It was another quality week of football around the NFL. The Tennessee Titans continued their strong start with a 20-17 comeback victory against the San Diego Chargers. The Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins remain undefeated. The Pittsburgh Steelers remained winless. The Indianapolis Colts and Baltimore Ravens pulled off two of the biggest upsets of September. The Colts were approximately a 10-point underdog against the San Francisco 49ers. Yet, the Colts won, 27-7.

Here were Titan Sized’s NFL power rankings for all AFC teams heading into Week 3. Where will the Titans—and all 16 teams—rank heading into Week 4?

16 Jacksonville Jaguars (0-3)
Shhhhhh….. Most Jaguars fans would like to finish that syllable for Jordan Todman.

15 Pittsburgh Steelers (0-3)
What happened to this team? The wheels completely fell off once they fell behind 24-3 in the first half against the Chicago Bears. Now they prepare for a London showdown against another 0-3 team: the Minnesota Vikings.

14 Oakland Raiders (1-2)
They’ve been nowhere near as bad as the Jaguars or Steelers. Both of their losses have come against potential AFC playoff threats. They’ll have a good chance at returning to .500 when they host the Washington Redskins.

13 Cleveland Browns (1-2)
Throwing games just so they could make the No. 16 spot in these power rankings? Too bad Brian Hoyer-led victories against NFC teams count. Not for much though.

12 Buffalo Bills (1-2)
This team was minutes away from a 0-3 start. Both losses have come to AFC East opponents. There’s a lot of work to do with that roster.

11 New York Jets (2-1)
Maybe the worst 2-1 team in the league. Are the Jets as good as their record indicates? They’ll face a difficult road challenge when they play the Tennessee Titans.
