PFT’s Week 4 2022 NFL power rankings

Mike Florio and Myles Simmons debate over Josh Allen's ability to close out games in clutch situations, and wonder what went wrong for the Bills in Week 3.

1. Dolphins (3-0; No. 6): To be the best, you’ve got to beat the best. And they did.

2. Eagles (3-0; No. 4): The only difference between the Dolphins and Eagles? The Dolphins have beaten two great teams.

3. Bills (2-1; No. 1): Ken Dorsey should switch to decaf after kickoff.

4. Packers (2-1; No. 7): The defense is playing better, which is good because the offense still needs work.

5. Rams (2-1; No. 5): The division isn’t as good as we thought it would be, which puts the Rams in position to seize it.

6. Chiefs (2-1; No. 2): It’s amazing that they made all those mistakes and still nearly won.

7. Buccaneers (2-1; No. 3): No tablets were harmed in the losing of this game.

8. Ravens (2-1; No. 9): Through three games, Lamar Jackson’s self-bet is paying off. He only has 48 games to go.

9. Cowboys (2-1; No. 10): Cooper Rush is performing just well enough to get Dak Prescott to return before he should.

10. Bengals (1-2; No. 11): The next AFC East team they face will likely give them a much stiffer test.

11. Jaguars (2-1; No. 18): Urban Meyer will inevitably find a way to try to take credit.

12. Titans (1-2; No. 13): The key to every game is to get the ball early, often, and repeatedly to Derrick Henry.

13. Browns (2-1; No. 22): They suffocated the Steelers, and they could keep winning plenty of games even without Deshaun Watson.

14. Broncos (2-1; No. 25): Russell Wilson’s meal took nearly as long to cook as Jan’s osso buco.

15. 49ers (1-2; No. 8): Maybe Brock Purdy should get a shot.

16. Vikings (2-1; No. 23): It was a Week Two performance but, somehow, a Week One result.

17. Giants (2-0; No. 21): If they had 22 Saquon Barkleys, they’d never lose a game.

18. Colts (1-1-1; No. 32): Does that win justify hanging a banner?

19. Chargers (1-2; No. 12): This team has way too many injuries for it to be bad luck.

20. Patriots (1-2; No. 14): Let Bailey zap.

21. Steelers (1-2; No. 15): If they don’t do something to pump up the offense, it’s going to be a very long year in Pittsburgh.

22. Bears (2-1; No. 28): Ugly wins count the same in the standing as the pretty ones.

23. Cardinals (1-2; No. 16): From 10-2 to 1-2 is a very rude awakening.

24. Jets (1-2; No. 19): They need Zach Wilson to play, and to play like the guy they drafted him to be.

25. Panthers (1-2; No. 31): Matt Rhule’s termination has been temporarily delayed.

26. Saints (1-2; No. 20): Sean Payton isn’t walking through that door.

27. Falcons (1-2; No. 29): They’re better than their record indicates, which puts them in good shape to contend for a playoff spot.

28. Seahawks (1-2; No. 24): The only thing this team has in common with the ’72 Dolphins is that they were both 1-0.

29. Lions (1-2; No. 26): Now that they’re learning how to start, the Lions have to learn how to finish.

30. Washington (1-2; No. 27): The Eagles continue to be thrilled that Carson Wentz has gone.

31. Raiders (0-3; No. 17): In a top-heavy AFC, they can’t get away with many more losses before the window closes on getting to the playoffs.

32. Texans (0-2-1; No. 30): The worst team in the worst division gets the worst spot, this week.
