For the second offseason in a row, a major trade has taken place and shaken up the NFC West power rankings.
With the trade that the L.A. Rams pulled off, obtaining Matt Stafford from the Detroit LIons has shaken up the future of all four teams within the division. The NFC West power rankings have changed completely in a late-night move. Apparently Sean McVay never liked Jared Goff anyway, and now he has his man as they fight to keep their title chances alive after losing Super Bowl LIII to the New England Patriots.
This also comes before this years Super Bowl has been played, and it’s not too often that you see such a big trade this early in the offseason. That’s why this move is so interesting, as the other teams haven’t made many moves outside of signing “futures” contracts.
With the Seattle Seahawks getting a new offensive coordinator, to the San Francisco 49ers getting all those players back from injuries, and the Arizona Cardinals having to take a big step forward, this division is as cloudy as ever in terms of who will the next NFC West crown.
We’ll start with these new NFC West power rankings with the lowest ranked team and go up from there. This will acknowledge injuries, but rank them as all teams will most likely be healthy upon the start of the season. Additionally, cap space will also factor in to the rankings that will most likely change these rankings in a month or so once free agency begins.
