“The Reality Check” Week 1 NFL Power Rankings

September 03, 2013 | Glenn Clark

Ryan Chell’s Rankings…

32. Oakland Raiders

They’re an NFL team?

31. New York Jets

They have nobody at quarterback and running back.

30. Jacksonville Jaguars

If you’re a Cecil Shorts fantasy owner, you’re in luck. They will be behind in games early and often.

29. Buffalo Bills

Doug Marrone looks happy to be there. That will last two weeks.

28. Tennessee Titans

This team could be a playoff team if Jake Locker decides to be a NFL QB. I say he won’t.

27. Cleveland Browns

Brandon Weeden had a great preseason. But it’s not preseason anymore.

26. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Need to put behind their slide from a year ago.

25. Arizona Cardinals

Carson Palmer is the biggest fake in football…

24. San Diego Chargers

How long will it take for Ryan Mathews to get hurt?

23. Detroit Lions

Ryan Broyles could catch 80 passes for them this season. How many of them will be relevant will be the question…

22. Carolina Panthers

It’s all on their defense…and if they look like the Ravens game, I’m worried about the rest of this division…

21. Minnesota Vikings

I think their QB holds them back…

20. St. Louis Rams

What happens if Tavon Austin doesn’t click immediately?

19. Philadelphia Eagles

Michael Vick could be the perfect QB for Chip Kelly’s offense…

18. Miami Dolphins

I’m buying in…

17. Dallas Cowboys

Could go either way.

16. Chicago Bears

It didn’t take long for Brandon Marshall to act up…

15. Kansas City Chiefs

If Jamaal Charles stays healthy, his team is vastly different.

14. Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck in year two. Be afraid.

13. Washington Redskins

Did you really think RGIII was missing Week 1?

12. New Orleans Saints

They’re back…

11. Pittsburgh Steelers

Can Isaac Redman carry this team?

10. New York Giants

David Wilson is the guy for them at least till Week 8.

9. New England Patriots

I got a call this week to catch passes from Tom Brady.

8. Cincinnati Bengals

This team will be DANGEROUS if Andy Dalton goes to the next level.

7. Baltimore Ravens

Need to find a go-to receiver out of this group…

6. Atlanta Falcons

Steven Jackson will be the best back in the NFC. Book it.

5. Denver Broncos

I wonder how Peyton Manning is going to distribute the ball…

4. Houston Texans

DeAndre Hopkins could be a huge weapon for them…

3. San Francisco 49ers

Colin Kaepernick and Anquan Boldin appear to be on the same page…

2. Seattle Seahawks

Their defense is that good…

1. Green Bay Packers 

Maybe Tandon Doss is the answer to their SB run…(giggles)…

Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…
