With Week 2 in the books, we’re starting to figure out where NFL teams really stand this season, though it’s still a bit early to be making grand, sweeping judgments. That said, the Chiefs have certainly staked their claim as one of the best teams in football, landing in at No. 1 after a solid win over the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Patriots had no problem rebounding from that Week 1 loss, dismantling the Saints to avoid slipping out of the top 10. The Denver Broncos catapulted to the top 10 after defeating the Dallas Cowboys, 42-17.
Speaking of the Cowboys, Yahoo Sports’ power rankings listed the Cowboys at No. 8, and the Broncos were at No. 7. Also, the Carolina Panthers jump up to No. 10 after knocking off the Buffalo Bills, 9-3.
CBS Sports’ power rankings has the Atlanta Falcons as the top team, and Kansas City is at No. 3. However, Washington moved up six spots after beating the Rams, 27-20. Washington currently sits at 19. Dallas, on the other hand, slipped six spots and is listed at No. 12.
And finally, the race for the No. 1-overall draft pick is wide open, with the Jets, Colts, 49ers, and Browns bringing up the rear in multiple rankings.
SB Nation also released a Hope Rankings for Week 3, and the Kansas City Chiefs are at the top, and the Broncos are listed at No. 2.
