NFL power rankings entering Week 3 of 2022 season (previous rank in parentheses):
1. Bills (1): Their newest weapon? Rarely utilized Sam Martin, who turns punts into turnover-creating misadventures for the opposition.
2. Chiefs (2): Does Andy Reid really get adequate appreciation? Last week, he joined George Halas, Don Shula and Bill Belichick as the only coaches with career win-loss records 100 games over .500. Reid now sits at 235-135-1.
3. Eagles (6): QB Jalen Hurts’ dark horse MVP candidacy is already fading … as he’s becoming an increasingly lighter horse.
4. Buccaneers (3): TBD who QB Tom Brady will be throwing to this week against Green Bay in light of WR Mike Evans’ suspension. TB12 should have all his guys back soon, but that’s apparently not dissuading him from recruiting Odell Beckham Jr. for a rainy day.
5. Dolphins (11): You’ve got to hand it to QB Tua Tagovailoa, who went deep Sunday – half of his six TD passes covering at least 20 air yards, which doubled his career total entering Week 2.

6. Chargers (5): The Bolts should be comfortably favored in their next six games … presuming QB Justin Herbert stops absorbing hits that fold him like a lawn chair.
7. Ravens (4): Still think QB Lamar Jackson is too reliant on his tight ends? Five of his six TD passes have gone to wide receivers. Too bad he doesn’t get to face Baltimore’s defense, which has already surrendered seven TD passes.
8. Rams (8): All-Pro CB Jalen Ramsey hasn’t played well in recent games, nor have the defending…
