NFL Power Rankings: The ‘where’s the reset button?’ tier

It would be safe to assume that the Las Vegas Raiders didn’t expect to lose five of their first seven games after adding Devante Adams and Chandler Jones to what was a playoff team in 2021. Josh McDaniels and the Raiders have struggled mightily, and if the Raiders can’t turn things around soon Las Vegas may be looking to take a gamble on a new head coach and quarterback in the offseason, as Derek Carr’s contract would only leave the Raiders with $5.6 million in dead cap if Vegas decides to move on Carr after the 2023 league year begins.

2-6. Previous: 23rd. Pittsburgh Steelers. 27. team. 55.

Kenny Pickett got an on-field view of the team that he grew up cheering for in Week 8. Unfortunately, he found himself on the wrong end of the final score as the starting quarterback of their opponent.

We don’t say this often. It feels like we shouldn’t ever say this, but the Pittsburgh Steelers look to officially be in rebuilding mode. The Steelers, for the first time since the 1980s, appear to be headed towards losing more than ten games.

They’re in the bottom five statistically in both offensive yards gained per game and defensive yards allowed per game. With a league-worst point differential of -77, it may be time to begin preparing for the 2023 season.
