Week 4 2010 NFL Power Rankings (through 10/4/10)
1: Kansas City Chiefs (3-0 ATS, 3-0 SU) - Once the Chiefs lose their first game, the champagne bottles will start popping open for the 1972 Miami Dolphins. KC was on its bye week last week, and while that was taking place, both the Chicago Bears and Pittsburgh Steelers lost their first games of the season. Surprisingly, the Chiefs are now the last team standing either SU or ATS on the year. If they move to 4-0 SU and ATS this week, they'll most certainly have earned it, as going into Lucas Oil Field, especially after the Indianapolis Colts lost a game, is nowhere near fun.
2: Pittsburgh Steelers (3-1 ATS, 3-1 SU) - We refuse to punish the Steelers at this point. If you had told anyone clad in black and gold at the beginning of the year that the team would be 3-1 and tied for first place in the AFC Central through four games without QB Ben Roethlisberger in the lineup, they'd take it in a heartbeat. Big Ben will be back next week, but for the time being, Pittsburgh is going to enjoy its bye week by resting up and trying to get Roethlisberger ready for the duel with the Cleveland Browns in Week 6.
3: Houston Texans (3-1 ATS, 3-1 SU) - WR Andre Johnson didn't suit up last week against the Oakland Raiders, while RB Arian Foster was suspended for the majority of the first half. It didn't matter. Houston rumbled to a 31-24 victory that was significantly more lopsided than the final tally appeared. Now, the Texans have a glorious chance to move to 4-1 on the season and could remain a game clear of the rest of the AFC South with a 'W' over the New York Giants in Week 5. The schedule gets significantly tougher from here, so the Texans need to put as many wins in the bank as possible right now.
4: New York Jets (3-1 ATS, 3-1 SU) - The smack hath been laid down! New York absolutely rolled over the Buffalo Bills over the weekend and did so with a dominating running game. Both RB LaDainian Tomlinson and RB Shonn Greene rushed for at least 100 yards on the weekend, while the defense proved to be absolutely dominating. Are the Jets the class of the AFC? We might find out on Monday Night Football when the Minnesota Vikings come to town with an old, familiar face... that of QB Brett Favre.
5: Detroit Lions (3-1 ATS, 0-4 SU) - QB Matt Stafford says he is getting closer towards being back in the lineup, but for the time being, QB Shaun Hill is earning cover after cover for his team. NFL betting fans took huge advantage of the Lions, who were catching 14.5 points and nearly ended up winning outright at Lambeau Field over the weekend. This team is the epitome of the frisky bunch in the NFL, but this week, that will be tested, as the St. Louis Rams are coming to town as short underdogs and would love to get over the .500 mark for the first time in eons.
6: St. Louis Rams (3-1 ATS, 2-2 SU) - Ok, so maybe it isn't quite the "Greatest Show on Turf," but the Rams are out to prove that they can go from having the worst record in the NFL to being a playoff contender in the weak NFC West. QB Sam Bradford has won twice this year, which doubles what was accomplished last season in the Gateway to the West. He can already start clearing off the space on his mantle for his Rookie of the Year Award, especially if he outduels fellow rookie RB Jahvid Best this weekend when St. Louis visits the Detroit Lions.
7: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1 ATS, 1-2 SU) - The Bucs fell out of the Top 10 last week due to the plethora of 2-1 ATS teams, but with seemingly half of them falling out of favor, the Bucs took advantage on their bye and moved back into the poll. This is a team that badly needs a statement win, and going on the road and grabbing a 'W' against a team that was in the playoffs last year would do just that. The Bucs have a real chance to make a lot noise this week.
8: Chicago Bears (2-2 ATS, 3-1 SU) - Was Sunday Night Football and anomaly or a trend waiting to happen for Da Bears? The men from the Windy City were absolutely embarrassed and dominated in every facet of the game on Sunday night, as the New York Giants rolled them over. QB Jay Cutler once again looked like the Jay Cutler of old. If that keeps up, this team could be beaten this week against the Carolina Panthers. If that happens, watch out for the ship to start sinking in Chicago.
9: Indianapolis Colts (2-2 ATS, 2-2 SU) - We're going to give Indy the benefit of the doubt about having played a very tough schedule to start the season, but we're starting to run out of lifelines for this team. QB Peyton Manning can only bring this team so far on his own two shoulders, and it is starting to really seem like there isn't enough defense here to make a difference. Add DB Melvin Bullitt to the list of safeties that are now out for the season for Indianapolis as well.
10: Baltimore Ravens (2-2 ATS, 3-1 SU) - If you go on the road and take wins against both the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers, you deserve to be in the Top 10 of every set of power rankings in the world. This is no exception for Baltimore, as the Ravens really have done a nice job this year of beating some of the best teams in the league. The schedule is still rough, but this week should be a bit of a reprieve. The secondary will get a huge test though, from QB Kyle Orton and the Denver Broncos.
