NFL Power Rankings, Week 4 Picks

I counted on Elvis Dumervill's return
 from injury helping Denver, not him
 getting injured again.
I usually let my 2011 Predictions speak for themselves for the first couple of weeks, but after the season's been rolling for a couple weeks you start to get a better handle on how the season might shape out.

For instance, my pick of the Broncos going to the playoffs might have been a bit off. I might have given the Chiefs too much credit with six projected wins, and the Bills are one win away from matching the season total I had projected for them. I also didn't predict rookie quarterbacks making such an early impact despite the lockout.

So, here are my power rankings for the NFL through the first three weeks and my picks for Week 4. I rank these teams as who I think would win a best of seven series.

1. New Orleans Saints
2. Green Bay Packers
3. Baltimore Ravens
4. Dallas Cowboys
5. New England Patriots
