2. Seattle Seahawks (+1)
The Seattle Seahawks are undefeated and they have scored 30+ in every game this season, which means they have averaged 35.5 points per game despite playing the New England Patriots and Miami Dolphins who are two of the better defenses in the NFL.
There isn’t much to be said about this defense, but despite Tyler Lockett being slowed down today, the Seahawks still had two receivers combine for 7 receptions, 201 yards, and a touchdown (D.K. Metcalf and David Moore). That sort of firepower and consistency are going to be very hard to beat.
1. Kansas City Chiefs (+1)
Maybe it was crazy to have the Chiefs lower than this, but I still maintain that the most difficult matchup in the NFL is Lamar Jackson. However, the best team in the league is the Kansas City Chiefs, and even though I always knew that, it took a visual reminder for me to put it on the page.
Look, it is very easy to say that I have always liked the Chiefs more but I had them #2 in these power rankings. I was wrong, the Kansas City Chiefs are the best team in the NFL until proven differently and they are a few weeks away from going undefeated for a calendar year including the playoffs and the Super Bowl.
