NFL Power Rankings: Week 2
After a wild Week 1 that saw seven of last season's 12 playoff teams lose the power rankings have been shaken up . . .
1. New Orleans (1) – The Saints didn't lose in Week 1, so they don't lose top spot in the rankings
2. Baltimore (4) – Held off the Jets' lame offensive attack Monday. May not deserve No. 2 slot, but no one else does after Week 1.
3. Green Bay (5) – Got past Philly despite a mediocre game from Aaron Rodgers. Expect much better against Buffalo this week.
4. New England (8) – Wes Welker's knee is fine. If they get their defense in order, look out.
5.Houston (13) – The Texans have arrived and Arian Foster is leading the charge. Could they unseat the Colts in the AFC South?

6. Indianapolis (2) – Peyton Manning passes for over 400 yards and the Colts still lose. Sounds like the defense needs some work.
7. San Diego (3) – The Chargers don't need Vincent Jackson you say? Their Week 1 performance says otherwise right now.
8. NY Jets (7) – The Jets' defense looked good Monday, but their offense never showed up. Mark Sanchez looks scary bad right now.
9. Minnesota – The Vikings' pass attack was a mess in the opener. How long until Sidney Rice gets back?
10. Dallas (6)– The Cowboys just plain sucked in Week 1. Marc Colombo, you're needed on the offensive line ASAP.
11. San Francisco (10) – The 49ers, who are supposed to win the NFC West, didn't show up in Week 1. They better be ready for New Orleans on Monday night or be ready for Mike Singletary's wrath.
12. Pittsburgh (18) – The Steelers' defense got them a win in Week 1 so maybe they can stay afloat until Ben Roethlisberger returns.
13. Washington (21) – Maybe we shouldn't have counted out the Redskins so early. Need to prove Week 1 wasn't a fluke this week versus Houston.
14. Cincinnati (12) – If not for a strong second half in New England the Bengals would have fallen farther.
15. Atlanta (10) – Will a visit from the Cardinals wake up what was an inept Atlanta offense last week?
16. Miami (14) – Brandon Marshall caught eight balls for only 53 yards? The Dolphins' offense needs some work.
17. NY Giants (17) – The Giants' offense made short work of a shoddy Carolina defense. Let's see what happens against the Colts.
18. Tennessee (19) – If Chris Johnson and Tennessee can blow up the Steelers like they did the Raiders then we'll start to believe.
19. Philadelphia (15) – Kevin Kolb goes down and we've got a quarterback controversy brewing in Philly. Good luck with that, Andy Reid.
20. Chicago (20) – Don't get excited Chicago, you only barely beat the Lions - and if the rulebook weren't idiotic you wouldn't have even done that.
21. Kansas City (26) – The Chiefs lost people a ton of money on Monday night. I know, because I was one of them. Keep an eye on Jamaal Charles – he'll be a beast this season.
22. Arizona (16) – Larry Fitzgerald had 15 balls come his way on Sunday but he only had three catches. Nice arm you've got there, Derek Anderson.
23. Seattle (24) – If you bet on the Seahawks to cover the spread on Sunday you can make my picks for the rest of the season.
24. Jacksonville (27) – If the Jaguars can get solid play from their offensive line they might surprise a few people this season
25. Oakland (25) – The Raiders should have a chance at a win this week versus St. Louis. That won't be said too often this season, Raiders fans.
26. Carolina (23) – Jimmy Clausen may get to start sooner than expected if Matt Moore's head is still buzzing later this week.
27. Denver (22) – How many losses before Tim Tebow gets a crack at Kyle Orton's job?
28. Tampa Bay (30) – If they beat someone better than Cleveland then maybe I'd be excited. Maybe.
29. Cleveland (28) – The Browns couldn't beat Tampa Bay, and Jake Delhomme might be hurt. Same old in Cleveland.
30. Detroit (29) – Calvin Johnson's no-catch hurts, but losing Matt Stafford for who knows how long hurts even more.
31. St. Louis (32) – Apparently bringing Sam Bradford along slowly means getting him to throw 55 passes in his debut.
32. Buffalo (31) – Would they mind if I showed up to tailgate in Buffalo and left before the game got underway? Get the most betting options and fastest payouts of any sportsbook. Click here!
