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!

Is the NFC/AFC tide turning? The AFC has dominated play for the last decade, but the Saints’ Super Bowl victory over Indianapolis last February could be a sing that the NFC is back on top.

The top two teams in this seasons power rankings reside in the NFC, and the AFC’s top teams all seem to have issues.

NFL Power Rankings

Green Bay Packers (1-0) – Last year the defense spent half a season learning on the job. Won’t be an issue this season.

New Orleans Saints (1-0) – It’s time for WhoDat Nation to start giving corners Jabari Greer and Tracy Porter some love.

New England Patriots (1-0) – Rookie tight ends Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez give the offense a different look.

Baltimore Ravens (1-0) – With Cincy limping, Pittsburgh QB-less and Cleveland being Cleveland, where is the competition coming from in the NFC North?

Indianapolis Colts (0-1) – Looks like the warranty has elapsed on Bob Sanders, one of NFL’s best safeties over the last decade.

Houston Texans (1-0) – The defensive line has taken a hit with the season-ending ankle injury suffered by Connor Barwin.

Pittsburgh Steelers (1-0) – Defense, Rashard Mendenhall’s running will keep them dry until Roethlisberger gets back.

New York Giants (1-0) – Eli is healthy again, but these guys will live and die with the run – even in a passing league.

Arizona Cardinals (1-0) – Against the Rams, Larry Fitzgerald was targeted 15 times, with only three resulting in completions.

Dallas Cowboys (1-0) – Meet the cast: Dumb (Tony Romo), dumber (OC Jason Garrett) and dumbest (Wade Philips).

San Diego Chargers (0-1) – Every once in a while Philip Rivers needs to sit in a chair facing the corner.

Minnesota Vikings (0-1) – They sold their soul to Brett Favre, and the payment may be coming due sooner than expected.

Seattle Seahawks (1-0) – If the Poodle can win a few more, the muck from the USC scandals will start to wash off his pants and shoes.

Jacksonville Jaguars (1-0) – Jack De Rio, duct tape and bailing wire are keeping things together in one of the NFL’s smallest markets.

Washington Redskins (1-0) – Nice to see Clinton Portis is remembering to take his stupid pills.

Miami Dolphins (1-0) – Against Buffalo they ran three times to every two passes. That won’t fly too long in the pass-centric NFL.

Tennessee Titans (1-0) – Thankfully, talk of Albert Haynesworth 2.0 in Nashville seems to have receded.

Kansas City Chiefs (1-0) – Todd Haley may not be able to survive the season without enough valium to fill a small pickup truck.

New York Jets (0-1) – One loss made Rex Ryan more humble. Wonder what the big lug will be like after 7 or 8 of them.

hicago Bears (1-0) – The focus is on Jay Cutler and the passing game, but give credit to an improved offensive line.

Cincinnati Bengals (0-1) – Marvin Lewis just has to stop bringing in players that his personality makes it impossible for him to control.

San Francisco 49ers (0-1) – Is the offense really THAT bad? Probably not, but the loss to Seattle has stunned the team.

Philadelphia Eagles (0-1) – Reid says Kolb is still the starter. We’ll see if he says the same thing if/when Vick shreds the Lions on Sunday.

Atlanta Falcons (0-1) – The offense stunk in the preseason, and failed to score a touchdown on opening day.

Denver Broncos (0-1) – Laurence Maroney would be more successful running behind Mike Shanahan’s zone blocking schemes.

Detroit Lions (0-1) — Lions say that Ndamukong Suh will be moved around on line in order to avoid double-teams.

Buffalo Bills (0-1) – The Bills couldn’t pass the ball against Miami even when the Fins stacked 8 players in the box.

Carolina Panthers (0-1) – In the NFL, life without a quarterback can be dark, cold and damp.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-0) – Except for Drew Brees and maybe Caron Palmer, Bucs don’t face a top-level QB all season.

St. Louis Rams (0-1) – Four winnable games in the next four weeks – Oakland, Washington, Seattle and Detroit.

Cleveland Browns (0-1) – With one touchdown pass and two interceptions, Jake Delhomme looks like he hasn’t lost a step.

Oakland Raiders (0-1) – Sorry, JaMarcus. Guess it wasn’t all your fault after all.
