With Week 2 of the season in the books, we’re starting to get a clearer look at the league.
The Los Angeles Rams, meanwhile, continued to take care of their business with another dominant win. In every facet, the Rams are looking like world-beaters and every bit worth the ‘super team’ tag they were bestowed after a busy offseason.
Check out our power rankings heading into Week 3 below.
1. Los Angeles Rams
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 3
Their wins have come against fairly easy opponents, but it’s hard to ignore just how dominant they’ve been on both sides of the ball.
2. Jacksonville Jaguars
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 6
They made a statement with their win over New England as Blake Bortles’ performance was hugely encouraging for their Super Bowl hopes.
3. Minnesota Vikings
Record: 1-0-1 | Last week: 4
Kirk Cousins showed in Week 2 why he was worth his monster contract as he brought the Vikings back to keep them unbeaten.
4. Kansas City Chiefs
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 7
Their offence has been dazzling as Patrick Mahomes has yet to display his inexperience, looking like an early MVP candidate.
5. Green Bay Packers
Record: 1-0-1 | Last week: 5
They should have won the NFC North clash, but it’s a good sign that they were in the position they were despite Aaron Rodgers not being 100 per cent.
6. New England Patriots
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 1
It’s clear they have some things to figure out, especially on defence where they were absolutely shredded by Jacksonville.
7. Philadelphia Eagles
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 2
Carson Wentz’s return will undoubtedly help, but it won’t fix the defensive issues they had against Tampa Bay.
8. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 18
While Ryan Fitzpatrick will cool off at some point, the offence could be for real considering the talent they have.
9. Atlanta Falcons
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 9
They were perfect in the red zone in Week 2 after disastrous results in the opener, so they’re certainly capable of turning around their woes there.
10. Cincinnati Bengals
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 23
Their offence is clicking and when Andy Dalton is playing like this, they’re a definite playoff contender.
11. Denver Broncos
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 16
Case Keenum hasn’t been stellar, but the defence has given the other side of the ball margin for error.
12. New Orleans Saints
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 10
They could just as easily be 0-2, but at least the defence was better in their second game than they were in the Week 1 debacle.
13. Los Angeles Chargers
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 13
While Buffalo isn’t the best opponent to gauge where a team is, the Chargers still looked impressive.
14. Carolina Panthers
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 11
After shutting down a lacklustre Dallas offence in Week 1, their defence wasn’t nearly as effective against Atlanta.
15. Pittsburgh Steelers
Record: 0-1-1 | Last week: 8
Kansas City are going to make many defences look bad this season, but the Steelers were especially a mess.
16. Miami Dolphins
Record: 2-0 | Last week: 16
The early season schedule is kind and gives the current AFC East leaders a chance to jump out to a strong start.
17. Baltimore Ravens
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 12
The absence of suspended cornerback Jimmy Smith was very evident in the secondary in their Week 2 loss.
18. San Francisco 49ers
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 17
They’ll get a serious test this week against Kansas City’s high-flying attack which should tell us more about where they are.
19. Chicago Bears
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 19
At some point, Mitchell Trubisky will have to do more heavy lifting if the Bears want to take the next step.
20. Dallas Cowboys
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 26
Dak Prescott and the offence needed that performance against the Giants, but they still have plenty to prove.
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 15
Was their surprising double-digit loss to Indianapolis an aberration or a sign of things to com
22. Houston Texans
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 14
Deshaun Watson doesn’t look comfortable at all behind an offensive line that is getting run over repeatedly.
23. Tennessee Titans
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 25
They had a nice bounce-back effort in Week 2 despite being without their starting quarterback.
24. Indianapolis Colts
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 30
They actually looked like a team instead of a one-man show reliant on the arm of Andrew Luck.
25. Seattle Seahawks
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 20
The defence is doing all that it can, but there’s just not enough surrounding Russell Wilson on the other side of the ball.
26. New York Jets
Record: 1-1 | Last week: 21
It will be interesting to see how they and Sam Darnold respond to a loss on a short week.
27. Cleveland Browns
Record: 0-1-1 | Last week: 29
They’re this close to being 2-0 and a breakthrough should be on the way, but they have to finish games.
28. New York Giants
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 22
Their offensive weapons are mostly going to waste and something has to change if they don’t want a repeat of last year.
29. Oakland Raiders
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 28
It’s funny, they could really use a dynamic pass rusher, kind of like the one they just let go.
30. Detroit Lions
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 27
With the way their defence, has looked, it’s almost inevitable that they’ll be 0-3 after facing Tom Brady.
31. Arizona Cardinals
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 31
Sam Bradford has been even worse than expected as their offence has lacked any semblance of pop.
32. Buffalo Bills
Record: 0-2 | Last week: 32
Josh Allen was an improvement on Nathan Peterman, but that was a very low bar to clear.
