2011 NFL Power Rankings: Week Two

Rank (LW) Team Comment 2011 Record
1 (1) Packers It took the Packers a while to wake up against the Panthers, but not even Cam Newton’s 432 yards could bring them down.  2-0
2 (2)  Patriots Tom Brady is your early front-runner for MVP.  2-0
3 (5)  Jets The Jets took care of business against the Jaguars, getting back on track after their gift-wrapped win against the Cowboys.  2-0
4 (7)  Falcons The Falcons made a big statement in what was likely a must-win game, even if Michael Vick was out for parts of it with a concussion.  1-1
5 (3)  Eagles Everyone was wondering when Michael Vick would get hurt. The Eagles were just hoping it wouldn’t be in Week Two.  1-1
6 (6)  Steelers Putting the hurt on the Seahawks means the Steelers are back on track.  1-1
7 (4)  Ravens The Ravens suffered an embarrassing loss in Tennessee just one week after demolishing the Steelers. If they want to be a true Super Bowl contender, the Ravens can’t lose games like that.  1-1
8 (8)  Saints A convincing win over the Bears allowed the Saints to keep pace in the tight NFC South.  1-1
9 (10)  Texans With the Colts struggling, the Texans seemed destined for their first trip to the playoffs.  2-0
10 (11)  Lions With Matthew Stafford healthy, this team is proving itself to be an offensive juggernaut.  2-0
11 (9)  Chargers The Chargers were once again tabbed Super Bowl contenders, but, once again, it doesn’t feel like it early in the season.  1-1
12 (12)  Bears Which Bears team shows up against Green Bay on Sunday?  1-1
13 (14)  Cardinals Despite the disappointing loss to the Redskins, the Cardinals appear to be the team to beat in the NFC West.  1-1
14 (13)  Buccaneers The Buccaneers needed a big fourth quarter to beat the vulnerable Minnesota Vikings.  1-1
15 (22) Redskins The younger, retooled Redskins are finally beginning a new chapter of football in Washington.  2-0
16 (19)  Raiders The Raiders lost due to a furious rally by the Bills, and need to rebound quickly against the Jets.  1-1
17 (15)  Cowboys The Cowboys are facing injuries to many of their playmakers, which could quickly make this another long, disappointing season in Dallas.  1-1
18 (17)  Giants The Giants were able to win on Monday night, but didn’t look particularly well in doing so.  1-1
19 (24)  Titans Matt Hasselbeck is showing that he still has plenty left in the tank, and this is while the team waits for Chris Johnson to prove he was worthy of a new contract.  1-1
20 (21)  49ers Like every NFC West team, the 49ers won’t be out of the division race throughout the entire season.  1-1
21 (20)  Jaguars Without David Garrard, we can expect more games like their 32-3 loss to the Jets on Sunday.  1-1
22 (19)  Rams A disappointing performance on Monday Night Football has people wondering if the Rams are still a year or so away from contention.  0-2
23 (27)  Bills The high-scoring Bills take on New England at home to try and prove that they’re for real.  2-0
24 (29)  Broncos The Broncos were able to weather the storm of injuries and still play well enough to win last Sunday.  1-1
25 (23)  Dolphins Tony Sparano is on the hot seat as the Dolphins dropped their first two games of the season at home.  0-2
26 (32)  Bengals The Bengals were competitive on Sunday, but couldn’t pull out the road win against the Broncos. One thing’s for sure: the Bengals won’t be pushovers.  1-1
27 (18)  Colts The Colts are now fully invested in the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.  0-2
28 (31)  Panthers Cam Newton is the talk of the league two games into the season, but how long will that last?  0-2
29 (31)  Browns The first two games of the season showcased two very different Browns teams. Who will show up against the Dolphins?  1-1
30 (23)  Vikings The Vikings are staring 0-3 right in the face as they take on the roaring Lions in Week Three.  0-2
31 (32)  Seahawks The Seahawks are 0-2, the offense is stagnant, and they’ve got holes defensively. Yet, they’re not out of the NFC West race.  0-2
32 (25) Chiefs Things are about to get really ugly in Kansas City.  0-2
