The MMQB Power Rankings Poll

Introducing the Power Poll, as The MMQB staff ranks the 32 NFL teams from first to worst

We here at The MMQB are introducing a new approach to power rankings. Rather than relying on one mind to determine the 1 to 32 ranking, every week we will conduct a staff vote among all MMQB/Sports Illustrated NFL staffers for the most definitive ranking of the NFL teams (aside from maybe win-loss records), going by the classic Peter King “if they met on a neutral field in Des Moines...” scale.

So with that, we present the best 32 football teams in the world. As for how the initial vote went: No surprises at the top. And the Jets did make the cut, edging out the Calgary Stampeders.

This week’s voters:

Ben Baskin, NFL Reporter
