Week Four Power Rankings (NFL)

1. New England Patriots– They just continue to skip to the beat. Another week, not a single offensive touchdown has been given up by their defense. As a former defensive player, myself, this is exciting to watch. I have a feeling the offense will try to run the ball more and when they do, that’ll be scary because when they consistently establish their ground game, they’re even tougher to beat in my opinion. They will aim for their first 4-0 start since 2015. Today, it’s a battle with another unbeaten team, the Buffalo Bills.

2. Kansas City Chiefs– It’s safe to say Patrick Mahomes is silencing those who said he’d fall off this year. He’s off to another fast start and could be on his way to winning league MVP again. He had his way against the Ravens last week throwing for 374 yards passing and three touchdown passes in a 33-28 victory. Even with some injuries, the Chiefs are getting contributions from others. For their third straight 4-0 start, they will look to take down the Detroit Lions.

3. Dallas Cowboys– They sit at 3-0 for the first time since 2008. However, their game against the Dolphins wasn’t all that it was cracked up to be. Once the Cowboys settled in, it was all over from there. I’m enjoying what I’m seeing from them. Some could even make a case for them to be the best team in the NFC. They have a showdown with the Saints tonight in New Orleans.

4. Los Angeles Rams– Their defense stepped up big time in Cleveland on Sunday night. That was my biggest takeaway. The biggest moment came when Cleveland moved the ball deep into the red zone and the Rams clamped down and forced three incompletions along with an interception from John Johnson. The one thing I’m concerned about is Jared Goff and how he looks out of rhythm. He must play better and there’s no excuse, especially with all his weapons being healthy.

5. Buffalo Bills– You can wipe your eyes; this isn’t a typo. The Buffalo Bills are 3-0 for the first time since 2011. Their defense continues to fly under the radar, and they haven’t given up 400 yards of offense in 15 games which is the longest streak in the NFL right now. Josh Allen continues to take care of the ball; the defense does its part. I’m just seeing a solid all-around effort from them. In comes New England to town. This is their biggest game in quite some time.
