The Washington Football Team dropped their third straight game against the heavily-favored Green Bay Backs at Lambeau Field this Sunday.
Looking beyond this particular game, there were several nail-biters and thrillers that are bound to shake up the weekly NFL power rankings.
After all, now that we’re seven weeks into the season, the contenders and pretenders — and full-blown dregs — are starting to reveal themselves.
Following yet another thrilling week of football (Washington game aside) let’s dive into our first edition of NFL power rankings.
NFL power rankings: Where does Washington sit after Week 7?
32. Houston Texans
Not much of an explanation is needed here, folks. Per reports, the Texans are on the verge of trading Deshaun Watson amid his slew of sexual assault allegations. While that would rid a massive off-field distraction, Houston’s on-field product hasn’t been much better. This is one of the worst rosters in the NFL, and we’d be shocked if they finished the season with more than two wins.
31. New York Jets
The Jets are the youngest team in the league, and that’s been evident over their first six games. The defense is finally regressing to the mean after a hot start and the offense is led by a rookie QB in Zach Wilson who seems to make the hard plays look easy and the simple plays look impossible.
30. Detroit Lions
The Lions are the league’s last winless team, but they, including first-year head coach Dan Campbell, deserve better than their record. Campbell pulled out all the stops to try and get Jared Goff a revenge game win over the Rams, but Los Angeles’ offense proved to be too much for Detroit.
29. Miami Dolphins
Is Miami the NFL’s most disappointing team? Coming off a 10-win season last year, it looked as though the Dolphins, who added a ton of talent in the offseason, were poised to take the next step under Brian Flores’ tutelage. That’s been anything but the case. At least fans can cling to the fact that Deshaun Watson might be headed to South Beach, because Miami is going nowhere fast in 2021.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars
You think Jacksonville is having regrets about hiring Urban Meyer? There’s reason to be bullish on the Jaguars’ future — Trevor Lawrence has been excellent this month and James Robinson is one of the league’s underrated RBs — but there are burning questions at head coach and their defensive personnel is miles away from being competitive.
