Danny O'Neil's weekly NFL team Rankings

Danny's Power Rankings

Danny O'Neil's NFL Power Rankings | Week 2
Rank Team Comment
1 (1)Seattle SeahawksSeattle's post-Super Bowl motto has been amended from "What's Next?" to "What's Next (and will it at least be a little challenging)?"
2 (2)San Francisco 49ersSure, San Francisco looked good in the season opener, but that was against an FCS creampuff of an opponent in Dallas.
3 (4)Denver BroncosThe Broncos have plenty of horsepower even with Wes Welker absent.
4 (7)Philadelphia EaglesLeSean McCoy's tips are way too cheap to ever make him a good golf pro. Twenty cents? On a $61 bill? That's sooooo Shady!
5 (11)Cincinnati BengalsForget a Super Bowl to validate Andy Dalton, how about winning a playoff game? Just one. That would be a start.
6 (3)New Orleans SaintsIf Week 1 was a test for New Orleans' new defense, the Falcons passed prolifically, which means New Orleans failed.
7 (5)New England PatriotsNew England suffered a season-opening loss for the first time in 11 years.
8 (15)Carolina PanthersCam Newton penned his second law of physics last week: A QB in motion set to rest after suffering bruised ribs.
9 (6)Green Bay PackersSeven days after steering entirely clear of Richard Sherman's side, Aaron Rodgers is still insisting he sees the field as half full.
10 (14)Detroit LionsIt's so cute to see the Lions all excited over a season-opening win. They've been 1-0 the previous three years, too, you know!
11 (18)Miami DolphinsMarino or Moreno? To-may-toe or to-mah-toe, right? New Dolphins running back Knowshon is leading the league in rushing after Week 1.
12 (21)Atlanta FalconsMatt Ryan threw for 448 yards in Week 1, most of any quarterback in the league, and the Falcons needed every one of them.
13 (20)Pittsburgh SteelersSteel softening? Pittsburgh gave up 183 yards rushing last week and two touchdowns. To the Browns.
14 (16)Arizona CardinalsCarson Palmer, the man with two last names to go with his two playoff games and a lifetime of riches.
15 (8)Indianapolis ColtsAndrew Luck is finding out what would have happened to John Elway had he signed with the team that initially drafted him. No supporting cast.
16 (17)New York JetsWalk, don't run. That's not an order when you're playing the Jets so much as a reality against that stout run defense.
17 (25)Minnesota VikingsNew coach Mike Zimmer is feeling like a king with his Cassel after Week 1. Unfortunately, that Cassel is going to crumble.
18 (29)Buffalo BillsThe Bills are 1-0 for only the second time in the past seven seasons.
19 (28)Tennessee TitansWith Bishop Sankey running the ball and Jake Locker throwing it, the Titans are a lock for the Holiday Bowl this year.
20 (30)San Diego ChargersSome rivers run fast. San Diego's Rivers, however, runs slowly. Very, very slowly.
21 (13)Chicago BearsOnly three words are necessary to describe how miserable Jay Cutler's performance was in a Week-1 home loss to Buffalo: Worse than Romo?
22 (19)Houston TexansTurn down for Watt? Somewhere, Mariners reliever Tom Wilhelmsen started dancing. Maybe Rick Waits, too.
23 (10)Baltimore RavensLast week's loss is the least of the Ravens' concerns at this point.
24 (12)New York GiantsSomewhere, Tom Coughlin is rolling over in his grave after Monday's offensive performance in Detroit.
25 (9)Kansas City ChiefsAlex Smith has a new contract. So does Jamaal Charles. But based on Week 1, that doesn't look like good news, Kansas City.
26 (22)Tampa Bay BuccaneersForget about where the Bucs stop, they didn't get started on Sunday. Tampa Bay was shut out until fourth quarter against Carolina.
27 (23)Washington RedskinsHow does a friendly German welcome you to a conversation with Washington's new head coach? Guten tag to the Gruden talk, of course.
28 (27)Jacksonville JaguarsThe Seahawks so good they're the only franchise whose JV team -- the Jaguars -- also plays in the NFL.
29 (32)Cleveland BrownsThe Browns are used to being kicked around, just not so literally as when Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown played soccer with the head of Cleveland's punter.
30 (24)Dallas CowboysSmell that? That's the distinct whiff of 4-12, a.k.a. the cow pie that Dallas is fixing to lay this season.
31 (31)Oakland RaidersThe Raiders franchise is reduced to celebrating small victories. Very small. Like the fact they're not last in the power rankings.
32 (26)St. Louis RamsThe Rams have announced a new experience to boost attendance: Buy a ticket and you'll get to play quarterback for a series.
