Week 3 NFL Power Rankings: Ravens and Packers are electric
By Will Lomas
30. Washington Football Team (-4)
Washington is exceptional on the defensive line and Terry McLaurin is very good. That is about as far as I can go with the compliments.
I don’t think that Dwayne Haskins is going to be the answer at quarterback and that was painfully clear when you see his fellow 2019 classmate Kyler Murray just cooking on the other side.
Well, I said that I was out of compliments, let me say that I think that Antonio Gibson shows flashes of being very interesting and if you squint, you can see the weapons forming on offense for whoever the next QB is. This is going to be a good place for a rookie QB to land, but Haskins just had bad timing entering the NFL.
29. New York Giants
Speaking of 2019 QBs, wow Daniel Jones is bad and I don’t know why people don’t talk about it more often.
Today he had a fumble and an interception and there is no hint of a good quarterback underneath all of the problems he has. Like Washington, I think that this is going to be a team that needs a new quarterback next year and they are going to be less attractive than Washington to incoming rookies.
The biggest difference is that I like the weapons in New York a lot more, although after an ACL injury it is unfortunate that we might not see Saquon Barkley back to full health until the start of 2022.
