NFL power rankings, Week 2: Who’s on top, who’s rising fast after the primary week of the season


The NFL has wrapped up Week 2 and it was some wild football. We opened with a fun Chiefs rally over the Chargers on Thursday Night Football, which has KC in first place within the AFC West, however the Chargers clearly a contender. The week wrapped with a pair of statement games on Monday Night Football because the Bills crushed the Titans and the Eagles rolled over the Vikings.

We’re back with our latest NFL power rankings. Last week, the Bills were No. 1 in five of our six rankings. This week, it’s a clean sweep. The Chiefs follow in five of six, with the Bucs behind them. Probably the most interesting team though could be the Eagles. They got here into the season as co-favorites within the NFC East and they’re now looking just like the favorites. Jalen Hurts is for real they usually put together a formidable performance in beating the Vikings.

We had a giant injury within the NFL this weekend with 49ers QB Trey Lance fracturing his ankle. He had surgery on Monday and is out for the remainder of the season. Jimmy Garoppolo is back within the saddle for the 49ers and helped get them their first W of the season. They’re the one consistent team in our Week 3 rankings, with all five humans rating them No. 11.

On the opposite end of things, the Falcons and Texans are bringing up the rear across the board. Each have given teams a tricky time the primary two weeks, but they keep coming up short. It’s hard to see either winning many games, and one has to wonder with Atlanta specifically whether we see Desmond Ridder soon.

Here’s a have a look at our complete power rankings. Five of the rankings come from our staff and the sixth are the most recent Super Bowl 57 odds from DraftKings Sportsbook.
