SB Nation's Week 4 NFL Power Rankings were released Tuesday, and the Washington Redskins fell from No. 17 to 21 after Sunday's 34-31 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. The Redskins (1-2) allowed the Bengals (2-1) to score two fourth-quarter touchdowns to lose their second straight game.

Here's what NFL Editor Joel Thorman had to say about Washington after Week 3:

21. Washington Redskins (LW: 17, 1-2): First-ranked offense, 29th-ranked defense. Got a feeling we'll see numbers like a few more times in the RGIII era.

Overall, the Redskins were the worst ranked NFC East team, as the New York Giants are No. 5 while the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are slotted No. 10 and 14, respectively.

Meanwhile, Washington's Week 4 opponent, the Tampa Bay Buccanners, will enter as the 23rd-ranked team according to SB Nation.

The Redskins' SB Nation rankings were identical to FOX Sports' Brian Billick and, which also had Washington at No. 22.'s experts ranked the Redskins 21st.
