NFL Betting Power Rankings – Sep 30th
Heading into Week 4, here are your NFL betting power rankings throughout the league.
#32 Chicago Bears (0-3)
Last week, they punted all ten times they had the ball. All ten.
#31 New Orleans Saints (0-3)
Luke McCown did a great job for the Saints, completing over 80 percent of his passes. But they still lost. Dallas could be their revival, though.
#30 Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2)
Jameis Winston already has two games with less than a 50 percent completion rate. He’s the only one to do that so far.
#29 Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
The Jaguars only have one turnover so far, but they did upset Miami.
#28 San Francisco 49ers (1-2)
Do you remember when the Niners trolled Minnesota in Week 1? I think I do, but I’m not sure.
#27 Washington Redskins (1-2)
Kirk Cousins now has a record of 3-9 as a starter. The Eagles’ secondary won’t give him much this week.
#26 Detroit Lions (0-3)
The Lions are averaging 45 rushing yards per game, and 2.65 yards per carry.
#25 Cleveland Browns (1-2)
Josh McCown has lost eight straight NFL starts. Why is he ahead of Johnny Manziel again?
#24 Miami Dolphins (1-2)
Ndamukong Who? The Dolphins aren’t pressuring quarterbacks and aren’t stopping the run.
#23 Tennessee Titans (1-2)
After that nifty opener, the Titans have dropped two straight.
#22 Baltimore Ravens (0-3)
Justin Forsett is only averaging 3.2 yards per carry. However, the Ravens get the Steelers and Michael Vick on Thursday.
#21 Houston Texans (1-2)
The Texans finally won after committing to the run, giving their backs 46 carries in Week 3.
#20 St. Louis Rams (1-2)
Todd Gurley’s NFL career so far consists of nine yards on six carries. The Rams have only rushed for a total of 111 yards in three games.
#19 San Diego Chargers (1-2)
Philip Rivers has thrown an interception in nine straight games now, the league’s longest active streak.
#18 Philadelphia Eagles (1-2)
DeMarco Murray is out with a hamstring injury. Were the Cowboys right not to open the vault for him?
#17 Oakland Raiders (2-1)
Amari Cooper has gained 100 receiving yards in Week 2 and Week 3. He’s the first since Randy Moss to do that for the Raiders in consecutive games.
#16 New York Giants (1-2)
Eli Manning has thrown the ball 108 times so far this season…with no picks.
#15 New York Jets (2-1)
Ryan Fitzpatrick had 58 passing attempts in Week 3. That’s the same number from Weeks 1 and 2…combined.
#14 Indianapolis Colts (1-2)
The Colts finally won, but they have had 10-point or more deficits going into the fourth quarter in all of their games so far.
#13 Minnesota Vikings (2-1)
Adrian Peterson is the NFL’s leading rusher. The last time the Vikes were 2-1? 2012, when Peterson was MVP.
#12 Kansas City Chiefs (1-2)
Alex Smith’s quarterback rating so far is 22.8. That only puts him ahead of Chicago backup Jimmy Clausen (8.9).
#11 Dallas Cowboys (2-1)
Don’t blame backup quarterback Brandon Weeden for that loss to Atlanta. He has completed 21 consecutive passes for the Cowboys.
#10 Buffalo Bills (2-1)
The Bills lead the NFL in rushing this year.
#9 Carolina Panthers (3-0)
All seven of the Panthers’ offensive touchdowns this year have come from Cam Newton, five through the air and two on the ground.
#8 Pittsburgh Steelers (2-1)
Michael Vick is now the starter thanks to Ben Roethlisberger’s MCL sprain. Can he find the magic he had with Atlanta?
#7 Seattle Seahawks (1-2)
Russell Wilson is throwing the ball 30 times a game. The Seahawks do better when they focus on the run.
#6 Atlanta Falcons (3-0)
The last two times the Falcons started 3-0, they ended up going all the way to the NFC Championship.
#5 Cincinnati Bengals (3-0)
Tyler Eifert, Gio Bernard and A.J. Green give Andy Dalton three primo targets in the Bengals passing game.
#4 Denver Broncos (3-0)
Week 3 is showing signs of changing the offense for Peyton Manning, with more snaps from the pistol and fewer from under center.
#3 Green Bay Packers (3-0)
Aaron Rodgers has ten touchdowns and no interceptions.
#2 Arizona Cardinals (3-0)
The Cards have 126 points through three games, good for fourth most in NFL history through three tilts.
#1 New England Patriots (3-0)
The Pats have averaged 34.2 points per game since the lost to Kansas City 41-14 on Monday Night Football last year, going 16-2, including postseason play.
