NFL Betting Power Rankings – Sep 30th

Posted by Alex Murphy on September 30, 2015 in

Heading into Week 4, here are your NFL betting power rankings throughout the league.

chicago-bears#32 Chicago Bears (0-3)

Last week, they punted all ten times they had the ball. All ten.

new-orleans-saints#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.

tampa-bay-buccaneers#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.

jacksonville-jaguars#29 Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)

The Jaguars only have one turnover so far, but they did upset Miami.

san-francisco-49ers#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.

washington-redskins#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.

detroit-lions#26 Detroit Lions (0-3)

The Lions are averaging 45 rushing yards per game, and 2.65 yards per carry.

cleveland-browns#25 Cleveland Browns (1-2)

Josh McCown has lost eight straight NFL starts. Why is he ahead of Johnny Manziel again?

miami-dolphins#24 Miami Dolphins (1-2)

Ndamukong Who? The Dolphins aren’t pressuring quarterbacks and aren’t stopping the run.

tennessee-titans#23 Tennessee Titans (1-2)

After that nifty opener, the Titans have dropped two straight.

baltimore-ravens#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.

houston-texans#21 Houston Texans (1-2)

The Texans finally won after committing to the run, giving their backs 46 carries in Week 3.

st-louis-rams#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.

san-diego-chargers#19 San Diego Chargers (1-2)

Philip Rivers has thrown an interception in nine straight games now, the league’s longest active streak.

philadelphia-eagles#18 Philadelphia Eagles (1-2)

DeMarco Murray is out with a hamstring injury. Were the Cowboys right not to open the vault for him?

oakland-raiders#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.

new-york-giants#16 New York Giants (1-2)

Eli Manning has thrown the ball 108 times so far this season…with no picks.

new-york-jets#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.

indianapolis-colts#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.

minnesota-vikings#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.

kansas-city-chiefs#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).

dallas-cowboys#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.

buffalo-bills#10 Buffalo Bills (2-1)

The Bills lead the NFL in rushing this year.

carolina-panthers#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.

pittsburgh-steelers#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?

seattle-seahawks#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.

atlanta-falcons#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.

cincinnati-bengals#5 Cincinnati Bengals (3-0)

Tyler Eifert, Gio Bernard and A.J. Green give Andy Dalton three primo targets in the Bengals passing game.

denver-broncos#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.

green-bay-packers#3 Green Bay Packers (3-0)

Aaron Rodgers has ten touchdowns and no interceptions.

arizona-cardinals#2 Arizona Cardinals (3-0)

The Cards have 126 points through three games, good for fourth most in NFL history through three tilts.

new-england-patriots#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.
