Blitzalytics' Week 1 NFL Power Rankings

Graphic by Robert Robinson

Where’s your team ranked heading into the regular season?

Football – yes real, games-that-actually-matter, regular season football – is officially back this week. Of course, there has been no shortage of league storylines leading up to Thursday night’s kickoff at Soldier Field between the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. Andrew Luck’s retirement. Holdouts by Ezekiel Elliott and Melvin Gordon. Houston’s multiple blockbuster trades involving Jadeveon Clowney and Laremy Tunsil. All of these headlines have all been at the top of the NFL news cycle within the past TEN days, each of which has had an impact on our consensus NFL power rankings heading into week 1.

It's difficult to dethrone the reigning Super Bowl champions without at least giving them a chance to defend their top spot in our rankings from the end of last season. How long can they hold off the likes of the high-flying Chiefs and Rams? Will the loud offseason moves in Cleveland pay dividends right out of the gate? How far will the Colts fall after Andrew Luck's sudden retirement?

Check back every Wednesday throughout the NFL season to find the biggest movers in the latest weekly power rankings.
