Week three of the NFL season has now come to a close, after the Broncos whooping of the Raiders on Monday night, so just like last week, I’m here to give you my NFL Power Rankings as we head into week four. This was arguably the most wild week so far, as we saw the number three, number three, five and seven teams all fall out after incredibly disappointing performances to continue their very disappointing seasons. This was an incredibly enjoyable weekend of football with upsets all over the place, so lets jump right into things with the number one team for a second week in a row…

    Maybe you made a typo, but Jimmy Graham had 9 receptions and two TD’s not Colston…and you are incorrect about throwing in the cold…I don’t know where this house wives’ fallacy comes from…but you are correct about running being a necessity in the playoffs but more so to control clock to rest that very good defense…(imagine that, a coach named Ryan coaching a defense)…Until we get through the New England, Chicago, Miami gauntlet with 2 or more wins, I will reserve my demand for a #1 ranking…and as far as teams that defend the pass better…Tampa and Arizona were ranked high against the pass until they played an elite QB… like Drew who posted 300+ on both of them…not many defenses that are ranked high against the pass have played elite PASSING qb’s like Brees, Rogers, P. Manning…so I counter that with perhaps those top Passing Defenses have to prove themselves against our offense which has proven over the last 6 years and counting that there is an 80% chance of them getting 3 TD’s in the air and a 90% chance of throwing for 300+ yards no matter who you are…hands down the best receiving corp (in terms of talent and depth and counting Sproles, Thomas, and both TE’s) and the one of three of the most elite QB’s playing…Chicago vs. Nola will determine home field advantage this year for NFC, Seattle and Chicago are great, but I don’t see them coming out of their divisions as clean as new orleans right now…unless Carolina has something to say about that (doubt it)…

      Yeah, for some reason I read Colston as having two TDs. My mistake, it’s fixed now.
