PFT’s Week Two power rankings

Getty Images

1. Patriots (1-0; last week No. 1): It’s already feeling like 2007 all over again.

2. Chiefs (1-0; No. 2): No Tyreek Hill? No problem. No Patrick Mahomes? Big problem.

3. Eagles (1-0; No. 3): DeSean Jackson‘s return underscores just how stupid it was to get rid of him.

4. Cowboys (1-0; No. 4): Dak Prescott, Franchise Quarterback.

5. Rams (1-0; No. 7): It wasn’t pretty, but a win in Carolina is still a pretty big deal.

6. Seahawks (1-0; No. 6): We’ll give them the benefit of the doubt for now, but a one-point win over the Bengals at home in September doesn’t suggest that they’ll be heading to Miami in February.

7. Saints (1-0; No. 8): It’s been a long time since they’ve been 1-0.

8. Vikings (1-0; No. 11): The Vikings finally figured out how to best use Kirk Cousins. As little as possible.

9. Packers (1-0; No. 16): The “audible thing” provided good cover for the fact that the defense appears to be significantly improved.

10. Chargers (1-0; No. 10): Another close game, another win for the Chargers.

11. Ravens (1-0; No. 13): Save some of those points for when you play the actual NFL teams, Ravens.

12. Titans (1-0; No. 19): Consistency will be the key to consistently staying in the top half of the league.

13. Bears (0-1; No. 5): That “Be You” message on the play sheet needs to be changed to “Be Someone Who Can Score More Than Three Points.”

14. Steelers (0-1; No. 9): Addition by subtraction is still subtraction.

15. Colts (0-1; No. 14): Maybe Adam Vinatieri should have retired, too.

16. Browns (0-1; No. 12): 18 penalties doesn’t mean that the Browns lack discipline; it takes discipline to violate the rules that many times.

17. Jaguars (0-1; No. 15): Bad news — no Nick Foles. Good news — Gardner Minshew may have something. Best news — they don’t have to play the Chiefs every week.

18. Bills (1-0; No. 20): Bills fans should be contributing to Kaare Vedvick’s foundation.

19. Panthers (0-1; No. 17): Even team with a healthy Cam Newton can’t overcome self-inflicted injuries.

20. 49ers (1-0; No. 22): As long as they play a quarterback who throws more pick sixes than Jimmy Garoppolo, they’ll be fine.

21. Texans (0-1; No. 21): Unless the blocking improves, Deshaun Watson may want to start having his mail delivered to the sideline medical tent.

22. Raiders (1-0; No. 28): They should cut a key player every Saturday.

23. Bengals (0-1; No. 29): Andy Dalton went a long way toward ensuring that his run of underachievement in Cincinnati will continue beyond 2019.

24. Falcons (0-1; No. 18): $66 million doesn’t buy what it used to.

25. Broncos (0-1; No. 23): They’d better hope the Raiders have the best offensive line they’ll face this year.

26. Jets (0-1; No. 24): If they don’t make the playoffs, they won’t have to look far to figure out why.

27. Lions (0-0-1; No. 25): They say a tie is like kissing your sister. For the Lions, that tie was like getting your ass kicked by your little brother whose feet still dangle when he’s sitting on the toilet.

28. Cardinals (0-0-1; No. 31): If someone had told Tramaine Brock not to try to catch a pass with his face, they’d be 1-0.

29. Buccaneers (0-1; No. 26): Eight months of 0-0 is always better than when the games actually start.

30. Washington (0-1; No. 27): When up 17-0, it’s great to have a guy like Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson to churn the clock oh wait.

31. Giants (0-1; No. 30): Unless and until the offense runs through Saquon Barkley, the Giants won’t be winning many games.

32. Dolphins (0-1; No. 32): They wouldn’t lose to Clemson. But at least they’d try.

    ____________

    That snarky comment has some truth to it, but I’m going to go out on a limb and say the Vikings will win some games this year when Cousins throws more than 10 passes. When you’re up 28-0, there’s no point in showing the next week’s opponent any more than you have to. Should be a very interesting game this week.

  2. 9. Packers (1-0; No. 16): The “audible thing” provided good cover for the fact that the defense appears to be significantly improved.
    ___________

    It certainly is. And the offense appears to be significantly worse. That doesn’t seem to be much of a topic of conversation this week.

  3. Ok yea Dallas beat one of the worst teams in the league so let’s put them in the top 5. No problem. Can’t wait for that team to fall on their face when they find out how average Dak is. Hope they pay him 40 mill a year and destroy that franchise for years

  4. So the Ravens ain’t play an actual team but the Cowboys did hmmm even though Miami have 2 pro bowl db’s And another good one in Minkah but the Cowboy played a real team even tho that team left the Cowboy receivers wide open last time I check every NFL team is an NFL team

  5. If the Packers are going to move up seven spots because they won a close game against the Bears, why did the Bears drop eight spots? It appears you’re saying the Packers are good because they beat a good team, but the Bears are mediocre because they lost to a mediocre team. My head hurts trying to reconcile these things.

    Ha, you’re out of your feeble purple mind. The best thing that could have happened to the Packers, was the Vikings winning big last week, just to over-inflate their egos and disguise the fact that there really isn’t that much great talent in Minnesota. No one can name more than about five of their players. LaFleur is likely to out-coach Zimmer badly, and all the pressure is on the Vikings, anyways. Should be fun.

  7. 27. Lions (0-0-1; No. 25)
    _ _ _

    So just below them at #28 is the Cards. And an (accurate) comment that if the DB had caught a sure INT, the Cards would have won.

    Yet NOBODY is saying that, had the refs not granted a timeout to a coach WHO WAS NOT THE HEAD COACH, the Lions run out that clock. No uproar about that huge officials gaffe, but hey, it’s the Lions, so no big deal..

  8. As a Seahawk fan for life. I will only say, i am a football fan and D. Brees rocks and has for years. well done legend.

  9. 23. Bengals (0-1; No. 29): Andy Dalton went a long way toward ensuring that his run of underachievement in Cincinnati will continue beyond 2019.

    ——

    I agree with the ranking. I’m also not the biggest fan of Andy Dalton. But, he played lights out on Sunday without AJ Green. Good ranking, bad justification.

  10. 1. Patriots…. great offense and defense
    2. Ravens…… see above
    3. Saints…… see above
    4. Rams…….. see above
    5. Packers….. Rogers has a defense
    6. Cowboys……contenders
    7. Vikings……not sold on Cousins
    8. K.C……… No Hill is a killer, defense lacking
    9. Eagles…… Wentz durability?? Comeback needed for Redskins??

    The rest won’t matter come January unless Watson survives until then.

  11. Cowboys are ranked high because they beat up on a 4 and 12 last place team??? Anybody care to explain??? And the Steelers are ranked way too high as well!!!

  12. Maybe, there is something we don’t know about AP? The coach wouldn’t be that clueless, would he???

  13. 9. Packers (1-0; No. 16): The “audible thing” provided good cover for the fact that the defense appears to be significantly improved.
    >>>>><<<<<<<
    It only provided cover for those easily manipulated and gullible.

  14. Andy Dalton throwing for a career-high 418 in Seattle in his 9th season is, I think by definition, over-achieving.

  15. The Eagles barely beat Washington (ranked 30 by you) and you rank them 3? Great logic!
    Based on week 1 here are the correct top 5 rankings.
    1. Patriots
    2. Chiefs
    3. Vikings
    4. Cowboys
    5. Rams

    Again, this is based on week 1. Seattle nearly lost to the Bengals at home…c’mon man!

    _______________________________________________________________________________

    The Giants were 5-11 not 4-12 and the Chiefs beat up Jacksonville who was also(5-11) last year so does that make them not worthy of a #2 ranking??

  17. As a Pats fan, I almost feel bad for the Dolphins as the Pats could score a 100 on them. Then I remember how petulant Shula and the rest of the “perfect season” guys are and get over it quick. Has any NFL team given up over 100 points in it’s first 2 games of the year?

  18. NFL, a game played by toxic masculine players but yet Gillette is ALL over those naming rights.Like when they would hand out free razor blade handles to the most toxic masculine people in the country, the United States Marines….hypocrites.

  19. 18. Bills (1-0; No. 20): Bills fans should be contributing to Kaare Vedvick’s foundation.

    _______________________________________________________

    Vedvick let them win the game as it happened. But that team suffered from some crazy bounce luck and first week mistakes. A fumbled snap that never reached the QB. A pick 6 that hit a WR in the chest at the ground and bounced straight up into a LBs hands. For as bad as the stat line looks, the Bills outplayed the Jets all day and in every phase. The kind of mistakes the Bills gift wrapped the Jets arent the kind of things that will happen regularly if at all again.The Bills might have something going on here………..as long as they give Devin Singletary the ball before the 4th quarter

  20. 16. Browns (0-1)
    23. Bengals (0-1)

    Bengals played without their best playmaker (AJ Green), on the road, and lost by 1 point on a controversial fumble call.

    Browns got run-ruled at home. Remember, the Browns added OBJ, but they subtracted their best lineman (Zeitler) and their most proven coach (Williams).

  21. 28. Cardinals (0-0-1; No. 31): If someone had told Tramaine Brock not to try to catch a pass with his face, they’d be 1-0.

    If someone would’ve not called a timeout at the worst possible time possible, the Cardinals would be 0-1. They are lucky to be 0-0-1

    Pittsburgh still in Top 10?
    _____________________________

    Truth spoken.
    How is Pittsburgh even ranked in the top 20? They couldn’t score more than 3 lousy points against NE. Yet you have teams like the (21)Texans, Who barely lost to NO and (18)Buffalo, Who won their game and who’s Defense is top 3 in the league? The Bills Offense needs work, but they showed a heck of a lot more effort than Pittsburgh did vs New England.

  23. The Vikings finally figured out how to best use Kirk Cousins. As little as possible.

    Ding. Ding. That’s right!

    To drop Washington two spots after they hung in there with the #3 team in the #3 team’s house… just doesnt make much sense to me.
    ——————————————————————————————

    Washington lost 35-17… Washington got a garbage touchdown and Dallas stopped pressing halfway through the 3rd quarter cause they were in control..

    Dallas is stacked on both sides of the ball.. Im not a huge Dak supporter but he threw for 404 yards and 4 TD’s with no picks.. and they were not dink and dunk plays.. He threw the ball down the field. Daks perfromace also came at a time that Zeke was not on the field every play, he only ran 13 times.. so dont say washington was stacking the box trying to stop the run, and if they were.. Dak still killed them.

    Dallas is loaded everywhere except the head coach.

    Eagles barely got the by Redskins and are still rated higher than Dallas. Laughable.

    ——————————————————
    Most teams show rust coming out of the preseason, but it’s how you finish the game. Birds dominated the Redskins in the 2nd half in all phases, especially time of possession. That’s what championship teams do and that’s why they’re ranked #3.

  26. Here is my own 2 cents worth power ranking

    1. Patriots 2. Rams 3. Chiefs 4. Saints 5. Chargers 6. Packers 7. Vikings 8. Eagles 9. 49ers 10. Cowboys 11. Ravens 12. Titans 13. SeaDorks 14. Texans 15. Steelers 16. Panthers 17. Bears 18. Browns
    19. Cardinals 20. Raiders 21. Falcons 22. Bengals 23. Lions 24. Colts 25. Bills 26. Broncos 27. Jaguars 28. Bucs 29. Redskins 30. Jets 31. Giants 32. Dolphins.

    Jaguars would have been ranked higher if they did not lose Nick Foles, possibly for the rest of the season. Ranking is not just based on game 1 results but also projected finish after 16 games.

    ___________

    I agree, the only way the Packers beat the Vikings is if the Vikings are overconfident. Yes, I’m sure a new head coach in his second game is likely to out-coach the guy with the best record in the NFC since he became a head coach five years ago. Right, nobody can name more than five Vikings, unless they’ve been watching football.

    Now let’s name all the Packers we can:

    1. Aaron Rodgers
    2. Davante Adams
    3. Is Jordy Nelson still on the team?
    4. That left tackle with the weird name.
    5. …

  28. So Dak Prescott deserves all the credit in the world for beating the Giants, but Lamar Jackson don’t because of the Dolphins? Andy Dalton complete 68% of his passes for 418 yards 2 touchdowns and 0 interceptions in Seattle without AJ Green and 2 starting offensive linemen; and your conclusion is that he showed that he will continue to underachieve.

    Do you even watch or understand football?

  29. the Dolphins might be the first team to have ever gone undefeated one year (72) and not win a single game in another.

  30. It’s pretty funny to read some of the PFT posters losing their minds over the Cowboys being “ranked” at #4. The Cowboys did exactly what they were supposed to do – easily dispose of an inferior team. Heck, they pulled multiple starters in the 4th quarter and the game wasn’t as close as the score indicates.

  31. You have a future HOFer on your team, so you rub his face in the dirt? Washington couldn’t spell ‘class’ if you spotted them the ‘c’ and the ‘l’. Dumb!

  32. If someone had done their job and actually called the holding penalty on Reilly Reiff when he pulled Terrelle Suggs down by his left shoulderpad from behind (allowing Stafford to stay upright and throw a TD pass), then the Cardinals would be 1-0.

    —-
    The cowboys beat their 31st ranked team who was 4-12 last year and didnt even try to feed their best player the ball. I saw one good throw from dak on sunday. The rest erre blown coverages. Even that 1st td pass to the TE who was wide open was a poor throw. He threw it behind him and the TE had to jump up and spin around to make the catch. That td to cooper was a nice pass though. I’ll give him that.

  34. And if they had the eagles already ranked higher than dallas to begin with, what makes you think that a cowboys win over the 31st ranked giants should justify dallas leap frogging philly?

  35. Normally I’d take this opportunity to comment on the Vikings being too high, but then I saw you placed the Texans at 21.

    Way to low, that team has the potential to be the sleeper of the season (provided they can get Hopkins to remember this is football and not WWE).

  36. If someone had done their job and actually called the holding penalty on Reilly Reiff when he pulled Terrelle Suggs down by his left shoulderpad from behind (allowing Stafford to stay upright and throw a TD pass), then the Cardinals would be 1-0.

    Reilly Reiff…what is this 2015? Dude hasn’t played for the Lions in a while man LOL
    Now as a decade-long Lions fan, I’m rarely surprised by the new and exciting ways they find to lose a huge 4th-quarter lead, but doing so by a penalty called on an ex-player would be something!

  37. I’m not saying the Redskins are good. I’m saying they’re better than people think. They’ve had 7, 8, or 9 wins each of the last four years. That’s about what they are. Not exactly good, but also not 30th.

    After beating Appalachian State? They gotta play a defense sooner or later.

  41. The Bears and Packers are two prime examples WHY starters should play in the preseason, at least a quarter. Hopefully it won’t take those 4 lost preseason games for them to get back into football shape. SKOL.

    If the Packers score 10 points this Sunday, I would bet the Vikings win the game.
    I wouldn’t be so smug to think that scoring 10 points is a good thing.

  45. hailtothenamechange you are sooo right! they rank them low because everybody hates them,their owner and their GM the often try to make this team the worst in NFL history!

  46. All this shade thrown at Lamar Jackson and the Ravens. Lets see how Brady, Big Ben, Mayfield, and Rivers does against the Dolphins. They should easily put up 70+ points and 6+ TDs against “Appalachian State”. I can’t wait to see the excuses fly if Miami hangs with NE Sunday. “Miami always plays NE tough”, “They were motivated after being embarrassed”, etc…..etc…..etc.

  47. I know Florio really wants to name this Patriots Football talk but 2007? Because they beat a Steeler team I had at 6-10 this year? Puhleez..

    As a Browns fan though…love the comment! And 100% right.

  48. “Normally I’d take this opportunity to comment on the Vikings being too high”

    ========
    I will do it for you. The Vikings are too high, but you need to remember that the person that made this rankings is a Barney.

    I look forward to the game in Lambeau Sunday. I like the chances of him being forced to rank the Vikings no higher than the low teens next week.

    Vikings fans sure are stupid. Like, a new level of stupid that could possibly be the missing link between ape and man.

    Packers 20, Vikings 9
    ===============================================================
    You and your Packer fan cohorts talk a lot of smack considering that the Packers are 1-5-1 in their last seven games against the Vikings.

  55. I was expecting the Ravens to be higher and the Jets and Bills to be lower.

    +++++++++++++++++++

    This Bills defense had probably the best week of any team given the mistakes the offense was making in the first half. I think at one point they had only given up 6 points total after they had already conceded at least 3 turnovers. Yes the Jets are so so, but they got Robbie Anderson and Levian Bell.. They also got a QB who Jets fans swore was Joey Namath after the first couple games last year.

  56. What Florio didn’t say was that the Pats lapped all of the teams and are listed as double #1. They won the game AND sucked the soul out of Pittsburgh. Not only that, they have dominated the minds and emotions of the salty tears haters out there AGAIN with yet another weapon picked up (although… I am really on the fence about AB in NE)

    1-0.

  59. First game of the year…and while you want to win so that unfortunate loss doesn’t come back to haunt you later in the year, losing the first game where the offense is rusty or whatever doesn’t necessarily predict the season.

    Today and yesterday are the top days of the year for overreactions. Lots of football left to play.

  60. Maybe it is just me but it seems like the league is very top-heavy this year. There are about 8 or 9 teams that are very good and have a legitimate chance at winning the super bowl, where every other year, it is 4 or 5 tops

  61. The Dolphins, Jets, and Bills are all ranked too high.
    The Patriots are ranked too low.

    My predictions for the AFC East: Pats 16-0, Jets 3-13, Bills 3-13, Dolphins 0-16. And I’m being kind to the Bills and Jets, who both suck just as bad as that Miami high school squad that masquerades as an NFL team. And yes, Clemson would kill Miami at this point (so would Alabama, so would Georgia).

    Last I checked the Pats were a 17.5 point favorite over Miami for next Sunday. Honestly, if it’s less than 28 points I’d still take the Pats. And the over/under on that game ought to be like 65, with 62 of those points coming from Brady and Brown and company.

    And let’s be honest, and just give New England the Lombardi Trophy now and save the obvious from happening (again). The only difference between this year and ’07 is that there will be no Eli Manning and the Giants to shock the world in the Super Bowl.

    Vikings fans sure are stupid. Like, a new level of stupid that could possibly be the missing link between ape and man.

    Packers 20, Vikings 9
    ————————-
    Points?
    How is this possible on a bye week?

  64. The Texans are a potential playoff team and would easily beat at least 15 of the teams ahead of them.
    Yet you have them at 21….you know the old saying,garbage in equals garbage out.

  65. First time poster. Had to just say the Cleveland Browns that still have proven nothing in years should never be that high in these rankings. It’s absurd. They might lose to the Jets. They keep failing again this season then maybe they should call up Kevin Costner to run the draft. They can’t do much worse. Even the Bengals in their own division maybe be as underrated a team this season than how overrated the Browns will continue to be. What’s that term, Fake something these kids use today? One good piece of news. Their hot shot new wr is using a watch again this week. So upset that my team didn’t get either Heckle or Jeckle this offseason. Actually I prayed every day we didn’t get these two undisciplined replaceable players that will cause more trouble then they are worth. That’s a better guaranteed bet that New England winning the AFC Least Again. Don’t be fooled despite losing their first games. The Steelers and Giants didn’t really lose they have gained. And the Bears are again given too much love. But then again that’s been the case since 1985. Enjoy the games on the field,everyone.

  66. And we all know what happened in 2007, right?
    the Patriots blow their perfect season in the Super Bowl.
    ———————————————————————
    Yeah, like going 18-1 is a huge black mark.
    —————————————————
    How is Pittsburgh even ranked in the top 20? They couldn’t score more than 3 lousy points against NE.
    —————————————————————————
    Same as the mighty Rams offense in the SBowl, After averaging 33/gm.

    —————————————————————————
    Patriots Schedule the next 7 weeks:

    It doesn’t matter whom the Pats play

  67. It’s not surprising that a Packers fan believes in evolution.
    I expect a good game. Field position is key for the Vikings. Rodgers is still a very good QB… run the ball and have Cousins get the ball out quickly.
    Vikings 24
    Packers 20

    To drop Washington two spots after they hung in there with the #3 team in the #3 team’s house… just doesnt make much sense to me.
    ——————————————————-

    Washington got outscored 25-7 in the second half, choked away a big lead. How is that hanging with someone when they blew a 13 point lead, gave up 25 unanswered second half points? Would’ve been a second half shutout had the Redskins not scored with under 10 seconds left. This is why Jay Gruden is one of the worst coaches in the game. Horribly coached team in the second half. They went into the locker room up 20-7, Eagles couldn’t do anything Redskins acted like the game was over and then they had no answer for the Eagles in the final 2 quarters.

  69. It’s not surprising that a Packers fan believes in evolution.

    Is that a compliment or the most ironically hilarious insult ever? We also believe in gravity, and a spherical earth and a sun centered solar system and lots of other neat things that science has conclusively proven.

  70. It’s not surprising that Vikings fans believe in…

    the Vikings.

    They’re delusional and don’t understand that six decades of evidence proves they’re a terrible, loser franchise.

  71. Hey El Guapo…. Reiff is in Minnesota. Third year there. The tackles are Decker and Wagner. Did you really watch the game?
    ————-
    Yes I did. Funny how you didn’t try to negate the fact that it was Terrell Suggs in the backfield and that the Lions LT clearly held him. I guess I was wrong about naming Detroit’s left tackle. For all future Lions holding penalties, we’ll be sure to assume it was walking turnstile Taylor Decker.

  72. The Browns not being in the bottom few spots is testimony to the name value of their players – not the actual play of their players. Or coaching of their coaches.

  73. Pkrlvr…
    You actually believe man came from apes?
    That’s hilarious… and absurd.
    Science hasn’t proven it. Look it up. Let me know what you find out

  74. I don’t put much stock in these rankings as they never make sense. It’s a bunch of amateurs stating their opinions, which mean nothing. As a fan of the Vikings who just completely dominated a typically high powered Falcons team, I’ll let the boys take care of their own power rankings.

  75. t there really isn’t that much great talent in Minnesota. No one can name more than about five of their players

    ——-

    That’s about 4 more than anyone can name on the Packers.

    Packers would lose to 10-29 on this list…

    Vikings would lose to 1-7 and 9-32

  78. Apparently the “secret” to Kliff Kingsbury’s revolutionary offense is to play like stale garbage for three quarters while everybody else does the work competing and then come out at the last minute when everybody else is worn out (pretty much on both teams except for your offense) and pull a “miracle” to save the day with a tie! Cards deserve to be fighting for last place, they are overrated (if you watched the game), and Steve Keim deserves to be fired for not fixing the 0-line.

  79. Seattle squeaks out a win at home against a mediocre team, yielding 400+ yards of passing to Andy Dalton, and from that we can conclude they are the 6th best team in the NFL. Okey Dokey. Got it.

  80. Been a minute since Russ Wilson did some magic things. Still waiting

    Defense looked like a bright spot, til Dalton dropped 400 yds on them.

    If Seahawks deserve top 10 right now, the league is in worse shape than I thought.

  81. I don’t disagree with your top-10 but at this point in the season ALL the 1-0 teams should be ranked above the 0-1 teams. This is a weekly rating and you only have one week to judge them on. the sample size is just to small to do it any other way.

    Did you see the Bears, Steelers, Colts, Browns, & Jags play? I would take the Bills, 49ers or Raiders to beat any of those teams right now.

    Bengals at #29 LOSE and move UP 6 spots to #23? The logic is… wait, maybe logic is the wrong word… misprint maybe?
    ________________________________________________

    You obviously did not watch the game. They started out ranked way lower than they should have because no one cares to do any real research. Then they outplayed the Seahawks IN SEATTLE where they haven’t lost a home opener in over a decade. Their defense held Seattle to less than 250 yards of offense while racking up almost 450. So yeah, you can LOSE and move UP just as easily other teams (i.e. the Broncos) who played awful can lose only two spots.
