2012 NFL Power Rankings Week 4: Looking at the Top Five Teams
Here’s a look at the top five teams from the 2012 NFL Power Rankings Week 4:
Nobody predicted them to lose last Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings, but this is still one of the top teams to beat in the NFC. With a steller defense, the 49ers should bounce back in Week 4 against the New York Jets.
Did anybody predict the Cardinals would be 3-0 to start off the 2012 season. After big wins over the New England Patriots and Philadelphia Eagles, it’s safe to say Arizona is the real deal and their defense has been phenomenal over the first three games.
Thanks to an impressive fourth quarter, and an emotional performance from Torrey Smith, the Ravens managed to pull off a win against the Patriots in Week 3 to improve to 2-1 on the season. With a matchup against the Cleveland Browns set for Thursday, there’s no reason why Baltimore shouldn’t be in the top five once again next week.
The argument can be made the Texans weren’t truly tested over the first two weeks, but they made a major statement in Week 3 with a big road win over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. This team looks like one of the best in the AFC, and should improve to 4-0 with a Week 4 matchup against one of their division rivals–the Tennessee Titans
Each week, the Falcons seem to impress even more and made a huge statement by pulling off a win on the road against the San Diego Chargers. Matt Ryan (eight touchdowns in three games) looks like an MVP candidate at this point and has Atlanta in the right position to be strong contenders in the NFC.
