Week 4 of the 2022-23 NFL season is now over and its time to take a look at Week 5 of the NFL. Now it’s time for 2022-23 NFL Week 5 Power Rankings. The NFL went abroad this week for the first time and beyond exporting America’s favorite sport, it also kicked off an extended Sunday of action amid an eventful weekend of football. Some teams sunk further down the standings while others hit .500 and received a few more rays of hope in the process.
With all that in mind and factoring in everything from overall roster strength, to quarterback play, to the coaching staff, here is the latest edition of NFL power rankings and where every team stacks up from 1 to 32 heading into Week 5 of the 2022 season.
2022-23 NFL Week 5 Power Rankings – Top 5
1- Philadelphia Eagles – The NFL’s only remaining undefeated team after four weeks. Philly’s most recent victory was a character-defining win. Going down 14 to 0, they took a punch from a quality Jags team but answered back with 29 straight points. Miles Sanders’ success on the ground was a reminder that the Birds’ offense can attack defenses by either running or passing. Haason Reddick heating up is a troubling development for opponents. This team takes care of the football (only two turnovers) and they also seize it (ten takeaways). The Eagles are a problem and they’re showing no signs of slowing.
2 – Buffalo Bills – Though it was a narrow win over Baltimore, it was a win all the same. And a very important one when it comes to AFC playoff picture implications. Buffalo gets Pittsburgh this week but it’s hard not to look ahead to their Week 6 matchup against Kansas City.
3 – Kansas City Chiefs – Next level analysis: Patrick Mahomes makes the Chiefs a threat in every game and in every season. KC’s Week 3 loss to Indy felt like a fluke and their Week 4 win confirmed as much.
4 – Miami Dolphins – Scary to see Tua Tagovailoa go down like he did in Cincy. Hard to know what to make of this team’s outlook after his serious head injury. If Tua is healthy, they’re really good. If Teddy Bridgewater is starting for an extended period of time, they’re probably an average team at best.
5 – Baltimore Ravens – If the season ended today, the Ravens wouldn’t be in the playoffs. Fortunately for them, the season does not end today. Baltimore’s two losses have been very close and against high quality teams. They’re going to be OK, especially since they have the fourth-easiest remaining strength of schedule.
