Arizona Cardinals: Week 4 Power Rankings

1 of 6

As the leagues starts to separate the contenders from the pretenders, some mystery remains

Who are several teams as we move into October? Are the Raiders, for real, going to beat their win total from last year? This is the second place team in the AFC West we’re talking about, only a game out of first place, but they haven’t faced any division foes as of yet.

Are the Colts as bad as they look? Are the Lions? Are the Bears (oh, my). There certainly is a lot to be said for the higher end of our rankings. Dominating wins get you to the top, New England, Arizona and Green Bay put on clinics over the weekend (and last night) and if they continue to take care of business, the top teams may already be established in each conference.

32. team. 57. What can you really say anymore. The Bears went from their worst home loss in the team’s history to getting shutout in Seattle. This is truly looking like a lost season already for the Bears.. (0-3). Previous: 32nd. Chicago Bears

Previous: 27th. Tampa Bay Buccaneers. 30. team. 48. The Bucs came off a win, much like the Jags, in surprising fashion, but couldn’t pull out two in a row. Inconsistency will be the downfall of the team and with two great teams in the division looking to mop up what’s left, there doesn’t appear to be any hope this year. Rebuilding continues.. (1-2)

52. The Jags didn’t put up much of a fight after coming off a great game last week. New England put up 50+ on the team that failed to do pretty much anything defensively against Tom Brady. That lone still has them in the division lead (tied with everyone else), but they won’t stay there for long.. (1-2). Previous: 29th. Jacksonville Jaguars. 29. team

(1-2). Previous: 28th. Houston Texans. 28. team. 10. The Texans needed a win to avoid going 0-3 and pretty much ruling out the playoffs. They got one, and it sure wasn’t pretty, and it sure was close. They’ll enjoy the division lead three weeks into the season with the rest of their terrible division.
