Week Two power rankings

Getty Images

1. Raiders (2-0; previously No. 2): Marshawn should polish up on his breakdancing because it feels like 1983 all over again the Raiders.

2. Chiefs (2-0; No. 3): If Spencer Ware hadn’t gotten injured, the Chiefs may not be undefeated.

3. Patriots (1-1; No. 5): Nice.

4. Falcons (2-0; No. 7): When the opponent is on the ropes, the Falcons need to learn how to punch them through.

5. Steelers (2-0; No. 8): Take away Bell, Brown gets you. Take away both, Bryant gets you.

6. Packers (1-1; No. 1): Take away Rodgers, and the Packers wouldn’t win a game.

7. Lions (2-0; No. 9): There’s a chance the Lions are great. There’s also a chance they simply have beaten two opposite-of-great teams.

8. Broncos (2-0; No. 15): The good news is they may have found a franchise quarterback in round seven. The bad news is they may have pissed away a first-round pick on a potential franchise quarterback.

9. Seahawks (1-1; No. 6): The Seahawks tend to get better as the season progresses. This year they definitely need to.

10. Cowboys (1-1; No. 4): Ezekiel Elliott‘s suspension didn’t start last week. It just seems that way.

11. Dolphins (1-0; No. 12): Cigarettes for everyone.

12. Ravens (2-0; No. 13): They should just have the defensive players play both ways.

13. Buccaneers (1-0; No. 16): The Bucs may not just be the second-best team in the division; they may be the second-best team in the NFC.

14. Panthers (2-0; No. 17): Cam Newton may be OK for now, but behind that offensive line he won’t be OK for long.

15. Titans (1-1; No. 19): From 2-4 in the AFC South a year ago to 1-0 this year; performance in the division will be the key to Tennessee’s season.

16. Eagles (1-1; No. 10):  They’ve got a chance to make it a two-team race in the NFC East, if they can manhandle the Giants.

17. Vikings (1-1; No. 14): An old-school NFC Central fight with the Bucs could go a long way toward revealing whether the Vikings are for real.

18. Texans (1-1; No. 28): Better late than never — and just in time for the Patriots — Deshaun Watson is the guy.

19. Rams (1-1; No. 18): The annual RGIII bowl was about as inspiring as it ever is.

20. Jaguars (1-1; No. 11): They are you we thought they were.

21. Washington (1-1; No. 25): They’ve pulled the ultimate “psych!” move on Su’a.

22. Bills (1-1; No. 20): Sean McDermott will keep telling us Tyrod Taylor is the quarterback until the precise moment McDermott decides Taylor isn’t.

23. Cardinals (1-1; No. 21): Bruce Arians has finally figured out what many already knew about this team — the quarterback is often more of a liability than an asset.

24. Chargers (0-2; No. 22): Two games behind a three-way cluster at the top of the division, the Chargers’ season feels over when it’s barely begun.

25. Giants (0-2; No. 24): Brylcreem Ben McAdoo can feel the season slip-sliding away.

26. Saints (0-2; No. 26): Adrian Peterson didn’t sign up for 0-2, either.

27. Bears (0-2; No. 23): Two games left, at most, before Mitchell Trubisky makes his debut.

28. Browns (0-2; No. 27): The fact that the Browns are favored on the road tells you everything you need to know about the current state of the NFL.

29. Bengals (0-2; No. 29): Andy Dalton has the full support of the coaching staff. Until he doesn’t.

30. Jets (0-2; No. 30): Their pursuit of Sam Darnold has been complicated by the presence of other unexpectedly crappy teams.

31. 49ers (0-2; No. 31): Tune in for Thursday Night Traffic Problems.

32. Colts (0-2; No. 32): “Taking the Cardinals to overtime” may be the only banner fodder they have this year; “home ‘dogs against the Browns” definitely won’t make the cut.

  1. How do you drop the Eagles six spots when they hung with your number 2 team in their own stadium, and realistically could’ve/should’ve won? Ridiculous.

    How are the patriots ahead of other undefeated teams? Come on.

    ———

    It’s not a ranking by wins. Anyone can do that. The Patriots were near the top and performed well. You can’t knock them down too far.

  3. Broncos at 8? Come on, they should at least be top 6. And the raiders at #1 after they beat a tough Jets team… I can’t wait until week 4 when my Broncos can bring the raiders down to Earth just like they did to the Cowboys.

    Because they lost. Doesn’t matter that they could have won.

  5. IT’S GOIING TO BE SO FUNNY HOW EVERYONE IS GOING TO BE PISSED AT MY RAIDERS FOR BEING 1A WITH THE CHIEFS 1B SO QUE THE RAIDER HATERS ITS YOUR TIME TO SHINE…..

  6. Let me get this out of the way first: Mike Glennon is probably not a franchise QB. That being said, I watched a sequence last week where his receivers dropped passes on three consecutive plays. In Week One, what would have been the winning TD pass against the defending NFC Champs was dropped. Unless Mitch Trubisky has some magic touch that makes his passes undroppable, I am not sure the result will be much different.

  7. “The fact that the Browns are favored on the road tells you everything you need to know about the current state of the NFL.”
    Really Florio?

    The fact of the matter is that the on-the-field product is getting worse. Who is on the field? Union protected pampered players who don’t like to practice in pads and think that as long as they have signed their contract, they’ve already won.
    The players demand all of the attention yet when they suck on the field they blame the coaches, management, Goodell, etc. They (players) demand all of the glory but refuse to accept the criticism.
    If players would work harder, spend time in film study, and put forth maximum effort, the product would be better. But they are all mega-rich millionaires and just don’t care, they take no pride in their work.
    So when you blame the NFL, you mean to blame Goodell but you SHOULD be blaming your beloved players.

  8. Nice? Is that a reference to some locker room quote or something, I hope? Otherwise, it’s not exactly scintillating commentary. And I’m sorry… even if the Raiders did move up a slot because the Packers dropped out of #1, no one should get a bump the week after they play the Jets unless they score in the high 80s-mid 90s.

    I guess when your team hasn’t won anything relevant on the field in over a decade being ranked #1 for a week in the PFT power rankings is something for which to aspire. Congrats.

  11. As a Raider fan.. still think the Chiefs belong on top since they beat two very good teams back to back. Love my Raiders, but they need to prove it first.

  12. Chiefs missing 2 starting DB’s will eventually catch up with them. But as long as Houston and Jones are playing at a high level the DB’s may not matter. Add Hill, Kelce, and Hunt on offense… Who has better skilled positions than that trio?

    —————–

    First of all, I think his point was that the team moved down six spots while losing to a team that moved up. Which makes no sense if you think of it the other way around. Why should the Chiefs move up if the team they beat this week is not strong enough to hold their previous spot, and is now only deemed 16th?

    And yes, it should matter that they could have won, especially against a team as good as the Chiefs. They could have gotten blown out, but instead, they were leading in the 4th and hung tough.

  14. I’m not usually one to complain about someone’s arbitrary, meaningless power rankings, but I don’t think the Raiders are the best team in the league right now… they have beaten one mediocre team (the Titans playing at their worst) and one awful team. Can we at least wait until they play an AFC West opponent before ranking them #1? The Chiefs beat them twice last year, and the Chiefs and Broncos have both blown out better opponents than the Raiders have this year. I’d put the Raiders at least at #5.

    Also, everyone’s going nuts over Marshawn Lynch, but he only had 12 carries for 45 yards. 3rd on his own team in rushing in Week 2.

    It’s nice to see whiners and losers crying about the Raiders and Chiefs for a change. Was getting old hearing everyone always complaining about the Patriots.
    //////////////

    ………and the Packers.

  16. Really confused at how the Cowboys are 6 spots ahead of the Eagles. I get their both 1-1 teams but the Cowboys looked like crap 2 games in a row now.

  17. The Chiefs beat the (at the time) one ranked Patriots in Gillette and the 10th ranked Eagles but are behind the Raiders who beat the (at the time) 19th ranked Titans and the bottom feeding Jets. And this makes sense to you? Alrighty then.

  18. I commend Oakland and Kansas City for holding the top 2 spots. KC beat NE straight up and deserves to be higher. The trick is to MAINTAIN going forward. If Kansas City loses 4 of their next 8 and New England wins 7 of their next 8, I don’t want to hear any crying “But we destroyed you in Week 1” comments when the Patriots(8-2) are ranked higher than Kansas City(6-4).

  19. “Per usual a total lack of respect for Detroit.”

    They haven’t won a playoff game since Bush Sr. was President. Not sure what you expect.

  20. Last week it was the Packers, we all laughed, and then they got blown out.
    ——
    Didn’t your team lose by more pts to a team that wasn’t in the SB last year?

  21. LOL the Faiders beat the Jets… The JETS!! They were discussing on NFL Network if the Jets would go winless this season…. So beat the worst team in the league and you are now #1. This is so funny its disturbing.

    “You must really hate the Chiefs? The Faiders haven’t beaten the Chiefs in 2yrs..lol
    And you have them number 1?”
    __________________________________

    – well, if you like reminiscing about yesterday… here’s today’s history lesson: Kerouac is a Chiefs fan since 1963, so knows that they haven’t won/nor even played in a Superbowl since 1970 or 47 years… lol…while the Raiders have won 3 Superbowl’s during that time.

    Further, I learned as a young Chiefs fan in 1969 the best team doesn’t always win, example the Raiders who were better than the Chiefs (or, truth be told, better than anyone else in pro football) except on 1/4/70. The Raiders had beaten my Chiefs 4 straight times over two years and 7 of the previous 8 games over the last 5 years. Point: so what, in retrospect.

    On to current affairs, Raiders are once again headed that direction, appears. Smoke ’em if you got ’em and when you don’t got ’em… well, you’re the Chiefs, the great pretenders.

    (PS) Watch out for those Broncos too, by the way (like the Raiders, multiple Superbowl’s won too since Chiefs have been wandering in the football wilderness the last 4 decades.)

  23. Take away Rodgers, and the Packers wouldn’t win a game.
    ——-
    And Bahk, Bulaga, Nelson, Daniels, etc. Let’s not get carried away. The refs make a different call on that forward pass/lateral and it’s a different game. With those injuries in that stadium I wasn’t disappointed or surprised.

  24. Beating the Falcons in their home opener in a new stadium was going to be tough, no matter what.

    Vikings fans should remember last year when a team that wound up being absolutely horrible beat a team that was in the NFC Championship solely because it was their home opener in a brand new stadium.

    Raidahs

    Not #1 but it’s just a useless early season ranking. Still, they’re making it fun to be a fan again!

    There is only one side

    RAIDER NATION

    They are making it fun to ba a fan again!
    (DEFINITION OF A BANDWAGON) WE HAVE ONE HERE FELLAS.

  26. Its a long season. Anyone getting excited because their team is at or near the top of the power rankings after week 2 is getting a little ahead of things.

    Lets see whose up there when week 17 rolls around and the playoffs are next

  27. Chiefs should be 1. They beat NE and Phi and the raiders twice last year. The raiders beat Tenn and… the Jets. The jets will make anyone’s defense look like they are improving.

    Kearse got 2 tds too I am still cheering for him there.

  28. Packer people will tell you that you take away anyone on their team and that’s a good enough excuse for a loss. It doesn’t have to be Rodgers that you take away.

  29. You can’t rank an AFC West team above the Chiefs, until one of them beat them. I mean, obviously you’re not banking these rankings on just this season. Otherwise, the Chiefs or Falcons would be number one. the Chiefs went 6-0 vs the AFC West last season. So, please explain how the Raiders are number one?

  30. redlava316 says:

    You can’t just put the Faiders at number 1…. Who can’t beat the Jets?

    you haven’t won anything in 48 years, why are you talking?

  31. Patriots beat the 26th ranked team and jump up two spots, meanwhile undefeated teams like Denver and Atlanta are below them………..At the very most patriots shouldn’t have stayed at 5.

  32. I’m a lifelong Raider fan but even I realize that placing us #1 with wins against the Titans & the Jets is a bit much. Chiefs beat the Patriots & Philly. We are a solid 3 or 4 right now.

  34. Dolphins ahead of the Ravens? Seriously? Miami beats the number 24 team on your list by two because the Chargers kicker misses a 44 yard file goal at the buzzer and you have them ahead of the Ravens. They shouldnt even be ahead of the Bucs, Panthers or Titans.

  35. “13. Buccaneers (1-0; No. 16): The Bucs may not just be the second-best team in the division; they may be the second-best team in the NFC.”

    “Maybe” cause your own list has them fifth.

  36. 6. Packers (1-1; No. 1): Take away Rodgers, and the Packers wouldn’t win a game.
    —————————
    If you or any of the football geniuses on here honestly believe this, then go ahead and just hand over the NFL MVP trophy to Rodgers right now.
    In fact, recall the trophy over the last several years and hand them over to him.
    Now Rodgers is a great QB, there’s no doubt about that, but if he’s able to continually beat entire 53 man rosters all by himself.
    And will a “no win” team to the playoffs 8 years in a row, along with 5 division titles and the NFC Championship game 2 of the last 3 years, he’s the most valuable player, hands down.
    And there shouldn’t even be a discussion.

    HUH?

    ————————————————————————–

    For you and all the other 12 year olds online now, the Bucs were in the NFC Central with the 4 teams from the NFC North for almost 25 years. Also, the Seahawks were in the AFC West, believe it or not!

  38. And will a “no win” team to the playoffs 8 years in a row, along with 5 division titles and the NFC Championship game 2 of the last 3 years, he’s the most valuable player, hands down.

    Nah, you put it in the wrong spot. There, fixed. 🙂

  40. Wow, Raiders have beat the Titans and JETS! Chiefs beat the Patriots in their house and the Eagles (good shot at being a playoff team) and the Raiders are ahead of Chiefs? Lets see them beat someone of the Patriots caliber first!

  41. I really don’t care about the rankings, but I will point out that the #5 Steelers would easily beat all of the top 4 teams, so these rankings are flawed.

  42. Jags and Rams higher than the Skins? Why? The Redskins were pretty much in control most of the game when they beat the Rams. The Cowboys shouldn’t be in the top 10. The Eagles look better than the Cowboys do. Seattle is ranked too high also. The only reason why Seattle is ranked so high is because of previous years’ success. They look like crap this season.

  43. I feel like any ranking system that doesn’t have the Vikings dead last is a little flawed. What have they done? Literally EVER. What have they done ever?

    The answer is that they’ve lost a lot of games and never won the important ones.

    So they have zero power.

  44. as much as i love the Raiders, you cant put them number 1 until they can beat the chiefs. KC has owned them the past few years. and they played 2 good teams already. the raiders just played the tanking Jets at home.

    This sounds like an unhealthy obsession.

    They’ve really never won an important game? I suppose in your mind the only important game is the Super Bowl, so any game in any season that doesn’t end in a Super Bowl victory is retroactively deemed an unimportant game. So winning a Week 17 game in Lambeau Field to win the division is not considered winning an important game because they didn’t win the Super Bowl that year.

    Speaking of zero power, how does it feel to know that the only power you have is to make nonsensical statements against the Vikings as an anonymous internet commenter?

    Like it or not, the patriots hold the two biggest cheating scandals in the history of the NFL. Found guilty of both. I know you don’t like the idea of your team cheating to win……but they did. And no it isn’t a “hey, everyone does it” thing. You dont incur fines of $750K and $1 million for something ‘every team does’. That’s just ridiculous to think. Im not a steelers fan……….but as far as i know they didnt have years of cheating, multiple times with fines like the patriots had. The definition of asterisk is to “notate doubt”, not a soul on earth can say 100% what would happen with fully inflated ballss, i personally believe they would have beat the colts either way (but i cant say 100%), BUT i will say, without cheating i don’t think they would have beat the ravens the week before (3 point game). Again, no one knows………..hence the asterisk.

  48. 6. Packers (1-1; No. 1): Take away Rodgers, and the Packers wouldn’t win a game.

    So, why are the packers, as a team, ranked so high?

    The truth hurts that much huh? 🙂

    Unlike the Patriots, who were victims of completely fabricated made up cheating perpretrated by the league and a few jealous owners, the * for the Steelers is to denote cheating that is very real.

    Their HOF QB admitted their cheating with PEDs in the 70’s for the first 4 of their 6 tainted titles. Dr Rydze’s help, while more circumstantial, still creates enough doubt for another * on their win* over the Cardinals. Now it’s possible didn’t cheat to beat the Seahawks but the * is to denote that the Steelers are the only champion* in the history of the NFL where the game referee apologized to the opposing team and their fans for “impacting the result of the game”. Nuff said.

    My team has 5 legit titles, all earned fair and square without cheating. The Steelers have 0. They are not at OUR level. Period.

    I know the truth stings but I only preach truth and facts. That is my duty cupcakes. 🙂

    Cheers!

    An “old school NFC Central battle” between the Vikings and Bucaneers?

    HUH?

    —————————————————————————–

    Back before you were born, Minnesota and Tampa Bay both played in a division called the NFC Central. You could look it up.

  51. How are the patriots ahead of other undefeated teams? Come on.

    Because you know what’s coming, like Mike does.

  52. The definition of asterisk is to “notate doubt”, not a soul on earth can say 100% what would happen with fully inflated ballss, i personally believe they would have beat the colts either way (but i cant say 100%),
    ——————————————
    I can’t say either. I mean, during the first 5 minutes that 42-7 game was definitely up for grabs. As it is, I personally hope you’re still sweating bullets and losing sleep over Belichick and Brady 20 years from now.
    BTW, hope you felt the same way about the Broncos after they were docked 3rd round picks and $1.9M for deliberately circumventing the salary cap during their two SB winning wins in the late 90’s.
    Let me guess, those don’t count, right?

  53. KC is easily #1 right now. I think the Cowboys, Pats and Packers are too high. Broncos should probably pop up to #2 or #3. But I think it’s safe to say AFC West at this time (week 2) has the three best teams in the league.

  54. Lol, power rankings are important to the fans of lesser teams (i.e. not fans of teams like the patriots).

    To fans of teams like the patriots it only matters where you end up and pats fans know that is probably going to be the SB again this year LOL!

  55. The AFCW is definately sending 3 representatives to the playoffs this year.

    ————————————————————————-

    Maybe the AFC West has three of the top 6 teams in the AFC, but it’s not that likely that all three go to the playoffs because having to play each other twice gives them extra losses which hurts them in either the wild card race or in the effort to get a first round bye.

    It’s actually pretty likely that three out of the four of Pats, Steelers, Ravens, Dolphins go to the playoffs this year (most likely Steelers and Ravens go because they both have paper soft schedules this year.) And if all three AFC West teams do make it to the playoffs, it’s pretty likely they are all playing in the first round, hurting each other’s chances of going all the way.

    I mean Broncos finished 9-7 last year and missed the playoffs, how many of their losses came from divisional rivals?

  56. Most fans dislike teams from their division that beat up on their team. This is why it makes sense why there are so many comments about the 13 time world champion Packers. If Rodgers went down for 8 games and GB fell to #20, there would still be complaining they were ranked too high. Man, it must suck to have an opponent that far into your head.

  57. Can anyone remember the last time that the Steelers defeated the Patriots in a game that had significant consequences? Maybe the 1997 playoffs, but since then it’s been nothing but utter domination, including 3 AFC Title victories, two of which occurred in Yinzerville. Ever since the limitations that were devised with the advent of free agency and the salary cap (unless you’re the Broncos) the league has basically become the Patriots and 31 other teams.

    Your team has ruined the NFL!

    Congrats, I guess??…………………….

  59. Love that taste of packer tears.

    If he wasn’t such a diva, I’d almost maybe possibly feel a little sad for A-Aron.
    You can tell that he knows no matter how hard he plays or how many touchdowns he throws or how many times the refs bail him or the team it out it wont matter come January and the same thing will happen again and happen. Humiliated in the playoffs.

  60. So the packers barely squeak out a home win against what is becoming increasingly obvious is a bad Seattle team and they get praised as the all time greatest team, defence is fixed, already naming them super bowl champions after week one.

    San Fran holds that very same team to just 3 more points than the Packers did while doing it on the road in Seattle and they’re the second worst team in the league.

    Oakland beats a middle of the pack Tennessee team and an historically bad Jets team and they’re number one.

    KC beats a middle of the pack Eagles team and absolutely demolishes an historically great team that many people thought would go 19-0 and are placed behind Oakland.

    Atlanta blows out Green Bay (let’s be honest, they were going through the motions once they got up 34-7. That was a beat down despite the 11 point final differential) and is 5th even though they took last weeks Superbowl champs to school.

  61. This Packer love that puts them sub #8 no matter how they look is sickening. If it weren’t for a Phantom punch and blown blocking call at home they would 0-2!
    That is ok it is always fun watching Packer fans walking out of the last game of the year with their heads hung low. Lions love Cheese and will Devour the Pack twice and take the NFCN.

    Don’t forget-‘they are also the only team in NFL history to be fined for taping another team’s practices!

  63. 6. Packers (1-1; No. 1): Take away Rodgers, and the Packers wouldn’t win a game.

    If Rodgers went down for 8 games and GB fell to #20, there would still be complaining they were ranked too high.
    _________

    Of course there would be complaining they were ranked too high, because they should be ranked #32 if Rodgers were gone. Are you delusional enough to believe the Packers are a top-20 team without Rodgers?

  65. The Vikings are too high!!! They shouldn’t even be in the top 25!!! WAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    (Yes, this is a sarcastic response to all the purples who are inevitably crying that the Packers are ranked too high.)

    The Packers are still rated ahead of the Minnesota Bradford’s? Those dang referees.

    I’m a huge Viking fan and being rated ahead of them this year is nothing to be proud of

    It’s nice to see whiners and losers crying about the Raiders and Chiefs for a change. Was getting old hearing everyone always complaining about the Patriots.

    ………and the Packers

    ===================================================================

    This is ridiculous, even from a packers fan. Seriously, trying to lump yourselves in with the Patriots is hilarious! They are a dynasty because they are a complete team, not because they have a great quarterback and little else. I think I can take the liberty to speak for the majority of fans and say, you wish!!!!

  68. “Take away Rodgers and the Packers wouldn’t win a game” This is one of the laziest, dumbest pieces of analysis ever. Oh, take away Brady, take away Brees, take away Montana from yesteryear, etc., etc.. Just stupid.

    13 to 5

    You’ve got a long ways to go.

  70. You guys do realize the Ravens already have their defensive players playing both sides right? Undrafted rookie d-lineman Patrick Ricard changed his # to 42 to play fullback, while he is still tackling runners for losses, ask Joe Mixon. And granted the offense isn’t anywhere near the other side’s caliber, don’t look now but the Ravens are 3rd in rushing yards and the passing game was a marked improvement over week one when most of their key players were working off of one week of practice.

  71. I guess you can say what you want, when you have your own site. But to say the Raiders should be ahead of KC right now, is kinda like Fox news thinking Trump is a great President. I’m a Chiefs fan, but I’ll be man enough to say it, when Oakland has earned the #1 spot. Heck, I’m worried about the Chargers next week(as the rest of the division should be when they meet)!! It’s sure nice to have the best division in football again!!
