Through four weeks of the 2015 National Football League (NFL) season, there are six teams that remain undefeated. Most of those teams are not surprising to many, although some like the Atlanta Falcons few saw coming. Also, one division has two teams undefeated (NFC South). For this power rankings list, I will rank the teams who I feel are the best undefeated teams in the NFL right now.
1. New England Patriots
Had the judge not overturned the “Deflate-gate” ruling, New England would be without Tom Brady and would not be undefeated. But with Brady starting they are still clearly the team to beat in the NFL.
2. Carolina Panthers
This seems to the best Panthers team in the Cam Newton era. What is most impressive is that they are still undefeated without their best defensive player Luke Kuechly, who has been out due to concussion symptoms. Whenever they get him back, this team could make a deep run in the NFC.
3. Green Bay Packers
Aaron Rodgers is one of the best quarterbacks on the planet and the Packers defense seems like they are getting stronger by the week. No one would want to play them at Lambeau Field come January.
4. Denver Broncos
Peyton Manning is still Peyton Manning. Whatever beef was going on between Manning and head coach Gary Kubiak is just a thing of the past as the Broncos are still major contenders to win the AFC and the Super Bowl.
5. Atlanta Falcons
New head coach Dan Quinn has brought a defensive mindset to Atlanta in which the Falcons are succeeding early in the season. Quarterback Matt Ryan still remains as the focus for that team. Can he lead the Falcons to that next level still remains to be seen?
6. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals have made the playoffs every season since Andy Dalton became the starting quarterback. They are a good team that can win the tough AFC North. However, the question remains is can they win a playoff game? Last time the franchise won a playoff was 1990. We will find out as they appear to be on their way to yet another postseason.
Which team do you think is currently the best in the NFL?
