Arizona Cardinals: Week 3 Power Rankings

1 of 6

Two weeks in the books, some separation is becoming apparent

The injury bug rears its ugly head again with starting quarterbacks falling down like they’re drunk on a boat. Luckily there are some bright lights shining as the water and fat begin to separate as the season progresses.

Week 2 had some serious surprises. St. Louis beat the defending NFC Champions, then fall flat on their face against the lowly Redskins. The Ravens start the season 0-2 for the first time under John Harbaugh and the Seahawks start 0-2 for only the second time under Pete Carroll. We’ve seen Drew Brees, Jay Cutler and Tony Romo go down with injuries, some of them serious. Can teams recover with backups or will the Matt Cassel’s of the world thrive?

57. That was ugly, not the 170 yards in penalties, or letting the Cardinals special teams and Larry Fitzgerald walk all over them, that Matt Forte barely touched the ball and Jimmy Clausen is the absolute best you can find as your backup QB?.. (0-2). Previous: 27th. Chicago Bears. 32. team

(1-1). Previous: 31st. Oakland Raiders. 30. team. 28. A week re moved from being called a “mess” right here on this page, the Raiders and Derek Carr put together a powerhouse game and show up the now 0-2 Ravens. Impressive.

52. Fun fact: Blake Bortles has been sacked in every NFL game he’s played in, except this past weekend against Miami. Kudos to Bortles, the pass protection or shame on Miami?. (1-1). Previous: 30th. Jacksonville Jaguars. 29. team

It’s going to be a long, inept season for the Texans if they can’t find someone to throw the ball.. (0-2). Previous: 26th. Houston Texans. 28. team. 10
