NFL Power Rankings: Where all 32 teams stand

I didn't think it was possible to be lower than a nameless football team, but the Jaguars keep selling and appear to be the favorites for Trevor Lawrence.


Ron Rivera brings respectability to a franchise with very little, but the hiring of Jason Wright as team president could be the game changer Washington needs... if Dan Snyder gets out of the way.


Adam Gase stuck with virtual meetings in training camp — the only team in the league to do so. Hey, at least he didn't try to have virtual practices.



The Panthers will be a fun offensive team to watch, but it's a full-scale rebuild on the defensive side of the football.


Daniel Jones could become a respectable starter, but the lack of pass rush prowess on defense will keep the Giants near the bottom of the league.


Let me know when Tua Tagovailoa takes over at quarterback and I'll move the Dolphins up. They're headed in a better direction.


The loss of Derwin James (knee) really stings for a team relying on its defense. There's just not enough firepower on offense.


The defense is slightly improved and Joe Burrow will keep the Bengals interesting. I expect big things from the rookie.


The Raiders scream "average" across the board, especially with Derek Carr at quarterback. There are some young pieces to like, but it would take a lot for it to all come together in their first year in Las Vegas.


The Rams were limited in what they could do in the offseason and they look worse on paper after missing the playoffs in 2019.


With Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins, the Cardinals are suddenly scary on offense, but the offensive and defensive lines will hold this team back.


Adrian Peterson is back in the NFC North and will test the Bears' run defense (minus Eddie Goldman) right away.


Deshaun Watson will have to carry the load more than he already has, but the fourth-year quarterback never seems fazed.


Kevin Stefanski should really help Baker Mayfield and the Browns have a really good offensive line. They'll be tough in 2020.


The Falcons seem poised for a bounce-back season, especially because they finished 2019 strong. A lot will depend on the offensive line coming together.


As long as Aaron Rodgers is the quarterback, the Packers will contend, but it's hard to see how this team got better.


I still like what the Broncos did on offense in the offseason, adding key pieces like Melvin Gordon and Jerry Jeudy, but Drew Lock remains a question mark.


September is here and it's starting to seem silly to doubt Bill Belichick. Reports on Cam Newton sound positive, but I remain skeptical.


The Vikings went from rebuilder to contender within the same offseason. Youth at cornerback will be a weakness, but the acquisition of Yannik Ngakoue helps the pass rush a lot.


The Bears have enough pieces to contend for an NFC North title, but this is a prove-it situation because the offense still has a lot of questions.


The offense figures to regress in 2020, but the Titans' defense should still be strong, especially after adding Jadeveon Clowney.


The Cowboys have a lot to like on paper and Dak Prescott is set up for a big season under the franchise tag. I'm interested to see how much Mike McCarthy has evolved as a coach after taking a year off.


Perhaps too much of the Bills optimism is based on Tom Brady leaving the division. Josh Allen is still Buffalo's quarterback after all.


The Colts have the best offensive line in the NFL, which is quite a turnaround from where they were a few years ago. Add Philip Rivers and DeForest Buckner, and this team should win the AFC South.


Injuries to Pro Bowl guard Brandon Brooks and left tackle Andre Dillard have made things tough on the offensive line, but having Jason Peters move back to left tackle certainly helps.


If the Steelers' outstanding defense can solve the Ravens' rushing attack, Pittsburgh could end up taking the the AFC North.


Depth may be an issue, but the defense gets a big boost with Jamal Adams, while Russell Wilson should have the offense humming.


The analytics and common sense all point to regression for a team that overachieved in 2019 and doesn't have an elite quarterback.


It all looks good on paper, but the Buccaneers will be one of the bigger boom-or-bust teams based on health. The guess here is that Tom Brady holds it all together.


In a pass-happy league, the Ravens will try to win with an outstanding rushing attack, great defense and good special teams. They did lose Earl Thomas though.


The Saints lost out on Jadeveon Clowney, but they still have the most complete roster in the NFC.


The defending champs have locked in most of their core and still have the best player in football. The Chiefs won't be slowing down in 2020.
