New 2020 NFL Power Rankings midway through training camp

It felt as though it would never get here but we finally have 2020 NFL football. All 32 teams have begun their respective training camps and the long doldrums of the offseason are finally subsiding.

That means there’s finally plenty of news to talk about — although not all of it is great. For instance, the Dallas Cowboys lost starting defensive tackle Gerald McCoy to a quadriceps injury which cost them their biggest free-agent signing before he ever played a game. Even so, their defense looks revamped which could help them in our latest 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

Another team that had some injury news was the Baltimore Ravens who lost cornerback Iman Marshall to a knee injury. Like Dallas, they remain deep at the recently depleted position, so their ranking shouldn’t be too damaged.

And with that being said, we dive right in with our latest power rankings, starting with the team with no name.

32. team. 58. . . Previous: 32nd. Washington Commanders

Washington stays put at 32 at the bottom of the NFL Power Rankings

Ok, I have to admit it — the uniform is cool. I was like everyone else when the Washington football team actually decided to be called the Washington Football Team for the 2020 season but the generic look is nice. Of course, they could have still come up with a name but at least they will look good. And at least they got rid of the offensive name, finally.

As for their outlook this season, if they had 53 Chase Youngs on their roster, they would be unstoppable. This kid has looked fantastic in drills as the rookie has been tossing offensive linemen around like they’re the rookies.

Head coach Ron Rivera has a lot to work with on defense with Young and Montez Sweat. Unfortunately, their offense is suspect at best and they’re going to have a hard time keeping pace with the rest of the NFC East this season.
