The Eagles continued to fly high, showing the league that they could beat the Jaguars in a downpour in Philadelphia by air or on the ground. Following the Eagles are the Bills, who must rally to beat the Ravens, while the Chiefs skip the Buccaneers.

After Week 4, here are my thoughts on the top 10 teams in the league.

1. Philadelphia Eagles (4-0)

The most complete team in football beat a gritty Jaguars team using an old-school formula that still works. With a punishing offense led by Jalen Hurts and Miles Sanders, plus a defense led by Fletcher Cox and an excellent defensive line, this team can go head-to-head with anyone.

2. Buffalo Bills (3-1)

Don’t let the Bills’ tendency to play close games undercut a rock-solid roster that includes players who are likely to take over. Josh Allen delivered an MVP-caliber performance that was enough to give the Bills a chance to be the last standing team at the end of the season.

3. Kansas City Chiefs (3-1)

The Chiefs haven’t always been pretty, but they’ve found a way to get behind a more balanced but still very effective offense than in previous versions.

4. Miami Dolphins (3-1)

The Tua Tagovailoa controversy will overshadow the solid work Mike McDaniel has done to get Fins off to a good start. Miami is one of the few teams with both explosive offense and chance defense, with the potential to create scoring opportunities anywhere on the floor.

5. Dallas Cowboys (3-1)

Credit to Mike McCarthy for discovering a winning formula that works with or without a star quarterback. The combination of stingy defense and a strong running game has always worked with this team and continues to be the best way for Dallas to win.

6. Green Bay Packers (3-1)

It’s not always pretty, but the Packers’ blueprint for winning games could help them go further in the playoffs. The defensive end has enough blue-chip talent to take Green Bay to the NFC Championship and beyond.

Are Packers legitimate contenders after overtime win over Patriots?

Are the Packers an official contender? Colin Cowherd said “not so fast”.

7. Minnesota Vikings (3-1)

Kevin O’Connell’s offensive magic makes it tough for the Vikings. The rookie head coach has Kirk Cousins ​​playing well and Justin Jefferson playing well as the team’s No. 1 receiver.

8. Los Angeles Rams (2-1)

The defending champ lurks in the bushes, waiting for back-to-back victories.

9. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-2)

The Jaguars went head-to-head with some of the league’s heavyweights and didn’t hold back. If Doug Pederson can get his young team to undo the self-inflicted mistakes, the Jaguars could be a surprise contender at the end of the season.

10. New York Giants (3-1)

Despite overseeing a flawed roster, Brian Dabore is still looking for a way to win. The Giants lack explosive weapons and a solid offensive line on the perimeter, but Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley have been on the court weekly enough to set the stage for scoring opportunities.
