Danny's Power Rankings

Danny O'Neil's NFL Power Rankings | Week 3
Rank Team Comment
1 (3)Denver BroncosAs good as Peyton Manning is, he's only the third most famous white Bronco.
2 (1)Seattle SeahawksThe Seahawks' defense found itself up a Rivers last week, getting paddled.
3 (4)Philadelphia EaglesDarren Sproles? More like daring Sproles the way he weaved through Indianapolis' defense on Monday night.
4 (8)Carolina PanthersOnly the Texans have given up fewer points than the Panthers so far this season.
5 (2)San Francisco 49ersColin Kaepernick is now throwing interceptions to mediocre cornerbacks to prove that Richard Sherman isn't elite. (Submitted by Nate Barton, @Gantiz)
6 (7)New England PatriotsGiven recent developments in the UK, New England is grateful to have no Scotts on its roster.
7 (5)Cincinnati BengalsSorry, but we're going to remain suspicious until this team wins a playoff game.
8 (14)Arizona CardinalsBest in the NFC West ... for this week.
9 (20)San Diego ChargersAfter all these years, NFL defenses are still prone to leaving the Gates open, even if its just a crack. Antonio had three touchdowns vs. Seattle last week.
10 (9)Green Bay PackersGreen Bay had been outscored 57-19 before its 28-point rally against the New York Jets last week.
11 (18)Buffalo BillsBuffalo's Manuel transmission has the team at 2-0 for the first time in three years.
12 (10)Detroit LionsWow. Imagine that. Another Lions team whose consistency varies wildly from one week to the next. Shocking.
13 (23)Baltimore RavensThe Ravens averted disaster last week against Pittsburgh. Now we'll see how they do on the road.
14 (21)Chicago BearsFor once, Jay Cutler got to watch another quarterback melt down late in last week's win over San Francisco.
15 (12)Atlanta FalconsThe Falcons have gained the second-most yards in the league this season. That's good. They've also given up the most, which is bad.
16 (15)Indianapolis ColtsThe Colts have only been half bad this season. Those two bad halves have added up to an 0-2 start, though.
17 (11)Miami DolphinsThe only team from Florida that has won a game so far this season. So the Dolphins have that going for them. Which is nice.
18 (13)Pittsburgh SteelersPittsburgh's roster has gotten so old that dirt officially resents any comparison.
19 (16)New York JetsSame ol' Jets (Part 3,972): Their own timeout nullified what would have been a game-tying touchdown against Green Bay.
20 (22)Houston TexansWell, the Texans were 2-0 last season, too. So let's not go overboard with hailing their triumphant return to contention.
21 (27)Washington RedskinsCan someone in Detroit ask columnist Rob Parker if he thinks the Washington Epithets have a cornball Cousins at quarterback?
22 (6)New Orleans SaintsThis is one winless start the Saints can't blame on Roger Goodell. Besides, he's got enough issues as it is.
23 (17)Minnesota VikingsTwo words for anyone who says the Vikings only care about winning: Matt Cassel. (Submitted by Scott Humphreys)
24 (30)Dallas CowboysBad news in Texas: Tony Romo's back might be as tender as Tony Roma's ribs.
25 (25)Kansas City ChiefsFans may be seeing red after an 0-2 start, but that's better than the players, who are seeing Reid. A whole lot of Andy Reid, in fact.
26 (29)Cleveland BrownsJohnny Manziel is suffering from a little Hoyer paranoia with Brian 4-1 as Browns' starter.
27 (24)New York GiantsKnock, knock. Tom Coughlin: Who's there? Owen. Coughlin: Owen who? Owen two. Coughlin: Again?!
28 (19)Tennessee TitansTennessee beats Kansas City on the road, loses to Dallas at home. Go figure.
29 (32)St. Louis RamsThe Rams aren't going to find another Kurt Warner at quarterback, and at this point, they're desperate enough to try Curt Warner.
30 (28)Jacksonville JaguarsDoesn't matter your tolerance, two weeks worth of Henne is enough to make anyone's stomach turn.
31 (31)Oakland RaidersTracy Chapman would like this team, but only because it has a fast Carr. The rest of this roster is filled with clunkers.
32 (26)Tampa Bay BuccaneersThe Bucs' 0-2 record comes with an asterisk: *Lost to St. Louis. That's like being 0-5.
