Doing NFL power rankings after just one week is probably a little bit silly, but it isn't as silly as doing them before the season (for whatever that's worth). Here is how I think the teams stack up after one week of play:
1. San Francisco 49ers
They looked to pick up right where they left off last season. Colin Kaepernick is scary good.
2. Denver Broncos
I declared Peyton Mannning done after the neck surgeries. I will take my crow well done, please.
3. Seattle Seahawks
They struggled with the lowly Panthers a little bit, but they will be just fine.
4. New England Patriots
They keep changing out the parts. Tom Brady keeps getting it done.
5. New Orleans Saints
Drew Brees is really good.
6. Houston Texans
Showed a lot last night in coming back from a huge deficit.
7. Green Bay Packers
Tough loss in week 1, but they won't be down long with that offense.
8. Atlanta Falcons
See comments on the Packers.
9. Chicago Bears
Jay Cutler chucks it around the yard with no concern for where it goes. It worked this week.
10. Cincinnati Bengals
Maybe we shouldn't crown them just yet.
11. Baltimore Ravens
Shaky start for the Super Bowl champs, but they will make some noise. (and I hate them)
12. Dallas Cowboys
Am I the only won that thought they were going to lose that game Sunday night until the clock hit 0?
13. Detroit Lions
A lot of weapons for Matthew Stafford this season. Can the defense stop anyone?
14. Indianapolis Colts
Struggled to beat the second worst team in the league.
15. Philadelphia Eagles
They are going to be so much fun to watch this year, but Michael Vick got hit a lot last night. Can he hold up?
16. St. Louis Rams
Jared Cook is the greatest tight end in the history of the league. #vomit
17. Kansas City Chiefs
There is a lot of talent up there, and Andy Reid will do a better job of using it correctly.
18. Washington Redskins
RG3 didn't look 100% for most of that game last night. Can he bounce back?
19. New York Giants
Why David Wilson? Why???!??!?
20. Minnesota Vikings
Adrian Peterson is good at running the football.
21. Tennessee Titans
Statement win to start the season.
22. Miami Dolphins
Bienvenido a Miami
23. Pittsburgh Steelers
They might be in for a free fall here.
24. Carolina Panthers
I hate Cam Newton.
25. New York Jets
Geno Smith played well. How long will that last?
26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
They snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
27. Arizona Cardinals
They finally found someone that can throw the ball to Larry Fitzgerald.
28. San Deigo Chargers
Thanks for nothing.
29. Buffalo Bills
Not a bad debut for E.J. Manuel.
30. Cleveland Browns
Brandon Weeden. Yeesh.
31. Oakland Raiders
At least we aren't the Jaguars....
32. Jacksonville Jaguars
But our helmets are really sparkly....
