Week 3 Power Rankings
32. New York Jets (0-2)
Last Week: 29
Character: Uncle Rico, Napoleon Dynamite
Yeah I am sure Uncle Rico can throw a football over them mountains just as I am sure Adam Gase is capable of coaching a winning football team.
31. Detroit Lions (0-2)
Last Week: 32
Character: Apollo Creed, Rocky IV
You can pretty much expect the Matt Patricia era to die this season.
30. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2)
Last Week: 30
Character: Shane Falco, The Replacements
Win or lose, they have been fun to watch. Plus Joe Burrow is just as lovable as the great Shane Falco.
29. Philadelphia Eagles (0-2)
Last Week: 16
Character: Johnny (Randy Quaid), Major League II
Because I am pretty sure the Philly fans are ready to turn Lincoln Financial into a parking lot right about now.
28. Houston Texans (0-2)
Last Week: 25
Character: Ray Budds, Remember The Titans
You remember Ray? The guy who was kicked off the team for not blocking. Cue the Texans offensive line for 2020. Bless Deshaun Watson’s heart for trying.
27. Cleveland Browns (1-1)
Last Week: 31
Character: Jimmy The King, Ready to Rumble
I am rooting hard for them because of Baker Mayfield just as us wrestling fans cheered for The King. Will they ever be able to achieve glory or does it ultimately end in failure?
26. Carolina Panthers (0-2)
Last Week: 26
Character: Gary Gaines, Friday Night Lights
They just lost their Boobie Miles for a few weeks in CMC. Can Matt Rhule figure it out in the meantime?
25. Minnesota Vikings (0-2)
Last Week: 15
Character: Allen Bosley, Remember the Titans
Total liability defensively.
24. Washington Football Team (1-1)
Last Week: 27
Character: District 5 Hockey, The Mighty Ducks
They both share God awful names. Nothing else matters.
23. Miami Dolphins (0-2)
Last Week: 28
Character: Danny O’Shea, Little Giants
Much like Danny (Rick Moranis), Brian Flores is a coach that is easy to love. He overperformed in 2019 with his roster. So far this year, the Dolphins have been competitive in both losses. Don’t take them lightly. There’s always ONE TIME!
22. Atlanta Falcons (0-2)
Last Week: 24
Character: Monstars, Space Jam
Loads of talent, yet they blow large leads better than anyone.
21. New York Giants (0-2)
Last Week: 23
Character: Boobie Miles, Friday Night Lights
Someone compared Saquon Barkley’s running style Bo Jackson to me recently. It stuck the landing because he does just run different. Everything about him is special. He battled a handful of injuries last year and now he is gone for the season with an ACL tear.
20. Chicago Bears (2-0)
Last Week: 20
Character: Richmond High School, Coach Carter
It hasn’t been pretty thus far. But, they’re getting the job done in the win column.
19. Los Angeles Chargers (1-1)
Last Week: 21
Character: Phil Brickma, Rookie of the Year
When you have team doctors puncturing the lungs of your starting QB, that’s not good. What’s next? Innovations like hot ice?
18. Denver Broncos (0-2)
Last Week: 18
Character: Rudy, Rudy
Two close losses to two quality teams. I still think they could still be a surprise team in 2020.
17. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1)
Last Week: 22
Character: Calvin Cambridge, Like Mike
This was supposed to be a tank year, but Gardner Minshew’s mustache said otherwise.
16. Las Vegas Raiders (2-0)
Last Week: 19
Character: Herman Boone, Remember the Titans
The Raiders are sitting pretty at 2-0 under Jon Gruden. While many weren’t buying into TC Williams this early, I am not buying into the Raiders just yet. I love me some Gruden as well as Boone though.
15. Dallas Cowboys (1-1)
Last Week: 10
Character: Cowboys, Little Giants
Much like the movie, you are much better on paper than you have shown two games into the season thus far.
14. Indianapolis Colts (1-1)
Last Week: 14
Character: Scott Howard, Teen Wolf
There is more to the Colts than meets the eye. I believe we saw a taste of that in the week 2 thrashing of the Vikings.
13. Los Angeles Rams (2-0)
Last Week: 17
Character: Sonny Weaver, Draft Day
You have managed to fuck up your future. Yet, here you are staying alive. Maybe you have a miracle in you after all.
12. Tennessee Titans (2-0)
Last Week: 12
Character: Jack Parkman, Major League II
Real simple thought process on the Titans. Don’t stand on the track when the train’s coming through. The train is Derrick Henry.
11. Arizona Cardinals (2-0)
Last Week: 13
Character: Billy Hoyle, White Men Can’t Jump
Hoyle doesn’t technically steal from people. Just like the Cardinals technically didn’t steal DeAndre Hopkins. Both just found gullible people to hustle. We still view it as someone really kicking themselves in the ass for letting it happen.
10. New England Patriots (1-1)
Last Week: 11
Character: Henry Rowengartner, Rookie of the Year
Cam Newton is having quite the resurgence and it is awesome to watch. I love me some Super Cam. Much like Henry, if that magic burns out, they are as good as done.
9. Buffalo Bills (2-0)
Last Week: 9
Character: Happy Gilmore, Happy Gilmore
It isn’t the most orthodox brand of football thanks to Josh Allen, but they are damn fun to watch.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-1)
Last Week: 8
Character: Johnny Lawrence, The Karate Kid
Yes. Tom Brady is older and has seen younger days. But he is still the best quarterback of all time no matter what happens in 2020. Nothing will change that. Let the hate continue to flow through your veins as he is a misunderstood villain.
7. New Orleans Saints (1-1)
Last Week: 2
Character: Nate Scarborough, The Longest Yard
Much like Nate, Brees looks old and decrepit.
6. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0)
Last Week: 7
Character: Bobby Boucher, The Waterboy
The defense knows how to get after the QB led by TJ Watt. There isn’t a team in the NFL who is better equipped to live in opponent’s backfields.
5. San Francisco 49ers (1-1)
Last Week: 6
Character: Earl Megget, The Longest Yard
When healthy, the Niners are a damn good football team. The offense is driven by their ability to run the football under Kyle Shanahan. They are unfortunately getting bit with the injury bug right now. This was an easy parallel to make.
4. Green Bay Packers (2-0)
Last Week: 5
Character: Charles Jefferson, Fast Times at Ridgemont High
When you piss off Charles Jefferson, he will punish you. When you piss off Aaron Rodgers, he will punish you.
3. Seattle Seahawks (2-0)
Last Week: 4
Character: Rocky Balboa, Rocky
You can underestimate Russell Wilson all you want. But when it is all said and done, history will remember him correctly.
2. Baltimore Ravens (2-0)
Last Week: 3
Character: Willie Beamen, Any Given Sunday
Lamar Jackson is a supreme athlete. He appears to be picking up where he left off during his MVP run in 2019. Put the ball in his hands and good things will happen.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0)
Last Week: 1
Character: Mighty Ducks
You love to root for them no matter what. Great coach in Andy Reid much like Bombay. Great leader and quarterback in Mahomes who is basically Charlie Conway and Adam Banks packed into one person. You have great enforcers on defense like Tyrann Mathieu and Frank Clark similar to the Bash Brothers (Fulton Reed and Dean Portman). You have a short crafty runner in Clyde Edwards-Helaire similar to WU WU WU KENNY WU! You have an absolute speedster in Tyreek Hill similar to Luis Mendoza.
