NFL Power Rankings: Week 4 edition


The Giants grab the top spot this week after the Falcons' loss to the Patriots on Sunday. The Broncos finally crack the Top Tier, almost by default, and the Jets shoot into the top ten. Take a look at the full Power Rankings for this week.

TOP TIER
1. Giants (3-0) [2]
2. Colts (3-0) [3]
3. Ravens (3-0) [4]
4. Vikings (3-0) [5]
5. Saints (3-0) [6]
6. Jets (3-0) [11]
7. Patriots (2-1) [9]
8. Falcons (2-1) [1]
9. Eagles (2-1) [10]
10. Broncos (3-0) [20]
11. Cowboys (2-1) [13]
12. Bears (2-1) [14]
13. Chargers (2-1) [19]
14. Bengals (2-1) [23]
15. Packers (2-1) [24]

The Jets once again looked impressive and moved up five spots this week... The Cowboys bounced back with an ugly win over the hapless Panthers in their new mega stadium... The Bengals rocketed up the charts after a huge win against the defending champion Steelers.

SECOND TIER
16. Cardinals (1-2) [7]
17. Steelers (1-2) [8]
18. 49ers (2-1) [18]
19. Titans (0-3) [12]
20. Bills (1-2) [15]
21. Texans (1-2) [17]
22. Jaguars (1-2) [28]
23. Dolphins (0-3) [16]
24. Lions (1-2) [30]
25. Seahawks (1-2) [21]

The Cardinals and Steelers both dropped out of the Top Tier after disappointing performances this week... The 49ers hold steady at No. 18 after a heartbreaking loss to the Vikings... The Titans put on another horrible display, but if their wide receivers could catch that game could have ended differently... The Lions shoot up six spots after their first win in 19 tries.

THIRD TIER
26. Redskins (1-2) [22]
27. Panthers (0-3) [25]
28. Raiders (1-2) [26]
29. Chiefs (0-3) [31]
30. Rams (0-3) [32]
31. Buccaneers (0-3) [27]
32. Browns (0-3) [29]

The Redskins actually looked better this week than they did against the Rams but couldn't win against a team that was due for a victory. Either way, they drop into the Third Tier... Even though the Rams didn't win, they move up simply because they actually showed some signs of life this week.
