ESPN's Power Ranking "1. Denver Broncos 2016 record: 4-0 Week 4 ranking: No. 1 You can run but you really can't hide from this Broncos pass rush. Denver has pressured opposing quarterbacks on a league-best 38.4 percent of dropbacks. Next highest? 32.3 percent (Bills). 2. Seattle Seahawks 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 3 The Seahawks have played four games this season and in each game, their opponents have failed to score 20 points. If this pace keeps up, Seattle could allow the fewest points for the fifth consecutive season. 3. Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 9 The Steelers' offense wanted to average 30 points per game this season, and a 43-point effort in Week 4 will help erase the three-point effort from the week before. The Steelers are currently averaging 27 points per game. 4. New England Patriots 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 2 If Tom Brady, who dons No. 12, had an entrance song, it'd be time to cue his music. The Patriots are 3-1 as Brady returns to their lineup and the rest of the league is on notice. The Patriots have a .771 winning percentage under Brady since 2001. 5. Minnesota Vikings 2016 record: 4-0 Week 4 ranking: No. 4 +10: The Vikings are 4-0 for the first time since 2009, and they are doing it behind a combo of solid offense and defense. The Vikings have committed one turnover with 11 takeaways, good for an NFL-best plus-10 turnover differential. 6. Green Bay Packers 2016 record: 2-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 6 So much of the talk surrounding the Packers revolves around QB Aaron Rodgers or the offense, but has anyone noticed what the defense has been doing? Specifically, the 1.8 yards per rush allowed so far? Every other team is allowing at least 3.1 yards per rush. 7. Philadelphia Eagles 2016 record: 3-0 Week 4 ranking: No. 7 Rookie QB Carson Wentz has been great, but don't forget the defense in Philadelphia, which has allowed 27 points in three games. The last Eagles team to allow that few points in the first three games was the 1992 squad that went 11-5. 8. Atlanta Falcons 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 18 The Falcons have scored at least 35 points in three straight games and have now scored 152 points on the season. The 2013 Broncos, 2002 Raiders and 2000 Rams are the only teams in the past 20 years to score that many points in the first four games of the season. 9. Oakland Raiders 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No. 14 The Raiders sit 3-1 through four games and you can't blame Raider Nation for being excited. The Raiders haven't been 3-1 or better through four games since the 2002 season, which also happens to be their last Super Bowl appearance. 10. Cincinnati Bengals 2016 record: 2-2 Week 4 ranking: No. 13 A.J. Green is somehow getting better. He has caught 76 percent of his targets this season and his 32 receptions and 468 receiving yards are his most through four games. He does have two drops though, so he is technically human." -Via ESPN Stats & Information contributed the following information
Djack's Power Ranking 1. New England Patriots 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No.1 Yeah they might've lost to the Buffalo Bills, but Tom Brady is back under center so that keeps them in the top spot this week despite the loss. Sorry that I can't take a loss with their 3rd string quarterback starting seriously. 2. Pittsburgh Steelers 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No.4 They Steelers offense looked unstoppable against a very good Chiefs defense, they're defense didn't look too shabby either but that's not all that impressive against a mediocre Chiefs offense. With LeVeon Bell back this offense becomes so versatile and nearly impossible to stop. 3. Denver Broncos 2016 record: 4-0 Week 4 ranking: No.3 The Broncos defense continues to prove that they can carry this team very far, they are yet to face an elite offense since the Panthers have proven they're just a mere shell of last season. The quarterback position still worries me so I don't think they'll be able to beat the cream of the crop. 4. Minnesota Vikings 2016 record: 4-0 Week 4 ranking: No.2 The Vikings didn't necessarily do anything to drop in the rankings, I just feel that the Steelers and Patriots are way better teams despite having a blemish on their record. Vikings offense is very very limited so I can't see them beating elite teams, especially if Bradford is forced to play from behind. 5. Seattle Seahawks 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No.5 The Seahawks offense looked unbelievable against the Jets, I'm not going to drop all question marks because they picked apart a dumpster fire franchise. I'm going to leave them at 5 for this week until they show me they can consistently do what they did last week. Russell Wilson should only get better as his mobility starts coming back, so they could be at the top spot in no time. 6. Philadelphia Eagles 2016 record: 3-0 Week 4 ranking: No.8 I think this may be a little premature, but their defense has looked elite so far this season only letting up 27 points in 12 quarters. If Carson Wentz can keep up this level of play this team is a force to be reckon with. 7. Oakland Raiders 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No.N/A Derek Carr proved he is the real deal last week having the gutsiest performance of the week. This offense is elite and can win in a shootout over almost any team, if this defense can get their shit together this team can be a real threat in the AFC. 8. Cincinnati Bengals 2016 record: 2-2 Week 4 ranking: N/A Bengals hit a rough stretch the previous two weeks but they cleaned that up this past week with a dominant victory over the Dolphins. Their defense got Vontaze Burfict back which is a huge boost which they clearly showed as they made the Dolphins offense ineffective. 9. Kansas City Chiefs 2016 record: 2-2 Week 4 ranking: No.7 I know they got absolute demolished by the Steelers, that's also the best offense they will play all year. Every team has a bad game here and there, Jamal Charles is going to start becoming a more focal point of the offense as he rehab progresses, so the Chiefs will be back to they're winning ways this week. 10. Atlanta Falcons 2016 record: 3-1 Week 4 ranking: No.N/A I don't even want to put them in the Top 10 but I guess have to since they have been playing good football. The Falcons do this every season, just get ready for the collapse because it'll happen sooner than you think. I'll be surprised if they can even get to 5-1 like last season before Matt Ryan and this Falcon's team gets back to their old ways.
