NFL Power Rankings: Week Three


Week Three is upon us.  Some teams at 2-0 are surprising, such as Kansas City and Tampa Bay.  Some surprising 0-2 teams include Minnesota and Dallas.  What will this week bring us?

The No Chance To Win Division:

32. Buffalo Bills (0-2) – Ryan Fitzpatrick already taking over.  Bad times in Buffalope.

31. Cleveland Browns (0-2)- You lost to Kansas City, at home.  Thanks for coming out Cleveland.

30. St. Louis Rams (0-2) – Sam Bradford will be special.  The rest of the team, not so much.

29. Oakland Raiders (1-1) – So much for the Jason Campbell experiment

28. Carolina Panthers (0-2) – Matt Moore was awful in throwing 3 end zone INT’s against the Bucs.  Enter Jimmy Clausen.  Ouch.

The 2-0 We Didn’t See This Coming Division:

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0) – You beat Cleveland and Carolina.  Congrats.  Meet the Pittsburgh Steelers.

26. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0) – Nice win against the Chargers but you struggled against the Browns.

The 0-2 We Didn’t See This Coming Division:

25. Minnesota Vikings (0-2) – Sorry, it’s all about the now and the now says the defense is good.  Offense pitiful.

24. Dallas Cowboys (0-2) – Wade Phillips isn’t sleeping.  I am sleeping just fine knowing the ‘Chips are 0-2.

23. San Francisco 49ers (0-2) – Nice effort on Monday night.  They are killing themselves with mistakes.

The Doing Just as Expected Division:

22. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1) – Home opener win.  Check.  Week 2 road blowout loss.  Check.

21. Tennessee Titans (1-1) – Seven turnovers against Pittsburgh.  Even Kerry Collins couldn’t save you.

20. Denver Broncos (1-1) – R.I.P Kenny McKinley.

19. Cincinnati Bengals (1-1) – You get the feeling this offense is just waiting to breakout.

18. Seattle Seahawks (1-1) – Good win at home all lost with poor loss in Denver.  Still tied for 1st place in NFC West.

17. Arizona Cardinals (1-1) – I still think they are better than this.  Ugly showing in Atlanta.

16. New York Giants (1-1) -   Need an autograph?  No problem, Brandon Jacobs has a helmet for you he’ll sign.

15. New York Jets (1-1) – Week 2 whole lot better.  Now they need consistency.

14. Detroit Lions (0-2) – Ok, so I placed them here as a “moral” ranking.  Jahvid Best may be Rookie of the Year.

13. Washington Redskins (1-1) – Should be 2-0.  McNabb looks in rare form.

12. New England Patriots (1-1) – As Tom Brady put it  “we just sucked” (against the Jets)

The Pretenders:

11. San Diego Chargers (1-1) – Ryan Mathews had better start performing.  He’s making LT missed.

10. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1) – Until they get a real quarterback…..until then, how about that defense?

9. Atlanta Falcons (1-1) – Manhandled the Cardinals.  Jason Snelling, welcome to the NFL.

8. Baltimore Ravens (1-1) – Tough loss in Cincy.  They need Joe Flacco to get on track.

The Contenders:

7. Philadelphia Eagles (1-1) – Welcome back Michael Vick

6. Miami Dolphins (2-0) – They have a real chance to take hold of the division against the Jets this Sunday night.

The Top Five:

5. Chicago Bears (2-0) – Jay Cutler still has a lot to prove to me, but winning in Dallas was a good start.

4. Indianapolis Colts (1-1) – Much better week.  The real Colts showed up this week against the Giants.

3. Houston Texans (2-0) – Very nice comeback on Sunday.  Can’t dig themselves out of a second half 17 point deficit every week.

2. New Orleans Saints (2-0) – Just wait till the offense really gets going.  Loss of Reggie Bush hurts a little.

1. Green Bay Packers (2-0) – I will stop short of calling them flawless, but they about as close as it gets.
