NFL Power Rankings Week 3: Eagles near top of league entering MNF originally appeared on NBC Sports Philadelphia

Week 2 is always one of the best weeks of any NFL season. It’s the Sunday where everyone collectively wonders “Are any of these teams any good?” These rankings will reflect that.

Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs excluded, of course.

On Sunday, the Baltimore Ravens blew a 21-point lead, the Los Angeles Rams nearly blew a 25-point lead, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled in New Orleans and the AFC South preseason favorites Indianapolis Colts lost again. in Jacksonville.

The San Francisco 49ers went back to .500, but probably lost quarterback Trey Lance for the season.

Meanwhile, Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers got back on track with a win over the Chicago Bears at Lambeau Field.

This is where each team sits after the Week 2 action.

32. Carolina Panthers (0-2): Matt Rhule is 5-16 in one-possession games since the beginning of 2020. Tell me he and Nebraska aren’t a perfect match

31 Atlanta Falcons (0-2): The universe couldn’t stand the Falcons coming back from a 28-3 deficit. The comeback had to stay short.

30. Seattle Seahawks (1-1): The Seahawks put four running backs on the field just to throw an interception was perfect. no notes

29. Tennessee Titans (0-2): This iteration of the Titans is over.

28 Washington Commanders (1-1): The commanders are who we thought they were. About how many games does Carson Wentz have left as the starting quarterback in the NFL? Six? eight? They can’t be many.

27. Indianapolis Colts (0-1-1): Jim Irsay is about to fire everyone.

26. Houston Texans (0-1-1): The Texans begged the Broncos to win Sunday’s game. Finally, the Mile High Ponies agreed. Texans aren’t ready to win anything yet.

25. Cleveland Browns (1-1): Brownie the Elf was unable to save the Browns from stepping in against the Jets.

24. New York Jets (1-1): Robert Saleh said he was going to keep receipts from everyone who made fun of jets. After erasing a 13-point lead in 92 seconds, it might be time to unleash some of them.

23 chicago bears (1-1): The Bears’ offense was impressive in the first series of the script. Year? Not much.

22. Las Vegas Raiders (0-2): Raiders owner Mark Davis earned his title when the Las Vegas Aces won the WNBA Championship on Sunday. No need to worry about Vegas’ massive choke job against the Cardinals until Tuesday at the earliest.

21. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1): The Jags get to be the top-ranked AFC South team because, well, they have a win.

20. New York Giants (2-0): I still don’t think the Giants are any good. But 2-0 is 2-0.

19 Detroit Lions (1-1): The Lions have scored 30 or more points in three straight games for the first time since 1997. Things could be changing in Detroit.

18. Cincinnati Bengals (0-2): The Bengals have been borderline atrocious in their first two games and still had a chance to win each of them. That’s something… I think.

17Arizona Cardinals (1-1): Kyler Murray, Byron Murphy and Isaiah Simmons could have saved the Cardinals’ season. However, there are still many problems in the desert.

16. Dallas Cowboys (1-1): Dak who? (This is a joke.)

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1): Mitchell Trubisky was the smart move when it looked like the defense could carry the Steelers to a playoff berth. With TJ Watt gone, it might be time for a spin with Kenny Pickett. The Steelers have nothing to lose.

14 New England Patriots (1-1): Gunner Olszewski said he wanted his old team to remember him. Instead, his mistake on special teams ended up giving New England a much-needed victory in Pittsburgh. Bill Belichick appreciates the gesture, Gunner.

13. New Orleans Saints (1-1): Bucs linebacker Devin White summed up Jameis Winston perfectly after Tampa Bay’s 20-10 victory in New Orleans: “We just knew he was going to give us the ball.”

12. Denver Broncos (1-1): Nathaniel Hackett might not have been ready for the big moment.

eleven San Francisco 49ers (1-1): Don’t defend Kyle Shanahan for constantly using franchise quarterback Trey Lance as a battering ram and injuring him. If Shanahan is that great at calling plays, you’d think he’d be able to engineer a way to use Lance’s athleticism without repeatedly running him into the defense.

10. Los Angeles Rams (1-1): The Rams avoided a colossal meltdown against the Falcons. But they’re still shaking off a Super Bowl hangover.

9. Green Bay Packers (1-1): Getting the ball to Aaron Jones seems to be a recipe for success.

8. Minnesota Vikings (1-1): Kirk Cousins ​​in prime time against not the Bears. He should have seen the egg coming.

7. Baltimore Ravens (1-1): Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle are still running free against the Ravens’ secondary.

6. Miami Dolphins (2-0): Mike McDaniel, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle could save Tua Tagovailoa’s career.

5. Los Angeles Chargers (1-1): Justin Herbert’s fractured rib cartilage is all that matters in Los Angeles. The good news is that the Chargers’ doctors have a good track record with chest injuries.

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-0): Tom Brady might want to reconsider retirement after seeing the Bucs’ offense struggle against a Saints defense that struggled with Marcus Mariota and the Falcons in Week 1.

3. philadelphia eagles (2-0): Jalen Hurts has gotten better every year since he was a freshman at Alabama. The eagles are going to have to pay that man.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0): Patrick Mahomes should take advantage of his luck Thursday night and head to Las Vegas. The Chargers dropped four alleged interceptions in Kansas City’s 27-24 victory.

1. Buffalo Bills (2-0): OK, the Bills could go 20-0.
