NFL Power Rankings: Cowboys Drop Despite Win

The Cowboys slipped one spot from No. 13 to No. 14 in SB Nation's NFL Power Rankings, Week 3.

14. Dallas Cowboys (1-1, LW: 13): They get bumped down a notch despite winning because I needed some room for the Redskins to move up. The best way to move ahead of the Redskins? Beat them in Week 3.

Washington jumped from No. 22 to No. 13 based on their 2-0 start, including their win Sunday against No. 21 Arizona (and previously, No. 17 NY Giants). The Cowboys lost narrowly to No. 3 and beat No. 20, both on the road, so I'm not quite sure how that all adds up. As Thorman says, though, the Cowboys can remedy that at home Monday night.

The Packers and Patriots, yours truly's radical preseason picks, lead the poll. The Patriots jumped the Ravens, who fell to No. 5 after their miserable loss to the Titans. The Eagles still lead the way in the NFC East, but they did fall from No. 4 to No. 9.
