NFL 2020: Week 12 Picks

Every team has played at least ten games now, and six more weeks will determine the 2020-21 NFL playoff field. Week 12 has no shortage of games that will affect playoff races immensely. First and foremost, you have two 3-7 teams duking it out on Thanksgiving. Snooze and skip, right? Well the winner of the late afternoon matchup between the […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 11 Power Rankings

Week 11 had no shortage of Power Ranking-altering results. The top three teams in the NFL remained unchanged, but after that, chaos ensued in the rest of the Top Ten. The Los Angeles Rams probably had the biggest win of the week, downing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday Night Football. Both teams look playoff-bound, and the game’s outcome said […]

NFL 2020: Week 11 Picks

There’s no shortage of important matchups in Week 11 as the NFL season continues in its second half. On Thursday night, the Arizona Cardinals and Seattle Seahawks clash with identical 6-3 records. A second victory over Seattle would give Kyler Murray and the Cardinals control of the NFC West: but not if Russell Wilson has anything to say about it. […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 10 Power Rankings

Week 10 had no shortage of upsets, shifts in the standings, and tight fourth quarter finishes. While the top two teams in my rankings haven’t budged, there is disorder and mayhem after that. I may be exaggerating a little, with few teams rising or falling more than three spots, but Week 10 taught us anyone’s beatable in the NFL. After […]

NFL 2020: Half Season MVP Watch

Nine weeks through the 2020-21 NFL season, there are some clear front-runners for the league’s Most Valuable Player award. But the 2020 NFL MVP race is far from over, with three new players in the Top Ten and some movement of existing players since my quarter season MVP Watch. If you’re reading this after Week 10, the race may have […]

NFL 2020: Week 10 Picks

A jam-packed Week 9 lived up to the hype and brought some interesting results, and the intriguing matchups keep on coming in Week 10. The theme this week seems to be teams looking to create some distance in their division leads versus teams eager to get in to the race. The Tennessee Titans lead the AFC South, but the Indianapolis […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 9 Power Rankings

As the season passes it’s halfway point, singular wins and losses do less to move the needle on a team’s Power Rankings. While there was no shortage of interesting results in Week 9, these Power Rankings are a testament to that mantra. The biggest winner of the week rose just four spots, while the biggest losers fell just three spots. […]

NFL 2020: Week 9 Picks

Week 9 of the 2020-21 NFL season brings us some key matchups, some pitting good teams from opposite conferences against each other, and others unfolding the next chapter in key divisional races. Thursday Night Football kicks off with a rematch of 2019’s NFC Championship, though with Jimmy Garroppolo on the sidelines, it’s hard to see the San Francisco 49ers blowing […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 8 Power Rankings

Every week I think the Top Ten teams in my NFL Power Rankings will solidify their position, but every week some wacky results throw a wrench in that plan. The undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers downing the Baltimore Ravens by four points wasn’t the biggest upset, but it was a monumental win for Pittsburgh moving forward. Was it enough to earn the […]

NFL 2020: Week 8 Picks

Week 8 is one of the unofficial halfway marks of the NFL season, since you can’t cut 17 weeks perfectly in half. The league is starting to take shape, and games are beginning to hold more meaning. For example, the marquee matchup of the week will be the 6-0 Pittsburgh Steelers taking on the 5-1 Baltimore Ravens. Should Pittsburgh prosper, […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 7 Power Rankings

As I said last week, my NFL Power Rankings should become less volatile as the season wears on. One big win or one unfortunate loss carries less weight as the sample size of the season increases. Going from 10-1 to 10-2 is hardly as significant as going from 2-1 to 2-2, for example. But just like after Week 6, some […]

NFL 2020: Week 7 Picks

Week 7 of the NFL brings us some key matchups across the league. The marquee matchup of the week is the Pittsburgh Steelers and Tennessee Titans, both 5-0, squaring off on Sunday afternoon. The meeting of the 4-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers and 3-2 Las Vegas Raiders should be a good one, as well as Jimmy Garroppolo and the 3-3 San […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 6 Power Rankings

While I considered the outcomes of Week 5 to be pretty tame and have little effect on the Power Rankings, the same cannot be said about Week 6. Shake-ups at the top, near the bottom, and in the middle of this week’s rankings are a result of some interesting games that took place in Week 6. I labeled the juicy […]

NFL 2020: Week 6 Picks

Four undefeated teams remain, and both conferences are wide-open with no clear favorites yet. Week 6 will clear the air on how some teams stack up in the eventual NFL playoff race. In the NFC, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady are set to duel as the 4-0 Green Bay Packers take on the 3-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. In another NFC […]

NFL 2020: Post-Week 5 Power Rankings

Week 5 saw two unbeaten teams, the previously 4-0 Kansas City Chiefs and 4-0 Buffalo Bills, fall at the hands of the Las Vegas Raiders and Tennessee Titans. The Top 10 of this week’s Power Rankings had a number of shake-ups as a result, including a new team at the top. The 5-0 Seattle Seahawks, 4-0 Green Bay Packers, 4-0 […]
