NFL Week 2 Power Rankings

2011 NFL Football Power Ratings

Each week during the heart of the NFL season, and once or twice during the NFL Preseason, we’ll gather the troops around the roundtable and hash out the NFL Power rankings. We check out the stats, looks at the records, and, most importantly, we take a close, close look at the heart of each team.

We encourage you to come back each week and see how the NFL Power Rankings have changed.

Best performance Week 1 – Baltimore bending, folding and mutilating the Steelers.
Worst performance Week 1 – Colts and Steelers (tie). At least the Colts had an excuse.
Best game Week 2 – San Diego at New England. Gronkowski and Hernandez could develop into the best pair of tight ends ever.
Worst game Week 2 – Cleveland at Indianapolis. Colts getting 1.5 at home. Who would have thought that a month ago?

Green Bay Packers (1-0) – Hard to believe now that the Packers were life and death to just make the playoffs last season.

New England Patriots (1-0) – On Monday a Patriots-hater for the Boston Herald wrote that Tom Brady was too old to lead a team to the Super Bowl. A few hours later Brady threw for 517 yards.

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) – Playing in Baltimore is not for the faint of heart. Ravens defense has rare combination of speed, toughness and experience.

New York Jets (1-0) – Unlike Joan Rivers, Mark Sanchez gets better as the game goes on.

San Diego Chargers (1-0) – Chargers held Donovan McNabb to 28 passing yards in the opener. Brady may have more than that on his first pass this Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles (1-0) – Best sign from Week 1? That offensive line may not be as wobbly as everyone thought it might be.

Houston Texans (1-0) – OK, you’ve drawn to a straight flush. Don’t screw it up.

New Orleans Saints (0-1) – Don’t blame Mark Ingram and don’t blame the coach. The right side of the O-line got zero got schooled on that last play.

Chicago Bears (1-0) – So Bears safety Brandon Meriweather is with the Pats a few years back when they go to London to play the Buccaneers. When they get back Meriweather is asked about the trip, sightseeing etc. His comments fueled the following youtube video put together by a local radio program:

Detroit Lions (1-0) – Putting the cart firmly in front of the horse, with KC, Minnesota and Dallas next, it’s not hard to envision the Lions at 4-0 heading into an interesting home game against the Bears on Columbus Weekend.

Pittsburgh Steelers (0-1) – Mike Tomlin is not prone to panic, and the next two games – home vs. Seattle and at Indianapolis – are a nice firewall against a disastrous start.

Buffalo Bills (1-0) – Ralph, wake up! We won!

Dallas Cowboys (0-1) – You think Jerry Jones is grinding his teeth at night?

Atlanta Falcons (0-1) – Worst loss of the Matt Ryan Era, and now the Eagles come to town. Uh oh.

Indianapolis Colts (0-1) – Say goodnight, Gracie. Hard to believe that the Colts front office didn’t have a Plan B.

New York Giants (0-1) – Just a hunch, but I’m thinking that Eli and Plaxico will have issues this year.

Arizona Cardinals (1-0) – Cardinals had fewer first downs, fewer total yards, fewer completed passes and less time of possession than the Panthers. Not good signs. [soliloquy id=”82219″]

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (0-1) – LeGarrette Blout is already in me-mode, complaining about too-few touches in the opener against Detroit. But the Bucs actually moved the ball better when they used a spread offense.

Washington Redskins (1-0) – Redskins looked like an NFL team for the first time in a while, but it won’t be long before Grossman starts channeling his inner Tony Romo.

Miami Dolphins (0-1) – Dolphin offense controlled the ball for seven-plus minutes in the opening drive against New England. The other 53 weren’t much to write home about.

Minnesota Vikings (0-1) – Had they not gone the Favre route, whatever young QB they went with would be in his third year by now.

Seattle Seahawks (0-1) – No, those weren’t Discovery Bay seals making noises last Sunday. It was Seahawk fans groaning with every Tavaris Jackson turnover.

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0) – Flawed as this team is, it may have a puncher’s chance in the AFC South – assuming the Texans play like the Texans always do in big games.

Cincinnati Bengals (1-0) – Marvin Lewis is now admitting that he let things get out of control in previous years.

Tennessee Titans (0-1) – Troubled Kenny Britt scored two TDs in the loss to the Jaguars. Maybe he’d have less trouble off the field if the season was 12 months long? Nah.

Kansas City Chiefs (0-1) – Last year’s record and this year’s could produce a palindrome – 10-6, 6-10.

Oakland Raiders (1-0) – Fans fight. Players fight. Do they have a fight song?

San Francisco 49ers (1-0) – Before everyone in the Bay Area gets back on the Alex Smith bandwagon, remember that this is his 7th season. If he’s the real deal, or anything close, don’t you think you would have seen something by now?

Carolina Panthers (0-1) – Nice start for Newton, but next up is Green Bay and the Packers have had extra prep time.

St. Louis Rams (0-1) – Rams are already banged up, and they just don’t have enough depth to handle it.

Cleveland Browns (0-1) – Punter Richmond McGee had boots of 20, 28 and 30 yards on Sunday. Good thing he’s Mike Holgren’s nephew. He’s not? Coach wants to see you, kid. And bring your playbook.

Denver Broncos (0-1) – Kyle Orton is OK, but if he turns over the ball the Broncos are cooked.
