Danny O'Neil's NFL power rankings
Last week's rankings in parentheses
Team Comment
1. San Francisco (1) Dear Jim Harbaugh: Nick Holt called. He wants his reading glasses back.
2. Houston (2) Not half bad: Texans have outscored first two opponents 41-3 in 1st half.
3. Atlanta (5) Michael Turner has as many TDs as DUI arrests this season. One apiece.
4. San Diego (15) Norv Turner 2-0 for the first time in 15 seasons as a head coach. That's not a compliment.
5. Philadelphia (9) There's one person in this league who can stop RB LeSean McCoy: Andy Reid.
6. Baltimore (4) For once, Ravens won't be Baltimore's only pro team still hitting in November.
7. N.Y. Giants (8) Grumpy Old Man: Please tell me Tom Coughlin called Greg Schiano a whippersnapper.
8. New England (3) "Gronk Flakes" may sound like dandruff, but it's actually a cereal.
9. Green Bay (10) Packers' slow start more than a metaphor: They have yet to score in 1st or 3rd quarter.
10. Pittsburgh (11) There is no truth to the rumor that aging Steelers are starring in "Expendables III."
11. Arizona (13) Cards 2-0 for 2nd time in 20 years. More like a broken clock or a blind squirrel? Discuss.
12. Dallas (6) An injury ex-spleens TE Jason Witten's drops. WR Dez Bryant has no excuse.
13. Denver (7) Brian Griese called: He's availabale and able to throw 3 INTs in the 1st half, too.
14. N.Y. Jets (12) Mark Sanchez dating Eva Longoria is proof even NFL players can Coug it.
15. Seattle (19) Seahawks' seat-of-the-pants approach embodied by Russell Wilson's Levi's endorsement.
16. Washington (18) Pointed comparison: Washington scoring 34 points per game this year, up from 18 a year ago.
17. Detroit (14) Lions have held only one of last 10 regular-season opponents to fewer than 20 points.
18. Cincinnati (16) The Bengals outscored 71-47, worst point differential of the 18 teams that are 1-1.
19. Chicago (17) QB Jay Cutler = obnoxious yeller; LB Brian Urlacher = Ol' Yeller.
20. Tampa Bay (20) Bucs unveil new play: "Hut, hut, play like a jackass because your coach told you to."
21. St. Louis (26) Rams a victory away from matching last season's win total.
22. Miami (27) What were the odds that Reggie Bush would rank No. 2 in rushing yards after two games?
23. Buffalo (28) Better than the odds that C.J. Spiller would be No. 1 in rushing at this point.
24. Minnesota (23) OMG, Vikes totally have a coach named Leslie, a QB named Christian and an Erin at LB.
25. Indianapolis (30) When do the Colts sign out like Ryan Seacrest? When they Luck out.
26. New Orleans (21) Maybe SMU is the one that got off easy?
27. Carolina (31) First thing's worst: Panthers outscored 30-7 in the first quarter in first three games.
28. Tennessee (22) Bilal Powell and Brandon Weeden have more rushing yards than Chris Johnson. Just saying.
29. Cleveland (29) Browns one loss away from being 0-3 for the fifth time in seven seasons.
30. Kansas City (24) Wherefore art thou defense, Romeo? Chiefs giving up 37.5 points, most in AFC.
31. Oakland (25) Raiders not nearly so offensive anymore, but that's a bad thing. They're No. 31 in scoring.
32. Jacksonville (32) Jags wanted a quarterback. Now, they'd be lucky to get a quarter back for Blaine Gabbert.
