Week 3 NFL Power Rankings: The Uh-Oh Edition


Rankings for Week 3 after the jump. Our average spot is 15.5, and we deserve that until we prove otherwise.'s "experts" ranked us at #17, despite Joe Theissman ranking us 7th, and Bucky Brooks 25th.

We've dropped 7 spots in ESPN's rankings, who puts us at 16.

Mistake-filled first two weeks are fueling those critics who predicted a big drop-off after a 13-3 season. (Kuharsky)

Yahoo! Sports  drops us 14 to #17, but gives good commentary.

How can such a terrific secondary look so helpless – and is it fair to say new defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil needs to figure that out very, very quickly?

Pro Football Weekly drops us 8 spots to #16

Not the way Super Bowl hopefuls laid out the blueprint.

CBS Sportsline drops us 14 spots to #21, wondering what happened to our feistiness.

They opened last season 10-0 and are staring 0-3 in the face with a trip this week to play the Jets. What happened to the defense? Where has all the nastiness gone?

Fox Sports still believes in us. They place us at #12.

NO WORRIES: Kerry Collins is acting like he can still bring it, even at age 86 or whatever. Plus, RB Chris Johnson is disgustingly good. TIME TO WORRY: Since their unlikely 10-0 start last season, the Titans are 3-6 (including their '08 playoff loss).

The Sporting News's Power Poll drops us 8 to #14, with the most true statement I have read.

Starting 0-2 is concerning. Their game at the Jets on Sunday is one they need badly.

What if Sports's unique "Power Predictions" surprisingly raises us 3 spots to #11.
