The NFL season kicks off within the month. Here are how the team’s stack up heading into the season with my NFL power rankings. I have the Detroit Lions has the highest ranked team that missed out on the playoffs last year. The Jahmyr Gibbs pick was scoffed at me the “experts”. But he looks like a potential Christian McCaffrey or Alvin Kamara the way he can be used in the passing game. Dan Campbell has turned the entire operation around in Detroit. And reports out of training camp are glowing about Jared Goff and his command of the offense. Staying in the state of Florida, I am really high on the Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins this season. Both are stacked rosters with young quarterbacks in their rookie contract window. The time to strike is now for the Fins and Jags.
The biggest move of the offseason was Aaron Rodgers leaving Green Bay for the New York Jets. Most talking heads have the Jets as a legitimate Super Bowl contender. I do not see it that way though. Rodgers will improve the offense from last year. But what’s that saying when you rolled out Zach Wilson, Joe Flacco, and Mike White? Rodgers was not his MVP self last year. If that was just a blip on the radar, then I expect the Jets to be the best version of themselves. But I am not buying into that yet. Anyway, here are the NFL Power Rankings heading into week 1 of the NFL season.
