The NFL is crazy, and we love it.
The Raiders might be good, a pair of undefeated teams lost their first games, a third had to score 51 points to avoid their first loss, and SLR’s NFL Power Rankings have a new No. 1 and big changes in the top 10.
With the NFL in the shape it’s in right now, Power Rankings are going to be as varied as they are interesting (or rage-inducing?). A majority of teams in the NFL right now are either 3-2 or 2-3. The top tier of teams is clear, and the bottom tier even more so.
The middle? It’s a big, jumbled mess, and I’m going to try to make some sense of it. Because the middle of the order is all smashed together in terms of both record and talent level, there are going to be some huge moves up and down the board, which will be denoted next to each team name.
Of course, those could easily be reversed next week. Parity in the NFL is a beautiful thing.
