Our NFL power rankings following the completion of week 4 of the season are rapidly changing after yet another wild week on the field. We are exactly one quarter of the way through the season, which is a great measuring stick for most teams.
In some cases, the bad stayed bad as teams like the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders remained winless. The unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles fell to the previously disappointing San Francisco 49ers, who started the season 1-2 and looked like a team on the decline.
The Tampa Bay Bucs, who started 0-3, put together a fierce comeback to defeat the Pittsburgh Steelers, who themselves had blown out the Carolina Panthers at home in week three. And of course, Steve Smith and the Ravens laid the wood on the Panthers as they moved to 3-1 in dominant fashion.
A crazy Sunday was capped off with the Saints getting defeated on the road once again, joining the Falcons in away game futility. With so many wild finishes each week, how did everyone fare in the power rankings? Take a look by cycling through the following pages and tell us if we got it right or wrong in the comments below.
