ESPN's Power Ranking "1. Denver Broncos 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No. 5 QB Trevor Siemian is getting better by the week and that could be a scary thing for the rest of the NFL. The reigning champs still have a top defense and plenty of skill on offense. The Broncos head east to face the turnover-prone Bucs in Week 4. 2. New England Patriots 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No. 1 Hey Bill, just start Julian Edelman at quarterback this week against the Bills. You've won with a second- and third-stringer this season, so go for gold. The rest of the AFC East teams are all 1-2, and FPI gives your team the best odds at making the playoffs (94 percent). Just do it. 3. Seattle Seahawks 2016 record: 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No. 10 The Seahawks looked like the Seahawks in Week 3, but QB Russell Wilson continues to take some nasty hits. The good news is that despite the offensive struggles for most of the season, the defense has allowed only 37 points. Seattle plays at the Jets next. 4. Minnesota Vikings 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No. 7 The Vikings lead the NFL in sacks and have allowed the third-fewest points (13.3 per game). Quarterbacks Sam Bradford and Shaun Hill have played well, but it is the defense that has carried the Vikings to their 3-0 start. The Vikings host the Giants on Monday night in Week 4. 5. Arizona Cardinals 2016 record: 1-2 Week 3 ranking: No. 3 Should we start worrying about Arizona? Including playoffs, the Cardinals are 2-4 in their past six games and have lost by 15-plus points three times. Seems unlikely to happen again this week at home against the Rams, but who knows how QB Carson Palmer and the Cardinals will bounce back? 6. Green Bay Packers 2016 record: 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No. 9 Is something wrong with QB Aaron Rodgers? Guess not. Rodgers threw for four touchdowns before halftime to beat the Lions and push the Packers to 2-1. The Packers enjoy a bye this week, and should get comfy ... they won't be leaving Green Bay again until Halloween. 7. Philadelphia Eagles 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No. 15 The Eagles head into their bye week 3-0 behind a rookie head coach and a rookie quarterback who has yet to turn over the ball. The Eagles also have allowed only 27 points through three weeks, best in the NFL. 8. Carolina Panthers 2016 record: 1-2 Week 3 ranking: No. 4 It took the Panthers three games to match their 2015 loss total (including playoffs). The hits are piling up for QB Cam Newton, but that soft Falcons pass rush could provide much-needed relief in Week 4. 9. Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 record: 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No. 2 What was that? Three points when you want to average 30? That's ... not good. QB Ben Roethlisberger has completed less than 55 percent of his passes the past two weeks, and now has to face a Chiefs team that intercepted six passes in Week 3. 10. Baltimore Ravens 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No. 13 The Ravens are unbeaten but those three wins came by a combined 13 points. That's the third-lowest points differential for a team that started a season 3-0 in the past 15 years. The 2-1 Raiders provide a tough test on Sunday." - Via ESPN/ ESPN Stats & Information contributed the following information.
Djack's Power Ranking 1. New England Patriots 2016 record:3-0 Week 3 ranking: No.2 No QB, no problem, the Patriots have been able to win soundly without Brady under center, and I don't expect for that to change against Buffalo. I also don't expect the Patriots to move from the number 1 spot for awhile with Brady coming back next week. 2. Minnesota Vikings 2016 record:3-0 Week 3 ranking: No.6 Despite being decimated by injuries on the offensive side of the ball, the Vikings haven't missed a beat. The defense is top 2 in the league with Denver and Sam Bradford has actually proven to be a much better quarterback than Teddy Bridgewater. The Vikings are now the team to beat in the North. 3. Denver Broncos 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: No.5 Best defense in the NFL and it's not even close, I still can't buy into their offense even though Siemian went on the road and lit the Bengals up. This offense will get exposed soon enough and the Broncos will tank, but until then this defense is going to prey on every offense in the league, and win games while doing it. 4. Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 record 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No.1 Steelers laid an egg against the Eagles, but I'm not going to overreact and say that they aren't the elite team we thought they were because of that. They get LeVeon Bell back this week so that adds another lethal weapon to this offense. Steelers will bounce back after a tough loss against the hottest team in football. 5. Seattle Seahawks 2016 record 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No. 9 Seahawks bounce back from an awful loss against the Rams and absolutely decimated the 49ers. The offense got its feet back under them and started really clicking before Wilson got hurt, he will play this week so I don't expect any setbacks. Seattle should cruise to 11 wins from here on out, this is a very well rounded football team. 6.Green Bay Packers 2016 record: 2-1 Week 3 ranking: No.10 Packers offense got back on track last week as they showed everyone that they were just in one of their classic early season slumps. The defense isn't anything special but as long as they have Rodgers there shouldn't be many problems for the Packers. 7. Kansas City Chiefs 2016 record: 2-1 Week 3 ranking: N/A I really like the Chiefs after this weeks performance, the defense proved they're full of playmakers, and the offense will be getting Jamal Charles back very soon. The Chiefs are a very well coached team and I think this a team that'll stick around in the top 10 for the rest of the season. 8. Philadelphia Eagles 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: N/A The dark horse team of the 2016 season, I don't know how long they can maintain playing at this level, but Carson Wentz sure looks like the real deal. As a Giants fan I couldn't be more furious, looks like the rebuild process in Philadelphia developed sooner than originally thought. 9. Baltimore Ravens 2016 record: 3-0 Week 3 ranking: N/A I feel obligated to put them in here because they're 3-0, no other reason whatsoever. Don't think they'll be here long, they've played some bad teams and barely beat them, Ravens aren't the real deal they remind me of last year's Falcons. 10. Carolina Panthers 2016 record: 1-2 Week 3 ranking: No.8 The Panthers have had to play the two best defenses in football to start the season so it's really hard to tell whether or not their offense just stinks this year or they are just playing astonishing defenses. I'm assuming that it's the defenses they played against. Also let's not forget riots are occurring all over downtown Charlotte where a lot of these guys live, if you don't think that's effecting their play, you're not human.
