You've seen NFL power rankings before, but here at gatosclub we're also interested in the bottom of the barrel. As far as power rankings go, we're looking at what teams have done on the field, with a bit of an eye toward the future. We're also going to include our Sour Rankings, though, which will look at the teams that have had the worst performances and poor prospects.
So without further ado, here's a look at our NFL Power Rankings, featuring the best eight teams following Week 3. And the Sour Rankings, featuring the worst eight squads the league has to offer.
1. Philadelphia Eagles -- They're one of just two undefeated teams remaining and have the third best point differential in the league. Jalen Hurts has been a monster on offense, involving all of his main targets.
2. Miami Dolphins -- The Fins are looking great, too, though they have to make sure Tua Tagovailoa stays healthy. Their win over the Bills was a surprise but not an unbelievable one.
3. Buffalo Bills -- At this point, there's no shame in losing to the Dolphins, but if they played 10 times, I'd expect the Bills to win at least six of them.
4. Baltimore Ravens -- Lamar Jackson is playing on another planet in the best way for the Ravens. It's clear that their sole loss to the Dolphins is a quality one.
5. Kansas City Chiefs -- The loss to the Colts was a real surprising one, which is why they fell from No. 2 on this list. Hey, they still have Patrick Mahomes so they won't fall that far.
6. Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- They've yet to score more than 20 points in a game, but they've allowed 3, 10 and 14, respectively in the first three weeks. Unfortunately for them, they scored just 12 against the Packers for their first loss.
7. Los Angeles Rams -- After falling in the opener to the Bills by 21 points, they've won two straight and are still the defending Super Bowl champs.
8. Jacksonville Jaguars -- They're shooting up the rankings after falling to the Commanders in Week 1. Since then they've outscored their opponents 62-10 and are second in point differential at plus-46.
25. Tennessee Titans -- They held this spot last week as a winless team, but I'm not going to reward them for barely beating the team at the bottom of this list while having the worst point differential in the league at minus-33.
26. Carolina Panthers -- I said last week if they played well against the Saints, they'd jump out of the last spot. And they did it.
27. Arizona Cardinals -- They make an appearance in the Sour Rankings with two losses and the worst point differential in the NFC (minus-25).
28. Seattle Seahawks -- Another NFC West team shows up on the bad list, this one for having two straight losses and a minus-23 point differential.
29. New England Patriots -- Losing to the Ravens isn't shameful, but they'll have to face the next few opponents without Mac Jones, who suffered an ankle injury in the game's final moments.
30. New York Jets -- Their only win of the season is a one-point decision over the Browns and who knows how they'll respond once Zach Wilson returns.
31. Houston Texans -- They're winless, but hey, they haven't lost every game.
32. Las Vegas Raiders -- They've lost every game. And Davante Adams is starting to groan a bit.
