NFL Week 5 Power Rankings: Rams hold top spot, surprising team jumps up to No. 3

If the season ended today, there would be a lot of push for Sean McVay as coach of the year, and rightfully so. He’s done an amazing job leading the Los Angeles Rams to a 4-0 start and the No. 1 spot here in my Power Rankings.

But the guy who has done the best job coaching so far is Tennessee Titans first-year coach Mike Vrabel.

He is the coach of the year so far in my book.

The Titans, despite a slew of injuries, including at the quarterback position, are now 3-1 and have defeated the Jaguars and Eagles the past two weeks. They did so despite having an injured Marcus Mariota, who could barely grip the ball in the victory over the Jaguars. 

The Tennessee defense doesn’t have gaudy numbers, but they are ranked sixth in scoring, the most important stat of all. They are also eighth in sacks per pass play and 10th in third-down defense, which has added up to an impressive start and a unit that has carried this team.

But against the Eagles on Sunday, it was the offense that came alive. A unit that is ranked 28th in scoring helped the Titans rally from down 17-3 to win the game in overtime.
