2019 NFL Power Rankings

Where does your place going into the 2019 NFL season?

32. Miami Dolphins

The Dolphins have lost a lot of key players in recent months, and lack the talent that winning requires. The quarterback situation between Josh Rosen and Ryan Fitzpatrick could be interesting to watch though.

31. Cincinnati Bengals

After longtime coach Marvin Lewis’s departure, things have looked sour for the Bengals. Andy Dalton shows no signs of turning up his level from an “ok” QB to a “great” one, and the running game is not exceedingly impressive. Reminder: He has never won a playoff game. A.J. Green’s injury doesn’t help things either.

30. Oakland Raiders

The Raiders, though picking up Antonio Brown, have had a ton of problems involving him since his arrival. Now, he’s even threatening that he won’t play this season if the NFL does not allow him to wear his non-league-approved helmet. Drama.

29. Washington Redskins

Washington really needs a quarterback. Alex Smith is still out injured, and their draft pick Dwayne Haskins has a less-than-good debut with two interceptions. if that continues, Case Keenum might have to start. That would not be the worst, but definitely not the best either.

28. New York Giants

The Giants have a lot of potential for a number 28 spot, they just lack the playmaking ability outside of star running back Saquon Barkley. The rookie Daniel Jones also looks to be a better candidate for starting QB than Eli Manning, whose passing has deteriorated over the years.

27. Arizona Cardinals

Kyler Murray has the fate of the Cardinals this season. The rookie did pretty well during the first preseason game, but still has a lot to prove. The rookie coach also adds to the uncertainty.

26. Buffalo Bills

QB Josh Allen can be great at points, but wildly inaccurate at other times. Their defense is solid, and their offense isn’t horrible.

25. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Bruce Arians has to work on putting Jameis Winston back on track, and improve the running game. However, they’re extremely questionable on the defensive side of the ball.

24. Detroit Lions

Head Coach Matt Patricia has worked on adding veterans to the roster during the offseason, and due to injuries, depth could be a problem later on if more injuries occur.

23. San Francisco 49ers

Jimmy G is now healthy and could produce something major on the offensive side, while the defense looks to have improved slightly with Dee Ford and Nick Rosa.

22. New York Jets

New signings like Le’veon Bell and Sam Darnold could push the Jets into the hunt for a playoff spot, if things work out.

21. Denver Broncos

Their defense has improved, but adding Joe Flacco may not have been the best idea because of how old he is. We’ll have to see.

20. Jacksonville Jaguars

After releasing their former QB Blake Bottles, the new addition Nick Files seems to be an improvement.

19. Tennessee Titans

With a positive pre-season game and two decent quarterbacks (Marcus Mariota and Ryan Tannehill), things should end well for the Titans

18. Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson looks ready to take on the season.

17. Minnesota Vikings

Stefan Diggs, Adam Thielen, and a solid defense should keep the Vikings looking good, but Kirk Cousins at QB could decrease their chances to make the playoffs.

Cam Newton will hopefully put on a show this season

16. Carolina Panthers

The Panthers have a load of talent, and could be a lot better if Cam Newton returns to an MVP-like level. Christian McCaffery and a solid defense will also propel the Panthers

15. Pittsburgh Steelers

Losing Le’veon Bell and Antonio Brown certainly did not help the Steelers. It will be up to Juju Smith-Schuster and Big Ben to pick up the slack and keep the Steelers aimed for the playoffs.

14. Seattle Seahawks

Russell Wilson just signed a massive contract, so with young players ideally blooming, the horizon looks good in Seattle.

13. Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas roster features stars like Das Prescott, Demarcus Lawrence, Ezekiel Elliot, and Amari Cooper. If the ‘Boys can find a way to pay all of them, it could be a positive season.

12. Green Bay Packers

The Packers have not added many great players on offense with Aaron Rodgers, so all eyes will be on him to see if he can carry the team into the playoffs.

11. Los Angeles Chargers

Phillip Rivers, despite his age, continues to be one of the top QBs in the League. If he can keep it up, the Chargers could make it to the Super Bowl.

10. Houston Texans

After an 0-3 start to last season, the Texans won 9 straight to finish the season 11-5 and win the AFC South. Without the slow start that bit hurt them last year, Houston could be one of the most dominant teams in the league.

9. Cleveland Browns

The new-look Browns are shaping up to be good with Odell Beckham Jr. and Baker Mayfield leading the offense.

OBJ is hyped to be on the Browns https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/nfl/columnist/bell/2019/03/13/odell-beckham-jr-browns-trade/3148931002/

8. Chicago Bears

Just avoid the double-doink this year and it will work out. Ouch.

7. Atlanta Falcons

With Matt Ryan, anything could be possible, especially behind a great line and with a full arsenal of offensive weapons like Julio Jones.

6. Indianapolis Colts

If Andrew Luck can stay healthy, the Colts could be Super Bowl contenders.

5. Philadelphia Eagles

With Nick Foles gone, the pressure builds on the healthy Carson Wentz to produce a long drive into the playoffs, which he most likely will.

4. Kansas City Chiefs

The reigning MVP Patrick Mahomes has shown he isn’t a fluke. The chiefs this year might be able to snatch a ring.

3. Los Angeles Rams

With last season’s super bowl defeat, the Rams are coming back with revenge in their head.

2. New England Patriots

How can you ever count out Tom Brady and Bill Belechick?? You just can’t.

1.New Orleans Saints

If Drew Bree’s can perform for one for year like he did last year, there will be a high chance of the star-studded Saints making a deep playoff run.

That’s all, folks.
