Seattle Sports Hell 2013 NFL Power Rankings – Week 4

The more I watch some of these other teams, the more it is painfully obvious that there are two teams in this year’s NFL that are above and beyond every other team.  So, until further notice, there are going to be two sets of power rankings.


  1. Seattle Seahawks (4-0) – It’s two days later and I’m still shaking with excitement.
  2. Denver Broncos (4-0) – This offense + Seattle’s defense = Super Bowl Apocalypse.

The Rest:

  1. Kansas City Chiefs (4-0) – This team is GOOD.  I can’t wait for the first KC/Denver matchup this year.
  2. Green Bay Packers (1-2) – You could argue that the Lions helped the Pack by beating the Bears, but I’m not sure they need the help.  I still think this is the best team in the NFC North, which it turns out is a pretty decent division.
  3. New England Patriots (4-0) – Considering they’re undefeated with all the injuries they’ve had to overcome, I might consider being really worried about this team.  But, then I remember those injured guys (Amendola, Gronk, etc.) will just get injured again anyway and I relax.
  4. San Francisco 49ers (2-2) – They needed that one.  Had they gone 1-3, with two losses in the division, I think you could have legitimately written this team off.
  5. Houston Texans (2-2) – Shoot, I think I’ve been under-rating the Hell out of this team.  That might be the toughest game the Seahawks play all year.
  6. New Orleans Saints (4-0) – Good team, but just wait until they start facing good defenses.
  7. Atlanta Falcons (1-3) – Down 7, with three time outs to go, I would have kicked deep.  Probably wouldn’t have mattered, but when you fail on the onside kick, you give New England a better chance to go up by two scores.  Had they nailed that touchdown on the previous drive, I would’ve onside kicked it.  Either way, a disappointing start to the Falcons’ season and a great help to the Seattle Seahawks.
  8. Detroit Lions (3-1) – 2-0 in the North division, 3-1 against the NFC.  The Lions’ playoff chances are STRONG right now.
  9. Indianapolis Colts (3-1) – Dominant win in Jacksonville.  These Colts are growing on me.
  10. Chicago Bears (3-1) – That defense is over-rated as SHIT when they’re not scoring touchdowns.
  11. Miami Dolphins (3-1) – Mike Wallace is really a suck-ass so-called superstar.  The Dolphins will rue the day they gave him a max pay-day.
  12. Cincinnati Bengals (2-2) – I’m sorry, but you lost to the Browns.  No top 10 team of MINE is going to lose to the Browns!
  13. Carolina Panthers (1-2) – It’s early yet, but they’re in a nice little hole to the Saints.  Fortunately for the Panthers, the Falcons are ripe for the picking.
  14. Baltimore Ravens (2-2) – Not going back to the playoffs.  You heard it here … many times.
  15. San Diego Chargers (2-2) – Their game featured two of the most frustrating teams with two of the most frustrating QBs.  On this day, Rivers bested Romo.
  16. Dallas Cowboys (2-2) – Why do they keep throwing on the goalline?  Demarco Murray needs some TD love!
  17. Cleveland Browns (2-2) – HOYER!!!  Is there any way we can donate “The Magic Man” nickname to this guy?  These Browns have no business getting to 2 wins this year!
  18. Tennessee Titans (3-1) – I’m impressed!  But losing Locker in this game to injury isn’t going to work.  The rest of this team seems to be up to the task, but it still doesn’t mean I’m going to put them in my top half.  Beat a legitimately good team without your best quarterback, then we’ll talk.
  19. New York Jets (2-2) – These aren’t your older brother’s Jets!  I actually found myself flipping over to their game on Sunday!  Of course, that was only because I take so much glee in watching the Jets lose football games.
  20. Buffalo Bills (2-2) – Exciting times to be a Bills fan.  When was the last time you could say that?
  21. Philadelphia Eagles (1-3) – Remember how everyone was sucking Chip Kelly’s dick after that first game when they dominated Washington?  Pretty tough to run an up-tempo, lots-of-plays offense when your quarterback and the players around him (save McCoy) are just the worst.
  22. Minnesota Vikings (1-3) – Whoop-dee-doo, they beat up on the Pittsburgh Steelers, BFD.
  23. St. Louis Rams (1-3) – I tweeted this during their game, but the Rams will end up paying Sam Bradford over $78 million if he stays on his current deal through 2015.  And they’re thinking of working out an extension?  Yes!  As a Seahawks fan, I say, “Please do!”
  24. Arizona Cardinals (2-2) – Shouldn’t have required 13 fourth quarter points to win that game.  You fall in the rankings accordingly.
  25. Washington Redskins (1-3) – Lotta injuries are only going to make a bad team worse.  Good time for a BYE week, I guess.
  26. Oakland Raiders (1-3) – I don’t know what to tell you.  This isn’t a good team and won’t be a good team for quite a while.
  27. New York Giants (0-4) – I can’t believe how bad this team is.
  28. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-4) – I REALLY can’t believe how bad THIS team is.
  29. Pittsburgh Steelers (0-4) – Words can’t explain how much I can’t believe how bad this team is.
  30. Jacksonville Jaguars (0-4) – You know what?  I can believe how bad this team is.  I absolutely can.
