Wednesday on DNA of Sports, it’s Power Ranking! 3, 2, 1, Go!
Philadelphia (2nd), Dallas (6th) and New York (7th). Apart from Washington, all NFC East teams are in the Top 7 of this Power Ranking. A strong message for a division sometimes considered one of the worst in the league in recent years. If the Eagles and the Cowboys do not move this week, the Giants (+5) enter the dance.
They are part of the best progressions of the week, like the Seahawks (+7) and the Bears (+8). Conversely, the Chargers (-6), Buccaneers (-5) and Packers (-4) are suffering.
Time passes, it’s time to take stock. Here is our ranking. This hierarchy is not only based on the number of successes, but also on the current form. If two teams are close and haven’t played each other recently, one wonders which one would win if the match was played today. Beating the strongest isn’t going to propel you to the top in a snap. Losing to one of the dunces won’t plunge you into the abyss either. You can gain and tumble, tilt and climb.
