Baltimore Ravens drop in latest power rankings after loss to Patriots
4. New Orleans Saints, 7-2 (5)
This is another team that can shine on both sides of the ball, but there is a little anxiousness right now with the health of star quarterback Drew Brees. If he is out for any length of time, and Jameis Winston is called upon, well… Stay tuned.
3. Green Bay Packers, 7-2 (4)
They were able to outlast and ultimately beat Jacksonville because they are the Packers and the other team… was the Jaguars. It wasn’t a great performance, but this team is capable of blitzing any team in this league when hot.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers, 9-0 (2)
The league’s last undefeated team stayed that way with a dismantling of the Bengals. They have a ferocious pass rush, skilled receivers, and a quarterback who is doing an excellent job of distributing the ball and playing winning football. They are a handful.
1. Kansas City Chiefs, 8-1 (1)
They are coming off a bye, so they might even be more dangerous going forward. That is terrifying to me, and it should be terrifying to you! Until further notice, this is the team to beat in the NFL, and that could be the case for the next several years.
