NFL Power Rankings: Week 2

3 of 3

(13-19). Previous: 4th. Baltimore Ravens. 10. team. 26. The offense looked like a nightmare. Some of that was the Denver defense. Some of that was the Trestman offense. It really wasn’t a good combination for Baltimore. 

44. Dan Quinn’s influence on the defense was spectacular. Julio Jones dominated on offense.. (26-24). Previous: 20th. Atlanta Falcons. 9. team

Buffalo Bills. 8. team. 16. The Bills defense looks to be a major force under Rex. The offense did enough to keep the game out of reach. That’ll have to be the formula all season. . (27-14). Previous: 18th

7. team. 123. Dallas barely hung on to beat a mediocre Giants team. Losing Dez for the majority of the season is a tough break.  . (27-26). Previous: 3rd. Dallas Cowboys

(31-34). Previous: 1st. Seattle Seahawks. 6. team. 36. Seattle’s offensive line remains a disaster, and the defense played awfully. That is a combination that results in a loss to Rams.  

Previous: 12th. Cincinnati Bengals . 5. team. 56. When Andy Dalton doesn’t throw away games, the Bengals are tough to beat. Cincinnati got “good Andy Dalton” this week and thus got a dominant win.. (33-13)

team. 45. The defense dominated, but Peyton Manning looked nothing like Peyton Manning. This appears to be the end of the line for the future Hall of Famer. . (19-13). Previous: 9th. Denver Broncos. 4

(31-19). Previous: 8th. Arizona Cardinals. 3. team. 32. The Cardinals beat up on a mediocre Saints team. More injuries though means that the team’s depth will be tested this year. 

47. Outside of Gronk, the Patriots offense wasn’t nearly as explosive against a bad Steelers secondary as they should have been. The NE defense looked solid. . (28-21). Previous: 7th. New England Patriots. 2. team

Green Bay Packers. 1. team. 49. The Packers didn’t dominate a mediocre Chicago team even with Culter having a meltdown for the Bears. A win is a win, but questions remain all over for the Packers.. (31-23). Previous: 2nd

Next: Sea Hawkers booster clubs great for displaced fans
