Week Two NFL Power Rankings

We are off! Week one of the NFL season is officially in the books! We had a wild start to the season. It started with Buffalo Bills wiping the floor with the Super Bowl Champion Rams and ended with the Seattle Seahawks winning their Super Bowl this season by upsetting Russell Wilson and the Denver Broncos. And in between, there was all sorts of drama and action. We saw two over-time games, Patrick Mahomes did Patrick Mahomes things, Tyreek Hill shined in Miami, the Vikings made light work of the Packers, and Baker lost his revenge game against Cleveland. And the upsets! The Steelers with an overtime win over the Bengals, the Giants show big-time cajones late and upset the Titans in Tennesse, and the Matt Eberflus led Chicago Bears defeated the San Francisco 49ers in a wet game.

As far as the Power Rankings go. Week one is always subjective on how you rank. I don’t think teams like Seattle and Chicago are better than some of these one-loss teams but after week one they are 1-0 and therefore get that nod. And fuck, let me enjoy Da Bears in the top 16. I don’t expect that to be a regular occurrence.

Top 10

1.) Buffalo Bills

They laid the smack down on the Rams. The Bills are going to be a problem for the rest of the league. I don’t expect them to leave this top spot anytime soon. Josh Allen combined for 4 total TDs while Stephon Diggs and Gabriel Davis combined for 12 receptions, 210 yards, and 2 TDs. Look out NFL.

2.) Kansas City Chiefs

Tyreek who? Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs went to Arizona and put a beating on the Cardinals. Mahomes was dangerous in this game. He connected with 9 different receivers for 360 yards passing and 5 TDs. The Chiefs play the Chargers on Thursday night football this week.

3.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tom Brady is too old. Leonard Fournette is too fat. Well, they certainly told those people to fuck off week one. Brady’s arm looked great and Fournette rushed for 127 yards. Even Julio Jones looked like he had turned the clock back. The Bucs travel to New Orleans in week two.

4.) Los Angeles Chargers

The Chargers escaped a tough game with the division rival Raiders and a lot of that has to do with #10. Justin Herbert had a great game leading the offense with 3 TD passes on 279 yards passing. On the other side of the ball, new addition Khalil Mack made an instant impact with 3 sacks.

5.) Los Angeles Rams

Not much went right for the Rams, but they ran into a buzzsaw in the Bills. While Matthew Stafford had a poor game, Cooper Kupp’s numbers didn’t reflect it. Kupp caught 13 of his 15 targets for 128 yards and a score. The Rams have a get-right game with the Falcons coming up in week two.

6.) Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings had all this hype coming into the season and they didn’t disappoint. The offense looked great under first-year head coach Kevin O’Connell. It was balanced and Justin Jefferson was all over the place. JJ went off for 184 yards on 9 receptions with 2 TDs. The Vikings defense looked good too led by Jordan Hicks who was all over the field with 14 tackles.

7.) Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens handled their business on Sunday against the Jets. Lamar Jackson had 3 passing TDs including 2 to Devin Duvernay. The Ravens defense did a nice job keeping the Jets out of the end zone for most of the game.

8.) Philadelphia Eagles

A.J. Brown. Brown had a big debut for the birds, catching 10 balls for 155 yards. Jalen Hurts had a productive game. Hurts had 90 yards on the ground and a score and added 243 yards passing. The Eagles host the Vikings on Monday Night Football this week.

9.) Miami Dolphins

We found Tyreek! Look at that, both Mahomes and Tyreek have found success without each other and you love to see it. The Dolphins handled the New England Patriots with ease led by Tua Tagovailoa’s 270 yards passing and Tyreek Hill’s 8 receptions for 96 yards. The Dolphins have the Ravens coming up in week two.

10.) New Orleans Saints

The Saints were down 16 points in the 4th quarter against the Falcons but managed to go on a 17-0 run to end the quarter and win the game. Michael Thomas scored two 4th quarter TDs and Will Lutz hit a 51-yard FG for the win. Jameis Winston had an efficient game, passing for 269 yards and 2 TDs.
