Arizona Cardinals: Week 2 Power Rankings

4 of 5

Where art thou passing game? Ameer Abdullah had an average of 7.1 yards per carry on Sunday, that’s ridiculous, but you still couldn’t stop Phillip Rivers and let him put up a 400 yard game, that can’t bode well for your defense in a division with Aaron Rodgers.. (0-1). Previous: 10th. Detroit Lions. 14. team. 50

44. The Falcons escaped the Week 1 matchup with the Eagles in much the same way the Cowboys escaped the Giants, the defeated team gave it away. The Eagles couldn’t find a man to defend the entire first half and then the Falcon’s passing game disappeared in the second half. The team can give the Saints (and Panthers) a run for the division, but maybe a .500 team will take this division.. (1-0). Previous: 15th. Atlanta Falcons. 13. team

59. Washington led by Kirk Cousins gave you a run for your money and you only beat them by a touchdown, not the best way to make a first impression, same to you Ndamukong Suh. (1-0). Previous: 11th. Miami Dolphins. 12. team

team. 16. Tyrod Taylor is turned lots of heads, including Tom Brady if the Westwood One broadcast was any indication prior to yesterday’s games. That defense is awesome, maybe Rex Ryan really can coach after all these years.. (1-0). Previous: 17th. Buffalo Bills. 11

45. That wasn’t pretty. All the offseason talk about Peyton Manning’s arm strength being gone seemed to come to a head. Call it offensive scheming, call it a good Ravens defense, call it what you will, but there has to be worries in Denver, not just for the QB but that C.J. Anderson wasn’t the focus of the offense like we were led to believe.. (1-0). Previous: 7th. Denver Broncos. 10. team

Previous: 13th. Kansas City Chiefs. 9. team. 124. Alex Smith does what Alex Smith does, throw to tight ends and let the running backs do their thing. Still no touchdown from a wide receiver, but when your TE can put up multiples every week, does it really matter?. (1-0)

Ugly, ugly play all around, this team went to the AFC Championship last year?. (0-1). Previous: 5th. Indianapolis Colts. 8. team. 46

It was going to be hard to take on the defending champions, in their house, with the emotional high they were riding from the offseason turmoil. The Steelers gave it a go, but came up short.. (1-0). Previous: 9th. Pittsburgh Steelers. 7. team. 55
