Two weeks into the 2022 NFL season, only six undefeated teams remain.
Week 2 featured several major comebacks that led to dramatic finishes across the league. Colin Cowherd assessed the landscape of the league in his weekly “Herd Hierarchy,” which has a new team at the top of this list.
Here are the teams that made Cowherd’s top 10 ahead of Week 3 (with previous rankings in parentheses), alongside insights from FOX Bet.
10. Los Angeles Rams (7)
Overall record: 1-1 | Last week: Rams won 31-27 vs. Atlanta Falcons
Colin’s thoughts: “There’s not much to like about the Rams. Their third-down defense is lousy. They’re not running the ball effectively. They’ve given up the ball six times – tied for the most in the NFL. They’re averaging 58 yards rushing, that’s 31st.
“Why do I like them? I trust Sean McVay, Aaron Donald, that defensive front and Matthew Stafford. But right now, Stafford didn’t play in the [preseason] games and didn’t practice much in the preseason. They’re choppy up front and they’re a mess. They’re doing things that lose football games. But I know my coach is an A, my quarterback is an A, and my defensive front is a real thing, so I think they’ll figure it out.”
NFL championship odds: +1200
Up next: Rams at Cardinals (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX)
9. Baltimore Ravens (4)
Overall record: 1-1 | Last week: Ravens lost 42-38 vs. Miami Dolphins
Colin’s thoughts: “This is a really good team. This is the only team averaging seven yards per play – that’s the best in the league. They’re fine. They’ve only given up one turnover, that’s tied for the lowest in the league.
“They do a lot right. They had a terrible quarter because they’ve got a lot of rookies in the backend. Baltimore is an excellent organization and I probably have them too low.”
NFL championship odds: +1700
Up next: Ravens at Patriots (1 p.m. ET, FOX)
8. Minnesota Vikings (3)
Overall record: 1-1 | Last week: Vikings lost 24-7 vs. Philadelphia Eagles
Colin’s thoughts: “Kirk Cousins is now 2-10 on ‘Monday Night…
