Our panel has voted on the top 25 teams in the league just like the AP does for college football. We decided to tally up all the votes and rank our top 25 teams in the NFL. Our panel this week consists of 12 DTR staff writers: Lewie Bartone, Skyler Carlin, Jake Ellenbogen, Daniel Fox, Blaine Grisak, Rick Harriman, Bailey Irrgang, Alexis Kraft, Brent Lancaster, Hunter Sanders, Barry Tolli and Jason Tyra.
Our method of doing this was assigning a point total to every ranking place from 1-to-25. So, for instance, if a team like the Chiefs were in first they would receive 25 points on that ballot whereas if they were in 25th they would only receive one point. We realize it’s early on in the year and a lot can change which is why we started the DTR Power 25 right at the end of the first quarter of the NFL season.
Other receiving votes: Giants 16, Bengals 11, Eagles 7, Washington 2, Cowboys 1
