Reviewing AP Power Rankings

By James Walker

According to the Associated Press, there is still some skepticism with the Buffalo Bills. That was perhaps the biggest thing I took from the AP’s first ever NFL Power Rankings.

The Bills, a sleeper pick of many to make the postseason, were ranked No. 19. They were two spots behind the New York Jets, who was ranked No. 17. There is a lot of debate whether the Bills or Jets should be projected as the No. 2 team in the AFC East. The AP picks the Jets.

The New England Patriots were the clear favorite in the AFC East and the No. 2 overall team behind the Green Bay Packers. The rebuilding Miami Dolphins were ranked No. 27 by the AP.
