NFL Power Rankings After Week 3

Sep 28, 2010 2:55 AM EST

For the 2010 season, our weekly team rankings will be based solely off our Trench Counter formula, which means a completely objective examination.

With three weeks of games in the books, teams have some outlier performances (both good and bad) that create some misleading rankings. The Chargers are clearly in dubious position at No. 3 considering they have a 1-2 record, but they fattened up against the Jaguars and controlled the line of scrimmage against the Chiefs and Seahawks in games they were destroyed on special teams.

For my money, no team has been better than the Steelers through the first three weeks and their three opponents have a combined 6-0 record in their games not against Pittsburgh.

1. Chicago Bears: 12.6 2. Pittsburgh Steelers: 11.2 3. San Diego Chargers: 10.8 4. Philadelphia Eagles: 7.0 5. Kansas City Chiefs: 5.6 6. Indianapolis Colts: 4.8 7. Atlanta Falcons: 4.5 8. Miami Dolphins: 4.3 9. New York Jets: 2.9 10. Cincinnati Bengals: 1.8 11. Oakland Raiders: 1.7 12. Denver Broncos: 1.4 13. Green Bay Packers: 1.2 14. Baltimore Ravens: 1.2 15. Tennessee Titans: -0.3 16. Seattle Seahawks: -0.4 17. New York Giants: -0.7 18. Houston Texans: -0.7 19. St. Louis Rams: -1.0 20. New Orleans Saints: -1.2 21. New England Patriots: -1.3 22. Dallas Cowboys: -2.1 23. Cleveland Browns: -2.1 24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: -2.5 25. Minnesota Vikings: -2.9 26. Washington Redskins: -2.9 27. Arizona Cardinals: -6.3 28. Carolina Panthers: -7.7 29. Detroit Lions: -7.9 30. San Francisco 49ers: -8.2 31. Buffalo Bills: -11.2 32. Jacksonville Jaguars: -11.5
