To all NFL fans waiting for the next season to open, here are our NFL power rankings starting from the top. We only have included six of the current teams playing in the league due to limited space.
Number One: Philadelphia Eagles
The number one team in our NFL power rankings is the Philadelphia Eagles. This team’s defensive strength was made stronger with the additions of Haloti Ngata and Michael Bennett, even if the team had a questionable cap situation while in the offseason. However, it is still doubtful if Bennett will ever get the chance to play since he seems to be interested in doing more charity works. But if he will really play with the team, the Eagles front end will be improved. Furthermore, although Mike Wallace isn’t really that great, he sure is a better team player than Torrey Smith who unfortunately dropped a number of passes every week.
Number Two: New Orleans Saints
Number two in our NFL power rankings is the New Orleans Saints. With the addition of Demario Davis, Patrick Robinson and Cameron Meredith, the Saints seem to have improved on both defensive and offensive ends during the offseason. This change in line-up makes them one of the favorites for the Super Bowl this season. The team surrendering its first-round pick during the 2019 NFL Draft seemed to be like a bad move just to improve its defensive end. But with or without a major contribution from Marcus Davenport, this team appears to be in the running for the Super Bowl.
Number Three: New England Patriots
The New England Patriots come in third according to WalterFootball’s NFL power rankings. Earlier during the offseason, nothing seemed to be going right for the Patriots. Free agency took four key players who included Malcolm Butler, Cameron Fleming, Nate Solder and Dion Lewis. To improve their defense, they traded for Jason McCourty and Danny Shelton and welcomed back Dont’a Hightower from injury. However, their offensive end has some problems unless Isaiah Wynn or Antonio Garcia steps up to provide Tom Brady the protection that he needs. Brady, already 41 years old is not getting younger. But if it’s true that Lewis is going to be replaced by rookie Sony Michel, a first-round pick, that’ll be good news for the team.
Number Four: Houston Texans
Fourth place in our rankings are the Houston Texans. Last year, they had a 4-12 record. This season, the team will welcome back a number of players from injury. These include Whitney Mercillus, J.J. Watt and Deshaun Watson. Their addition could bring the team back in contention for the Super Bowl. Furthermore, the team also added Aaron Colvin and Tyrann Mathieu, who are talented players. It appears to be a blessing when Watt injured his knee. That accident enabled him to get his back its needed rest which could result in him playing 100 percent in the upcoming season.
Number Five: Carolina Panthers
The Carolina Panthers are at fifth place in our NFL power rankings. This past season saw the team members suffering a lot of injuries. But the team still clocked an 11-5 record. With better luck this forthcoming season, they should be in contention for the Super Bowl. They performed a good job in addressing their receiving and secondary needs in the 2018 NFL Draft. Donte Jackson and D.J. More were chosen during the draft’s first two rounds. They are now poised to make it into the playoffs.
Number Six: Kansas City Chiefs
Bringing up the rear in our six NFL teams are the Kansas City Chiefs. This team got a major upgrade in the person of cornerback Kendall Fuller. They also improved their chances for the playoffs with their quarterbacks. Patrick Mahomes is a player with the potential of being a Super Bowl winner and a regular Pro Bowler. With Eric Berry coming back from injury, Anthony Hitchens and Xavier Williams fortifying the team’s interiors, the Chiefs has the potential of doing better in the upcoming season, even if Marcus Peters have transferred to another team.
