PFT’s Week Five power rankings

Getty Images

1. Chiefs (previously No. 1; 4-0): Another year, another 4-0 start.

2. Seahawks (No. 2; 4-0): They play better at 1:00 ET than most East Coast teams do.

3. Bills (No. 4; 4-0): The Josh Allen injury scare underscores how important he is to the team; his replacement is (checks notes) Matt Barkley.

4. Packers (No. 5; 4-0): Imagine how good they’d be if they’d used their first-round pick on a receiver.

5. Ravens (No. 6; 3-1): The Kryptonite bounce-back game went much better this year than last year.

6. Patriots (No. 3; 2-2): Record notwithstanding, this team is built to contend.

7 Buccaneers (No. 8; 3-1): I’m feeling a lot better about my NFC Super Bowl pick than I did three weeks ago.

8. Titans (No. 7; 3-0): They didn’t play this week, but it sure feels like they lost.

9. Steelers (No. 9; 3-0): Once the offense gets rolling, they’ll be very tough to beat.

10. Saints (No. 10; 2-2): When Michael Thomas returns, they’ll be the team they’ve been the last few years.

11. Colts (No. 14; 3-1): How is a team this good flying under so far under the national radar? That won’t last much longer.

12. Rams (No. 13; 3-1): A win is a win, but if they can’t run the ball, the wins will be harder to come by.

13. Browns (No. 18; 3-1): Kevin Stefanski is proving just how big of a mistake the Freddie Kitchens experiment was.

14. Bears (No. 12; 3-1): It was fun while it lasted.

15. Panthers (No. 22; 2-2): They’re both rebuilding and contending.

16. 49ers (No. 11; 2-2): With a murderer’s row of opponents looming, the 49ers need to get their act together quickly.

17. Cowboys (No. 15; 1-3): Dak Prescott will set the single-season passing yardage record. They’ll win six games. And they’ll host a postseason contest.

18. Raiders (No. 16; 2-2): Derek Carr is sick of losing. Derek Carr overlooks his own responsibility for it.

19. Cardinals (No. 17; 2-2): If teams keep Kyler Murray in the pocket, he can’t do Kyler Murray things.

20. Chargers (No. 19; 1-3): Justin Herbert is the future, but the present is still murky.

21. Dolphins (No. 20; 1-3): The clock once again cries out that it’s Tua Time.

22. Eagles (No. 26; 1-2-1): The fact that this team technically is in first place in the NFC East shows just how bad the NFC East is.

23. Bengals (No. 27; 1-2-1): They’re moving in the right direction. This weekend against Baltimore, they’ll find out how far they still have to go.

24. Broncos (No. 29; 1-3): The seventh seed isn’t out of the question, if they can get Drew Lock back soon.

25. Vikings (No. 30; 1-3): #LetDalvinCook.

26. Lions (No. 23; 1-3): Jim Caldwell was 36-28. They’ve gone 10-25-1 since then.

27. Washington (No. 24; 1-3): The sooner they switch to Alex Smith, they sooner they make a run at winning the weakest division in football.

28. Jaguars (No. 25; 1-3): If they only played games in the AFC South, they’d be fine.

29. Falcons (No. 28; 0-4): At least they have new uniforms.

30. Texans (No. 21; 0-4): They may not be tanking for Trevor, but they could be tanking for Trevor’s head coach.

31. Giants (No. 31; 0-4): Does covering a double-digit spread count for anything?

32. Jets (No. 32; 0-4): Find the win between now and the Week 11 bye.

  1. The Lions would lose to #27-32. Patrica would get outcoached by my local high school coach who is also a math teacher.

  2. Wow – keep throwing the shade for Pack not picking a WR in the 1st round in the Power Rankings. Dallas drafted a WR in the 1st round and they are a bad football team now. Minnesota didnt draft a future QB / tradebait and are paying a backup QB starter money. They are a bad team too.

  3. Despite their record the Chiefs have not looked great in some games.

    Packers will be dangerous when everyone is healthy.

    Seahawks & Packers top two teams in my mind.

  4. Not as cool sounding as “Suck for Luck”, but some of the bottom feeders go to kick off their “Endeavor for Trevor” or “Abhorrence for Lawrence” campaigns.

  5. Tell us how good the Packers would be. Would we be 10-0 somehow? 78 points instead of 38 a game?

  6. Patriots too high. Everyone is thinking it. I’m saying it. They shouldn’t be above the Colts. Browns aren’t getting enough credit. Packers and Bills should be swapped, if only because Rodgers is ahead of Allen in the MVP race thus far. It’s basically 1a Rodgers 1b Wilson, with Allen trailing a bit behind both and Mahomes looming, ready to take over at any time

  7. The pats love is getting ridiculous. How many loses do they need in their first month to drop them out of the top 5? More then 50% apparently

  8. broncos and the seventh seed? it’ll be tough;
    buf and ne
    pitt, bal and cle
    indy and tenn
    kc
    those 8 teams surely will have better records than denver barring injury.

  9. Dolphins hung with the Seahawks who you have ranked as the second best team and you knock them down a spot?? Whatever.

  10. “23. Bengals (No. 27; 1-2-1): They’re moving in the right direction. This weekend against Baltimore, they’ll find out how far they still have to go.”

    Agree.
    GEAUX JEAUX

  11. Ravens are going to massacre my Bengals unfortunately. We can’t stop the run. The Patriots “D” really impresses me since they have lost so many starters and still contend. When Newton comes back Patriots are going to be dangerous.

  12. I laughed when I read the comment about the Packers not drafting a WR with their first pick. I guess that will always be brought up until such time as Jordan Love is their QB (or not).
    The fact is, the Packers WR’s and TE’s are far better than anyone is giving them credit for, and their RB’s are great pass catchers out of the backfield, too.
    They key for any passing attack is being able to run the ball, and the Packers do that very well.
    Throw in that Aaron Rodgers make every receiver better, no matter what position he plays, and the Packers are in very good shape.
    As for the rankings here, I have no problem with anything. But I do think the Niners will rise dramatically once they get healthy. They still have a lot of talent on that team.
    I also think the Steelers are going to shock everyone by winning the AFC. Their defense is that good.

  13. The Bills are two games ahead of my Patriots in the AFCE. The upside of the Bills winning the division is T6 promised to leave PFT forever if the Pats don’t win the division.

  14. The 2020 Saints and Patriots are not their 2019 incarnations and do not belong in the top 10 with their 2-2 records. Also, Dallas is way too high.

  15. Packers (No. 5; 4-0): Imagine how good they’d be if they’d used their first-round pick on a receiver.

    ///

    Yep, they might be averaging more than 38 points per game.

  16. I’ll say it a little louder for those in the back – “THE PACKERS DIDN’T NEED TO DRAFT A RECEIVER!!!!!”
    They had plenty of confidence that their 2nd year guys would make the leap (and they did).

  17. “ImAgInE hOw GoOd ThEy’D bE iF tHeY’d UsEd ThEiR fIrSt RoUnD pIcK oN a ReCeIvEr.”

    I think Matt LaFleur and Aaron Rodgers have thoroughly proven this statement to be just plain silly and dumb, though I’m sure this site, as well as other detractors, will continue to beat this old, tired drum.

    Gutenkunst drafted for the future in the early rounds and I have no problem with that.
    If he erred in any way, it was by not snapping up another run stopper to pair with Kenny Clark, or an ILB to help the interior defense.

  18. “Tell us how good the Packers would be. Would we be 10-0 somehow? 78 points instead of 38 a game?”

    He was making a joke.he and the rest of the NFLs fandom,especially Packer fans, who thought they knew more than the Packers top brass in what they needed most(a slick reciever)have now after four games come to realize the Packers have much more than Adams and MVS that can catch Rogers passes and really didnt need to waste a first round reciever who may not have been successful in the pro game, as many dont.

  19. You ranked the JETS as #32. That is incorrect. They are #72, after all the defunct teams in the AAFL, USFL and WFL.

    Dallas drafted a WR in the 1st round and they are a bad football team now.
    ———————————————————————————–
    Dude, seriously??? Dallas needed 11 picks in the first round for that Defense. CeeDee is a GREAT pick if you only have one pick…I would take CeeDee anytime at 17…be STUPID not to.

  21. Please stop the with the GB receiver discussion. That was the most overhyped story in the NFL. First, GB had receivers that they just need to develop. Why start over again. Second, what are all of the 1st round receivers doing this year or any year for that matter. Nothing too ground breaking. Third, you already have a solid #1 in Parker. How many team have two #1s anyway?

  22. Florio, really? Rail on something else that matters. Almost 40 points a game, 4-0, one of the top teams in the NFC. Thinking the Packers offense wouldn’t be much better with a 1st round receiver playing … he probably wouldn’t even be starting.

  23. Bills fan…. a little high, maybe 4/5th but I’ll take it this early. I can’t see rating them above the Packers, but the other teams sure. Defense needs to button it up, they are not playing like last year. TN and KC are good tests. And for the pats fan who said T6 would leave PFT forever if the Bills win division. That’s just good news for humanity in general

  24. I don’t think people are getting the bit about the Packers drafting a wide receiver. What he’s trying to say is that the point is ludicrous now because the Packers look great this year.

    Packer fans are so sensitive. I wonder who they learned that from?

  25. Aaron Rodgers and Matt Ryan have been to the same number of Super Bowls, one.

    Russ went to back to back SBs

    _______________________________

    They drafted a QB and FB/RB in the first 2 rounds when they got embarrassed by SF’s running game (twice) last year. And so far this year their Defense has been helped by their Offense being on fire early in the season

    Their Offense is ALWAYS going to be good under Rodgers – their problem is and has ALWAYS been a crap Defense. Rodgers has had 1 SINGLE year with a top 10 Defense and he won a SB with it.

    They needed to draft for Defense and instead loaded up on the 2 positions (QB and RB) where they are the strongest.

    So – maybe they never needed a 1st round WR – but they did need and still need Defensive help to get out of the Conference in January

    *******************************************

    Only your delusional thinking thinks Pats too high. We almost beat the Seahawks in Seattle and hung with the Chiefs in KC with our backup QB’s and top RB out. And won the other 2 we should have won. If we start losing to the Jets and Jags then you’ll be justified so deal with it.

  33. The Packers should be above the Seahawks, GB is the more complete team and has won games more decisively.

  34. To all the Packer fans….your team might be showing right now that they didn’t need another WR. But it sure would be more valuable than a QB sitting idly on the bench contributing nothing for the next 2-3 years.

    You’re telling me you wouldn’t rather have a defensive starter over drafting a backup QB AND RB in the 1st and 2nd rounds?

  35. giants fan here, yet again we are ranked too high…..oh and i took the rams points on them last week lol they can’t even lose right

  36. Cowboys continue to be the most overhyped / overrated team year in and year out. The fact is, they are one boneheaded onside kick away from being 0-4. “But they are so talented, it was all Jason Garrett’s fault!”. Same results year in and year out! Rinse, wash, repeat. Mike, it’s about time you stop focusing on meaningless fantasy football stats and focus on what matters (Wins, division titles, conference titles, Super Bowls). Dak puts up lots of yards in garbage time / mop up duty in the 4th QTR. when they are down by 20 pts.

    ^^^^^^^^^

    Yes, we’re telling you EXACTLY that. Green Bay takes the long-term view. Addressing short term perceived needs is not the road to long term success in the NFL.

  38. Some of you sure are surly for being 4-0 right now. Florio isn’t wrong to say the Packers should have picked a WR this year. And he is absolutely correct to say they’d be better. What, you think playing 3rd and 4th WR’s won’t come back to bite you? Falcons are horrible. Vikings defense is a shell of what it was just a year ago. The Lions remain the Lions. And they nipped a struggling Saints team. Yes, the Packers are very good. Playing really, really well. But it’s a long season.

  39. I dislike the Bengals and the city!! But, Cincinnati may not have to look to far to see how close they are. Baltimore’s swiss cheese defensive backfield is ranked 26th. Burrow is on a pace to break Andrew Luck’s rookie passing yardage and already has 1,121 passing yds. If, the Ravens play that rinky dink zone against this kid, he might just unload on them. Absent a pass rush, Burrow could have a career day Sunday.

    @@@@@@@222

    pack fan feeling full of themselves again. 3 of the four teams gb has beaten this year have a combined 2-10 record, while having the 31st, 29th and 27th ranked defense. The question is, only 38 points?

  41. Forget about the wide receiver. They drafted a running back in the second round who has 8 carries for 34 yards. A second-round running back is supposed to be an instant starter. They knew they had Aaron Jones for this year and then would be letting him go, but then you draft the running back next year. They really could have improved that defense but chose to ignore it while building for the future during a short window to win now.

  42. 27. Washington (No. 24; 1-3): The sooner they switch to Alex Smith, they sooner they make a run at winning the weakest division in football.
    ———————————————————————————————
    So Alex Smith behind the worst tackle in the NFL?? Yeah he’d be back in the hospital in no time!!!

  43. May be true, but with their regular D players coming back from crazy injuries over the next couple weeks the D will get far better – and SEA has played some solid teams.

  44. Sarcasm from Florio about wide receiver .. really?! Read what you want into the statement but very much doubt it was sarcasm. If it aint Vikings, it aint good.

  45. The comment about the Packers being better if they used first round pick on WR is non-sensical. They are 4-0 and I think leading the league in scoring.

    ___________________

    When you compare who they played and lost to then yeah it would seem logical having the Cowboys ranked higher. The Cowboys 3 losses came to teams combined 10-2(Rams, Seahawks, and Browns). The Eagles lost to the Washington Football Team and had a tie against the Bengals.

  47. Why would a 3-1 team rank 5 and a 3-0 rank 9, Ravens showed last week that they are far from elite, Lamar has been exposed

    You’re on here every week saying the same thing, which is, in fact, just crying about other people’s comments. Get a life.

  49. Haven’t read any articles on the NE KC game, but the Chefs didn’t look the same battling the Pats D. Pats D won the first half – 3 qtrs of that game handily. Not sure how – as in what specific game plan tactics they employed – but KC did not look the same. Both Mahomes TD ‘passes’ were flips to a sweeping RB in effect.

    The Pats O was equally bad as the D was good. Left at least 13 points on the field. Not to mention the absurd blown call by the refs and BB’s inexplicable non challenge on what shoulda/coulda/woulda been a Defensive TD.
    Mahomes looked pretty average. A blueprint laid out by Belichick, once again.

    —————————————-

    Insanely dumb comment. Rodgers was arguably the BEST Qb in that draft class and he FELL, let me repeat that for the folks in the back – F.E.L.L … FELL to the Pack.

    Love is a a PROJECT QB who MAYBE was a 2nd round talent and isn’t ready to play in the League – and the Pack REACHED for him when what they needed was a couple of run-stuffers! And let me add – Love is no Rodgers. And then to prove they can out do their own stupid, they draft a slow RB in the 2nd round when they have Williams an Jones – makes ZERO sense.

    Be fan of the team, but don’t be a blind fanboy. It’s not a good look for a grown-a@@ man.

    I love Rodgers and think he has been repeatedly dealt an ugly hand by his Management. Dom Capers was a complete mess for like a decade and McCarthy couldn’t design a single pass play that didn’t require Rodgers to hold the ball for 5 seconds …

    If Rodgers had just a serviceable Defense all these years he would have been in the GOAT conversation instead of only 1 Sb win (with his only Top 10 Defense!).

    They are winning now – but they need a Defense to get out of their Conference – San Fran showed them that last year. Rodgers deserves better

  53. Well the Packers didn’t use their first round pick on a receiver, so get over it, and they are still 4-0. When Rogers is gone and Love is winning more championships for the Pack what will you say then.

  54. Lawrence is better than Darnold, but if he goes to the Jets it looks like it will kill his career. Of all teams, they seem to be the most hopeless. Of course, it looks like there’s no chance Gase stays on, so who knows how things will look by then.

    Regarding Packers receivers, I think what top-flight receivers give you is the ability to move up another gear when the playoffs roll around. If there’s a story for the Packers and the playoff since their last SB win, it’s not being able to find that extra gear that the best teams have when playing the best, and coming up just short as a result.

    So they surely look great and I hope it holds up, but we’ll see if the outcome changes in the end.

    ==

    You’re either a project or a second-round talent. The two do not overlap, therefore you are one or the other.
    I don’t pretend to know whether Jordan Love will pan out or not. But many had him projected to go anywhere from the middle of the first round to the top of the third. A “project” is a much later-round guy who has some physical talent you may be able to develop over time.
    I can’t tell if you don’t really understand the term, or if you just got emotional and wanted to lash out. Either way, your assertion is off-base.

  56. Seahawks too high, they would lose to the 3 teams below them. They have not beat a team that has a winning record.

  57. Who cares about who the Packers drafted? Let’s talk about the only team that really matters! Currently being disrespected in the bottom third of the rankings, Minnesota sent a message to the rest of the NFL this week. Not only do they have the best running back in the game, the best young receiver in the game (Jefferson) to go along with a dominant veteran (Thielen), a QB who can light you up at any minute with the long ball, and the best coaching staff in the game, everyone forgets they still have one of (if not the) top defenses in the league! This team is built for the long haul and they just checked off their first of many wins this year, on their way to home field advantage throughout the playoffs (an NO ONE wants to play in that stadium in January!!).

  58. 4. Packers (No. 5; 4-0): Imagine how good they’d be if they’d used their first-round pick on a receiver.

  59. Notwithstanding…I thought these were Power rankings as of today, not where you think a team will finish at the end of the season. Pats and Saints are both still to high at the quarter pole of the season.

    Bucs, Colts, Titans, Steelers & Browns should be ranked ahead of both of them.

  60. GB is putting up 35 points a game, and 4-0. I’m not sure and rookie receivers would make the team better from a wins or points scored perspective.

    They’re a .500 team and there are six teams in the league undefeated currently. Patriots shouldn’t be in top six. That’s all. Top 10 in the upper half, sure. I may be nitpicking but I’m not lying

    I don’t pretend to know whether Jordan Love will pan out or not. But many had him projected to go anywhere from the middle of the first round to the top of the third. A “project” is a much later-round guy who has some physical talent you may be able to develop over time.
    I can’t tell if you don’t really understand the term, or if you just got emotional and wanted to lash out. Either way, your assertion is off-base.

    I disagree with this assessment. I think Josh Allen was a project who was a first round talent. A project is just someone who needs extra time and work to bring the talent out.

    When you compare who they played and lost to then yeah it would seem logical having the Cowboys ranked higher. The Cowboys 3 losses came to teams combined 10-2(Rams, Seahawks, and Browns). The Eagles lost to the Washington Football Team and had a tie against the Bengals.

    ————————————————–

    With that line of reasoning, the Cowboys’ lone win came against an 0-4 team, yet the Eagles’ came against a 2-2 team. That would imply the Cowboys can only win (and barely, at that!) against demonstrably bad teams, whereas the Eagles can beat average (or above) teams.

  66. They’re a .500 team and there are six teams in the league undefeated currently. Patriots shouldn’t be in top six. That’s all. Top 10 in the upper half, sure. I may be nitpicking but I’m not lying

    This is power rankings, not the standings. If you want everything based on record, just look at the standings, but thats not how power rankings work.
