Three weeks into the 2020 NFL regular season, Marc Lillibridge gives us his weekly regular season power rankings. Where does your team rank?

  1. New York Jets (Last week: 32)

Quarterback Sam Darnold looks scared and the entire team is playing like they have somewhere else to be. Head coach Adam Gase may not make it out of October with his gig. The season is likely over for the Jets.

  1. New York Giants (Last week: 31)

At this rate, the NFL needs to move the 2021 Draft back to New York since the first and second overall picks will be going to teams there. The Giants have no marquee names playing right now.

  1. Atlanta Falcons (Last week: 23)

There is too much offensive firepower on this team to be 0-3. Coaching, or lack thereof, is the reason the team is in this hole.

  1. Denver Broncos (Last week: 25)

The defense keeps losing star players and with quarterback Drew Lock out, Jeff Driskel is not the answer.

  1. Philadelphia Eagles (Last week: 26)

The Eagles are playing like one of the worst teams in the NFL. Their team seems so disjointed and seems to regress each week.

  1. Cincinnati Bengals (Last week: 29)

The Bengals moved up two spots from a week ago thanks to a tie (and the fact there are so many teams playing bad football). But fans have a glimmer of hope in quarterback Joe Burrow. They need an offensive line to keep him healthy.

  1. Washington Football Team (Last week: 24)

Just when quarterback Dwayne Haskins looks as if he has turned the corner on his maturation, he makes a boneheaded play. The defense deserves better than this offense.

  1. Carolina Panthers (last week: 30)

A big win for the Panthers, without Christian McCaffrey, was exactly what the team needed. The offense is rounding into shape and the young defense looks to improve each week.

  1. Jacksonville Jaguars (Last week: 20)

Even with another excellent game from running back James Robinson, the lack of talent on the overall roster is starting to show. The passing game was anemic and the defense looked pedestrian.

  1. Detroit Lions (Last week: 28)

Oh, what a week makes in the NFL. Head coach Matt Patricia went from the hot seat to, at least for a week, the driver’s seat by getting a major win versus the Cardinals.

  1. Minnesota Vikings (Last week: 22)

The team is 0-3 and trending in the wrong direction. What was supposed to be the team’s calling card, the defense, was embarrassed on Sunday.

  1. Houston Texans (Last week: 21)

One of the toughest three-game starts to any season has the Texans at 0-3. If they lose to the Vikings in Week 4, the season is over for Watson and company.

  1. Miami Dolphins (Last week: 27)

Though he didn’t play very good week one, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick looked electric in Week three and outdueled his facial hair rival, Gardner Minshew. The Dolphins are a tough out the rest of the season if Fitzmagic is up to these tricks.

  1. Los Angeles Chargers (Last week: 19)

The Chargers are either about to ascend as a team or take a bigtime nosedive. The offense needs to start playing to rookie quarterback Justin Herbert’s strengths and embrace him as a future.

  1. Dallas Cowboys (Last week: 13)

The secondary is not good, and a team built around the running game has become a pass-happy team. The team lacks the killer instinct to challenge for a championship.

  1. Las Vegas Raiders (Last week: 8)

The tumbler of the week, the Raiders, were exposed by better coaching and preparation. The talent is all there to compete in the AFC West but against a team, on paper, they should beat, the Raiders were not ready.

  1. Cleveland Browns (Last week: 18)

The offense is starting to click, and the young defense is starting to gel. How this team plays against the top competition will go a long way in determining if they can stay in the teens of the Brawl Network Power Rankings.

  1. Chicago Bears (Last week: 16)

One week after giving Mitchell Trubisky props here, he gets benched and the team still won. The Bears are the most unimaginable 3-0 team this season thanks to head coach Matt Nagy. He doesn’t seem to get rattled and his toughness permeates through this squad.

  1. Indianapolis Colts (Last week: 17)

Granted, they played the Jets, but the Colts offense was balanced, and the defense made huge plays. If Philip Rivers doesn’t try to do too much, this team could be a force come December.

  1. Arizona Cardinals (Last week: 6)

If you want to compete in the NFC West, you can not take an ‘L’ to the Lions. The team needs to learn how to win close games and until they can consistently do that, they will always be on the outside looking in.

  1. New Orleans Saints (Last week: 10)

Do not tell me quarterback Drew Brees is healthy. His arm looks tired. This is now Alvin Kamara’s team and the offense needs to run through the stud-back.

  1. Los Angeles Rams (Last week: 11)

The Rams looked lifeless to start the game versus the Bills but this high-powered offense exploded to almost make an epic comeback. The loss doesn’t hurt them here as bad due to the fact the Bills are for real and I am scared to move them lower because Aaron Donald reads this and I don’t want him tossing me like he does everyone else.

  1. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Last week: 14)

The entire offseason, all the talk was about Tom Brady and the offense. They are but a side note now to one of the most fun defenses to watch in the NFL. Edge rusher Shaq Barrett put on a show versus his old team.

  1. San Francisco 49ers (Last week: 12)

They beat the Giants but backup quarterback Nick Mullens looked like the real deal, without most of the normal offensive weapons. If the 49ers can get healthy, look for them to continue to stack together wins.

  1. New England Patriots (Last week: 15)

Bill Belichick is the greatest coach EVER! I know that sounds like hyperbole after week three but with all the losses on the offensive and defensive side of the football, this team looks like a well-oiled machine.

  1. Tennessee Titans (Last week: 7)

There is not one part of this TEAM that stands out but over the last three weeks, either the offense, the defense or in the case of week three, special teams, have been the deciding factor. Head coach Mike Vrabel has this team playing in unison and carrying each other.

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers (Last week: 9)

The Steelers were outplayed by the Texans in the first half. But the defense willed itself back into the game and the rushing attack took over. If Big Ben can play mistake-free football, the Steelers are again a threat in the AFC.

  1. Baltimore Ravens (Last week: 3)

The Chiefs have played a couple close games in the first two weeks, but they made the previous dominant looking Ravens, look slow and outmanned. The game was never close and has to sting the confidence of the Ravens.

  1. Buffalo Bills (Last week: 5)

The defense, normally the strength of the Bills, struggled versus the Rams, but young uarterback Josh Allen, tore up the defense and single-handedly won the game. The Bills are an ascending solid team.

  1. Seattle Seahawks (Last week: 4)

All the talk through week three has been about quarterback Russell Wilson and his MVP campaign. Watch Seattle play and you will see linebackers KJ Wright and Bobby Wagner playing like they did when the Seahawks were Super Bowl champs.

  1. Green Bay Packers (Last week: 2)

When does the Allen Lazard for MVP campaign start?

  1. Kansas City Chiefs (Last week: 1)

PATRICK Mahomes is just freaking awesome to watch and plays for an innovative coach who knows how to use his skills. The defense is improving too. The Chiefs’ run it back season has gone well so far.
