NFL Top 10: Denver Broncos top Power Rankings for Week 4

Denver, Seattle, Kansas City, or New Orleans? Which team is number one, and which team should be?



*Power Rankings are not designed to tell you which team is “better” than another team or who will win next weekend. They’re not designed around Super Bowl odds or restricted to perfect records. They’re meant to tell you who impressed last weekend, who has impressed this season, and – again, and most of all – who impressed last weekend…

1. Denver Broncos (2-0-0)

Sure, they gave the Oakland Raiders 21 points tonight, and their totals against Baltimore (in Week 1) may have been a little second half-heavy. Still, they’ve scored 127 points in their first three games of 2013, and maybe Oakland’s just a little better than we think…

2. Seattle Seahawks (3-0-0)

Their win of the 49ers was a statement, and not just for the defence. Russell Wilson has been pretty much perfect for the Seahawks this year and, and Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, and Marshawn Lynch have all contributed key touchdowns at necessary moments. Still, there were mistakes made against Jacksonville… let’s hope those holes don’t grow with greater competition.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (3-0-0)

Why are they No. 3? They haven’t done anything wrong yet. What aren’t they No. 1? They haven’t done enough.

4. New Orleans Saints (3-0-0)

Give these guys a week, and they could be No. 1. Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham are connecting on every throw and the Saints have picked up like Sean Payton never left. In three games, Brees has already tossed for six touchdowns and 1,021 yards, Graham has caught 358 yards and tour TDs, and Darren Sproles is averaging 100 yards (total offence) per game.

5. Chicago Bears (3-0-0)

Sure, that Vikings win in Week 2 could have been more convincing… so, their 40 points against Pittsburgh? Yeah, that’ll do it.

6. Miami Dolphins (3-0-0)

Don’t look now, but the multi-faceted Fins could be the toast of the AFC East in 2013. (Spoiler: they are.)

7. Indianapolis Colts (2-1-0)

That win over San Francisco was noticed. If they can forget their first two weeks and build off Sunday, they should edge Houston or Tennessee for that division.

————————————————————

————————————————————

8. San Francisco 49ers (1-2-0)

I’m very aware of their record. Don’t worry about it. Any team would have lost to that Seattle squad in Week 2, and it’s possible the Colts are better than most people thought they were. Give this team 24 hours to rebound for Week 4 and the St. Louis Rams.

9. Cincinnati Bengals (2-1-0)

That Bears loss in Week 1 was a tough one to swallow, and their victory over Pittsburgh (Week 2) was pretty sloppy… Still, that topsy-turvy win over Aaron Rodgers and the Packers was enough reason to think this team could be for real, and finally.

10. Baltimore Ravens (2-1-0)

If that Week 1 loss to Peyton Manning’s seven touchdowns turned you off, just keep looking where you’re looking. The Ravens have followed that skunk up with two victories over Cleveland (meh) and Houston (nice, boys) and they’ve done it without anyone noticing.
