Here’s a look at my NFL power rankings for Week 3 of the 2013 season.


  1. Denver Broncos (1)(2-0) — Stay unbeaten with a sound thumping of the Giants on the road.
  2. Seattle Seahawks (3)(2-0) — Dominated division rival San Fran on Sunday night.
  3. Houston Texans (4)(2-0) — They stay perfect on the season but their performance has been anything but.
  4. San Francisco 49ers (2)(1-1) — Didn’t look good in road loss to Seahawks.
  5. New England Patriots (5)(2-0) — May be division champs by default this year. Lack offensive firepower.
  6. New Orleans Saints (6)(2-0) — Will probably fly under the radar for most of the year.
  7. Atlanta Falcons (7)(1-1) — Steven Jackson suffered an injury, but they pick up divisional win vs. Rams.
  8. Chicago Bears (8)(2-0) — Finding ways to pull off fourth-quarter victories.
  9. Green Bay Packers (9)(1-1) — Thoroughly thrashed the Redskins at home.
  10. Baltimore Ravens (10)(1-1) — Their wins won’t look pretty this year. Barely edged the Browns.
  11. Cincinnati Bengals (12)(1-1) — Took out their aggression on division rival Pittsburgh.
  12. Miami Dolphins (19)(2-0) — Edged out the Colts and remain unbeaten.
  13. Indianapolis Colts (11)(1-1) — Haven’t looked like the team many thought they’d be this year.
  14. Dallas Cowboys (13)(1-1) — Lost a tough road game to a surging Chiefs team.
  15. Philadelphia Eagles (14)(1-1) — Explosive offense edged out by the Chargers.
  16. Washington Redskins (15)(0-2) — Started the season with two tough games. Can they rebound?
  17. Detroit Lions (16)(1-1) — Will remain a middle-of-the-pack team all season.
  18. Kansas City Chiefs (24)(2-0) — Looking good so far with two straight wins. Are they for real?
  19. San Diego Chargers (21)(1-1) — Won the battle of offenses against the Eagles.
  20. New York Giants (18)(0-2) — Eli lost to older brother Peyton and the Giants are now in a hole.
  21. Minnesota Vikings (17)(0-2) — Ponder improved from Week 1 but he’s still the biggest problem on a team full of problems.
  22. St. Louis Rams (20)(1-1) — They’ll be competitive in most games but they still lack playoff talent.
  23. Buffalo Bills (25)(1-1) — Big victory by the rookie Manuel against a struggling Panthers team.
  24. Carolina Panthers (22)(0-2) — Ron Rivera’s days as Panthers coach are numbered after collapse against Bills.
  25. Pittsburgh Steelers (23)(0-2) — Completely in rebuilding mode; this team lacks a lot of talent.
  26. Arizona Cardinals (29)(1-1) — Squeaked by with a victory over the Lions.
  27. Tennessee Titans (26)(1-1) — Played well, but lost to a better Texans team. Could be on the rise.
  28. New York Jets (27)(1-1) — An awful team that lost just barely to a sluggish Patriots team.
  29. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (28)(0-2) — Bucs have turmoil at quarterback and that usually means bad season.
  30. Cleveland Browns (30)(0-2) — Bad News Browns. Can’t win without talent to surround Richardson.
  31. Oakland Raiders (31)(1-1) — Perhaps their only victory of the season against a worse Jaguars squad.
  32. Jacksonville Jaguars (32)(0-2) — Will they win a game all season? Fans are pining for Tim Tebow.
