The Fansided network of NFL sites has begun a new tradition of voting on an NFL top 25 poll, similar to the polls used in college football. NFL editors for Fansided sites vote on the best 25 teams in the NFL, and every week we’ll update you on how the Fansided team thinks they rank.

Why 25? Why not. It’s the traditional college football system, and it’s a fun take on power rankings that will further embarrass those at the bottom of the league, and be exciting for those at the top of the rankings as well.

Here is the full list:

Rank Team (1st Place Votes) Points
1 Denver Broncos (3) 232
2 Seattle Seahawks (4) 230
3 San Francisco 49ers (2) 227
4 Atlanta Falcons 215
5 Green Bay Packers 205
6 Houston Texans 194
7 Baltimore Ravens 180
8 New England Patriots 170
9 Cincinnati Bengals 163
10 Washington Redskins 149
11 Indianapolis Colts 148
12 New York Giants 141
13 Minnesota Vikings (1) 122
14 New Orleans Saints 118
15 Chicago Bears 115
16 St. Louis Rams 101
17 Pittsburgh Steelers 99
18 Dallas Cowboys 82
19 Miami Dolphins 68
20 Carolina Panthers 55
21 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 54
22 Detroit Lions 46
23 San Diego Chargers 35
24 Kansas City Chiefs 30
25 Arizona Cardinals 24

Also receiving votes were the Philadelphia Eagles, Tennessee Titans, Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. The Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders were the only teams to not receive a single top 25 vote.

    Its about right, given our inability to win against winning clubs. Vikings and Redskins rankings are redonk though

    • LeoTPP

      Yeah, someone gave the Vikings a number one vote, which is way off base. Once they lose a couple games, that will level out.

  • Ken Boehlke

    Leo, do you have a vote in this? If so, where’s your breakdown.

    • LeoTPP

      I did have a vote, but I didn’t save my rankings. I had the Buccaneers in the top 15, though, and did not have the Panthers ranked.

    I think we should be higher than the panthers and a few others. but that’s ok. means we will sneak up on a few teams
