What’s Good Supremacy Ranking Revealed
By Cameron Buford, Whatsgoodinsports.com
As week 5 of the young National Football League season concludes, we felt this would be a good time to reveal our initial What’s Good Supremacy Ranking of the season. Though the season is young, some team have already established themselves as the teams to beat this season, and others, well let’s just say, it’s still early in the season. So luckily, for those teams, there is still a lot of football to be played.
In reverse order we have listed what we believe to the be the top performing teams in the NFL;
#10 Chicago Bears- The development of 2nd year QB Mitchell Tribisky and the recent signing of MVP candidate Khalil Mack has the Nears leading their division. Though their defense is young their new addition will give Trubisky many opportunities to score points.
#9 Tennessee Titans- There is nothing pretty about the way the Titans play football! Run the ball stop the run and let your young agile make a play or two during the game. This appears to be their formula and they the players that play to those expectations. Teams will have to play solid football to beat these guys!
#8 Cincinnati Bengals- Andy Dalton and the Bengals have found ways to come back in games early this season. Their defense has been solid for multiple years now, and if Marvin Lewis can find a way to get both units working together, this team may actually reach their potential.
#7 Los Angeles Chargers- This Chargers team is loaded! Their new addition Derwin James solidifies the back side of that defense. Matching that D, with that consistent offense lead by veteran Phillip Rivers will give them a chance to make a deep playoff run.
#6 Carolina Panthers- As Cam Newton continues to develop, he now has talent around him to assist him on the offensive side of the ball. Now that the offense has become more efficient their tough, opportunistic defense which continues to keep them in each game and makes them a tough matchup for most teams in the league.
#5 New Orleans Saints- Just as they have been for years now, the Saints will go as far as Drew Brees leads them. Though they have improved their defense, this is still an offensive team that will look to outscore most opponents they face.
#5 New England Patriots- led by their cerebral Head Coach Bill Belichick and their MVP Candidate Tom Brady. This well-coached team will not beat themselves and will take advantage of any mistakes your team is likely to make.
#4 Jacksonville Jaguars- These young Jaguars are showing they are ready for prime time! Their braggadocio’s defense paired with their strong running game, allows the young Blake Bortles to be a game manager with minimal expectations. This combination solidifies them as solid a playoff team and will make them a scary team to play late in the season.
#3 Minnesota Vikings- They brought in Kurt Cousins to replace Case Keenum as their QB of the future. Drafted to be a backup QB, Cousins has been brought in to get the Vikings over the proverbial hump this season. Since the Vikings did make it to the NFC Championship last season, the Vikings brass are expecting Cousins to lead them to the Superbowl! That is a lot to ask of Cousins, in my opinion.
#2 Kansas City Chiefs- This Chiefs team has also replaced their QB and young Patrick Mahomes is taking full advantage of his opportunity to start, by becoming the first QB in league history to reach 10 touchdowns thrown, so early in their season. His ability to throw the ball up the field has made that Kansas City Chiefs offense even more potent, than last season.
#1 Los Angeles Rams- The Rams have been more impressive on offense than any other team in the league. Goff is looking like the second coming of Joe Montana and the Rams offense is reminding fans of the “greatest show on turf” teams from the past. Though their defense has been beset by injuries, their key defensive acquisitions should be healthy for their upcoming playoff push.
This is our initial Supremacy rankings of the season and this will remain a fluid situation from week to week. This list will be revisited in the coming weeks, we will largely base our list on what we see from teams around the league. This is how we see the best teams in the league thus far, I’d be interested to know how differently you have the teams ranked as compared our NFL Supremacy Rankings.
