Thoughts/Notes on the Power Rankings:

The Kansas City Chiefs are the last undefeated team left and playing the best right now. I don't believe they're the best team in the NFL.

The Denver Broncos won with their defense again, I believe they have the best defense in the NFL.

The Green Bay Packers, Pittsburgh Steelers and Atlanta Falcons round out the top five. The Detroit Lions are just right outside the top five won a defensive battle against their division rival the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings lose Rookie star Running Back, Dalvin Cook for the season due to a torn ACL tear.

The defending Super-Bowl champions, the New England Patriots lost their second game at home and have the worst defense in the NFL. They're given 456.8 yards per game which is dead last in the NFL. However, they're still remind a top 10 team coming in at number 8. Right behind them are the Philadelphia Eagles who got their third win of the season against the Chargers. The Carolina Panthers who beat the Patriots make it in the top ten.

The New Orleans Saints go into the bye week at 2-2 after starting the season 0-2. The Buffalo Bills and Los Angeles Rams get big wins on the road against two of the best teams from last season. The Bills beating the Falcons and the Rams beating the Cowboys.

The Baltimore Ravens have loss two straight games after starting 2-0 and the New York Jets have won two straight after starting 0-2.

The Los Angeles Chargers (27), New York Giants (29), San Francisco 49ers (31) and Cleveland Browns (32) remind winless at 0-4. Either the Giants are Chargers will get their first win of the season as they face off in week 5 in North Jersey.
