A lot of movement this week in the Raising Zona NFL Power Rankings.  What a week it was.  Your Arizona Cardinals got a big win in New York and move up to number seven.  The Seattle Seahawks showed they can be beaten.  The Denver Broncos almost blew another one at home only to hold on at the end.  The San Francisco 49ers lose home opener at Levi’s Stadium and the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders are who we thought they were.

With the Seahawks loss we have a new leader at the top of the rankings for this week.  There are seven undefeated teams remaining in the NFL.  Teams that start 2-0 make the playoffs 63 percent of the time.  There are seven 0-2 teams.  Before this weekend, only one of the previous 60 teams to start 0-2 made the playoffs.  The Buffalo Bills are probably the most surprising 2-0 team and the New Orleans Saints are probably the most surprising 0-2.
