NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Undefeated and winless teams see big changes

New, comments

The Phinsider Power Rankings are back for Week 3, with a few more large swings from teams up and down the board.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Phinsider Power Rankings return for Week 3 this morning. A week after seeing some major swings as the Phinsider group made their first rankings of the year, as compared to SB Nation's rankings from Week 1, the rankings still see some big changes on the board this week. This week, we again have teams taking double digit jumps and falls, as teams climb to 2-0 on the year, or drop to 0-2 after the second week of the season.

With the way Power Rankings typically work, the first two weeks of the year lead to wild swings, as teams start off hotter than expected, or teams expected to be good suddenly do not show up. Week 3 usually sees wins and losses having less of a week-to-week impact. We shall see if that holds true for us.

Without further ado, we bring you the Week 3 Power Rankings from The Phinsider group of Brian Naidus, jamesradio1979, Alex Parish, and me:
