NFL Power Rankings Week 4: Denver Broncos remain No. 1


We are beginning to enter a new week of the 2013-14 NFL regular season and that means we are ready for the updated power rankings after three complete weeks. As expected, Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos continue to sit atop the league as the most dominant performers through the first three weeks of the season.

The top three teams from last week’s rankings remain the same, while the Chicago Bears, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins continue their climb up the power rankings. Unfortunately for the New York Giants, they have plummeted to No. 31 after an embarrassing performance in Week 3 against the Carolina Panthers.

    I’m ready to see our d handle Payton and his donkeys. It will be a few weeks but it will be worth the wait

      If you are talking about the Chargers they don’t have a “d” they have an if.

    I like the Chiefs, but I’m not sure they have the strength of schedule to be that high. They’ve looked impressive, but they’re higher than the Patriots (who have also been unimpressive), and they’re both above the Dolphins who have had a much tougher schedule than both. It kinda feels like everyone is waiting for one of the teams (dolphins/patriots) to lose before they really pick one. The patriots looked awful the first couple of weeks against bad teams and I feel thats being acknowledged by the Chiefs being higher. I think the Dolphins should be too.

    • Patrick Allen

      I am biased but I think the Chiefs’ win over Dallas was a really quality win. I think the Cowboys are pretty dang good and they curb-stomped the Rams last weekend. I am also impressed with what the KC defense did against the Eagles.

      I am one of the voters in these ranks. I actually had the Chiefs at 7or 8, I think. I am not sold on their offense. Definitely had the Bengals higher.

      • andrew

        I agree there as well. I think on this list, Tom Brady is worth a couple of s lots by himself, because they haven’t looked terribly good until

  • Bob

    Lessee, one poll has the Raiders ranked at 31 below 0 – 3 teams, another ranked at 23 and this one ranked at 27.

  • Herman Moore

    Bears at #4? Why, because they barely beat Minnesota? And pummeled a terrible Steelers squad?

  • Steve

    How are the 49ers ahead of the Colts? Didn’t they just get beat by them at home?

  • joshuagenes

    Seattle will crush them like they did in preseason.

    • DXW

      Preseason? Ha! You must be one of the new bandwagon jumping Seahawks fans since you obviously don’t understand what preseason is or how those games are played.

      If Seattle can maintain their pace through an entire season, not to mention play well on the road against good teams (which is yet to be seen), they aren’t playing the SB in Seattle, and that’s unfortunate because away from that eye-sore of a stadium, Seattle is nothing special.

  • refuse2lose

    Give Carolina a couple more weeks and they will crack the top 10…

  • Silas B. Hayes

    I’m a die-hard KC fan, but this ranking is bold. I don’t think they will be truly tested ’til after they beat Denver in game 9 or 11, preferably both. And the only way that will happen is if defense can get Manning to graze grass like a true donkey. Through thick and thin, I love my boys, but their schedule this year is cushier than Upton’s chest.

    I love Power Rankings, but they are always biased. I think they should be mathematically done. I figured out a way to make the power rankings unbiased and created using a formula:
