Power Rankings (week 2)

September 16, 2009 by Steel Haven

1.1.Pittsburgh Steelers1-0Roethlisberger engineered a game winning drive in the 4th quarter or overtime for the 18th time in his career. Most by any QB since he has been in the league.
2.2.New England Patriots1-0Out of synch Brady came alive when needed in the final 2 minutes.
3.3.New York Giants1-0Manning showed he could spread the ball around to overcome the loss of Burress.
4.4.San Diego Chargers1-0Perennial slow starters escaped from Oakland.
5.5.Indianapolis Colts1-0Loss of Gonzalez to injury hurts the passing game. Polian has publicly stated that he is not interested in bring back Harrison so the burden falls on Garcon and Collie.
6.6.Minnesota Vikings1-0In the upper echalon as long as Favre sublimates his game and follows Purple Jesus to the promised land.
7.8.Baltimore Ravens1-0Are they transitioning from defensively dominant to offensively dominant?
8.9.New Orleans Saints1-0Brees seems poised to make another run at Marino's single season touchdown passing record.
9.10.Philadelphia Eagles1-0Signed Garcia as a short term stopgap while they wait for McNabb to recover from a broken rib and Vick to get himself back into playing shape when he returns from suspension in week 3.
10.12.Atlanta Falcons1-0Started strong in their attempt to post back-to-back winning seasons for the first time in franchise history.
11.13.Dallas Cowboys1-0Romo did not miss TO at least for one week.
12.11.Tennessee Titans0-1Lack of big plays in the passing game make it tough when Johnson and White get bottled up.
13.17.Green Bay Packers1-0Primed for a big rebound from last year's 10 loss season if the defense can keep playing as well as it did on Sunday night.
14.22.New York Jets1-0Ryan and Sanchez started strong as they try to follow in the footsteps of rookie head coaches and quarterbacks in Baltimore and Atlanta last season.
15.7.Chicago Bears0-1Shouldn't be ashamed of losing a road game to a divisional rival in prime time. Of course they didn't plan on Cutler throwing 4 interceptions and Urlacher going down for the season with a dislocated wrist.
16.23.Seattle Seahawks1-0Return of Hasselbeck was a success.
17.24.San Fransisco 49ers1-0The force of Singletary's will (plus the lack of top competition) makes them a legitimate contender in the NFC West.
18.14.Arizona Cardinals0-1Curse of the Super Bowl loser strikes early.
19.15.Carolina Panthers0-1Delhomme picked up where he left off in the playoffs by turning the ball over 5 times and getting pulled in the 3rd quarter.
20.16.Houston Texans0-1Dominated at home by the upstart Jets. Things don't get easier with a trip to Tennessee for a divisional battle between winless teams.
21.18.Miami Dolphins0-1Has the league caught up to the wildcat?
22.20.Washington Redskins0-1Lack of productivity among the wideouts outside of Randle El makes Campbell's job difficult.
23.21.Jacksonville Jaguars0-1Early offensive struggles should have been expected for the first team starting a pair of rookie tackles since 1982.
24.31.Denver Broncos1-0Fluke, 87 yard touchdown off a deflected pass allows McDaniels to start his career as a head coach on the right foot after a disasterous off season.
25.19.Cincinnati Bengals0-1Same old Bungles.
26.25.Oakland Raiders0-1Addition of Seymour and ability to run the ball actually give them some hope. Can Cable and Russell do the job?
27.26.Buffalo Bills0-1Snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Any talk of a moral victory by keeping the game close is overshadowed by how they blew the lead.
28.27.Tampa Bay Buccaneers0-1Successful return of Cadillac was not enough.
29.28.Cleveland Browns0-1Defense hung tough for a half before succumbing to Purple Jesus. Lack of offensive playmakers severely limits their margin for error.
30.29.Kansas City Chiefs0-1Croyle was surprisingly effective in relief of Cassel, alas the defense could not contain Flacco.
31.30.St. Louis Rams0-1Spagnola has a lot of work to do.
32.32.Detriot Lions0-1New coach. New QB. Old result.
