NFL Power Rankings — Baltimore Ravens in top-four to start off season
28. Miami Dolphins
This is not a great ranking, but I believe in where the Dolphins are heading. With two more first-round picks in next year’s draft and a promising coaching staff, this arrow could point up quickly. They just have a little meat on the bone left in their rebuild.
27. Chicago Bears
This is a time that could climb very quickly if Mitch Trubisky can get things under control and the defense can get back to creating havoc. Or, they will stink on ice. (Does that ice smell funny to you? Yes. Yes, it does.)
26. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals have good-to-great skill guys, an exciting rookie quarterback, and a not-awful offensive line. Ah, but they also need to play some defense. They do not.
25. New York Giants
Why are the Giants ranked as high as 25th this year? Did you see the rosters I already discussed? Also, they have a little more talent than I thought when looking at their roster. I kind of like the new coach, too.
