Every week during the NFL season, we’ll be taking a look at where all 32 teams stand. Here’s our latest installment of the official 2017 NFL power rankings. Who’s up? Who’s down? Let us know what you think in the comments!
Who Are the Top 3 Teams in the NFL Right Now According to Power Rankings?
The top 3 teams in the NFL right now according to power rankings are the New England Patriots, the Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Minnesota Vikings. The Patriots are currently on top of the rankings with a record of 10-2. They have shown they are able to win against tough competition, with recent victories against the Buffalo Bills and the Miami Dolphins. The Steelers are close behind them with a 9-3 record. They have an explosive offense led by quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, and their defense is also one of the best in the league. The Vikings round out the top 3 with an 8-4 record. They have a strong defense led by linebacker Anthony Barr, and their offensive weapons include wide receiver Stefon Diggs and running back Dalvin Cook. These are the top 3 teams in the NFL right now according to power rankings.
What Makes These Teams So Strong and How Are They Expected to Do This Season?
How are NFL teams strong? It all starts with the quarterback. A good quarterback makes the players around him better and makes the plays when they need to be made. The second part of a good team is a good offensive line. They keep the quarterback from getting sacked and open up holes for the running back. The third part is a good defense. They stop the other team from scoring and getting first downs. Lastly, special teams are important too. They can score points and change the field position. All of these things are important for a football team to be successful. NFL teams that have all of these things are expected to do well this season.
Are There Any Teams That Are Underrated or Overrated According to the Current Power Rankings?
There are a few teams that are underrated or overrated according to the current power rankings. The Los Angeles Rams are currently ranked as the second best team in the NFL, but they may be overrated. They have only played one playoff team this season, and their offense has been inconsistent at times. The Rams may be able to make a run in the playoffs, but they are not the sure thing that many consider them to be. On the other hand, the Pittsburgh Steelers are ranked as the seventh best team, but they may be underrated. They have one of the best defenses in the league, and their offense is clicking on all cylinders right now. The Steelers could make a deep run in the playoffs if they can stay healthy.
How Will the Rest of the Nfl Season Play Out Based on These Rankings?
As we approach the halfway point of the NFL season, there have been some surprises in the standings. The Rams and Chiefs are both undefeated, while the Browns and Cardinals are still searching for their first win. However, there are a few trends that seem likely to continue for the rest of the season. The Patriots and Steelers are currently the top two teams in the AFC, and it is hard to imagine them not meeting in the conference championship game. In the NFC, the Rams and Saints look like the class of the conference, and it would be a surprise if they didn’t meet in the NFC Championship game. So while there are still plenty of unknowns, it seems likely that we will see some familiar faces in the playoffs this year.
It’s been an eventful few weeks in the NFL and as we head into week 10, the playoff picture is starting to come into focus. Our power rankings reflect that, with a few new teams making their way up (and a few old ones sliding down). Let’s take a look at where all 32 teams stand heading into week 10.
