NFL Power Rankings: The ‘more surprises of the good and bad variety’ tier

The Jacoby Brissett experience has been just about what Cleveland Browns fans could have expected, one that leaves them yearning for Deshaun Watson. Nick Chubb has been phenomenal all season. He leads, leading the NFL in both rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. Myles Garett has 7.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. He is one of the early frontrunners for the Defensive Player of the Year Award.

Despite these amazing individual efforts, the Browns own a losing record because they haven’t been able to seal the deal late, losing four games by three points or less.

3-5. Previous: 30th. New Orleans Saints. 21. team. 15.

The only bright side of the New Orleans Saints 2022 season favors the Philadelphia Eagles. They hold the Saints’ 2023 first-round draft pick.

New Orleans chose to roll with Andy Dalton going forward, but he doesn’t feel like much of an upgrade from Jameis Winston. Despite all of this, the Saints find themselves alive in the race to win the NFC South.

Dennis Allen’s club has seen six of their eight games decided by eight points or fewer, and they are 2-4 in those games.
