Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

//ALEX SIMPSON//

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers couldn’t continue their impressive performance and lost to the Steelers last Monday. Ryan Fitzpatrick still managed to put up 411 yards and became the first NFL Quarterback to have three consecutive games with 400+ passing yards. The only reason they lost was because Fitzpatrick also managed to throw three interceptions. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are still a top team, watch out for them next week.

The Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen showed that they can actually put up a fight. The Bills defenses knocked Kirk Cousins up and got two fumble recoveries and one interception off of him. The Bills defense held Cousins to 296 yards and one touchdown in the game. Cousins was hot coming into Week 3 and was harshly shut down by this below-average Bills team. Josh Allen also managed to score two rushing touchdowns and had one passing touchdown. If the Bills keep playing like they did against the Vikings they will make an interesting case for a playoff run, but it’s not very likely.
