Every tuesday, I rank the 32 teams in the NFL with a short description of why they've received that ranking.
1. San Francisco 49ers
Went to Green Bay and beat the Packers; you can't get better than that.
2. Baltimore Ravens
Completely demolished the Bengals; looked great on both sides of the ball
3. New England Patriots
Brady is the same, but Stevan Ridley is making a name for himself; defense looked really solid too
4. Houston Texans
Matt Schaub looked good and so did Johnson; defense held Miami's offense to 3 points.
5. Green Bay Packers
They made the game very close, but the fact of the matter is they lost at home.
6. Chicago Bears
Very easily beat the Colts, as their receiving core shined and Cutler looked better as the game went on.
7. Denver Broncos
Peyton Manning is back and looks the same; the defense came clutch late
8. Atlanta Falcons
Matt Ryan and Julio Jones is becoming a great duo; watch out for the Falcons.
9. Dallas Cowboys
Tony Romo had one of the best games of his careers and Rob Ryan's D looked awesome!
10. Pittsburgh Steelers
They lost, but if it weren't for one mistake, the Steelers could have won.
11. New York Giants
They had a bad loss against the Cowboys, but it seemed like an off night for many stars.
12. Detroit Lions
They beat the Rams, but it wasn't pretty; Stafford threw 3 picks and the defense wasn't great.
13. New York Jets
48 points! Against a D that many thought would be great this year! Shocked the hell out of me!
14. Washington Redskins
RG3 has a great game and the offense looks great, but the D wasn't stellar.
15. New Orleans Saints
They lost to the Skins in New Orleans, and if Drw Brees had a bad game, they wouldn't have made it to 10 points.
16. Philadelphia Eagles
Michael Vick had 4 picks, and nobody really impressed. Barely beat the Browns who's QB had 4 picks.
17. San Diego Chargers
Rivers looked great and seems to be turning it around this year.
18. Cincinatti Bengals
They're a much better team than the team that showed up Monday night. They'll be back in the win column soon.
19. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Shocked the Panthers and Cam Newton. Schiano's D looked amazing!
20. Kansas City Chiefs
They put up a good amount of points against a good D, but their D just let them down in KC.
21. Arizona Cardinals
Surprising win against the WIlson-led Seahawks. The injury to Skelton could be the break Kolb needed.
22. Minnesota Vikings
Great comeback thrilling victory!...but it wasn't against the Jags at home. Let's see how they do against the Colts.
23. Carolina Panthers
They were suppose to kill the Bucs. Nobody played well and they paid the price.
24. Seattle Seahawks
Wilson looked shaky and the offense didn't show up. D played well enough to win; offense needs to put up points!
25. St Louis Rams
Rams put up a good fight against the Lions and their D looked great, but they came just a bit short.
26. Tennessee Titans
Everybody looked bad against the Pats. 4 rushing yards from Johnson? Give me a break.
27. Oakland Raiders
Raiders came back late, but it wasn't enough. They just made too many mistakes.
28. Buffalo Bills
Doesn't help to have injuries to Jackson and Nelson, but they still got killed by the Jets.
29. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jaguars had a great game against the Viks, and Gabbert looked awesome. MJD is healthy and expect the Jags to rise.
30. Indianapolis Colts
The offensive line let the Colts down and Andrew Luck has a sub-par performance. Add to the fact that their D was crap and you have a bad ranking.
31. Cleveland Browns
The offense was horrible, and the D got a lucky pick 6. Expect the Browns to stay down here.
32. Miami Dolphins
3 points from the offense and a TD from a punt return. The defense then allows 30 points to the Texans. Help is needed in Miami.
