The real Gruden Grinders? They’re in Washington, where Jay Gruden has built strength in the trenches—and quietly (no drama! no dysfunction!) taken the lead in the NFC East. Plus, the focused, selfless Rams, Adam Vinatieri’s long (looong) road to the scoring record, Philly’s ‘must-win’ win, a Seattle resurgence, trade news and much more.
After a week of (multiple) 50-point performances, weird losses and a bewildering coach firing, this week's power rankings have a new feel. While the Raptors remain on a torrid pace, we have a new team at the bottom of the league.
