NFL Week 2 Power Rankings

New, comments

A look at my power rankings and the various NFL power rankings from around the web.

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

Power rankings are ridiculous, especially after the first week of the season, but they are fun none the less. Below are my power rankings. Below that will be a round-up of where various outlets rank the Titans as they become available.

A small bit of commentary on my rankings- I base the rankings on how good I think the teams are, not necessarily their records. That is why you will see some 0-1 teams ranked higher than some 1-0 teams. That is only logical. Does anyone here really think the Bills are better than the Packers? No? That's what I thought.

1. Seattle Seahawks
2. Denver Broncos
3. Philadelphia Eagles
4. Atlanta Falcons
5. New Orleans Saints
6. Cincinnati Bengals
7. Green Bay Packers
8. San Francisco 49ers
9. Detroit Lions
10. New England Patriots
11. Carolina Panthers
12. Indianapolis Colts
13. Tennessee Titans
14. Pittsburgh Steelers
15. Arizona Cardinals
16. Miami Dolphins
17. San Diego Chargers
18. Baltimore Ravens
19. Kansas City Chiefs
20. Minnesota Vikings
21. New York Jets
22. Buffalo Bills
23. Chicago Bears
24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
25. Dallas Cowboys
26. New York Giants
27. Jacksonville Jaguars
28. Oakland Raiders
29. Houston Texans
30. Washington Redskins
31. Cleveland Browns
32. St. Louis Rams

SB Nation:

23. Jake Locker looked smooth, calculated and in control as he guided his team to a win at Kansas City, which isn't an easy place to play. The Titans dominated time of possession in this one 37:44 to 22:16 on the legs of Shonn Greene, Dexter McCluster and Bishop Sankey, and Locker targeted eight receivers in the passing game. The Titans picked off Alex Smith three times and cruised the whole way. The Titans could be a surprisingly dangerous team this season.

ESPN:

19. The Titans handed Chiefs QB Alex Smith his second three-interception game in the past five years. All three of Smith's interceptions came against Tennessee's four-man pass rush.

NFL.com:

20. Called this victory in last week's Game Picks, but I don't want to give myself too much credit. Also called effective play from Jake Locker, but what's the point of a man relentlessly patting himself on the back? Oh, and did I mention that I picked Tennessee to sneak into the playoffs? OK, if I get that one right, you must refer to me as NostraTitanus. What do Titans faithful think? Was this impressive road win a sign of a playoff run to come?

PFT:

21. The no-name offense and the no-name defense notch a big-time win.
