What an opening weekend in the NFL. Holy cow.
Think You Can Do Better?
Detroit looked great. Buffalo won by 34 points against a 2010 playoff team, on the road no less. Pittsburgh looked old and slow on defense, but at least made up for it by turning the ball over.
Seven days ago, I whined that the Week 1 Power Rankings were the most difficult. May I change my tune, and say this second go around was a bit more challenging? What are we to do with the Redskins, who played well and beat a division opponent? They were 29th in my last rankings. The Bills played like a top 10 team, but isn't it an overreaction to place them that high?
Yes. There are some movers and shakers this week, like Chicago, who earned a giant jump due to Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, and the biggest reason they were good last season (see below.) Otherwise, women have always told me I need to be more vulnerable, so I tried to accomplish that here, especially with teams like the Lions.
Onward and upward ...
