Concluded the fourth date of action in the regular campaign of 2021, this is at the moment the list of the hierarchical order of the NFL, according to ESPN.com:
Note: The numbers in parentheses correspond to the position of each team in the previous week.
Wow that team Arizona it’s intimidating. They easily trampled the Rams in an undefeated duel and his offense makes long-yardage conversions look easy. Few or almost no one would bet that they were the last set with an immaculate brand. – LMV
The Bills They haven’t exactly hit their peak of the past year, but they’re not far off, with the addition of Emmanuel Sanders offering the potential to make a quantum leap from 2020. – RZ
After a terrible start to the season, the Packers They add three consecutive victories and again look like contenders in the National Conference, Aaron Rodgers regained his level and the running game has been a welcome revelation. – EC
It is true that they did not have to deal with Teddy Bridgewater in the second half of the game, but this team looks more and more like the version we expected of them and not the one they gave away when they opened the campaign in Las Vegas. – LMV
The Rams they lost badly, at home, to a divisional rival, but just getting to the point of the first quarter of the season, it’s time to learn from those kinds of setbacks and recalibrate the powerful offense. – RZ
Baker Mayfield appeared to take the day off against the Vikings and despite that the Browns They found a way to win with a defense that conceded very little and the two-headed monster they have in their running game with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, that’s not good news for the rest of their rivals. – EC
Putting aside everything that happened with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, the reality is that the current monarchs suffered more against a team that they had to overcome more easily, but the important thing was to get back on the road to victory. – LMV
Still not many believers in DallasBut the conviction with which Ezekiel Elliott ran, and the eventual return of Michael Gallup, coupled with the visible improvement in defense, opens the way to the NFC East title. – RZ
Be very careful with Chargers, his triumphs over Chiefs and Raiders They were by no means a coincidence and I wouldn’t be surprised if at the end of the year we’re talking about Justin Herbert as a solid MVP candidate. Finally, this team promises to be electric. – EC
Sam Darnold was constantly besieged (that’s where the mistakes came) and the defense in the second half no longer held on to suffer its first loss of the year. Now we have to turn the page before the Eagles at home. – LMV
It took just three consecutive games won at the start of the season for Vic Fangio to show what a bad loser he is, dramatically complaining that the Ravens they made an extra play without worrying about the safety of the players, when he stopped the clock three times in the final minutes to keep throwing in a game clearly out of reach of his own. – RZ
If the Raiders they do not fix their discipline problems soon, defeats will become common in Las Vegas, in the past they found a way to overcome the score against Ravens and DolphinsBut not all the time they will face teams that do not defend their advantages well. – EC
Kansas city returned to the path of triumph in a loose manner in Philadelphia, but the real challenge will come next Sunday at home when they receive the fiery Bills so that both teams can measure what their reality is in the still young 2021 campaign. – LMV
An improvement in the offensive line is the main pending task for Cincy, who could have found in CJ Uzomah the tight end that Tyler Kroft and Tyler Eifert never became. – RZ
The Seahawks They have never lost three games in a row since Russell Wilson is their quarterback, this says too much of a team that always finds ways to win, yet Thursday against the Rams We will see if its triumph over the 49ers was it a sign of that resilience or are they really back in the fight for their division .. – EC
After a promising start to the campaign, now they have two consecutive losses at home and the worst part for them is that they have to visit the only undefeated in the NFL: the Cardinals. – LMV
The bravery with which Taylor Heinicke plays has diverted attention into Washington of which must be the primary concern of this club: where is the defensive line of time that they boasted? – RZ
The defeat before Giants it must have been particularly painful for the Saints, was reunited with his fans at the Superdome after the ravages of Hurricane Ida in the area of New orleansInstead, it ended up being a disappointing performance and a show of what a defense shouldn’t do when faced with Saquon Barkley. – EC
As much as they tell me that they did not count on Julio Jones or AJ Brown for this commitment, it is difficult for me to justify the defeat against the Jets. – LMV
David Montgomery’s injury is a serious blow to the immediate future of the Bears and rookie Justin Fields, though on the other hand, Matt Nagy insists on threatening us to re-line Andy Dalton soon. – RZ
We can say that officially the Patriots They have found their quarterback of the future, although he can hardly fill the shoes that Tom Brady left empty. Mac Jones showed poise in front of the Buccaneers, managed to complete 19 consecutive passes and put New england in position to win the game with less than 2 minutes on the clock in constant rain, does that sound familiar to you? –EC
Their three losses have been by an accumulated 11 points, which shows that they are always in the fight and well their mark could be completely different, but that is what separates the contenders from the suitors. – LMV
Finally, a light appeared at the end of the tunnel for those who bet that Carson Wentz could consolidate under Frank Reich, in a week in which Indy received a hand from his three divisional rivals. – RZ
Will we be witnessing the first losing season in coach Mike Tomlin’s career? It is very probable. The Steelers They don’t seem to have enough offensive arguments to compete this year and the defense, which has historically been the franchise’s trademark, has doubled so much in just four weeks that it might not take long to break down. –EC
It is true that a couple of punishments prevented them from making the contest more even before the Chiefs, but it is inadmissible to think that all day they “forgot” about Tyreek Hill, who tore them to pieces when he wanted. – LMV
Kenny Golladay hasn’t been the addition New York fans were expecting, yet, but as Saquon Barkley gains confidence, the wide receiver will begin to see more defensive opportunities focused on the running back. – RZ
At the beginning of the season the Dolphins They seemed like a promising team, with a good defense and a solid attack, but that mirage is already behind them, Miami has had a clash with reality in which we now know that they cannot compete against good teams and that they will not always be able to beat bad teams. – EC
Atlanta had everything to put their mark at 2-2, but they let it Washington escape with the triumph before embarking on the journey to London, where they will face some Jets that they will arrive motivated. – LMV
Deserved first win for Robert Saleh, but not all week are they going to face an opponent who is willing to let their quarterback be beaten as much as the Titans with Ryan Tannehill this year; there is still a lot to improve. – RZ
The Texans they have lost their last two games by a combined score of 64-9. There’s just not much of a future for a team unable to score points and slow down opposing defenses. –EC
Jacksonville Week-by-week progress has been made, but that’s not enough for Urban Meyer and Trevor Lawrence to clinch their first NFL victory. Among the salvageable for the rookie quarterback was the fact that he no longer threw interceptions. – LMV
Facts speak louder than words, and while few beat noisy Dan Campbell in second place during the offseason, what he has accomplished at the helm of the Lions In his short time as a head coach, he is to bite his own knees. – RZ
They participate in the elaboration of the NFL Power Rankings for ESPN: Erick Cervantes (EC), Luis Miguel Vasavilbaso (LMV) and Rafael Zamorano (RZ).
