  • Our panel of eight voters ranks all 32 teams
By The MMQB Staff
November 13, 2018

You will never guess who the No. 1 team in this latest edition of The MMQB NFL Power Rankings Poll is. A couple hints: They were the unanimous No. 1 last week. They won by 37 points on the road on Sunday. They neither lost one of their most valuable position players nor got de-pantsed as a touchdown favorite. Give up? The Saints! The answer is the Saints.

New Orleans is the NFL’s best team at the moment, and it’s not all that close. So let’s move on to a more interesting discussion: Who is the worst team in the NFL right now? You might reflexively say the Raiders based on the practice squad-caliber roster they’re rolling out on a weekly basis. But don’t forget about the Jets, who just got out-classed by the Matt Barkley-led Bills. The good news? This week’s voters were in full agreement about who’s No. 32. The unanimous answer? You’ll have to do the work to find out—and by “work,” I mean scroll on your computer or swipe on your phone until you reach the bottom of this column.
