Power Rankings (week 2)

September 11, 2013 by Steel Haven

Rnk LW* Team Record Comments
1. 1. Denver Broncos 1-0 Manning is the first QB since Kapp in '69 to throw for 7 TDs in a game.
2. 5. San Francisco 49ers 1-0 Rapport between Kaepernick and Boldin was instantaneous.
3. 3. Seattle Seahawks 1-0 Escaped from the East coast with a win.
4. 10. New Orleans Saints 1-0 Return of Payton was triumphant.
5. 7. Houston Texans 1-0 Scored 24 unanswered second half points to steal the final game of the opening weekend.
6. 6. New England Patriots 1-0 Needed last second field goal to beat the Bills while losing more offensive talent in Vereen and Amendola to injury.
7. 2. Green Bay Packers 0-1 Can't beat the Niners.
8. 4. Atlanta Falcons 0-1 The Superdome is Ryan's kryptonite.
9. 13. Chicago Bears 1-0 Overcame 11 point deficit in the third quarter thanks to Bengals mistakes to win Trestman's debut.
10. 14. Indianapolis Colts 1-0 Got ahead early, let the Raiders back in the game and then won late. Sort of a carbon copy of most of their wins last season.
11. 17. Dallas Cowboys 1-0 Forced turnovers on the Giants first 3 drives to build an insurmountable lead.
12. 8. Cincinnati Bengals 0-1 Tied for first, tied for last in the only division that couldn't manage a win on the opening weekend.
13. 18. St. Louis Rams 1-0 Bradford stepped up as running game struggled. Interesting to see whether Fisher can overcome the lack of a true feature back.
14. 22. Detriot Lions 1-0 Suh continues to solidify his reputation as the dirtiest player in the league.
15. 26. Philadelphia Eagles 1-0 Can they stay healthy playing at Kelly's frenetic pace?
16. 9. Baltimore Ravens 0-1 Attempt to replace 7 defensive starters didn't go smoothly in high altitude.
17. 11. New York Giants 0-1 Unsurprisingly couldn't overcome 6 turnovers.
18. 12. Washington Redskins 0-1 Done in by slow start from RGIII.
19. 21. Kansas City Chiefs 1-0 Looked like a different team with Reid at the helm, Smith behind center.
20. 15. Minnesota Vikings 0-1 Purple Jesus giveth, Ponder taketh away.
21. 24. Tennessee Titans 1-0 Got early dividends from $100 million spent on free agents in the offseason.
22. 16. Pittsburgh Steelers 0-1 Lost their home opener for the first time since 2002.
23. 25. Miami Dolphins 1-0 Tannehill appears poised to take the next step.
24. 20. Carolina Panthers 0-1 Newton was held to 163 yards total offense, only 125 through the air.
25. 23. Arizona Cardinals 0-1 Blew a 10 point fourth quarter lead at home.
26. 31. New York Jets 1-0 Ryan's hot seat got a little cooler thanks to dominating defense.
27. 19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-1 David committed perhaps the stupidest penalty of all time on a late hit of Smith out of bounds with under 10 seconds remaining to set up Folk for a 48 yard game winning FG.
28. 29. Buffalo Bills 0-1 Fought hard against the Patriots, but in the end lost their 19th in the last 20 matchups.
29. 27. Cleveland Browns 0-1 Talk of Weeden turning things around with offensive coordinator Turner was premature.
30. 28. San Diego Chargers 0-1 Still figured out a way to collapse in the fourth quarter despite Turner firing.
31. 32. Oakland Raiders 0-1 Pryor's versatility at least gives them a puncher's chance on a weekly basis.
32. 30. Jacksonville Jaguars 0-1 Gabbert and offense is so dismal that signing Tebow to appease the fan base might not be the worst idea.
