How quickly can people’s opinions shift when it comes to NFL power rankings? I’m excited to see where the New England Patriots rank tomorrow in Marima’s Power Ranking Roundup because I’m guessing they’ll be all over the place.Back in week 1 Authentic Isaiah Wynn Jersey , the Patriots ranked an average of 2.1, but that slipped to an average of 5.4 after week 2 and plummeted to an average of 11.5 after week 3’s demoralizing loss to the Detroit Lions.As we all saw on Sunday, the reports of the Patriots death were greatly exaggerated as they walloped the Miami Dolphins. Defensive stalwarts Trey Flowers and Patrick Chung returned to the lineup, while Dont’a Hightower looked like his old self. On offense, Josh Gordon is learning the offense and Julian Edelman is back from his suspension.Where do the Patriots deserve to be ranked after the first quarter of the regular season? They should be behind the undefeated Los Angeles Rams and Kansas City Chiefs and it would be fair for them to trail the Jacksonville Jaguars because of the week 2 debacle.But how many other teams would you rank ahead of the Patriots and their 2-2 record?There are five teams with 3-1 records in the AFC, including the Dolphins and Jaguars. The other three are the Baltimore Ravens Limited Danny Etling Jersey , Cincinnati Bengals, and Tennessee Titans. The NFC only has two, in the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints. There aren’t any other teams I’d really consider being in the debate.The Dolphins clearly shouldn’t rank ahead of the Patriots and I have a hard time putting the Titans and their three-straight victories of 3 points in front of New England, too.At worst, I have the Patriots ranking eighth. At best, I have them ranking fourth. I would expect the average that Marima produces will have New England coming around fifth or sixth Sony Michel Jersey Salute to Service , just because some stragglers won’t be ready to admit that the week 2-3 Patriots were not representative of how good this team actually is. During Sunday’s loss to the Steelers, New England receiver Josh Gordon didn’t do much, catching only one pass for 19 yards. More surprisingly, Gordon wasn’t on the field for the final play from scrimmage for a Patriots team trailing by seven.It was fourth and 15 from the Steelers 21, a snap that came after Pittsburgh called a timeout. But there was no Gordon among the targets available to Tom Brady.“We had just kind of run quite a few plays in a row,” offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said Tuesday when asked about the situation by reporters. “I know there was a timeout there before that. Both of those guys have worked at that spot and in that type of a situation Duke Dawson Jersey , and based on what we were doing, we made the choice to go with [Cordarrelle Patterson] at that point — no ulterior motive on that at all. Just put a fresh guy in to go in there and do something on the last play to see if we could get into the end zone, and it is what it is.”It was what it was, a failed effort to tie the game, and an outcome that has many wondering whether the Patriots have lost their mojo. From the collapse of situational football against the Dolphins to the undisciplined play against the Steelers (14 penalties is a staggering amount of flags for a Bill Belichick team) to increasing questions about Father Time making his final kick toward Tom Brady, the Patriots are now guaranteed to have fewer than 12 wins for the first time since 2009 Authentic James Harrison Jersey , and they’re in danger of not having a bye for the first time since that same season.
