NFL Team Rankings Post Week Three

By Zack Cimini

Things are beginning to shape up into proper form. After week three there are only three undefeated teams left. Pittsburgh, Kansas City, and the Chicago Bears. This season is shaping up to be a typical roller coaster year. It’s only three games in so there is a lot of room for teams to climb and get themselves back into the fold.

Listen in on this weeks podcast to prepare you for week fours games. The podcast will be uploaded Wednesday night at 10 PM, PST.

1. Pittsburgh Steelers- The Steelers are showing Big Ben that he better be 100 percent committed here forward. No one is indispensable.
2. Indianapolis Colts- Regular season play has never been the Colts down fall. They’re like a college basketball team that steam rolls through but plays beneath their abilities once tourney time comes.
3. Chicago Bears- Only 3-0 NFC team left. Can Cutler keep them rolling or will he hit a wall?
4. New Orleans Saints- Could easily be 1-2 or even 0-3. They’ve got some work to do or they could be in for a division title fight with Atlanta. If the Saints do not get home field edge in the playoffs, they’re a totally different team.
5. New York Jets- Offense has some rhythm to it. The signing of LT is being under played but he is outdoing Shonne Greene by a large margin currently.
6. Green Bay Packers- Tough Monday Night loss, but no one’s too worried on where their season is headed. If Aaron Rodgers is healthy there is no ceiling to what this team can do.
7. New England Patriots- Brady is lasering and zipping throws familiar to his style a few years ago. Resigning Moss may be a good idea if you’re in the Patriot front office.
8. Houston Texans- Had a tough opponent in a must win game. Their offense was limited which was a shock.
9. Baltimore Ravens- Defense is not dominating the way were use to. That means the offense will have more of a burden than in years past. The tools are in place to win offensively. Flacco will have to show his growth to keep the Ravens thriving in a tough conference.
10. Minnesota Vikings- An ugly ugly win. Favre will have his ace back soon in Sidney Rice. Hopefully they can be one game above .500 at that point.
11. Tennessee Titans- This team is very suspect. New York basically handed this past weeks win to the Titans. Chris Johnson’s getting a ton of carries early on this season. Too many and they’ll wear him down for the stretch run. We’ve seen over carries leak over to running backs performances the next season.
12. Dallas Cowboys- An 0-2 start and everyone panicked. Dallas will be fine and make they’re early rust dissipate.
13. Philadelphia Eagles- Is Vick playing at an MVP level? The offensive line is playing poorly and will have to get better for this team to be a serious contender.
14. Kansas City Chiefs- 3-0 but were still not buying the Chiefs.
15. Atlanta Falcons- Matt Ryan looked the best he has in probably a full seasons games worth.
16. Miami Dolphins- The defense has to tackle better and limit big plays over the middle, especially at home.
17. Cincinnati Bengals- Carson Palmer seems to have hit the Jake Delhomme wall. His vision and throws down the field look third string caliber.
18. San Diego Chargers- Front office is destroying a team that had promise.
19. Washington Redskins- The talent is just not around McNabb. Heading to Philly for a blowout type setup game has to have McNabb ticked.
20. Denver Broncos- Game management inside the red zone was atrocious by the Broncos. The coaching staff made too many blunders that ultimately cost them an opportunity for a win.

Best of the Rest
21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
22. Arizona Cardinals
23. Seattle Seahawks
24. NY Giants
25. Oakland Raiders
26. San Francisco 49ers
27. Jacksonville Jaguars
28. St. Louis Rams
29. Detroit Lions
30. Cleveland Browns
31. Buffalo Bills
32. Carolina Panthers
