2021 NFL Power Rankings: Week 3

The Denver Broncos are 2-0. How does this start to the season help them in the power rankings for Week 3?

What an interesting week in the NFL. The NFC separated itself a little bit on Sunday five teams remained unbeaten heading into Week 3, while only the Denver Broncos and Las Vegas Raiders in the AFC stand atop the unbeaten ranked in their conference.

I still think the Kansas City Chiefs are the team to beat and until Denver beats them head-to-head (something they have not done since 2015) I will be hard pressed to put Denver above them regardless of record. As for the Raiders, their reign at the top will be a long forgotten occurrence by seasons’ end.

I would almost put all of the teams between 7 and 19 in a very close packed group. Some of these teams will rise above, but its still too early to truly tell which teams will do that.
