Well, folks, this week did not go as some people may have hoped, and the Power Rankings will need to make some sense of it all.
That is not to say that the Ravens are the better team — they lost the game — but there were a lot of questions left unanswered about both of these teams from their first battle of the season.
There were other confusing performances from teams considered to be contenders, including the Bucs squeaking one out against the Giants. That situation will be one to monitor with Antonio Brown preparing to make his debut this week, seeking to redeem himself as a top-tier receiver and rehabilitate his reputation at the same time.
The data last week was hyper-focused, but this week took on a more traditional, macro perspective of the league’s power landscape. It has come to my attention that there may have been a security breach last week which led to compromised data based on the bias of the alleged perpetrator.
In the interest of ensuring no similar incidents occur in the future, I have hired a private security detail which does not permit any tomfoolery under any circumstances.
Now that data* integrity has been restored, let’s see how the Power Rankings shaped up this week.
