Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

After 3 weeks of action, let's look at how teams are stacked up in the NFL:

  1. Indianapolis Colts (3-0): Another tough division win, they stay #1 until they get beat.
  2. New England Patriots (3-0): Another week, another 38 point performance.
  3. Dallas Cowboys (3-0): After only 3 weeks, Cowboys rise to the top of a mediocre NFC.
  4. Pittsburgh Steelers (3-0): Still not really tested, Steelers hold off young 49ers.
  5. Green Bay Packers (3-0): The story of the NFL season thus far, the Packers are playing like it's 1995.
  6. Seattle Seahawks (2-1): Back in their familiar spot atop the NFC West.
  7. Tennessee Titans (2-1): Vince Young outplayed Reggie Bush and led the Titans to a win on MNF.
  8. Baltimore Ravens (2-1): Didn't do a good job of putting away the Cardinals in the 4th quarter.
  9. San Diego Chargers (1-2): L.T. is finding little running room, what's going on there?
  10. Chicago Bears (1-2): Grossman is out, Griese is in...will it make much difference?
  11. Jacksonville Jaguars (2-1): Returned to the running game and got a big win.
  12. Denver Broncos (2-1): Risky 4th down call backfired.
  13. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2-1): The Bucs are quietly making noise in the poor NFC.
  14. Carolina Panthers (2-1): Jake Delhomme should be able to start this week, but do fans want to see David Carr anyway?
  15. Washington Redskins (2-1): Follow up big division win with a loss to struggling Giants.
  16. Philadelphia Eagles (1-2): Someone woke up the Eagles, will this turn their season around?
  17. Houston Texans (2-1): Injuries are making things tough, but they hung with the Champs for a bit.
  18. San Francisco 49ers (2-1): Steelers handed them their first loss and showed them that they still have work to do.
  19. Detroit Lions (2-1): That game sure put a damper on their 2-0 start. How will they react this week?
  20. Cincinnati Bengals (1-2): The defense held someone under 50 points, but the offense didn't score enough this week.
  21. New York Jets (1-2): Chad Pennington quieted the critics for at least another week.
  22. New York Giants (1-2): Eli's showing his toughness, playing through his injury. Defense actually showed up too.
  23. Arizona Cardinals (1-2): Kurt Warner will see more action after his return performance against the Ravens.
  24. Oakland Raiders (1-2): Used time-out trick in their favor this week, and should be 2-1 instead of 1-2.
  25. Kansas City Chiefs (1-2): Chiefs won the ugliest game of the week.
  26. Minnesota Vikings (1-2): Vikings lost the ugliest game of the week.
  27. Cleveland Browns (1-2): The team is making strides, but they were bit by the time-out trick this week.
  28. New Orleans Saints (0-3): Everything's going wrong and it's getting worse. Jason David is out for at least a month and Deuce is gone for the season...or longer.
  29. St. Louis Rams (0-3): Marc Bulger has injured ribs and Steven Jackson is out this week, like with the Saints, when it rains, it pours. (could there be more commas in that statement?)
  30. Buffalo Bills (0-3): Passing game is non-existent and J.P. Losman's injury give rookie QB Trent Edwards the start. Ouch.
  31. Miami Dolphins (0-3): Bright spot: Ronnie Brown came through with a great game.
  32. Atlanta Falcons (0-3): Falcons look to be playing for the draft's top pick next year.
