NFL Power Rankings: Week Two

Welcome to the first MSF Power Rankings of the 2011 NFL Season!

You may have noticed that we are starting after Week 1, and there is a good reason for that. My Preseason rankings would have been awful. Just a peak into what I originally had: Colts at 14 (Before the Peyton news), Bears at 21, Chiefs at 11, Steelers at 2, and the Bills at 30.

Thank goodness I waited. Now off to the rankings after actually watching the teams play.

If you missed the $250 MSF Week 1 Freeroll Challenge at FanDuel, shame on you.

NFL Week 2 Power Rankings

1. Green Bay Packers 1-0
They looked absolutely dominant and unstoppable on Thursday night, and that scares the shit out of me.

2. New England Patriots 1-0
They looked absolutely dominant and unstoppable on Monday night, and that scares the shit out of me.

3. Baltimore Ravens 1-0
Beat the Steelers by 28 and force seven turnovers? When are Ray Lewis and Ed Reed going to get old?

4. Philadelphia Eagles 1-0
Don’t worry about that whole getting to know each other process, Mike Vick is still their quarterback

5. New York Jets 1-0
Still a tough team, but too bad they can’t play Tony Romo each week

6. New Orleans Saints 0-1
The best winless team in the league. Can’t wait until they meet up with the Packers again in January.

7. San Diego Chargers 1-0
They struggled against Minnesota, but the AFC West looks very winnable after this week.

8. Houston Texans 1-0
This team could win 5 games and still win their division. Scheduling the Colts as a warm up game was a nice move as they get ready to start the season.

9. Detroit Lions 1-0
I thought the Lions would be good, but not that good. Maybe they are a playoff team after all.

10. Chicago Bears 1-0
The Bears sure looked like a playoff team too. Time to announce the NFC North as the NFL’s best division.

11. Dallas Cowboys 0-1
If wins and Starter caps could win games, Tony Romo would literally be golden by now. Alas, this is not the case.

12. Buffalo Bills 1-0
When you open up the season and absolutely destroy a playoff team from the year prior, you will get some attention. Looking at you Ryan Fitzpatrick.

13. Oakland Raiders 1-0
Darren McFadden sure is fun, right Broncos fans?

14. Atlanta Falcons 0-1
Bad luck contributed more to the Falcons 12 points on Sunday than anything, but even then they didn’t look like a playoff team.

15. Pittsburgh Steelers 0-1
The Steelers looked like what everyone expected the Bears and Ravens to look like: old.

16. Miami Dolphins 0-1
Maybe Chad Henne isn’t awful after all. Dare we say he…dominates? [Editor’s note: Not as much as Jay Cutler, but yes.]

17. Arizona Cardinals 1-0
If Patrick Peterson can start playing defense like he returns punts, he’ll make DRC an afterthought.

18. Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0-1
The Buccaneers didn’t look that great, but what if Detroit is just that good? We’ll know more after they play the Vikings.

19. Washington Redskins 1-0
A win is great, but the Bears defense isn’t walking through that door to carry Rex and the gang to the NFC Championship

20. San Francisco 49ers 1-0
Ted Ginn for MVP!

21. St. Louis Rams 0-1
Far too many injuries for a team that wants to win their weak division

22. New York Giants 0-1
Are Giants fans allowed to become Jets fans? Something I would consider right now if I live in the NY area.

23. Denver Broncos 0-1
Tebow needs to get out of Denver, and Denver needs to figure out how to play offense.

24. Carolina Panthers 0-1
So Cam Newton looks good. How about the rest of the team?

25. Jacksonville Jaguars 1-0
Even with McCown as a quarterback, this team could win a few more games with a healthy MJD playing like that.

26. Cincinnati Bengals 1-0
Dalton to Green is about to become Ohio’s Montana to Rice. What that means I don’t know, but it sounds good.

27. Cleveland Browns 0-1
Poor Cleveland. They had a chance to show everyone that they could compete. Guess they can’t.

28. Seattle Seahawks 0-1
They had a chance late against San Francisco, but really how close can you be with Tarvaris Jackson at the helm?

29. Minnesota Vikings 0-1
On his current pace, it would take Donovan McNabb until Week 15 to catch Tom Brady’s passing total from Monday night.

30. Tennessee Titans 0-1
Better hope Chris Johnson gets on track, because CJ24 doesn’t quite have the same ring to it.

31. Indianapolis Colts 0-1
No surprise here, which is why it is so sad.

32. Kansas City Chiefs 0-1
Are they the worst team in the NFL? Probably not, but they sure played like it.
