2013 Week 4 NFL Team Power Rankings

NFLTeams
A power ranking of all 32 NFL teams after week 3 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:
Dropping out of top 12- Bengals, Texans, Falcons
Moving Up in top 12- Chiefs, Colts, Bears

AFC: The Bengals (down 4) didn’t do anything wrong by beating the Packers at home. Nice win. It’s more of a case of the Chiefs surging up to 3-0 and the Colts getting an impressive road win at SF. While I don’t expect the Chiefs to win their division over the Broncos, nor the Dolphins to win their division over the Patriots, I do like the Chiefs and Dolphins chances to get those two AFC wildcard spots.

The Chiefs remind me of the Colts who were in last place in 2011 and then made the playoffs in 2012.

NFC: The Packers (down 5) look solid at home but they appear beatable on the road losing at the Bengals and 49ers. Meanwhile, the Bears (up 5) just keep quietly taking care of their business and stand at 3-0. Their new coach seems to have the offense executing more effectively and more consistently. They could give the Packers a battle for the division title.

The now 1-2 Falcons (down 8) lost at Miami this week after clinging late for a win at home against the not so strong Rams, the previous week. With key injuries, the Falcons are in for a real battle with the 3-0 Saints to win the NFC South. A team they have already lost to.

NFC “Least” update- It’s starting to look like 2-1 Dallas (up 1) may win the NFC East by default, with the Giants and Redskins falling to 0-3. The Eagles lost too falling to 1-2. But it’s only September so don’t under estimate Jason Garrett’s ability to blow this thing.
