The Phinsider's first set of NFL Power Rankings for the 2014 season are here, reacting to everything that happened over the course of the first week of NFL games. These rankings are an average from among the Phinsider contributors, with Brian Naidus, jamesradio1979, and Alex Parish joining me in creating these.
Since we did not produce a set of pre-season power rankings, we used the rankings from SB Nation's NFL Preview for our "Last Week" rankings. As usual in the early weeks of an NFL season, teams make huge jumps or dramatic falls in this week's rankings,eventually settling into a norm after Week 3 or 4 of the season. This week, those huge jumps were bookended by the Miami Dolphins, who jump nearly half the league moving up 15 spots for their destruction of the New England Patriots, while the St. Louis Rams plummet 11 places after being dismantled by the Minnesota Vikings this week.
