Another team turning heads is the Los Angeles Rams, climbing fast up the ranks after a road win over the Cowboys. Sean McVay has emerged as a Coach of the Year contender after getting LA to 3-1 in his first season.
CBS Sports has the Bills as the eighth-best team heading into Week 5. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, and the Denver Broncos are all in the top 10 as well.
The Rams are No. 9 on Yahoo Sports’ power rankings, and the Philadelphia Eagles climbed to No. 6. Unfortunately for the New England Patriots, they lost to the Carolina Panthers in Week 4, causing them to slip out of the top 10. But the Broncos are finally in the top 5.
So far, 2017 has been another great year for Brady, even though the 3-2 Patriots are off to an uncharacteristically slow start. He orchestrated the biggest comeback victory in Super Bowl LI, broke plenty of Super Bowl records, and recently won the AFC Offensive Player of the Week for the 28th time — which is the most in league history.
The Kansas City Chiefs lost their first game, in Week 6 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. But Kansas City wasn’t the only team that suffered a huge lost. The Green Bay Packers fell to the Minnesota Vikings, and quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone — which could potentially end his season.
Reid’s delightful new name for his kicking specialist is a play off Butker’s Twitter handle, @ButtKicker87.

Butker’s popularity soared early on Tuesday morning — at least in the Chiefs’ locker room.
