NFL Power Poll

As we gear up for Week 2 action, take a look at where the teams are currently sitting in's NFL Power Poll. It's a new feature that we'll be presenting on Wednesday through the rest of the season.

2007 Power Rankings: Week 2
  Rk Team Comments
1. Chargers
A win against the Super Bowl runner-up with LaDainian Tomlinson gaining only 25 yards is scary! Defense totally shut down the Bears.
2. Patriots
Looked like they were in midseason form and they made it look easy. The class of the AFC East will run away with the division.
3. Colts
Peyton's performance was expected, but shutting down the Saints vaunted offense bodes well for the defending Super Bowl champions
4. Cowboys
Defense disappointed, but QB Tony Romo and the rest of the offense impressed in a division victory over the Giants.
5. Bears
League's top defense can't do it alone. RB Cedric Benson struggled as team's primary ball carrier -- and Rex was Rex
6. Saints
Secondary was exposed versus Colts. Brees struggled along with the rest of the offensive personnel.
7. Bengals
Talented unit on both sides of the football. Hey, Chad Johnson ... just keep your mouth shut and play the game!
8. Broncos
Many people felt the Broncos were lucky to pull this one out, but that's what good teams do with the game on the line.
9. Seahawks
Put a lot of pressure on Bucs QB Jeff Garcia and showed well on both sides of the ball. Impressive outing for comeback RB Shaun Alexander.
10. Panthers
Winning on the road is never easy, but shutting down the high-powered Rams offense is downright impressive.
11. Ravens
Ravens hung in there versus the Bengals, but couldn't get it done at nut-cutting time. Early rash of injuries could be a factor
12. Steelers
Pittsburgh totally dominated a very poor, uninspired Browns squad -- but a win is a win.
13. Rams
Offense just couldn't get untracked and defense still can't stop the inside run (too many missed tackles).  Injury to Orlando Pace could be devastating.
14. Eagles
Two-time Eagle returner J.R. Reed sent packing after critical late-game muff. McNabb looked out of sync and will need to pick it up
15. Jaguars
The Jaguars did little on the offensive side of the football. WR and QB positions could pose a season-long problem
16. Lions
One down and nine to go, Jon Kitna. Liked what I saw on both sides of the ball. Old Lions would have folded their tent trailing late in the game.
17. Titans
RB Chris Brown didn't get a sniff in free agency, but ran around and through the usual stout Jaguars defense front.
18. Packers
Packers will be hard-pressed to win many more if they don't uncover some weapons on the offensive side of the football.
19. Vikings
Young Vikings offense hopes to build on win over the hapless Falcons. Impressive debut for rookie sensation RB Adrian Peterson.
20. Texans
Solid debut for QB Matt Schaub, but real test should come this week versus the Panthers. Questionable RB depth might lead to problems.
21. 49ers
Winner in possibly the worst Monday night football game of all time. Nice finish, but QB Alex Smith still has a great deal to prove.
22. Giants
Defense looked lethargic & played uninspiring football. Injuries to Eli Manning and Brandon Jacobs spells big trouble for Big Blue.
23. Bills
Push the ball down the field J.P. Losman!  Rookie RB Marshawn Lynch was impressive in pro debut. Best wishes go out to Kevin Everett.
24. Jets
The CIA could have been signaling the defenses and it wouldn't have made a difference.
25. Redskins
Running game carried them to an uninspiring win over Miami. If this is the new, improved Jason Campbell, it's going to be a long season.
26. Dolphins
One has to be able to run the ball and stop the run in order to win consistently ... and the Dolphins could do neither.
27. Buccaneers
Offensive front was manhandled by an aggressive Seahawk front. Could be a very long year in the other city by the bay.
28. Cardinals
See the new boss? Same as the old boss. The opening series of the second half set football back 20 years. QB lacks mobility, quickness.
29. Falcons
Vikings dominated a bad Falcons football team in the trenches. Running the football could be a challenge for the 2007 season.
30. Chiefs
This is not a good football team. QBs are incapable of getting the ball down the field. Hey, is Lennie Dawson still living in the area?
31. Raiders
Close only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes. QB play was bright spot, but wins will be hard to come by for this once-proud franchise
32. Browns
Browns employ 3 outstanding WRs -- Paul Warfield, Jerry Butler, and Wes Chandler. Unfortunately, they no longer make their living on the field. Recommended Stories
