NFL Power Rankings: Where all 32 teams stand

Not that the Jets could really count on Le'Veon Bell, but he left Sunday's game against the Bills with a hamstring injury. Adam Gase's seat is red hot.


Imagine not giving the ball to Christian McCaffrey on 4th-and-inches with the game on the line. The Panthers won't win many games in 2020, but they had a real shot to beat the Raiders Sunday.


Joe Burrow had one big mistake in his debut, but otherwise looked like he belongs. If not for a late offensive interference call and missed field goal, the Bengals could be 1-0.


Gardner Minshew delivered a shocking victory over the Colts in Week 1, but the Jaguars are not a good football team. I'll still be surprised if they win more than four games.


The Giants aren't pushovers, but they also aren't good. Saquon Barkley had just six rushing yards on 15 carries, which is hard to explain, even against the Steelers.


The Dolphins were feisty in New England, but went without a touchdown until the fourth quarter. This young team should grow as the season goes along.


The Ravens are very good, but Baker Mayfield managed just 189 passing yards on 39 attempts. Yikes. Kevin Stefanski has his hands full in Cleveland.


When asked if his coaching has anything to do with the Lions' 11 blown fourth quarter leads under his watch, Matt Patricia cited Malcolm Butler's interception of Russell Wilson in Super Bowl XLIV as evidence that he knows what he's doing. I'm sure that makes the city of Detroit feel a lot better.


Ron Rivera is an outstanding coach, but even he couldn't have predicted his team would score 27 unanswered points after falling behind 17-0 to the Eagles.


The Chargers are severely limited with Tyrod Taylor at quarterback and they were fortunate to leave Cincinnati with a win.


Deshaun Watson can't do it all in Houston. The Texans are slowly creeping backwards in the AFC. Do you think Bill O'Brien watched DeAndre Hopkins' debut for the Cardinals?


Derek Carr was efficient and Josh Jacobs scored three touchdowns, but the Raiders still have a lot to prove.


The new/old uniforms were awesome, but the defense was not. Matt Ryan threw for 450 yards and two touchdowns in the loss to Seattle.


Vic Fangio's clock management at the end of the Broncos' loss to the Titans was not good. There wasn't enough offense for a team that added a lot of playmakers in the offseason. And they lost Von Miller for the season.


With a youth movement, I expected the Vikings' defense to go through some growing pains, but allowing 43 points and 522 yards to the Packers was a bit much.


The Eagles blew a 17-0 lead to a team that doesn't have a name. It doesn't get much worse than that. Carson Wentz was not good, but his offense line was horrendous.


Was Jason Garrett hiding behind Mike McCarthy's mask? It was much of the same offensively for the Cowboys in Los Angeles.


The Bears' offense showed some encouraging signs, but still looked disjointed until Mitch Trubisky got hot in the fourth quarter. With the Giants coming to Soldier Field on Sunday, the Bears should be 2-0.


Former Bears defensive assistant Brandon Staley had a great debut as the Rams' defensive coordinator, but I still have questions about that offense. Jared Goff was not great.


The dud of the week goes to the Indianapolis Colts. They're a good team and way better than the Jaguars. There's one of these in Week 1 every year, but Philip Rivers' arm strength looks limited.


Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins are going to be fun to watch this season. Murray might even be a darkhorse MVP candidate.


Cam Newton ran for 75 yards and two touchdowns, which was encouraging from a health standpoint, but the Patriots' offense will have to be better against tougher opponents.


Stephen Gostkowski missed three field goals and an extra point in his Titans debut, but still nailed the game-winner. The Titans are limited, but always seem to find a way to win under Mike Vrabel.


Uh oh. Aaron Rodgers looked 10 years younger while putting up 43 points on the Vikings. Davante Adams (14 catches, 156 yards, two touchdowns) better stay healthy for Green Bay.


The loss in New Orleans would have been even worse had Alvin Kamara not stepped out of bounds an inch short of a touchdown at the end of the game. Tom Brady's Bucs debut was not pretty.


The Super Bowl hangover is real. The 49ers arrived fast and now Kyle Shanahan has to hope the rest of the NFC West didn't catch up to schemes.


I'm not sure the Bills want Josh Allen throwing the ball 46 times a game, but he got the job done against an awful Jets team.


Great sign for the Steelers as Ben Roethlisberger looked good healthy as the Steelers cruised to a Monday Night win over the Giants.


Jamal Adams looked great in his Seahawks debut, but not as good as Russell Wilson, who was 31-of-35 for 322 yards and four touchdowns. The MVP campaign is on.


Lamar Jackson picked up right where he left off in 2019 with three touchdowns and a passer rating of 152.1. Watch out, because Mark Andrews is quickly becoming one of the best tight ends in football.


Tom Brady in the division? No problem. The Saints are loaded and showed they're still the clear favorites by beating the Buccaneers comfortably.


Already loaded, the Chiefs had two rookies (running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire and cornerback L'Jarius Sneed step up in Week 1. Yeah, that's not scary at all.
