PFT’s Week Two 2022 NFL power rankings

All eyes were on Seattle Monday night, where Russell Wilson and the Broncos fell to the star QB's former team in an intense and emotional Week 1 showdown.

1. Bills (1-0; No. 3): They’ll go as far as Josh Allen can take them. And he can take them all the way.

2. Chiefs (1-0; No. 4): Anyone who was sleeping on the Chiefs is now wide-ass awake.

3. Buccaneers (1-0; No. 2): They beat an overmatched Dallas team, but something’s missing.

4. Rams (0-1; No. 1): They may not see another team this year as good as the one that dismantled them in Week One.

5. Eagles (1-0; No. 9): The three-point margin obscures how solid they were.

6. Ravens (1-0; No. 12): Yes, it was the Jets. But they look like they’re ready to contend.

7. Bengals (0-1; No. 6): They stepped on a rake to start the season, and still almost won.

8. Packers (0-1; No. 5): At least it wasn’t 38-3.

9. 49ers (0-1; No. 7): It’s hard to tell how good (or not) they are based on a game played in a swamp.

10. Titans (0-1; No. 8): Last year, they were blown out at home in Week One and recovered to win the No. 1 seed.

11. Chargers (1-0; No. 15): Great start. Consistency, and health, will be the key.

12. Dolphins (1-0; No. 18): The Bills need to be far more concerned about the Dolphins than the Patriots.

13. Steelers (1-0; No. 16): They’ve got a chance to take a 4-0 record to Buffalo in Week Five.

14. Colts (0-0-1; No. 11): They ended an eight-game Week One losing streak. They probably aren’t celebrating.

15. Raiders (0-1; No. 14): They’ve got to regroup quickly, because things don’t get much easier until their Week Six bye.

16. Browns (1-0; No. 21): The Browns of past regimes wouldn’t have recovered from that blown lead.

17. Cowboys (0-1; No. 10): When you have two quarterbacks, you have none. When you have one quarterback who gets injured, you also have none.

18. Vikings (1-0; No. 22): Things could get very interesting in the NFC North this year.

19. Saints (1-0; No. 20): Against better teams, they’ll need to play more than one quarter per game.

20. Patriots (0-1; No. 17): The “yeah, but Bill Belichick is the coach” routine may not work for very long.

21. Cardinals (0-1; No. 13): When the coach is complaining about performance at practice after the first game that counts, that’s a very bad sign.

22. Seahawks (1-0; No. 25): Pete Carroll got an early birthday present in the form of big slice of vindication.

23. Washington (1-0; No. 24): Carson Wentz looked like the 2017 version and then the 2021 version and then the 2017 version again.

24. Broncos (0-1; No. 19): When it mattered most, Let Russ Cook became Let Russ Watch.

25. Giants (1-0; No. 27): A healthy and motivated Saquon Barkley makes up for a lot of deficiencies on the roster.

26. Panthers (0-1; No. 23): David Tepper won’t put up with too many more of those.

27. Bears (1-0; No. 30): Win at Lambeau, and the Bears will get a big bump.

28. Falcons (0-1; No. 26): The more things change, the more the Falcons blow a big lead in the fourth quarter.

29. Texans (0-0-1; No. 32): They haven’t had to finish out many games in recent years, and it showed.

30. Lions (0-1; No. 28): Nobody back-door covers in Week One like the Dan Campbell Lions.

31. Jaguars (0-1; No. 29): The good news is that Doug Pederson was on the plane back to Jacksonville.

32. Jets (0-1; No. 31): Robert Saleh is keeping receipts. His wallet will soon be fatter than George Costanza’s.
