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 the NFL seasons. It’s the Sunday where everyone collectively wonders “are these teams any good?” These rankings will reflect that.

Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs excepted, of course.

Sunday saw the Baltimore Ravens lead by 21 points, the Los Angeles Rams nearly gagged away a 25-point pillow, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers struggled in New Orleans and preseason AFC South favorite Indianapolis Colts lost again in Jacksonville.

The San Francisco 49ers came 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.

Here’s every team after the week 2 action.

32. Carolina Panthers (0-2): Matt Rhule is 5-16 in one ball games since early 2020. Tell me he and Nebraska are not a perfect match

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

30. Seattle Seahawks (1-1): The Seahawks putting four running backs on the field and then throwing 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. More/less than how many games Carson Wentz has left as a starting QB in the NFL? Six? eight? It can’t be many.

27. Indianapolis Foals (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 committed themselves. Texans aren’t ready to win anything yet.

25. Cleveland Browns (1-1): Brownie the Elf couldn’t stop the Browns from stepping up against the Jets.

24. New York Jets (1-1): Robert Saleh said he would keep the receipts of anyone who mocked the Jets. After clearing a 13-point lead in 92 seconds, it may be time to unleash a few.

23. Chicago Bears (1-1): Bears’ attack was impressive on the script’s first drive. After? Not so much.

22. Las Vegas Raiders (0-2): Raiders owner Mark Davis got his title when the Las Vegas Aces won the WNBA Championship on Sunday. You don’t have to worry about Vegas’ massive choking operation against the Cardinals until Tuesday at the earliest.

21. Jacksonville Jaguars (1-1): The Jags become the highest ranked AFC South team because, well, they won.

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 runs in three consecutive games for the first time since 1997. In Detroit, things could change.

18. Cincinnati Bengal (0-2): The Bengals were verging on abysmal in their first two games and still had a shot at winning each of them. That’s something… I think.

17. Arizona Cardinals (1-1): Kyler Murray, Byron Murphy and Isaiah Simmons might have saved the Cardinals’ season. Still many problems in the desert.

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

15. Pittsburgh Steelers (1-1): Mitchell Trubisky was the smart move when it looked like the defense could take the Steelers to a playoff spot. With TJ Watt gone, maybe it’s time to go for a spin with Kenny Pickett. Steelers have nothing to lose.

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

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

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

11. San Francisco 49ers (1-1): Don’t defend Kyle Shanahan for consistently using franchise QB Trey Lance as a battering ram and getting him injured. If Shanahan is such a genius play-caller, you’d think he could figure out a way to use Lance’s athleticism without putting him in the teeth of the defense repeatedly.

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

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

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

7. Baltimore Ravens (1-1): Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle still run 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 broken 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 may want to reconsider his retirement after seeing the Bucs attack against a defense of the Saints who had issues with Marcus Mariota and the Falcons in Week 1.

3. Philadelphia Eagles (2-0): Jalen Hurts has improved every year since he was a freshman at Alabama. Eagles will have to pay that man.

2. Kansas City Chiefs (2-0): Patrick Mahomes should take the luck he should have on Thursday night and go to Vegas. The Chargers dropped four possible interceptions in Kansas City’s 27-24 win.

1. Buffalo Bills (2-0): Okay, the bills could get to 20-0.
