NFL Offense Power Rankings 2022 | Ranking All 32 Team Offenses
The NFL has never been more loaded with offensive talent.
Across the league, teams are going “all-in” for the 2022 season by bringing in as many playmakers as possible. We saw a record amount of trades involving star quarterbacks this offseason and several of the top receivers in the league (Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams) have changed teams.
But what team has the best offense heading into the upcoming season and who could be poised to take a step backward? Here are our latest power rankings of all 32 offenses in the NFL going into 2022.

NFL Offense Power Rankings
32. Houston Texans
The Texans don’t have a ton of talent on offense, but they are banking on Davis Mills to make a leap in Year 2. Mills started 11 games in 2021, throwing 16 touchdowns to just ten interceptions.
If players such as Nico Collins and Brevin Jordan can also improve in their second year, there is a chance this offense could approach the NFL average. Still, it will take a lot to go right for this team to average over 20 points per game in 2022.
No team in the NFL had fewer big plays (10+ yard rushes/20+ yard receptions) than the Texans with 67. They’ve certainly got a long way to go.
31. Seattle Seahawks
The Seahawks have one of the saddest quarterback competitions in recent memory, as it will be either Drew Lock or Geno Smith under center. Neither inspires much confidence, especially behind their shaky offensive line.
Seattle does have some weapons in the passing game, including D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett. But the fear is that they will be underutilized due to poor quarterback play. Let’s hope that’s not the case in Seattle.
30. Carolina Panthers
Is Sam Darnold actually going to be the quarterback for the Panthers in 2022, or are they going to try to find a veteran upgrade? They need to, or this offense will be among the most boring to watch again this season.
The hope is that a healthy Christian McCaffrey can make this offense more dynamic, but he’s had major problems staying on the field over the last two seasons.

29. New York Giants
There is a lot to be excited about regarding the potential of this offense. The Giants hired Brian Daboll to transform the offense, and he should be able to make them more dynamic and certainly more pass-happy.
However, this offense is still dependent on Daniel Jones. His play in the NFL has been mediocre, so unless Jones takes a massive step forward in Year 4, this offense will likely struggle to put points on the board this year.
28. Jacksonville Jaguars
Trevor Lawrence had a very disappointing rookie season, but it’s hard to blame him too much for what transpired in Jacksonville. Entering his second year there are a lot of expectations on him and new head coach Doug Pederson.
The talent on the offense has undoubtedly improved, but how much? The offensive line is still a mess, and the Jaguars lack a true No. 1 receiver to keep defenses honest.
There is a chance Jacksonville could have a Cincinnati Bengals-like rise in the AFC South, but a lot would need to go right for that to happen.
27. Chicago Bears
Have the Bears done enough to put adequate talent around Justin Fields? Unfortunately, the answer is probably no. And that lack of support will likely hold Chicago’s offense back in 2022.
Still, this is an offense that should be able to run the ball with David Montgomery, and they do have one proven receiver in Darnell Mooney. But other than that, there isn’t a lot to be too excited about here with Chicago’s offense.
26. Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan is gone, so it is officially a new era in Atlanta. But what will the Marcus Mariota-led offense look like with the Falcons?
Atlanta will likely be very run-heavy in 2022 with their passing game taking shots down the field to Drake London and Kyle Pitts. This offense probably won’t be the most consistent on a week-by-week basis, but it could be fun to watch.
25. Washington Commanders
Is Carson Wentz an upgrade over Taylor Henickie? Probably. But how much? Maybe not as much as Washington hopes.
Still, he should be good enough to get the ball to their playmakers, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Terry McLaurin have a career year. But this isn’t an offense that will light up the scoreboard or strike any real fear into opponents.
24. Detroit Lions
The Lions added significant speed to their offense, but both D.J. Chark and Jameson Williams are coming off torn ACLs. Neither may be ready for the start of the season, but they should help this offense become more explosive in the second half of the year.
23. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Steelers had one of the least dynamic offenses in the NFL last season and desperately needed a change at quarterback. Finally, Pittsburgh will get that change as either Mitch Trubisky or Kenny Pickett will start the year under center instead of the retired Ben Roethlisberger.
This offense will still likely struggle to score more than 24 points per game but expect them to be much more fun to watch than in previous seasons.
22. New York Jets
The Jets have the potential to be significantly improved on offense this season. Not only did they add help on the offensive line, but they drafted arguably the top running back (Breece Hall) and wide receiver (Garrett Wilson) in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Keep an eye on second-year wideout Elijah Moore, who averaged over 80 yards per game and scored five touchdowns from Weeks 8-13. Moore missed the rest of the season due to injury but has a chance to be one of the NFL’s most dynamic slot receivers in 2022.
21. Tennessee Titans
The Titans did not have a great offense last year, averaging less than 25 points per game. Now, they’ve traded away A.J. Brown and are hoping that Treylon Burks can take his place in the starting lineup.
The good news for the Titans is that Derrick Henry is healthy and should be ready for a monster workload again this season. Before his injury, he was averaging over 136 rushing yards per game. If he can come back healthy and perform like that again, the Titans will be back in the AFC playoffs.

Despite the criticism that he receives, Ryan Tannehill has led the Titans to three straight postseason appearances. He may not be in the upper echelon of quarterbacks, but he can make enough plays with his arms and his legs to keep this offense moving.
Henry’s presence certainly makes Tannehill a better quarterback, so having him back in the backfield will be a big help.

20. Cleveland Browns
One of the most difficult offenses to rank is the Cleveland Browns. Everything is dependent on Deshaun Watson and how much he will or won’t play in 2022.
But the Browns also have other questions outside of their quarterback. How much does Amari Cooper have left in the tank after a down year in 2021? And how will he fit into the offense?
There is a chance this offense could finish inside the top 10 if Watson plays the whole season. If he doesn’t, they could struggle to put up points when he isn’t on the field.
19. Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins are going to be one of the most fun teams in the NFL this season. They might have the fastest wide receiver duo ever in Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.
But the question is the quarterback. Can Tua Tagovailoa make a leap in Year 3? Or will the Dolphins eventually turn to Teddy Bridgewater?
There is a real chance this offense could finish inside the top five in yards and points if Tua dominates, but it’s tough to rank them there, especially given his play over the last two years.
18. New England Patriots
On paper, the offense for the Patriots looks pretty boring. They don’t have a stud at receiver and the offensive line could be much worse than it was last season. New England also lost offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, who is now the head coach in Las Vegas.
However, this offense finished sixth in points per game last season (27.2), ahead of teams like the Rams, Bengals, and Packers, and recorded the third-most big plays in the NFL (126) as they created a ton of chunk plays in the passing game.
This will be an extremely run-heavy offense, but its potential boils down to whether or not Mac Jones makes a leap in Year 2. If he does, the Patriots should be a top-10 offense again this season.
17. New Orleans Saints
If the Saints have their entire offensive roster on the field for most of the season, they have a great chance to finish in the top five in both yards and points. However, that has been the biggest knock on them over the last few years.
Jameis Winston is coming off a torn ACL. Michael Thomas missed the entire 2021 season due to an injury and is still not cleared to play. And Alvin Kamara is dealing with serious legal issues that could cause him to miss time.
But make no mistake; this offense has a ton of talent and should be far more explosive and dangerous in 2022.
16. Minnesota Vikings
On paper, the Vikings are loaded on offense. They have one of the best wide receiver duos in the league and a fantastic rushing attack. Even the offensive line looks to be in good shape entering the season.
Kirk Cousins is a good quarterback, but he’s not elite and he’s getting older. And that’s the only thing holding this offense back from being truly dominant.
This unit should be good again in 2021, but expect some week-to-week inconsistencies from their quarterback.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eagles made the playoffs with Jalen Hurts in 2021 and somehow added a ton of offensive talent this offseason. The trade for A.J. Brown solved their biggest positional need, and they also improved their offensive line by selecting Cam Jurgens in the second round of the draft.
Philadelphia finally has all the pieces on offense to make a run, but will Hurts become an elite passer? That’s the only cause for concern.
The good news for the Eagles is that they were already an explosive offense last year without Brown. They led the NFL in big plays (10+ yard runs/20+ yard passes) with 128. Adding Brown should make them much more difficult to stop.
14. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts upgraded massively at quarterback by trading away Carson Wentz and acquiring Matt Ryan. They also added a few playmakers to their offense, including rookie wideout Alec Pierce and tight end Jelani Woods.
The only real concern here is the offensive line, as they lost two starters in free agency. They still should be fine in the run game, but can they adequately protect Ryan? If the answer is yes, this should be among the most balanced and efficient offenses in the NFL.
13. Arizona Cardinals
The Cardinals lost a few veterans in free agency, including Christian Kirk and Chase Edmonds, but they were able to trade for Marquise Brown to help make their offense even more explosive.
Arizona will be without DeAndre Hopkins for the first six weeks of the season due to suspension, but they should be fine in the meantime. Keep an eye on Rondale Moore, who could be why the Cardinals are better and more consistent on offense this campaign.
12. Denver Broncos
Could the Broncos finish much higher than this? Absolutely. But there is a chance that Russell Wilson will need some time to mesh with his receivers and the new offense.
Denver has a very average offensive line, which could lead to Wilson taking more sacks than expected. Still, this offense should be leaps and bounds better than it was last season under Teddy Bridgewater and Drew Lock.
11. San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers have one of the toughest offenses to project as we still aren’t 100 percent sure who will be the starting quarterback will be come Week 1. But regardless of who is under center, San Francisco should be able to run the ball at will.
Look for Deebo Samuel and George Kittle to have monster years once again and for the 49ers to be a tough offense to stop. If Trey Lance can have success in 2022, there is a good chance this could be a top-5 offense.

10. Baltimore Ravens
During the 2019 season, the Ravens led the NFL in points per game with 33.2. In 2020, they ranked seventh with 29.3 points per game. And in the first nine games of the 2021 season, they averaged 25.6 points per game before Lamar Jackson went down with an injury.
Are teams catching up to Baltimore’s style of offense? Maybe. But this team was decimated by injuries last year.
If Jackson can stay healthy, they should finish inside the top 10 in points per game. And if they can find some help at receiver, they could easily be inside the top three once again.
Bet Tip: Ravens to Make 2022 NFL Playoffs (-130) at Caesars
The Ravens came within a game of making the playoffs last year and that was despite Tyler Huntley playing in seven games. As long as Jackson is healthy, this offense should be elite and they have the NFL’s best kicker in Justin Tucker. Baltimore will make the playoffs and has a good chance to be the No. 1 seed in the conference once again.

9. Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders addressed their most significant need this offseason by trading for All-Pro receiver Davante Adams. As a result, they now have one of the best groups of pass-catchers in the NFL with Adams, Darren Waller, and Hunter Renfrow.
The only question surrounding the Raiders is their offensive line. The hope is that Alex Leatherwood can step up in his second year, but the entire unit leaves a lot to be desired. If Las Vegas can shore up the o-line, there is no reason why this squad shouldn’t average 28+ points per game in 2022.
This offense had the second-most completions of 20+ yards last season. With Adams in tow, don’t be surprised if this is the most explosive and efficient passing offense in the league.
8. Cincinnati Bengals
The Bengals were one of the better offenses in the NFL last season, averaging 27.1 points per game. But it was the offensive line that ultimately cost them a chance at winning the Super Bowl.
The Bengals made significant upgrades to that unit this offseason, signing three veterans in free agency. Will that be enough to help get them inside the top-five offenses in the NFL? We’ll see.
7. Green Bay Packers
The Packers finished 10th in points per game last year despite having the NFL’s MVP in Aaron Rodgers and arguably the best receiver in the league in Davante Adams.
So what will they look like without Adams and with Rodgers being another year older? Green Bay will still be good, but don’t be shocked if they utilize a more run-heavy approach with Aaron Jones and A.J. Dillon.
6. Los Angeles Rams
The Rams’ offense was very good last season, but they weren’t quite elite. Los Angeles finished outside of the top seven in points per game and played too many games in which the offense stalled.
However, Matthew Stafford is entering his second year in Sean McVay‘s system, and he’ll have a new target to throw to in Allen Robinson. This team can score 35 points in any given week and has a superstar at receiver in Cooper Kupp.
The Rams will be just fine again in 2022.
5. Los Angeles Chargers
There were times last season when the Chargers looked unstoppable. However, there were other games where the offense struggled to maintain any semblance of consistency.
But with Justin Herbert entering just his third season and the team improving the offensive line, there is no reason why this unit can’t average 30 points per game.
4. Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys lost a lot of talent this offseason on offense, including Amari Cooper, La’el Collins, and Connor Williams. However, this was still the No. 1 offense in the NFL by a very significant margin in 2021.
Dak Prescott is now fully healthy and CeeDee Lamb is entering his third season. They might not average 31 points per game like they did last year, but expect Dallas to be among the best offenses again in 2022.
3. Kansas City Chiefs
Yes, there are some concerns about how the offense will function without Tyreek Hill, but the Chiefs still have one of the greatest offensive minds in the NFL calling plays in Andy Reid and the league’s best quarterback in Patrick Mahomes.
They’ll need some time to figure out who their best outside receivers are, but the Chiefs will be just fine. Don’t be surprised if they lead the league in points per game this season and rack up 7,000 yards of offense.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
You could easily put the Buccaneers at No. 1 as they have the GOAT at quarterback and tons of firepower around him. The only question surrounding the Buccaneers is can Leonard Fournette and Mike Evans stay healthy?
Otherwise, this offense should be a lock to score 30 or more points per game this season. Don’t be surprised if Tom Brady eclipses 5,000 passing yards once again in this high-powered offense.
Bet Tip: Tom Brady to Win NFL MVP (+900) at Caesars
Brady is the favorite to lead the NFL in passing yards (+700), but has the third-best odds to win NFL MVP. If he comes out of retirement and leads the league in passing while helping Tampa to another NFC South title, don’t be surprised if the 44-year-old picks up his fourth MVP award in 2022.

1. Buffalo Bills
The Bills are absolutely loaded on offense, with one of the best quarterbacks in the league in Josh Allen and weapons galore.
The only real question is how will the offense perform without Brian Daboll calling plays? Daboll was one of the best play-callers in the NFL over the last two seasons and always had defenses on their heels with their insane pass-run split.
Even if there is a bit of an adjustment under Ken Dorsey, this offense will be nearly impossible to stop in 2022.
