New, comments

Despite losing their third consecutive game of the season, the Lions did not move much this week in most power rankings.

The Detroit Lions are one of four remaining winless teams, but experts didn't really change their opinion of the Lions after their 24-12 loss to the Broncos Sunday night. Detroit didn't move more than two spots in any of the major national power rankings, and they even moved up in one list. Here's where they rank after three weeks of play in the NFL.

  • SB Nation: 24th (down one spot)
  • NFL.com: 23rd (UP one spot)
  • ESPN: 25th (down one spot)
  • CBS Sports: 21st (down two spots)
  • FOX Sports: 25th (no change)
  • Yahoo! Sports: 22nd (down one spot)
  • To avoid their first 0-4 start since 2010, the Lions will need to defeat the Seattle Seahawks, who rank among most list's top ten, even with a losing record. Seattle ranks 14th (SB Nation), eighth (NFL.com), seventh (ESPN), 10th (CBS Sports), eighth (FOX Sports) and sixth (Yahoo! Sports).
