6. Green Bay Packers (-4)
Wow, I did not see that coming.
Sure, you could have told me that the Packers were going to lose to the Bucs, but after going up 10-0 I thought the game was going to be controlled by Green Bay and that we were going to see a shootout.
Instead, we found out that Aaron Rodgers is still human when he threw a pick-six, and then two plays later he threw an interception that was nearly returned for a touchdown.
After that, the Packers didn’t make a sound the entire game as the Bucs dominated every facet of their primetime matchup.
Aaron Rodgers has been the master of self-motivation before and he seems to have a pretty quick memory, but that was tough to watch and I have to wonder whether or not the rest of the team has a memory as short as their leader. If not then we could be a few weeks away from talking about the NFC North-leading…Chicago Bears.
5. Baltimore Ravens (-1)
The Ravens falling down the power rankings a little bit has less to do with what they did today, and more to do with what I think they are.
Right now the Ravens look like a team reliant on Lamar Jackson’s legs more than his arm and they also look like a team that is capable of beating bad teams, but who isn’t always as dominant as people think when they can’t stay on top of an opposing team.
The defensive line showed out today which is great, but I don’t know if I think this team is any better than I did two weeks ago and I am not sure what they can do to convince me until they win against a good team without holding the lead the entire game.
