NFL Top-5 Power Rankings | Week 4

NFL top-5 power rankings of Week 4.

In a chaotic NFL weekend, two teams of Week 4's top teams suffered their first losses, and five previously winless teams celebrated their first victories.

1. Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles have looked dominant throughout the first two weeks and week 3 with a 24-8 against the Washington Commanders. Jalen Hurts put on another show with 340 yards passing and three touchdowns as he cemented himself in early conversations for MVP. 

The defense has also been on a tear with nine sacks against the Commanders. Philadelphia looks scary this season and may be the team to beat.

2. Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins make their first appearance in the top 5 this season after defeating the Buffalo Bills 21-19. First-year head coach Mike McDaniel has the Dolphins starting hot as one of the only two remaining undefeated teams. Tua Tagovailoa has been impressive during the first three weeks but only managed 198 passing yards against the Bills. 

Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle have been electric on offense, and Miami looks to keep riding high. All eyes will be on Tua after sustaining head and neck injuries on Thursday night.

3. Buffalo Bills

The Buffalo Bills had a disappointing loss against the Miami Dolphins but are still one of the best teams in the NFL. Josh Allen was the focal point of the Bills as he attempted a total of 63 passes and ended the game with 400 yards passing and two touchdowns. 

Buffalo mishandled the final drive and field goal attempt in the loss.

The Packers usually find their way into the top 5 sooner or later after a 14-12 win over the Tampa Bay Bucs. 

The Packers rely more on Aaron Rodgers since Davante Adams left in the offseason. Rodgers has managed to lead the team to a 2-1 record to start the season.

5. Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs had a shocking 20-17 loss against the Indianapolis Colts and are 2-1 near the top of the AFC. Patrick Mahomes and the offense struggled much of the game, which could be a symptom of losing Tyreek Hill as an explosive option. 

The Chiefs had a tough outing last week, but it is still difficult to bet against them going forward.

16. New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints had another disappointing game with a demoralizing 22-14 loss against the Carolina Panthers. The offense struggled again. Jameis Winston had two interceptions, and Alvin Kamara had a rare fumble resulting in a touchdown for Carolina. 

The defense also had rare lapses by allowing a few big plays. New Orleans needs to address a few areas before considering a playoff run.
