Intertouchceptiondown. That is the only word I can think of after what transpired in Week 3 of the NFL seasons. I promise to not bring up the 'refeerees' in this one, beacause football is the ultimate team game, and despite what many say, one call impacts the outcome of the game but will never decide it.
The most surprising 0-3 team? The Saints. The most surprising 3-0 team? The Cardinals. Both officially deserve where they will end up in the Week 4 Power Rankings. This upcoming week of games will serve as a seperation week for some teams, Giants and Eagles, and an ultimate test for others, Jets and 49ers.
Without further adieu. Rank 'em time
- 1. Atlanta Falcons 3-0: The Falcons look like contenders. Yet again, they did the last two years at this time.
- 2. Houston Texans 3-0: Playing in the weakest division in the NFL could mean cruise control.
- 3. San Francisco 49ers 2-1: They will get back on track this weekend. I'm booking it.
- 4. New York Giants 2-1: No team looks like it can stop Eli. He is playing the best QB in the league.
- 5. Baltimore Ravens 2-1: The kick was good. So are the Ravens.
