Recency bias teams– I assume a lot of power rankings will have the Dolphins or Lions at No. 1. The only reason is because of what happened most recently. Don’t forget what happened before.
The Dolphins failed their one big test to date, losing to the Bills by 28. The Lions lost to the Seahawks at home. Miami’s dud and Detroit’s stumble didn’t happen in Week 6 but it doesn’t mean we can ignore them. That said, both teams have an argument to be No. 1. The Lions in particular have a great argument to top the rankings, but are you ready to live in a world where the Lions are the NFL’s best team? That might be a sign of the apocalypse.
