Here’s a look at my NFL power rankings for Week 2 of the 2013 season.

RANK. TEAM NAME (PREVIOUS RANK)(RECORD)

  1. Denver Broncos (2)(1-0) β€” Crushed Ravens behind 7 TDs from Manning. Look like best team right now.
  2. San Francisco 49ers (1)(1-0) β€” Had a little trouble with a good Packers team. Holding steady in Top 3.
  3. Seattle Seahawks (3)(1-0) β€” Nearly lost on the road to the Panthers but pulled it out.
  4. Houston Texans (6)(1-0) β€” Got off to a rough start against the Chargers but made a nice comeback.
  5. New England Patriots (8)(1-0) β€” Nearly had a scare against the Bills but Brady leads them on game-winning drive.
  6. New Orleans Saints (16)(1-0) β€” Still have some holes, but beat a good Falcons team.
  7. Atlanta Falcons (4)(0-1) β€” Still could be better than the Saints, but lost a tough road game.
  8. Chicago Bears (12)(1-0) β€” Had some defensive struggles, but veteran team showed resiliency.
  9. Green Bay Packers (9)(0-1) β€” No shame in losing to a better 49ers team on the road.

  11. Indianapolis Colts (10)(1-0) β€” Nearly gave a terrible Raiders team a gift in their own house.
  12. Cincinnati Bengals (7)(0-1) β€” Looked good offensively, but struggled with discipline and closing out the game.
  13. Dallas Cowboys (14)(1-0) β€” New defense looked very good with six takeaways against the Giants.
  14. Philadelphia Eagles (25)(1-0) β€” Chip Kelly’s new offense had a great debut, looking like a video game.
  15. Washington Redskins (11)(0-1) β€” Couldn’t handle the high-powered offense of the Eagles.
  16. Detroit Lions (21)(1-0) β€” A better all-around team than the Vikings at this point and held on for a Week 1 win.
  17. Minnesota Vikings (13)(0-1) β€” AP isn’t getting much help from his quarterback, offensive line, or defense.
  18. New York Giants (15)(0-1) β€” Turned the ball over too many times against the Cowboys but still lost by just 5.
  19. Miami Dolphins (17)(1-0) β€” Beat up on a bad Browns team. Nothing impressive.
