NFL Power Rankings

September 14, 2022

The first week of the 2022 NFL regular season is complete, meaning it is time to update our power rankings for the league. One week in and we already have a new team at the top. Last week, the Buffalo Bills were securely locked into the top spot, then backed it up with a 31-10 demolishing of the fourth-ranked team heading into the week. How did the Bills smack the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams in the mouth and fall?

Because the other top team in the AFC also came out firing and showed they were not done yet. The Kansas City Chiefs destroyed the Arizona Cardinals 44-21, and it was not even that close. The Bills and the Chiefs feel like they are a coin toss for the top spot right now, and this week, the Chiefs get the slight nod ahead of Buffalo.

The second week of power rankings always includes massive position changes as we all react to what we are seeing on the field. Maybe it is an overreaction to the most recent thing we have seen; maybe it was ranking a team too high or too low in the first place. Either way, we saw some massive leaps and colossal plummets this week. The Minnesota Vikings moved from 21 last week to six this week. In ranking them 21st last week, I wrote of the Vikings, “I feel like the Vikings should be higher on this list, but I do not know where I would put them. They feel like a team that could land just about anywhere in the top 20 and you could make an argument for them at that spot.” I was not wrong and now they move all the way into the top ten.

Going the other way are the Dallas Cowboys, moving from 13th last week to 29th this week. The Cowboys never looked in rhythm on Sunday night, and now not having Dak Prescott removes any confidence in the team’s ability to win. It is way too early in the season to think the Cowboys’ season is over, but there is no confidence in the team right now.

 

The Denver Broncos also see a tumble, falling from ninth to 19th. It is hard to figure out what the Broncos will be this year after the debacle they had on Monday Night Football. Maybe they need a couple of weeks to work out some of the kinks as Russell Wilson settles in as their quarterback, but they did not look like a team who is going to be a threat in a loaded AFC West in Week 1. And, they have to learn how and when to call timeouts. That was just a mess at the end of the game.

The Miami Dolphins are starting to move up and are just outside the top ten now. A win over the New England Patriots in Week 1 is a great way to start the year in South Florida. They were led by their defense as the offense continues to develop into the new system under Mike McDaniel and with the new players like Tyreek Hill, Cedrick Wilson, Jr., Chase Edmonds, and Raheem Mostert, but they came away with a solid win.

Falling into the final spot in the rankings are the New York Jets. While the expectations were not sky-high for the Jets this year, there were expectations that they would be a better team than they have been over the past several seasons. In Week 1, they looked like the same-old Jets.
