Four weeks into the 2019 NFL season and the teams we thought were the best had to scratch and claw for wins, but they won.

Meanwhile, teams we were not sure about showed their flaws and one team keeps on finding ways to win despite missing their starting quarterback.

Let’s take a look at the 2019 Week 4 NFL Power Rankings.

The Undefeated

I am big on early in the season to reward those who are playing well, even if I don’t buy anyone outside of the top two.

  1. New England Patriots (4-0)
  2. Kansas City Chiefs (4-0)
  3. San Francisco 49ers (3-0)

The Flawed

There may be something that keeps these teams from making the leap, but some could be holding water til they get their QB back.

4. New Orleans Saints (3-1)
5. Los Angeles Rams (3-1)
6. Green Bay Packers (3-1)
7. Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
8. Seattle Seahawks (3-1)
9. Chicago Bears (3-1)
10. Buffalo Bills (3-1)
11. Philadelphia Eagles (2-2)
12. Detroit Lions (2-1-1)
13. Houston Texans (2-2)
14. Cleveland Browns (2-2)
15. Baltimore Ravens (2-2)
16. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2)
17. Carolina Panthers (2-2)
18. Minnesota Vikings (2-2)
19. Los Angeles Chargers (2-2)
20. Indianapolis Colts (2-2)
21. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-2)
22. New York Giants (2-2)
23. Tennessee Titans (2-2)
24. Oakland Raiders (2-2)

How are they bad?

Maybe they are missing some pieces, but neither team should be this bad, should they?

25. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-3)
26. Atlanta Falcons (1-3)

Have not lost complete hope

There are obvious deficiencies but they should be able to turn it around

27. Denver Broncos (0-4)
28. Arizona Cardinals (0-3-1)
29. New York Jets (0-3)

Fighting for the first pick

Wins are going to be scarce, although I am sure I just jinxed the Cardinals this week.

30. Cincinnati Bengals (0-4)
31. Miami Dolphins (0-4)
32. Washington Redskins (0-4)

The Skins look lost and like they have quit on Bruce Allen and Jay Gruden.
