2021 NFL Power Rankings: Week 4

There a couple of surprise teams rising into the Top 10 after three weeks. We’ll have to wait and see how they do as we head into October-November.

After three weeks to start the season, I honestly have no idea what to make of the NFL landscape right now. Record dictated much of these rankings, but I must admit that my gut tells me a lot of the teams in the Top 10 are going to end up frauds.

At least two of the AFC West teams are going to end up being frauds. For now, we’ll say they’ll be the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers. Another team in the Top 10 I think will end up bring frauds are the Carolina Panthers.

The Denver Broncos cracked the Top 5 this week and people will fade that and I get it, they have played a bunch of scrubs. If you dig a little deeper into those games you will find a Broncos team that is tied for the league lead in point differential at +50 through three games. Their defense held those scrubs to a mere 10 points a game, with 6 of those coming off a special teams error. The Broncos are a good football team and the real test for them begins in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Here are you full Week 4 power rankings and definitely subject to some major reordering over the next couple of weeks as we sort through the haves and have nots.
