Week Three power rankings

Houston Texans v Denver Broncos Getty Images

1. Texans (five first-place votes):  Like the SI jinx and the Madden curse, being at the top of this poll has led to three losses (Packers, Patriots, 49ers) in three weeks.

2. Ravens:  The field goal was good.  The team is very good.

3. Falcons:  They still won’t be taken seriously until they win a game in January.  This year, they could win a game in February, too.

4. 49ers:  Randy Moss needs to change his trademark saying to “I play when they want me to play.”

5. Giants: Every team says “next man up.”  Few teams have the depth to pull it off.

6. Packers:  Whether it’s #OccupyLambeau or #CheeseheadRiot or something else, Packers fans will be galvanized by last night’s outcome.  And that’s the worst thing that could have happened for the NFL.

7. Cardinals:  The best defense in the NFL resides in the NFC West.  But not in the city where you thought it was.

8. Patriots:  The last time the Pats had a losing record, they won the Super Bowl.

9. Seahawks:  I put them a lot lower on my own ballot, since they actually lost last night’s game.

10. Cowboys:  Tony Romo felt like he’d been golfing on Sunday — and cold-cocked by a driver.

11. Steelers:  If this is how much the team passes with a run-based offense, we’d hate to see how many passing yards Roethlisberger would have if the offense were premised on the pass.

12. Bears:  Based on Jay Cutler’s passer rating this year, J’Marcus Webb should be the one doing the bumping.

13. Broncos:  Peyton Manning is very happy that Joe Mays plays for the Broncos.

14. Bengals:  Finally, the Bengals won a game they were supposed to lose.

15. Jets:  Rex Ryan’s demeanor on Monday sent a clear message:  “Just.  End.  The.  Season.”

16. Vikings:  It’s fitting that the franchise’s biggest upset since Randy Moss pretended to show his butt to the fans at Lambeau Field would entail the Vikings kicking the butt of Moss and his new teammates.

17. Eagles:  Arguably the worst 2-1 team in years, the Eagles could be on their way to 8-8 (at best) if they fall to 2-2 on Sunday night against the Giants.

18. Bills:  Not bad for a team that some thought would go winless after Week One.

19. Chargers:  Those 9,200 people who didn’t buy tickets knew what they were doing.

20. Raiders:  Not bad for a team that some thought would go winless after Week Two.

21. Titans:  Not bad for a team that some thought would go winless after Week Two.

22. Redskins:  Not good for a team that most thought would go to the playoffs after Week One.

23. Lions: Even the smartest coaches can do some really dumb things.

24. Buccaneers:  Crashing victory formation provides a nice diversion from a loss.

25. Panthers:  Looks like someone has decided to be an entertainer and an icon, and not the best football player he can be.

26. Rams:  The good news?  The Rams are improving.  The bad news?  So is the rest of the division.

27. Chiefs:  Winning in the Superdome suddenly lacks the sizzle it recently had.

28. Jaguars:  Blaine Gabbert went Gangnam Style on the Colts.

29. Colts:  Howe didd wee loooz?????  TRADE WINDZ BLOWING AGAIN!!!!  HOTTT!!!!

30. Saints:  Sean Payton is getting ready to ask for a raise.

31. Dolphins:  Block that kick!  But not when I call a timeout!

32. Browns:  Which comes first?  Formal approval of Jimmy Haslam’s purchase of the team or a win?

    Well deserved Viking jump. Packers should be about 17 though

  2. contra74 says: Sep 25, 2012 1:54 PM

    You have the Packers ranked too high. 8 sacks in the first half and you have them at #5!? Forget the ending…seriously, #5? With the ‘explosive’ offense?! LOL

  3. jhein23 says: Sep 25, 2012 1:55 PM

    Packers are HULK angry

  4. nytwelve says: Sep 25, 2012 1:56 PM

    Can you at least mention Seattle’s amazing defense last night aside from just saying “they lost”?

  5. lscore says: Sep 25, 2012 1:56 PM

    A 1-2 team at #6?!?!

    You must be outta your mind!!!

  6. ame123 says: Sep 25, 2012 1:56 PM

    Eagles are top 5 in offense and defense. Worst 2-1 in history? please. The problem is turnovers and ridiculous play-calling, things that have nothing to do with talent. Eagles are gonna spank the giants this week and all the pundits are going to crawl right back on the wagon.

  7. theuglitruth says: Sep 25, 2012 1:57 PM

    Even though they had a botched call go aganist them…the Packers allowed the game to get to a final play to determine the outcome. They were not dominate. I don’t think they should be ranked this high.

  8. kylexitron says: Sep 25, 2012 1:58 PM

    Really, Seattle “actually lost last night’s game”?

    Bad call at the end of the game but lets not overlook two bad calls that kept GB’s touchdown drive alive, a PI on third down that would have forced a punt, and a ball spot review on 4th and inches changed to a first down even though there is no concievable way there could have been “conclussive” evidence to actually change the spot.

    Seattle didn’t “lose” anything. The refs suck, both teams were gifted a TD. I’m already tired of hearing about the packers getting screwed just becuase of what happened on the last play, fact of the matter is the whole game was an officiating train wreck.

  9. chc4 says: Sep 25, 2012 1:58 PM

    Ravens 2? I don’t think so.

  10. succulentnipples says: Sep 25, 2012 1:58 PM

    Jets are too high.

  11. xstaticonradio says: Sep 25, 2012 1:59 PM

    A 1-2 team at #8? Give me a break. These rankings are awful

  12. crazycane says: Sep 25, 2012 2:00 PM

    I don’t think the Dolphins are as bad as you have them. But alas, this doesn’t mean anything.

  13. knackstermyea says: Sep 25, 2012 2:01 PM

    Texans! Finally some respect.

  14. bmorefalcon says: Sep 25, 2012 2:02 PM

    Your rankings near the top are much improved this week.

    I still say that the Saints are ranked to high at 30!

  15. torontofalcon says: Sep 25, 2012 2:03 PM

    Respect for the falcons I like. Personally I believe that Atl, Bal, Hou are the classes of the nfl this year. Niners are right behind them. I trust alex smith being down 5 with 1min left, but he doesnt have the magic to come back from double digit leads. In other words he has to have a lead or be down by a small margin to be effective. Same thing for the cards.

  16. zoxitic says: Sep 25, 2012 2:05 PM

    number 29 is freakin hilarious.

  17. torontofalcon says: Sep 25, 2012 2:05 PM

    Also no disrespect to packer fans you guys are 2-1 but the offense looks way out of sync. Luckily that can be fixed

  18. logicalthinkersays says: Sep 25, 2012 2:06 PM

    After WK3, I think it goes..
    1. Redskins
    2. Texans
    3. Falcons
    4. Cardinals
    5. Steelers

  21. vicktator says: Sep 25, 2012 2:09 PM

    Eagles beat the team that you have ranked second… and they are the “worst 2-1 team in years?” that doesn’t even make sense you idiot.

  22. mrconnors says: Sep 25, 2012 2:09 PM

    Yeah, the Ravens are soo good that needed two bogus penalties to keep two TD scoring drives alive.

    And the FG wasn’t good.

  23. larryfitzgerald4mvp says: Sep 25, 2012 2:10 PM

    As a biased Cards fan, i feel like they could be a few spots higher.

    Regardless, it’s nice to see them in the top 10, they’ve overperformed my expectations greatly,

  24. sixjak says: Sep 25, 2012 2:10 PM

    Thank you for not ranking SEA over GB. As a SF fan I think the 4th place ranking is a tad generous. I hope they prove you right I’ve the next 2 weeks. Thanks.

  25. southpaw2k says: Sep 25, 2012 2:14 PM

    Wow, I’m really surprised you don’t have the Falcons at #2. And as good as the Ravens offense has looked after three weeks, the defense could, ironically, be the team’s Achilles heel down the stretch. Surrendering that many yards and points can be costly to the wrong team come playoffs. Hopefully Suggs can come back before season’s end and shore up the pass rush.

  26. supaman50 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:14 PM

    The Dolphins hate continues …. They are next to last and the Jets are 15th? Does anyone at PFT actually watch the games?

  27. daroc88 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:14 PM

    Do I need to get my head checked or is the Patriots write-up a little ummm wrong?

  28. classactcalvin81 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:15 PM

    For some reason I still don’t view the Texans as a SB contender I guess time will tell..Bmore looks rough for sure!! Had that stadium rockin on Sunday nite.!.!.!

  29. djaehne says: Sep 25, 2012 2:18 PM

    Texans!!!!

  30. slk018 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:20 PM

    So the Dolphins are 11 spots below a team they beat by 3 touchdowns?
    And 16 spots below a team they dominated and lost due to a missed fg in OT??

  31. kcbaby58 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:21 PM

    How can you have raiders over the chiefs?? Next Sunday, they are in a tie for first in division. Raiders up that high, joke.

  32. allnightdwight says: Sep 25, 2012 2:21 PM

    The Seahawks actually won last night’s game. You can tell by comparing the numbers in the final score.

  33. blacknole08 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:21 PM

    Falcons are the best team in the NFL right now. Matt Ryan is playing like the MVP. The defense is playing great and they have yet to trail in any game this season.

    Meanwhile, the Texans have played a soft schedule so far against a rookie, a second year player in a new offense, and a 4-time MVP coming off neck surgery. They also didn’t completely dominate those games, and allowed the Broncos to almost come back. This Sunday they play another young QB in his first year as a starter making his 4th start.

  34. all4patriots says: Sep 25, 2012 2:22 PM

    He means that the last time the Patriots ever had a losing record (0-1 after the opening loss to Buffalo in 2003) , they ended up winning the title.

  35. flash1283 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:23 PM

    And here come all the crybabies, “my team is too low”, “but we beat that team and they are ranked higher”, “east coast bias”…….

    Get over it, they are meaningless!!

  36. jpiro says: Sep 25, 2012 2:24 PM

    Jamarcus Webb is the main reason for Cutler’s passer rating. And based on his lack of aggressiveness on the OL, I’d say he’s not likely to intentionally bump anyone.

  37. footballfan71 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:25 PM

    I wonder, if the roles were reversed and the Packers got the call for a TD over the Seahawks, would there be this much uproar? I doubt it.

    I think because it is the Seahawks and no one expects to win or the hatred of Carrol, this is a horrible thing. Even though the NFL made the call, not the Seahawks. Feels hypocritical to me. The Packers offense lost this game against a better defense.

  38. manderson367 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:27 PM

    Cardinals at 7? 3-0, beaten two other teams in the top 10, but behind a 1-2 team? Good! They are thriving off the disrespect.

  39. theashleyguy says: Sep 25, 2012 2:30 PM

    Seahawks sack Rodgers 8 times in one half; have a top 3 defense; have the third best rushing attack. Yeah, they got a bad call lucky break last night but let’s face it–they are legit. Steve Young said that one of the shames of last night’s final call was that nobody would be talking about the outstanding defensive effort that the Seahawks put in. He’s right. They could be a couple spots higher.

  40. stoogy says: Sep 25, 2012 2:31 PM

    the raiders should ahead of the steelers. same record and the raiders beat them! now im not saying the raiders should be ninth, but the steelers lost to two teams that are 1-2 they should be in the mid 20’s. they are not good.

    ————————————————-

    Sorry, but the Texans DID dominate both the first two games and had a 20 point lead going into the 4th quarter against the Broncos and if not for a bad PI call and a lucky bounce would have won by a lot more. The Falcons played the same team and almost lost, so you could say they’re equal but I’d still give the Texans the edge based on their overall team and nothing else.

  42. azcardsfan says: Sep 25, 2012 2:43 PM

    I agree that it is nice to see the cards in the top ten. However, I think they deserve to be in the top 5.

  43. Kreedos says: Sep 25, 2012 2:46 PM

    Cardinals are a top five team right now. Not sure how you have a team you deem “The NFL’s top ranked Defense” at number 7?

    Defense wins championships!

  44. cow395 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:51 PM

    lol Cowboys way to high, did they watch thier game on sunday?

  45. chief0727 says: Sep 25, 2012 2:53 PM

    I strongly disagree with my beloved Browns being ranked so high ! I’m suggesting a special ranking of 35 or 36

  46. blockedshotnyr says: Sep 25, 2012 2:55 PM

    17. Eagles: Arguably the worst 2-1 team in years, the Eagles could be on their way to 8-8 (at best) if they fall to 2-2 on Sunday night against the Giants.

    Now this statement doesn’t even make sense considering a number of factors:

    1. They ranked higher than two other 2-1 teams – San Diego and Buffalo – thereby making them better than two other 2-1 teams in THIS YEAR according to your rankings.

    2. They defeated the Ravens, who are #2 in the rankings with the same record, and their loss was to #7 team in the rankings on the road.

    3. Statistically speaking – they are top 5 in offense and defense and have been at the center of their own undoing – if they can minimize mistakes, you could argue they are one of the more complete teams in the NFL.

    Granted, getting turnover problems and mental mistakes under control is easier said than done. It is much more correctable though then a deficiency in talent.

  47. imodan says: Sep 25, 2012 2:56 PM

    I have seen two different angles that clearly show that the Ravens field goal attempt went wide right. It was NOT good! That being said no matter who lost that game was gonna bitch and whoever won had to feel dirty. This is your 2012 NFL people.

  48. inthearex says: Sep 25, 2012 2:56 PM

    All in due time

  51. kleppnasty says: Sep 25, 2012 3:00 PM

    The teams that beat the saints have beaten no one else. The Saints are the worst team in football period.

  52. robertocfg says: Sep 25, 2012 3:04 PM

    “8. Patriots: The last time the Pats had a losing season, they won the Super Bowl.”

    If you consier 14-2 a losing season, then yes. But yeah, the 2003 Patriots had a losing record at one point: 0-1 thanks to a loss @ Buffalo on the season opener.

    ————————————————

    The last time a Super Bowl-winning team relied so heavily on its defense to win a title was the 2005 Steelers. Every team who has won since has had a star quarterback to lead its team to the promised land.

    The notion that defense wins titles is a myth.

  54. miamatt says: Sep 25, 2012 3:10 PM

    I understand that the Jets went to 2-1 with a win in Miami, but how on earth can you have them 16 spots ahead of the Dolphins???

    Dolphins are in for a rough year, but they have a defense that will keep them in games and an offense that will gash teams who can’t stop the run.

    In any case, the Jets are, if anything, a SMIDGE better than Miami. They probably ought be about 24-25 back to back.

    And don’t even get me started on Raiders, Rams, Titans, Saints, Chiefs… I mean sheesh. Plus the Pack is too high. Sorry, but if you look at what they have done THIS year, game-robbing call or no, they really don’t look a whole lot better than Miami. Seriously.

  55. cardsgohard says: Sep 25, 2012 3:12 PM

    I love it! Cards don’t want any respect we’ve done fine without it. The fact of the matter is in two weeks you’ll have us Top 3 and we want nothing to do with it!

  56. chrisvegas says: Sep 25, 2012 3:38 PM

    I wonder where the Eagles will be next week when they beat the Gaints as they have owned NY the last couple of years.

  57. hehateme2 says: Sep 25, 2012 3:38 PM

    what a joke! jets @ 15??? Have you watched them play this year? pfft.

  58. jagsfanugh says: Sep 25, 2012 3:40 PM

    You have the Jags ranked to high. Without that lucky throw and catch Gabbert would have had a whole 75 yards passing.

  59. chrisvegas says: Sep 25, 2012 3:41 PM

    Andy Reid teams are always bad the first half of the season. They are 2-1. Once Andy Reid starts running the ball they will be hard to beat because they won’t be turning the ball over so much.

  60. rugdog100 says: Sep 25, 2012 3:42 PM

    Packers, Packers, Packers.

    When Drew Pearson shoved Nate Wright 5 yds through the air in the 1975 NFC Championship Game (Hail Mary Pass), everybody made the Cowboys out to be heros. So why not Seattle again last night?

    Johnny Unitas was doing the TV color commentary and he said, “Vikings fans, that’s the way it goes”. So Packer fans… well, you know the rest.

  61. rxv5854 says: Sep 25, 2012 3:47 PM

    What idiot thought the Bills would go winless?

  62. ahostiletakeover says: Sep 25, 2012 3:49 PM

    I’m a Ravens fan but Atlanta and Baltimore should be flip-flopped, both offenses have been excellent but the Falcons d has been just as good if not better at times than my vaunted Ravens’ defense through 3 weeks, plus they’re actually 3-0. I’d flip flop Arizona and Green Bay as well. While Green Bayput together a pretty good defensive effort last night, the Cards defense is a legitimate top 5 unit and have showed it in every game.

    As for all of the crybabies still mad about the Ravens – Pats game, here are some FACTS for you. If the ball crosses directly over the upright, the FG is considered good, period. The Patriots had 10 accepted penalties for 83 yds but also received EIGHT first downs via Raven penalty. The Ravens had 14 accepted penalties for almost 130-some yards but only received FIVE first downs via Patriot penalty. Cry all you want about the refs “giving the game to Baltimore I’ll just continue laughing at your ignorant opinion every time I see the penalties clearly skewed in the Patriots’ favor. All the Patriots had to do was get a first down and milk the clock but they failed on 3rd and 8, and the Ravens offensively and defensively stepped up when absolutely neccessary.

  63. swagger52 says: Sep 25, 2012 3:50 PM

    Matt Ryan couldn’t last half a season in the AFC North. Falcons play in a division that thinks that Tampa Bay is not a Pretender.

  64. themackstrong says: Sep 25, 2012 3:51 PM

    Everyone talking about the last call and not the D that shut out the Packer in the first half and hit him with 8 sacks. Browner,Sherman, Thomas and Big Kam are no joke, Rogers held onto the ball forever to take sacks because nobody was open.

    Green Bay wouldn’t have even scored the touchdown if the PI wasn’t called on Chancellor on the 47 yard line on 3rd down. One thing I know is this Bevelle offense and Russell Wilson need to start making consistent plays when the box is stacked against Lynch every down. Pete Carroll keep Sweezy on the bench until he learns pass protection.

  65. Kreedos says: Sep 25, 2012 3:53 PM

    Back to the Cards, ESPN got it right with their ranking #5 is a solid ranking for a team thats whipped up on 3 quality teams …say what you want about Philly, but they will smash some teams this season. AZ’s D is just that elite.

    The last few teams to win the Super Bowl had punishing defenses that carried them through the playoffs.

    ame123 says:

    “Eagles are top 5 in offense and defense. Worst 2-1 in history? please.”
    ————————————————-
    Hey Homer, take off the glasses! Philly is currently tied for the NFL’s worst offense at 15.7 ppg. Meanwhile the defense is 13th at 22 ppg….. not to mention your QB is the 4th worst rated passer who throws 2 picks per every 1 TD.

  67. riverhorsey says: Sep 25, 2012 4:05 PM

    Biggest jokes of the bunch are Seahawks at 9, Vikings at 16 and Jets 15. all are way to high.

    Eagles, Bills, Chargers and Lions should all be ahead of them.

  68. dvdman123 says: Sep 25, 2012 4:06 PM

    I guess when the Packers lose next week they’ll move up to No. 3 and the Saints will drop to 32. You gotta love these rankings.

  69. jher0407 says: Sep 25, 2012 4:06 PM

    Packers score 12pts and are ranked this high, this is a power ranking not homer ranking these guys need to come out of Rodgers ass and accept he’s no where near where he was last year

    ” The last time the Pats had a losing season, they won the Super Bowl.”

    You must mean losing record, otherwise that statement doesn’t makes much sense.

  72. wludford says: Sep 25, 2012 4:17 PM

    1-2 Packers should not be in the top 10, bad call or not. That was not a top 10 team in Seattle.

    Anyway, I think its clear who the top 5 or so teams are, and which 5 or so teams are the worst, but the rest of the teams in the middle, there is really no basis for ranking them.

    A better system of ranking might be A-D grading system, where ‘A’ teams are considered playoff teams, ‘B’ teams are on the bubble, ‘C’ teams are also rans, and ‘D’ teams are looking to next year’s draft. 8 teams in each group.

  73. pettytom says: Sep 25, 2012 4:35 PM

    As a Saints fan we should be 32 until our D decides to actually want to stop an opposing offense. It’s looking like losing Carl Nicks/Robert Meachem (as much as I hated him)/Tracy Porter is turning out to be a big deal. O-line play is horrible, receivers can’t get open, and DB’s can’t cover but I guess it doesn’t help that the D-line can’t rush the passer. It’s starting to look like that 2nd round pick Goodell took for next years draft will be huge.

    Inthearex:

    The falcons and eagles are the biggest frauds in the nfl.

    ————————————————–

    I could absolutely see why you would say that about the Falcons.

    -They are only averaging 33 points per game
    -They have only played teams with that were undefeated
    -They have not trailed in a game this season
    -They have forced 10 takeaways in 3 games

    You are right. Total frauds…..Idiot.

  76. 13fitzj says: Sep 25, 2012 5:08 PM

    As a Jets fan, they’re too high. That said, if you feel that they should be at 15 (the upper half of the league, mind you) then how is it that the only thing you have to say about them is negative?

  77. Mr. Wright 212 says: Sep 25, 2012 5:18 PM

    Ravens and 49ers have no business being ahead of the Giants.

    I ranked the Falcons #1 since they won on the road against an undefeated Chargers team. The Texans have benefited from a softer schedule (opponents a combined 3-6) so far. Not their fault and they have taken care of business but just sayin’.

    Don’t understand why Giants keep getting ranked ahead of Dallas who beat them week 1 in NY. The Giants barely came from behind to beat the Bucs and then beat a weak Panthers team. They have major issues in the secondary. Based on 2011 I suppose.

    This ranking must have been done by replacement sports writers.

    OK, Steelers Fan here and wholeheartedly agree with their #11 ranking. That being said – no way on God’s green Earth should the Packers be ranked #6. For a supposedly elite QB in Rodgers they only put 12 points on the board – at least the Steelers put the points up on the board.

    If the Chiefs beat the Boltless ones on Sunday – how high will you bump them up?

    Browns are too high.

    “Eagles are top 5 in offense and defense. Worst 2-1 in history? please.” ————————————————-Hey Homer, take off the glasses! Philly is currently tied for the NFL’s worst offense at 15.7 ppg. Meanwhile the defense is 13th at 22 ppg….. not to mention your QB is the 4th worst rated passer who throws 2 picks per every 1 TD

    Hate to burst your bubble pal but the official NFL offensive and defensive rankings are done according to yards per game, not points per game, which I’ve never understood because at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is the scoreboard.

    Same idiot, different name. LOL. It’s what happens after a few weeks of game tape. ROY will be awarded someplace else. I fixed your power poll.

    1. RG3
    2. Redskins
    3. Justin Beiber
    4. My Pretty Pony

    Also I’d like to point out something about SEA vs GB.

    The officiating was bad for both teams. You can’t just say they lost because of one call, because there were plenty of missed calls against the Packers as well that could have taken away their touchdown. Particularly on 3rd downs with Sam Shields. That kid is getting away with so much.

    On another note, the rookie GB defenders look REALLY good. GB should still win the division this year, but they’ll be amazing 2-3 years down the road. I predict them going undefeated in one of the next 5 seasons.

    Those of you crying about the Eagles comment, consider their two victories. Both were by one point, both were late comebacks, and both had obvious plays at the end that would changed the result. First one it was an easy dropped interception, and the second one was the non-called intentional grounding on Vick while the refs sorted out if he fumbled or not. (He didn’t, but he did throw it away to avoid the sack.) Now, what do both those things have in common? Hmm, I wonder…

    Philadelphia could, and maybe should, be 0-3. Enjoy the winning record while it lasts.

    3 teams in the top ten…

    does that mean the NFC west is the best division in football?

  88. tpa43 says: Sep 26, 2012 6:15 PM

    Bucs are a little high, but thanks anyways!

  89. bubba9er says: Sep 27, 2012 3:34 PM

    Bad loss for the 49ers. NFC West doesn’t look so wimpy this year though, does it? What other division has 3 teams in the top 10?

    Nfc west looks pretty solid, …even the rams have been in every game this year, …Niners will thump the jets.
