NFL Week 2 Power Rankings

2009 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.

NFL Power Rankings will be updated by Friday every week. Be sure to visit our home page for more articles and NFL analysis.

Its with this knowledge that we can then deliver to you The NFL Power Rankings!

Week 2 Power Rankings

This Week Last Week Record Comment
1 1 Pittsburgh 1–0 OK, he’s tough….but can Ben Roethlisberger survive getting whacked 8-10 times a game?
2 3 New York Giants 1–0 With this defense and running game, Manning doesn’t have to be good
3 2 New England 1–0 Obvious that offense will have to bail out a mediocre defense every week
4 4 Indianapolis 1–0 Colts are already in control of the AFC South
5 5 Philadelphia 1–0 If McNabb can’t go, the Eagles had Jeff Garcia sign on
6 6 Tennessee 0–1 Kerry Collins is just good enough to not screw things up
7 9 Atlanta 1–0 Looks like clear sailing for Falcons in a weakened NFC South
8 8 Baltimore 1–0 Vs. KC: 43 passes, 41 rushes….what’s going on here?
9 7 San Diego 1–0 Chargers will win the West; staying focused game to game is the concern
10 11 New Orleans 1–0 Not enough D to go deep in playoffs, but they’ll be fun to watch
11 12 New York Jets 1–0 Safe bet that Tom Brady was studying all those blitz schemes Jets used vs. Texans
12 13 Minnesota 1–0 Doesn’t get too dicey for Vikes and Favre until mid-October
13 17 Dallas 1–0 Biggest number was 0 (interceptions by Romo) vs. Bucs
14 19 Green Bay 1–0 Good sign when you can beat a decent opponent when your offense is at 75 percent efficiency
15 15 Arizona 0–1 Cardinals can forget about a cakewalk in the NFC West
16 16 Miami 0–1 Could get ugly: Indy at home this coming week, then at San Diego
17 14 Carolina 0–1 Same team as last year’s, but there’s something missing
18 18 Houston 0–1 Texans are in desperate need of a bye week
19 20 Washington 0–1 Defenses will overload line of scrimmage against risk-averse Redskin offense
20 21 Seattle 1–0 Interesting NFC West division game Sunday at San Francisco
21 10 Chicago 0–1 They lose to Pack; they lose Urlacher; and Pittsburgh is next
22 23 San Francisco 1–0 “I’m sorry, Mr. Crabtree. Mr. Singletary is in a meeting and can’t take your call.”
23 26 Jacksonville 0–1 Jags deserve credit on near-miss in Indy and are actually favored over Arizona
24 24 Buffalo 0–1 One fumble away from what would have been Bills’ biggest victory of the decade
25 25 Oakland 0–1 Outplayed San Diego for 59 minutes and 42 seconds
26 30 Denver 1–0 Josh McDaniels’s luck may be starting to change
27 27 St. Louis 0–1 Low expectations for Rams, and they met them
28 28 Detroit 0–1 Lions are on a pace to give up 720 points this season
29 29 Kansas City 0–1 Problems on the offensive line will take a toll every game
30 22 Cincinnati 0–1 Probably not a good idea for unlucky Bengals to hit the casino or buy lottery tickets any time soon
31 31 Cleveland 0–1 Mangini declined to say that Brady Quinn played QB against the Vikings
32 32 Tampa Bay 0–1 Hard to see how the Bucs move up
