Your NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

Aaron Rodgers

Week 2 is in the books, so here are your NFL Power Rankings.

1. Green Bay Packers (2-0) – Through two games it’s the Pack and not the Saints that look like the most COMPLETE team in the league.

2. New Orleans Saints (2-0) – The champs’ offense sure doesn’t look the same as last year, but their D is playing so great, no one seems to notice.

3. Houston Texans (2-0) – Houston stole one from the Redskins, but they still looked great and got the win.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers (2-0) – Mike Tomlin’s defense will have to continue to perform like the “Steel Curtain” while they continue their quarterback shuffle until Big Ben returns.

5. Cincinnati Bengals (1-1) – Maybe the Bung, I mean Bengals, were still in a preseason mind state in the 1st half on the New England game in week 1. They have looked good ever since then.

6. Indianapolis Colts (1-1) – The Colts were clicking on all cylinders and got a good win Sunday night in the Manning Bowl.

7. New York Jets (1-1) – Prepare for an up and down season all year from Mark Sanchez. He will look great at times, and like a chicken with his head cut off at other times during the year.

8. Baltimore Ravens (1-1) – Flacco hasn’t looked that hot this season and that’s not good being that I believe his is the key to the Ravens Super Bowl chances this year.

9. New England Patriots (1-1) – The defense will kill them all season unless they all grow up fast.

10. Chicago Bears (2-0) – When Jay Cutler doesn’t turn the ball over his teams always win games.

11. Washington Redskins (1-1) – I’ll give the defense a pass this week since the NFL needs a shootout every once and a while. But continuous play like that will hurt any shot they have at the NFC East crown.

12. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) – Another solid performance from the defense has the surprising Chiefs atop the AFC West. A place they haven’t been in almost 6 years.

13. Miami Dolphins (2-0) – After a strong win against what I thought was a good Minnesota team, I’m willing to admit that the Dolphins will be a major problem for both the Jets and Patriots later in the season.

14. Tennessee Titans (1-1) – It seems as if Jeff Fisher just has to bench Vince Young annually for the hell of it.

15. San Diego Chargers (1-1) – They got the win and by a large margin, but with all the turnovers that took place, I’m not sold that they will be a factor in the conference this year.

16. Minnesota Vikings (0-2) – My NFC Super Bowl pick may have to be changed already with the way the offense and Brett Favre are looking.

17. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) – The league hasn’t seen a player like Mike Vick since he went to prison and now that he may be back full time, every team should be afraid.

18. Atlanta Falcons (1-1) – Atlanta looked good in a blow out of the Cardinals.

19. Dallas Cowboys (0-2) – A loss to Houston this week could destroy whatever chemistry the Cowboys had with all the hype they had heading into the season.

20. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0) – The Bucs are one win away from matching last season’s win total and its only week three.

21. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1) – The Jags got whacked out west, but it wasn’t surprising. They never seem to win a game on the west coast.

22. Denver Broncos (1-1) – Demaryius Thomas showed why I think he can be just as good as Brandon Marshall.

23. New York Giants (1-1) – The Giants may take a couple more beatings like that this season, but with the way the East is looking, the division still will be a close race to the finish.

24. Arizona Cardinals (1-1) – The Cardinals look like a 7-9 team at best and could still make the playoffs.

25. Seattle Seahawks (1-1) – Another one of the puzzling NFC West teams, but I wouldn’t be shocked by a win against San Diego on Sunday.

26. San Francisco 49ers (0-2) – Turnovers killed the 49ers Monday night, and a 0-3 start could hurt their playoff chances.

27. Detroit Lions (0-2) – They could and probably should be 2-0, but they’re the opposite which means this season will play out the usual way for the Lions.

28. Carolina Panthers (0-2) – This start was expected from Carolina with Matt Moore at quarterback.

29. Oakland Raiders (1-1) – Jason Campbell has gotten benched already. And he was supposed to turn around the Raiders’ offense?

30. Cleveland Browns (0-2) – The Brownies defense played tough, but their no name offense is what will have them stuck at the bottom on the rankings.

31. Buffalo Bills (0-2) – The Bills need a quarterback. When’s the last time they had a legitimate starting quarterback anyway?

32. St. Louis Rams (0-2) – The last three teams could all take the number 32 spot, this week I picked the Rams.
