8. Green Bay Packers (-1)
Aaron Rodgers and the passing game are great, but I don’t really know what else the Packers do well. Defensively they are fine and what I thought would be the best running game in the NFL, just hasn’t materialized like I thought it would.
Again, the passing game is great but I have concerns about what they are going to do vs a good pass rush and good coverage behind it, especially if the other team can put up points easily.
7. Buffalo Bills (-2)
Josh Allen can do so many things for an offense and the addition of Diggs has been outstanding, but today just wasn’t their day.
There is no doubt that in a similar situation, the Bills win 9 out of 10 of those games. However, they lost to a Hail Mary. Oh well, no use dwelling on a fluke.
The reason why they are down in these power rankings is because a big part of the synergy on that team has been the Bills defense helping compensate for the mistakes that the offense makes at times. If the defense can’t win as frequently as they used to, then Josh Allen starts to become a liability despite all that he offers.
