Well, Week 3 of the NFL schedule gave us the game of the year (on paper) and a possible AFC Championship Game preview.

Let’s hope if the Chiefs and Ravens meet for the conference title in January, it’s a little better game than Monday night’s was.

Patrick Mahomes continued his wizardry at the quarterback position, throwing for four touchdowns and running for another as Kansas City flexed on Baltimore, 34-20. On the flip-side, Lamar Jackson ran the ball well, but only passed for 97 yards on 15 completions. Jackson is now 21-4 as an NFL starter in the regular season, with three of those losses coming to the Chiefs.

Meanwhile, Seattle continues to play entertaining games and they continue winning them while Green Bay dominated the New Orleans Saints without its best receiver in Davante Adams.

Here’s how the pecking order looks heading into Week 4 around the NFL.

Arizona Sports Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

1. Kansas City Chiefs (3-0)

Flip passes to fullbacks and TDs to tackles? Mahomes is fun.

2. Seattle Seahawks (3-0)
The league may want proof that Russell Wilson is from this planet.

3. Green Bay Packers (3-0)
And that Rodgers didn’t hitch a ride with him?

4. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0)

Big Ben has been outstanding in his return from a lost 2019.

5. Baltimore Ravens (2-1)
It wasn’t all on him, but Lamar Jackson still can’t beat KC.

6. Buffalo Bills (3-0)

Josh Allen can be reckless, but he’s a lot of fun to watch.

7. Tennessee Titans (3-0)
Maybe fraudulent? 3-0 against bad teams with a point differential of +6.

8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1)
It’ll be tougher for Brady if Godwin can’t stay healthy.

9. New England Patriots (2-1)
Wouldn’t want to be a DC scheming against their run game.

10. San Francisco 49ers (2-1)
Racked by injuries but in a ridiculously easy stretch of schedule.

11. Los Angeles Rams (2-1)
Kinda got a kick out of them complaining about a bad PI call.

12. Chicago Bears (3-0)
*See Tennessee, except they’re +12 in point differential.

13. Indianapolis Colts (2-1)
Rivers completing 78.3% of his passes so far.

14. New Orleans Saints (1-2)
Will Sean Payton kill the Taysom Hill experiment?

15. Dallas Cowboys (1-2)

77 points allowed over the last two weeks.

16. Cleveland Browns (2-1)
Mayfield’s win total approaching his number of national commercials.

17. Las Vegas Raiders (2-1)
Giving up 250 yards on the ground can’t make Gruden happy.

18. Arizona Cardinals (2-1)
I guess we can pump the brakes on Kyler Murray’s MVP candidacy?

19. Miami Dolphins (1-2)
Fitzpatrick had his way with Jacksonville.

20. Carolina Panthers (1-2)
No McCaffrey, but gutted out a nice road win against the Chargers.

21. Detroit Lions (1-2)
Nice win at Arizona, but not convinced they’re decent just yet.

22. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-2)
Headed into a very manageable three-game stretch.

23. Los Angeles Chargers (1-2)
Could be 2-1 with a better pitch from Keenan Allen to Austin Ekeler.

24. Washington Football Team (1-2)
They’re not good, but Rivera is right to stick by Haskins.

25. Philadelphia Eagles (0-2-1)
Played for a tie at home vs. Cincinnati. Embarrassing.

26. Houston Texans (0-3)
Schedule’s been brutal, but they’re also not very good.

27. Minnesota Vikings (0-3)
Huge offensive numbers and still couldn’t beat Tennessee.

28. Atlanta Falcons (0-3)

The Falcons just know how to lose games, period.

29. Denver Broncos (0-3)
Vic Fangio’s Broncos teams now 0-7 in September.

30. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2-1)
Joe Burrow proved he can take a hit in Week 3 against Philly.

31. New York Giants (0-3)
At least they’re not the worst team in their own stadium.

32. New York Jets (0-3)

Maybe the worst Jets team ever, and that’s saying something.
