles lost at home to the 1-1 Chargers. Dallas should be ranked about 16 but at the moment, they have as good of a chance to win the NFC “LEast” as anyone.
