NFL Power Ranks: Week 4

By

Week 4 of the NFL season is in the books, and a few interesting things happened in this first true bye week of the season. The Bears win over the Eagles was the first out of division loss for an NFC East team this season. That didn’t hurt their standing much though, as all 4 teams are still part of the top 8 teams. The Giants still hold the number 1 spot, but the dominant Bills and Titans are gaining ground on them. The Redskins’ win this week in Dallas vaulted them all the way up to the #4 spot, and Tampa’s nice win over Green Bay moved them 8 spots all the way to 5th and into a tie with Carolina in the surprisingly strong NFC South.

On the downside of things, the Bengals miserable season continues. They dropped down to 30th after losing to the Browns, who moved out of the bottom 5. The Chiefs’ shocking upset of the Broncos also moved them out of the bottom 5, dropping the idle Colts back to 28th. The Rams and Lions are just awful, and even though the Lions didn’t even play this week and the Rams got blown out again, the Rams got a nice strength of schedule bump by playing 4-0 Buffalo, while the Lions’ 3 opponents this season all lost this week.

The crazy 56-35 Cardinals-Jets game this week had a huge impact on the ranks. The Jets jumped 11 spots all the way to #13, while the Cards dropped 12 spots all the way to #21. Other big gainers this week are Tampa and New Orleans while the 49ers dropped 7 spots to put the NFC West even deeper in the dumps. Here are the ranks:
