NFL Power Rankings: Eagles join Bills as the NFL’s top teams

The Eagles join the Bills atop the NerdBall NFL Power Rankings. Here's how the teams stack up after three weeks of games.

Welcome to the NerdBall NFL Power Rankings. We love data here, and produce many statistics to help you identify those edges needed to help you win your fantasy leagues and make money playing DFS or betting on NFL games. One of the key stats we bring to you are out team NEFF ratings, a statistical analysis of team performance that allows us to rank the 32 NFL teams to show you who’s statistically good (and not so good).

In these weekly power rankings, I am going to take those NEFF rankings and look to layer on my own tape review of each team to give an alternative view of how the teams in the NFL should be ranked, with some short commentary over why the teams are ranked where they are.

Without further ado, let’s get into my NFL power rankings heading into Week 4.

RankTeamLast Week+/-NEFF RankONEFF RankDNEFF RankNotes
1Buffalo Bills
10112A disappointing result in Miami but the Bills remain the team to beat
2Philadelphia Eagles
424410Another dominant win moves the Eagles up to be the top rated team in the AFC
3Kansas City Chiefs
2-16613They lost but should have beaten the Colts. I still very much believe in this Chiefs team
4Miami Dolphins
6211826Beating the best and staying perfect moves you up. Defense needs to tighten up or they wont stay unbeaten for much longer
5Tampa Bay Buccaneers
3-28231Drop a couple of spots as the offense is erratic with all the injuries but still a top tier team
6Los Angeles Rams
5-1141917Moved the Rams down despite winning as results are outpacing performances in 2022
7Baltimore Ravens
818524Lamar is on an MVP tear again but that defense is a liability at the moment
8Minnesota Vikings
102121321Bounced back to beat the frisky Lions, though where had Justin Jefferson gone?
9Green Bay Packers
112191112Ground out a victory against the Bucs to move up the rankings
10Jacksonville Jaguars
166274Injuries to the Chargers aside, the Jaguars dominated on the road and have made a considerable leap under Doug Pedersen
11Cleveland Browns
1327319Back on track against the Steelers, with one of the best rushing attacks in the league
12San Francisco 49ers
9-35233Disappointing loss and Jimmy G not as assured as I hoped he would be. Defense as advertsied though
13Dallas Cowboys
1963118Highest move up the rankings with the news Dak could be back within a couple of weeks. Defense remains a fierce unit
14Los Angeles Chargers
7-7161320The injury jinx looks to have struck again and they were soundly beaten by the Jaguars
15New Orleans Saints
12-3202214A bad defeat to the Panthers and some offensive injuries has the arrow pointing down for the Saints as they head to London
16Detroit Lions
14-212231Offensive injuries and a swing door defense has me worried the Lions will continue to drop down the rankings
17Denver Broncos
20315215Some signs the Broncos may be turning the corner but far from the finished article
18Arizona Cardinals
17-128932I may be a little high on the Cardinals but Kyler is the X-Factor to get their season on track
19Cincinnati Bengals
22322257Much better from the Bengals and their season is back on track
20Pittsburgh Steelers
211232018Dominated by the Browns and lacking oomph on offense. Could this be Mike Tomlin's first losing season?
21New England Patriots
15-6101316The Mac Jones injury massively impacts the Patriots' chances in 2022
22Atlanta Falcons
25326928A frisky offense makes the Falcons watchable, but the defensive issues will be what kills their season
23New York Giants
18-5322921Despite the score, the Giants were soundly beaten by Dallas and looked more like what we thought they'd be. At least Saquon is fun to watch
24Tennessee Titans
273301829Much more like their old selves last week on offense but a long way to go
25Washington Commanders
23-2211627Blown away by the Eagles and looking very much like a bottom 10 team in 2022
26New York Jets
24-2262821Will the Jets be any better with Zach Wilson potentially returning in Week 4. They need him to be the man they drafted
27Carolina Panthers
29218309Stomped on a hurt Saints team but still a poor looking team
28Indianapolis Colts
313293215Sneaked a victory against the Chiefs but hopefully it is the catalyst for some better performances
29Las Vegas Raiders
26-3311730The talent on this team alone keeps them out of the bottom 3. Good time for a bye week to get themselves right
30Chicago Bears
322253111No offense to speak of but two wins. Sign of a good team right? RIGHT?
31Seattle Seahawks
30-1242624The Seahawks are a hard watch but I think they'd just about beat the Texans. Just.
32Houston Texans
28-417276Another close defeat but wins are going to be hard to come by for the Texans
