Week Two Power Rankings

Peyton Getty Images

1.  Broncos (2-0; last week No. 1):  They’ve outscored the last two Super Bowl champs 90-50 to start the season.

2.  Seahawks (2-0; No. 4):  They’ve outscored the 49ers 71-16 in their last two meetings.

3.  Texans (2-0; No. 3):  DeAndre Hopkins thinks he can be better a better receiver than Andre Johnson.  Ultimately, they need a better quarterback than Matt Schaub.

4.  49ers (1-1; No. 2):  Maybe Colin Kaepernick will simply tattoo an eyebrow where that eyebrow was.

5.  Packers (1-1; No. 6):  If the Redskins had given the Packers a better game, Aaron Rodgers may have set the single-game passing yardage record.

6.  Ravens (1-1; No. 7):  So far, watching the Ravens play this year has been only slightly less painful than the childbirth quarterback Joe Flacco missed on Sunday.

7.  Saints (2-0; No. 8):  This year, the Saints already are one miracle closer to making their nickname legitimate.

8.  Patriots (2-0; No. 9):  “I took a huge pay cut and all I got was this crappy T-shirt.  And a bunch of crappy receivers.”

9.  Falcons (1-1; No. 10):  Even Chip Kelly says, “Wow, they have a hard time holding a lead.”

10.  Bears (2-0; No. 12):  Ugly, come-from-behind wins are better than ugly, come-from-behind losses.

11.  Bengals (1-1; No. 13):  The Bengals have the young running back the Steelers need.  Plus a lot more.

12.  Dolphins (2-0; No. 22):  Maybe the ’72 Dolphins eventually will have to worry about the ’13 Dolphins.

13.  Chiefs (2-0; No. 19):  Two wins all of last year.  Two wins so far this year, with 14 chances to get more.

14.  Chargers (1-1; No. 24):  Eddie Royal quickly has become what Robert Meachem was supposed to be.

15.  Eagles (1-1; No. 5):  So when do all the people in Philly who wanted Andy Reid to be fired start complaining about the fact that he was?

16.  Cowboys (1-1; No. 14):  In Week Two, Tony Romo performed exactly like Peyton Manning.  In the playoffs.

17.  Cardinals (1-1; No. 21):  What a difference a real quarterback makes.

18.  Lions (1-1; No. 11):  What a difference a little discipline would make.

19.  Colts (1-1; No. 15):  Jim Irsay demands more points.  And a pony.

20.  Rams (1-1; No. 17):  For the Rams to become a great team, they can’t fall behind by 21 on the road.

21.  Raiders (1-1; No. 26):  If the Raiders had trusted Pryor earlier, they wouldn’t have had to give up all those draft picks for a quarterback who currently plays in Arizona.

22.  Giants (0-2; No. 16):  The last time the Giants started 0-2, they won the Super Bowl.  That’s where the similarities between recent 0-2 Giants teams ends.

23.  Titans (1-1; No. 23):  Mike Munchak would have secured lifetime job security if the Titans had beaten the Texans in Houston.  At least for Bud Adams’ lifetime.

24.  Bills (1-1; No. 25):  After years of toiling, the Bills could quickly benefit from some Manuel labor.  (Does acknowledging that one is a little cheesy make it any better?  I didn’t think so.)

25.  Vikings (0-2; No. 18):  With 54 points scored in two losses, maybe the passing game isn’t the problem.

26.  Redskins (0-2; No. 20):  Robert Griffin III should be benched only if he’s playing defense.

27.  Panthers (0-2; No. 27):  Cam Newton in in the process of trading that supposedly fake smile for a real frown.

28.  Jets (1-1; No. 28):  An opportunity lost is still a loss, Dog.

29.  Steelers (0-2; No. 29):  The Steelers are becoming irrelevant for the first time since the Pirates weren’t.

30.  Browns (0-2; No. 30):  The Factory of Sadness already is working overtime.

31.  Buccaneers (0-2; No. 31):  Josh Freeman missed this year’s team photo.  Greg Schiano could miss next year’s.

32.  Jaguars (0-2; No. 32):  The Jaguars shouldn’t reconsider their position on Tim Tebow.  He has already made it clear that he only wants to play for an NFL team.

    The Steelers are too high.

  2. logicalvoicesays says: Sep 17, 2013 9:55 AM

    People with 0 Football knowledge celebrate wins and their positions in the rankings in September. Sensible fans like myself know better. The supposed # 26 team isn’t even trying right now because the season is a marathon. We’re pacing ourselves and BAM before you know it, leading the division and conference with ease. Remember my words when RGIII is hoisting Lombardi #4 in the middle of the field of Metlife Stadium in February 2014. #DontbelievemejustWatch

  3. bosfaninva says: Sep 17, 2013 9:55 AM

    The Texans are the softest #3 in history.

  4. truninerfan49 says: Sep 17, 2013 9:56 AM

    If the Jags really want to secure the #1 pick and get Bridgewater, signing Tebow makes sense.

  5. azarkhan says: Sep 17, 2013 9:57 AM

    I’d have the Seahawks at #1, followed by the 49ers, Packers, and Broncos. I’d drop the Patriots and Ravens to 12-13.

    If the Seahawks were to win the Superbowl, Florio would still vote them second or worse.

    Nothing to see here folks, wait till the middle of the season for Power Rankings to really mean anything.

  8. frankgarrett says: Sep 17, 2013 9:58 AM

    Vikings will be lucky if they even get 5 wins this year , SKOL LOL

  9. joetoronto says: Sep 17, 2013 10:01 AM

    “The Jaguars shouldn’t reconsider their position on Tim Tebow. He has already made it clear that he only wants to play for an NFL team.”

    Ouch!

  10. jazsrt says: Sep 17, 2013 10:01 AM

    Much better than last week.

    The top 10 is fairly accurate…with the exception of the Texans…still not sold on them.

  11. bigz54 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:03 AM

    Jags please report to the nurses office for burn cream.

  12. baddegg says: Sep 17, 2013 10:03 AM

    Redskins being ranked any higher than 32 is basically a gift. And I’m a Redskins fan!

    I’ll give you that they are better than the Jags and Bucs. Not sure that they are better than the Panthers and Jets — who have at least fought hard in defeat.

    Of course, if they pull off a victory this weekend, I’ll be lobbying for Top 10. LOL, kidding.

    Other than that, not much debate about # 1 and # 2, though you could probably swap those either way. That would be one heck of a super bowl.

  13. themagicman1223 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:04 AM

    Those Broncos sure are fun to watch, Seattle’s D is for real.

  14. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Sep 17, 2013 10:04 AM

    So maybe Eagles at 5 last week was a little high?

  15. zubazman says: Sep 17, 2013 10:05 AM

    Eagles fans wishing Andy Reid was still our coach???????? NEVER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. Rick Spielman is a Magician says: Sep 17, 2013 10:05 AM

    The Vikings’ next three opponents are ranked below them. I would be happy about that if these rankings weren’t historically so far off.

  17. revischrist16 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:06 AM

    There are terrible rankings

  18. thetruthcampaign says: Sep 17, 2013 10:06 AM

    Lions losing 7 spots due to penalties sounds about right.

  19. clayminator says: Sep 17, 2013 10:06 AM

    Niners are NOT behind the Texans…no way, no how!

    Bengals showed me something last night…they are a top 10 team

    Vikings are the best 0-2 team

    Bears are the worst 2-0 team

    Chiefs will upset the Donkeys and win the West

    otherwise…pretty good.

  20. charmcityalum says: Sep 17, 2013 10:06 AM

    I’m a Ravens fan and appreciate the love but #6 is too high. They may get better as the season goes on but with all the new players the team isn’t very consistent. Probably should be ranked somewhere around 10-12 in my humble opinion.

  21. myawornicky says: Sep 17, 2013 10:07 AM

    Ponder shouldn’t be allowed to throw the ball, his only task should be to hand the ball off to AP.

  22. mattsffrd says: Sep 17, 2013 10:07 AM

    Ravens WAY WAY WAY too high.

  23. classyjacklambert says: Sep 17, 2013 10:07 AM

    You should switch the ravens and bengals. Ravens just eked by the hapless browns and got pounded in their first game while the bengals are actually looking like a solid team so far.

  24. mrbigass says: Sep 17, 2013 10:09 AM

    Texans fan and I think it’s way too high……..

  26. jhein23 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:10 AM

    Cobb doesn’t narrowly step out of bounds and James Jones doesn’t drop the ball on the pylon and the Packers have 49 pts. And than take into consideration they didn’t even try hard to score the last 20 minutes of the game…… How you can watch Brady on Thurs night and Kaep on Sunday night and even compare them to Rodgers is mind boggling to me. And they have much better offensive lines and ground games.

  27. jaxasc84 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:11 AM

    The Jaguars shouldn’t reconsider their position on Tim Tebow. He has made it clear he can’t play for an NFL team.

  28. realitycheckbaby says: Sep 17, 2013 10:11 AM

    Steelers in a fight for the #1 pick.

    Redskins are done – let’s face it RGIIIIIIII WAS a running back who could throw. Now he’s a QB who can’t throw or run.

  29. tformation says: Sep 17, 2013 10:11 AM

    For once, I can’t argue with where you’ve place the Bears on this list.

    LOL, on the Bucs Schiano comment. I think you’ve hit the nail on the head there…

  30. thetruthcampaign says: Sep 17, 2013 10:11 AM

    I agree. I don’t see the Seahawks beating Peyton Manning. It’s one thing to beat Caperneck and Cam, but another to beat a good QB.

  31. rundmc81 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:11 AM

    Raiders at 21? Mannnn you’re crazy. Im a fan and I know that is about 8 spots too hight. You will have them back in the gutter after Monday Night Footbal.

  32. mrgdawg says: Sep 17, 2013 10:12 AM

    Ravens are too high. They’ll be lucky to win 8 games.

  33. bdl08 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:12 AM

    The TEXANS are my team, and I think we’re too high. 2 come from behind victories over 2 mediocre teams … smh … The homers are gonna die once we play a playoff team.

  34. wearethesteelers says: Sep 17, 2013 10:13 AM

    How are we irrelevant? We always start off slow. We don’t get blown out, we always put up a fight. Our offense will start gelling and everyone will be eating crow.

    6 rings

  35. crieger0 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:14 AM

    Patriots at 8 and Ravens at 6 is just absurd

  36. beastmode5150 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:16 AM

    The Seahawks can’t wait to add their two best pass rushers and second best corner who haven’t even played a down yet. Oh and some guy named Harvin for the second half of the season.

  37. dvdman123 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:17 AM

    Texans and Ravens are ranked too high and Dolphins too low in my opinion.

  38. honkeyt says: Sep 17, 2013 10:18 AM

    When the Raiders shock the Broncos I wonder if they will be top 10 next week?

  39. bcmcknight77 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:19 AM

    THREE 10 spot swings? What, do you just throw darts every week?

  40. eaglesw00t says: Sep 17, 2013 10:22 AM

    15. Eagles (1-1; No. 5): So when do all the people in Philly who wanted Andy Reid to be fired start complaining about the fact that he was?

    ————————–

    Never. Chip Kelly is a rookie head coach, hes going to make some mistakes.

    Andy Reid was given a LOT of leeway in his first few years. Actually, he was given a lot of slack for his first 10 years. It wasnt until everyone that has watched more than 5 Eagles games knew he had terrible tendencies and wasnt going to change them.

    Chip Kelly has a lot of rope here. Were much happier without him. Just give us a few years to rebuild from the mess he left us.

  41. jlb10 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:23 AM

    HEY! terrelle pryor was a rookie when the raiders traded for carson palmer. a rookie that had been suspended the first 5 games. please explain how the team was supposed to trust him?

  42. skoobyfl says: Sep 17, 2013 10:23 AM

    So the Bills are the worst 1-1 team in the NFL ?? We played Brady / Cam & should of won both games, so how exactly does this make us the worst of the .500 teams ??

  43. loubearkane says: Sep 17, 2013 10:25 AM

    How in the hell do you have the Ravens at #6

  44. dickjagger says: Sep 17, 2013 10:25 AM

    Power Rankings are funny. Look at Peyton, top of the world, until the post-season hits. That’s what really matters. Rings not spectacular regular season stat’s. Don’t tell me Marino wouldn’t give up some of those impressive numbers/records for a ring.

  45. jwcarlson says: Sep 17, 2013 10:26 AM

    The Ravens might be worse than the Giants… and that really says something.

    They are both terrible but only the Giants are ranked anywhere near where they should be.

  46. tombradyswig says: Sep 17, 2013 10:27 AM

    Colts (1-1; No. 15): Jim Irsay demands more points. And a pony.

    awesome!!

    would’ve just added, “another drinky-poo”

  47. bucrightoff says: Sep 17, 2013 10:28 AM

    Schiano will be back next year if only for what he’s done to the defense. Not only have they played really, really good, they are the Bucs offense right now. They have set up or scored all the Bucs TDs. The offense’s longest drive is 43 yards. Bucs are the first team since they started keeping the sack stat to have 3 playerswith an INT and a sack in the first two weeks, ans they’re all the linebackers.

    But when Doug Martin outgaines Josh Freeman, or after his incredible INT return Mason Foster had 85 yards to Freeman’s 87 at the time, the issue on the Bucs becomes crystal clear.

  48. lsuzilla says: Sep 17, 2013 10:29 AM

    What does “SKOL” mean in relation to Viking posters? I see posters saying it from time to time.

  49. zam0854 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:29 AM

    The Redskins? The Redskins will win the division? Skins fans won’t realize it till Stafford tosses 500 passing on them this week. Lol this team is ONLY going down hill for the next few yrs. That lingering stink of an 18 mil cap penalty awaiting. These guys have no room to get better only older.

  50. beerndrums says: Sep 17, 2013 10:30 AM

    What’s with the Texans barely beating crap teams and getting ranked so high?
    I don’t get it

  51. autumnwind32 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:33 AM

    What happened to the Raiders being the worst team in football??

  52. wearethesteelers says: Sep 17, 2013 10:34 AM

    Having the Ravens at 6 and Bengals at 11 is a joke. We are still the best in the AFC North. We just haven’t reached our form yet.

  53. jagsfan1 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:37 AM

    Peyton #1 in regular season…..but…. we all know what is going to happpen come playoff time – don’t we?

  54. micknangold says: Sep 17, 2013 10:37 AM

    You’re out of your mind if you think the Broncos are better than the Seahawks.

  55. brownspower says: Sep 17, 2013 10:37 AM

    The Browns aren’t getting the credit they deserve for being #32. What’ll it take to pass up (down) the Bucs and the Jags? What ever it is, I think they’ve already done it.

  56. texanfan62 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:38 AM

    I’m not going to sugar coat this, but the Texans ARE NOT A #3 TEAM, PERIOD! I’d put the Seahawks #1 because of their Defense, the Broncos #2, 49ers 3, Patriots 4, Bengals or Packers 5, and Dolphins or Saints 6. The Texans aren’t going anywhere if their Defense doesn’t improve and Schaub quits making mental mistakes. But realistically, I didn’t expect them to get past the Divisional Round again this year.

  57. dmretrogames says: Sep 17, 2013 10:39 AM

    RGIII should not be benched, but was Green Bay playing “make it, take it” when they raced out 24-0? Feel free to answer their scores with some of your own.

  58. captbuff says: Sep 17, 2013 10:41 AM

    Patriots squeak by #24 by 2 points, squeak by #28 by 3 points, move up in power rankings.

    Eagles lose to #14 on a last second field goal, fall 10 spots.

  59. rnt2000 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:41 AM

    The Bills played good ball the last 2 weeks and NEVER get any LOVE….They are a much better team than your so called “Power Ranking” #26 I would have at least put them around 18-20 at least.

  60. kingpel says: Sep 17, 2013 10:41 AM

    20. Rams (1-1; No. 17): For the Rams to become a great team, they can’t fall behind by 21 on the road.

    Oh. The man has jokes!

  61. bluenose1965 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:43 AM

    First, who really cares where your team is “ranked” after week 2. Texans aren’t currently the 3rd best team in the NFL, but the Titans and Charges have both gone on the road and won in Pa. Let’s not undersell those two teams just yet.

    Winning away from home in the NFL is not easy and usually separates the good to average to bad teams.

  62. finer9erfan says: Sep 17, 2013 10:47 AM

    Obvious 9er’s fan here. I can’t believe Seattle is not ranked #1. I think Seattle is all around a better team than most of the league. Their depth on that defense is ridiculous when they get everyone healthy again.

    As a 9ers fan, I’ll take my lumps. We all know Seattle is the real deal. Now for those right/left winged fans (Seattle/SF), RELAX. We are in week 3. Let’s keep it classy and enjoy the best division in football.

    The NFC West will win the SB this year. My prediction is SF but obviously you can’t count out SEA.

  63. niko0063 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:47 AM

    15. Eagles (1-1; No. 5): So when do all the people in Philly who wanted Andy Reid to be fired start complaining about the fact that he was?

    This is one instance where the media cannot stir the pot. Remember this is a re-build year (especially for D) and Chips 1st season as a HC in the NFL. Most of you were expecting him to fall flat on his face. He instead took a team that fell apart (and who were quit on by Reid) and re-packaged them and is doing better than anybody could imagine. We beat the redskins and lost to the chargers by 3. Why exactly would anybody call for his head or wish for Reid to be back? He made some rookie HC mistakes but remember were not suppose to be good if its a re-build year and if we are that should scare folks. Reid is an after thought in Philly. In Chip We Trust.

  65. jax9113 says: Sep 17, 2013 10:50 AM

    Finally some love for the Dolphins. Falcons this week at home will be a major test of our new success – if we win this game we’ll be top 6 next week.

  66. channelguy says: Sep 17, 2013 10:54 AM

    Seahawks are a top rank team if they play all their games at home. But as long as they have to play half their games on the road, they will stumble and bumble, almost losing to the same Carolina team that lost to BUFFALO. And if Seattle loses 4-5 on the road, they won’t be at home throughout the playoffs. And that means they won’t be in the Super Bowl.

    Houston at #3 is also comic, but since half the posters have pointed this out, I’ll pass.

  67. stoogy says: Sep 17, 2013 10:55 AM

    Raiders are going to surprise the world monday night as they make Manning look like Ponder and Run DMC has a great night up in Denver.

  68. blacknole08 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:00 AM

    Texans are NOT a top 5 team. They should have dominated both the Chargers and Titans but needed come from behind victories against both.

  69. tokyosandblaster says: Sep 17, 2013 11:02 AM

    There seems to be some mistake here, guys. Chi01town says that all 2-0 teams are obviously better than anyone who isn’t 2-0, regardless of schedule.

    And since he’s always right (last year he called the bears winning the division and the Super Bowl, and look what happened!).

    Please look at the facts. Chi01town is always right. There is no possible way anyone with a 1-1 record (even the team that just played in the Super Bowl) is better than any team with a 2-0 record, like Miami. Miami would flat out destroy the niners.

  70. bostonian13 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:06 AM

    No way in hell that the ravens should be ahead of the Pats, let alone in the top 10. Not even trying to sound bias, the Ravens are bad, norm top 10 worthy at all.

  71. hehateme2 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:10 AM

    jets ranked to high…

  72. forsbergler says: Sep 17, 2013 11:11 AM

    2 stinkers of a game and the Pats are #8? Really?

  73. eaglelover1 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:15 AM

    3 1-1 teams in the top 10 and 3 2-0 teams ranked out the top ten…even the Jets are ranked in the 20’s…lot’s of bias here

  74. fc187 says: Sep 17, 2013 11:16 AM

    Steelers are way to high on this list.

  75. whatjusthapped says: Sep 17, 2013 11:16 AM

    Vikings at #25 is too high, they are not as bad as the Jags but close.

  76. johnnyprc says: Sep 17, 2013 11:16 AM

    Texans are ranked way too high – no way above 49ers and I am a Seahawk fan.

    No one fully understands how good Seattle and 49ers are – they should still be #1, #2, and then everyone else.

  77. goawayeverybody says: Sep 17, 2013 11:17 AM

    As much as I despise the Buccaneers they should not be placed this low. They could just as easily be 2-0 in which case you’d have to put them in the top 10 or even the top 5.

    The Buccaneers defense is easily one of the elite units in the league – maybe the team should be ranked in the mid 20’s due to being 0-2 but not 31st. The Browns are far far worse than this team. The Redskins are waaaaaay worse than the Bucs too.

    NEVER!!! Talked to a Chiefs fan yesterday that was already frustrated by Reid’s clock management. My screen name says it all.

    There is panic in the streets of Pittsburgh. I’m obviously a Steelers fan. This morning on my way to work there was men kicking their dogs, I saw 10 guys jump off the mckees rocks bridge. Everybody is arguing with each other. People cutting each other off in traffic with guns waving out the window. And that was just my drive into work! 29th is way too high. They aren’t even able to beat my old high school team right now! The line on that may be Steelers +7…

    Seriously Florio? You have Buffalo at #24? Why so low? The Bills were a few batted down passes away from beating your #8, kept Cam Newton and Steve Smith contained and they are considered your worse 1-1 team? C’mon man!

  82. jbaxt says: Sep 17, 2013 11:25 AM

    Raiders at 21? Uh, didn’t their QB only have 150 yards total, running and passing? And they gave up points to the worst team in the last 20 years. A team that was out their starting QB and Starting RB.

    The raiders secured the #2 overall pick, unless Cleveland wins the coin toss.

    I assure you, no one in Philly is going to be pining for the return of Andy “That one’s on me, we need to do a better job” Reid. With the godawful roster Andy and staff assembled, it is amazing that Chip already has one win under his belt. Outside of McCoy and occasionally, Desean Jackson, the talent level on the team is atrocious. The defensive personnel is probably worst in the NFL, thanks to Andy and Howie and company. Even if the Chiefs go 13-3, we all know Andy can never win the big one because (1) he manages the clock like he’s on acid, (2) he refuses to adjust his game plan to what the opponent is doing, (3) is incredibly predictable in his play calling and doesn’t change up his signals, and (4) he constantly reverts to a 70/30 pass/run ratio. Sure, he’ll win some regular season games. If that’s what you want, then he’s your man. If you hope to win a championship, you better look elsewhere.

    “With 54 points scored in two losses, maybe the passing game isn’t the problem.”

    No, no-the passing game is the problem. Can’t keep relying on Special Teams and Defensive Touchdowns. Ponder couldn’t find Lake Superior unless he was aiming at the Pacific Ocean. 2 Td’s 4 INTs.

    But you are correct that the Defense is abysmal right now. Vikes will be lucky to win 3 or 4.

    15. Eagles (1-1; No. 5): So when do all the people in Philly who wanted Andy Reid to be fired start complaining about the fact that he was?

    Lame attempt at snark; I expect better from you guys.

    The Philly-Reid divorce was a long time coming, and NO ONE in Philly is losing sleep over it.

    In Philly the jury’s still out on Chipper, but he’s exceeding early expectations and – most importantly for long time viewers of the fathead Andy show – he appears to *admit* his mistakes and even *learn* from them. :)

    As for Andy, he landed in the place with the most potential upside in the NFL this season. KC was ready for basic football competence, and with Andy and Alex Smith they will get it, along with 8-10 wins.

    Andy had 5 good years in Philly before his blind spots become undeniably apparent and his schtick got old, and he’ll probably have at least the same in KC. Maybe more, as Pioli will be handling GM duties.

    So in this case, it is truly a win-win for both parties, regardless of the result this week. Still should be an interesting game Thursday.

  99. 8man says: Sep 17, 2013 11:57 AM

    I think the Patriots are too high. That is some hideous football they have been playing. They are a fortunate 2-0.

    Miami has been more impressive. Big win for them in Indy. They should be higher. Chiefs probably ought to be higher also.

    To the fans that think Seattle struggled on the road just because its on the road. Carolina defensive front did what 49ers couldn’t shut down the run game. Winning in NFL is about the way specific teams match up to one another so pointing to other teams beating other teams means nothing. Our offensive line has struggled in pass protection, the second game Okung going down hurt but I know they feel good about the back ups. Denver lost their Pro Bowl LT too so this will make it tougher for both teams.

    “Seahawks are a top rank team if they play all their games at home. But as long as they have to play half their games on the road, they will stumble and bumble, almost losing to the same Carolina team that lost to BUFFALO.”

    The score may have been close, but they weren’t anywhere near “almost losing” to the Panthers. Besides, it’s difficult to play on the road against any NFL team. The Panthers lost to the Bills, who aren’t that bad, on the road. Pats almost lost to the Bills, too. You’re really making a mountain of a molehill.

    The Steelers are too high???? No, take a look at the Ravens at 6- they are WAY TOO HIGH!! Teams 7 through 11 should be in front of them easily!! Even 12th and 13th teams IMO are better than the Ravens at this point. They got crushed by Broncos and barely beat a woeful Browns team at home. The Steelers are possibly one spot too high with Bucs maybe being in front of them, but they blew two games at the end. The Jags and Browns have been more woeful than the Steelers as the PF and PG indicate. Jags suck on both sides of the ball and Browns just suck period.

    Texans have to come from 21 down to a weak Chargers team, then have to go to overtime to beat a rebuilding Titans team.

    The next 4 or 5 games these teams are playing should be taken into account. Any team playing Denver, in the next month, is going to drop in the rankings, and anyone playing Jacksonville will probably rise. That said; division games are more valuable wins than any others. Away games should count more than home games. If Seattle, and Chicago, win all of their home games, would anyone be surprised? Tampa Bay will have to play by the NFL rules when playing away games, and that will be a huge change for them. As bad as Brees played, for the Saints, in Tampa, it was still a dumb plan to play prevent against him, and if you give him a minute left on the clock, with no timeouts, he showed that even when he is not at his best, you are still going to lose. New England and New Orleans, both, played 2 division games, back to back, to start the season, and both teams are 2-0. They should be right up there with Denver.

  149. 20bust11 says: Sep 17, 2013 3:22 PM

    ________________________________
    Not really – your just looking at the one play where they lost the game. Look at the 14 points the Bucs had – the Saints GAVE them to you – they weren’t earned. So to look at the big picture if the Saints had not given two interceptions the Bucs would have 0 points for that game. Seem sgood reason to lower their ran

Even if the Chiefs go 13-3, we all know Andy can never win the big one because (1) he manages the clock like he’s on acid, (2) he refuses to adjust his game plan to what the opponent is doing, (3) is incredibly predictable in his play calling and doesn’t change up his signals, and (4) he constantly reverts to a 70/30 pass/run ratio. Sure, he’ll win some regular season games. If that’s what you want, then he’s your man. If you hope to win a championship, you better look elsewhere.

    What does “SKOL” mean in relation to Viking posters? I see posters saying it from time to time.
    ===========================
    Translated, it means choke, the old Vikings tended to eat red meat without a lot of chewing so they got to yellings SKOAL so their fellow Vikings would slap them hard on the back to dislodge the food. Its current use is because the football team gets slapped around all the time and the few times they make it to the playoffs, they choke.

    Hope that clears things up for you.

    Patriots get Gronk back and they go up the list faster than his surgeons income has lately.

    Niners are NOT behind the Texans…no way, no how!

    Bengals showed me something last night…they are a top 10 team

    Vikings are the best 0-2 team

    Bears are the worst 2-0 team

    Chiefs will upset the Donkeys and win the West

    otherwise…pretty good.

    The bears beat two teams that were in the playoffs last year, and current top ten. I think their ranking is appropriate. And it could be worse, the could be 2-0 and BARELY beat the jets and bills…

    Is there such a thing as lose-small for road games? Looking at the top 4 road stats, my 49ers (5/8) do not fare much better than the hawks (3/8). Den and Hou both had 6/8 road records. But for fun, look at the ppts per game average margin for the road losses.

    SF: 16.5 points per game
    Hawks: 4.8 points per game
    Den: 8.0 points per game
    Hou: 25.0 points per game

    Yes, I would rather have a road win vs a loss anyday. Just seems some teams have less to fix on the road than others. the record just might not reflect that. I don’t want to go back to Seattle again anytime soon though.

    Seahawks should be ranked # 1. SEA D is outstanding holding opponents to a cumulative 10 points in two games. SEA still has yet to have Percy Harvin, Brandon Browner, Chris Clemons and Bruce Irvin in the lineup. Broncos have a fluff schedule.

    For anyone that did actually watch the Vikings-Bears game, I find it disrespectful that credit goes unshared in the public view when there are other playmakers in Minnesota than Adrian especially that played a factor in our first close game in Chicago in 4 years.

    For anyone who is saying Seattle is number 1 you should take a step back n look at what Denver has done. 90 points in two games? One of this wins coming on the road. They showed that their offense can dominate a game against the Ravens and that their D and special teams is a game changer as well against the Giants. The Seahawks just made it out of Carolina with a less then convincing win and beat the 49ers at home. I’m not saying Hawks don’t deserve a look but Denver all around is number 1.

    Hey Tokyo, so championships from decades ago mean that your current team should be taken seriously? U may want to try a different sport, maybe soccer…

    Yeah! Seattle hasn’t won anything! Except Sunday night’s game…oh, and the game the week before that which I guess is how these rankings get picked…every Tuesday…after the games are won or lost… but I see your point.

  162. WACANHFL says: Sep 17, 2013 8:22 PM

    Can’t blame these guys for the ranking errors. Using that ESPN pick’em those teams can slide all over the place…

    What do he hawks have to do, in order to get some love? Whatever, Richard Sherman warned you! Triple digits against the jags?

  164. materialman80 says: Sep 18, 2013 3:31 PM

    The Steelers are now losers. My how the world changes.

  165. materialman80 says: Sep 18, 2013 3:35 PM

    The Jags need to hire Tebow. How could he hurt?

    The question about the Seahawks is can they do it away from Seattle?

    Their essentially untouchable at the Clink but they seem to be a different team on the road.

    They travel to Houston next week. I personally think that, especially with no Duane Brown, the Seahawks will win, but that’s a big test for them to play a high quality team on the road.

    When you had the Eagles at #5 last week, you lost all credibility. Really? Come on man.

    Seattle has JAX at home this coming week, Texans after that though.

    Frankenklein9009

    Denver has done extremely well over these past couple of weeks on offense, but the argument for the Seahawks is that they’ve allowed 1/5th the points that the broncos have allowed, and forced 2 more turnovers.
